    HQ Player

    That's easy to do especially if you have static IPs, with dynamic can also be done, and I know you are aware of all that, is it the same provider so you'll stay on-network? Would be interesting to see multicast routed over it, I think there is a way for a layer 2 VPN, never done it myself but will look into it.
  2. Not really, I have a 5600X on an H5 with no video card and I don't experience any drops with poli-sinc-ext2, other filters might but I haven't tested. I'm not doing convolution either and since no video card no CUDA.
  3. You sure Piero? I was under the impression the Windows Desktop license was different than the Linux "Desktop". I could be wrong though EDIT: Just checked the signalyst.com page, yeah it seems to be the same, don't know why I was thinking it was different (and I was not confused with HQPe)
  4. Thanks Larry, I bought it per your former recommendation but haven't used it yet.

    HQ Player

    Hi Nikko, it is my understanding that HQPlayer's DSP volume is preferred over analog, at least if you are using 352 khz plus rate conversion with good noise shapers like LNS and such if doing PCM or good modulators if using DSD 128 plus, these will provide enough margin to keep the noise floor and distortion low, you are already processing so might as well do the attenuation there. If you are planning to bypass HQPlayer at some point let's say go directly to the Dac from another application then it would be nice to have an analog attenuator. The analog attenuator you co
  6. Already posted on the HQPe thread but just in case here too. Just wanted to provide an update on an issue I had before with HQPe fingerprint changes. After testing both Audiolinux and Ubuntu Focal it turned out something in an Ubuntu update apparently (as I never figured what it was) changed temporarily the license fingerprint, going back to Audiolinux and after updating Ubuntu again the fingerprint was rock steady, even changing and renaming of the network adapters the fingerprint was consistent. I suspect the issue I experienced initially might have been related to th

  8. Hi Miska, I noticed you mentioned you are waiting to get the newer AMD video card 6800 IIRC, does this means HQPe should be able to use the AMD RDNA video card as an alternative to Nvidia for convolution and filter offload possibly with better performance that Nvidia?
  9. Great review @bobfa it definitely seems to be an active to consider.
  10. Very nice figures, even more considering HQPlayer is running on your desktop with quite a few background task and not on a dedicated environment. The extra CPU headroom is most welcome. Thank you, great job.
  11. Driver issue on native OSX? so weird, well my AP is upstairs and the system is downstairs, the NAA could not handle the stream, it was pausing and dropping, the new modern Wifi endpoint works better, the AP does beamforming and other tricks, plus the controller, recently I replaced the switch by an ICX7150 IIRC, which provides a good network improvement compared to the former Aruba 2920? man something is wrong with my head, I'm getting old :), harder to remember the models. In any case the endpoint was old, dual antennas but only 2.4 and 2015 tech, the new Giga does pretty well
  12. No problem, I'm glad you took it the good way, I did not mean to be difficult on my reply
  13. Well honestly when I tried it the endpoint NAA was the weakest link, it wasn't a Wifi 6 board but an Intel 5th gen celeron with and old wireless card, nothing like 5g using broader bandwidth or band balancing I don't use any last gen NAA's because of cost and because to me the simpler the better, so it could be possible the failure was not my Wifi infrastructure but the endpoint quality, still I rather avoid it, not very much interested on using wifi unless absolutely needed. Aruba is pretty good, IMO not as good as Ruckus, if you don't have too many adjacent neighbors that's a pl
  14. Onboard wifi included with the Gigabyte B550i AORUS PRO AX, Wifi 6 Please I don't want to that guy but if you read my post again you will notice that I'm just trying to describe my environment on which unfortunately I am forced to rely on Wifi, at the same time on my post I mentioned you should not use Wifi as it is unreliable, will create issues, and HQPlayer won't support it, I tried once to stream from HQPe Server to an NAA Wifi and it FAILED and it will fail on every environment at least with the current technologies, so HQPe --> WIFI --> NO NO NO What I tried doing was
