    probably polysyncLP but unfortunatly there is no such kind of filter that will change the nature of the ESS sabre dac , some like it like that some don't...

    something i have no answer , why 2s filters sounds less good than non-2s ones ? one of my preferate filter with EC filters. is Polysinc-LongLP but not really usuable as at every change of sampling rate i must wait 2minutes before it start. the 2s start fast but unfortunatly the sound seems not the same.. πŸ™‚

    long time polysync lp DSD5v2 DSD512 adept , i must say that with the T+A DAC8 the Polysynclp ASMD5ec DSD256 is really a game changer , for the price of the HQP3 update to HQP4 i have a brand new dac . great job Miska πŸ‘

    i thought that for DSD to DSD conversion it was the IRR or FIR modulator who was in charge not the PCM to DSD , i was wrong :)

    hi , Miska thank you for your wonderfull HQP 4 very usefull during these long days home πŸ™‚ i was wondering if it would be possible in future update to have a separate bit rate setting for PCM TO DSD and DSD to DSD as this wie could have 512fs with DSD when using 256 EC for PCM ... stay home..

    donβ€˜t forget to try ASDM5EC donβ€˜t know why but on the T+A it sounds more natural to me :)

    i didn't know that but running it drectly from Roon was not as pleasing as with HQP making is making his DSD magic before πŸ™‚

    i'm joking , it was not a disaster at all for the T+A but it was interesting to try two technology of converter with all the settings possible , direct , DSD upsampled , PCM to DSD , DSD to PCM with all the filter of HQP during this afternoon . the Dave was very good with PCM set to 768K as given by Miska. but for my friend and i both Dac feeded with PCM to DSD256 with ASDM5EC was far above all the other settings. and for the differences between the two dacs there is more here than just dac technology , the power supply and analog output of both dacs must be different too ..

    thanks Miska , that's waht i have done first to compare the Dave with my T+A DSD8 , and it 's already very good . i had no opinion with Chord dac as i never heard one before. and i shouldn't do it .. with DSD 256 polysync Lp asdm5EC on both dac , the Dave of my friend was unfortunatly better than mine. but i prefer to try to forget it the next days not to spend more money ...

    is there a particular DSD filter/modulator settting for a Chord Dave Dac ?
  13. you are certainly right , i really like the T+A and HQplayer i use now polysync long LP DSD5EC DSD256 , i have a InTona usb isolator too. and the DAc driectly attack a 2A3 amplifier or a Pass Aleph3 ( during the 2A3 mods 😊) my speaker are DIY with 12" Field Coil speaker , no filter.. so i can hear every litttle change in HQP , computer, or electronic side.. as i said perhaps i need a preamp with the more r"analog" and relaxed sound i can get with some old Dacs ( call it distorsions if you like ) . i will try a Transformer based Passive preamp soon to use the Fixed output of the T+A and will report if there is a change in my " too clean" feeling ....
  14. sure life was better yesterday , just because i was younger but i have compared my T+A DSD8 in DSD512 with old machine in my loca lshop ( Wadia 2000, Sonic frontiers SFD1 , ML 360S, ) the Mark levinson was the worst even in 24/96K , but hte Wadia 2000 was very sweet sounding with tons of details with a simple Mutec USB /spdif converter. the T+A in PCM was So So in compare. sure in DSD512 with HQP and Polysinc long LP , DSD5 V2 the T+A was in another league everywhere but has a " too clean taste" that seems to me unreal. ( perhaps i just need a noisy tube preamp after the T+A to get what i want πŸ˜‰)
  15. the middle age crisis certainly here , i wonder what dac to try after the T+A , not that i taught that it doesn't sound marvellous in DSD512 with HQP but sometimes i remember old machine like some Theta , Wadia 2000, Cello reference dac , EAD DSP9000 etc.. and if they were surely more technically limiited ( 16/18 bits at 44/48K for the most) i liked the sound of them , you can say more meet on the bones type or it was just good sounding distorsions i don't know... so i wonder what kind of dac could fit in this categorie nowadays ?
