  1. Hi David, I am not looking for advice about my system, I'm curious if others have compared listening to music via Roon vs. say, JRiver on their systems. After extended listening I have decided there does not appear to be a large difference on mine.
  2. People on a forum I visit are comparing the sound of their systems when using Roon 1.7 and a system driven by JRiver. Some believe the JRiver setup sounds noticeably better. Seeing as how Euphony makes it so easy to switch from a Roon Stylus mode to a Squeezebox setup that can easily be used with JRiver, I am now listening to that setup. I love what I hear with the Roon setup but this is sounding a bit better. I am curious if anyone has any thoughts on this.
  3. Hi, no sir, I have not done any upsampling with the Euphony setup as my DAC does all that.
  4. In my setup I bought a server from Power Holdings that was equipped with a 4TB Internal SSD (Samsung) that Euphony installed to and also stored my music library. As you mentioned, one device with no need to talk to any other devices other than the DAC. This device sounds better than my finely tuned windows machine running Win 10 Pro. The same machine running the Euphony OS on a thumb drive sounded better still. The new dedicated server sounds best of all.
  5. I agree 100%. I would ask Bob to kindly allow it.
  6. An hour ago I set my Euphony PTS server to run in Roon Core + StylusEP mode. This is my first experience with Roon. I added Tidal a few days ago, and Qobuz a few weeks ago. At first I had Roon stream to the Bridge II card in my PS Audio Directstream DAC, just to verify the MQA was properly functioning. It was my first experience with MQA. I am not political about MQA yet. Now I am listening via the USB out to my Matrix and then to I2S. It sounds pretty much the same as it did pre-Roon. From what I have been reading I was afraid Roon would take the sound down a notch. This does not seem to be the case. it all sounds better than my highly refined audio computer running that Windows stuff. It sounds pretty darned BOLD at the moment. I enjoyed the commentary of the last 24 hours or so here. Some of you have experience with equipment I can only read about. Thanks for sharing!!!
  7. That's the thing. I have a PS Audio Directstream DAC. It can do the MQA thing but only through the Ethernet Bridge. I am not sure how to send something from the Euphony server to the Ethernet Bridge card on the DAC. It's looking like Roon is the answer.
  8. So now, just to make it interesting I have a new Tidal account. Does Euphony OS have any MQA ability?
  9. Wait for Euphony to get Qobuz to allow the data to flow. I created a trouble ticket the moment I noticed the issue. They told me they were aware of the problem and had contacted Qobuz. Apparently something was worked out. No change on my end, no new software or upgrades. They asked me to "try it now" I did, and it worked. I blame you Bob.
  10. I am back in business with Qobuz and Euphony! Thanks to Željko Vranić and the Euphony Team! All in all a weird first week with my new Euphony server and Qobuz subscription.
  11. I am right there with you. I tried to get the Qobuz app to work on my pc but it would be easier to make new recordings of everything I listen to than to accomplish that. What a nightmare. The day the service went out I had just paid for a year sub. Bah. I miss it.
  12. Hi Bob, I did this two days ago, as well as notifying Qobuz. Euphony responded within an hour, Qobuz no response. As far as the JRiver part goes, the Quboz application offered it as a connection. It just couldn't let go of wanting to connect to the computer monitor speakers. The Quboz app seems to think JRiver is an option.
  13. I am very unimpressed with Qobuz at the moment. Unimpressed, I am quite angry. I have my Euphony server in Squeezelite mode and I am playing music to it via JRiver 25. Like a fool I downloaded the Windows app to the computer I have JRiver on. When I run the Qobuz app it wants to use the speakers in the monitor attached to the computer for output. When I try to select JRiver it loads something into the playlist on JRiver. Meanwhile the Qobuz app goes into not responding mode, and when it comes out it says it couldn’t use JRiver but here, we can play out of your half inch monitor speakers. Bah. And of course I kept fiddling with it thinking it could be solved. Qobuz is a French company, isn’t it? (not that there is anything wrong with that) at at least I can sleep well knowing they have my money.
  14. I have heard that Tidal is affected as well for Euphony users which made me think......
  15. I am sad streaming is broken. I signed up and paid for a one year subscription to Qobuz and minutes later Euphony loses it's ability to stream it. Bah.
