I'm in the process of rewriting the blog. That's why it is not available for the time being.

Tomorrow at 1500 Zulu you'll find TT30 and the new documentation.

Cheers

I have followed with interest this thread with a "slanting eyes", because I'm running a setup with the Squeezebox Duet and not Touch as this thread is about. I have studied the "Modification Outlines" five main points to improve the performance of the Touch. My question is: Which points to the Touch modifications can directly be used to improve the Squeezebox Duet?

Section 5.1 (replace the power unit), I am well familiar with, and I am in the process to complete a shunt regulated unit (Salas).
But what about all the other points mentioned in "Modification Outline"? Allows anyone to be transfered to a Duet? What about the new version that are "around the corner"??

Congratulations and sincere thanks for releasing TT3.0 with the very complete documentation! No problem downloading the file...

I will be going through the installation/testing/listening process today and I will comment on my results in a few hours.

In the meantime, THANK YOU KLAUS for all your hard work and time on this project!

Cheers!

Thumbs up First Impressions - TT 3.0

After downloading Soundcheck's new modification toolkit 3.0 and installing it without any problems thanks to the very clear step-by-step documentation provided on the blog, I am totally "blown away" with the very obvious improvements to my listening experience.

I have no hesitancy to recommend these software mods to owners of the Logitech Touch... It is not difficult to implement Klaus' recommendations and the results are most gratifying.

Due to my wireless setup, the only mod I have not able been to implement is the LAN mode. Most of my listening is streaming from Spotify Premium (OGG Vorbis 320 kbps) and to me the listening experience clearly surpasses or is equal to listening to my collection of CDs streaming from the SBS. (of course, this is a totally subjective impression - trust your own ears!).

Again, warmest congrats to Klaus for all his hard work in developing this toolkit for us!

Hello Klaus,
The documentation you have made is impressive and very nice to read!
I hope i have time tomorrow evening to implement the new toolbox. I will post my findings after listening.
Thank you for your effort and i hope it will be a step up compared to the 2.0 Toolbox.

Hi Klaus,

Can you please explain what the Daemon Killer Mod does?

Also, I am not clear about what you mean by "need to rerun it every time you reboot or restart the system"

Do you mean, I need to rerun it when I turn off the Squeezebox touch, or that I need to rerun it when I restart my PC?

Sorry for the dumb question.

Thanks

Hi Erin.


It does what it says. It kills daemons.


Under Unix quite some (system-) processes are sitting in
the background - more or less idle.

These are called daemons.

There are e.g.

syslog,ksyslog,inet,ssh,dropbear daemons.


Some of them are important of course. Though our audio works without
them.

I kill all of them. That's why you get logged out and the system becomes
not accessible anymore.

To get back to "normal" TT3.0 operation you either plug the cable or push the black button on the back (<5s to "avoid" a factory reset) .

I'll rephrase the text a little. You're not the first one asking.

Enjoy.
