Re: HAKAI

Thank you for the report David! Looking forward to hear about your long-term conclusions. One thing that might not have been discussed is that the variation during burn-in are quite big. I think you should listen to the HAKAI for a few weeks, feel how it feels, and then go back to the ADS, rather th...

So what's the verdict this far? We are dying from curiosity!

Re: HAKAI

I find 320’s quite easy to find used on eBay. There are no options unfortunately.

Re: HAKAI

Strong words Azazello Maybe my LP12 is tired (it's Lingo3/Ekos/Adikt), but I'm listening to a lot of music that for me has been reserved to vinyl only (70's stuff), and actually the reason that I bought a new LP12 a couple of years after selling my first one. Most of the time I feel it's better tha...

You mean in etcher? Etcher won't write to an HDD/SSD in safe mode, only to a flash memory. You will have to set it to unsafe mode :)

That might be because it needs to be left alone for a ridiculous amount of time during the "scanning" process. Initiate a new scan and just leave it alone for a couple of hours and see if that helps.

Re: HAKAI

I am following this thread with mixed feelings... Part of me cannot believe that this configured pc with rather cheap dac can outperform an ADS/3 and part of me wants to test it to find out myself. But It would lack space optimisation, wich is my saviour and hero in my livingroom with 50% windows.....

Re: HAKAI

Selling the ADS was a complete no-brainer. What I'm hesitating about is the LP12. I do think the HAKAI is quite a bit better so it's probably going.

Re: HAKAI

I will continue to search for an answer, by trying to use the HAKAI in another system. At the moment I feel that Volumio is not sufficiently featured or documented to be suitable for a non-technical user. An example of this: I entered all the LSNAS info manually, then got a popup message to say tha...

Re: HAKAI

Yes to all, it briefly found my laptop, then lost that too. ADS works fine. Since I didn't encounter this problem I haven't spent hours googeling it and swearing, so I'm afraid I cant help you. Just don't give up and sell it! Do you still have the NAS you used before the LSNAS? Maybe you should giv...

Re: HAKAI

I assume you have tried restarting everything, including the NAS, the router and the HAKAI?

Does it find any other units? Have you tried to play music from your computer?

Re: HAKAI

Thanks, Azazello, I have an (almost) working HAKAI! It boots and can be configured. I just need to get it to find the LSNAS across the network.... Great! Finding the NAS was quite straightforward for me! You need to leave HAKAI alone for quite some time while scanning the network. If you interrupt ...

Re: HAKAI

You will have to "mount" the Volumio image to the SSD, you can't just extract it. Etcher does work, but you have to put it in "unsafe" mode. Thanks! I didn't use etcher as it wouldn't let me select an internal drive, only USB. Is that correct, and could I solve this with a SATA-USB cable? You can m...

Usb stick then boots HAKAI, but I get lost trying to follow the volumio instructions. 2. Download volumio and extract image file to FA...

So far failed to make volumio work. Options: continue to knock head against wall; or pour large drink and listen to LP12. Option 2 chosen. Have you installed it at all? If you have another PC, I suggest you put the 320 in that (or the windows disc in HAKAI) and install Volumio from there. I spent h...

Re: HAKAI

Two things that needs to be clarified are: 1: The installation of the software is NOT straightforward if you are not familiar with Linux. I ended up installing a disc with Windows in my HAKAI and installed Volomio to the 320 from there. I recommend that you do this instead of the “dual memory stick”...

I've recently updated my ADS/1 to ADS/3 Katalyst which was a big upgrade. If/when HAKAI blows it into the weeds I won't know whether to laugh or cry..... I almost never listened to music anymore on my ADS/D, now I have music on almost all the time. For me it’s a fundamental shift. My wife is just a...

Re: HAKAI

Hi Fredrik, do you see any solution for those who do not want to go the NAS route but like streaming via Tidal and Qobuz? [...] Maybe the solution is that Volumio can act as an UPnP/DLNA renderer. So it accepts streaming from Audirvana which offers Tidal and Qobuz integration. Matt My HAKAI comes u...

If you stay as close as possible to the specification of the original Gigabyte GA-N3050N-D3H, there's a good chance you'll get good results. That is: Gigabyte, Ultra Durable series, integrated Celeron processor, passive cooling, mini-ITX format and ATX powered. Looking at this page: https://www.gig...

Re: HAKAI

You are asking the wrong questions :) I have built one, and sold my ADS/D that sounds like crap in comparison. I’m also mostly likely going to sell my LP12 (Lingo3/Ekos/Adikt/Slipsik) since I see no point in keeping it. I have not made the comparison, but I’d be very surprised if he latest KDS is th...
