Opus GUI v1.12.2 released!

Hi everyone, Yesterday night, I published Opus GUI v1.12.2: This release updates once again the Google Drive API. It also adds an option that can be changed by modifying the file called opus_gui.exe.config to specify the number of files that can be downloaded at a time when converting audio files from your Google Drive account. More information about this can be found here. As usual, you can download this release from GitHub by clicking here. Enjoy!

Opus GUI v1.12 released!

Opus GUI v1.12 released!

Hi everyone, Today, I have released Opus GUI v1.12: This new version adds support for Google Drive, allowing you to encode your music stored in your account. Encoded files are stored locally. When you press the Google Drive button for the first time, you’ll be redirected to a Quick Start guide where you only need to follow the Step 1. After that, download the file “credentials.json” and place it in the same folder where Opus GUI is located. You’ll need…

Fixing the Orange LED of the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

Fixing the Orange LED of the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

Hi everyone, I have found a solution for when my Tempotec iDSD Plus gets the Orange LED. The solution is fairly easy. I believe that something may not be making good contact with the printed circuit board and may be preventing the DAC from working. However, slightly pushing around the SmartAction SA2000 chip, it seems to make the LED change back to green and allow the unit to work. You can see the video below where you can see the…

The TRN BT20 2-pin 0.78mm IEM Bluetooth Adapter

Hi everyone, Today, I’ll be reviewing the TRN BT20 Bluetooth adapter for 2-pin In-Ear Monitors (IEM): The TRN BT20 is a Bluetooth 5.0 adapter that is available in 3 different versions: 2-pin 0.75mm 2-pin 0.78mm MMCX The version I purchased is the 2-pin 0.78mm for my KZ ZS7 IEM’s.

Opus GUI v1.10 released!

Opus GUI v1.10 released!

Hi everyone, Today, I released Opus GUI v1.10: This new version adds support for ffmpeg’s native Opus encoder. I also included the latest x64 release of opusenc. As to what ffmpeg encoder to use, I recommend sticking to ffmpeg libopus, as my own tests revealed some artifact issues using ffmpeg opus. A difference between these 2 is that libopus encodes using variable bitrate while ffmpeg opus encodes only with a constant bitrate. Since libopus use variable bitrate, it can allocate…

DJ Digs Main Street Electrical Parade

Hi everyone, On Thursday, I received the DJ Digs Main Street Electrical Parade Audio CD. This CD was released in 2003 and contains 8 remixes from Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade and it was released exclusively in Japan. The remixes included in this CD are really worthwhile. Once you listen to this, listening back to the original Main Street Electrical Parade track may be boring, and you’ll want to continuously listen to this CD. The track listing for this CD…

A week with the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

A week with the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

Hi everyone, It’s been actually more than a week with my new Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus, and my experience with this new unit has been very positive. First of all, I haven’t faced the Blue LED problem again. As I wrote in my teardown article, they changed some components inside that may prevent this problem from happening again, but it also seems to have introduced a problem where the unit main LED turns orange. This happens rarely, and the unit…

New Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus Teardown

New Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus Teardown

Hi everyone, Today, I decided to do a Teardown of the new Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus unit I received to compare the internal components to my previous Tempotec/Hidizs DAC. The unit is identical from the outside, so I did the same teardown process I did before for this new unit. The best way to open it is to use a sharp object to very careful try to detach the glass. To my surprise, this new unit wasn’t glued entirely. It…
