I can't decide if this is a good time to acquire an ID41 card or not. Anyone hear of any up coming revisions etc?

Any updates on firmware updating without a Sooloos core?

Thanks for any input

If you already have an ID40 in your 861 then the gains to be had with an ID41 are not huge so I would stick until the MQA updates come out, assuming that is in our lifetimes!

Waiting, not so patiently.

Thanks Russ. I have nothing at present.

IIRC the consensus is that any MQA update would firmware-based as opposed to a hardware revision. Is that still the current consensus view?

I would be very surprised if it was just firmware. Whether it impacts an ID4x card or not is a bit of an unknown.

IMHO I think the ID4x cards in an 8xx are quite stunning. So, if you did find one now at a good price I would jump on it anyway. Not likely to lose much on 2nd hand values if you did sell on later for an MQA card or cards.


Rgds,
Nick

I'm coming to that conclusion so I think I'll jump in. I can't see there being much in the way of MQA content for quite some time.

IMMSMW in discussions with M representative initial statement re MQA was that two new (output related cards) for 808/818 were expected with ID41 (input card) staying as is.

Of course I could be wrong.

LPS, if not already installed IMHO is also essential.

The situation in the 861 could be different due to the rumoured atmos or similar processing?

Cheers

Hector,

Thanks, that pretty much the dealer feedback I received - the ID41 card unchanged in the new 818v3

Hi Russ

Understood, that is why 861 is not mentioned in my previous post. I live in 861v4 Cul-de-Sac.

Well, I acquired an ID41 card and am really enjoying the Roon iPad app (and the SQ of course).


The only issue I have encountered is that when my PC Server (Win 10) wakes after sleep, Roon Server is no longer functional. I can connect but it won't stream. I had to create a task to kill\restart RoonServer when the PC resumes from sleep. It works perfectly but it was pain to have jump through these hoops to get it work. No such issues with LMS!

Please report that in the Roon forum here. This forum is strictly for discussion of the interplay between Roon and Meridian's endpoints.

Glad it's otherwise working!
