  1. I fully agree. I'm using Acourate for the generation of convolution files. Review: Important to know: Not only the room but also the speakers (time accuracy) are corrected. I can easily run HQPlayer Convolution without GPU! I'm using Intel Core i9-9900K.
  2. I was also skeptical of a 2-PC system. On the other hand, I thought, if manufacturers like Pink Faun had to do that, maybe it would be a bit different. For me, Control PC works with Roon Server, my music files are there on SSD, I rip CDs and create filters for room correction. The CPU utilization is low, the tasks are high. In Audio PC only audio with HQPlayer is upsampled and rendered. The CPU utilization is high but the tasks are low. The transparency and blackness in my sound has been exceptionally good ever since.
  3. I have booted HQPlayer OS directly from USB stick and do not even get 16Bit 44.1kHz with ASDM7EC stutter free to run. I think Windows 10 Pro is better than many believe. In any case, it seems to have a better grip on the utilization of the cores.
  4. In Germany, we say: What cares the oak, when the wild sow rubs against her? I hope I translated it correctly.😅 I see it all calmly. @rando What kind of PC and audio system do you operate?
  5. Yes, that works without problems. Even with the lowest latencies. The Task Manager displays the average CPU frequency 3,75 GHz. This is the advantage with hyperthreading, which always runs enough cores with 4 GHz. Therefore, the EC modulators work without dropouts and with acceptable temperature load, since I only have a slow rotating case fan.
  6. I agree. For EC modulators, no GPU is required. I don't agree with it. Even if you have not set overcloking in BIOS, you are running overclocking in software: instead of 3.6 GHz it is 4.6 GHz. 😉
  7. Hyperthreading has advantages in my system (i9-9900K). I can run ASDM7EC smoothly with most filters. The CPU utilization is about half lower than without hyperthreading.The cores speed at 4 GHz is much lower, which has a positive effect in my mostly fanless PC on the temperature. After everything I've read here, the i7-9700K has to run with much higher speed (4.7GHz). The benchmark comparison shows the higher performance of the i9-9900K vs. i7-9700K. But is also around 100 US $ more expensive. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-i9-9900K-vs-Intel-i7-9700K/3334vs3335 The picture below shows that only one Case Fan (140 mm) is active with very low rotation. The fan is off for operation without EC modulators. Conclusion: the selection of the CPU depends on the PC system and the wallet. 😁
  8. A very nice system. The CPU Intel Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz 8-Core I have synonymous and I can recommend. Likewise, I have an ASUS gaming board, which has very good components and a variety of settings. I'm using ASUS RAMCACHE III very successfully, which loads frequently used program files into the fast RAM. Even Corsair and be quiet! I equipment parts can highly recommend . My suggestion would be to streaming Music with a dedicated USB card to DAC. I'm using JCAT USB & NET Card FEMTO. Cutting down Windows 10 with AudiophilOptimzer 3.00 is certainly a good idea.
  9. Yes cirrus7 manufactures the components according to customer requirements. Write to Felix Engemann, he is very competent and obliging: [email protected]
  10. AMSDM7 + DSD 512 or ASDM7EC + DSD 256 😉 Silent Wings 3 mounted as case fan and as exhaust above on the case ceiling. It's very big, but silent.
  11. Many thanks. it is the https://streacom.com/products/fc9-alpha-fanless-chassis/. The cooling elements are included. However, cirrus7 has built it for me. The cables Neotech UPOCC 7N I have retrofitted from https://www.ghentaudio.com. And now comes a surprise. With AMSDM7 + DSD 512 there are no problems with passive cooling. ASDM7EC + DSD 256 can also be played smoothly, but with the temperature I come with over 90 ° C (194 ° F) to the limit. I've been thinking about something written in this thread and I opted for a hybrid solution. Today I installed the case fan SILENT WINGS 3. It is very big with 140mm, but it rotates slowly. Very low noise level 15.5 dB (A). It can be controlled via PWM. In diagram on the left I have specified a target curve. Up to 65 ° C the fan is off. This is sufficient for normal operation AMSDM7 + DSD 512. The fan starts with 200 rpm for the new EC modulators. The revolutions increase to 400 rpm up to 80 ° C. Inaudible! With ASDM7EC + DSD 256 I reach a maximum of 75 ° C. Now everything is OK.
  12. What do you mean, what stress gamers expect their systems? That's why I choose a gaming board: ASUS ROG Maximus XI Gene That can endure a lot. Rotating fans are definitely not for me. Anyone can see that as he wants. 😉
  13. That's a good point. Now the case should fit into my hi-fi rack, so I chose: Streacom FC9 Alpha (Black) - Desktop - micro ATX
  14. Yes in BIOS I have disabled the monitoring of the fan, otherwise comes at boot time every time an error message. Turbo Boost I use without fan. No problem. The power supply is no problem at all. But after some time I come with the new EC modulators with DSD 256 in the critical temperature range. The CPU then regulates down and at least source material from 192kHz is no longer played smoothly. I can live with that, but I did not want to leave the disadvantages unmentioned. The other modulators with DSD 512 are unproblematic in my fanless system.
