  1. Jussi explained this is how HQPe handles playback of mono files. Where Stylus will automatically play it back to both channels, HQPe needs it manually mapped to both. This really threw me for a loop as I did not expect this behavior. I rarely if ever play back mono files but need to keep this in mind when doing so.
  2. Then other playback software like Stylus automatically interpret that the file should be played through both channels where HQPe does not?
  3. I've attached the file. I'm not sure how to determine whether it's a single channel mono file. If that's as expected are you saying that HQPe only plays mono recordings back from a single speaker unless it's mapped to both? audiocheck.net_C.wav
  4. I was playing some test files through HQPe and the center imaging file only plays out of the left channel. Likewise I played a different file that is supposed to engage both speakers and only the left speaker played. I can play left or right channel files separately and they play fine. I use Euphony as my OS and Stylus as the front end. This occurs both with our without an NAA so it is being initiated by HQPe. I then played the same center image file through Stylus without HQPe and it worked fine. If this is a known issue already discussed or addressed please let me know
  5. Has anyone noticed any issues with HQPlayer embedded? I was playing some test files and the center imaging file only plays out of the left channel.

This occurs both with our without an NAA so it is being initiated by HQPe. I then played the same center image file through Stylus without HQPe and it worked fine. I've attached the center image file. You can also get it as well as many other test f
  6. It is very disappointing to read this news. I was fortunate to get a custom SR7 before the queue built into years of waiting instead of months, and fortunate to get a couple SR4T's. These are truly top of the line supplies. I always felt it was risky putting money down on a product you knew you were waiting at least a year for. Throw in the continued health issues publicly shared by Paul, as well as other excuse stories about why delays were occurring and you had to know your money was at risk. But it was the best supply out there so people took the risk. I was very tempted mu
  7. With or without HQP? There were some issues at first but they were resolved. Should work fine.
  8. While I haven't completed reading the article, I suspect the focus is on digital, not vinyl releases. MFSL released The Nightfly as MFSL 1-120 in 1983, then more recently using their One Step process in 2017. I own both and recommend the One Step if you listen to vinyl. You can always rip the record to digital.
  9. Is this done by turning Adaptive Noise shaping off? Then does that disable the three preferences: transparency, presentation and HF filter?
  10. If the 20 bit recommendation was based on measurements with NS9 or LNS15 then could it be different for PGGB? There is a difference in sound that @hols is experiencing. I suppose it's possible Hols likes the sound of some distortion. I don't mean that in a negative way because a lot of what characterizes the sound of something, can be some form of distortion.

    It wasn't the NAA, it was the firmware. Zeljko at Euphony thought it might have been the NAA. After "downgrading" the May dac's firmware everything works as expected. Thanks Jussi for pointing me in that direction.
  12. I think we both still have our comp tickets waiting in the wings. Looking forward to it as well as the CSO when we can start seeing the orchestra again. With a firmware "downgrade" I'm able to listen at 32FS. The May shipped with a firmware version that made it more compatible with a wider variety of usb devices, but by doing so they limited that version to 16FS. Mine now works perfectly at 32FS and will be upsampling some tracks with PGGB to listen this evening. I expect to further be astounded and will share my experiences. I do have an open question how
  13. I take that back. It looks like once you start getting into Safe Backup Pro level for Carbonite you don't get unlimited storage. Carbonite Support Knowledge Base So the Backblaze B2 solution is likely the most cost effective and feature rich.
  14. One caveat to the Backblaze option I've found is that you can not backup a mapped drive (to your NAS) or from your NAS directly without the B2 package. Going to B2 can increase the cost from $6/mo substantially depending on your storage and usage. Of course a direct sync with the NAS has its own benefits It does appear that Carbonite will allow backing up mapped drives from a Windows desktop. So if you're looking to keep costs down that might be the best option. Does this align with what others have found?
  15. @ray-dude, @romaz and @austinpop here I thought you guys were just kicking back and enjoying your Extremes. Great to hear you're continuing to explore new improvements. Thanks for all your efforts, and of course thanks to Zaphod. I'm looking forward to hearing how this impacts the music. I'll be checking this out with the Hugo TT2 and Omegas as well as with the new Holo May in my main listening environment. I know you guys are huge DAVE fans, but if you ever get the chance to listen to the May, I'd love to know what you think. I'm very impressed so far and it's just breaking in.
