  1. I do not think this is an Innuos issue. Within Roon, using the Synology NAS hostname worked for a long time. But as of last summer it stop working, and the workaround since then has been to use the IP address. (see the Roon forum topics I linked to above) Not sure whether this was due to a Synology DSM update, macOS update, Roon update, or some combination. And so for Roon external storage, you have to assign a static IP address to the Synology NAS. In macOS Catalina, I can still connect to the Synology NAS with its hostname — “smb://synology” or “afp://synology.local” — both of those being recommended within the Synology NAS Control Panel > File Services. Although last October, this article was posted online: Connection Problem Between Synology NAS and macOS Catalina ... with the conclusion that connecting via SMB using the IP address was the most reliable solution. Example: “smb://192.168.0.10” However I've found that using AFP, the native file sharing protocol, to have the best performance. See this article: AFP vs. SMB and NFS File Sharing for Network Clients Thank you. That's the kind of clue I was looking for. If you are successfully backing up to the QNAP using its hostname, I would presume that points the finger at the Synology. I had tried this before, but with no success — creating a sub-folder “Backup” within the NAS shared folder “ZENITH”. But because the Innuos Configure Backup process states: “Enter the Server Name of your NAS into the hostname field. The name must be identical to how it appears on your network.” ... I entered the hostname “synology”, and the shared folder “ZENITH”, but after entering the User/Password, received the error message: “The server had a system error. Please restart the server and try again.” Because of the Roon experience described above, I started the process over. But this time entered the server IP address instead of the hostname. That successfully reached the page “Choose folder for backup” with “Root > Backup” folder displayed. At that time I must have misunderstood the instructions to “choose folder”, thinking since “Backup” was the only sub-folder listed below “Root”, there was nothing to choose. And perhaps also thinking, since there was no button to select next to the sub-folder, there was no action to take. So I selected “NEXT” to proceed and then received the error message again. After reading your comments above, I decided to try the process again. Entered the IP address instead of the requested Server Name, but when I reached the “Choose folder for backup” window, I actually clicked on the sub-folder “Backup” and voila! It configured the backup path! Innuos > Music Library > Configure Backup > Network Folder: //192.168.0.10/ZENITH/Backup So thank you both for your comments. It motivated me to try yet again! I will now run the Backup process and see what happens.
  2. Continuing my exploration of this issue with the Hostname and Synology NAS. With InnuOS version 1.4.3 There are two locations where the user can input the NAS shared folder path by entering the server name or its IP address: 1) Configuring Your Server > Music Library Configuration 2) Configuring Your Server > Integrating Music From a NAS Shared Folder But the Configure Backup process states: "Enter the Server Name of your NAS into the hostname field. The name must be identical to how it appears on your network.” I have inquired with Innuos Support if they could modify the Configure Backup process, so that it would also work by entering the server name or its IP address. And if they could add that change to InnuOS version 1.4.4. This might provide a solution to the Hostname issue. I have not received a reply from Support regarding my inquiries. But given the COVID19 situation, patience is key.
  3. I recently posted a topic in the Roon Community forums about the Synology NAS Hostname no longer working in Roon > Settings > Storage. And there was another topic on that subject dating back to last summer. Roon does not add Synology shared folder via Hostname No longer connecting to SMB shares on Synology via Hostname Attempting to add a Synology NAS shared folder using the Hostname fails with an error message. smb://synology/Music But when you use the IP address instead of Hostname, the Synology NAS shared folder is added successfully. smb://192.168.0.10/Music I wonder if this same issue is the reason I can not configure a backup to the Synology NAS shared folder within Innuos Settings? Music Library Configuration The Innuos online manual section: Configuring Your Server > Music Library Configuration Describes adding a NAS shared folder to the Innuos server, by entering the server name or its IP address, and then the path to the folder containing the music. Integrating Music From a NAS Shared Folder The Innuos online manual section: Configuring Your Server > Integrating Music From a NAS Shared Folder Describes integrating a NAS shared folder into the Music Library by inputing the server name or its IP address, and then the path to the folder you'd like to add. However ... Both of those steps require access to the section: Settings > Music Library > Configure NAS Shared Folders Which is not available if you have chosen Roon as the Music Server Integration. And the Configure Backup process states: "Enter the Server Name of your NAS into the hostname field. The name must be identical to how it appears on your network."
