    Funnily enough, I am partial to the odd dog or two.

    I had my eye on a good pre-owned second dog at a bargain price on Black-Friday sale.

    But on second thoughts, one never really knows what might turn up when that delivery person knocks on your door on Saturday morning! :ksc75smile:

    P.S. dog-owners, never give your dog any chocolate as it will likely kill them!

    Seems I'm seriously out of the loop. When did Fiio sneak out new USB drivers? Went to do a clean install and found they're v.4.1. Been using a v3 drivers on my other machine
    Speaking of drivers… has anybody been able to make native USB 2.0 audio drivers work under Win 10. That was supposed to be in the Spring update, but I've never been able to figure it out

    So far Black Friday has been absolutely Rat-Schitt


    Hopefully things will improve - but I doubt it?

    Haven't found much that had me running for the buy now button either

    @peter123 what model are those Onkyos? You seemed pretty hyped bout them on the other thread…
  6. peter123
    It's the A800 and yeah, pretty great sounding :wink:

    What are your plans for the Pi? I hear they make a pretty good music server <hint hint>
  8. peter123
    That's exactly what it's doing, works like a charm. Seem to be able to run most DACs I've tried it with so far. Does Airplay, DLNA, Spotify and of course music from attached hard-drive. All controlled from my phone, pretty neat for $40 ish including the housing.

    Edit: Check out RuneAudio, it's a OS for the Pi deigned to turn it into a music center, has it's own app as well. I'm still learning but it's really fun :wink:

    Very nearly bought a used one myself. Had the SPDIF board and the works. The thing that stopped me was DAPhile won't run on ARM type processors - that and my old clunky laptop that was formerly just gathering dust is happily doing server duties already. It's a pretty slick system. DAPhile is designed around the Logitech Music / Squeezebox system so any app that can control them will work for me. Since DAPhile is made to run on x86/x64 processors I can do stupid s--t like upsample everything to DSD256 and not have the system melt down:ksc75smile:. I do still prefer using a program with a proper UI like Musicbee over an app, but when I'm too lazy to boot my laptop the server does the trick

    A quick search and it looks like another model not sold in Canada (cue sad trombones:disappointed_relieved:)

    I bought - everybody ready for this - a trackball for my laptop (hangs head in shame and shuffles from the room)

    actually, a couple o tubes I bought for my amp a week ago arrived in the mail today - telefunken ecc189 (gloriously named) and a '50s vintage GE 5670 (totally adorable. so tiny, like the tube equivalent of a puppy - gotta wait for my adapter to show before I can listen however)
