  1. Interested to see how this plays out. I have used Audirvana in the past, when I used Macs, and liked it well enough. I got on Roon at the beginning, and have early lifetime licenses (one for the house, and one for the office). I have struggled with players for the other 3-4 locations I work at, usually on laptops via USB DAC/Amps and headphones. I don't listen enough to get that many Roon licenses, and don't want to keep de-activating, and activating those licenses either. I have ended up just having Qobuz on most of them. I did end up getting A+ on my laptop at the bea
  2. I think the one to me was pruned before I got up this morning. I got the email notice, but the actual mail is not present here. Good work by Chris and any forum moderators that help him.
  3. I like the ability to use Roon on iPad in vertical mode. I like the vertical scrolling. Home page has gotten too busy. It would be great if one could enable/disable/reposition the various sections. I too depend on the little icons on the album cover with resolution, and Qobuz vs library source. I suspect it’s time to learn how to use the Focus function to work more for me. As for some of the other issues people have discussed here, perhaps they could have been testing, and working on those issues for the past week, instead of the teaser releases over the past
  4. I had the HDPlex 200, which worked well for a few years. I started having issues, and discovered that the adjustable output (to a ultraRendu at that point) had stopped working correctly. The voltage out was 24v or so, and not affected by rotating the pot. It was powering the NUC at 19v appropriately. I recently did a new build with HDPlex H1 V3, and have the HDPlex300 on order for it, and the etherRegen.
  5. Ok, done for the weekend. I installed Euphony, but it would not stay connected long. Static IP address and all tried. I went with Win10pro/AO, as I could figure things out. There were other challenges as a headless server... 1) It was easy to configure the BIOS to start the computer when the power comes on. (frequent short black outs here) 2) Had to try a few things to get the PC to load up without logging in 3) I really struggled with auto-starting Roon - I tried RoonServer, which would auto-oad easy, but I could not find it with the remo
  6. Thanks for responding all. Struggling with Euphony install. Not paid for anything yet.
  7. Finished the physical build today of my Christmas present (HDPlex H3V3 with 9th gen i5, and M.2 drive for OS, and a second for music files) by dinner today. I was playing with the BIOS before I left off today. My system has a streamer built into the DAC, so my server will not use USB out to DAC, files to copper Ethernet. I use Roon to resample all to DSD128, as that sounds best out of the DAC. I can build a PC, configure my ubiquiti router, and access points. Question I’m asking tonight: which OS to use? I kinda like RoonCore, so having that option is importan
  8. USA here. All was in stock when I ordered mid November. H3 V3 with silver front. I got the 200w internal PSU. I will upgrade to linear PSU someday. Got the physical build up to looking at BIOS screen done by dinner. OS tomorrow. Still not decided what to load.
  9. Mine is under the Christmas tree, to open this morning! Silver front. Hope you find one, and have fun with your build.
  10. I am going to build a H1V3 cased mini ITX PC this Christmas break as well, to replace my aging NUC. I will put M.2 drives x 2, one for Windows, and a separate one for music files. I will be using the 200watt internal PSU with the switching block in the machine, with the expectation of upgrading to external linear PSU at another time. As my Streamer/DAC takes the files via ethernet, I hope to not use USB for anything but back up.
  11. The H1 V3 case will handle slim ITX, Mini ITX, and ITX boards. They sell a converter which allows the use of a NUC board. (Its a different size/shape copper heat sink, and assorted bits. The standard heat sink and bits fit the regular Intel and Ryzen chips. The H1 case (combining right and left heat sinks) will dissipate a 65 TDW processor.
  12. There is a NUC - Austin Beach - which is available with 2 Ethernet ports. Not sure how one would configure those with ROCK. I have an M12, and prefer the etherRegen to feed it. I use a NUC6 with ROCK, but I am building a fanless PC for my Christmas present. With not enough understanding of the dual Ethernet systems, I decided to just keep the etherRegen, for which I use an iFi wallwart.
  13. Not to get into the weeds with hardware. I am building a new fanless i5 music server in a small HD Plex case. I use Roon, and a Bricasti M12 ethernet streamer. It has been awhile since I did a Windows server setup with Windows10pro. I particularly got interested in this build now that an ITX board can hold 2 different M.2 cards. I will have an OS card, and a music library card. I have an older HD Plex Linear Supply, but will be going with the internal PSU for now. I am considering some combination of Project Lasso, Fidelizer, and Audiophile Optimizer. I have used Project Lasso and
  14. Has anyone tried these? I’m thinking a fanless i5 NUC with 128g OS drive, with 2gig music drive, both m.2, all in a small box, would be a nice server unit.
  15. In my reading on the Apple site, the Mac Mini will still have a fan. Much of the non-Apple software will need to be re-written/compiled for the M1.
