  1. Any word from the developers regarding testing on the beta versions of Windows 11? Audiophile Optimizer @AudioPhil or Fidelizer @Windows X Cannot see anything on here even though it’s not meant to be coming till October, which will some be upon up, so it would be interesting to know if anything is happening in the background Cheers, 🙂
  2. I know when I’ve tried this option on JRiver, I feel a part of the musical timing is compromised. So I’ve kept it unchecked. In fact I have everything switched off where possible and allow my DAC to work with the signal that is sent. I’ve found it products a far better sound that allowing JRiver to manipulate it.
  3. Hi Phil Hope you and Claudia are well and keeping safe through the Pandemic. Just a curiosity question, have you anything in the pipeline with moving forward with AudiophileOptmizer 3.00? Cheers, Shane
  4. So I’ve just found out the UK site for HDTracks has been closed. What are others using as I’ve taken a look at the US site and everything I click is not available in the U.K. market 😞
  5. Hi all, it’s been a little while since I posted anything, but just upgraded to 3.0 and even though I’ve only had an hours play time with it since installed, what a difference. More transparency, sound elevated stronger bass too. if you haven’t already made the upgrade, do support Phil, don’t delay, it really is brilliant. Loving the extra shell too, now I can open that to do a reboot or shutdown my system has the latest installed versions of windows 10 Pro, Fidelizer Pro, jRiver and Process Lasso on it and have seen no problems
  6. I’ve heard 8.3 is coming soon, so if your unsure about it, I’d wait until it’s launch as it seems Microsoft has changed a few bits on W10 which has altered the way it sound (or at least that what some are saying) myself, I’ve used it for quite some time and have found it to vastly improve the audio performance. I do use it in conjunction with AudioOptimizer and Process Lass which I feel does benefit musical playback too
  7. Hi all, as I have a quite a few DVD, blu-ray audio music disc’s which I’ve converted into wav files, are there any programs out there which enable you to check that the software being used to archive these onto the HDD are doing their job correctly. I can see that HDTracks uses a program called “bitter” and wondering if others have tried it to check there files? cheers,

    Process Lasso

    having used process lasso for a quite a while, I found that running it in bitsum high performance mode together with selecting the program you wish to use for audio in real time. I also isolated that program so it runs in a single core mode 0 and everything else shares 2/3 with fidelizer running on core 1. I also upped the memory for my audio program. But apart from that, I’ve not dabbled any further I also know that fidelizer also runs the audio program in real time and single core mode now which must mean it’s a good thing As I only use this PC for playing audio via
  9. As all cables are basically aerials, unwanted interference can be a problem and although a digital cable is either sending information or not, I would surmise that the shielding on the Fisual cable is doing it job properly. On another note, I would try and find out where the unwanted interference is coming from as you may further improve what you have already experienced
  10. Yeah, the soundstage was further improved allowing me to better place where record producer wanted the band members. As for frequencies and textures, I didn’t detect anything
  11. I use the signature aray at home and had tried it against the c-line. At home, this cable easily delivered better placement, yet when I tried it on a LMS (lesser musical system), it was almost indistinguishable to the c-line cable, which was a little alarming considering the price differences (LMS: i5 Laptop, JRiver, Arcam a39, teac UD-501 and Kef R700, Chord cabling - Music: Standard CD (accurate rip - wav files) plus 96/24 & 192/24 files) So, if I was struggling to experience a difference on a LMS. I would say that in order to experience a better result, you’d need the right
  12. I played around with three cables, one was a basic printer cable worth a couple of quid, another was chord C-USB and the other was the Signature ARAY. Basic cable worked fine all be it a little to bright for my liking C-USB removed the brightness from the audio as was extremely pleasing to hear Signature ARAY brought a level of placement to the instruments that I hadn’t noticed before Did try all three cables with a differing system located in another location and found it very difficult to hear the difference between the C-USB and Signature ARA

    Fidelizer 8.0

    Your system and usage is similar to mine, although you have a higher processor and a little more memory. musically using JRiver with Fidelizer will make a massive difference to your setup and with movies, it makes a difference to the audio to (you will have to choose which program your going to use with Fidelizer before hand as it tunes itself for that program - simply run Fidelizer and select which program you want to run and restart) To avoid this I would recommend building a multi boot system enabling you to use a clean install for JRiver and another for your normal windows ope
  14. I run AO, Fidelizer 8.0 and Process Lasso and I also use jRiver which I run in shell mode as I find that running Fidelizer running in shell mode always cause a few startup glitches. So with yours, I suggest using one of other the option for shell mode so long as it is listed. As for the setting, mines maxed out on all the settings, I also have Process Lasso running the programs I want I to use running in real time. I think some some of the setting with Fidelizer and Process Lasso as starting to cross over if you have the one core option selected for music
  15. 2.20 Beta 6 Installed on a W10 PC with Fidelizer, JRiver & Process Lasso. Everything seems to be running perfectly. Shell mode with JRiver 64bit went without any issues, re-run everything and no other issues. Big thumbs up Phil
