    Qobuz Lossless Streaming Service Thread

    I’m at the end of my 30 day trial. I’ve had no technical problems on Win 7, Win 10, Mac or ipad. The issue is the at times limited catalogue.

    Yes, best example is patent pools between large firms with no payments make. Patents only get used against other firms.

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    I'm about to send my Yggy in for the Analog 2 update. I'm not sure about doing to Gen 5 USB update as well since I use the AES / EBU input -- anyone know if that input is improved by the Gen 5 upgrade?

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    I've been having very serious streaming freezes for the last few days. Now I'm having freezes on a Saturday morning, which is puzzling if it is a server capacity issue on Tidal's side. I've had less frequent freezes in the past, but this latest occurrence is more serious. It freezes during a...

    Not really a concern (yet), but I wasn't able to follow the reasoning about how overcurrent fault protection was starving the output stage of bias current when you feed Rag a sine wave (but not music).

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    Most recent update, at least on Win 7, make the interface much faster.  Much less waiting.  Actually good.

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    Yep, not something everyone will notice, it only becomes visible if one mouses over.   Not a good design.     Now how do make it stop going back to 'system default'?  Def. better in exclusive mode.

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    Yes, what did the update to 1.2.0.697 do?  I don't see WASPI, though there is 'use exclusive mode' and 'force volume'.  Maybe that is WASPI?     Annoyingly, Tidal always resets to 'system default' when I close/reopen it.     Update: the new setting may be an improvement...or I'm fooling...

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Yes, the very few times I've turned my Yggy off, I did have some hangs on booting it up again.  Has always resolved after one or two tries...but it does take a few moments to tell if it has made it.  Just tried it, came back on the first try, took a bit over 50 seconds.  So I leave it on.

    My s/o is harmless compared to my kids.  My s/o has a friendly 'if it makes you happy' view...my kids don't have that perspective yet.

    yggdrasil technical measurements

    Yes, please don't do it for anything but your own purposes.  In any case, I'm not going to switch Dacs right now...but I am flexible about inputs.  I hear Moffat likes AES, but I also see concerns that AES may be misdisigned for high sample rate digital and hence more jittery than it ideally...
