AQUA acoustic quality LinQ Core Update

AQUA acoustic quality writes: “We are pleased to announce that a new LinQ Core firmware release is available (v. 1.4). This release is updated to the latest changes introduced by Roon and HQPlayer and indicated as in operation on Monday, February 28.”

We are particularly satisfied with our work as we were informed of these changes only on February 24, and a considerable effort was therefore necessary to avoid inconveniences to our customers.

This fast update was only possible because Aqua, having the required know-how, develops its devices 100% internally.

We are in contact with Jussi of HQPlayer (Signalyst) in order to provide the best support and any future improvements.

Note: our new update is fully operational, but we notice that these days Roon releases new versions at very short intervals.

For this reason it would be advisable in our opinion to disable the automatic Roon updates, until it appears stable enough.

Please also note that HQPlayer Embedded starting from this release (4.29.3) requires an Internet connection to work.

The procedure to update the LinQ HQP Core module is very simple, you can find it at
