  1. This is a point for you. I have now tested it with: Intel® Optane™ Memory M10 Series 64GB, M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0, 20nm, 3D XPoint™ That's all right. Correct, see M.2 slot in ASUS Board with the blue Intel Optane SSD. Cloning the boot drive on Intel Optane went smoothly. The operating system (Win 10 Pro) and HQPlayer started smoothly. That is my experience too. I was streaming music from the NAS and Qobuz. Here's a closer look at Intel Optane SSD activity. When the HQPlayer is started, read and write
  2. Thank you. Be patient. At some point it will work out and it will be worth it. 👍
  3. 1. I meant, "I've thought about it ..." In fact, I've never tried it. 2. This is a thread about "M.2 NVMe SSD for OS" That with Optane came up in the discussion and I gave my thoughts on it. My speech! Since my music files are outside of the audio PC (either in the www at Qobuz or on my NAS) Optane couldn't help me. The task manager should show that in my system data on SSDs is barely read or written. Instead, what HQPlayer need is already in RAM. Optane cannot be any faster. 😉
  4. I prefer fanless systems. Not only because of any audible fan noises, but also because of the vibrations in the PC case, and because of possible electromagnetic interference. In addition, the fan speed is controlled by high-frequency PWM (the current is periodly switched on and off). However, fanless systems have the disadvantage that they cannot cool as effectively. In particular, the passive cooling of powerful graphics cards (GPU) quickly reaches its limits. Whoever plays DSD with the HQPlayer has advantages when using CUDA. The GPU takes over the convolution for the room correc
  5. My thoughts on Intel Optane. I was considering trying out Intel Optane. Due to positive test reports regarding short access times, I took a closer look at the Intel® Optane ™ SSD 905P Series. I read the installation guide and was shocked. Complexity of the setting These are settings in the BIOS and Windows that must be made in a certain sequence. And this several times. It can be done, but I prefer simple solutions. SATA controller I deactivated the SATA controller in the Audio PC. In the sense of, the fewer controllers are active, the less it can
  6. I love my two Italians Amati and Futura. They looks good and can even sing well. 😄
  7. There is no typical BIOS setting, as many parameters are important. Is it a fanless design or is it actively cooled? Is overclocking or underclocking required depending on the application? How stable is the power supply? My suggestions should therefore be used with the necessary caution. 😉
  8. I apologize for my previous inappropriate comment. Your skills are beyond question to me and I really enjoy using the HQPlayer. 👍
  9. It's actually pretty simple. Since 4.7.0 many have the problem of not being able to run ASDM7EC anymore. A skilled developer looks at the problems and doesn't waste time explaining why it has stopped working.
  10. Same here. As with 4.7.0, an unfortunate overload on two cores. Did you know that Miska is in reality an agent for the PC industry? The PC industry wants to sell its newest hardware. 😂 (A joke)
  11. I had the Denafrips Terminator for a year and now the Denafrips Terminator Plus. The upsampling always runs via HQPlayer and the DAC is operated in NOS (Non Oversampling). With the Terminator (without Plus), I liked DSD better than PCM. Now I really like PCM 1411,2kHz/1536kHz with the Terminator Plus with its beautiful timbres. DSD 256x48 still has a bit better resolution with ASDM7EC.
  12. @Nenon has already written something about it. Two further projects have developed from this, but they are not really making any headway.
  13. It depends on the operating system. Windows will always benefit greatly from updating the drivers, even if everything works. These are normal Intel drivers (I-350). The settings in the network adapter are more important. JCAT gives you a guide with the purchase. If possible, the card should be placed in the higher-quality PCIe slot, as this slot may be connected directly to the CPU. Something like the USB CARD XE with an Emerald OXCO Clock? Do you have more information? The increase in SQ was enormous with the OXCO Clock.
  14. Yours looks like a Streacom FC9 fanless chassis. This is of good quality and has the advantage that PCIe cards can be installed directly on the mainboard. I don't see any problems with installing a JCAT NET Card Femto in the first full slot. The NET Card thanks to an external 5V power supply. That can be retrofitted. The card also works without it. I have explained the internal structure of an audio PC on my homepage. A picture of it.
