  1. Jason, Thanks for sharing this on here. Did not see this interview earlier for some reason. I've been using Belden cables for a few years now in my setup and have been very happy with them. If Galen is on here I'd like to ask a couple of questions on the materials used in cables. Copper and Silver are very popular among many of us. Copper still is for me absolutely fantastic. I really would like to know about Tinned Copper - their use in "vintage" cables like WE etc. Regards.
  2. Tea Service at the The Lobby Lounge, Ritz Carlton Bangalore This is English Breakfast Tea ordered a la carte but they have an excellent Afternoon Tea which is legendary. .
  3. Presenting the biryani chai - served after a hearty meal in the city of Calicut (Khozikode) here in India. This is a hearty cup that is served hot to cleanse the palate after a spicy biryani meal which is a meat and rice dish that came over to India from ancient middle east. The city of Calicut was a primary destination for Arab merchants in the spice trade. The Arabs traded horses, dates etc for spices that made their way to Europe via Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey). .
  4. Just sharing some teas I have with me right now. The Kannavarai tea was a gift and is from a small tea estate. The Kashmiri Kahwa and the Himalayan Black Orthodox from Dharmsala Tea Company was something I picked up online on a whim. My usual cup is a more mainstream rose tea from a local brand ... perhaps will share that one later.
  5. Allen Toussaint - The Bright Mississippi .
  6. Could you please share the model numbers of the cables you used? There is a fair amount of variation in the cables within brands as well. Thanks for sharing your impressions. Regards .
  7. Wow! Turns out that it was cable related. I have borrowed a Van den Hul Digicoupler 75 ohms cable and 24/192 now plays without a hitch! I also have a Lifatec glass optical cable on the way to try out as well - will see if that makes a difference. Thank you everyone for your help. .
  8. Thanks for the confirmation on the settings. Will take a look at the OS settings and see if I can find something there. .
  9. Don't think this is the issue but will check. Have two more cables coming in which I will use to check with. .
  10. Thanks but I checked the manual. SPDIF Optical supports up to 192 DSD 64/128 for example gets converted to 24/176.4 and plays without a problem. .
  11. I have a Mutec MC-3+ USB on loan this week and have it setup as below; Win10 AudioPC > USB Cable > Mutec MC-3+ USB > Optical Cable > DAC Integrated Using the Mutec INTERN Clock + RE-CLK with »USB-PCM and »USB-DSD/DoP« as clock reference »CLOCK MULTIPLIERS« set to reference clock x 1 (as per the image) I am getting great sound for all sample rates upto 24/96 including DSD 64/128. However the MUTEC craps out whenever I send a 24/176.4 or 24/192 file. Any suggestions on what I need to do to accommodate these sample rates?
  12. @christopher3393 Fantastic numbers! Thanks for sharing them on here. Listened to them both from start to end ... just mesmerized by them. .
  13. I'm really glad to see that he survived the strokes but Keith Jarrett not being able to play the piano is just such sad news. .
