  1. Means that the app has not been updated for Catalina. You can bypass gatekeeper by right clicking on the app in the finder and selecting open.
  2. So what is missing that is in Tidal. If you can tell them what is not there they might be able to help! Just and idea.....
  3. It will be interesting to hear about your experiences with these new experiments. We try to mostly report on actual experiences here!
  4. My ECC RAM arrived today and I have installed it in my machine. I did some listening and I want to wait some more to see if it "burns in". I have been using consumer ECC RAM in my server for nine months. I will give this some time. The system sounds different. Some of the electronic music I listen to is amazing. A couple of the female vocals felt a bit edgy. Try "Evil Dub" from Trentoemoller "The Last Resort". BT "Our Dark Garden" from. If the starts are Eternal So are you and I "Flaming June" from Electronic Opus Annie Lennox "Into the West" from. The Lord of the Rings the return of the king I should get some listening time this weekend.....
  5. I have both. I have the Allo USBridge Sig that has the Digi One board in it. I will be testing them over the next weeks and I will try spdif when I get a better cable or two! Most of my testing is the USB side! There is a lot of effort put into the Digione to make spdif sound great. The spdif in the Primo is right off of the Tinkerboard. The Primo has had a lot of effort put into the analog out. One could make assumptions from that! So it does not really answer your question I hope the information helps.
  6. Which Allo Device? What are your planned control points? Do you have locally stored music?
  7. Maybe start a thread on CAF give us an outline of what you heard and what you liked/disliked!! Hope you enjoy the show!
  8. I tried with MoOde and it did not work. Stream error user not authorized I think: I will try to volumio tomorrow. I could REALLY use this right now for some listening tests I need to do.
  9. OK I have restarted everything and I am trying to play from several sources, Internet radio, tidal, local files and there is no audio. I am playing a tidal track right now and there is no audio from the Kii Speakers. NOTE: If I reboot the SRSEO and hook it up to my Chord Mojo all works fine so this is an interaction with the Ki Threes!

  10. FelipeRolim Thanks for the outline. If you would care to actually document the hardware, software, settings so others can replicate your work that would be great. It would be best on anther thread.. so we can continue the Euphony stuff here. I work hard to share my design, setup, settings, and results for others to use. I would love to see what you have done and how it makes you feel and your system sound!
  11. I went back to my other microsd card the one that came with the player. NOTE I also tested with the Chord Mojo and everything seems to work properly with it On the Kii Control Sqlite stays connected but I am not getting any music.

  12. I had been running Signature Rendu SE optical as a Roon endpoint and I want to go back and try the local data stored on the big card I purchased from you and run LMS. I updated the OS to the latest version: Version: 2.7Model: Signature Rendu SEIP Address: 192.168.1.178MAC: D0:63:B4:01:E2:91Serial Number: 01EE22 I installed LMS and Sqlite. When I start Sqlite it stops. I have uninstalled and re-installed. I have shutdown and powered back up. I am stuck. Where should I go next.? bob
  13. I am interested in the system design. I have never been able to get windows to sound right to me. The more we know the better.
  14. Rajiv, Thank you for the ongoing and thorough reporting of your journey here. I find your style of reporting to be very engaging and insightful. Your methodology is consistent and clean. There is no pretense here. What is most interesting to me about the dCS Bartok and the Rossini is that dCS also seems to have a clear line of thought in their products. It is good to envision through your reporting the "value" represented by these products. I like your use of the Ayre QX-5 Twenty as a reference device to ground the relationships of devices in your reviews. Sometimes I think we are headed off to "A Bridge to Far". But, boy is it fun! Bob
