  1. I am have been using Pachanko SATA and other cables for quite some time, started with the SATA MKII, then replaced the MKII with the Reference SATA when it became available, I moved up to the Pure Reference SATA later, for every upgrade I did the SQ made a big leap forward, noise floor was reduced with each upgrade, also the sonics, soundstage depth and width improved. Definitely the icing on the cake is the move to the Aphelion SATA, I could hear an improvement in the sound quality within a few minutes after replacing the Pure Reference with the Aphelion, the sound kept getting better th
  2. Sorry, I should have written EPS Motherboard is the Asus H87M-E
  3. Installed the 20P=>24P ATX power cable today. Definite improvement is the sound quality. Sound is smoother with less edgeiness, and also quieter. Posting a picture of the audio server with the Ghent internal power cables indicated with the red arrows
  4. Once again AudioPhil’s magical Pixie Dust sprinkled on the AudiophileOptimizer 3.0 General Availability will uplift any Windows computer audio to a new high. Phil’s dedication and attention to details has taken the computer audio community through the staged of betas which got better with each release, the final release of AO 3.0 is definitely a several steps above the last beta (38). After listening into the early hours of the morning was so gratifying that you got deeply involved in the music, it was like being there, whether a studio or live performance. This is what I hear i
  5. Has anyone upgraded their ATX and ESD cables in their music server? I ordered the cables from Ghent Xu who runs ghentaudio.com After replacing the stock ESD cable in my music server the sound quality was moved to a higher level. Smoother and more detailed voices, instruments. He is currently making a custom 24P=>20P ATX cable for me. I will report on what it does for my system after I receive and install it. He is also a super guy to deal with, excellent and quick responses to questions. He definitely does quality work, I am also using his DC33 Oyaide DC 5 volt
  6. Folks, here is my feedback on AO 3.0 beta 29 As an early adopter for Phil's AudiophileOptimizer (been using AO more than 5 years) I always look forward to his new releases. Phil never cease to amaze the computer audiophile community with his AudiophileOptimizer program. It just keeps getting better with every reiteration of AO that he releases. Let's cut to the chase and talk about my evaluation of AO 3.0 beta 29. 1. The installation is much faster than 2.20 2. Sound: -First noticeable improvement is the bass; more slam, rounded, accurate in my system and I

  8. Are you looking for a used Pachanko SATA cable? I have new Pachanko Mk2 (30 cm) and Pachanko Reference (30 cm) How many do you need?
  9. Hello wushuliu, I agree with Phil, my experience with the Pachanko SATA cables needs 250 hours of music playing through them before they bloom and starts to excel. Give it some time and I am sure you will love what you are hearing.
  10. The Pachanko SATA cables are very easy to work with, they are flexible and does not put any pressure on the Motherboard or Hard Drive SATA connections. Separate and a[part from that, they are the best upgrade you can do when it comes to SATA cables, it beats all other Audiophile SATA cables IMO.
  11. With the excellent work Phil did to enable the availability of Device Manager in Core I am able to update the Display Adapter to use the correct video drivers and viola!! superb graphics in Core now, no more Microsoft Default. It is indeed a beautiful thing. (Expand Display Adapters | Right click on the adapter | Select Update driver | paste the location of the files for the driver. done deal!!)
  12. Hello dm68, Taking the liberty to answer your question, but AudioPhil may chime-in and correct me if I am wrong, I do believe when you upgrade to AO 2.20 beta 5 after he releases it that "Transport Failed to load media" issue will go away and Roon will load and play your music files without any issues. When you upgrade remember to install WASAPI and during the AO optimization you need to select enable Roon Support. Go to this link for some installation and setup instructions plus additional information on the AO 2.20 beta 5 http://jplay.eu/forum/index.php?/topic/2321-wasapi-in-c
  13. With AO 2.20 beta 5 embedded Roon support, I did not experience the need to install any dependency software like the Media Pack for Windows Server 2012; as was the case with the previous version of AO. Roon installed and worked without any issues. My tests and evaluation were only done on Windows Server 2016 Core.
  14. My testing was exclusively done on Windows Server 2016 core. I will bet the farm that the improvement in sound quality will be better than it was in Server 2012 R2 GUI. Before Server 2016 I used Server 2012 R2, and it was always in core mode. I would not hesitate to upgrade to AO 2.20 beta 5 for GUI or Core
  15. I was very honored and fortunate to be asked by AudioPhil to be a part of the closed group of beta testers for what at the time would be his latest AudiophileOptimizer AO 2.20 beta5, which is now a reality for those who have been waiting and I guess some of whom have been chomping at the bit for this remarkable update for the already universally accepted as the best software for computer audio. There were several iterations of AudiophileOptimizer 2.20 beta5, as the releases evolved and the tests and reporting kept improving by identifying few bugs and suggested tweaks to Phil, the excitem
