    I hear exactly the same difference. Anyone have any tips for getting Sync L to work on 8700k without dropouts? I’m presently just using Windows to test with T+A DAC 8 DSD as I need the new firmware before the DAC will take DSD512 in Linux. I switched to ‘high performance’ mode in Windows as Jussi suggested, but stutter remains Thanks
  2. "New Copy install function' - sounds good... can more details be provided? Gentoo Player working great on my new x86 server by the way.

    Definately confirmed working in Windows, DAC 8 DSD display confirming DSD512. I downloaded the driver today, so don't know how it compares with older versions. Windows Home 10 (all latest updates installed). Perhaps you're thinking about the DSD 128 limitation under Linux?

    Thanks to @AnotherSpin for the heads up - settled on Sync-M and DSD7. In my setup this has almost the same soundstage as Closed-16M (which originally got me into HQ Player), but there is less shrillness to it and vocals are presented in a slightly more forward way... which I like.

    Thanks - I reinstalled the drivers and this time ASIO driver now visible... Must have been some error with the driver install (this is a clean install of windows). But very interesting - Playback does occur when using the ASIO (SDM Pack = none) driver, but it is choppy unlistenable. If I enable DOP under SDMPack, then playback does not occur. So back to WASAPI, DOP enabled - Sync M and SDS7 DSD512 playback smooth as butter. So I am conused with the ASIO driver behaviour... maybe this is why I have been having problems in Linux? Another member here told me that T+A DAC 8 DSD was natively supported in Gentoo Player/Audiolinux etc... (I couldn't get output at 64, 128 or higher and am unsure if 512 works without updating the firmware anyway).

    Direct SDM is HQPlayer passthrough settings - direct with no upsampling as suggested. Native DSP is what T+A refer to the DAC 8DSD beign capable of, which I presume means no DOP...

    Thats what I thought...In Windows using the official driver only WASAPI driver is visible in HQ Player, no AISO (which is visible on Linux / Mac) ... should there be an AISO driver in Windows? It's working fine using DOP, but I guess it's somewhat compromised...

    Cheers - one would presume that 'native DSD' means it doesn't need DOP. Obviously it does. Shame T+A don't put this in their manual.

    Another question has also now arisen - I've tried this on HQPlayer embedded and also HQPlayer Windows. HQPlayer always defaults to PCM, I can never get it to output DSD. Settings are as follows:

    HQPlayer embedded works great as a UPnP AV Renderer, but I want to run the same thing in Windows (T+A DAC 8 Drivers allow full sample rate in Windows). Any way of getting the UPnP AV Renderer functionality in Windows?
  11. The WBF topic has had a few posts since Nenons reference - Taiko have stated their reasons...developing their own software for ultimate control and sound quality of their ecosystem... great stuff. I don’t think they’re necessarily doing it to outmode Roon. Plenty of folks have unrevealing HiFi systems where I’m sure that differences in software are not that apparent. Nice idea/request floated on there as well of potentially releasing this software as a wider product for non-extreme owners to use. Definitely up my street if sound quality is #1. I’m still interested in what the Roon tweaks are through. I might try booting an entire image of Windows into RAM and see how that sounds.
  12. The Taiko thread is amazing... ”The other thing I learned is that this Roon modification made by Emile to my Extreme could be operable to non Extreme but Roon users so stay tuned” I hope we can find out what the tweak is... I may actually try Roon if it’s that good. Also, which software packages can be used to load music (or buffer general network traffic) into memory first?
  13. I'll give it a go - my trouble is that I only have one M2 slot.
  14. Can't see if anyone has asked this, but is Gentoo Player ok to run dual boot e.g. use clover bootloader, GP on one partition, Windows on another partition of the same drive? Thanks
