  1. Hello AudioPhil, In March 2021, I placed the order No. 2153 via shop.highend-audiopc.com. I have not yet been delivered. Since March, despite my numerous reminder emails, I have not heard anything about this order. Please tell me what is going on! Kind regards.
  2. I am using a T+A DAC 8 DSD with "poly-sinc-ext2 and ASDM7EC at 48 X 256", would you have another configuration recommendation for the T+A DAC 8 DSD?
  3. IsoTek/Blue Horizon Mains Noise Analyzer?
  4. Coming from Lush^2 and now since 6 days with the brand new Lush^3 and the "shipped" config: A: B-R, B: Beautiful, robust but aerial, clear, limpid gushing from the black, relax, very detailed, lots of space. This week, I'm an acoustic Jazz listener: cymbals, snare, voices, wind instruments, double bass e tutti frutti, in two words: Holala-WOW!!!
  5. Hello, I use the two on a "HQplayer Windows Server 2019 Standard Core" machine. From my point of view, the two complement each other. Very satisfied. Kind regards
  6. Two more points about that: With "Fidelizer + AO", Without "Load optimized defaults" in BIOS, but with Turbo Boost, Hyper-Threading, Speed-Step/Speed Shift and all the C-states enabled, no more stuttering when Upsampling to DSD512 with Multicore DSP Grayed. BUT with all off that now, when upsampling to poly-sinc-ext2/ASDM7EC/48k x 256 with Multicore DSP Grayed, the sound drop every approximatively 40 sec for one sec. So to successfully Upsample to DSD256 via poly-sinc-ext2/ASDM7EC/48k x 256 with Multicore DSP Grayed, the following do the thing: With "Fidelizer + AO", Without "Load optimized defaults" in BIOS, with Turbo Boost enabled, Hyper-Threading Disabled, Speed-Step/Speed Shift Disabled and all the C-states disabled, no more Drop. Kind regards, Gato
  7. With "Fidelizer + AO", Without "Load optimized defaults" in BIOS, But with Turbo Boost, Hyper-Threading, Speed-Step/Speed Shift and all the C-states enabled, no more stuttering when Upsampling to DSD512 with Multicore DSP Grayed. To be noted: I have also "Package c state limit" set to "C8", do you agree with this one? PS: For the rest, ISO REGEN with UltraCap LPS-1.2 switch up to “ON”, there is no "pop noise" anymore. Thank for your help! Kind regards, Gato
  8. To be noted: my initial issue was due to the "UltraCap LPS 1.2" used to energize the ISO Regen. Using ISO Regen without UltraCap LPS 1.2 eliminates the "pop" problem. Uptone has been contacted about that. For the rest: Upsampling to DSD512 with Multicore DSP Grayed: Without Fidelizer but with AO: Same stuttering Without Fidelizer nor AO: Stuttering but a bit different (light) and with one more kind of noise like a very light frying "crcrcr".

  9. The PC in question is a "Windows Server 2019 Standard Core: RAMDISK Network booted using also AudiophileOptimizer and Fidelizer. More on that: https://audiophilestyle.com/profile/30314-gato/?tab=field_core_pfield_3
  10. Hello, Oh Yes, indeed, without the ISO Regen, no more "pop noise" at all at this point in time. Now, I will also continu to verify the rest of the hardware used. To be noted, on my system, when upsampling to DSD512, if Multicore DSP is grayed, there is a lot of stuttering. So in this case, for this system, unchecked is OK. Thank you very much for your help! Kind regards, Gato
  11. Hello, With: iMac/Roon->PC machine(i7-7700K, JCAT NET Card FEMTO) / HQPlayer(v 4.3.3) Upsampling to DSD512->USB(SOtM tX-USBexp PCI express USB 3.0 with sCLK-48.0)->ISO REGEN / UltraCap LPS 1-2->T+A DAC8DSD. Since a few month (november - december 2019?), I have the following situation: When I power up the systems and begin to play music everything sound very good but after 2 to 3 hours of listening I can hear random "pop" noise coming out of the speakers. The sound is always good but those random "pop noise" are becoming more and more frequent (first every 3 to 4 minutes and then every 30 to 60 seconds). If I power down the systems wait about 1 or 2 minutes and power them up and play music, those random "pop noise" are still audible. If I power down the systems and come back, for example, the next day and I power on the systems and begin to play music everything sound very good (no "pop" noise) but after 2 to 3 hours of listening I can hear random "pop" noise coming out of the speakers. The sound is always good but those random "pop noise" are becoming more and more frequent. ... And so on. But today after entering in the random "pop noise" phase and without power down the systems, in HQPlayer settings, if I go with "...Upsampling DSD256...", there is no more unpleasant "pop" noise for about 1 to 2 hours of listening and then a "pop* may occur mainly in the 10 first seconds of a track and so on for the next tracks but those "pop" are no more systematic or frequent as before. Any idea / explanation?

  12. And now here comes the wider Soundstage...
  13. So PS-Audio Direct Stream Power Plant 15 is now running. Without particular burn-in period (about only 2 hours of listening) the improvement in SQ is massif, the most massif that I have listen to on “my” system. Everything is more, more, more, more, …. whaou: details, micro details, silky highs, honey mids, mother earthed bass. Investment is “very" high, but if I should redo all from the start, this one is the beginning of the birth of the way/sound. I suggest to each one to try a high-performance AC power regeneration station, PS-Audio was just my “budget” choice, there is others.
  14. I am considering a "PS-Audio Direct Stream Power Plant 15", any advice or information is welcome: Context: https://audiophilestyle.com/profile/30314-gato/?tab=field_core_pfield_3
  15. Yes, after more reading, i9-9900KS seems to be the way to go. To be noted that Roon will running on another system. Thank you for your post.
