    Re: CD Players On Their Way In Or Out?

    I use a USB-C data key. My new car does not have a CD Player but the Burmester system can use the USB-C ports.

    Re: CD Players On Their Way In Or Out?

    I have an Oppo spinner that I rarely actually spin a disk with. I reserve it for a special use!

    Every disk I purchase gets one spin and add it to my server.

    I have Brother In Arms in SACD...

    Re: CD Players On Their Way In Or Out?

    I would venture a guess this is because convenience. Whenever I have thought about getting back into vinyl I think about how back in the day to how I would clean an album on my VPI cleaner (very...
  8. Re: Question about using USB for data input and out to DAC

    By far, your best way of storing data for playback is internal within the computer/server. The question of transporting the data becomes moot since at the worse SATA does not have any issues and at...
  9. Re: Question about using USB for data input and out to DAC

    In my configuration I use USB for data in on my DAC. The signal coming from my server to the Recovery and then to the DAC. Output from my DAC is analog, ala, why it is called a DAC (digital to...

    Awesome looking system... those speakers are crazy!
  11. Re: Computer with Roon and HQPlayer discussion.

    I know of many reasons that manufactures use Linux... working with one for some time... I can tell you many times it is not primarily SQ, other factors are involved.

    There is very good reasons...
  12. Re: Computer with Roon and HQPlayer discussion.

    That is all very cool and I can understand his concerns. My only real thought is that with current systems, multi-core processors, incredibly fast RAM, optimized motherboards, amazingly fast new M.2...
  13. Re: Computer with Roon and HQPlayer discussion.

    Ah, got ya. I figured you probably had something like that but I did not recognize the multi-channel DAC! Very cool indeed. I am sure your machine could provide the Lampi with incredible DSD512...
  14. Re: Computer with Roon and HQPlayer discussion.

    That's cool, I hope it does a great job for you. Since I really hear a huge different with DSD, especially higher level DSD I am very satisfied with my T+A and Windows.

    I see no reason of...
  15. Re: Computer with Roon and HQPlayer discussion.

    Dang, that sounds like a monster of a CPU for sure! That might possibly be more powerful then my i7-9700K.

    The i7-6950X 3.00 Ghz base clock and 3.50 Ghz turbo speed. With 10 cores and 20 threads...
  16. Re: Computer with Roon and HQPlayer discussion.

    I don't disagree. Everything is important, of course. Especially your points about quality of Power Supply and quality of the case. Even though internal vibration is becoming a much smaller factor...
  17. Re: Computer with Roon and HQPlayer discussion.

    Thank you, and yea, a laptop is really not a great choice for this purpose :)...

    I have found in my tests that HQPlayer appears to be very CPU intensive!

    My new i7 8 cores works superbly...
  18. Computer with Roon and HQPlayer discussion.

    I was curious what computer specs people are finding work well with Roon and HQPlayer.

    Re: Ref 10 Replacement in Feb 2020 ?

    If I could comfortably afford one I would probably give one a try. Even if it didn't sound any better then the Stage 2 I think the prestige and history of ARC might win out.

    Thanks AJ. I am not a huge sub fan but I agreed with Jon that the lower octave was being rolled off. I also believe that Andrew Jones has designed some pretty amazing products that perform well...
