  1. Bob's comments there are from 1989... Things MAY be different 3 decades later... Or maybe still the same.
  2. Yes and that's the way it should be. The only reason I brought up technically worse vs subjectively better (and the other way around) is because you were discussing the technical details of jitter. I wouldn't ask the question if we're just having a purely subjective discussion.
  3. But how do you know the one that sounds subjectively better to you, is actually not technically worse? I only ask because you are discussing technical details/workings of SPDIF...
  4. @Miska do you have any DSD related pops with your Spring2, using your HQP OS image as NAA? When using your headphones setup?
  5. The good technical info isn't in this Vaporware thread. It is here: https://audiophilestyle.com/ca/reviews/mqa-a-review-of-controversies-concerns-and-cautions-r701/ And here: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30572-mqa-technical-analysis/
  6. Still error on my part. I forgot EC modulators won't work at DSD512. Everything is working ok with v4.13 with my i9-9900K, as before.
  7. So pre-ringing is very important for this? So minimum phase with no pre-ringing is bad?
  8. I use it for this forum, for 3 other forums, for my NAS, for Amazon, for Facebook, Skype/Microsoft. Plus Google.
  9. Good point - I wasn’t aware. Yes grab one asap then.
  10. Nice! I would still wait 6 months, in case there is a revision (or "stepping" number) like the 9900K had.
  11. My 9900K runs HQP Embedded EC modulators at DSD256 and runs Roon Server, without any issues, for a few months now. But with 9900KS coming soon (soon-ish?) if one can hold off a few months, I would just wait a bit. Unless you found a 9900K for a really really cheap deal.
  12. Have you considered the coming i9-9900KS ? It might be better for HQP with all cores running at 5GHz - especially with the EC modulators and if you want to run another audio program at the same time on the same machine, like Roon (example only).
  13. Yep. I was never able to reproduce the Mojo white noise blast with my Hugo2 - even fed PCM705/768kHz. So more reason for me to guess Mojo2 should be better in that regard.
  14. I've had that blast whenever I tried to feed Mojo PCM768kHz (with HQPlayer). That white noise blast is never fun with headphones! I enjoy HQPlayer with other DACs - I stopped using HQP with Mojo. With Mojo I use TOSlink input and it's great, up to PCM 192kHz no issues.
