  1. Less than impressed with the Vision D M/B - finally recognizes the original Gigabyte GTX970 graphics adapter after flashing the latest BIOS update. I dont remember doing so many CMOS jumper resets to get the system to boot 1. after BIOS u/g, 2: trying to enable CSM in the UEFI BIOS (which is broken) to get Linux to boot - gave up with that.
  2. i7-10700k will run all filters except Sinc-L at DSD256 & ASDM7EC. CPU runs at 4.8GHz or 5.1 depending on filter when playing. TDP is around 70-80W according to HWInfo.
  3. Some details of the RTX 3080 Ti have been leaked. Expected to have 5376 CUDA cores 10GB GDDR6 VRAM and run at 2.2GHz, 40% improved performance over 2080 Ti. Due for release Sep/Oct.
  4. Just completed a I7-10700k build with Noctua NH-D15 cooler on Gigabyte Vision D m/b, 32gb 3200 CL16 ram. Have not installed GPU yet & can do ASDM7EC at DSD256 with all filters except Sinc-L. Cooling these processors on air is marginal. Got stable O/C all cores at 4.8GHz with limiting PL1/PL2 TDP to 158/160w to keep temps within safe limit. Can run Prime95 blend around 70c and small FFT tests around 82c.These boards ship with Enhanced Multi-Core Performance enabled which sets the CPU voltage way too high. Was able to get higher clocks & benchmarks at lower temps by optimizing the power draw.

    Still cannot run sinc-L at DSD256 ASDM7EC after overclock. Cores are only at about 28%. The mutlcore setting is set to grey check.

    This cooler also blocks the PCI-ex16 slot. Basically any mainboard with the PCI-ex16 slot as the first slot is incompatible with the larger Noctua coolers. The 10th gen CPUs can draw 250w+ & need lots of cooling.

    Tried sinc-L and DSD256 ASDM7EC on i7-10700k system and drops audio every few seconds. Will play fine with sinc-S from any PCM rate. Yet to try overclocking. Unfortunately old GPU (GTX970) either died or is not compatible with new M/B so running using iGPU until I get replacement. Damn Noctua NH-D15 cooler on Gigabyte Vision D m/b blocks the PCI-x 16 slot by about 5mm. Poor design. Looking at water cooling replacement.
  8. The inter core latency on the 10th gen of 20-25ns is lower than 8th gen i7 at 40ns and Ryzen ccx latency of 60-70ns.
  9. Specs for i7-10700k and i9-10900k have been released. 10700k is 8/16 HT cores and 5.1GHz clock 125W TDP 10900k is 10/20 HT cores and 5.3GHz clock. Both have new LGA1200 socket. No AVX512.
  10. Metadata can be exported from the original .flac file using metaflac.exe (part of the flac tools) & imported into the processed flac file.
  11. I have developed a PowerShell script dap.ps1 for Windows to make it easier to preview decoding. Copy dap.ps1 into folder where da-avx.exe resides. sox,exe and da-avx.exe should be both added to the system path. **Note dap.ps1 will play to the default audio device only. Select the DAC as the Windows active audio device first. To use: 1. open PowerShell prompt in folder where music files reside (Shift+right-click and select Open PowerShell window here) 2. enter the command dap.ps1 '<flac filename>' -da "<parameters to pass to da-avx.exe>". This will play decoded in real-time from the beginning of track. Press Ctrl+C to stop. --basic is already included in script, so no need to add. To play a limited section of the track , add -range "<start>,<duration>" option in mm:ss format. To play without decoding, remove the -da option and specify -nop. This will play directly from sox.exe. To play an a/b comparison, setup 'a' sample as above, then add -b to command and one of -bnop or -bda and -brange for 'b' track configuration. The window will display which section (a or b) is currently playing. dap.ps1
  12. Released with additional Filter Map source types and a number of improvements: Changed: Improved readability of current track information panel. Added DR information for playing track. Changed: Current filter information display improved. Changed: Search in Album view improved. Type first few letters to jump directly to that artist. Changed: Removed default filter option. Specify defaults for each source type separately with pcm,* & dsd,* New: Allows for [Source] mode option. Adjusts filter display for each track. New: Filter selection drop-down has button to load Filter Maps settings directly from main screen. New: Filter Maps setting window has new 'Show Album Filters' button to display all album or playlist specific defined filters. Filters can be modified or deleted from the list. New: Double-click on existing filter entry to modify output settings. (Click + to update). New: Right click on Library tab label directly loads Library settings screen. New: Phase invert button state is now remembered for the current zone after re-running Alchemy. New: Auto-discovery of new HQPlayer filter types in Filter Maps settings. New: Additional Filter Map types for source content matching: pcm,1x;pcm,2x;pcm,4x;pcm,44.1k+;pcm,48k+;dsd,1x;dsd,2x;dsd,4x;dsd,44.1k+;dsd,48k+ Fixed: Adding tracks to existing playlist would cause the cover art image of playing track to be cleared. Fixed: Album tracks display state was not restored when re-running Alchemy.

    After uninstalling and reinstalling HQPlayer 4.2.3 and resetting the options, CUDA offload now working again. Dropouts stopped once the Multicore DSP option was checked.

    HQPlayer desktop 4.2.3 Windows 10 CUDA offload is not working. Offload was enabled on previous version, but playlist loads with offload=disabled. CUDA offload setting is checked & have CUDA version 10.2 installed. edit:HQPlayer 3.5.4 reports offload=enabled, but any HQPlayer 4.x reports offload=disabled with the same settings.
