Audirvana Plus 3 for Windows (Official Thread)

Recommended Posts

Can someone confirm or deny whether BOTH Audirvana for Windows AND Audirvana for Mac will get the Leedh Processing?

Thanks

I understand both will, but I don't think it is clear what will be available immediately. I don't think anyone (aside for D. Plisson who is a member of CA) can give a definitive answer at this point. You just have to wait and see...

Working with an ASIO interface would be a walk in the park compared to MacOS core Audio workarounds. There's an SQ benefit right away.

 

Windows on desktops outnumbers OSX by 6:1, larger audience, bigger revenue.

As the title says and per the request of the CA Community, here's the official A+ topic for Windows. 

 

Sorry Chris,

 

I see no reason for creating "official threads" even when some members are asking for.

We have now double threads for Audirvana for Mac and double threads for Audirvana for Windows which does not make sense at all.

It's created, but you don't have to use it.

That is not the point.

In the end you could have for any existing thread an "official thread".

Every member on this forum can create a new thread.

When we have an existing thread, why should Chris create an additional "official thread"?

Ah - Because in the past for A+ on Mac, there have tended to be multiple threads on the same topic, and people complained they sometimes had to search all these multiple threads to find what they wanted.  So it was done by request in order for forum members to know the one thread to go to.  We are thinking A+ on Windows will be sufficiently different to merit its own thread.

This is a repost from the unofficial thread. Hope it catches @damien78's attention better :)

--
Can't wait to try this out via A+ soon as I have not been using a Preamp for a long time, just relying on the preamp section of my DACs.

There are also some great DACs without volume control, so Leedh digital volume will give the digital only systems more options to choose from when hunting for better DACs.

@damien78, would you be kind enough to confirm if Leedh Processing will be included in both Mac and Win versions of A+?
Merci.

So, on May 31st Damien said the Windows beta would be released in a few days.  It is now June 4th.  Any update?

The answer of course is always "When it's ready," and the prediction business, even by Damien himself, is a hazardous one!  :)

Jud,

like you I do not want multiple threads on the same topic.

Now we have a thread "Audirvana for Windows" created by @bhobba.

Do you really want to go for multiple threads with creating an additional "official thread" on the SAME topic?

Is it the official wish to post in the "official thread" only?

Why is @bhobbas thread not good enough for this topic?

I hope you understand my point.

 

Matt

 

Yeah agreed the @bhobba thread pre-dates this and already has posts worth reading.

 

Chris I'd suggest closing this before we have a muddle of partial info on each and make the @bhobba thread the 'official' one - is that possible?

@damien78 I can't install the A+ Windows beta.  I sent you the log in a PM on CA.  I can't use PM on the A+ forum because I just registered and I haven't posted anything yet.

Screen shots, navigation and short SQ review of Audirvana + for Windows at Phile Web

 

Couple of worthy notes:

 

It is noteworthy that the first Windows version has realized the same sound quality as the conventional Mac version. 

 

First, compare it with "Windows JRiver Media Center 24", one of Windows's standard playback software. I played track 3 "LOVE" from Diana Krall "Turn Up the Quiet" (192 kHz / 24 bit FLAC). For tone balance, Audirvana Plus faithful to the original sound, JRiver tends to rise high and low. Especially the facial expression of the snare drum is very different, JRiver feels a bit flashy texture. Both upper and lower f ranges are comparable, but Audirvana Plus outperforms the depth of the sound stage and the reality of vocals.

When I try to install the A+ beta I get

Cannot continue.  The application is improperly formatted.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

Haven't had that problem.  Did you make sure the two required runtime libraries were installed before attempting the A+ Win Beta install?

Yes, I have .Net 4.7.1 and the required Visual C++ runtime and I rebooted.

OK, time to report that one as an issue on your setup.
