  1. Hi, I've just tried it in combination with JPLAY FEMTO on a dual optimized PC configuration the sound is just awesome...pure Emotion, music, only music. The best litening I've made with my config. I'm usually using JPLAY FEMTO on a Dual PC configuration with Windows Server 2019 + AO3.0 + Process Lasso + Fidelizer + JPLAY on both computers. Will Diretta be still available after this trial period?
  2. Hi, I Have the same combo here. I'm very interested by your comparison... 😀
  3. I'm using two JCAT NET Card FEMTO, one on my Windows Server 2019 Core + AO3.0 + Fidelizer8.5 + JPLAY FEMTO on my control PC and one on my audio PC with the same software configuration. With these cards I get better soundstage with even more stability, more materialization. Soundstage is more focused with more precision, more width, the relief and the 3D effects are improved too. The other aspect is the improvement concerning the sound itself which is even more natural with more fluidity, better attacks, more velocity. Basses have more authority and they are more powerful but both deep and tight. The Eton 12" of my DIY speakers really appreciate. And another remarkable thing is the purity of the sound. Note that using only one car fistly on the control PC improve significantly SQ but using another on the autio PC adds improvement on SQ.
  4. Hi alicenir, just take a look at this https://community.roonlabs.com/t/no-connection-tidal-qobuz/59562
  5. Thanks a lot for your reply bibo01. I will sent you a personal message with the lspci list.
  6. Hi bibo01, I've taken a look and tried it on my PC player with Gigabyte GAH77M-D3H mobo and it appears that the Ethernet card of this motherboard which is an Atheros GbE LAN chip is not recognized by Gentooplayer
  7. OK, Phil many thanks for your clarifications. I can confirm the excellence of the SQ obtained with AO on Windows Server 2016 it highlights even more the qualities of my Wyred 4 Sound DAC- upgraded to v2se. I thought I get the top of vinyl LP like sounding with my Fedora light optimized configuration but Windows Server 2012 core mode and even more Windows Server 2016 Core mode + AO are beating it by far on this sounding aspect especially with Sound Signature 4 and Digital Filter D. I really like what I'm hearing and very important thing with native DSD playback ability.
  8. I reply myself to the problem I noticed last night. In fact, as English is not my native language, at first time reading the setup guide, I didn’t understand all the subtilty concerning the meaning of “shell replacement” I thought that it was made to start a player but it replace the command prompt window and as Roonbridge has no GUI I get a black screen. I hope I understand now. In fact I haven’t use this feature with Windows server 2012 because I’ve installed GUI mode first and enabled Roonbridge on Windows start up in Windows tray. So switching in core mode I didn’t need to do shell replacement. Is there a way to get Roonbridge running at Windows startup without passing to shell replacement or is it the safer way? Perhaps something to do in registry? Many thanks in advance for any help.
  9. Hi, after letting down Windows Server 2012 and AO during about five years for Linux, in particular fedora Linux distribution minimal install with different players (LMS + Squeezelite then RoonBridge), on my PC player I've decided to return to a Windows server based configuration. This Fedora configuration with Planet CCRMA RT kernel has given me an excellent SQ. But with Linux I was unable to get native DSD playback with my newly upgraded Wyred 4 Sound DAC-2v2se. So I decided to give another chance to Windows Server 2012 + AO configuration as ASIO drivers for my DAC allow native DSD playback. A couple of days ago I've reinstalled my Windows Server 2012 Standard and ordered for an upgrade to AO2.10 (my latest version was 1.26)... Audiophil suggested me to directly download 2.20b6 version. I've installed the drivers for my DAC, my SOtM tX-USBexp PCIe card , Roonbridge and I have setup AO. Wow!! SQ is impressive and finally now better than with my fedora config. I was able to compare both configs as they were installed on two different SSD (better soundstage with more relief and focalisation, deeper but controlled basses, more beautiful sound and even more natural, better attacks, very fluid) and I get native DSD playback!!! Audiophil has improved AO a lot since version 1.26. Today, he has suggested me to try Windows Server 2016 core.... I must convince that SQ has improved again... Incredible.... All the criterias I've written above are even better. Note that my favorite sound signature is 4 and digital filter is D. Congratulations to Audiophil for this good job!!! I apologize bothering him with my emails today. In Windows Server 2016 Core mode I just experience a problem. When I make a shell replacement for roonbridge to get it on windows startup the cmd windows doesn't appear anymore on start up (only black screen). I Have to open task manager with "CTRL + SHIFT + ESC -> File ->Run a new task ->cmd" to open it. Is it a normal behaviour? Note that it is not a big problem as I mainly use this player PC headless.
  10. Many thanks for your reply ksalno. Apparently, SOtM are using their own distribution or a tweaked existing distribution for ARM processor. They have named it Eunhasu.
  11. In fact this is what we can read on Sonore website and Sonore ultraDigital topic on this forum. I suppose it's because Sonore team has build this device especially for their products and they can only certify it works with them. Support for other kind of Linux distribution cannot be provided by Sonore team.
  12. Thanks for the info ksalno. Ok for the AudioByte HydraZ but it is not the same price.. I think that for the moment I will do with DoP. Concerning the Sonore ultraDigital which appears to be the best competitor for me, I've read that it is only for use with Sonore microRendu, ultraRendu, and Signature Rendu SE only on the topic dedicated to this device. So, it is not sure that it works with my fedora 27 light distribution in particular concerning native DSD playback.
  13. Yes, that's what I've read on different forums. There is the MATRIX X-SPDIF 2 Interface USB 32bit/768khz Coaxial-AES/EBU I2S HDMI LVDS too but I'm not sure it is 100% compatible with W4S DAC-2 (DSD playback out of phase or something like that).
  14. Many thanks for your reply Bob, as i'm living in France I'm not sure that the Sonore ultraDigital is available in my country. I'm afraid I'll have to order it from USA at Sonore Webshop and have to pay high customs duties. At this time I'm using a SOtM tX-USBexp PCIe card + sCLK-48 clock in my Roonbridge PC. I wonder if the Sonore ultraDigital provides a better SQ if we except native DSD problems than my SOtM combo. Dom.
  15. Hi from France, I received my Wyred 4 Sound DAC-2 DSDse upgraded to DAC-2 v2se 2 weeks ago. Break-in period is not yet finished but I can already say that SQ has improved a lot compared to DSDse version. For the moment functioning time is about 150 hours. I wonder what the result will be at the end of the break-in period. At this point concerning Jitter Eliminator and filters I really like the Apodizing filter and "lowest" for Jitter Eliminator. But I will investigate this when break-in period will be finished. Another point, I'm using this DAC on a computer as Roonbridge endpoint on a minimal install of fedora 27. According lintweaker xmos-native-dsd I thought that DAC-2 v2se allowed native DSD playback with Linux with an appropriate compiled kernel with appropriate patches. But unfortunately native DSD playback doesn't work and I still have to use DoP.. I've tried other distributions such as DietPi which is supposed to offer native DSD playback with DAC--2 v2se but no native DSD playback too. Apparently the patch which enable native DSD playback with W4S DAC2-v2se seems to wait for a DAC with USB_ID(0x27f7, 0x3002) and mine is 0x27f7, 0x1301. Would that mean some v2Se are ready for native DSD playback with the proper Kernel and others not? So I'm a little disappointed about this. Here is the link to a message posted by Wyred 4 sound in May 26th, 2017: IIs there some news about this? Many thanks a lot in advance for any information. Dom.
