Phantom Premier Owners - Upgraded to DOS2
#1
Checking to see how many Phantom Premier Owners have upgraded to DOS2.  

I haven't because I am not convinced that DOS2 will give me any benefits, maybe a slight sound improvements.  Plus not convinced that all DOS2 issues have been resolved.

Upgraded Yes, but not happy with DOS2. Very unstable.

1) Need to run setup 50% of the time to use it and that might require powercycle of everything - including your network infrastructure.
2) Remote will not pair (again).

Question for others: Would be interested if you are running DOS2 what do your network connections look like? are they working not working?
PLC, WIFI, Ethernet?

For example: router with AP, connected to a switch, dialog, 2 phantoms , and 1 media server plugged into the Ethernet switch.

Is not working for me under DOS2 but worked very well for DOS1.

Upgraded single Phantom Premier to DOS2 - very pleased - seems stable and the sound is better IMHO. I did have to make some changes to the way I listen to music but nothing too drastic - switched to using UPNP and Plex (which I already had) and so far no problems.

I am thinking of getting a second-hand Classic so I can go to stereo but can't comment on that side of things. Its frustrating because there seem to be quite a few Silvers and Golds out there (ebay etc) but not many Classics and I can't afford a new one at the moment!

So its a positive from me.

PS slight buzz I had on optical input with my turntable also seems to have gone with DOS2 - no idea why that would be but another plus for me.

My upgrade to DOS 2 went smoothly and I keep my Dialog, because I prefer optical as an input. My first impression is positive. The sound may be slightly better than with DOS 1 and the soundstage improved a bit.
I am now on 2.8.5.

That was a stereo pair of Golds, connectd by ethernet. I expected the remote not to work, an in fact it doesn't.

Is there a way to make the remote work again?

I forgot to mention that after a while and after doing the re-connection procedure above one of the phantoms, the remote worked again. I am very happy.
