INNUOS Zenith Mk3 with iPeng Problems
« on: 10 Jul 2020, 08:43 pm »
I recently got the INNUOS Zenith Mk3 server and am trying Tidal as the streaming service. I am not yet ready to try Roon so I am using the iPeng app as suggested in the Zenith Mk3 manual. iPeng will find the Zenith Mk3 and will play digital files stored in its memory but I cannot get it to find and connect with Tidal to stream my playlists. Need help. Thanks

Thanks, I did get it working last night but have no idea how I did it. I just hope it works today.

  We were having some issues with Tidal. All fixed now. Contact Innuos next time they will help. We highly recommend iPeng over Roon. Thanks JackD.

Does Ipeng have all the same features as Roon?? filters, dsp, etc.?? I mean I use Roon and it works flawlessly, what would the up-sell be??

  Hi Don, No DSP or filters. No need and sounds better than Roon as per customer input not me.

Fair enough for those folks who have the perfect speakers for a perfect room, however for the rest of us, or at least me and my experience the speaker usually needs a bit of this or that (an extra bit of mid-bass), or perhaps the tweeter is a bit whispy(hot) and need a slight knock down, Roon is very good at making these slight adjustments while keeping this speakers sonic integrity. I respect the purist's point of view, but I for one like (need) the flexibility. Not trying to crap on this ipeng product, i'd actually never heard of it before yesterday and was curious about the perceived benefits.

Cheers,

Don
