  1. After fiddling around for a hole day and night with a lot of help from Piero and none from Jcat I found the troublemaker. The XE. It seems not to be compatible with the monoprice slimrun. i can see now, that this is discussed here before but without any working stable solution. i think Jcat should work on this. All other USB ports on the mainboard working without any complains 24-7... also when they know it’s not compatible, they should warn on their site for compatibility issues! That’s what the say.... Plug & Play in any PC or mini PC with a PCI
  2. I have a 2.5 A 5V Powerbank and a second 3A and a switching psu... always the same No I can not see the usb memory
  3. HI @Marcin_gps @hifi25nl, @Miskaand everybody how can help... I had a quiet stable One-Box solution. Mainboard: Asus Pro WS C246-ACE CPU: Intel Xeon E-2276G @ 3.80GHz Ram: 2x 16gb Hynix ECC unbuffered DDR4 PC$-21300 UDIMM *New Sound: Jcat XE USB with external Powerbank Net: Jcat Femto Net Hdplex Software: Audiolinux Headless, Roonserver,Hqplayer all up to date... Usb goes to LKS 004 Amanero 2006be10 Now the Jcat XE is making headache. Roon is still running without any problem so far...but when I change to HQplayer output -

    HQ Player

    @Miska will there a embedded version with sinc L thanks
  5. Hi is there a way to bring Audiolinux headless in standby or sleep mode and wake it up without a mouse? And or is it possible to power it down and stop Roon from scanning the hole library every time at startup... i have a Xeon server one box setup with HQPlayer and Roon in Rammode... thanks for helping
  6. Hi i am selling my Sms200 Ultra Neo with Sotm sps500 and Ghent Cable. All in perfect condition. asking 1200€ + Shipping From Berlin Germany
  7. @romaz you are powering the Monoprice usb? Cause of better sound? I thought they don’t need external power... thanks and thanks again for your deep inside...
  8. Thanks again Rajiv... Maybe my answer/question was to short. and i was expecting your answer. you are totaly right and i can see your point. thank you for the hint to read the massive post...i am following it for a long time already. the question was just a moment to take a step back and look to the result with all the diffrent and expansive boxes and cables- maybe it´s gone too far? i have a lot of boxes and cables myself and try to find a simpler solution, but maybe there is none- only if i am happy to spend the money for an Taiko extreme -which i am not ... From your point o
  9. Thanks for this extensive review and the different evaluations. I still have a basic question. Did you try once, playing form an internal drive in your music computer? I know in "theory" there is no difference for stylus in ram. But you need all the different stuff and different cables to feed a „one-box-solution“? Thanks again for your impressive deep review. Btw…nice music decision…
  10. 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
  11. 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...
  12. 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
  13. 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 a
  14. 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...
  15. 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
  16. @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
  17. 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 ...suggest
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. isn't it in the headline? intel nuc 7i7bnh the fastest for rock/roon... newest bios- also tried older ones... thanks for helping
  21. 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.
