    Stefano_mbp...either grow up or please leave. Your comments border on childish. Jussi has spent hundreds of posts trying to troubleshoot. Not sure why; your appreciation level is zero.

    Bob, do you mean you only use jazz DSD recordings or do you mean you only upsample to DSD, not high rate PCM?

    Jussi, I'm sure us HQPlayer users (especially those getting started) would LOVE an addition to the user manual with a reference to the music you successfully mated/tested with these (especially) filters and modulators..like the St Tropez reference. 👍 We realize that you have some that likely you've put out to pasture, personally, so to speak, such as non-EC modulators, so we wouldn't expect a comprehensive list. But it may even cut down on the same old requests here on the forum. It would give folks a starting point. My $.02

    If you are using DirectSDM then all DSD stuff is NOT upsampled, just PCM.
  5. YYZ, Nice report over on Audiogon. I've had my eyes on both those integrateds (Coda and Krell) but for now have found some low cost magic by playing Roon-to-HQPlayer on two different pcs, into the Schitt Jot-R (via Holo Spring KTE dac). The serendipitous combo of pulling Roon off my HQP server and putting it on my desktop pc for now has given me some warmth and yet tremendous detail (thx to HQPlayer). As all of us RAAL users have stated, fatigue is one small move away if you don't watch it. These ear speakers are so incredibly revelatory that all recipes upstream have a significant impact,

    First off, what is this talk of HQP 5 all of a sudden? Jump in, man, HQP 4 is just fine. And yes, of course existing users are treated well. To go from 3 to 4 you simply had to enter your HQP 3 key into the online purchase form and 25% was deducted. I think there are times when addtl discounts can be had....Jussi is a fair gentleman in business and in technology. This is not really a line item in your overall audio investment that you should be worried about IMHO. You'll pay more to have heavy amplifiers shipped.
  7. Thanks @kdubious Wow, you need to chat here more often; your ration is 5 posts per year. 😀 Your stuff looks interesting, especially the I2S interfaces. Thx
  8. @kdubiousare you a manufacturer or dealer? It looks like you are; if so please put that info in a link in your signature. I applaud those folks, like @AfterDark., who, when reminded a few days ago, immediately put that info in his signature block. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE chatting with manufacturers and dealers here on AS. They bring important leading edge info, good feedback, and often easy access to products and services. But......they also bring a bias that needs to be well-publicized...a financial interest that undoubtedly categorizes their opinions to a separate categor

    Easy lifting comparatively. Filters are non-issue and assume you stay with wide and IIRC in DSD settings.
  10. Danadam, I am having us look into this (tracktotal) and see if any of it is our doing. If it is I will stop it. Thx Ted Sorry for the hijack.

    Anecdotal, but when I added a simple Netgear GS108 switch and moved Roon to another pc (currently my old Win7 desktop) the music sq jumped quite a bit forward. So....adding ethernet and a cheap switch was an easy tradeoff over getting Roon off my HQPlayer machine.
  12. I wish I had a say in some of those labels' practices. I HATE tracktotal values. MP3tag solves them, btw. :)

    There is no upsampling going on, just filler. Don’t worry

    Tonym, There is a setting above all that called "dac bits". If that is set for 24, then that's what you'll see.
  15. Yes, I do tagging for a living (well, not living, but it's my volunteer job at Native) and wouldn't live without MP3tag; as you say, an invaluable tool. One of the favorite things I do, when almost done with an album, is to go to tag-> filename and have MP3tag rename my files themselves according to a format string (and you can have multiple in pulldown) I created. This gives consistency to your filenames, and helps just in case one goes rogue and wants to be an orphan. Easy to identify.
