Lot of barbs thrown for someone spending 💰💰💰on gear. He obviously has no trouble putting dinner on the table so who cares, this type of gear is nothing new for A1. More power to him. I paid approx twice this for a new Mustang GT. His server has better build quality then Ford — 

 

It's less a barb at Rodney and moreseo at the purveyors of such equipment. I'm no longer surprised by the ear candy he posts for (eventual) sale. :)

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion . These higher end servers are more than just tossing some parts in a case . People buy the Aurender W20 that retails at 22k and this server is a giant step above it .

I got the child thrill of  ----

OK , Sunday, when the granddaughter was here, I was showing her some flower buds. Telling her that when she cam Friday they would be open. We had an impromptu visit Wednesday. They were just starting to split into individual flower buds.

as soon as she got here. She ran to see.

 

"PaBill, PaBill my pink flowers are in the sun room!!!"

It does look cool... But I was surprised to see it was 'just' a music server.

@A1UC

That machine must use some juice.

Heat sinks and pipes running off of it like an overclocked graphics card!

Looks well built!

Man, I'm trying. This thread has prompted me to build out a new VM on my vmware host with a fresh windows 10 install. Lots of cores and ram have been allocated and I've installed only the roon server and a trial of hqplayer. Roon will output to HQP and HQP will output to my little raspberry pi running the HQP network endpoint protocol, which is then output over digital coax spdif. I'm assuming there will be a difference since HQP is a new component in the signal chain, but it's also they only reason for the additional compute resources vs a standard low-spec Roon server that's serving up bitstream audio.

 

To be fair, my server is big and noisy and there's no way I'd ever stick it inside my house, let alone the listening room. So there's a great deal of effort and cost that goes into making dual Xeon's, a bunch of memory, and NVME pci storage run cool (assuming it's not simultaneously underclocked to reduce heat). But I think I can achieve some semblance of similarity with my equipment. If it's that substantial of a difference, I'll scrap the whole virtualization stack and run everything bare metal, allocating all 24 cores and 128GB of memory, along with GPU CUDA processing for HQP.

lol believe me I thought over and over asking myself what are you doing , I could build another garage for the price of this server or buy another hellcat for price of speakers . I got sucked into this hobby bad it’s the worst addiction to date .

What did I get today? A pack of toilet paper. It's party time.
