  1. Mike, I believe I'm using the same power supply as you, the Keces P-8A Ultra Linear PS. Thanks! --Marc
  2. @BCRich Thanks for your impressions! I ordered a Euphony Summus myself. It was delivered yesterday and it's awesome! A huge step up from the Euphony PTS. I won't have any serious listening time available until this weekend, but I'm very happy with the brief time I've spent with it. Whoo! --Marc
  3. @BCRich, any additional impressions on the Euphony Summus? It looks really nice and it was recently reviewed and highly recommended by Positive Feedback.
  4. Wow, definitely do not play around with Ramroot until you read the KB article! I turned the option on while I was using Euphony Stylus. Big mistake! I thought I bricked my Euphony install, but fortunately, ลฝeljko came to my aid as soon as I requested assistance.

    HQ Player

    I just installed HQPlayer Desktop 4.10 on my Mac. Tried the new modulators. They worked okay. Then tried to run older settings (Closed form 16) and crash, crash, crash. Switch to Windows and install 4.10. Try to run Closed form 16 again. Crash, crash, crash. It can't do it for some reason. Most settings fail. Jussi, did you save a copy of HQPlayer 4.0.4 (was that the last version) somewhere?
  6. Yay! Finally, someone has successfully booted a 2018 Mac Mini into Linux... https://www.reddit.com/r/macmini/comments/b3b972/boot_linux_on_mac_mini_2018/

    HQ Player

    I'm having issues with clicking/popping noises when using HQPlayer 4.0 on my Mac mini, whether I'm running MacOS or Windows 10. I am experiencing the clicks when upsampling to DSD or PCM, even at the lowest settings. [EDIT: Never mind...it was my equipment chain.]
  9. HQPlayer and Euphony are both relatively pricey, but you get great sound and great support with your purchase. I think they're worth it myself. Now that I've heard how good my system can sound, I wouldn't be satisfied without including them in my chain. But yes, a discounted bundle purchase or a group purchase would be nice.
  10. Not to mention the PTS is now $200 cheaper than when I bought it! ๐Ÿค”
  11. So you're asking what's in the special sauce? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  12. Good news! The Mac Mini can do native DSD512, at least the less demanding filters. I spent a few hours fiddling with the settings, but had to stop because I have other stuff to do. What was weird is that the Mini really struggled with upsampling to DSD512 for the beginning of the first song-- heat going up to 100C and CPU usage at 100% -- but then things settled down and the heat went back down to 60C and the CPU usage went down to 50% or so. Maybe the initial conversion is the hard part? I had buffering set at 250ms.
  13. I sent an email to Arthur letting him know of all the recent interest in Euphony on this forum. I'm sure he'll drop by soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. As Consuela would say, "No...no...no." You, sir, do not actually own a new Mac Mini. I do. ๐Ÿ˜I have tried this "solution." It doesn't work at all. You cannot install Linux or boot from a linux hard drive at this point. I am working with Euphony Audio, which makes a Linux-based audiophile OS, to try to get this to work. Their engineering team has not any luck so far, and I have not seen any proof in an online forum or news post showing that it's possible.
