Amp Recommendation for Vienna Acoustics
I am getting very good results with a pair of Bryston 28B SST2 monoblocks for my VA The Music. I use the MBL N11 preamp with the Brystons. Yes, VA speakers need lots of power to get the bass and everything else just right. Hope this helps.  
Esoteric Grandioso K1x SE ......when are they going to be available here in the US ?
I am very happy that you made the right choice. I used to own Esoteric players and the transport reliability just wasn't what I paid for. Very disappointing.   
InnuOS Sense 2.6.0.
bluethinker, So true. When the right preamp is in place, every part of the system just falls into place beautifully. The preamp is truly the heart of the system and when it pulls every component together to make great music, you don't want to lo... 
InnuOS Sense 2.6.0.
  @bluethinker,   By turning up the volume of your Zenith to 100%, you eliminate digital grunge and/or loss of digital resolution when all volume control duties are transferred to analog via your preamp. Nice preamp, by the way. Cheers!  
InnuOS Sense 2.6.0.
@bluethinker, I have not experienced what you have. If you are using a pre-amp, try keeping the Sense app volume at 100%, and control the volume only with your preamp. Hope this helps.  
InnuOS Sense 2.6.0.
The improvement in sound quality is, at least for me, like an upgraded component. Innuos is really on top of their game.   @bluethinker, +1. It’s like my entire system got upgraded. I am so glad I haven’t bought anything new lately. Cheers!  
InnuOS Sense 2.6.0.
I am just curious as to how a firmware update to a server can improve SQ by so much. I mean it is truly amazing! Is this some sort of FPGA which I understand mostly applies to dacs? Any thoughts?  
Problem With Innuos Sense - Won't Play Selected Song?
nyev, Try rebooting your Zenith Mk 3. I had the same issue but all gone now after the reboot. Hope this helps,  
Can a system sound too Holographic?
We get it. You want to talk about technicals. I just want to enjoy my music as live as it can be. To each his own, as always. Cheers!

@carlsbad2   I am going along with @antigrunge2 :- "Innuos is deliberately designed with a low power, low noise CPU. Roon however puts heavy demands on the CPU through DSP and other features, so it fundamentally follows a different design phil... 
Can a system sound too Holographic?
Setting aside the technical stuff, what I hear from a system should be as close as possible to a live event.  It's live, it's real. No amount of engineering in the studio or in a system component should make music sound any more holographic than ...

@carlsbad2 Thanks for the reassurance but maybe it’s just me as I really do like the Sense interface. So less is just more in terms of fewer circuits and cables. Cheers!  
Can a system sound too Holographic?
@aniwolfe  I agree with your friend. A soundstage that is too holographic is not natural. Music emanating from a live soundstage is never too deep or wide.

@antigrunge2 The current version of the Sense app allows you to clear your queue cache without going through service personnel. Clearing the queue cache is like clearing the cache of your computer or phone. It regularly frees up memory hogged b...

Roon vs Innuos Sense app :- https://community.roonlabs.com/t/having-problems-with-roon-with-innuos-zenith/169710 Roon does not seem to synergise with Innuos.
