  1. The bottom left is the source rate. The bottom right shows what rate you are upsampling to, if you are upsampling.
  2. Ok, further listening has me now closer to your settings in that I'm liking 99.5/30000/99/70 using modulator C. When I bring the Filter Phase up near 100 like you the sound becomes somewhat shrill & fatiguing. Of course, I'm sure we have different equipment & listening spaces, so that has to figure into our results.
  3. I tried your settings & some in between my 67 & your 100 on phase (plus modulator at C) & after 2-3 hours ended up right back where I was. I guess my mileage varies. 🙂
  4. I just wanted to say that I am very pleased with 3.5. Once I tweaked the audio settings to 99.5/30000/99/67 and set upsampling to DSD256 using B(6th order) I had sound every bit as good and actually superior to the older version. About the only quibble I have is that many times when I do a search & make a selection, the "<" back button does not take me back to the results of the search. But I'm overall quite happy with 3.5.28 .
  5. I just updated to 3.5.27 and Qobuz is no longer listed at the bottom of the left hand panel. The word Qobuz appears as the first entry under Playlists, but it no longer has "Discover" or any of the other normal categories. Clicking on the word Quboz does nothing. I looked at my streaming prefs & they are still fine. I downloaded & re-installed 3.5.27 but nothing changed. But wait, there's more: I tried selecting from my local library & the entire app crashed. I've attached the crash report. crash report 3.5.27.rtf
  6. I don't see a volume control on the new remote. ?? Nevermind - I've bumped into it somehow.
  7. I'll set it back to -3. Perhaps it will prevent issues. Thanks Jud!
  8. I've never really understood this, unless perhaps one almost maxes out volume. It had been set at -3 in the past and I just ended up turning the volume a bit higher. I haven't heard clipping or seen any other negative.
  9. This is what I like in my system. Your mileage may vary...
  10. I have more options showing under Low Level Playback Options as shown below including Mute During Sample Change. I don't know why yours is more limited.
  11. I have an issue with the display of local folders on the left side of the display. In the older version 2 I clicked on one of them and it opened showing all the playlists within indented a bit to the right. On the left in album view version 2 showed the album covers. In the new version 3.5.8 most local folders display no longer open to show playlists within. All I have is the album covers to the right. Anyone else see this? FWIW these playlists were migrated from version 2.
  12. Thanks! That is more than I knew. I knew about the ASIO & HQP, but had only guessed at how much Direct Mode might be standing in for the Exasound driver. I probably won't test Audirvana without the Exasound driver for now - it's nice to be able to route hi-rez music seller's samples on various web pages thru the DAC.
  13. In my case I use an Exasound e-22 DAC which comes with a proprietary Mac driver from the company. I'm thinking I still need this driver installed for the mac to recognize what hardware I'm using. I can and do use Direct Mode. Am I in effect using the Exasound driver to identify the hardware to the mac but then substituting Direct Mode to handle the sound? I am doubtful I could take the Exasound driver off the mac and still play the music. Would you agree I likely need both drivers?
  14. It depends on which Mac OS you are running. My old 2008 Mac Pro is dedicated to just music and Direct Mode plays fine with El Capitan. Later versions of the OS need a workaround to enable Direct Mode. Look around this topic & you'll probably find directions to bring a kext file from an earlier OS to those post-El Capitan.
