  1. Thank you for the insight. I am familiar with that track, I’ll give it a listen. I am also aware that Željko needs specific and descriptive feedback, the reason I was asking you to elaborate on « bass » and « details ». Great you already shared that with him. I understand Željko was concerned, and he should be. When users here express dissatisfaction or disappointment they can be really helpful providing elaborated feedback (preferably sharing here or by opening a ticket @ Euphony). After every update there are never details about changed sound quality, and IF something cha
  2. Really fascinating how you recap all the different Euphony versions. When you mention regarding 1102 “Bass slightly loose, details a little less than optimal”, it makes me wonder what/if other Euphony versions improve on this specific feature? I assume for you that would be the ultimate Euphony version (and it’s ok even if that’s only for July 2021 ;-).) In other words, what version did you like more with a tighter base, and what version has details optimal? Or did you not hear that yet with previous versions? That would be great feedback (for Z). I am aware it is syste
  3. USA to Europe 3 Prong Plug Adapter should work. If you are handy you can do it yourself. No worries, this is a modification of the short (cheap) cable between power adapter( up to 240 V) and wall outlet and won’t affect sound quality. What will Improve sound is a good dc cable, like the dc4 you purchased. Cheers
  4. * CPU utilization % and temperature are the same while playing the FLAC or WAV file in Euphony Stylus with ramroot (see previous post). I definitely give it a good listen with other tracks.
  5. Interesting! In my quest to optimize local files to play with Euphony Stylus I tried XiSRC (free*). The same company provides MusicScope (also free**) to examine the characteristics of files. MusicScope allowed me to visually compare the original FLAC (33Mb) vs, the WAV provided by Bandcamp (50.4Mb) and the WAV I converted myself from FLAC with XiSRC (also 50.4Mb) . In MusicScope all 3 look identical. Soundwise, at first listen, I can not confirm a difference between the versions of the selected file. This might go beyond the subject here (you can also PM me) and I would like to e
  6. Thank you for pointing this out. I did try to compare FLAC vs. WAV/AIFF in the past, downloaded both versions from the same album (Bandcamp), but it was not conclusive. Also my system might not be resolving enough. I will give it a try again, my system evolved a little over time, it could be worth it.
  7. That's what I thought, same here. Best results with local files. In my case all FLAC on a Synology NAS +LPS > switch > 30ft Cat7 > streamer.
  8. Thanks. For these listening sessions are you playing local files or streaming files?
  9. @NenonWhile you have an "eraser" could you also use it for the way too long last April 15th discussion that led to a separate post from Marcin? No hard feelings but it seemed it made many feel uncomfortable, having no place here. Disagreement is ok but THIS could have been discussed in private. Enjoy your holidays, I love reading this thread.
  10. I appreciate your descriptions of how the sound is evolving through versions. You improved without (!) ramroot, so now sound quality depends less on RAM. To better understand, would you mind sharing what type of RAM you are (not with 421 !) using and also what other type of memory to run Stylus is attached to your mobo? In the situation above you do streaming, SSD or NAS? I looked in your setup details but you did not mention. If you did somewhere else please link to that part of the thread. Thanks.
  11. Ok I understand now. I know how to revert and switch between 2 versions within the same install, but not more than 2. Many thanks!
  12. Thanks and sorry to insist, it's out of curiosity, and maybe one day soon my system will evolve so it becomes practical to know. I understand you have no USB drive. Do you keep more than 2 versions of Euphony on your Optane 32 Gb?
  13. I mentioned copy-paste as an example. Do not know if it even could work. But how do people here in a practical way compare 3 or more different versions of Euphony without going through the whole hassle of a new installation each time? They run each version from thumb drive only? Like stick 102 in , listen, pull out, stick 117 in, pull out, stick 108 in etc. For example I have the last version on ssd with reverse option to 108. Standard configuration allows for easy bi-version switch. But how do I add for example 102 to this duo for comparison? Today we have different users with clearly
  14. Is that also how you would copy-paste a previous version of Euphony like 102 or 108 into one of the 4 partitions (EUPHONY_SYSTEM)? Or do you need the original Euphony installer files? I do not have any Linux knowledge but I also would like to compare in a quick and easy way between more than two versions of Euphony like some of you, but I need some guidance. I do have different USB thumb drives with 102 and 108 and 117. If this goes beyond general interest please pm me. Thanks in advance!
  15. I recently did the same. 16Gb Optane card + adapter card in only PCIe slot of my (2017) SuperMicro mobo. Euphony will recognize the Optane card and create partitions and install the OS on it. BUT I could not get my system to boot from it (after removing usb drive). I also got in touch with SuperMicro, they confirmed there is no reason it should not work, just let the BIOS know there is a card in PCIe slot. Please let me know if you get it to work.
