  1. Same here…. Using the regular Sablon USB cable with Jcat xe usb card without any issue. It is highly recommended!
  2. Totally agree ! Big bang for the buck......
  3. Hi, I am also using the same combo to power the Xeon server. Few days ago, I grounded the LPS to Tripoint Troy and the end result is very promising. BTW, I am using Nordost Valhalla 1 Power Cord for the LPS.
  4. Yes ....I am using your unregulated LPS on Taiko ATX too....... no issue at all and sounds very impressive.......
  5. Hi, XXHighEnd works very well with WS2019 Core, AO3 and PL even during the “unattended mode” of XXHighEnd. With respect to CPU affinity, I have tried many different combinations and the current setting indeed produces the best SQ I ever have. Later last week, I even moved ‘XXHighEnd folder’ from Optane 4800x (OS drive and tied to CPU0) to Optane 905P 1.5 ( music files storage and tied to CPU 1), and there was another major improvement in terms of background darkness and transient. Regarding the XXHighEnd Engine, it is vital for SQ and is necessary for XXHighEnd player. It works well with AO3 too. If you are using Sage C621, please try XXHighEnd and let us know what you think. vhs
  6.

  7. I had the demo version of XXHighEnd installed in my music server few days ago and immediately got the licensed version on the day after. 😃 Configuration of my music server is as follows: Hardware: Xeon Scalable 4214 (12/24) x2 Asus SAGE C621 Apacer RDIMM 4G x 12 Optane 4800x 375G (OS) - CPU0 Optane 905P 1.5T (music storage) - CPU1 JCAT XE USB Card w/ Sablon Audio 2020 USB Cable Taiko Audio dc-dc ATX powered by Soul Analogue unregulated LPS Thixar and Stillpoints Ultra 2 for vibration control Software: WS2019 Core w/ AO3 and Timer Resolution Process Lasso HQP Version 4 and Jriver Ver 27 I am just so amazed by the sound quality singing from the XXHighEnd 😃...........Density..........Transient............Bass and Treble Extension ....................It is astonishing !!! 😃
  8. Taiko Audio DC-DC Atx........boiling for 300 hrs now...... amazing already........
  9. This is my goal too....Topk
  10. Hi, XE card gives sound improvement against onboard USB. Yes...AO3 works on dual Xeon... vhs
  11. Hi Ilona, I am using P4800x 375G for OS and 905P 1.5T for music files storage. Even for music filesstorage, using Optone 905P still benefits.... Hope it helps...... vhs
  12. Optane P4800x PCIe with Intel VMD next level up should be Optane P5800x......but haven't tried yet vhs
  13. Hi Nenon, Any further news about Taiko Audio DC-DC Atx? Thanks. vhs
