    This makes no sense at all. The filters/math has not changed between 3 and 4. Rather, the extra features from embedded have been brought in. I guess this is why Miska has repeatedly not commented on sound quality differences between the 2.....

    Has there been any change to NAA? Suddenlthg cant see any device on ver 3 or 4 Desktop.

    Miska, most dacs have their own internal SRC and resample to their own intrinsic rate, as well as apply their own filters to the incoming signal. Does this negate the processing done in HQP to some extent? I always wonder if people with say a PS Audio DS dac get the same benefit of using HQP?

    I use HAF filters in pipeline matrix in HQP. To me it sounded better than having the HAF filters in Roon. This is with upsampling to DSD256.

    I had this problem even with "auto rate family" unchecked when upsampling to 44.1k x256. Sometimes would get pops between tracks of different base rates. If using Roon create a custom upsample and then upsample all 48 multiples in Roon to 24/352.8 before sending to HQP. That fixed all 48k (and multiples) to 44.1k dsd issues in hqp.

    What are we referring too when filters are described as short or long?
  7. Ah, this is interesting. I guess theoretically the electronic panel can be replaced/upgraded with the inevitable progress in technology. Not locked into "legacy" hardware.
  8. Fantastic review - as you always deliver Mitcho. Enjoyed reading it! Couple of questions - when you talk about positioning the speakers close to the back wall - it looks like one is actually up against a glass window. Does glass - as opposed to a traditional wall surface - effect the sound in any way? Also, as well as getting rid of dac/pre/amplifier/cables etc - does this system mean you can ditch unsightly room treatments as well?

    Can HQPE run off a USB stick?

    I concur! Is something like hqp embedded ever likely to be possible in windows? Also, any chance of making it easier to switch matrix pipeline filters with something like presets?

    So on windows, I uninstall the current version first, then when I install 3.23 I use the same key?
  12. I really enjoyed reading this review, look forward to seeing more from Mitcho! How would the Kii compare to the Devialet Phantoms that were reviewed previously? They have similar concepts.

    Can I ask how you are getting Accourate convolver to output through HQP? Would love to use Acourate Flow with HQP upsampling

    I have a friend who needs a car to drive off road. He spends his time arguing with Ford that they should redesign/rebuild the Mustang to suit his needs.....

    What dac do you have? What pcm rate does it accept? Sounds like no point for you to use any dsp.
