  1. Oops, according to a Roon expert it was a dumb question. Of course everything goes through the core, so using Roon would result in the URendu performing two tasks, sending audio files to core and receiving them back from core. Doesn't sound like making the Urendu's job easier. I must admit that my first experience with computer audio was using Soundirok, so I will go back to this, or MConnect and MPD, to play with this. Cheers Grantn
  2. Hmm, I think I need to get one of these, once I have confirmed from the Roon experts, how Roon works.πŸ˜† Cheers GrantN
  3. Wondering if the storage on Rendu could be seen and accessed by Roon? Then, would Roon pick up the files from storage (Rendu), drag them over Ethernet to core and then pass them off, again over Ethernet, to the endpoint (Rendu)? Or, what might be really cool, does Roon tell storage (Rendu), to send files directly to the endpoint (Rendu)? Any thoughts? Cheers GrantN
  4. Ah always the salesman eh. 🀣 Yes it is on my radar and the usbRegen was used so that my old USB dac could be powered by a separate LPS.😊 My new USB dac has it's own power supply. Great news. Cheers Gn
  5. Cool. Curious was from uRendu to usbRegen and A>B was from usbRegen to dac. I think you are saying that output from uRendu no longer requires usbRegen? Cheers Gn
  6. Hi guys I was wondering about proximity to other equipment and any associated effects on the system. I am going to use the etherRegen with an UltraRendu and expected to have them, if not on top of, then very close to one another. In the interests of keeping cables short, I intended to connect uRendu to USB dac using Curious regenlink (200mm), usbRegen and the adaptor that came with the usbRegen. So, etherRegen, uRendu, usbRegen and dac all very close together. Hopefully not too silly a question, but if I need to provide greater separation, where do you think it would be best to provide this? Best wishes Grant
  7. Well I am now enjoying my old CD collection via the LSX's. Having used the microJukebox to burn my CD's to the Hard Drive in the machine, I am now using it as a UPnP/DLNA server, using MINIM Server and mconnectLite as a controller and the LSX performing its duties as a DLNA Renderer etc. I can now swap seamlessly between using MINIM Server and Spotify over the network and the service provider "basic" modem/router is up to the task of running audio by either source. Still disappointed that the Kef supplied Stream App really struggled to get past about the 3rd minute before loosing contact with the speakers. I hope it works successfully for anyone with a serious modem/router, however for those of us that don't get through much more than 50GB of data a month and therefore cannot justify a fancy network system, then the combination of Minim Server and mconnectLite is a great alternative. Cheers Grantn
  8. Yes, well skilled in the fine art of peeling away the layers just enough to reveal the important stuff...
  9. Cebolla You are a Giant on the computer sceneπŸ‘ Player Lite sounds great and it JUST WORKS!!! I will pay the $10 for the adless version. Thank you for helping me through this. Kindest Regards Grantn
  10. Hi Cebolla Your last sentence is correct, however the only advice I have received from Kef is to spend a further 25% of the the value of the speakers on a modem-router, because my current one, which happily works with Spotify and Netflix is not good enough to run Kef Stream. I am guessing it is a truly grotesque and inefficient bit of programming from a big organisation whose primary business is not in computing. Anyway what happens is the App looses connection with the speakers part way through a song, the mJb finishes playing the song and awaits further instruction from Kef Stream, which has already gone AWOL. I will try to find a third party App that avoids Kef Stream, like Spotify does and use that. The logical thing to do is get Roon, but that apparently places too high a demand on the computer in the mJb. Although I should ask SGC if that is only relevant where the mJb is feeding a usb DAC, rather than feeding an end point. Guessing it will be the same, although no harm in asking them. Cheers Grant
  11. I have had help over here: but will add information here as my time and journey with the LSX's continues. Regards Grantn
  12. Okay, proof of concept, it worked briefly so will now focus on burning my CD's and getting a 1/2 decent wireless network sorted. The hard part will be going through the process of figuring how best to move seamlessly between Spotify streaming and the Private Library. We will call this "solved". Cheers and thanks for your help. Grantn
  13. Wooo that is weird, no MPD / DLNA switcher but for a brief moment, 3mins, I had Adele playing from the microJukebox through the LSX's. It stopped and after 10mins cannot get it going again. Guess it must be a poor wireless network using a internet service provider supplied modem/thingy. Will keep trying. πŸ™‚ Cheers Grant
  14. Okay, I have now installed MinimWatch and it is "seeing" the microJukebox. I will go to the Sonicorbiter link above and try to work through this, although the first hurdle will be figuring out why the only option I have when I go to Audio App Switcher is "Squeezelite" and none of the others shown in the first picture above: MPD / DLNA RoonReady HQPlayer NAA Shairport Cheers Grant
  15. Hi Cebolla This is getting messier. Apparently there is a known problem with computers not knowing what to do with .jar files and I think why MinimWatch is not working on my PC. The story: But my computer does not like the "fix": Okay just seen your message and will find JRE. Cheers Grant
