About Me

  1. Hello, Since Damien will start beta semi public (need registration) tomorrow of his 3.5 version, i thought it would be good to have a new thread for it For those enrolled in it, you should start by shutting down your old version of A+ and copy your Software in applications folder, your preferences of it and your 3.2.x database, just in case you wanted to go back Apple hide the Home Folder in User Library at some time depending on OS System... When you have clicked your Home Folder, and cannot see the Library Folder in there, just do a ''cmd J'' to show the folder settings preferences and see at the bottom... click Show Library Folder and then you'll have access to the rest forever. Copy application Audirvana Plus from the Applications folder with ALT key to make a second copy... It will have a 2 number at the end. Drag it out and save it to a new folder. Now delete the copy in Applications folder you just made. You're back like you were before... Go to User... Home Folder... Library... Applications Support... Audirvana Folder... Copy the file AudirvanaPlusDatabase.sqlite (that is your database of music) to your new folder with the copy of the software you just made. Go to User... Home Folder... Library... Preferences... Copy com.audirvana.Audirvana-Plus.plist in that folder (those are A+ software preferences) again to the new folder you made for backup old 3.2 version. So now, you have 3 things backed up.... The Application 3.x.x, the database and your preferences. Now check for update within application menu It will create a new database file with a V2 in the name... the old will still be there, but for myself i remove it just to not have things happen between the two. you can leave it here if you want, since you have made a backup anyway... Happy music!
  2. I've used Audirvana on and off for a few years and usually have as many options turned on as possible. Over the time I've noticed sometimes the sound can be a bit bright or harsh and I've noticed it seems to back off a bit with Direct Mode switched off. I've generally thought that's probably because it is not getting as a good a signal with it switch off, and perhaps because of expectation bias I leave it turned on. But the last 24 hours I've been doing DSD comparisons and I noticed that I can actually hear more detail with Direct Mode switched off with the Resonessence Herus. I haven't read many opinions about whether people generally have Direct Mode switched on or not. I would be interested to hear other people's experiences. With Direct Mode on, it feels like the DAC is being slightly overdriven, initially it sounds quite a bit better, but it is a bit like an overexposed photo where the detail is harder to see (that's the best analogy I could think of!).
  3. Noob question alert. I have a slight hearing imbalance, and need to nudge the right speaker/headphone up by 3dB before outputting to my DAC. What's the easiest way to do this in Audirvana? If this is handled by a plugin, can you recommend a lightweight plugin that can do this? (I'm currently using Blue Cat Audio's BC Gain plugin, which seems like overkill. Not to mention 100MB!)
  4. So, the one persistent problem I have with Audirvana is switching the audio system preferences. Right now I have three systems (1) main ethernet >ultra rendu> Gumby (2) office iMac > usb>Eitr>qutest ( or imac>optical out >qutest) and (3) bedroom headphone station airport express>ethernet>mrendu>bimby. Switching to the rendus is usually a big hassle where I have to refresh the rendus and ar several times to get ar to recognize the rendu, and sometimes even after I connect to the rendu, ar switches back to eitr. switching to the eitr from a rendu is less of a problem. However, I have had problems when I have been using the digital optical out from the iMac to feed the qutest. In that case, I have trouble switching to usb/ eitr or the rendus unless I disconnect the optical connection. on the other hand, before I got the second rendu, I used raspberry pi which was almost always recognized. Is this a likely a problem with ar or is there something I am missing here.
  5. I have been streaming iPad Tidal > Wifi > Apple TV optical > DAC. Upgrading to having a Mac connected via USB to Wyred 4 Sound Remedy USB Reclocker > USB to DAC so i can not only stream in better quality but also create a music server. The sonic improvement has been eye opening. I am deciding between using a MAC Mini (2.5 Ghz and 8GB RAM) vs. the latest MacBook Air (1.6 GHZ and 8GB RAM. Pros and Cons from my perspective; its nice to have a new laptop for occasional use and if it gets removed from the server/streaming chain occasionally i can stream using the iPad to Apple TV as before.The Mac Mini has more horsespower a TB drive on board for ripping most of my CDs to and perhaps i would have more apps and processes always turned off on the Mac Mini so a "quieter" computer might sound a bit better. On the other hand as far as storage is concerned a 1TB external drive to augment the MacBook air is pretty darn cheap. Thoughts? Setting up the music server and using the iPad as a remote is also pretty new to me so any recommendations on Remote Control software would be appreciated. Just to get started experimenting using TeamViewer but will probably demo Audirvana for improving sound quality and using their Remote from the App Store.
