  1. Thanks for the input! This is encouraging. I've continued to research this and I'm looking at getting the ADA8P card to enable measuring and premium DA conversion, and as cheaper option than DA8P + AKD8D. But can't buy Hapi here and was planning to do so in a next trip, but alas, COVID came along and I'm grounded. Hopefully can still get it in 2020!! How do you take Acourate measurements? Thru Hapi with another card, or an external card? My current server will likely not have enough power to do DSD convolving. Will see. But the Hapi will stay with me for a l
  2. thank you. Got to love it when things are easier than expected. Doesn't happen often in audio!
  3. I don't seem to able to explain myself: I cannot get anything that's not UTP around here. I'm not concerned with CAT 6 emissions into analogue gear. I'm concerned with fluorescent tubes and LED strips running along the cable and close to it injecting noise into the cable or otherwise harming the signal or gigabit capability. Hence the alternatives to add external shielding to the cable such as copper tubing or aluminum foil tape wrapped around the cable. If nonsense because noise/RFI/EMI doesn't get into the CAT6 UTP, then that's ok. It's different from what I read online, but maybe I misunder
  4. Thanks guys. Some peculiarities of what I'm asking: I'm not using shielded connectors nor cable. Just plain plastic RJ45 and UTP CAT6 cable. The question is if I should build a shield around the cable for the 40 feet that run along the fluorescent tubes and LED strips (and 4" apart). What do you think?
  5. Many network knowledgeable folks gather around here, so hoping you can point me in the right direction. I'm setting up a home gigabit network using UTP cat 6 cable. The cat 6 run from router to switch is 17 meters long and 12 of those meters run along and 10cm away from either flourescent tubes or LED strips. The runs from switch to clients are shorter and away from tubes/LEDs so these are of no concern (I think). Unfortunately, around here I'm not finding STP or FTP cat 6 unless I buy 1000 feet, which I'm not going to do. So I'm wondering if I should add any shielding to those 12
  6. Thanks for the input. My motherboard is Intel S1200KPR with Xeon E3 1265 lv2, 6 years old. I basically copied AudioPhil's machine from back then. I believe he still uses it and his manual recommends not turning on hyper-threading. I run a linear PSU, and have an etherRegen on the way. Suggests I should lower voltage then? AudioPhil, are you running with lower voltage and /or speed?
  7. Hello. This thread would generally be posted in the servers forum, but I'm posting here as hopefully it's a more targeted audience: I remember extensive discussions some years ago in the JPlay forum, and I was wondering if there would be benefits to be had if applied to my Roon Bridge PC running WS2019 with AO 3.00 with Audiophileshell (AudioPC in the signature below). People in JPlay used to report improvements when lowering the CPU and RAM speed, and the voltage, in the JPlay AudioPC. Not sure if this is outdated now or applicable for my case? Thank you! Horacio
  8. Glad you figured it out. It took me a while too. BTW, what is HAF? I use Acourate.
  9. Interesting. I wasn't aware of that suggestion. A while back I had some audiophile slo-blow fuse running in my tube amp without issues. Eventually upgraded the KT88 tubes, which blew the fuse. I put back the stock fuse and worked well. Replaced the audiophile fuse and it blew again. That was enough to let go. Using a larger value fuse would have been an option, although also allowing for less protection to the circuit downstream. It's a non-issue while there is no failure, of course.
  10. Thanks for the follow up. I went on to explore the update log for AO 3.00 and realized WS2012R2 was rather outdated, and went ahead and installed WS2019. So won't be solving for the above anymore. I am likely to show up in another thread asking for other help, though ☺️ Hope you are safe and doing well.
  11. FWIW, I tried running AO on GUI mode and RoonBridge/Roon works perfectly. It's something to do with minimal server mode. What's most puzzling is it was working on minimal-server before I did the Windows reinstall, so there has to be something in the setup. Oh well.
  12. Seems AudioPhil isn't available. Might someone else have thoughts on why this might not be working? Thank you!
  13. Thanks for chiming in. I don't yet have the Ravenna card, but I'm considering the Merging Hapi for multichannel and been looking for eR+Hapi users, and I have only found one who, despite doing on 2 channel, said the 100Mbps port didn't work. From your comment I'm guessing that even a Dante card doing 8 channels at 192kHz would have trouble. let alone if doing DSD, which is something I consider down the road with Hapi. cheers!
  14. How do I check that? I'm assuming tI should urn into minimal server mode and check if Windows Audio Service is working, right? Because it does work while in GUI since Roon Bridge plays music. Regards, Horacio
