Re: Ethernet regenerator

How much of an improvement is it compared to the investment? Or could you equate it with a component upgrade? I'm keen to hear one, but there won't be any available until next year

Re: JBL 3677

Both done. Sounds better overall, makes you sing more. Reveals more character in some stuff for sure. Piano is much better. This is not a shock, the insulation in it before was so thin it probably didn't do anything at all except annoy me when taking it out. (It wasn't that hard to do, just had to ...

Re: Debian 9 Stretch

I have a Debian Stretch Hakai, and followed Sopper's instructions. The one thing I did a little differently was I installed mpd first with apt-get install mpd. This installed an old version, but set up the environment correctly. I then built the version I wanted via the instructions which went over ...

Re: FRIWO 12 v medical grade PSU for Netgear GS108 switch

I'm looking at getting a Friwo power supply for my GS108T. The MPP15 seems to be the recommended one. I've noticed that the desktop version DT50 has more current for less money. Does anyone know if the brick designs are better or worse than the wall worts?

Re: Debian/MPD: Recent/Latest Versions?

I just tried out mpd 0.21.13. Nah. It's a bit more hifi, less musical. Not by much, but stay on 0.21.11.
I also had a go at upmpdcli 1.4.2. It's very close to 1.3.8, but I prefer 1.3.8. It's very minor though.

Re: Debian/MPD: Recent/Latest Versions?

Yes, I've really been enjoying the new mpd version too. The way I went back with upmpdcli was to get the source and compile, the same way as with mpd.

Re: Debian/MPD: Recent/Latest Versions?

I'm running upmpdcli 1.3.8. I tried the 1.4 versions but thought it was a step back, so went back to 1.3.8. I could be wrong though.

Re: Debian/MPD: Recent/Latest Versions?

I recently went from mpd 0.21.5 to 0.21.11 and found it to be an improvement in sound and musicality. In the release notes there are some Alsa fixes for that version which might have helped. I can now play wav files where I couldn't on previous 0.21.xx versions. I haven't tried the 2 later versions....

Initial listening impressions, I like the plain Debian Stretch install better. Richer sounding and more musical.

Re: Snakeoil OS

I've just got Snakeoil installed on my Hakai as a renderer, and it's working. I haven't got the activated version, so I installed upmpdcli manually via SSH. The weird thing to do to get it going is the player selection. I selected the server to be on, with MPD 20, or 21 if you have the latest firmwa...

Re: Volumio.

The first thing that comes to mind is the audio buffer setting. Maybe this new version has a different default. Try increasing it to see if it makes any difference.

0.20.21 serious? Or typo?
I take that back. 0.21.xx is better. I was distracted by some "sound" qualities, not musicality.

Re: Debian 9 Stretch

I think mpd is already doing the converting, which is why it's stuttering. It has to get down to 16/44.1 to be output

Re: Debian 9 Stretch

Do you have minimserver? You could specify to convert flac above 16/44.1 to wav or flac 16/44.1. That might still let you use 256.

Re: Debian 9 Stretch

I used the build it yourself method originally listed. I think the audio buffer size has a greater impact on the 0.20.xx versions.

Yes, 0.20.21
Maybe it suits my system more than the later versions. It sounds more live and emotional to me.

After more variations, I've got it to sound the best it has yet. I'm finding MPD 0.20.21 the best sounding version. Why that's different to my previous thoughts are I hadn't realized the mpd.conf file didn't have an audio_buffer setting, so it was using the default 4096. Once I put it to 256, wow. I...

Re: Debian 9 Stretch

Just tried 0.21.4, still no WAV playback. I might have been imagining it, but it might not have sounded as good as 0.21.3? I've gone back to 0.21.3 anyway.
