        Huh. I’ve been using Roon Core on an HP MP9 since 2018 with headless the Ubuntu LTS most-current version and not a single crash on the core in over four years. This seems to be common with Roon Rock though. You may get better reliability if you just install Linux and then core on top.

        But… I feel like the only one who’s never had your issue, so :shrug:

        I’m running my core on my Arch Linux desktop computer, so it’s not even on its own. It’s only been a year, but I never had problems, either. With the remotes, yes, and even with the bridge on my Pi4, but never with the core. So, yes, running your own Linux might help.
        OTOH, Arch’s frequent kernel updates also mean frequent reboots which might help at not letting the core get into an unfortunate state.

      Jason is trolling us re: Folkvangr is not good for IEMs. MEST Mk2 and Folk is a magical combo. How many other secrets is he hiding ?

        @Azimuth You mean most people don't have a grounded steel plate under it and an IsoTek EVO3 Polaris power strip just for their Folk ? Huh that's crazy.

        I think so. The Qobuz version is a muddy mess, and with the MoFi debacle I wanted to possibly see if I can hear anything different even if its not Vinyl.

      Just purchased a Schiit Folkvangr. I'm hoping it will be the best sounding Space Heater with a headphone jack that I will ever purchase.

        100W is an incandescent light bulb or small LED TV. Space heater is 15x that.

        The whole world is less noisy, not just the electrics. Actually, at least in hot places, the electrics probably get noisier as everyone switches on the ACs at night.

        Some of us are nocturnal. To some of us everything is better at night.
