  1. Yes, I would try that. It is odd that you could access it the first time, but not when it was started again after changing some non-network settings. There is an HDMI port on the Allo - you could try connecting a monitor to that to get some clues as to what is going wrong on startup perhaps.
  2. You could try using an app like Fing on android or Net Analzer on iOS to find what IP address the Allo is using and type that in the http: URL.
  3. You can use any UPnP app to stream 192k files to LS50Ws - I use BubbleUPnP.
  4. Interesting comment about the Qutest earthing. My 2Qute has a grounding post and the MCRU linear power supply that I use with it, comes with a DC lead that has an earthing fly lead, and so I connect that to the grounding post. I assume the Qutest doesn’t have an grounding post.
  5. I haven’t got a lot to go on to account for your problem. You will need to paste the command you’re using and the output. Is the current time set correctly on both local and remote machines?
  6. The whole point of rsync is that it will only copy files which have changed, and it will do that by default. This command will copy a local directory to another machine, only copying files which have changed: $ rsync -va <from dir> <remote user>@<remote address>:<to dir>
  7. I use BubbleUPnP on Android to stream from a hard disk attached to my router which runs MiniDLNA. I assume that the KEF app uses the same mechanism and should sound the same. I need to experiment with different ways of driving the LS50s, but I’m currently not a Roon subscriber.
  8. Thanks for that. It sounds like I should try a good quality streamer from my other systems to hear for myself.
  9. I only use my LS50s and subwoofers with a wireless connection as it is really a ‘lifestyle’ system although on a large scale and I don’t want to have computers, USB cleaner uppers etc adding clutter. On the other hand having said that, I’m interested in what sort of scale the delta is between a high end USB input like you have, and a wireless music connection via UPnP.
  10. I don’t think you can choose cables by visiting web sites, you need to listen to them - have you got that far? I don’t know what of equipment you’ve got, but cables are system dependent, and you can only tell what suits by trying them out.
  11. Sorry, I think it is clearer to express conductivity relative to copper. It is not obfuscation. If you think otherwise it is merely a difference of opinion, not some kind of plot to deceive. You appear to be on some kind of religious mission to promote Blue Jeans cables, as there is no actual connection between the title of this thread mentioning Blue Jeans Cables and Wireworld’s choice about how best to clearly explain the difference in conductivity between various different metals.
  12. I use Duelund DCA16GA for speaker cable, and DCA20GA for interconnects. I use low power tube amps, but if you’ve got higher power amps and less efficient speakers there is a DCA12GA variant. I’ve even replaced the internal wiring on a couple of pairs of my speakers with Duelund.
  13. You don’t even need to use silver. I use Duelund tinned copper cable for its vintage tone, and I assume a long lifetime. If you are choosing cables by looking at what conductivity the metal they are made of has, as opposed what they sound like, then you’re probably doing it wrong.
  14. I’ve had a pair of the Tandy LX5s with the Linaeum tweeter for nearly 30 years. A few years ago I upgraded the crossover which consists of two components, an inductor and a capacitor. I replaced the ferrite core inductor with an air cored one, and the cap with a better SCR polypropylene one. The sound certainly improved a great deal. Just recently I upgraded the speakers again. I replaced the internal wiring with Duelund DCA16GA, instead of the Chord Carnival I’d used before. I replaced the 6.2 mF SCR cap with a ClarityCap SA and an 0.1 mF Audyn True Copper as a bypass cap. The new caps are still breaking in, but there has been a large jump in the sound quality. I had thought the Linaeum tweeter was very clear and transparent, certainly after the first upgrade, but maybe it was lacking in a bit of tonal richness. But the new caps and Duelund cable have given them a lovely tone and timbre to go with the transparency. I don’t know anything about the crossover in the Linaeum speakers, but it is quite possible that the crossover components might be the limiting factor, giving the soft sound you describe rather than the tweeter itself.
  15. No, it isn't about your pain feeling subjectively better in the case of the medical 'placebo effect', it is about your health being measurably better. There is no equivalent to that with the 'objectivist' use of 'placebo effect'.
