  1. Hi there Ted, Bear in mind that no index works without a name. Nevertheless, lets see if we can develop a logical approach using 2.0 to find your lost albums. Do you remember the names of any band members? If so, just search for the [Artist] and you can then list all their album covers in a consolidated listing from across all your sources. Any idea of the band’s name? May begin with ‘V’. Click [A-Z], type <V> and scroll through the resulting Album covers. Not there? The next step is to search all Album covers but if you have thousands, as you indicated, y
  2. Tidal seems to have the same status as Qobuz in that there’s simple way to input your account password and log on. I don’t have a Tidal account, but on my beta version Tidal looks like its ready to roll. Check with Innuos if you want to be 100% certain. 1. Compilations are filed under the album name AND the Artist name is Various or Various Artists, so there are several easy ways to access all those type of Albums as a group from pretty much anywhere. You can search for Various, you can hit ‘V’ in artist search, or you can click on any Artist appearing on the Album, then look under ‘Appe
  3. Hi Mark, I use a Statement. I previously used a Zenith MkII SE which I was extremely happy with and which I’ll bet will sound incredible with 2.0 I’m afraid I can’t comment on the actual architecture and coding of InnuOS 2.0 as I don’t have that information. Cheerio!
  4. Hi Jorge, You’re very welcome. No afraid I never tested Roon + Squeezelite on InnuOS 1.x. My system was delivered by the dealer with Roon active, but after I tried and compared it to InnuOS I switched off Roon and haven’t been back, given that I’ve read nothing on the internet to encourage me. Let me share a typical listening session. I walk into the room, sit down, hit the Power button on the remote and the amp switches out of standby and Swiss Radio Classics starts to play. I turn up the volume and listen to what’s playing for an hour or so, then I switch to iPeng, My apps,
  5. Hi there, My comments about speed were in comparison to how long it takes to load all the meta data of my Qobuz library (favorites) or to load a selected album into RAM prior to play. In both cases a delay of around 10 seconds was the norm. I put it down to network speed, but with 2.0 there’s almost no perceptible delay. With Innuos 1.0, files selected for playback (tracks and albums) were cached and played back from RAM. I am really not sure if 2.0 does this any differently. I know that 2.0 has a different kernel and that it does not poll the server but rather idles until sent something.
  6. Background For the past 2 weeks I have been listening to my system using a beta version of Innuos’s new InnuOS 2.0 server operating system and music player SW. The purpose of my evaluation are three-fold: to provide initial user feedback on sound quality and usability and report any defects or perceived shortcomings I may identify. This is a good place to mention that I have no ties, financial or commercial to Innuos, other than as a paying customer and longterm user of their servers and associated SW. During the installation of 2.0, I asked InnuOS director Nuno Vitorino if it woul
  7. Hi AS, Happily someone has volunteered to help me. My problem was with the operation of the website and not wanting personal information to appear on-line when I clicked or omitted to click the correct box. Thanks for the response 😊
  8. If I need to place cables close to a wall or route them behind a rack I don’t want them touching the floor, other cables or picking up vibration from the rack. So I make up these little gizzmos. A piece of draft excluder foam, a cable tie and an adhesive thingamybob. Costs about $0.10 to make and looks very neat when you position to cab.tie lock at the bottom as you mainly see the end profile. The cable makes very light contact with the foam, travels freely back and forth and is isolated from vibration and carpet static I made this one with a white cab tie so you could see what’s
  9. If you speak Norwegian and would be willing to help me with a Norwegian website I’d love to hear from you. I’ve been looking for some Magico ~SPODs at less than the insane UK price and there is a set for sale on a Norwegian hi-fi website, but i cannot find a way to respond to the advert. If you’d be willing to do me this favour, please send me a PM (personal message) and I’ll provide the details.
  10. I use cables that are very well screened, so they tend to be stiff or mailable and shapeable. I just make sure they don’t touch the outer edge of the rack, which is where component vibration is sent to die. Then all the cables can be individually shaped and routed so they only cross at 90 degrees and don’t run parallel. All screens from all cables are drained through fine silver wire to a central star wired terminal that connects directly to the supplies’ earth.
  11. Hi Marcel, I’ve only used the Mundorf cable in DC applications. Having said that i’ve used it extensively for 6 DC cables and 4 fully wired LPSs. I get exactly what you’re saying about the upper midrange emphasis, because that’s exactly how it sounds during the mid to latter break-in period, but once fully broken in that translates into resolved space, which is what delivers the purity and holographic nature. In my experience, whatever sounds the worst during break-in are where the majority of gains lie once the break-in process is complete. For example, beautifully deep and solid, ric
  12. Hi Marcel, I have both Neotech UPOCC and Mundorf silver/gold DC cables (JSSG360). The Mundorf takes a long time to run in but once it does its incredibly transparent, pure, 3 dimensional and holographic. Not a trace of any ringing or indeed any impurity in the upper mids. The Neotech is a very nice cable but in my system the Mundorf is better by a considerable margin, once its been in the system 2-3 months.
  13. Power cord burn takes a LOT longer than a week. Remember you are drawing only very small currents with these network devices. I use an adaptor to hook up my power cords to a reciprocating fan, 24 hours a day for a couple of weeks.
  14. The jump in sound quality was pretty large....for starters it removed a substantial emphasis in the treble region that resulted in everything sounding a lot more natural, pure and enjoyable. Not to mention making the sound more detailed and spacious. The actual mod was quite easy. Undo 4 corner screws and release a couple of side clips and the RE650 splits down the middle, leaving the SMPS and wall plug in one half and the entire networking infrastructure + heat sink in the other side. Very convenient. There is a square six pin socket on the network side that mates with a fixed 6
  15. This is based on hardware. When i first set up my system i needed a way to get the data stream from the ISP router up to my hi-fi room, a direct distance of ca 15m. I evaluated several different means including some cheap Cat5 ethernet cable, CAT6 Synergistic Research ‘Actve SE’ ethernet, wi-fi direct, mesh wi-fi (2 different brands). By far the best turned out to be a TPLink RE650 extender using its 5GHz band, with the 2.4Ghz band, polling and all LEDs switched off. Adding a TPLink Archer AC5400 tri-band router meant that i could dedicate one 5GHz band solely to audio. I then mo
