Upgrade cost to SDP-1000EX from sDP-1000

Greetings. 

 

This information is about the cost and process to upgrade sDP-1000 to sDP-1000EX.

 

Why this upgrade is recommended and should be done? 

Because the following main improvement can be made from the sDP-1000 to sDP-1000EX.

 

  • Support to DSDx 128 and DXD.
  • By improving the balance in all bandwidth, specially the mid-low frequency bandwidth have been better played.
  • By keeping the high resolutions in playback, it could play music with deeper textures, so sound quality becomes more natural but very dynamics than before.
  • Redesign the battery for the remote newly, so normal coin battery can be used.
  • DC power can be used without the battery power.

 When used with the sPS-500, a high-performance audio DC power source, it could provide much stable and high-quality sound. With increasing in resolutions specially, it produces rich and high-quality sound that makes you feel like you are using several other high performance devices in the system.

 For reference, if you want to operate the sDP-1000EX without using the battery power, please power off all connected devices and disconnect all cables. And disconnect the internal battery connection cable. (You can find the battery replacement section at the bottom side of the product to disconnect the internal battery connection able). Wait around 30 seconds after disconnecting internal battery power connection, then connect the DC power cable back to the sDP-1000EX, and power on the power source. And turn on the power by pressing the power switch on the back of the sDP-1000EX.

 In addition, if sCLK-EX with the master clock input is installed to the sDP-1000EX to be able to have 10MHz mater clock input signal, you can easily reach to the higher level sound quality. By synchronizing 10Mhz master clock signal, the sound level would become much natural and beautiful besides rough and dry sound which have pointed out as a disadvantage of digital audio equipment.

 The upgrade cost to the sDP-1000EX is USD700, and if you want to install the master clock input to the sDP-1000EX, USD1050 is extra cost.

 You can ask the detials about this upgrade to your local dealer,  the dealer where you bought, or us directly.

 More details will be informed by circumstances.

 

The upgrade would take around 1 or max.2 weeks to be completed including the delivery time. 

You can purchase the sDP-1000EX directly on our online shopping mall too.

 

Thank you.

Updated Eunhasu F/W to ver no.4.6

Greetings !

The Eunhasu firmware version number is updated to 0.4.6.

 

Version : V0.4.6
– Date : 17-06-2019
– Added Ethernet auto negotiation selection feature
– Added a new feature that prevent installing and uninstalling the apps if Eunhasu server is not ready
– Upgraded ROON Ready to the version no. 1.1.36
– Upgraded Squeezelite to the version no. 1.9.0.1157
– Upgraded Logitech Media Server to the version no. 7.9.2-git1559745322
– Improved the upgrade system
– Enabled read and write feature on external USB disks via network share folder

 

In this update, please apply the following request manually to Squeezelite and Logitech Media Server .

– Go to Logitech media server -> settings -> Plugins 

– Go to Active plugins, and uncheck DSDPlayer(v1.0) or PlayDSD(v0.5) 
– Go to Additional Repositories, and remove this line, “http://unregimenteddrums2.000webhostapp.com/repo.xml” 

– Click Apply button and restart Logitech Media Server.

About the new function called “Ethernet Auto negotiation”, it is automatically determined the connection speed and method with the connected device (eg router) when the Ethernet is first connected. When Link Speed is set to 100BASE-T (100Mbps) and Auto negotiation is turned off, it is unconditionally connected to 100BASE-T (100Mbps).If Auto negotiation is set to on and the connected device (eg router) supports 1000BASE-T (1Gbps), the Auto negotiation function will automatically establish a 1000BASE-T (1Gbps) connection.

