Are there separate MTU on the LAN side (from the router to my home devices) and on the WAN side (back to ISP)?
Edi:. SteveZ's response seems to suggest there is only 1 mtu setting and the network side dictates what can be done locally without fragmentation.
Must the router and local device have the same value, or us there a negotiation to find a common best value? Does a switch (e.g. the taiko switch) puts its own value for mtu into the mix or does the switch simply pass through the exact packet sizes that the router and local client choose to...
I totally agree with all of your points, but as someone who listens to live music recordings a lot, the gap of silence between tracks is a major buzzkill. That said, I'll slog through until taiko replaces TAS.
Good observations, but if I were betting, a best in class flow control strategy is the big advantage that the taiko switch will provide, with taiko in control of both ends of the data flow into the extreme.
It's just an (educated?) guess on my part at this point. We are all learning here...
I can think of another possible mechanism here.
Network traffic, even if not seen at the extreme's input, can potentially impact SQ. If the other network traffic impacts the burstiness of the data into the extreme, it may impact sound quality, for example if it changes buffering...
i forgot that, so let me reformat my question.
will the new TAS android app be in the google play store or will we have to sideload AAB files manually (as we do today with APK files)?
(short term and long term questions)
i ask because it looks like sideloading AAB will not be as simple as for...
It looks like I need to go back to daily check in here :)
I love the SQ reports on testing with stored files and I am fully copacetic with streaming as a second priority.
In fact, a release with the improved SQ for stored files and only(!) the current SQ for streaming would be fabulous as a...
I see a 3 second default value for the "radio station buffer". Does this impact streaming services like qobuz as well?
If this impacts streaming SQ, I'd imagine it (or something equivalent) will be kept in the TAS release.
I hope you'll consider releasing the "simple but functional" version as a beta1, perhaps to a smaller group of testers initially (perhaps a group that minimizes the short term support demands on the developers) while you work on prettier graphics, more streaming interfaces, search, etc.
Gapless has been sighted!
This should have been in bolded large font.
That's all I needed to hear (though you tortured me by making me read through a lot of much less important - to me - other update data).
You buried the lede!!!
