  1. Well it is easy to see that it is not a continuos stream if you look at the router. Activity at the port during start of playback in Qobuz via Roon, tops out at 200Mbps then no activity or very little during playback. This is the activity filling the buffer when playing Qobuz in dCS Mosaic, peaks at 3.5Mbps during the whole song.
  2. Did I write that the stream is realtime? I just wrote the differences between streaming Qobuz in Roon or via dCS Mosaic software. Roon buffers the whole song directly to disk in ROCK machine then plays to the buffer in my dCS endpoint and playing Qobuz directly in dCS Mosaic runs a buffer with a couple of seconds in it.
  3. In my system with Roon/Qobuz the song is buffered as soon as I hit play. I can see the activity on my routers SFP port is high for a couple of seconds after that I can disconect the SFP from router to switch and the song will finish from my Roon ROCK machine via the switch to my endpoint. Before I moved to Qobuz I had Tidal and that worked the same way have tried it on short songs, long song and it always worked this way in my sytem. If I use Mosaic on my dCS network bridge to play Qobuz I get a continius stream instead.
  4. Does the Phoenix need 5Vdc on the USB input to function or would a USB cable with just datalines work?
  5. @kennyb123 I got Roon from the begining mostly because the way it integrated my Tidal account and local files but since I moved over to Qobuz most of my listening is just Qobuz so the need for integration is not that big anymore. I really do like how Roon works, the radio function for example find music I would never have found on my own but if for example the new Innuos OS2.0 and their new app would also do something similare that could be something to consider. Quite a few members on a Swedish forum uses Innuos servers and now Phoenix USB re-clocker is making a buzz s
  6. Still Taiko them self wrote this. Hello All, We have conducted a thorough investigation in the past 3 weeks since the much discussed Roon update to build 537 launched. We have not been able to find any difference whatsoever relative to the prior build. The update we applied following initial reports of degraded sound quality should be considered as a “general sound quality improvement update” not related to Roon, in stead of a “fix for a sound quality degradation caused by the Roon update itself”. I hereby retract any statement made by, or on behalf of Taiko Audio that there doe
  7. This might be a bit system depending also where the fiber is in the mix. In my system the fiber just have high activity when I start playback on a song in Qobuz , when Roon has buffered it the activity on the fiber ports are really low (easy to monitor in the EdgeRouter). So during playback the stream in my system goes from NUC to eR A-side to B-side and then to my dcs Network bridge and only over copper cables. After a couple of seconds when I start a new song I can disconnect the SFP in my eR and the song will still finish.
  8. This is a spec on a single mode fiber. Maximum Attenuation: <0.35dB/km (1310nm) So 10m will give 0,0035dB attenuation and that is nothing, so adding a bunch of cable and think you atteunate the signal that is not going to work.
  9. Yes. The power in is on the A-side so to say and powers the stuff inside that is connected to the 4 RJ45 and SFP port then there is a DC-DC converter with low capacitance that supplyes the B-side with power so the B-side is isolated both on the data and power from the 5 connections on the A-side.
  10. This also happened to mine. It is the potentiometer that is used to change the voltage that is bad. This will affect 19V and the adjustable 19V. It is not that hard to find the right potentiometer and solder of the cable and put a the new one in.
  11. As I wrote I made brackets to mount it to the wall so air can move around it.
  12. I have posted this picture before but it works really well with dual heat sinks and I have it mounted to the wall with two brackets in my networkcabinet. Temperature went from 48C to 38C so I am happy with this modification and the heat sinks are mounted with double-sided heat-conducting tape so it is reversable.
  13. @TwinPeak if you have configured the router and it is up and running you can just use a webbrowser to log in to it. If you use the regular network just use that in the browser to log in. User name and password by default is in the manual.
  14. If you dont get it to work even if the SFP port is part of the switch in your router I would get new SFP modules and cable. Why did you get the BiDi SFP modules from Ubiquiti? Just get their regular UF-MM-1G SFP modules and their multimode cable with dual LC connectors at each end. I have used that combo with my eR and that works.
  15. @TwinPeak log in to your router, select dashboard. Look at the bottom at switch0 and press the button to the right. Select VLAN and see if eth5 (sfp port) is a part of the switch if it is not that check the box besides eth5. This makes the sfp a part of the switch that talks to the other ports.
  16. @bailyhill HD Plex have separated grounds. As long as a psu even with common ground just supply the eR and stuff o the A-side you dont defeat any isolation that the eR does between A-side and B-side.
  17. The eR runs hot not much to do about that, many have some sort of extra heatsink to keep it cooler. I have owned two SR4 driving SOtM equipment and they do get warm to the touch but not as warm as the eR. I have a HD Plex and that have a much bigger powersupply than a SR4 so that will run cooler with the same load. My NUC7i5BNH with Roon ROCK supplied with 12V draws 0,8A when playing music with Roon (no DSP in ROON) so in my system the NUC acctually draws the same power as my eR.
  18. As the modem provides a WAN (wide area network) connection from your ISP you need to have the router with firewall and DHCP first in the chain so you get your LAN (local area network). If you get more noise I cant say that but unless you get it to work first I dont see the point of being concerned about that right now.
  19. I think the router have one blue port (WAN) that you connect to your modem and from one of the yellow ports (LAN) you connect to the eR.
  20. If the ISP modem have no router I think you need to go from modem to routers WAN port then from routers LAN port to eR A-side so you get the DHCP function from the router.
  21. You could mate it with a PSU that could deliver much more amps. The amps stated by Uptone is what it draws at different voltages but you always want some headroom.
  22. If I understand @MrKlutz right it works for a while but then looses connection when he uses the SFP so it does work for a while. I live in Sweden but ordered mine from this company. https://www.fiberoptics4sale.com/collections/fiber-optic-products/products/x3lls1fiscz?lshst=collection
  23. I dont know if it is superior but Corning ClearCurve is very good I use that with my single-mode 1310nm sfp modules.
  24. Paul is not alone anymore (think he has one employee) and SR4T are batch built each month so the wait is not that long right now.
  25. Why not get a Paul Hynes SR4T-12 then you can switch between 7,9,12V and see what is best.
