  1. Interesting! You made a lot of effort. With this setting you have at least reduced the latency. MHz: 2800 CL: 17 = Calculated nanoseconds: 12.14 😉
  2. I'm not sure if Apacer with ECC should be built into computers without ECC. They have disadvantages because of the high latencies: MHz: 2666 CL: 19 Calculated nanoseconds: 14.25 And they don't have a heat sink. There are good alternatives, for example G.Skill RipJaws V black DIMM kit 16GB, DDR4-3200, CL14-14-14-34 with 8.75ns. I consider low latencies to be one of the key factors behind high SQ. But everyone may see it differently.
  3. Interesting! I have problems with Euphony playing NAA with HQPlayer 4 Embedded 4.24.0. NAA T + A SDV 3100 HV USB are displayed correctly. Roon does not show any errors, but the progress bar does not change. And there is no music. 🤔
  4. Me too! 👍 In image processing, Gaussian filters are used to smooth or soften the image content. In fact, I get the impression that the music is smoother. Even so, the instrument separation and resolution is excellent. The bass is wonderfully accentuated. I like it best for 44.1/48 poly-sincgauss-xla: Apodizing extra long Gaussian polyphase sinc filter with extremely high attenuation. Optimal time frequency response. For SDM outputs, processing is two stages with 16x intermediate rate. The computing power is quite high for the DSD256 / ASDM7EC, but still in
  5. Thank you very much for this information. I will watch the market. Maybe there are cheaper used ones.
  6. What do you do when you move (new room) or buy new headphones / speakers?
  7. Is the CPU multiplier set to Auto? If so, try a fixed assignment for all cores, for example 42 (4.2GHz).
  8. During the boot process, high current peaks can overload weak power supplies. The boot process is aborted or repeated. This can destroy the motherboard. Which CPU are you using?
  9. These are pretty high latencies: MHz: 3200 CL: 22 Calculated nanoseconds: 13.75 I prefer RAM with CL latency up to 8.8ns. Probably not available from the Apacer brand. justmy2cents
  10. Clicks and pops are typical signs of data transfer latency problems. Just run the free LatencyMon tool. Sometimes there are old drivers that need to be updated.
  11. I have a pretty ingenious DAC from T+A SDV 3100 HV. The DAC has installed NAA from Signalyst (Jussi Laako) internally. Since I use the HQPlayer in the fis Audio PC, a perfect transmission is guaranteed. The sound is fantastic. I've never had a better DAC. An impression: I just tried it with Euphony DSD 1024. Runs absolutely stable.
  12. Transceiver Startech 1000BASE-EX SFP -SM LC-40KM 👍 works very well and is not on the compatibility list.
  13. Welcome to the club. Unfortunately, Finisar FTLX1475D3BTL doesn't work in my X2522 either. But it works well in the 10GTek. 😂 I don't understand why.
  14. That's a really good point. Neither one nor the other in my setup. I am using NAA with the HQPlayer. The specialty is the Solarflare XtremeScale X2522 NIC, which is powered directly from the motherboard. Could that explain why Taiko ATX works so well in my system?
  15. Either that is the solution or instead of a good mid-range LPS like Keces P8, high-end power supplies like Paul Hynes SR7 or Sean Jacobs DC4 are used instead. I hope someone try it because I don't have this power supplys. To try to give a rating (more * are better): ***** 2 Keces P8 + Taiko 500W ATX **** 1 Keces P8 + Taiko 500W ATX * 2 Keces P8 + HDPLEX 400 ATX I feel the difference between Taiko Audio and HDPLEX is very big. 👍
