  1. Roon had an outage so I guess I wasn't going crazy, inconvenient for a Saturday night but it is fine
  2. Is Roon down? everything conspiring against me tonight, now Roon cannot logon from my Roon computer, cannot logon to their web, the community site says it is down what's going on?

    HQ Player

    Posted on the Embedded thread but that one has not too much activity and maybe someone could help here Hello everyone, today I connected to my HQPe PC running Ubuntu which is always ON and I installed back in Nov 2020. HQPe shows as Trial not licensed and I noticed the fingerprint changed without me altering hardware, including CPU, RAM, board, SSD, etc. I decided to go back from 4.21.1-60 to 4.20.3-58 still the same "wrong" fingerprint. I wonder if an earlier 4.20 will show another fingerprint. Anyone has experienced anything like this? BTW the softwar
  4. I'm going to answer my own question, there is an advantage indeed using larger packets as big audio files will be transferred in less time more efficiently since these are still buffered. Using smaller packets still will do the job but not as efficiently. So Miska should I enable jumbo frames on my home network and that could be another tick box in HQPe? 😉 Joking of course
  5. As Miska is saying the offload feature on the NICs will take care of processing the packets and dealing with packet fragmentation and reassembly releasing the CPU of doing any extra work. Using larger packets are useful with routers as the tax on routers contrary to what the manufacturers try to sell you is not transfer speed but pps (packets per second) but here we are talking switching with one less encapsulation / de encapsulation process to perform at the network level), let me get back on track. During all my life I have been a Network Engineer, Miska and others have mentioned
  6. Thank you @SwissBear for posting, this looks like an interesting AKM DAC to be used with HQPe The SDA-6 Pro alone will allow PCM384/DSD512, with the SU-2 you could go to PCM768/DSD1024 I was evaluating getting the RME ADI-2 (AKM 4493?) and multichannel with low resolution and this just gets me thinking it could be a better option, granted no bell and whistles like the ADI-2 but for HQPlayer looks very attractive I think I would skip on the SU-2 though ... and a little more will get you a Spring 2 So many choices... Thanks again
  7. Like dctom stated every system is different, I started with the high powered nuc powered by an LPs 12V, then added an endpoint (Allo bridge) powered also by the LPS (7V) there was an improvement, Allo stopped supporting some DACs on their old kernel so replaced the endpoint by a Celeron Nuc (12 V) sounded subjectively like the Allo, maybe not as good, replaced the whole system by a single high powered computer and sounded like the Allo maybe a little better, this PC without the LPS but the HDplex Atx power supply so that's what I'm running now, I think the USB shielding quality on a good mot

    +2 I'm on Focal, exclusively running SDM 256 7EC and SDM 512 ASDM7 for the last 3 months, ESS hardware Project S2 As a matter of fact 4.9.2 allowed me to run ASDM7EC with no drops EDIT: should have added poli-ext2

    This is specific to your example iir:type=peak;f=59;g=+1.95;q=1.4,iir:type=peak;f=75;g=3;q=1.4,iir:type=peak;f=98;g=2.85;bw=1.01,iir:type=peak;f=136;g=-1.8;bw=1.01,iir:type=peak;f=241;g=1.65;bw=1.01,iir:type=peak;f=395;g=-1.2;bw=1.01 Like Miska said you need to use the bandwidth (bw) values or g (Q) values, I entered random values using the peak function, note there are others.

    What Miska said +1 you could use the Matrix tab to create an EQ profile Or since you are using REW you could generate an impulse file in REW directly and use it here (see below) But if you already know the bands I think will be easier to go with the Matrix EQ
  11. For HQP Larry seems these won't be enough, better of with Intel, or so it seems. For work intensive tasks and such well it looks very good for that.
  12. With a stress test (corefreq Atomic Burn) funnily temperatures stay under 72 C, I say funnily because HQPlayer "instructions" made the CPU to reach 83 C @StreamFidelity I am going to follow your advice and try some OC, now that I can see the temperatures, that's the reason I did not OC before as I could not check, I can reach 4.7 with no issues, maybe some undervolting, will see
  13. Apparently Zen 3 temperature support was added to other kernels as well as jl kernel has it Note I'm playing DSD256 EC7 No drops with this content and this filter .... temperatures on the low 70's, different filters could create different load conditions. But don't go back to the 5600X, stick to Intel, still better it seems For example poli-xtr-mp although better core distribution and seemingly slightly lower clock on the "main" 2 cores drops out every once in a while
  14. @jcbenten you are correct on your last post The only reason I quoted you before is because your first post stating Which seemed inaccurate to me as EPYC (same as Xeon) fully supports it, then later on you clarified some other topics, I started reading from the top of the thread, did not check the ones below and replied before reading the rest.
  15. LOL what a misleading video, OMG of course you need to fill in with thermal paste, I followed some other instructions I guess. I'm going to start replying all in one post
  16. Well done, may I add in your case is even more troublesome because of the two extra cards you have there.
  17. My experience with the HDPlex 1. Don't use a thermal paste that is too sticky, more on the liquid (without running all over the place) side, especially for the CPU right panel heathsink 2. Apply generously but without overdoing, just a thin film will do. 3. Obviously you will need plenty of it, it takes some quantity to fill If you can touch the side heatsink and keep your hand and fingers there and your system is going throttle down then you don't have good transfer, under stress I cannot keep my hand on the heatsink, check the copper pipes are not broken or punctur
  18. Last time I checked (Dec 2020) with the Ryzen 5xxx architecture it did not, it was planned for development but don't know, I have to check EDIT: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Linux-5.10-AMD-Zen3-k10temp Which kernel are you running? apparently was planned for 5.10, I'm running the jl kernel currently at 5.4.85-jl+
  19. From their page Operating System Requirements: Windows Windows 10 x64, Windows 8 x86, Windows 8 x64, Windows 7, Windows XP ASIO compatible player required for all Windows platforms Operating System Requirements: Mac Mac OS Mavericks, Yosemite, El Captain, Sierra High Sierra, Mojave I have been considering a multichannel DAC for bi/tri amping and using HQPe matrix engine, Okto DAC, possible candidate, only 192kHz PCM or DSD128 ADI-2 Pro DSD64 PCM 96kHz (I think) Exasound DSD256 or PCM 3
  20. I was thinking exactly the same I have your [email protected] And I can run EC5 but not EC7 with certain filters and content, under Linux the kernel and AL won't report the Temps, and the intracore load distribution has issues too, I switched to Ubuntu and it works a little better, but yeah Intel is better, but the Temps in my case (measuring with laser) seems to be OK.
  21. Hi Jussi, maybe this was asked already, will an NAA attached to a multichannel dac present all dac channels to the HQPe server fully transparently? I guess yes but just confirming. Also have you used the exasound multichannel dac? Does it work flawlessly with the matrix engine?
  22. What a coincidence, running right now a hammer test with memtest on ecc memory just purchased for a truenas machine I built, for nas and data servers it is critical. Mainly because when you use raid you do scrubs and relocate data and backup data constantly and use cache and other intermediate steps which increases the risk of data corruption since your data is read and written more often.
  23. Not officially but it does on certain boards, running a 3700X right now with 128 ECC. AMD EPYC (the server chip, like xeons) fully support ECC It actually occurs very rarely with solar storms mainly or when memory is malfunctioning or overclocked or under voltaged. But the occurrence will affect usually 1 bit which I doubt you will notice. The real danger is data corruption when written to disk but for our audio pcs playing audio I would say it is irrelevant.