  4. Has anyone had success configuring a NAS backup? I can successfully backup to an external USB drive, but when I go through the Configure Backup steps for Network Folder, the process fails: "The server had a system error. Please restart the server and try again. If the problem persists please contact Innuos Support ([email protected])" I've reached out to Innuos Support. Innuos 1.4.3 MacOS 10.15.4 SOtM sNH-10G Switch Synology Model: DS1815+ Current DSM Version: DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 4
  5. Thank you Josh. I looked closely at the files on my archive drive, and was surprised to find two copies of So. Somehow I'd completely forgotten about this. PG1 (WAVE 24/96, Date Created 04/01/15) PG2 (WAVE 24/96, Date Created 04/01/15) PG3 (WAVE 24/96, Date Created 04/09/15) PG4 (WAVE 24/96, Date Created 04/02/15) So (WAVE 24/96, Date Created 08/04/16) So (FLAC 24/48, Remastered 2012, Date Created 10/15/12) Up (WAVE 24/44, Date Created 08/04/16) Us (WAVE 24/96, Date Created 08/04/16) When I purchased the collection of 180 gram Vinyl 45RPM Half-Speed Remasters with Hi-Res Download Cards, the downloads resulted in .zip files that unpacked into WAVE files. So I must have purchased the FLAC version of So independently, and probably before (?) the Vinyl Collection was made available. Does that look like the correct one? Thanks!
  6. "...the TBVO crown for Peter Gabriel’s So is resoundingly awarded to the ‘12 hi-res download." Great article! But by the time I got to the punch line I'd lost track of the contenders. Perhaps due to a late night read. I purchased the collection of 180 gram Vinyl 45RPM Half-Speed Remasters specifically to get access to the the Hi-Res Download Cards that were included. (Peter Gabriel 1, Peter Gabriel 2, Peter Gabriel 3, Peter Gabriel 4, So, Up, Us). I don't own a turntable. Are those downloads the same as the TBVO crown quoted above? Thanks in advance! P.S. those LPs are available for sale if anyone's interested. They've never been played and I never got around to listing them anywhere.
  7. Never mind. After clicking on the blue button "Listen on Qobuz" approximately 37 times... it finally opened up inside my Qobuz account on a web browser. Sheesh! I was then able to subscribe and it's now available within Roon.
  8. And can someone instruct me how to get this link into Qobuz inside Roon?
  9. Ahh! Thanks for the detective work. I'll exercise patience.
  10. Mmm. Perhaps they rescheduled for a future issue. Don't see it listed for Issue #167 - January 2019.
  11. I don’t yet have a Mutec REF10, but understand that it provides reference outputs with both 50ohm and 75ohm impedance. Is there any advantage to ordering the sCLK-EX clock & master clock input as 50ohm or 75ohm? Thanks for any feedback to this or the previous questions!
  12. Is there any advantage to ordering the sNH-10G configured as 12V instead of the standard 9V? The sNH-10G has three power options: - 9V (standard) - 12V optional when installing sCLK-EX - 6.5V ~ 8.5V optional when installing sCLK-EX The SOtM sPS-500 Power Supply provides four options: - 7V, 9V, 12V, and 19V The Uptone Audio UltraCap LPS-1.2 and JS-2 Linear Power Supply both provide four options: - 5V, 7V, 9V, and 12V
  13. Just downloaded the sNH-10G manual and noticed the illustration showing an example of connections. They have the NAS connected to an SFP port with an optical cable. I presume that's not necessarily a recommendation, but just to show one of the two SFP ports being used?
  14. baconbrain: “The integration into my upstream signal chain; Router -> Melco -> SE -> Trinnov (all via ethernet bridge) was absolutely effortless.” Another satisfied Zenith SE owner here. Pardon my ignorance, but can you elaborate on the phrase "ethernet bridge?" Is this the same as a bridged LAN that Romaz and others have utilized? Thanks!
  15. As an experiment I switched from Roon Core to UPnP Streamers and the Music Library became available within the Dashboard. After further reading of the manual, I found the following within the section Installing Roon. With Roon installed, the following innuOS services will be disabled: • Music Library - The Music Library will be removed from the innuOS Dashboard. Any changes to metadata and cover art will now be done through Roon. So I presume that with Zenith in Roon Core mode, the methods for editing metadata or deleting albums would be: • Roon Remote (edit metadata or delete album) • Mac OS application such as Metadatics (edit metadata) • Mac OS Finder (delete album) And that if editing or deleting is done via Mac OS, you would need to force a rescan of the library.
