Thanks for this info.
This may sound like a stupid question but how do I upgrade the firmware? I have an MS200, MC200, MD600 and ID41 card.
Cheers

Run Control:PC or Mac and you should see a prompt to advise the update is available. The update will update all relevant devices as long as they are connected and powered, note they can be in standby.

Any deeper insight?

1. IIRC issues with Mac losing connection under some circumstances - was this cured by app nap though or still an issue for some?

2. Bit perfect playback? Guess it would also be on Windows if this much anticipated update (to allow MQA out via local playback device) was done.

Here are the update notes in their entire form.


Sooloos SOFTWARE - VERSION 2.535

We are releasing a new version of software for Meridian Sooloos systems this week. Over the days following the release, users will receive a message on their systems via Control:10/15, Control:PC/Mac or TouchPC informing them that the new version is available. This release includes important maintenance changes and we advise all users to activate the update at a time convenient to them. Once successfully updated, the system will report the software version as “2.535” on its control interface.
 
This release includes the following updates: 

Fixed an issue causing MP3 formatted albums from TIDAL failing to play.

Improved local playback on Control:Mac.

Added the ability to fetch Radio Channel present in the Sooloos library via the Sooloos API.

Sooloos CONFIGURE - VERSION 33

We have also released a new version of software for the 218 Zone Controller. This includes the following updates:

Added ability to select a source after power-up in order to bring the system out of standby - configured via the webpage.

Fixed Automation Interface dropouts when using the IP Control App in conjunction with some WiFi routers. 

Please note: Any 218s used within Sooloos systems will receive this software update automatically as part of the main Sooloos software update. No additional procedures are required.
 
Any 218 which is not being used within a Sooloos system can be updated using the new version of Meridian Sooloos Configure program; version “v33”. Simply run the program on a PC connected to the same network as the 218 and the unit’s software will be updated automatically. In systems with more than one 218, all of them will be updated automatically as soon as the program sees them on the network. This update method applies to those units being used with Roon and those used as “stand-alone” controllers

Not positive that it is this update that fixed it, but the stuttering sound when playing HD files via Control:Mac is now gone. Smooth as silk now.

I installed the config v33 programme, it then seem to cycle the 218 and then rebooted, afterwards it seems to take longer to connect to the 218 via roon.

config says version: 1.0 build: 185 so has it actually updated it?

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.


Rgds,
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.

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.

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.
