  1. I manage to make my NUC connect to the WDMyCloud. To do so, I've to enable network related services in AO3. In the JPLAY manual they state that you can use disable network related services option in AO3 if you are using Static IP, but I couldn't manage to make it work. But I will try again. I've compared WDMyCloud DLNA server vs JPLAY Femto Server, and Femto Server is indeed superior. One thing that I really don't like in it, is that you have to navigate in a "folder" way, instead of the various ways(Albums, Artists, etc) that WDMyCloud provide. Local playback is also clearly superior to Tidal, but my local library is pretty small, so I really need Tidal. Related to Tidal there is a reported bug in JPLAY forum in which Tidal + BubbleUpnp don't work well in Hibernate mode. http://jplay.eu/forum/index.php?/topic/3330-tidal-via-android-bubble-up-issue/ I've disable Hibernate mode but I still have problems, after playing 3 or 4 songs, in the middle of the current it skips to the next. I will try to get some help in JPLAY forum. Thank you again @FelipeRolim
  2. Thank you @FelipeRolim You are right, I misunderstand the question that AO makes regarding JPLAY. My router does not allow me to configure static IP for my devices, so I have done it each one. I will plan to buy a router in the future, but I have to do it with caution, because not everyone can replace the one from my network provider. I've installed WS 2019 non core(in the future I plan to install core edition, but right now to simplify I prefer install "graphical" edition) and follow your advices, I'm really happy with the results. But I still have one problem: - Listening to Tidal using BubbleUpnp app to control it, the songs in the queue keeps skipping after 1/2 minutes of play time; Using BubbleUpnp or Fidata(iOS) to play songs from my WD MyCloud DLNA server, all works well; What can cause the problem of BubbleUPNP streaming Tidal? I use an Huawei P10 and I already disable all "Power Saving" options that I found. My JPLAY's settings are the same as in my first post, exception to Hibernate Mode that now is ON. Is there any advantage in using JPlayFetmoServer to stream files from my WD MyCloud over using WD MyCloud DLNA server directly? If so, how can I configure JPlayFetmoServer to use files stored in my WD MyCloud. I may have to map it to work as a normal hard drive in Windows, is that true? If I don't plan to use JPlayFetmoServer at all, is there a way to disable it? In that case should I configure my PC as an AudioPC(in AO, Fidelizer and JPLAY) or I have to still configure it as Single PC?
  3. Thank you @FelipeRolim for your input. Strange that a different Android phone as impact in sound quality. In mconnect I understand, because mconnect downloads the song and then sends it to the JPLAY(so a better cpu, wireless module, etc can impact sound quality), but in BubbleUpnp the song is downloaded by JPLAY. I will try to test it with different devices and see what happens. I will try to implement your recommendations regarding Home Network Configuration. And thank you for your posts here in Audiophilestyle, you are one of the persons that make me give Windows/JPLAY another shoot. After hearing JPLAY, even without any Windows' tweak, I found it's sound quality superior to every Linux Audio Distributions that I've tested(Euphony/Gentoo/Daphile/Volumio). With AO3 + Fidelizer + MinorityClean installed, it's even better. Related to my problems: When I installed AO3 I already have JPLAY installed, and on the AO3 setup in one of the steps it asks to delete JPLAY, I answered NO. I should have uninstalled JPLAY, and installed it again after AO3 setup? There is some order on Software(JPLAY + AO3 + Fidelizer + MinorityClean) installation that I should follow? I see on a post someone talking about the "Thesycon driver". I should use "Thesycon driver" or stick with the manufacturer drivers for my Roksan K3 DAC?
  4. My goal is to stream TIDAL to my NUC8i5BEH with JPLAY Fetmo + AO3 + Fidelizer + MinorityClean. I was looking to the best way to control Tidal and stream music to JPLAY, so far I've tested: - Audirvana in Macbook streaming to JPLAY - Best sound quality, but I don't want to use it as it required that my MAC is always on; - BubbleUpnp(Android) - Pretty good sound quality, slight worst than the above configuration but still great; The problem is when the phone is locked, the next song on the queue does not play; Also doesn't support MQA, but this isn't a big deal; - Audirvana installed on the same machine of JPLAY - Worst than BubbleUpnp but better than mconnect; Audirvana Remote iOS app sometimes don't connect to Audirvana; - mconnect(iOS) - The worst, as it is device dependent: iPhoneX > iPad Mini Retina > iPhone SE; The iPhoneX that I use to test isn't mine so I can benefit of the superior sound quality of it; There are better ways to stream TIDAL to JPLAY? It is better to install BubbleUpnp on my NUC, activate OpenHome and control Tidal with Linn/Lumin app? Or I will get bad sound quality and problems connecting to it? Related to my problem with BubbleUpnp Android's app, there are some setting that I'm missing? How do you have your BubbleUpnp app and Android phone configured? I'm doing more tests and now I'm having the following problems, I don't detect them before installed AO3: mconnect- Music stops after 2/3minutes; Audirvana in Macbook streaming to JPLAY - Parts of music gets mixed and music stops after 2/3minutes; What I'm doing wrong?
