  1. Well either way, I won't be shipping the unit back to holland and I would not want a DIY install of the clocks to I guess I'll have to live without them. Not sure what the pricing is either.
  2. If you have the older streamer (I believe that is what I traded in on the 2.16) you will be in for a shock moving to the 2.16. It is a lot better.
  3. Speaking of nice systems. This is my 5.2 setup. All vivid speakers. Nothing I owned before (including more expensive stuff) comes close to it. Streamer took things up a notch or two. Electronics are all PS audio. P20 power is sitting behind the rack. 3x Directstream for MCH duties.
  4. Sorry I missed this for a day. If I understand the architecture over I2S correctly, upgrading clocks at the source does not benefit sound because the clocking is not used. I could be wrong. You could ask Ted @ PS audio to validate this. No doubt folks on the forum can weigh in as well.
  5. Pink Faun just installed windows on it for me. It is not the standard configuration.
  6. I just took possession of my new top of the line Pink Faun 2.16 server, and it is an absolute revelation. I had been using their earlier model for a few years and while it worked fine, I was never in love with it - it did not blow the earlier multi media servers I had been using out of the water. To be honest, I had not experienced step change improvements between any of the servers I have been using for a decade. Then I traded it in for the 2.16 and this is an entirely different animal. Nothing in the CAPS evolution can hold a candle to it. Separation between instruments, air around the instr
  7. I have been using Jriver for years, never had a problem. Today, the program started crashing (non response - windows shutdown). Audio files are working OK. I am running v22 and Windows 10, using motherboard HDMI for video output. Any suggestion what could be the problem? It may be the computer hardware. Jriver v20 now has the same problem. I posted on Jriver forum as well.
  8. I have two Oppo's 103s on my network, and they always both worked fine with Jriver / Jremote. Mysteriously, one of the two stopped showing up as a redendering device in Jriver / Jremote. I tried rebooting server, router etc. No joy. On the Oppo that does not show up in Jriver, the server running JRiver / DLNA does show up as a music library, so I can play music, but I need to use my Oppo navigation on the TV screen, and can no longer control my library using Jremote. I assume it is a Jriver issue, not an Oppo issue. Any suggestions how I can troubleshoot / fix this?
  9. Thanks. That looks promising. I'll makes sure memory playback has been disabled.
  10. Just did. Will check if buffer size increase will solve the problem. I was using 100ms.
  11. I am using a stack of 3 x 2 channel DAC. My soundcard outputs 3 x I2S.
  12. Are you converting DSD (SACD rips) on the fly like me? I don't have a problem playing native MCH Flacs (96/24). What buffer setting are you using?
  13. every 5 minutes or so I get a ever so brief skip playing multi channel DSD converted to PCM in Jriver. I am also using Dirac, so plenty processing going on, but should be easy workload for my CPU. I don't have the problem playing Blu Ray rips, or any other MCH or 2 channel content. Any suggestions what could be the problem? My be a Jriver setting I could change (buffer?). I'm running Jriver 20. Could upgrading to 21 potentially solve the problem?

    Need Jriver help

    Ted, you're the man. It worked.
  15. I successfully merged and migrated my libraries - thanks to the Jriver experts in the house. I have another question. I have one customized library view, that I am seeing on Jremote, I have added it using Jriver setting: Options -> Media Network -> Advanced -> Customize view for Gizmo and WebGizmo -> Add -> Library ITem From Standard View I just created a second customized library view and added it to the customized WebGizmo view (and deleted one other item), but the new view is not showing in Jriver, and the deleted view still shows. Any suggestions what may be
  16. Thanks. Before porting I am going to be tagging all my WAV files which will make this a lot easier. Does the tag also pic up the cover art?
  17. Question for the Jriver experts in the house. I currently have two servers each with their own libraries and file locations. I am merging everything onto a single server, copying files into a new location (drive and directory name). Is there any way I can merge the libraries? If not, I have to take the largest one, import files from the other one and retag the smallest library files - lot of work. How can I change the drive and directory name in the new library. I am thinking of backing up the library then importing it on the new server. However, this library will point to the wrong l
  18. Guys, thanks for help. Problem solved. I had a corrupted DSD file (not sure how this happended). Works fine now. COnverting to 176 PCM.
  19. Isn't this something that would allow DSD playback in foobar? I need DSD to PCM conversion, either on the fly or in batch.
  20. I converted DSD to 192/32 PCM and the converted PCM file still does not work. I get 1 sec sound, then a pop and soun disappears. DAC display still shows data coming in. Any suggestiogn what could be the problem? I suspect the pink faun sound card is the problem, but any suggestions of what I could change in Jriver setting to try to get it fixed are welcome..... Not happy.
  21. I am trying to get my new server to work with DSD and am running into problems. My Pink Faun server with I2S bridge appears to have problems with DSD converted on the fly to 192/64. The bridge uses a standard WASAPI driver. It produces music for a second, then pops and goes dead. The DAC still shows music playing and a signal, but no music. I suspect the reason is the bridge and driver supports just up 192/32, so the 64 bits may be causing a problem. I am getting a " "Not using enough bits to output input directly" message in the audio path in Jriver. Does anyone know if there is a
  22. What I found most fascinating about applying DRC is that none of the other factors determing sound quality actually change. For example, I can jack up my low frequencies by a few dB to get more bass response in DRC. However, even if I do that, inserting hardware with better bass reproduction qualities will have just as much positive impact as without the DRC. I bet the better bass response like I am getting from the new firmware does not even show up in the measured frequency spectrum Dirac uses to calculate filters.
  23. Agree. High frequencies are just fine. Cymbals sounds better than ever. Only "cricism" could be more in your face, forward sound. More of a personal preference though.
  24. I joined the club a long time ago with MSB for mains, 2 x NAD M51 for surround/center. Now 3 x Directstream is delivering the goods and with this firmware, I can honestly say I believe the DS beats the MSB Signature (big claim this....). Next projext will be to give the pink faun MCH I2S card a try to improve over Lynx - the journey continues.
  25. Ted, I posted the following on the PS audio site. This upgrade is nothting short of amazing on PCM as well. I am using a stack of 3x Direcstream for MCH (lynx card), and a separate 2 channel USB server. Ted also addressed some potential clock sync issues in a MCH application in the firmware release (he uses multiple DS for MCH audio himself). "Let me start off by saying I'm a bit of a tweak sceptic. Either that, or I just don't have the patience to look for subtle differences that need to grow on you. Given this and the fact that the 1.21 firmware upgrade did not do much for me, I install
