  1. I bet that the update changed the permissions on the share. Catalina security model has changed. I would go to sharing and update the settings there.
  2. That is one of the tests I have not finished yet. Before I brought Roon back into the picture I do not think I could here any difference between using any UPnP player to the USB Sig or just playing in the USB Sig on it’s own. I am not sure I understand the network traffic completely on these configurations yet to develop a better sense of what is going on. I am surprised about what I am hearing with Roon. I have to go back and get some time listening. (Work getting in the way of music....)
  3. Jorge, I cannot give you a direct comparison as I do not have an UltreRendu to compare to. I have not gotten an etherRegen to put into my system so I do not know what it would do for me, yet.. My testing to date is as follows. Playback using only the USBridge Sig and MoOde OS. Then with MoOde OS set in Squeezelite with Roon on my NUC (Roon ROCK). (I will update my system diagram today). I have not tested bridging or much of anything else. I have done a little swapping between Ethernet and Fiber Optic network connections on the USBridge Sig and I am not hearing any difference. I can make two definitive statements about my system. No endpoint I have tested sounds better than the USBridge Sig running MoOde 6.4 stand-alone . Second there is still a difference/improvement in sound quality running with Roon server to the USBridge Sig as a Squeezelite renderer. There are more folks out there listening to the USBridge Sig now. I am very interested in what others say. Bob

  9. In further testing I was unable to reproduce the results from before. I was testing with an older Sonic Transporter and small Synology 416Slim NAS. A few days ago I had been running with a different systems design (still shown in my configuration on my profile. In my custom server I tried putting an M.2 SSD inside and it was noisy. I have an external Spinning Drive that has a separate power supply. I have done A/B testing and could not hear the difference. I had stopped maintaining the external drive in favor of the NAS for simplicity of data management. I am in the process of making some other changes and that HD is back in my system. I have another article in the works about where I am today. I am not sure that there are perfect cables or perfect networks. I run enterprise networking hardware to keep up my skills in that realm and have the reliability I need (Ubiquity).
  10. I have been running for a few days with the new MoOde 6.4 as a Squeezelite renderer. I have had a couple of glitches where music stopped. Two new software releases in one week, GAAK! I am very happy with what MoOde 6.4 did to sound quality. Roon 1.7 may have improved things on that also. Seems to round out the edge I was getting on UPnP. A lot more listening to do. Remember that the Shanti Power Supply is an interesting bargain. I have a second USB-Sig and Shanti on the way for my headphone listening.
  11. Thank you I will go listen to as much as I can find. It is sort of like me picking different "versions" of Pictures at and Exhibition. So many variants!
  12. Rajiv, I do not have a Mahler 4 in my library. Would you say this is “the one to have” or would you start with a different interpretation? For the price I should just get it! bob
