Switching your Sooloos Core off and on again sometimes helps.


Sooloos, Roon, G series (with LPS upgrade), 800 series (with LPS upgrade), HD621, AC200, Prime and PS, DSPs old and new.

Purdeys, Moke, Leica, 'Blad. Only the best.

From my brief testing:

1. I've never experienced this.

2. I can't get the MQA light to come on my Mac with ControlMac 535 playing dowloaded MQA content from an MD600. I've matched the MIDI settings to the bitdepth and -rate that ControlMac displays. The 2nd white light on the Explorer 2 comes on, but no blue light.

The GOOD NEWS is that ControlMac is playing anything to the local output without hiccups at all. Last time I asked M support about this they all but told me not to hold my breath for a fix.

Unless M have recently changed things you will not get MQA via Control:Mac or Control:PC as they are not native data players. They play something like an MP3 stream of the files on the store.

It was a surprise/disappointment that even when the Explorer v1 came out Sooloos was never improved/updated to give bit perfect from PC/MAC playback. A user had to use Foobar or other playback apps.

This is one of the (many) big changes users got with Roon... native / bit perfect playback from a PC/Mac.

Nick

That's not the case from my investigations. Control:Mac/PC play the PCM as expected, or at least, the data packet size matches raw PCM size, but Control:Web does indeed play compressed (MP3?) version. Not sure what happens with hi res though.

I don't have a Sooloos these days, so, I may not recall correctly.

Thanks dpstjp

Did as you suggested last night, rebooted core.
No instant notification, however this morning flashing green envelope was there.

Update completed successfully on all items including C15 MD600s Control Mac and Control:PC.

Happy Hector

I updated the day it showed up in Control:Mac. No issues but I have been 70 % using Roon with Sooloos only about 30% so I could be missing something.
