Are we only interested in HAKAI streamers or do HAKAI based NAS devices count as well?

I have one of each.
That's fine, pile them on!

Re: HAKAI playground

Clip A was the Tinker Board S with Volumio playing from the on board SSD. As I prepared it for play part of me hoped it would sound terrible but it didn't. In my view it's pure luck that the board sounds good despite being compromised by the on board SSD and the micro USB power supply. In the next ...

Matt,

I used a Tinker Board S, flashed it with Volumio not the Primo. Clip B was the Hakai.
Wow!..I hope I am wrong and TB is better than Hakai

Re: Snakeoil OS

Currently using Snakeoil as the OS for my NAS - Snakeoil and minimserver are maybe a little better than Win7 and Asset UPnP. At any rate, I've no desire to revert! Does anybody have the command line instructions to install Asset and then start on bootup? That way I can compare minimserver and Asset...

Re: Snakeoil OS

Initial listening impressions, I like the plain Debian Stretch install better. Richer sounding and more musical. That is impressive Fatjulio I've usually found a more rich sound leaves things less musical, do you have any comparative clips so we can compare, seeing that statements about sound quali...

I hear A as easy to follow individual instruments but not agreeing on where to put the beat down (machine gun beat). I hear B as them trying to agree on the beat almost (not quite) getting it right.
So are you saying B is right and A is wrong Beck
