  1. I will also add reading FLAC tags - specifically ratings. If there I don't see it
  2. I have been using InnuOS a bit more lately (vs Roon which I am having issues with). It does sound great. However is there 1) any way to shuffle through tracks? 2) anything like a Radio feature that will use a combination of local/Qobuz content? Ultimately I want it to play continuously without building a queue/long playlist Thanks in advance
  3. Tried 2.0.5 yesterday. And it sounds GREAT. A notch above Roon/Experimental mode IMHO. Which was clearly superior to Roon However I do miss Roon's usability (especially the Radio function which has improved greatly). Not crazy about starting rating over again (Tag>Roon>Innous). Innuos should just read tag ratings. Haven't seen a way to shuffle through tracks. Not a bad start though. Curious if some of my network issues (stoppages) with Roon cease with 2.0
  4. At 250 hours I ended up going back to the FTLF1318P3BTL. Was finding the FTLX1475D3BTL a bit harsh. The 1318 is a bit more liquid sounding in my system Will try the 1475 again later
  5. Received the Finisar SFP+ FTLX1475D3BTL from Mousser yesterday. It is between my OM Deluxe and the ER. No issues although the ER must boot up last. Replaced the FTLF1318PBTL Sounds very good cold out of the box. Looking forward to more serious listening at 250 hours or so
  6. Hello - interested in getting the Finisar FTLX1475D3BTL to run between the OM & ER. Does After Dark sell these separately or only in a package?
  7. Hi @JohnSwenson - I have been battling Roon dropouts since last June. On my 3rd network at this point with the same issues. When you say 10% of the network problems can be bad cables - is that a bad cable anywhere in the home network or would that bad cable have to be in the audio streaming path? Thank you
  8. I use a 7V Farad Super 3 with the ER with no issues. This was Mattijs's recommendation for the ER at the time
  9. I will look for Finisar FTLF1324P2BTL-MC and wait for one to come available. Thanks everyone Hi @kennyb123 that is very generous of you. Thank you. This community never ceases to amaze me! Let me search for a bit and I will PM you once I get antsy (probably soon)
  10. Hello @ericuco I did see that on Ebay but thought the TL-MC was preferred
  11. Hello - Finally finished my 100% UniFi network. Love the control/visibilty it provides. I seem to have moved on from the constant Roon stoppages Just ordered the Sonore OM Deluxe and have the fiber cable Thanks to @kennyb123 for the recommendations The last piece needed for me to try a fiber connection are those FMC's. Getting a bit confused on which one would be best (especially considering availability. From what I can gather below are the 3 best options: I can only find the latter avail (at DigiKey for around $63/ea) My plan would be UniFi Router>Ghent Cat6>OM>Fiber>ER>Sablon LAN>Innuos MKII SE>Phoenix USB>PSA DAC Is that the correct usage? Are there places to get the 1st 2 FMC's or are they discontinued? Are there newer models that are now preferred? Thank you in advance
  12. Hi Kenny, Looks like you have a nice direct/clean run for your network. Mine is a bit more convoluted. Are you going Ethernet out of that ONT or the traditional RG6 to a FIOS cable modem? Really like this UniFi ecosystem. Thanks for the recommendation. The amount of visibility into what is going on is incredible. Setup software is great as well. Been working on isolating my networks/devices (lan,guest, IOT) and firewall rules. So far so good I am interested in your OM>ER fiber run. The OM is a Sonore? Probably with a Farad Super 3 powering it right? I have an Uptone LPS 1.2 lying around. I didn't think there would be much benefit on a short run of fiber like this. I had read there could be issues with too much signal strength on shorter runs. Did you use some sort of attenuator? This is certainly something I could add to my setup. What fiber optic cable are you using? I have 3 flex mini's, a 16 port POE lite switch and an UniFi 6 access point due in soon. Of course Roon recommends only unmanaged switches which I noticed after I bough all this (although I doubt it will be that much of an issue). Can you prioritize traffic on a port on one of these switches? My Zenith will be on that 16 port switch Thanks for all the info. Stay safe!
  13. No improvements on the update to Roon 1.8. I have also upgraded my router to a UniFi Dream Machine. No improvement as of yet. Still have some work to do Anyone else still having these issues?
