  1. Is that the newest Apple TV 4K model with an Atmos receiver? So far in my listening, to really get the best experience with Apple's new Spatial Audio, you need an Atmos receiver. And the newest ATV 4K.
  2. Hi KRSDarwin, how did you go in the end? And what was the issue with the 4520?
  3. HQP OS is really good. If you don't need GPU (CUDA offloading) it's probably the best way to use HQPlayer in a speaker listening room. Headless operation, so you can configure with tablet/phone web browser. Don't need a keyboard/monitor/mouse inside the listening room. For desktop listening (nearfield speakers and headphones) at a PC I prefer HQP Desktop because I can pipe many desktop apps audio through HQP. Plus I'm already using a screen/keyboard/mouse there already
  4. I have both Desktop and HQP OS, v4 for both I have setup Roon+HQP Embedded on same machine before (Ubuntu Server) and on seperate also (Roon ROCK + HQP OS) Can you share screenshots of your HQP settings here? .
  5. I see it's available on Apple Music in Atmos. Haven't checked Tidal yet.
  6. I just posted this in another thread but makes sense to post here too - regarding albums missings in Qobuz that you can play in Tidal/Spotify/Apple Music. I used this form (Qobuz Support sent me this link) to request 3 missing albums (that are there on Tidal). http://qob.uz/request And 3 months later they are now there for me. So they are listening and actively trying to fill the gaps. Make sure you fill the form carefully - share a proper link to the Tidal/Spotify/Apple Music page. Get the artist name, album title, record label correct. It makes
  7. I used this form (Qobuz Support sent me this link) to request 3 missing albums (that are there on Tidal). http://qob.uz/request And 3 months later they are now there for me. So they are listening and actively trying to fill the gaps. Make sure you fill the form carefully - share a proper link to the Tidal/Spotify/Apple Music page. Get the artist name, album title, record label correct. It makes it easier for the Qobuz staff to get it right. The record label is shown on the album page of all the apps. Hope that helps
  8. Even though that's PC Mag Australia, all the pricing is US dollars. The author of the article is New York based. HD isn't available here in Oz yet.
  9. Hi, I use HQPlayer for DSP crossover and room correction. I use Roon for the music playback and HQPlayer does all the DSP. I use Audiolense XO to generate the wav correction files (DSP crossover and room correction) for importing into HQPlayer. Happy to help where I can if you need help with getting into HQPlayer. I haven't used REW for a long time though, since Audiolense does it all. Incredible room and gear you have there.
  10. Laptop running on battery in that test? Sounds like a classic ground loop then. Especially if laptop and phone (both on battery, so there's no ground loop path) is hum/buzz free
  11. Let us know the results if you do borrow the Focusrite. If it's a ground loop, there's a good chance balanced connections will sort it.
  12. Ah yeh, 'native' DSD (as opposed to DoP) support needs the manufacturer to have remote interest in DSD in the first place, so they can test it. Or at least have enough customers pushing them test/patch Linux support and/or ASIO Win10 support. Over the years some manufacturers have lifted their game, due to customer demand. iFi Audio is one example that test and support it. It's still quite niche overall so it depends on the manufacturer. I contacted one very popular manufacturer about DSD rates and they told me they've never tested in development.
  13. I use HQPlayer for on the fly upsampling. Plus it also handles my speaker DSP crossover and room correction (convolution). You can do a free trial. The only limitation is playback stops every 30 minutes but other than that, fully featured. Link: https://www.signalyst.com/consumer.html Got down to the bottom to find your OS version There's many ways to use it (Roon, virtual audio driver input etc) but you can just drag your albums into the bottom window). If you do try it, make sure you set MAX volume to -3dBFS (mi
  14. Do you have any chance to borrow a DAC which has balanced (XLR or TRS) outputs that run to your KRKs? Instead of using RCA Something like the below. If there's a store near you that could loan a unit, if you explained your issue. https://djcity.com.au/product/focusrite-scarlett-solo-3rd-gen-usb-audio-interface/
