Nucleus connected direct to ethernet, then my dac plugged into the nucleus… has constantly(for about a year) crashed to the point of having to power cycle it to get it back… sometimes in the middle of a song. I have multiple endpoints but I only use one at a time. About 7000 Tidal/Quobuz albums, and some DSD (12-15 DSD256) Mostly classical. No pattern to crashes, but when adding albums it is more likely. I have had to plug it into a remote control outlet so I can power-cycle it because it crashes so often. It has an extra internal ATA SSD drive
In addition, it crashes with any kind of DSP even using only one endpoint and 16/41 Redbook CDS. I would like to be able to use dsp for EQ and convolve, etc. its a rev B… nothing but trouble from day one. Soooooo frustrated. I am a lifetime Roon subscriber.
DAC is Project Pre-box S2 Digital. I back up onto a direct plugged(into Nucleus) external SSD.
Was also having problems with phantom albums(albums I didnt add were adding themselves to my library, but I think that was a Tidal problem and it seems to be fixed now) I understand the Nucleus cant do dsp with DSD files… but it should be able to handle it on regular CDs… especially with only one user.
