US SSD: Music Store suddenly turned into Music Share - can I switch back?

For some unknown reason my Music Store suddenly turned into a Music Share ...   My equipment is UnityServe SSD + Synology NAS and I have (had) one Music Store and a few Music Shares. There are almost 900 CDs stored in the Music Store.   I...

The only real problem I had was with the optical input switching off temporarily. That stopped with the new firmware. I use Spotify a lot on the Muso with various iDevices, often switching between them and have found the integration between the products to be very good and absolutely stable. I also actually use the Naim control app a lot more now and that also works effectively. Don't really use the radio but as far as I can tell that's fine also. Sounds like a problem with your specific unit.

Hi, Can you tell me whether you have contacted anyone here at Naim about this issue? It's not one that I remember having passed across my desk... Obviously we can only try to fix issues that we are aware about so if you can contact us on support@naimaudio.com (as per the sticky at the top of each forum) then maybe we can try to find out what the issue is... Cheers Phil Harris

Re: Superuniti - Signal Ground Switch

René4HiFi ·
I assume you have found my posting on this yesterday (?). I did not switch of the SU, just switching the know on the SU back was all to experience a very much better sound quality. Please note however, that my power socket does NOT have a grounding, so that might be of influence. In case your power socket has a grounding already, you maybe will not find any improvement. Good luck !

Re: Superuniti - Signal Ground Switch

Hi, Naim preamps are designed to have one and only one source grounded. So if your other sources are floating then switch the SU to ground, if however you have a grounded source, and Naim dedicated CD players are usually grounded for example then put the SU switch to float. You can change this setting whilst powered up. Simon

Yes I read the thread and decided to try the 'floating' position (no other inputs are used, mains socket does have an earth) to absolutely no discernable effect. Back to 'chassis' but the sound was lovely anyway!

Re: Superuniti - Signal Ground Switch

Adam Zielinski ·
Since you only have SU unity running, with nothing but speakers connected to it, the ground switch position should not make any difference if your power supply has a dedicated earth.

Re: Superuniti - Signal Ground Switch

Simon-in-Suffolk ·
Not quite, if no other inputs are attached, the then the unit will be designed for the ground switch set to chassis.. however what is designed and what is your personal preference may not always be the same. powesuplly ground and signal ground are not necessarily the same thing.

Superuniti - Signal Ground Switch

CSI_Basel ·
I read through an earlier thread on the Superuniti and how the changing the switch to floating made a big difference.  Mine has been set to Chassis since 3yrs. I have a SU connected to speakers and a US only.  All analogue inputs are switched off.  Reading through the manual it seemed to make sense to have it on Chassis. I switched it to Floating this morning, but it didn't seem to make a difference.... Also do you have to switch off the SU to change the switch position? What...

Re: US SSD: Music Store suddenly turned into Music Share - can I switch back?

MichaelSch ·
Just a quick follow up ... Had a conversation with Phil and in this particular case it would be safe to switch it back from share to a store. The reason being that it initially was a store which automatically demoted to a share (probably due to temporary network drop-outs) and NO changes were made to the store in the meantime. So the rule still applies - make NO MANUAL CHANGES to the store.

Correct Procedure for Switching on/off Power Amplifier (Bryston 4bsst2)

Swamy Ayyappa ·
Hi there, I am currently using a Bryston 4bsst2 Power Amplifier, my question is in regard to on/off procedure. I currently turn off and on my power amplifier via a powerboard switch, I do not turn on or off my amplifier using the switch on the amplifier but instead use my powerboard to turn on and off my amplifier. I was wondering whether or not by turning on/off via my power board is it damaging my amplifier as opposed to using the switch on the amplifier. Thanks

Re: Correct Procedure for Switching on/off Power Amplifier (Bryston 4bsst2)

Innocent Bystander ·
For a definitive answer I suggest asking Bryston directly. However, AFAIK switching off at the mains plug is doing no more than operating the rocker switch at the back of the amp, which when first turned on powers up the amp fully, without first going into the standby mode, and IIRC is a circuit breaker designed to power off the amplifier automatically in event of a fault. The only potential disadvantage is if leaving in standby mode between using might minimise any settling time after turn...

Assuming that you have other devices also connected the Powerboard, I would only switch on the 4BSST2 using the amps power switch.... the reason being is that when the 4BSST is switched on there is a peak of current as the amp starts up - through I know it is limited to some extent by the amps internal circuit logic - but nevertheless in my mind, its better to power up the other devices on your powerboard and then finally switch on the Bryston via it's own power switch.... If the other...