  5. Yes, I found out that the drivers that I was using are not the correct ones. MQA problem seems also to be resolved, in the Roksan Dac settings I changed Output format from 2channels 16bits to 2channels 24bits and that did the trick. Thank you Marcin for the fast support. I will do more tests, and see if everything is working properly if so I will purchase an JPLAY license. Best Regards, Mário São João
  6. Related to crashes in JPLAY, I think I found the problem. I was using the wrong DAC drivers, I downloaded them from Roksan Black Integrated Amplifier page because there is no Roksan K3 DAC page(old model). Although they work, apparently they don't work properly. I contact Roksan to find out if these are the proper drivers and they send me the link to the K3 ones. I installed them and until now no crashes from JPLAY. But Audirvana/BubbleUpnp MQA files still don't play and I'm pretty sure that in one of my previous installations I was able to stream MQA files throw Audirvana using JPLAY KS.
  7. You can see my configuration in the attached file. I also have tested with other "DAC Link" values with same results. I already tried with Bubble UPnP app, but for me Audirvana sounds better. I also have an Beresford Caiman Seg Dac that I've tried but it crashes always, I can't even make it work.
  8. I recently bought a NUC8i5BEH, with 16gb Optane and 1x16gb 2400mhz in order to test various Linux audio distributions and stick with one. In the process I read some posts/reviews saying JPLAY is superior, so I give it a try. I have to agree with them, to me JPLAY is another league, much more musical, less harsh, music has flow, it's fantastic. I'm planning to buy an JPLAY license but first I have to figure out two problems that I have. What I've test: I have installed it in several windows versions(10, 2019 server and 10 enterprise LTSC). I have installed Roksan drivers in order to be able to use Kernel Streaming. I have used Audirvana and Mconnect(iOS) to stream Tidal. I have tested with/without MinorityClean and Fidelizer free. Problems: After I hear 4/5 musics it crashs(I'm testing, so usually I hear 30 seconds of one them switch to another) (see attached image). Sometimes MQA files doesn't play. Using Roksan K3 Dac directly works perfectly but JPLAY sounds much better. Note that I'm using and 16gb Optane as disk so I have only 1gb(2gb in 2019 server) of free space in disk, but that doesn't seems to be the problem. Can someone help me?
  9. Do you have some tips on the best BIOS's setting in a NUC to run Euphony. Or there are any post with compiled information about it? Thank you in advance.
  10. I don't understand what do you mean in step 1). Euphony detects my Optane drive, at least it appears in "Internal Storage" section, I can locate is an Option to copy/transfer my installation to Optane. I'm using a 32gb USB to boot Euphony, maybe the problem could be that my USB stick has more GBs than my Optane, and Euphony hides the option to copy/transfer because it can't copy the full structure?! Thank you @davide256
  11. Hi, I purchase a NUC8i5BEH, 1x16GB DDR4 2400mhz memory and and Optane 16GB. The goal is to use Euphony Player to stream Tidal to my Roksan K3 Dac. Right now I'm on Euphony Trial and I have some doubts: - I can't install Euphony in my Optane stick, is this because I'm on Euphony Trial? I have to purchase full version to install it in Optane? Or the problem is another? Note that on BIOS update isn't recognize as a Bootable drive, I don't know if it is normal, because it's the first time that I'm using an Optane stick. - Euphony only recognizes 8GB of memory, but when I go to BIOS it says 16GB. I only have 1 stick of 16GB, it is some kind of bug in Euphony? Somebody with the same problem? - I'm using my Mac to access Euphony through Chrome browser and "Euphony web app" is draining my battery like crazy. With a tab with "Euphony web app" open the "Activity Monitor" show Google Chrome process consuming lots of CPU as you can see in the attached picture. Somebody with the same problem? I'm in the last build of Euphony with every update applied. Thank you in advance.
  12. The room UpMpd that you have in Linn is not related with BubbleUpnp being enabled in GentooPlayer? I only have these two options when I also have BubbleUpnp enabled. And the problem of Linn always showing 44hz 320kbps only happens in Main Room. But related to this problem, it seems a bug of Linn app, because when I change the values of tidalquality between low and lossless in /etc/upmpdcli.conf, the app always shows 44hz 320kbps, but lossless option gives way better sound quality. Related to cpu temperature I will try another profiles and see what happens. The goal is to buy a NUC to use with some Linux audio distribution. Right now I'm really enjoying GentooPlayer, and for use with Tidal (without Roon), it works wonderfully because I can use Linn app(which as a good UI/UX) without the need of BubbleUpnp(that sounds much worse to my ears). Thank you very much @antonellocaroli
  13. I already try that but it gives me the same results, "44hz 320kbps" music: Also I already fill tidaluser, tidalpass and tidalautostart and same errors as above appears. Are you using only MPD and UpMPDcli? In my setup I can only see "Main Room", no "UpMPD" option here. My Linn app: I have another problem, my computer Macbook Pro 15inch mid 2015, is always at full speed and the fan always spinning even without playing any song. Is this normal? Can you help me?
  14. Hi, I’m testing gentooplayer to stream Tidal. To do so I enable only MPD and upMPDcli and use Linn app to login/navigate/play Tidal. The user interface for Tidal is good and the sound quality also...in my opinion superior to Roon server and BubbleUPnp OpenHome on the same machine. I have a doubt, Linn app shows for all songs “44hz 320kbps”. It is streaming in lossless quality or only mp3? Also there is some documentation that explain differences between kernels, profiles and RamSystems? Thank you in advance.
  15. The goal is to listen only to Tidal(I really hope that Euphony improves the Stylus Player interface), so your recommendation makes sense. I plan to purchase a Keces P3/8 in a near future. I already have used one P3 and it sound really good, with the advantage that can power 2 devices at same time. You don't have any recommendations for the RAM?
