    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

    Serves me right for saying I've had no technical problems: playing Qobuz today on Win 10, I see that the app appears to be mislabeling the bit depth and sample rate of tracks (indicated on the bottom right). Oh well...

    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...

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    This appears like it may have been a local connection problem. I rebooted the Verizon Optical Network Terminal (ONT) (which is not the router, I'd already tried that), no problems since then. No idea why the ONT is giving me trouble, but this is the 3rd or 4th time I've need to do this in the...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    What's your exposure to Yggy/Rag/other amp?  Thanks!

    Yep, that sounds crazy. nothing you should put up with.  I was going to weight in before, but I didn't.  I had a HT Omega Claro+ soundcard a while back, but go rid of it, but not for this reason.  My memory is getting too vague...got replaced by Gungnir.

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    Tidal isn't loading tracks for me right now.  Interface is otherwise fine, loads fine and fast except for actually playing music.  First time this has happened for month...it used to be a huge issue, sad to see it's back, at least for this Sunday morning.   Quote:   I'm mostly posting to...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    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.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    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.

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

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

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I'm pretty much totally happy with the stuff that I have that Schiit makes.  The margin for improvement is on the transducer side and room treatments, maybe (?) room treatment related DSP.   In the longer run I might go for a bigger and better Rag Uber/Rag 2.  How much room is there for...

    How does Dirac Live (or similar) play with Yggy?  I've not tried it and I'm not going to use the free trial until I'm in a new house in a next month.  Does it destroy (most) of the filter magic?

    Schiit Gungnir DAC

    As people say, snapping the USB board in is trivial.  Watch out to unscrew the right screws opening up the case (i.e. don't detach any boards).  Getting the LEDs lined up was easy for me working alone, but you it did seem like it could get messed up if you bent them out of alignment somehow.  ...

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    I have a AES/EBU cable shipping, shows up on W.  Currently using my wife's MBP since I can't get the USB driver installed on my PC.  Hoping this will have the good final state of finding that AES/EBU is better than USB.

    Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff)

    What I never get with this type of statement is that this seems to conflate dynamic range and resolution.  They are not the same thing.  The sequence  1.01, 1.02, 1.04, 1.01, etc has less dynamic range than the sequence 2, 1, 2, etc, but you need more resolution to represent it.  There's still...

    Yes, I know I'm probably overspecing here and also out of my depth (but I might learn something as a consequence...I've built several standard Windows and linux machines before, not really a learning experience now).  I'm still basically puzzeled why the input matters at all for a digital...

      I'm currently stuck on toslink since I can't get the USB driver to install on my Win 7 machine.  Tried lots of things (different USB cable, pretty much alll USB ports, uninstalling all USB drivers, including ones for hidden devices, deleting the driver store file linking drivers to devices...

    I've been wondering about dual amping with a 'fancier' version, using some burrito filter equivalent to cross over. Not that I'd buy it unless it is really affordable.
