Torres Final on DirectStream dac


#1

Hi Gentlemen,

After installing Torres Final (which is great btw) on my DirectStream dac, I noticed something which may be a bug. Apologies if this has been discussed already. If I press the ‘dim’ key on the remote, the display correctly dims. To return to the display I pressed ‘On’. The display returns but the music (using jriver playing files from a synology nas) pauses. On pressing the ‘On’ key again, the music continues to play. I hadn’t experienced this with Yale. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Michael and welcome to the forum. I am surprised that you have not gotten any response to this post. The forum has been busy recently, but that is poor excuse.

It sounds like you have run across a legitimate bug. This sounds familiar and may have been mentioned here before, but I am not sure. Unfortunately I am not able to offer confirmation or any more information as I do not have a DirectStream DAC.

J.P.

I play music from a Synology NAS to a DS DAC via the Bridge, with Torreys installed on the DS. I have not had the problem you describe. I use MinimServer rather than JRiver, which makes me think it may be an issue of the interaction between JRiver and Torreys. There are a number of JRiver users here; maybe some of them can confirm this.

Same thing happened when I tried it with JRMC 22 running on a Mac mini. Except a couple times hitting “on” again did not restart the sound. Hitting play on JRemote did. The difference seemed to be that in the former cases the music continued to play (but with no sound) whereas in the latter it stopped, at least according to JRemote.

Nice catch. And welcome to the forum!

Maybe there should be a ds jr thread started, just got one loved it with yale updated to torrey love it more, watched Teds you tube about the tech what a education in digital play back, have a dmp on order looking forward to hearing my 2k cd’s again, question to Ted and Paul since the passive output on the Sr was so touted what do we loose on the Jr with the video amplifier output stage, also is the power supply for the dac support equal

The Jr isn't quite as revealing as the Sr. How much of that is due to each difference between them is hard to say. The Jr was designed to be good, but at a lower cost than the Sr and hence with somewhat less sound quality. The opamps (tho not cheap) cost less than the output transformers but still have good common mode noise rejection.

Same story, there's a little less power supply filtering in the Jr: For example we use some prebuilt regulators in the Jr where the Sr uses discrete customized implementations of most regulators. Still the power supplies in both are overkill for both the analog outputs and the digital sections.