  6. Hi folks: sorry if this is a dumb question, but I wanted to ask if there are any reasons why I shouldn't be using an external HD (Seagate SSD Portable) to store my Audirvana library on? It's plugged into an older Macbook Pro, which in turn is connected to a Chord 2cute. I have a number of DSD files, and I wondered if there might be any speed issues with the data going through the Seagate's USB 2.0 cable to the laptop? Any and all advice gratefully received, thanks...
  7. I just upgraded to 3.1. Not really a big change to me as I still use my USB DAC and not a streamer, but probably good news for people with Network players. Maybe after 67 pages in the old thread it is time for a new thread? Post your experiences here.
  8. Is there a way for me to switch Audirvana on and off while listening to Tidal? I'm running Audirvana's free trial right now and I'd like to know what I'm actually gaining by using it. If I can switch it out, I'd be able to do an A/B comparison before springing for the $75.
  9. Hi! Finally decided to try Audirvana 3.0 now that it unfolds MQA. I am using a 2011 Mac Mini i7 with 16GB of memory and a SSD, I am using my Marantz 8802a as the dac through HDMI. The Mini works just fine until I try to use Audirvana with the Marantz using HDMI; 1. If I try to use HDMI for both display and for audio (the HDMI cable goes out to the Marantz and then comes back to the display), the display blanks and resets every 5 seconds or so. 2. I then routed the video out to my display through the mini dvi port. But then the mouse acts up and twitches to a new spot on the screen every 5 seconds or so making using the mouse pretty difficult. Works fine if I do not use the Marantz as an HDMI doc, but that is my preferred choice and there isn't a problem using other music server software. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Peter
  10. I'm new to computer audio and need help with the following. I have a trial version of Audirvana Plus 3.0. I'm using a Benchmark DAC3 that can receive DSD in DoP1 format. The problem I have is that the Forced Upsampling to DSD option in Audirvana is greyed-out and Audirvana does not recognize the DAC's DSD capability. Otherwise, and in PCM format, Audirvana and the DAC play well together. What am I not doing correctly?
  11. Is there a tutorial available on how to tweak Audirvana Audio Settings or some listings of recommended initial settings? Thanks!
  12. Hello all - recently traded my Marantz SA8004 for an HD Dac1 and decided that I wouldn't buy a new CD player in that I have all of 2 SACD's and can rip the rest of my CD's to my hard drive to play through Audirvana. I've just started doing that using XLD and while it's outputting what appear to be flawless folders - all tracks present and in the proper order - when I import them into Audirvana they are missing tracks or are mislabeled in a strange way. For instance, ripped the XRCD of Quiet Kenny the other day. All tracks were perfect in the folder but when imported the first track was missing. With Jaki Byard's Here's Jaki, the tracks were divided into a Disc zero and a Disc 1, once again with the first track missing entirely. Anyone had this experience or have any ideas for me? Thanks. I'm using XLD on a 2012 Mac Mini running El Capitan, ripping with the Mac external drive.
