We have a sponsor - Sublime Hifi. They have generously sponsored a bare metal server to run our Snakeoil project (and Sublime Hifi website) for at least 1 year (and hopefully more).
So I purchased a new AMD Ryzen 5 3600 system a month back. This is the 3rd generation CPU from AMD based on the Zen architecture. The following components form the foundation of the next development machine, replacing the old Xeon from circa 2017.
This is a modest system, all up costing about $1500:
- AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (65W TDP)
- Asus Prime X570-PRO
- 4x 16GB 3200 GHz DDR4
- 250GB NVMe
- Bronze 850W PSU
T’was more than a year ago when Golden Ears is released. Work on Blind Testing begun on the 8th of Aug, 2017.

Today the Snakeoil Squad released Blind Testing. So what’s new in this release, now that we have an extra year of Angular experience under the belt?
There are a total of 63 issues in the Blind Testing road map, of which 31 are new features with the rest (32) bug fixes. You can look at the full list of changes here in the change log.
This is a short post highlighting some of the more exciting new changes in this release, plus the development tools and technologies that powers it.
Today mark another milestone in the Snakeoil project. The Snakeoil Squad have moved all the web contents (blog, forums, bugtracker, demo, updates, etc) from a shared web hoesting server to a VPS.
This is a humble VPS:
- Duo Core 3.5 GHz CPU
- 40 GB SSD
- 2 GB RAM
- Dedicated IP
- 100 MB up and down
While humble, it’s still heaps better than the shared hosting I had before. Already I can feel the improvement in speed. This upgrade paved the way for growth and expansion for Snakeoil. Big thank you for the people who have donated their time and money on this project. All this wouldn’t happen without you guys!
