    Jussi, if the buffer size is set to maximum in my Win10 ASIO driver (max. is 16384 for my Singxer SU-1 driver), should I also use high buffer setting (EG - 100ms) in the HQPlayer settings dialogue box? is there any trade-off between sound quality and high buffer size to minimize cpu usage and dropouts?

    Really appreciating the new filer options in 4.12/0 Poly-sinc-gauss-long sounds great with classical music!

    Thank you Jussi, Sinc-Mx sounds spacious and natural to me, perhaps a bit better than Sinc-M with equivalent or better CPU / GPU usagege in most scenarios. I may be too unsophisticated to fully understand your explanation above so I'll just ask: are the variable # taps with constant length at each multiple applicable to PCM sources whether they are upsampled tp higher rate PCM or output to SDM / DSD?

    What are the advantages of this setting rather than "wide"...?

    Is there any sonic disadvantage to DoP versus native DSD playback?

    I use a Matrix X-Sabre pro which I had thought does support 48k, I have the box checked and playback seems appropriate speed. Is this an audible defect and if so, is the fix just to uncheck the 48k check box?
  7. Thank you for this article. I have used MP3Tag for years on Windows and it is both simple to use and powerful. Although I initially used it as freeware, I have donated to the developer after several upgrades and will do so in the future, as his work is exemplary. Easily worth $20. Glad to hear it is expanding to other platforms.

    As a Windows 10 user who's PC audio journey was catalyzed and immensely improved by HQPlayer Desktop, I am grateful and content with Jussi's priorities and his spot on judgement about which improvement efforts benefit the most members of his user base. This is not fanboy-ism nor an unhealthy relationship with customers as another poster mistakenly suggests. It is a purposeful design and upgrade philosophy that Jussi and many users find mutually rewarding. The fact that it does not meet a particular user's specific, individualized request does not make it incorrect. To illustrate, I

    I am converting redbook FLAc or 24 bit FLAC to DSD128, ASDME5C, Snc-S and am clearly in the minority but found 4.90 a bit syrupy / warm, and am now enjoying 4.92 immensely. it may have just been my brain state the evening I ran 4.90 (nothing sounds it's best after a fatiguing day at work) but I am content with 4.92 and not feeling any desire to roll back. I'm glad many others found something special with 4.90, though. Enjoy!

    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?
