  1. I'm upgrading from HQP 3.25.2 to 3.25.4 and noticed there was a hotfix issued two days later from original release. How do I get the hotfix release, as all I'm getting is original release which apparently is named differently from the hotfix release? BTW, what's the difference in functionality of HQP 4 Pro, compared to Desktop 3 (X64)?
  2. I would consider a quality Tripp-Lite PDU solution. I've used them exclusively for years without issue. https://www.tripplite.com/products/power-distribution-units-pdus~15?1692=Basic
  3. "Personal Message" between users of this forum.
  4. I did the same thing last month, but with the new Topping DX3 Pro DAC and Sennheiser HD660S headphones. Couldn't be happier!! Glad that I'm no longer limited to the HD280 Pro, which I've had for the past 10 years.
  5. What version of HQ Player are you running? I'm running the latest version (3.25.2) of HQP Desktop.
  6. I had this exact problem two weeks ago until I activated the "Clear Data" menu item under the "Help" pull down. This sorted it straight away. BTW, don't forget to backup your Settings and Playlist options before invoking "Clear Data", otherwise you will lose them forever.
  7. I would like to see that telnet guide, as well. One possibility would be reverting back to original fimware on the BDP-S790 to resolve the ARMv7 incompatibilities. Would this be even possible, at this time?
  8. Have you tried a static IP address, v dynamic IP, yet? Once you programme your router to asign the static IP, it will never change.
  9. I have a BDP-S790, but I know nothing of command-line Linux. OTOH, I'm very familiar with Unix (Sun Solaris and HP-UX) scripting. How much different are Linux shell scripts from Unix shell scripts?
  10. WRT the Sony BDP-S590, will the BDP-S790 work in lieu of the BDP-S590?
  11. Without having to completely read this thread, can someone please clarify what current machines will work correctly to extract SA-CD data.
  12. And the correct answer is, in HQ Player under the "Help" menu item, select "Clear Data". Obviously something was wonky here and this corrected the problem. Before you do this, however, don't forget to backup your "Playlist" and "Settings" options. Now you know!!
  13. Both of my Topping NX4 DSD players have been returned to point of sale, and in their place is a new Topping DX3 Pro player, The DX3 Pro solution is looking much better straight away than the predecessor, with one exception. Playback of 128fs music files are fine, but playback of 256fs files are continually stuttering. I'm attaching a screenshot of settings of HQ player with the hope that someone would be able shed some light on this anomaly. For now I'm simply trying to determine if it's a settings issue in HQP, or if the new player is at fault.
  14. The DX3 relay clicks mean the DAC is doing it's job correctly by changing modes when required to do so. Even my Korg DAC does this. Don't worry of it. I would be more worried if the DX3 didn't do that.
  15. Also known as 64fs, 128fs or 256fs. https://www.nativedsd.com/information/about-dsd
  16. BTW, I received my new DX3 Pro yesterday morning. Very nice, plus it gives me the option to reconfigure it for pre-amp mode and add the D50 later. BTW, what's with the continually flashing headphone symbol on the front panel? It's annoying.
  17. FWIW, my Korg/Audiogate solution is flawless, but it doesn't go to higher resolutions than 128fs. I've also used HQPlayer and Foobar2000 players with the Korg DAC, as well.
  18. What's not working? Just touch your right mouse button for either programme and they will both provide all the options needed to extract archives.
  19. Use WinRAR or 7Zip for that. 7Zip is better for huge and complex tasks such as unzipping fs256 music files.
  20. I recently purchased a Topping NX4 DSD DAC that was DOA. I exchanged it for a new one and now the replacement seems to be misbehaving, as well. That said, do Topping have a QA problem? The NX4 DSD appears to be unable to switch modes from DSD to PCM and will erroneously decimate DSD to PCM. The rear light is constantly blue, never red which will indicate DSD processing. Is this normal? So it now appears time to make a decision. Do I try for yet another NX4 or look higher up the food chain at the DX3 Pro or the DX7S? Will these be better behaved?

    HQ Player

    Yes. I've tried the "SDM Pack" setting both ways, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Other than switching to the appropriate device driver, no.

    HQ Player

    I've just upgraded to the latest version of HQ Player but I'm having a problem. My Korg DSDAC100m automatically switches from PCM to DSD when it needs to in HQP. Not so my new Topping NX4 DSD DAC; No matter what I do it refuses to automatically switch to DSD from PCM mode. It just plays noise instead. Mode switching is fine in latest version of Foobar2000 for both DAC's. Does anyone have any idea of this?
  23. I have no frame of reference to be able to do that as this is all new to me. TBH, some cable descriptions simply say Micro cable, whilst others say Micro B cable. What's the difference? WRT the included cable with A Type USB connector, what is the type of connector on the other end, called?
  24. Attached is NX4 user manual. On page 7, it specifically shows USB Type C cable as part of kit. NX4 DSD User's Manual_EN.pdf One of the supplied USB cables is a very short length Type A to Type C cable which works fine. I need a longer version of that cable, is all.
  25. The USB C Type connector is to be connected to the DAC outout of the DX4 DAC and the USB A Type connector of the cable to the USB A connector of my laptop, because it has only USB A type connectors. My player on the laptop is the latest iteration of Foobar2000. Headphones are Sennheiser HD660S, connected to Topping DAC.
