If it's anything like the Linux software used in the JRiver ID player, it won't be user friendly.

 

I would agree that J-river on linux is not as user friendly as  windows or mac versions.

Thanks Tasso - I know you have been using a custom Linux build for a while, and am sure you wouldn't have been unless it offered significant benefit.

 

It is great that this sw is available to others now. Wonderful initiative.

 

Cheers

@@joelha  i just got this message -

 

For now the BBS is closed as I'm trying to keep the traffic to a minimum. There are no content at the moment. When I have more time in the future I'd find a fair priced hosting company and make registration open.

 

@@Tasso many thanks for this i'm looking fwd to trying it out soon. just wondering how best to implement. i have the jetway board so could put the OS onto the cfast drive and music onto ssd as i had with daphile. i couldn't get vortexbox to do that. is that what you would recommend tasso?

You can still download and install and use the software however. I would guess that registration issues will be sorted out soon

I installed mine onto CFast card and music on separate SSD. Snakeoil can be installed via a bootable USB but for some reason not all USB sticks worked with my mobo ( could be a bios thing). But I ended up using a basic 2 gb drive and it worked

Meaning?

No meaning, just a reflection of the product name.

With a name like that they have to expect a little dig.

A bit like Schiit that sell PYST cables ;)

I just cant help smiling every time I see the name, good to see someone with a sense of humour !

My thanks also to the people behind this project, although I am not a linux user at this stage I am following this and related topics with interest.

It looks like Agent Kith has been overwhelmed.

 

The website links don't work and my download of the iso hangs and won't finish.

      Item: DIGIBIT ARIA PICCOLO
      Location: Sydney - can post or courier in original box
      Price: SOLD elsewhere unfortunately
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: nlr
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, EFT or COD.
      Extra Info: HIGH END HD MUSIC SERVER  -The Piccolo makes listening to digital music easy and pleasurable with a simple control and the ability to look up info on what you are playing and the artist bio on the control app.
      It can be used as a player connected to your DAC/amp and as a DLNA server on your network for your other players so it will stream to different zones across your home simultaneously with different music in each zone.
      It comes with an external CD drive to automatically rip and metadata your CDs.  I ripped my entire collection with this and it was very easy to do (aka painless): you just put in the CD and it rips it automatically when you close the drive and when finished you eject the CD and then insert the next one and keep repeating. It automatically sets the tags.
      It includes an iAria Ipad and iAria Android app for control (you can even edit the tags with the Ipad app).
      It has USB, optical and SPDIF outputs and WiFI and ethernet connections. Onboard It is a fanless low energy server which you can leave on 24/7 with hardware specifically built for Digibit for high end audio. Will do high res and DSD. The case is machined aluminium and the unit weighs 3kg.
      It is very simple to use and you do not need a degree in computer science. Basically plug and play. No need to read over manuals to learn new software (though you can get into the software and change things).
      Support from Digibit is excellent - they log in to the machine if anything needs changing eg different USB driver for your DAC.
      This model has a 2TB HDD and no dac. There is a small nick on the front right side and slight scuff on left corner - see pics.

      Item:                    Sonore DLNA Music Server- Plays your Flac, Wav and all digital files 
      Location:             Melbourne
      Price:                   $500
      Item Condition:      Used
      Reason for selling:     Streaming music now 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
       
      Music server
       
      The digital output from this server sounds amazing and it plays most file formats, flac, wav etc..
       
      This is based on the audio server that Sonore / Green Computer used to sell before the rendu series of products took off and is similar to Vortexboxes sold here in Australia in so much that it uses the same software platform.
       
      This was custom built for me by Jesus Rodriguez (the main tech guy and founder of Sonore).  He helped select the design options and built the server for me. I chose not to include a ripper so the server is dedicated to music playback – just load your files and play…!!
       
      The server has not had much use as I have been streaming all my music with Tidal and before that it was installed in a second system that only had occasional use.
       
      It has an intel processor running Linux (massively heat-sinked so no fan is needed) and the server is pretty much silent in operation) and has a high quality external power supply.
       
      The Operating System is on a solid state disk and I had the server configured with 4TB of western digital disk (my music is still loaded). You can attach a hard disk via USB for back-up purposes as well
       
      The output interface is a specialised studio quality output card that was used in Sonore severs at the time. 
       
      The unit is provided with a custom Cardas cable (originally over $300 usd) that was made specifically for these units and provides an XLR - AES / EBU connection to your DAC.
       
      You can use your favourite app or the web interface to the server to view, play and manage your music collection.  Any number of renderers can serve up your music and the server has software such as Vortex box and squeezebox, alreadyloaded etc..  I used squeezebox which works really well. 
       
      Happy to demo the unit but its pretty straight forward to use for those familiar with servers / and their associated software renderers such as squeezebox, MPAD, etc.

      Item: Aurender X100L
      Location: Sydney
      Price: sold
      Item Condition: 9/10 
      Reason for selling: No longer used 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
       
      Purchased directly from hyper in July 2015, (12TB version currently retailing HERE for over $6K). Original for sale thread can be accessed via this LINK
       
      I purchased two Aurender server's in July 2015 for the two systems I run: the X100L listed for sale here, and the N100H listed for sale in a separate thread. The N100H comes with a 128GB SSD & 2TB of extra HDD storage, along with a linear power supply compared to the X100L's switch mode power supply & 6TB of storage.
       
      Some of the highlights of this unit include the aforementioned responsive and thorough support accessible by emailing the Aurender Team based out of Korea. The outstanding hardware implementation which you can read more about via the link above, and lastly the Aurender Media Manager (AMM) software, which if you prefer to access your music collection by browsing through a folder structure as opposed to tiles/album art, potentially goes toe to toe with Roon by way of user experience.

      Price: Sold

      Reason for selling: No longer used 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
       
      Purchased directly from Cam at Kirspy Audio in July 2015 for over $4K (currently retailing HERE for $4,299). 
       
      I purchased two Aurender server's in July 2015 for the two systems I run: the N100H listed for sale here, and the X100L that will be listed for sale in a separate thread. The N100H comes with a 128GB SSD & 2TB of extra HDD storage, along with a linear power supply compared to the X100L's switch mode power supply.
       
      This particular N100H was in my main system and performed faultlessly for the close to a year and a half I ran it. In the spirit of full disclosure 2 months ago upon starting the unit up the usual cycle of start-up screens didn't take place as normal. Instead, the unit would simply light up (display a bank of pixels) without displaying any information. I contacted Aurender's support team via email and within 24 hours they'd fixed what ever was wrong remotely and the unit is now fully functional again. 
       
      I'll offer an additional 6 month personal warranty on this component where should it not work as described I'll offer a full refund to the buyer of the unit.
