  1. So for 4.10.3-38: regular version is amd64.deb & amd version is amd_amd64.deb. Correct? I have an Intel i7-6700k CPU which indicates instruction set extensions SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX2. Is there an advantage to using the amd desktop version w/ Ubuntu 20.04LTS?
  2. Based on your info given, inspection of cable connections should be pretty straight-forward ... USB output from music server > USB input of DAC left & right RCA output of DAC > left & right RCA input of Preamp left & right RCA output of Preamp > left & right RCA input of Amp
  3. What an odd turn this thread has taken (so much for the better I might add). Fascinating, educational stuff the last 10 pages or so (esp. w/ the removal of the OP to prevent it from spiraling back down to the gutter). Kudos to Chris 🏆 for letting this discussion advance to a higher level. Who'd a thunk it ?
  4. @bluesman, Great post! Sleepy Time Time from Live Cream is one of my Cream/ Clapton all time faves (I really like N.S.U. from that album too). Look, Clapton is great. To deny this is absurd. He is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for his contributions to 2 bands (The Yardbirds & Cream), & as a solo artist. He ranks in the Top Ten of greatest guitarists of all time in most polls by critics & musicians (Jeff Beck is my favorite w/ Hendrix close second). @AudioDoctor, If you don't like Clapton's music, that's perfectly fine. Not everyone's cup of tea. You
  5. Fair enough. That should apply to you as well since you have made several derogatory jabs towards "a novel way to massively improve SQ" crowd. Your feelings are clear on the matter. No need to prattle on about it.
  6. I updated to versions 4.9.0 Desktop & 4.1.12 x 64.7z NAA Monday morning after seeing blueninjasix post Sunday lauding this latest version. My system & HQPlayer settings are listed in my signature. My NAA has 8gb memory. I have been glitch-free after listening to approx. 20 hrs. of music. So nothing broken here!
  7. Include me in the "WOW" Camp concerning the latest 4.9 release along w/ NAA improvements: Incredible instrument delineation, better micro-detail, tauter bass, finer delicacy, more engaging ... It's like a major component upgrade in performance. Jussi is a Magic Man!
  8. 2 messages sent... 1st to purchase both for $140 (if correct amount) & 2nd to purchase a single cable for $125 if both are $240 total.
  9. Correction to my previous post (since I can't edit it now) ... In the interview, one fascinating point (45:30 mark) : Geddes thinks contributing factors for "optimized sound" are: 5- 10% electronics, 10-20% room & 70- 85% speakers!
  10. Excellent interview Jason! Dr. Earl Geddes is such a pioneer in the audio industry, but yet he is so grounded & willing to share his knowledge. I have enjoyed seeing him post on several different forums at times. I truly regret never having owned his speakers. I have applied his multi sub approach with very good results. In the interview, one fascinating point: He recommended a 2 channel audio system budget of electronics 10-15%, Room 15- 20%, & Speakers 65- 75%! Fyi.. I looked into the DIYAudio Czech poster Marcel that he was so impressed with re: acoustic wav
  11. I picked-up a 32gb M.2 2280 Optane ssd off fleabay & want to use it with Ubuntu 20.04 OS installed in a i7-6700k music server. Current HDD has dual boot Win10 Pro & Ubuntu 20.04 with music files on separate partition. Anything special that I need to do beyond just installing OS w/ Ubuntu Live USB stick & prioritizing mobo bios to boot Optane ssd?
  12. I just grabbed an Intel NUC7CJYH w/ 8gb Ram & 120gb SSD off Fleabay today as an upgrade to my existing NAA x5-z8350 mini pc. Since I currently boot a thumbdrive w/ HQPlayer NAA image naa-411-x64.7z, does it matter if I leave the SSD for Win10 Pro Qobuz streaming & home theater video streaming duties? (versus replacing SSD w/ SXDC card). Or is the SSD electrical noise still an issue even if not being used while NAA thumb drive is operating?
  13. I thought HQPlayer only supports Ubuntu up to 18.04? (seem to recall Jussi holds off until Nvidia has drivers available for latest LTS release). Do you use Ubuntu Studio 20.04 w/ HQPlayer 4.7? Is so, what advantages do you see over the garden variety Ubuntu? (I had tried Studio 15.04 release some time ago & didn't see much advantage over Ubuntu 15.04 for my system).
  14. Not a surprise. HQPlayer 4.6 Desktop DSD256/ ext2/ ASDM7EC (or ASDM5EC for that matter) resulted in drop-outs w/ my dual boot i7-6700k Win10 Pro (Server case/ mobo cooled by 2 low rpm Noctua fans). Haven't tried HQP 4.7. Ubuntu 18.04 HQPlayer 4.6 & latest 4.7 Desktop DSD256/ ext2/ ASDM7EC works great w/ no drop-outs.
  15. Houston, we have lift-off !!! Win10 mini pc w/ Bubble UPnP Server, Audiophille Renderer 2.3ver & MS Visual C++ x86, iPhone X Linn Kazoo app = successful paying of Qobuz high resolution music 😎 I humbly bow down to @left channel, @Ran, @Cebolla for sharing your wealth of knowledge. Now back to enjoying Qobuz Studio hi res tunes!
