  1. @davide256 following your post from May, specifically in regards to SSDs under Linux sounding ‘bright’... have you explored any other remedies/solutions/ideas outside of SDXC? For example, does a JCAT or Patchenko SATA cable help tame brightness? Eager to hear any of your findings. Am also curious more generally if Linux+SSD is actually bright in reality or if everything else is actually/historically just ‘dull’ in comparison.
  2. Want to buy: DCS Network Bridge in black. $2500 + shipping. Thanks
  3. done. https://hypertrap.com/arch/hist/bvei2rfdmk/edm1n7n0d4 anyone who wants to piggy back onto the automatic email alerts can just click Follow
  4. the main AO product page has been updated for Windows Server 2019! https://hypertrap.com/arch/hist/jkeklw32q9/skioub39lz#dm=wbw https://www.highend-audiopc.com/audiophile-optimizer
  5. Hi. Can anyone recommend a USB Wifi adapter that works well with Windows Server 2019? thank you (can be either USB 2.0 or 3.0)
  6. @McNulty @plissken notice the part in the AudioBacon assessment where the reviewer literally pulls the plug and listens....
  7. curious, I have never tried Spotify before on an AO system. I was able to install it, but it won't actually start. Is there a trick to get Spotify to work? 2019 Core.
  8. curious: is Spotify Connect on the Micro/UltraRendu 110% stable and reliable, such that a casual Spotify user in the house can use it without fear of weird lockups, freezes, fails, or other 'beta' issues?
  9. does AO B32 support USB based DACs which only use Windows Native USB driver?
  10. @Norton do you have any impressions or comparisons you could share (or link to where you’ve already shared) The idea of USB sticks as a compromise between CDs and computers is quite interesting.
  11. hi. So I've read post #1 and of course #2751 by @Dick Darlington But what are the Instructions/ActualSteps to follow for Sony S590? Are they the same as Oppo, same as Pioneer, or is there another set of Instructions/ActualSteps tailored for the Sony S590?
  12. Filter observation: I was using 1B with 2.2 , but I am using XX with 3 beta.
  13. Hi all. It's January 2019 and I'm trying to figure out what the general consensus is for storing and accessing WAV files to optimize playback sound quality via Foobar on an AO Win2016core server. (a) via USB 3.0 - external hard disk (assume HD powered by LPS) (b) via USB 3.0 - external SSD (assume SSD powered by LPS) (c) via RJ45 - a different server on the LAN mapped SMB (d) via WiFi - a different server on the LAN mapped SMB (e) via SATA - internal SSD (f) via SATA - internal hard disk (g) _________ Thanks for any guidance --jay
  14. @PewterTA Hi. I don't really know what specific advice to give you, but I can confirm Foobar 2000 v1.4 runs just fine on WinServer 2016 Core Standard edition-- of course it requires AO to work. And I'm running Dante Virtual Soundcard to output ASIO over Ethernet to a Focusrite D16AES. I seem to vaguely remember installing Windows Media Feature/Foundation prior to installing my soundcard drivers and prior to installing AO. Outside of that, does the Mutec driver support ASIO? You could try the Foobar ASIO plugin and see if it 'sees' the Mutec via ASIO.
  15. Hi. In the 4th paragraph of the post it says " You'll switch to Qobuz (trust me) " What are the top 3 bullet points why a US Tidal user would be compelled to switch to Qobuz?
