    Re: Esoteric N-01

    For the Spotify issue, try this: power down your N-01, iPad and all network switches and access points, and the whole network infrastructure. Power cycle the router. Wait for 5 minutes, then power up the network switches. Wait for 2 minutes, then power up the N-01 and iPad.

    To play Tidal MQA you have to use the Esoteric Sound Stream app or Lumin app. The N-01 needs to be running the latest firmware - 10.1i for the network board and 1.02 for the system firmware. This way the N-01 network board directly streams from Tidal via the internet.

    If you use AirPlay from iPad to play YouTube, the audio is sent from iPad (via WiFi) to N-01.

    If you use AirPlay from MacBook Air to play anything, the audio is sent from MacBook Air to N-01. AirPlay is restricted to 16/44.1 so it is not ideal for MQA. This way the Tidal software on MacBook Air gets the music data from Tidal via internet, then formats it as AirPlay and delivers it to N-01.

    Note that after testing AirPlay the Spotify app will use it to stream to N-01 instead of Spotify Connect. To recover from it, in Spotify app switch the device to iPad, then back to N-01.

    Tidal MQA works fine, it sounds OK (on par with Spotify Premium), but the UI is clunky compared with Spotify.

    Spotify Connect doesn't work at all, I suspect something got broken in a recent App update that stops it communicating with the SDK binary loaded in the N-01. Reset of my local infrastructure didn't restore normal operation.

    SoundStream works fine, including Spotify Airplay. But as I've discovered, if you close the Airplay control device playback stops. Whereas for Spotify Connect it keeps playing if you close the control point (because N-01 is grabbing content directly from Spotify and not the control point).

    Try this:
    - Power down the N-01
    - Use a pin to insert into the very small hole near the Ethernet port and the USB drive port.
    - While holding the pin, power on the N-01 and keep holding it
    - The pin needs to be held for at least 20 seconds

    This is why I love love my K-01x -- when my server acts up, just pop in a CD, press play and relax.

    @brodricj if you have not done the above yet, upgrade the N-01 to firmware 10.3j using the Esoteric Sound Stream app. After the upgrade is completed, in app settings, turn off Spotify Connect then turn it back on again.

    See if these two procedures solve your Spotify Connect issue.

    Cool, that fixed it! Spotify Connect back up and running!

    This must be a new firmware as I checked recently and I was up-to-date. Checked today and 10.3j was there. Installed it, and now normal operation has been restored.

    I'm just clearing the decks in advance of Esoteric releasing the replacement for D1, which I'll buy with N-03T.

    Everything included as per new. Condition is 100% unblemished from new.
    I am interested in the N-01, not the G02X though. Please PM me if you can just sell the N-01 alone. I am too new to this forum to be able to PM :/

    I'm sorry I can't, but maybe Mike could do it for you. If you make 8 more posts, you'll be good to go.
