Peter, am I right to assume that we can install more than one XXHighEnd software without having to pay for a second licence ?

Correct, Alain.
And thinking Tidal, one even *has* to install XXHighEnd on that Music Server PC (so all can be done / Prepared there, instead of on the Audio PC, where you wouldn't like an Internet connection in the first place.

Peter

Hi Alain,

The noise I have comes mostly from the power supply in the Music Server but I have in some place another one less noise, on the other hand I could place the Music Server in other room with a longer Ethernet cable. About your idea of Minimize using XXHE in the Music Server to make it less noisy I donīt know if this would cut other processes needed by the Remote Desktop.

Regards,
Juan

Hi Juan,

Can you express more details about the noise(s) that your server makes ? This may help to find a solution, even if getting a silent computer could solve the problem...

I don't know if this would be of some help, but if you install XXHighEnd on the server also - just to use its Minimize OS capability, maybe the server will also be less noisy ? It normally allows to reduce the CPU clock speed and turns down a lot of processes and services, so it should require less ventilation ?

Peter, am I right to assume that we can install more than one XXHighEnd software without having to pay for a second licence ?

Well, that you should have a stable system. Stable-wrong or stable-right. But not at the will of God

Peter, you mentioned the paragraph above referring to what boleary said on plugging and unplugging the USB drives and/or other components. Doing it creates electronic imbalances that affect the sound.  http://www.phasure.com/index.php?topic=3453.msg37458#msg37458

This is now my system configuration:

Dock with 2 music drives (2Tb each) > USB 3.0 cable > Music PC (W10) used exclusively  to manage the Remote Desktop > Ethernet Gigabyte cable > Switch > Ethernet Gigabyte cable > Audio Pc with the Ram-disk.

The idea behind the Ram-disk is to keep the Audio Pc as "clean" as possible to get better sound. I wonder if removing the Ram-disk once it is loaded into memory can produce also some kind of instability in the system. In any case, is there a sequence or an exact moment to pull the Ram-disk? And also, once the Ram-disk is out, could shut down the Music Pc? Could this also alter the stability of the system?

Regards,
Juan



Iīm not talking about unplugging here, the reference to the boleary post was based only in the electronic instability that could produce the pull of the ramdisk, although I guess that there is none. On the other hand to turn off of the Music Pc is mostly based in the noise it produces in my room. Although it has some inconveniences because once you charge a list of music you canīt do anything if you have no active the Remote desktop. Well, this is probably not a good idea and the solution is to find a quieter Music Pc.

Hi Juan,

Although maybe over a year we think differently (because someone found out), I think at this moment it does not matter when we take out the RAM-OS Disk. That is, there is no sequence whatsoever - we take it out or not.

This relates somewhat to the Music Server PC shutting off or not. I'd say Not, already because it is too inconvenient. But YMMV because I have the Music Server PC on another mains earth ring, so I don't care much as long as I don't connect anything of it to the Audio mains earth ring. And, ethernet (from Audio PC to Music Server PC) is inherently isolated, so ...
But anyway, shutting down your music server ... No. Each time boot it when I am fed up with the album playing and I want to choose another ?
No.

Regards,
Peter

Hi Arjan,

Well, nice (not); so those linear PSU's are so good that they actually don't work ?
Better wonder what you are doing this for !

Peter

Peter, I could finally set my system up correctly. It is definitely the best sound so far. Congratulations once again.
