HQPlayer Settings for Holo Audio May L2
HOLO Audio MAY DAC50 minutes ago, Miska said:
Same as Spring 2, so if you use PCM mode, set DAC Bits 20 and use noise shaper like LNS15 at 1.5 MHz sampling rate. I personally stick to DSD256 output using ASDM7EC modulator.
What is the reasoning for those settings? (Other than the dac bits which I understand)
HQplayer is fantastic, and i'm curious to learn about why these settings benefit the spring.
I'd be using a network streamer that only supports 768khz. Would the desired settings other than sample rate differ in that case?

So far nobody has shown objective evidence of such. I would be interested to see though.
I've not seen any either, just that I'd seen a lot of subjective results that i2s was an improvement.
In any case the usb module has since been upgraded, and the May L2 and above uses a further improved version so I can't imagine there would be issues anymore.