I ran a 4BST with a tube pre-amp for a few years. If the SST is like the ST in this regard - my advice is to make sure the Bryston is always switched on LAST. Any component that switches on with a spike will likely over extend your speakers if the amp is on. The ST switched on pretty fast, so in a power brown out, it the pre lags it - you have a situation! I suspect it was safest with a Bryston pre.

That is good advice for all systems - power amp on last, and off first.

Switching UnitiLite on and off

Unit is switched on at the mains socket and on at back. Should I leave it permanently switched on once set up or switch it on and off every time I use it. The unit is in a cabinet so if I do switch it off it would have to be at the mains ssocket switch is that OK.

Re: Switching UnitiLite on and off

ChrisSU ·
How hot is it? If you check the Status via the front panel display you can see the temperature, and as long as it's not going over 50 degrees C it should be OK. If it gets too hot, it will shut itself down automatically, so I wouldn't worry about it unless this happens repeatedly. Having said that, if it's in a closed cabinet, that's not ideal - it's best to give it some ventilation.

Ethernet switch failure - recommendations for a replacement?

Yetizone ·
My system is temporarily down this weekend due to the failure of my eleven month old Netgear Prosafe FS105 ethernet switch. I went to access the UnitiQute this morning and the app could not find the room. Disappointing given the age of the switch, but these things happen. Are these units generally reliable? I thought they were, so I'm assuming I've been unlucky and just got a duff unit. Happy to stick with Netgear, although, if the experienced think they can bettered (perhaps the Cisco in...

Thanks Antony. I have the Netgear FS105 that's just failed - whats the difference between the FS105 to the GS105? EDIT: Just found out, for anyone else needing the info. The GS105 is a gigabit switch and the FS105 is not.

I'm surprised to see you have an FS105, strange thing to buy (FS = Fast) when the GS (GS = Gigabit) is available. Whatever, even stranger thats its failed, I think they have a lifetime warranty, if you can be bothered to chase that down with whoever you purchased it from. I've recently consigned my old (very old) FS108 on my study branch to the recycle process & replaced it with my 2 year old GS105 that was on the audio branch. I now have a Cisco SG110D-05 on audio between NAS-NDX-WiHub,...

Re: Ethernet switch failure - recommendations for a replacement?

Thanks, Mike. I think, the FS105 was purchased just before I'd begun the streaming adventure with the 'Qute and then found out more on forum (steep but valuable learning curve). I'll check out the Cisco in your thread (thanks for the link) and then order one or the other - £40 is nothing in the grand scheme of tinkering with this kit! Actually, I'm quite looking forward to experimenting later this afternoon with the Uniti and testing out the Wi-Fi signal.

I wouldn't say its mid point Yeti, far from it. Its an unmanaged switch thats just got a little more inside than the Netgears. Next come smart switches (semi intelligent & partially managed) then fully managed & these go up to all sorts of stuff that include the Cisco Catalysts that HH (& others) use.

Mike, Ah ok, so a slight step up over the Netgear GS105 as opposed to being closer in spec to the bigger Cisco 2960. I have to admit that I’m leaning towards the Cisco Gigabit SG110D-05. HungryHalibut, that’s a very good price compared to the average that seems currently representative on the well known auction site.

Wi-Fi and UPnP… Last night a few albums were streamed via Wi-Fi (for the first time). All of the 16/44 CD rips and the 24/48 & 24/96 high res albums I tried, played without a hitch. Impressive. Certainly bodes well for extending the music network to the rest of the house via Muso boxes etc - always the loose plan if this first attempt at streaming proved stable with the 'Qute2. It was only with the 24/192 albums the stream (predictably) faltered, the album unlistenable due the signal...

The new 8 port Cisco switch is to act as the central hub after the BT router, freeing it of cable spaghetti so that I can then relocate the router to a more central household position.

I know I can practically see it fossilising in front of me! But in its defence, it was one of the last G5 2.5 Quad cores, back when Apple knew how to make serviceable Pro machines - and before idevices became their primary focus (or so it seems). Its been a solid workhorse, plus a heater in the winter too! Overhauled two years ago with an OWC SSD & extra RAM which speeded up the old timer no end. When the G5 eventually pops I’ll happily replace it with a MacBook Pro, or whatever's current.