  13. I subscribe to Tidal Hifi and have access to Masters encoded with MQA. My computer is connected to my McIntosh MHA100 through USB and I am using eihter Amarra Symphony or Audirvana Plus (with Tidal) + Itunes. My understanding is that Tidal by itself connected through my McIntosh will not deliver the full MQA experience and need an MQA compatible DAC. So I was told Buesound Node 2 would happen to do just that. My issue with this set-up is that the Burr Brown Chip on this 599$ (CDN) is not at the level of the DAC built in my McIntosh. Would I, at the end of the day ended up with worse quality music than feeding it with the USB cable and using my McIntosh DAC while not having the full MQA experience. Second part of this: The Audirvana Plus has MQA capability, does this solve my issues and would I get the full MQA experience? I want to integrate Blusesound in order to remove Airplay from my system because it can't stream 24 bit while bluesound could. Hope I make sense here as this is my first post. Thanks Saby
  14. As suggested from a user in the main Audirvana 3 (official) thread, I would like to create a new thread dealing only with feature requests and/or bug reports. I would welcome users to give their input into helping others (and myself) solving their problems, but would like to request that more general discussions (such as discussions on the licensing scheme, preferences of settings and equipment, etc) be limited to the official thread. I'll start off by requesting : - The remote app be updated. Being able to create playlists from the app would be very helpful - The ability to keep the screen OFF when the remote app connects to the audirvana mac - Still have system optimizer install error on 3.0.5 - any suggestions? Thanks for everyone's great input, and looking forward to continuing to see wonderful updates from Damien. Merci Damien - c'est tres apprecier ton bon travail!
  15. Hi everyone, I would like to get your opinion on my system and how to upgrade. I currently have the following setup: Source: Macbook Pro Retina, 2012 Software: Audirvana Plus and Spotify USB-output: 1x Audioquest Jitterbug USB cable: *standard* Bluetooth: Arcam Miniblink receiver Integrated Amplifier: Rotel-RA 1570 > site: RA-1570 | Rotel Speaker cable: *standard* Speakers: Bowers & Wilkins CM1 S2 > site: Experience the B&W CM1 S2 - Bowers & Wilkins | B&W Speakers I have 2 questions: • 1: I would like to upgrade to an external DAC, and I am currently looking at Chord and Schiit. However, listening to videos online, I prefer the sound of Chord more. I am specifically looking at Chord Mojo or Hugo for main setup, and to have mobility on-the-go. Does a Chord Mojo will sound better than the DAC within my current integrated amplifier? It's a: Wolfson WM8740 • 2: Any suggestions for an upgrade in speaker cables? I have been looking at Chord and Van Den Hul so far, because I heard and read they might go well with b&w and rotel. Specifically: Chord Odyssey 2, Chord Epic Twin, Van den Hul CS122. Thanks! p.s. I might add a Curious USB Cable Mojo interlink as well.
  16. @damien78 and others, I've been having problems connecting to Audirvana + running on my macmini (both versions 2 and 3 behaviour the same). Sometime it works flawlessly and yet sometimes Audirvana Remote running on my iPhone 6+ just fails to connect. I exit the app, restart it but nothing helps. And yet, for no apparent reason it eventually connects but after while it disconnects again and fails to connect. I've read a few times in the past people having similar problems but didn't see any solution(s). Is there anything I can do on macmini and/or iPhone that could help the connection problems? BTW, with my wife's iPad 2 I connect every time with no problems, and also using my MAcBook Air with screenshare no problems at all. I'd be grateful for any tips/hints on iPhone 6+ connection problems. Thanks in advance. Best. Mev
  17. Hello everyone - writing to see if I can get some help solving my issue using a Geek Out 450 with Audirvana (3) on a Mac Mini. I recently got this Geek Out 450 and have been using it with Audirvana at my office on an old Macbook Air without issue. But with my Mac Mini on my home system it's not working. I can select the Geek Out as my audio output for the Mac Mini and play spotify or Tidal from the desktop apps. But if I open Audirvana and select the Geek Out as the DAC, when I try to play a song, the song appears to load, then there is a pause, and then I get a message saying "Audio Device Stopped." Once this has happened, when I go to the Mac Mini's system preferences, the Geek Out no longer appears in the drop down menu of output options. I can only get it to be recognized by unplugging and plugging it back into the USB port on the Mini. Any help with what might be going on here is appreciated. Previously I was using Audirvana without issue on that machine with a Marantz HD-Dac1. The Mac Mini is a late 2012 model running the latest version of Sierra.
  18. Something got corrupted on my computer. If I enable Audio Units, Audirvana crashes and quits. However, it plays normally with Audio Units unchecked. I've deleted all files that I can find related to the app, but no luck. Ideas?
