    Thanks for the tip. Yes, I found out very quickly that hapi doesn't support 48 in DSD. I looked at the core clock while running 2 channel output. You are right, in 2-ch output configuration, the core clock frequencies are a little bit higher. Not by much, but they are higher. Probably right on the edge.

    Thanks Miska for the reply. A couple updates: 1) I switched over to use the Merging HAPI DAC over Ethernet (RAVENNA), and the drop out is still there. 2) I turned off WiFi, unfortunately it didn't help. I used HWiNFO to capture core clock while the system is running above configuration. Please let me know if it helps.

    Thanks for your suggestions. I tried 44.1x256 and I still have drop out. I ran LatencyMon, and the system doesn't seem to have an issue with latency.

    I forgot to include the matrix pipeline setting

    I need some help here for my drop out issue. I have played around available settings (Buffer time, Multicore DSP, ...) but nothing fix the drop out. I really appreciate any comment or suggestion. I built a new machine, among other things, to run 6 or 8 channel crossover with HQplayer. The computer spec is below: - HQPlayer 4.6.0 - AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970x - Gigabyte TRX40 Aorus Master motherboard - 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR3200 - 1TB M2 SSD - EVGA RTX2080Ti - Custom water cool loop - Windows 10 pro for Workstation build 2004 (also tried pr
  6. Oh No! I'm in US and I have one coming. Hopefully it goes through the custom okay.
  7. I just ordered one. And according to Alvin @ Vinshine Audio, DSD512 support was delayed to end of the year. And it will be firmware upgrade, no new hardware.
  8. there is no longer an option to upgrade in US. All upgrade has to be done in China.
  9. Would everyone who has upgraded the firmware on their VEGA to share their experience? Does your HW version change? I contacted Auralic recently about upgrading my VEGA to 2.0 firmware. It turns out the upgrade cost is now $350, including both hardware and software, and takes 3 weeks. At $350, I'm not sure if it is worth it.
  10. Thanks Miska! you just nailed it. I didn't turned on my DAC, not knowing it is necessary for the naa to list. Which leads to a different question: if I switch DAC, do I need to reboot the BBB?
  11. I just got a brand new BBB from Amazon. I flashed naa-321-beaglebone image on a 32GB SD card and forced BBB to boot from it. I can see the login screen on the HDMI display. However, HQplayer (running on a Windows PC) couldn't find the NAA. HQplayer had no problem finding networkaudiod running on another Linux PC, so I know it should work. I tried the 311 image, same issue: HQplayer couldn't locate the NAA BBB. I booted the stock image on BBB, and it has no problem ping the internet, so I know ethernet port is not the problem. Any suggestion on what to check?
  12. Thanks for the info. So out of these 2 PCs, which one has the best chance to be able to handle the load?
  13. I'm new to computer audio, especially HQPlayer. So here's my dumb question: My setup is full active 3-way stereo, CD player is my main source. I want to add DRC and crossover to the chain. I will have 6 channel (I2S input) DAC driving 6 channel power amps. 2 fanless PC are available to me: 1) Xeon E5 2630-V3 on Gigabyte X99M w/16GB & GTX950, and 2) I7-6700K on Gigabyte Z170 w/16GB & GTX970 Using HQPlayer, I don't know if either of these machines can handle DSD upsampling and 6 channel convolution at the same time. Now I'm thinking, can I split the task to 2 PC? [PC1: HQPla
