  1. I frequently use Qobuz to find new music and then purchase the disc in order to get better sound quality. I have found the difference to be subtle - at the high end, tighter bottom and something a little more spacious in the sound stage. All subtle, but noticeable enough (on some recordings more than others) that I pay the extra money. (I also prefer the subtle sound improvement of foreign disc pressings - British, German and Japanese...)
  2. So, I am trying to add another device (UPnP) on to the network. Audirvana recognizes it and plays to it. Great. But each of the two devices (Raspberry pi based streamers) need different setting because they work with different dacs. Unfortunately, when I set the device parameters for one (Maximum PCM Rate, Sox and Upsampling target frequencies), they change for both devices. Is there a way to have different setting for each device? Thanks in advance.
  3. Maybe a silly question that has already been answered: If someone publishes a playlist for either Tidal or Qobuz, how do you add that to Audirvana to play in Tidal or Qobuz?
  4. On both. The Shanti is designed to work with the other Allo products as it has a clean and dirty side connection. Tried switching back to batteries on the clean side, but sounded much, much worse. Did not try using my inexpensive linear power supply on the dirty side instead of the Shanti because it did not seem to matter. Shanti is a great value!
  5. I have been pleasantly and joyously surprised by the sound improvement with the Shanti power supply. I was using batteries for the clean side and an inexpensive linear power supply for the dirty side and the Shanti make a substantial improvement in sound.

  7. Hi Simon, this is a little off your topic, but do you have a digiOne (Signature) HAT connected to your USB Bridge/Raspberry Pi device? Or how are you connecting your dac to the USB Bridge? Thanks, Rick
  8. Just for the record, there are two cases available for the USB Bridge Signature - one without room for a HAT and one with room for a USB Bridge Signature with a DigiOne Signature card. I speculate that there has not been a metal case for the DigiOne Signature Player is that there may be an upgrade in Allo's future which uses the updated Raspberry Pi 4. I view my dear Allo as a hobbiest company whose products are in continual upgrade mode. My two cents...
  9. Still running Mohave on a tricked out 2012 Mac Mini. Is there any sonic or feature reason to upgrade to Catalina?
  10. Jae Sinnett is an NPR DJ out of Hampton Virginia who plays some groovy drums. Love this swinging bop disc (The Sinnett Hearings) although it is obscure and not available on quality streaming services. Best I could find is this: https://www.iheart.com/artist/jae-sinnett-70394/albums/the-sinnett-hearings-1304201/?autoplay=true
  11. For those using the DigiOne Signature with the new USB Bridge Signature - Is there a sonic advantage to using the DigiOne Signature Player if one is not using the USB feature?
  12. Decided to check on your dedication to timing by finding out more about your speakers. Wow. https://www.stereophile.com/content/fujitsu-ten-eclipse-td712z-loudspeaker https://www.eclipse-td.com/uk/products/td712zmk2/index.html Party on, Garth.
  13. Hope this is not an obviously answered question, but... On several sites, folks give fun playlists in Spotify. Is there a way to listen to them using Audirvana?
