  1. I would still give it a shot. Flow control is a simple command to issue once you can get into the switch ;-) I think the less Rube Goldberg a setup is the more reliable it's going to be.
  2. As long as you have USB C on your computer (Windows?) you should be good. COM port should be 9600 Baud, 8 Bits, 1 Stop Bit, No Parity (9600 8/n/1). That port will show up in device manager when you plug the cable in.
  3. What is the exact model # of your switch. Post a link to the cable you ordered. You may/may not need a USB to DB9 adapter.
  4. There is a reset button on the left hand side. http://notthenetwork.me/blog/2013/05/28/reset-a-cisco-2960-switch-to-factory-default-settings/ Are you using a console cable?
  5. Can you swap channels in your playback software and see if the crackling follows?
  6. If there was a substantive rebuttal coming it would have come by now. So far my point is the last one standing and it's been crickets otherwise.
  7. Ok what is it then? Have you heard this specific server?
  8. I'm operating from the POV that servers are servers and not end point's with direct connection to a DAC. I'll both circle back and double down on Miska's NAA approach. You do all the heavy computational stuff on a server and then send out PCM, DoP, DSD to an endpoint supporting whatever protocol it is. Be it DNLA or NAA or RAAT or RTP or.... The list goes on. Why would you have the device plugged in directly to your DAC doing all the computational work? Off load that somewhere else and just spit out the end result to a nice low power endpoint. @Miska , @jabbr am I missing something
  9. I also can't say that Tidal's, Qobuz, Naxos, Amazons servers are equally as good either. But when a streaming service starts offering lossless Redbook or better there's much fanfare at AS and other sites.
  10. Again, I welcome a realtime, face to face Google Duo on this topic for posting to YouTube.
  11. We don't have to even go out of this very thread. When PeterSt says: "You appear to have no clue. The DSP stuff doesn't happen there." And we know this is 100% in error on his part. I do not purchase or obtain services from people that have fundamentally flawed understanding about how all this works. You buy what ever you want to buy from Peter.
  12. Let's not get off point here. I specifically laid out that you just need a low power end point and you can do all the heavy lifting at a server elsewhere. PeterSt, in an ill-advised attempt to discredit what I was saying, said I don't understand how DSP etc works that that it all happens at the end point. Now I don't know about anyone else but... I have a garage setup, I have a desk setup, my wife has a setup in her office, and the dedicated room next door has a setup. I'm I going to put in four Xeon based computers? Or put in some low power draw DNLA or NAA end points
  13. Stupidity is ignorance left willfully uncorrected Alex. PeterSt maintained (he should now be disabused of that notion) that all the DSP etc happened at the end point. WHY would you take a 32 core CPU and underclock it to 500MHz? You might as well get a Lambo, put in a 4 cylinder Toyota Corolla engine. You are defeating the entire purpose. I'll tell you what, You, Chris, PeterSt, myself can all get on a Hangout's or Duo call that I'll put up on YouTube. I've no problem with those odds. I can more than hold my own. You'll find out what kind of 'meds' I'm on then.
  14. Used to own a Cary Audio Streamer. Several custom build PC's, Pi with RoipeeeXL. Far as various A/V servers it's all been broadcast industry and mainly AVB protocol with some AES67 interspersed. So nothing you would see in the home. But let's not try and shift focus away. We just experienced someone with a 100% incorrect understanding of audio distribution and DSP/ASCR etc that is a vendor making claims and recommendations. It's why it's been CRICKETS since I made my point.
