Nothing Than Unexpected... perhaps


Recommended Posts

My Win 7 computer crashed yesterday and I had to re-build the OS, etc. from "ground zero." What began as an aggravating task has provided some rather enjoyable attributes, musically speaking. After getting the ant-virus, etc installed I then installed JRiver and also HQ Player and my DAC drivers, etc. Audio playback is "very clean and detailed, and just that damn good right now!" FYI... enjoy the music, always....

HQ Player (#1) & Audrivana (#2) (wow! love the Apple w/music!!) .. these two software make my system "Amazing!", Purist USB- Benchmark DAC2 HGC (love it!), Purist Audio XLR , ATC SCM25A's (To Die For!) & Focal sub6 . Triode Power Cables with Uber Buss (Yes!) Also enjoy Audeze LCD3 w/"fat pipe cardas."

While a complete crash and full OS rebuild from scratch is a r.p.i.t.a., a 'clean' installation does have its benefits. I would strongly recommend that you create a backup image of your system right now so you can easily recover should another disaster befall you in the future. I have been using the free edition of Macrium Reflect and it recently was a godsend in restoring my system after replacing a failed HDD.

Win 7 will do auto system weekly backups at a time set by you. You create in advance a recovery CD to use this facility.

You can also do manual system backups in Win 8 but the method is not so obvious - search for "File History." I did a manual System backup in Win 8.1 yesterday.

 

How a Digital Audio file sounds, or a Digital Video file looks, is governed to a large extent by the Power Supply area. All that Identical Checksums gives is the possibility of REGENERATING the file to close to that of the original file.
