Yep, with JRiver MC24.

 

My flirtation with Daphile was aurally very satisfying after I found how to use the memory playback, but actually using it was rather too infra-dig.

 

Within Snakeoil I've set JRiver MC24 to play from memory, but don't think it's doing it. Also hurtful to the dignity, but it sounds pretty damn good.

 

Need an instructor (or several thousand). Frustrating with a capital F!

 

I've had some really valuable/generous exchange with/from Agent Kith, and have huge respect for the incredible effort he's made for us all, and would really like to stay on board and be part of this living history.

I had Daphile for a long time and in my system it doesn't come close to the SQ from Snakeoil.  At the moment I am running Roon on the main home computer and using my Antipodes (converted to Snakeoil) system as the Server.  It does sound very good and it was very easy to implement.

 

I did look at Jriver and as my mother board is a very old 32 bit board I thought that path was fraught with too much angst for me.

 

I concur that Agent Kith is a legend and a great guy to deal with.  I hope that the users of the system do make donations to keep it going.

Snakeoil operating system is a new software for your music server that allows ...even the computer/linux illiterate (like me)...to easily switch between different players and kernels to find the combo

Well I'm still here, but blown away too.   Spot the difference:     Sounds fantastic, I think better than I could have hoped, and I expect will be better still, after a

Being a new convert to Snakeoil I thought I would post about what a great product it is. I am amazed that it is free and in my opinion it is worth every bit as much as JRiver or Audirvana.  Those prod

The Amanero is excellent for what it costs though has some coarse-ish limits in clocking accuracy (relative to a SOTA approach).

 

Hi Ric, thanks for helping out again.

 

If not "Sold On The Amanero", what does SOTA mean to you?

Hi Ric, thanks for helping out again.

I don't know that I'm helping mate :D 

 

In a perfect world the I2S stream is perfectly isolated into a buffer that's completely independent of anything upstream, and it's clocked out using perfect clocks, and the whole shebang is powered by PSUs completely independent of anything happening on their feed sides and with an infinite slew rate on the supply. And the DAC IC would be directly after the reclocked transport on a perfectly insulated line. 

 

Back in the real world :D 

  • Yes, Amanero and similar solutions have a buffer and external clocking though much is implemented on an FPGA that's also responsible for handling the USB interface.
  • There is no point putting 'ultimate' clocks on an Amanero or similar accordingly. 
  • Either you'd run to something that incorporates an independent buffer/clock out (some older boards used to do this) or you have a separate set of boards doing this downstream of the Amanero with independent clocks, PSU etc. Something like an IanCanada or Audial kit with as last-word clocks as you can afford. 

 

This is exactly what my DAC is being modded to by some rather nice people on this forum.

      SERVER RACK FOR HOME THEATRE 

      This 42RU 600mm (w) x 600mm (d) server rack has held my home theatre (I coudn't find any consumer cabinets that could support my equipment including massive monoblocks and pre-pros).

      It is in VGC except for dust. Has been in storage for past 2 years and now selling to make space.

      Similar to this ~$1200 4Cabling model (slightly updated aesthetics in the newer model) – https://www.4cabling.com.au/42ru-600mm-wide-x-600mm-deep-server-rack.html

      The high-quality freestanding server rack is supplied fully assembled with solid top and base, removable side panels, lockable tempered glass front door and solid steel side & back doors all lockable for added security. The new lockable side door design is created to get maximum flexibility with minimum footprint without sacrificing security.

      Applications other than home theatre include server room, DVR, security equipment, routers, patch panels, switches and rackmount equipment, telephone and PABX equipment, network and communications equipment; UPS equipment; professional audio equipment; and other 19” rack-mountable equipment applications.

      Cable access is through roof or base by removable gland plates. 4Cabling server racks such as this one are built around universal 19" standards, to deliver compatibility with leading vendors and OEM brands. It is very flexible and there are many after-market accessories to help house your equipment. And because it is built on a universal standard, it accepts very many home theatre and Hi-Fi equipment. 

      FEATURES & INCLUSIONS
      Supplied fully assembled Built from high-quality cold-rolled steel Rails, frame and doors, panels, shelves and cable management 2-way ceiling mount fan kit 6-way rack mount power rail Cage nuts 3 x fixed shelves 1 x *bonus* cantilever shelf (shown upright and not fixed in photos) Lockable tempered glass front door, solid lockable steel side and back doors Adjustable 19" L rails front and rear of server rack Levelling feet and lockable castor wheels Cable entry glands on the top and bottom Earthed doors and side panels
      This is a very heavy item (~100KG) so you must arrange for suitable transport when you pick it up.
       
      NB this is a very tall rack ~2m.

      Item: Antipodes DX G2  Black
      Location: Sunshine Coast QLD
      Price: $4,400
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: Not being used
      Extra info: It has a 2TB SDD containing around 91Gig of flac files.  Has switchable power inputs (115V or 230V)
      A review: https://www.hifi-advice.com/blog/review/digital-reviews/network-player-reviews/antipodes-dx-music-server/
       
      The only reason I'm listing this is I use a Bacch4Mac dsp and it only runs on Apple gear   https://www.theoretica.us/bacch4mac/ ......I eventually and reluctantly gave in.
       If I wasn't addicted to BACCH  I would NOT be listing this server.  It cost me just over $9K,  It's  coming up to 3 y/o.  I want to buy some other hi fi gear and the DX is not being used.    It has all the features mentioned in the antipodes review above except it has only usb out.  Mark Jenkins decided (at the time) to provide only what he considered the best output.  (earlier versions had AES/coax etc.)
      This is the best sounding server I have ever heard.  Mark Jenkins is the master at this stuff.   His approach to radically reducing electrical (and mechanical) noise without interfering with signal (achieved through not filtering) makes this one box server one of the best in the world.... and no spinning HDD's here, only separate SSD's.    
      This thing is so versatile yet so easy to use.  You don't need to be a level one computer programmer to use it.
      It rips CD's in paranoid mode before storing to the drive. If you don't want to use it as a ROON Core you can playback using Squeezbox Server...controlled from your iphone (eg. Ipeng) or the app: "Orange Squeeze" for your Android device).  USB ports at the rear of the DX enable easily backup your valuable files to an external drive of at a click of a button (see the apps tab in the review above.)
      Basically the DX is a fantastic sounding Server that's easy to use.  Its a fantastic way of keeping your CD's on file and transitioning to the world of streaming, where you can select any track at the touch of a button.
      I have Roon for life and love it but I should mention that selecting and setting up free to air (global) digital radio stations is FAR easier on the DX (via squeezbox) than it is on Roon! You can also have both
      No cat or dog hair, I'm not a smoker, was always used with power regulation (PS Audio P-10).  
      Feel free to pm (pers message) me if you want to ask specifics,  arrange a listen etc.

      Hey peeps,
       
      The official sources don't mention one way or the other whether Burson Audio's Conductor V2+ supports Linux (I'm running Ubuntu) as a source on the USB interface.
       
      Just wondering if anyone out there has these components in their setup and can chime in with any first hand experience.
       
      Thanks,
       
      DD04.
