    Qobuz Lossless Streaming Service Thread

    I don't think this is what's going on. My current best guess is that the sample rate indicated in the lower right is actually correct, but that my WASAPI (exclusive mode) API is somehow being confused by the Quboz app to set the wrong sample rate, and then sample rate converting. But that's...

    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.

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    Has anyone else had this problem: as of around 10 days now, Tidal updates to 2.2.1 or now 2.2.2, but then won't work. After the update I can't log into my account and use the app. I can revert to an earlier app version. But since there's no way to disable the auto-updates, if I log out or...

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    I've been puzzled by this claim. Why would it be important to have a closed form solution? Isn't the filtering problem to recreate the best or at least a good estimate of the original waveform before encoding/sampling? Spitting back out the original samples is something different than that...

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Very helpful: it's not the sine wave, it the high power sine wave that leads to debiasing.  And yes, I don't really care how the amp does on high powered sine inputs.

    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).

    Schiit Ragnarok Amplifier

    My Rag get pretty hot, but on the bottom, not the top.  I can put my hand on the top and keep it there (and I'm pretty heat sensitive).  I'd not touch the bottom for more than a split second.  I have my Rag up off the Yggy, so it doesn't heat the Yggy too much.

    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...

    The 'per se' is doing the work here, I hazard.  A DAC with a 'completely different' purpose.  Which is?  I assumed it was room correction or some form of digital cross-over, but I'd not count that as completely different purpose.

    I'd go for something with DEQXeque functionality -- did just get a Yggy and I'm not breaking that set-up or paying DEQX prices.  I did look into it a bit.

    What else is there?  ADC?  Not seeing anything obvious here.

    Thanks!  I'll give it a try.

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    Any way to give Tidal (on Win 7) 'exclusive control' to a playback device?  I'm used to that from Foobar2000.
