  1. Certainly I’d be happy with those MusicScope traces. As far as I understand these only indicate whether the life has been squeezed out of the dynamics and this certainly isn’t the case. So not butchered which is a relief. I might just look into purchasing box #1. .sjb
  2. Nice to read a warts and all review. Many thanks Bob, even if the lyric embellished text would not necessarily be my preferred writing or reading experience. I had feared hagiography but got a balanced account of your experience. .sjb
  3. Great in-depth review, thanks. It it was Roon that convinced me to finally sell my CDP as once I had it set up I just gradually stopped using the CDP. .sjb
  4. Can I wish you the very best of luck with this new “style”. My main virtual residence is Pink Fish, so I don’t think the name actually makes much difference but dropping the computer from the title does make sense. .sjb
  5. I'm only here now and again, whether it's a moderation issue or not I can't tell. FWIW I don't think OP moderation is such a good idea as you end up with possibly hundreds of "moderators" with quite different views. If I answer a post and am moderated by the OP, I'll most likely just leave here forever. Having a few trusted members as moderators is a good idea and works very well on PFM. .sjb
  6. Ahem......... Loose USB cable, must have come partially dislodged whilst attaching BNC cable! .sjb
  7. I’m trying to connect ultraRendu to my Chord Hugo TT via a Singxer SU-1 using BNC from Singxer to Hugo. However the ultraRendu does not see the Hugo at all. It it works direct USB to Hugo but following that last 1% it was suggested to me that the Hugo BNC input was marginally better than its USB. Is is this just not possible or am I missing something simple in configuration? thanks, .sjb

    @Miska is the new poly-sinc- ext2 a less CPU demanding version of poly-sinc- ext or is it a completely different filter, I’m not 100% sure from the new manual. What at is the relevance of the Nyquist cut off? .sjb

    @Miska can you list which filters are non-apodizing and explain the sonic differences (sonic preferably) between apodizing and non-apodizing? thanks, .sjb

    I’ve always wondered what is the best filter for brickwalled CDs which in reality (well my reality anyway) are irretrievable, but perhaps a certain filter un- nastys them more than others, do you have an opinion on this ( subjective or objective, I don’t mind). .sjb
  11. Would it not be easier to change the title of the thread? Chord M scaler upsampling vs software upsampling - in theory and practice. And then start a new “official” chord m-scaler thread with just the on topic posts moved to it? .sjb
  12. Indeed it is strange that for some enthusiasts the proof of the pudding is not in the eating but rather in assessing the recipe. .sjb
  13. Can I suggest you take the opportunity created by all this publicity and create a new filter or alter a current one and call it xxxxxxx-2MT. (or 1MT). I realise you have previously questioned the usefulness of the TAPs numeration but it seems to have caught the imagination. I was always a bit amazed at how many DAVE owners were using HQP and maybe just maybe this is why the upscaler has come into existence? It’s a great opportunity to sell more HQP as if there was a 1MT filter happy users like me could spread the word out there in other Hifi fora where HQP is barely known. .sjb
  14. It’s a tough job but I suppose someone has to do it. .sjb
