So how's the P5 sound now?They're my best portable headphones, but at the beginning I hated them exactly like you, unimpressed at the point I was asking myself how B&W could sell this crap! Don't mess filling pads the first days, they need to memorize your ear shape, just let them play a lot, and maybe later do the mod only if bass is too boomy.My last pair of pads were OK from start and don't need any mod. I believe B&W made its own mod in the meantime.
 Of course it's possible to stream those big DSD files to iPhone/iPad without buffering issues!It can be done in the home network and even on the go using portable battery powered wi-fi server devices (Seagate Wireless Plus or LaCie Fuel for example). If you can't, there's something wrong in your setup: hardware or software.Any piece of the chain must be choosen and set-up properly or you'll not succeed, that's why I've started this thread, it's not so simple! You need to...
Thanks for sharing but I'm not able to follow your istructions using telnet included in Windows 7. First I was able to connect only using "open" command, since "telnet" command is not recognized.Second, I was able just once to "open 172.25.0.1", but then the command line ln -s /media/sda2/java/ejre1.7.0_71/bin/java /usr/local/bin has not create anything.Now I receive an "impossible to connect..." message every time I try to "open 172.25.0.1". So I can't try anything...
HiGrahamL, Thanks for sharing. Could you give us detailed istructions on how to directly extract DoP ALAC from DSF without converting them first to DoP FLAC in foobar? Let us know. Thank you
Thanks for the tip, but I've tried that and still crashes, I still have to convert twice for now.
Thanks for the tip, but JRiver has same behavior as before: or it crashes ot I get DoP ALAC at 352,8Khz 24bit (no options are configurable under DSP settings after DSD1x is selected).   Where is located and which device or software has the "Advance" > "Rescan Interval" you're referring to?
Thank you very much for the translation, I'll try it on the Seagate Wireless Plus 2TB in the following days and let you know. BTW, after I've loaded into it nearly 1,5 TB of music it is very slow to scan all files (1 hour to be ready) and it do it everytime you restart it, not practical at all. So for now that slow scan issue is much more important than find a solution to convert directly to DoP ALAC from DSF (JRiver crashes for me but I can still use safely that trick in...
That translation from japanese!... PLEASE 8) I doubt 8player streams 24bit FLACs or DoP FLACs bit-perfectly, in my experience with different DACs it plays those but I guess downconverted to 16bit at 44 or 48khz dunno for sure since it seems 8player doesn't recognize the FLAC frequency: it sticks with the first file freq received in FLAC and then does not change even if you feed different files samples or format, you need to reconnect the DAC to have only the first file...
From what I've learned here http://dsd-guide.com/dop-open-standardUSB audio standard 2.0 can only allow to transfer DSD in PCM frames (inside FLAC or ALAC for example), but the hardware vendor could develop a specific USB ASIO driver which supports both PCM and native DSD.So, using USB: DSD in DoP format without a specific ASIO driver or also native DSD but only with ASIO.Apple OS only allow a PCM path (even if some software ASIO MAC is avaiable, it's generally not...
 With the Oppo BDP-105D I must disable DoPE in JRiver (and disable HDMI and other options in the player) and stream native DSD64 over ethernet.With the iFi Nano iDSD I need to enable DoPE in JRiver, but that's still DSD transferred in PCM frames, not a standard PCM file which do not contain DSD at all.So it depends on the DAC used, but the files are always the same DSFs and DSD streamed should be the same. I don't have problems too streaming large files to iPad/iPhone...
