  1. Re: Does size matter? Capacitors - few big vs many smaller

    I don't know enough about this, but there are people in my company that do. In one experiment, the power supply to our S1 streamer with internal DAC was modified to have a different capacitor...

    Re: Lumin App Request

    Not going well at this point, although I would not rule out this possibility.

    Spotify HiFi would be a huge threat to other streaming services, especially those that do not offer HiRes.

    Re: Lumin App Request

    In addition to implementing support for Spotify HiFi, we are doing a major rewrite of our Lumin Android app to improve stability, hopefully, and to add a few UI features such as adding two more...

    Re: Bit confused about Roon

    In that product page, you should only choose the the i7 because the rest is not quad core. That's a NUC7i7DNHE, which I believe is equivalent to Nucleus Plus revision B. Although I prefer NUC8 as...

    Re: Bit confused about Roon

    Get the NUC8i7BEH (or i5) with the m.2 Samsung 970 (or 980) as boot drive with 16GB RAM (in case you change to Windows later). Normally for ROCK installation, you just need the smallest capacity...

    Re: Bit confused about Roon

    That is one of the reasons why I always tell people to use fanless Roon Core or fanless NAS. Naturally our own L1 product is also fanless. Same for the EUR24k server.

    To continue this discussion, we will have to make a distinction between NUC and Nucleus.

    NUC is a general purpose computer manufactured by Intel, at a price that is similar to a normal PC. You...

    In order to reduce confusion, you should setup the Melco as Roon Ready to use with the K-03XD first. At this stage please ignore MinimServer for now. (MinimServer becomes relevant only if you...

    Re: Bit confused about Roon

    Rule 1 is applicable to generic PC (not audiophile modified) or Mac as a Roon Core, not referring to EUR24K servers I believe.

    Re: Bit confused about Roon

    If you're using Melco, you can upgrade the Melco firmware to latest 2021 version and use it as a Roon Ready streamer to use with your DAC for Roon playback without buying anything.

    Re: Bit confused about Roon

    Tidal / Qobuz music goes through the Roon Core, then over the LAN to the Roon Ready streamer (via RAAT protocol).

    You have to have internet to use Roon even if you don't play music from internet,...
  15. Re: Lumin App: DSD album tracks not playing by track number

    Please fix the Track Number tags (using mp3tag or other tag editor software), then rescan the MinimServer.

    Re: Lumin X1 Fiber Optic Network Discussions

    If you mean Roon Core - (RJ45) X1 (SFP) - SFP Switch, yes that'll work. There is a school of thought that prefers a direct network connection between the source (Roon Core) and the endpoint (Lumin)...

    Re: Fiber optic Vs Cat type Ethernet cable

    This is preference dependent. You will have to try it to find out whether you like or not.

    If you're using Lumin A1, your choice of FMC is limited due to the 100Mbps Ethernet port.

    Gain is a function of DAC and amp. You changed the DAC / amp of course the gain will be different. The streamer having bit perfect output cannot make a difference in measured gain. To prove this,...