  19. Wondering if anyone is connecting MacBook Air as a one computer config so one usb port is connecting to dac, and internal ssd as boot drive - whats the best sq solution in your experience: 1. Use another usb port for external hdd - ssd, or just a regular drive? I play mostly dsd; 2. Use the SD card slot and better sq or not? 3. Use thunderbolt external hdd, better sq? Audirvana manual recommends making sure the high speed usb port are dedicated to usb connection to dac, not sure if the 2 usb ports on macbook air is on same circuit thus shared, therefore am wondering if using the other connection options may imprive sq. Anyone can chime in on this? Thanks.
  20. I’ve been searching this forum, but couldn’t find anything that answered all my questions. I use a iMac with a remote wireless hard drive to store music and an Apple time capsule router,, and would like to feed into a usb dac (bitfrostmb) for a remote headphone station. I’m looking to alternatives to an airport express to feed the dac because it only allows optical digital output ( other than analogue) and has the Apple airplay limits on hd. I understand that audirvana is now compatible with microrendu, but I don’t have direct internet access through an Ethernet. Would it be possible to use an airport express in client mode to convert the wireless signal to Ethernet and then feed the microrendu through the AE Ethernet output, all controlled by audirvana. If this works, would hd audio be downsampled to 16/44, when I am using audirvana and would I lose audirvanas sound enhancements?
  21. Hi all, I have a matter of months experience with Audirvana previously using a network audio player via hardware eq to dac and amp. What I am struggling with, I believe, is assessing accurately replay gain for each album I want to listen to. I know replay gain can be tagged in Audirvana but to my ears gives a poor sound. Also I am using the eq plugin and have bluecat gain plugin for some adjustments. What the software does not offer ( I believe) is any visual metering plugin to accurately render gain. I have had a bit of a search on our site and see software eq such as Fabfilter pro q 2, Izotope Ozone 8 amongst others. Is that the way to go? Any further suggestions/advice welcomed.
  22. Hello Everybody I'm new here, and my knowledge is very limited, I've only just gotten in to playing high end digital music, but it seems like the place for me to be. I have a question regarding my Dragonfly Red and my MacBook player Audirvana 3+. I have recently bought some DSD files because I was curious to how it would sound, but the Dragonfly doesn't support DSD. So there has to be some kind of conversion for it to play through my Dragonfly. Can someone tell me what the best setting for this might be? Because when I plugged and played it, the Dragonfly displayed the amber color 24/88.2 kHz. And to my knowledge it was supposed to be playing the highest possible rate when it converts DSD to PCM? Is it something with the 64 bit multistage in the DSD to PCM algorithm? Or is it just because it is the best possible option for my setup to be playing the 24/88.2 kHz rate? If I seem a little blank and confused, don't worry that is really what I am. Best regards
  23. MSB will be releasing a new firmware update for their Network Renderer, which allows the use of Audirvana + directly across the network. It will now be possible to select the Renderer as the audio source in A+. Prior to this release, the Renderer could be selected, but playback was not possible. The firmware update should be available within the next few days in the "Renderer Firmware" section at this link: http://www.msbtechnology.com/about-msb/support/ If you own the Renderer, you can eliminate your NAA/USB connection to take advantage of Audirvana's excellent sound quality.
  24. Has someone compared SQ of direct USB output from MBP/Audirvana to DAC vs. streaming to a device like Ultrarendu or USBridge with the same DAC and same USB cable ? Thanks Matt
  25. okay I have had an annoying problem using A+ to control an mr. my office system has remote drive-i-mac-audirvana-eitr-modi. My main system has ethernet-microrendu-usb-Gumby, controlled by a+ on the iMac. basically, I have occasions with no sound in the main system even though the microrendu is selected in A+. I confirmed that my computer is seeing the microrendu and the microrendu is seeing the Gumby. After much frustration, I was able to fix things by physically removing the connection between the iMac and the eitr and restarting. For the moment everything is working and I am able to toggle between systems by changing the output selection in A+. But it feels like there is an intermittent compatibility issue between A+ and eitr, where A+ at times will try to send a signal to the eitr, even though I’ve chosen mr as output. any other explanations?
