  1. Hi after all... the nas was a practical solution? Not a better sounding one? Have you tried internal storage in the one box solution. In theory it should disturb the sound but on the other hand you need a perfect network with perfect cables... thanks for you’re inside knowledge... best
  2. I also did a fresh install with the new headless download...cause update from inside did not work for me ... even the suggested way crashed the system...with the new image everything was smooth...
  3. Hi is it possible to bring the server into sleep mode and after wake-up Roon did not need to rerun the database? I know it’s good for the equipment to be warm , but for me it would be nice if there is some kind of standby? thanks
  4. Hi I am trying to build my server as a onebox-solution. maybe if it’s better for soundquality I will need an endpoint too. But first things first. What would you recommend for highest soundquality in Audiolinux Roon Hqplayer--Setup. At the moment I try with a intel i7 gamingboard to boot from usb-stick and put the roondatabase on the optanedrive. Maybe this is stupid but I thought this is what romaz and co recommend but they are now on euphony.... next step is ram-mode when everything is up and running... my mainquestion- is it worth to split roondatabase in Optane and system in ram or should I put everything on the optanedrive... i would be glad to have some more input to this...I will post my findings... thanks
  5. I have Roon sometimes with Hqplayer...I can hear the differences from flac to aiff, and aiff is much better... even the ripping speed/ software/ hardware matters... but that’s easy to try out yourself... good listening...
  6. Hi I think of building a new server with i9 as rooncore and maybe Hqplayer4...now I am asking myself if I should go with an optical Ethernet pcie-card direct to opticalrendu or if the optical module is always suggested ? So it’s Server with jcat Femto Ethernet-Pcie to om and or.... thanks
  7. @miska Hi There are so many possibilities and I would like to break it down to some recommendations? when the server is ideal ( will never happen)- what is the preferred hardware for great sound quality. What is the recommended solution for an NAA endpoint. you make a bootable image for low power systems...or sms200neo or a beefy pink faun server... thanks for helping
  8. Hi has anyone made experience with the „new findings - best lpsu is key“ and Roon-HQPlayer? I get the Idea for Euphony and the 2powerfull i9-or better-pinkfaunlike solutions, but when it comes to NAA - HQPlayer is this still your finding or is there maybe a lowpower-endpoint like sms200neo or one of the sugested minipcs a better solution.. The listening experience from ausinpop and and romaz are Euphony Roon audiolinux (and other os) based- as far as I read. But what is the experience with the outstanding- in my experience so far- HQPlayer. any hardware-combinations ...suggestions ...? thanks for sharing your experience
  9. ok...i try to be more specific and i think its a bootloader-problem with intel nuc. (you can read ad intel that they do not officialy support linux.) --------------------------------- "pierro said....In audiolinux 2.2.0 and Ubuntu : EFI --> BOOT --> BOOTx64.EFI The same. Ubuntu USB however is using the old dos partition type instead of gpt and grub as bootloader. Maybe NUC can boot only with grub (in UEFI), since you know that with syslinux and systemd-boot cannot. -------------------------- after installing audiolinux via ubuntu live and rebuilding the disk with gparted the nuc brings the news...no bootable divice found. in the bios- all the security options are off and boot is switched to uefi... thanks for helping
  10. ok, i could try this but this is some kind of a workaround for every single image-upgrade. i am not too much in linux but as far as my understanding goes, you did change back to efi mode, cause grub bootloader is not uefi? i think... this is not a real solution cause all future updates will be uefi. and i did install audiolinux with ubuntu-live disk. at the moment i am stuck with audiolinux2.01 and internal updates, cause this old image is working in efi-mode... thanks
  11. isn't it in the headline? intel nuc 7i7bnh the fastest for rock/roon... newest bios- also tried older ones... thanks for helping
  12. hi i moved from rock to audiolinux as roonserver with hqplayer to sms200ultra... after audiolinux-version 2.01 uefi is mandatory. did anyone with this nuc uefimode working? the nuc has a m.2 harddisk. would be kind if someone could share his or her experience...great and thank you..... piero from audiolinux was totally helpful but we couldn't find out what the problem is, so i think its a special bios/board problem.