These are some example settings, 

SOtM device Link Speed [Auto nego on/off] | Router device Link Speed | Final link speed
100BASE-T(100Mbps) [auto nego on] | 100BASE-T(100Mbps) | 100BASE-T(100Mbps)
100BASE-T(100Mbps) [auto nego off] | 100BASE-T(100Mbps) | 100BASE-T(100Mbps)
100BASE-T(100Mbps) [auto nego on] | 1000BASE-T(1Gbps) | 1000BASE-T(1Gbps)
100BASE-T(100Mbps) [auto nego off] | 1000BASE-T(1Gbps) |
1000BASE-T(1Gbps) [auto nego on] | 100BASE-T(100Mbps) | 100BASE-T(100Mbps)
1000BASE-T(1Gbps) [auto nego off] | 100BASE-T(100Mbps) |
1000BASE-T(1Gbps) [auto nego on] | 1000BASE-T(1Gbps) | 1000BASE-T(1Gbps)
1000BASE-T(1Gbps) [auto nego off] | 1000BASE-T(1Gbps) | 1000BASE-T(1Gbps)

Be noted that most routers support Auto negotiation by default, but some routers can change the link speed of each Ethernet port to 100BASE-T (100Mbps) or 1000BASE-T (1Gbps) forcibly. For more information, please refer to the manual of the router which you are using.

In this firmware update, the kernel update is not combined, so you should make the kernel update separately if you need. 

The Eunhasu firmware will be kept updated. Please email us if you have any opinion to make it improved. 

Thank you.

About Qobuz 192Khz playback issue in Roon server

 Greetings.

 We are sorry to inform you that when using Roon Server feature on sMS-1000SQ, we found an issue when playing 192KHz and 176.4KHz Qobuz streaming, and also there are random dropouts when playing 96Khz and 88.2 Khz Qobuz steaming. Only 48Khz and 44.1Khz Qobuz streaming in Roon server of sMS-1000SQ are flawless.

 We’ve tried to fix the issue, but this is out of our ability to be handled without cooperations with other partners, so we had to leave this issue unsolved.

 We apology for the situation, but if there is any chance that we are able to fix it, we will keep you updated the news.

 Thank you.

 

 

 

 

 

About Link speed on Eunhasu web gui

 Greetings.

 

 There is a “Link Speed” selection button on System config page of Eunhasu web gui.

 This button is about to improve sound quality at 100Mbps Ethernet speed, but the 100Mbps selection is only working with Roon, LMS and MPD feature at this moment.

 We are trying to make the other features also possibly work in 100Mbps, but currently they are not supportive.

 

 If there is any update on this subject, we will keep you updated.

 Thank you!

Eunhasu FW version no.4.59 is released

Greetings !

The Eunhasu Firmware version number 4.59 is now available.

 

Version : V0.4.59
– Date : 27-3-2019
– Fixed up the system upgrade time out error
– Fixed up the kernel check time out error
– Fixed the link speed setting bug
– Improved some special character USB ID recognize bug

 

In this update, we’ve tried to speed up the operation mainly, and fixed the reboot issue and solved some USB device were not recognized correctly.

Also we tested when setting network speed to 100BASE-T, there was certain sound improvement compared to when setting network speed to 1000 BASE-T, so we’ve added a function to be selected the network speed between 100Base-T and 1000Base-T  and it is to make the better sound quality according to the system and network environment. But when upgrading the system or installing or uninstalling the player app, the 100BASE-T network speed are not  enough and it could bring malfunction with 100BASE-T speed. So when upgrading the system or installing or uninstalling the player apps, please change the network speed to 1000BASE-T. And the Librespot and HQplayer NAA should be uninstalled first and then install it again to have the latest version.

 

The firmware would be kept updating for the better quality of SOtM products, please keep us reported if you find any inconvenience while using it.

 

Kernal update is required on V0.4.59 seperately!

 

<UPDATE : If an error occurs while upgrading the firmware>

 If an error occurs while upgrading the firmware, stop all audio apps and copy &paste the url below on the web browser. 

http://<your Eunhasu ip address>/exec.php?cmd=sudo echo -e “\nTimeout 3600\nProxyTimeout 3600” >> /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf; sudo reboot now;

 If you woudl try to type the url above, there is a possibility that you make typo, so please copy and paste of the url and change <your Eunhasu ip address> to your actual Eunhasu device’s IP address and press an enter key. 

 Once the connection is well made with the url, there would be “Service Unavailable” message up on the screen and then, Eunhasu will reboot automatically. 

 The upgrade could take a while(around more than 10 mins) after rebooting Eunhasu. The upgrade windows will be shown up and the upgrade process is going to be run normally. 

 If you would have an issue with upgrading the firmware, please request it to the seller.

Thank you.
