    Yes, @Swiissbear experience parallels my own with PC USB to Singxer SU-1 then I2S to X-Sabre DAC (using synchronous mode on the X-Sabre) producing the most musically satisfying results..

    Thanks @sledwards. That is a very helpful clarification.

    Hi @MiskaI have same Matrix X-Sabre Pro DAC as @sledwardsbut rather than PCM upsampling I usually output to SDM / DSD. Would the fast roll-off linear phase DSC filter setting also be best choice to minimize DAC modifying the HQ Player output in DSD scenario as well?

    I had that issue when I changed screen resolution, placing OK button below visible screen. Try resizing / scrolling down or even just hitting enter on keyboard.
  5. Beautiful set up. Framed "Blues For Allah" cover is a very nice touch!

    Myself, and perhaps other devotees of HQPlayer, have minimal familiarity w/PEQ as contrasted to graphic EQ. Can you recommend a web resource or guide for the basics of PEQ that may help us correctly explore this new functionality in HQPlayer Desktop? Thanks!

    I have Matrix X-Sabre Pro as well and can confirm ASDM5EC is an excellent choice. I do have 48k DSD checked with no issues, but prefer to leave adaptive output rate off as it's quite easy to adjust for best setting at start of album playback. Just my 2 cents.

    Sweet! Please share what type of horsepower the conducive PC sports. Thanks!

    To provide some balance I have noticed no change in usable filters / cpu limitation since 4.6 --> 4.7, runs as before at either 128 or 256 w/o dropouts. Admittedly I run ASDM5EC with my Sabre DAC, not ASDM7EC, however, as that sounds best. Clearly though there are others who have experienced changes. It may be worth knowing what distinguishes those who's usability has decreased post-upgrade from those who didn't at least to isolate any commonalities that can be addressed.

    Jussi previously suggested that with ESS sabre ASDM5EC may actually be better than ASDM7EC, if I recall correctly. I am using it quite happily with my Matrix Audio Abre DAC.

    With my modest i7700 and 1060 GTX I am enjoying HQP 4.7, prior settings all run at same CPU / GPU utilization as with 4.6. No dropouts. Admittedly, I do not run fanless. I suspect it would be very challenging for @Miskato develop a truly "one size fits all" product development roadmap given the heterogeneity of end users' host systems. It is totally valid to provide feedback, of course, and to maximize applicability to multiple use cases as feasible is the right goal. That said, I think HQPlayer is a specialty product designed for people who seek a powerful set of tools for music playback, for

    Thank you @Miska. More generally, I had impression that for most use cases one should set DAC bits as high as the DAC supports. Does that still hold true and if not, what determines optimal setting for a particular DAC?

    To my ears activating the Bauer crossfeed seems to constrict the sound, not what I expected, but pleasing in some respects and I could see it producing less fatugue for long listening sessions. I would like to learn more about other crossfeed variations. If anyone has a recommended custom setting please share. The versatility of HQPlayer is really quite amazing. Thank you @Miska.
