    Roon - Search Record Label On Streaming Service

    Well, the roonies have claimed they don't really pay attention to # of people asking for a feature but perhaps bumping the 4-year-old thread will make an impact on merit alone. Some kind of label-based radio or at least shuffle that reached outside of one's own library would also be amazing.

    Roon RAAT - DLNA/Upnp - Volumio

    The discussion of RAAT vs UPNP is a bit of red herring with regards to sound quality though. That's more a matter of correctness, something software engineers apparently value greatly. I'd be surprised if anyone at roon is saying RAAT sounds better than UPNP. Anyway, in trying to account for the differences in sound some have posited that the heavier CPU overhead of Roon is a factor. This can of worms has been open for some time, as I'm sure you know! Quite a bit of fruitless back-and-forth on the Roon forums.

    Roon - Search Record Label On Streaming Service

    People have asked for this but so far no dice. One workaround for ECM in particular is the fact that founder Manfred Eicher is credited as producer on a great number (1000+ that I can see) of Tidal ECM releases.

    Anyone using HQPD app?

    Right on, thanks very much for the info. Last time I wanted to try an android app I went *too* cheap on some off-brand $50 tablet.

    Anyone using HQPD app?

    I don't have any Android devices, can anyone out there comment on whether something like a Fire HD 8 would be reasonably responsive for this app? I don't have a particularly large library, 5k albums or so.

    Article: Roon 1.6 With Qobuz Integration and More

    Disappointed in the UI changes. Roon has a blind spot here imo. The progress bar is particularly unaesthetic. The uneven top and bottom padding, the muddy quality of the waveform. The tendency for artist pictures to be low resolution and cut off. UI/UX is obviously an art and thus subjective but changes seem haphazard compared to roon's focus on correctness with regard to technical features.

    Sorry. My comment was meant to be a general statement, not a response to anyone in particular.

    HQ Player

    I doubt I would convert my whole library to DSD256 but I'm very excited by the possibilities of "offline" upsampling using HQP4. A quick test shows that its possible to upsample to filters my current machine is not capable of in realtime. Playing .dsf generated with non-2s xtr filters, and using only 10-15% CPU...amazing. I could also see using this to change rate families, or perhaps some kind of first-stage upsampling where further realtime is done by HQPlayer Embedded, etc. What's HQPlayer4 Pro you say? Clearly you don't follow Signalyst on Twitter or Facebook. Hopefully some intrepid forum member will make a dedicated thread.

    @Em2016 Thanks for looking into it. When a track finishes playing naturally via Roon it seems to be getting stuck on idle.

    How long is it meant to keep running? After Roon playback ends with an idle request, HQPlayer continues to use the same CPU% as required by playback until explicitly stopped with the Embedded web UI. It's not coming to a full stop after 5 minutes. Yesterday it was in this state for 5-6 hours until I noticed. But if not reproducible / nobody else is experiencing such then maybe something with my configuration.

    @Miska et al, I find with 4.7 that when Roon playback concludes naturally at the end of an album or playlist, the HQPlayer process continues to use CPU% at the same level as the previously played material. The log shows: 2018/12/15 11:41:07 End of track & 2018/12/15 11:41:07 Next 2018/12/15 11:41:07 Idle request Instead of the following normal message when explicitly pausing / stopping playback in Roon & 2018/12/15 10:46:03 Pause & 2018/12/15 10:46:08 Stop... - 2018/12/15 10:46:08 Network engine stopping... - 2018/12/15 10:46:08 Network engine stopped - 2018/12/15 10:46:08 Playback engine stopped & 2018/12/15 10:46:08 ...stopped Explicitly stopping through the web UI will then bring HQPlayer to a proper halt and there are no issues with initiating further playback. Has anyone else observed this behaviour? cheers

    @Em2016 Those warnings do not indicate a failed install. Start it up and I think you’ll find it has indeed been updated.

    Or a cheap nvidia GPU for CUDA offload. As stated on the previous page even a 1060 is probably enough. It is incredibly effective for closed-form.

    Top right hand corner of the HQPlayer configuration page if Embedded is up to date.

    @Miska Thanks for the new help section -- the perfect amount of information all in one place. Would you say SDM -> SDM upsampling is slightly heavier now with wide/narrow algorithms?
