  1. Recently (after desktop 4.2.1. ?), HQPD does not hold the HQP settings. I have to set it to SDM manually, everytime I switch the app on. I unistalled and re-installed the app but the problem persists. Has anybody else had this behaviour, or am I doing something wrong?
  2. Hi Jay, It's the 4.7 version. You can access it via Eunhasu page on your machine. Also, see here: https://www.sotm-audio.com/sotmwp/english/eunhasu4-7/ The sound is really good, more natural instrument timbres and smoother note decay.
  3. New firmware is out! New version of NAA is stable and sounds fine!
  4. I'm not knocking down the Soekris or smps as a rule. It's the bang for the buck ratio that puzzles me and some of the literature. For comparative purposes, the similarly priced full blown (balanced-ladder volume control, etc.) Lampizator Baltic looks like that :
  5. I had their speakers. Very well built, balanced and a bargain for the asking price. The DAC uses the Soekris module, also used by Lampizator in the older version of the Atlantic DAC, but the power supply uses DC to DC converters, not linear power. At the DAC's asking price though, there is some serious competition out there...
  6. The DAC is in mint condition and will ship in its original double box. It sounds absolutely wonderful as I have written about it here: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/26182-in-a-state-of-euforia/?tab=comments#comment-486790 I have upgraded the tubes to NOS types and it now sports the following: Valvo ECC88, Philips JAN 5963 (ECC82/12AU7) and an RCA black plate 6X5GT rectifier. 1200 € with free shipping in Europe.
  7. DSD5EC & ext2 filter: None of the calories, all of the taste!😁
  8. I have to have CUDA offload checked for it to work properly, but multi-core greyed and not checked for the CPU to work below 30%. I don't know if that's how it's supposed to behave though...
  9. 4.6 sounds really good. Actually, it sounds "what just happened?" good, with a great mid kick that makes everything come alive. However, neither HQPlayer nor Roon upsampling work with 100BASE-T in my set-up.

    HQ Player

    I think HQPlayer is more than just a piece of software. The SQ effect it has -on my system at least- is tremendous and as such quite fundamental too, as I'm building my system around it rather than the other way round. Its updates also usually mean even better SQ. I'm not affluent, but I find the cost of something that provides me with so much musical pleasure, justified and I feel I must support the person responsible for it... I also urge people to try HQPD Control (which is free). Its function is not unlike Roon remote or such. All my genres, artwork, etc show up fine in HQPD Control, so when I play music I concentrate on the music and not the program.
