  1. Yes, but the NT Operating System Kernel is at the top. The lower the latencies, the better. An example of my audio PC: Many processes (142) are active. The less the better, an example:
  2. Just my thoughts: - If you go out with 48x256, why didn't you activate 48k DSD? - Have you checked the latencies? Look LatencyMon.
  3. I use 384kHz files. This is probably the best option for me, since I can activate 48k DSD for the Denafrips Terminator in HQPlayer. So it also depends on the DAC. šŸ˜‰
  4. It's not just about the fan noise itself. A fan generates vibrations and may transmit them to the housing and sensitive computer components. Modern fans are controlled via PWM (pulse width modulation), which switches the power on and off at a high frequency. I don't want that in my audio PC. It makes an audible difference in my system. šŸ˜‰
  5. A good thing. We look forward to reports. šŸ‘
  6. No! Outsourcing to a GPU works very well for the filters, but not for the EC modulators.
  7. For the EC modulators you need processors with a high clock frequency (at least 4GHz on two cores with stereo). Xeon processors are generally not suitable for this.
  8. There is a hint of what Taiko Audio is doing to improve the SQ: It may have something to do with network settings. In my experience, there is a lot of potential for optimization here. It starts with a fixed IP address, goes on with reduce functions in the network adapter and results in the improvement in latency. Just my thoughts that are completely independent of Roon. To clarify: I do not know what Taiko Audio does because I am not an Extreme owner.
  9. I agree with that. DSD sounds much better on my Denafrips Terminator than PCM. There are similar experiences with DACs from T + A. For example, you can use the skills of HQPlayer to convert everything to DSD. Even if the raw data comes from PCM. There are manufacturers who do this themselves in the DAC. To my knowledge, these are, for example, PS Audio or EMM Labs.
  10. The reading should be captivating. Many thanks šŸ‘ Nenon has published his prices here: You can find our prices under fis Audio PC products. It starts at around ā‚¬ 3,500,00. Every accessory is transparently linked.
  11. The answer is already in your very good explanation. šŸ‘ Depending on the setting of the CPU clock frequency in combination with undervolting, I achieve low power consumption and an acceptable heat development even with a very powerful CPU. The crucial question is, why buy an expensive, high-performance CPU when a smaller CPU is sufficient? My Opinion: Powerful CPUs have to be of a particularly high quality. As far as I know, less powerful CPUs are sometimes just waste products of these high-performance CPUs. I would therefore tend to use the top product, because then the highest processing quality is given. So why not an i9-10900K? šŸ˜‰
  12. It's the Denafrips Terminator, which can do both USB and IĀ²S: DSD1024, PCM1536 Supports On USB & IĀ²S Input. šŸ‘
  13. I envy your skills. šŸ‘ In fact, this PC audio project is designed to build something really good with high-quality "standard" components. No knowledge of electronics is required. It is not a "tinkered" solution. Everyone can replace high-quality cables, memory or PCIe cards themselves. Even the power supply is variable. You wants to connect a battery. Why not? šŸ˜‰ Regards Gabriel
  14. It's pretty much the opposite of our DIY Project High Performance Audio PC with high quality wiring.
