  1. Consider 1. the upsides of the new mac M1 & 2. the usefulness of an NAA to mac upsampling ie optical rendu or say hqp naa.

    So then, with the macmini M1, I assume down-sampling to 128 from 256 is similarly demanding? Otherwise, a 2-stage down- then up- could work ... inelegant though.

    Update with new macmini M1 - now able to do all pcm to 256 with ASDM7EC/48, polysinc ext2, including 24-192 ... care of simply changing buffer from default to 100. Go figure ... Also dsf128 to 256 fine, leaving only the puzzle of dsf256 files which don’t work (tried 5EC etc). Odd, this final hurdle.

    I just use ‘screen sharing’ on the MBP to control the mac mini M1, plus the HQPD app on iPad for remote music selection.

    Hmm ... I want! ... can you show your full HQP settings please?

    But I am able to do 96/48 to ASDM7EC without issue ...

    Very pleased with the newly arrived mac mini M1. Does ASDM7EC/48 to 256 using polysinc ext2 with everything so far, except 24-192 which needed either ASDM5EC or easier filter. Remains to try dsf128 & dsf256 files. Then 2 channel convolution ...

    How is it going with pcm 24-96, 24-192 to dsd256?

    Keep us posted on developments! ... close to getting the M1 Mini.

    Yep, as per sig, ultraRendu NAA.

    re RME ADI2 dac (v.1), anyone know the effect of its standby function on its internal clocks? Better to leave permanently ON?

    Entirely ‘explicable’ ... for those of us inclined to apple simplicity & wary of the learning curve + cost of heading into pc construction ...

    ‘broken’ means ...? Seem to be NAA users among the 4.9.0 admirers.

    Thanks - was going to wait for the next gen macmini m1, but ext2, 7ec, dsf256 on my rme is definitely sufficient. Only caveat is convolution, though just 2 channel.
  15. /& btw, I just checked the ER manual & realised I’d used an incorrect connection sequence - hadn’t powered down the ER before switching to EXT clock & then powering up clock followed by ER. So wasted a day or so burn in time, though not really been listening. Clock I suppose will have had stabilising time, after shipping travails.
  16. Don’t think I understand this ...? My just arrived BG7TBL has 3 outputs - all 75ohm & I assumed square wave.
  17. We all know there are some who get progressively inquisitorial about these new prospects on the horizon - I’ve developed a warm n cosy all-is-right-with-the-world expectation. A good thing, in this bizarre world!
  18. Any specific measurements available yet? ... duh! just re-read previous page, ... already covered - thanks Alex.
  19. Well, here in Oz that “slow boat from China” turned out to be a slow local customs-distribution nexus ie the shipping details that came thru the day of delivery showed said clock sitting in Melbourne from end of Nov thru the whole of Dec - slow boat was ~2 weeks, local Oz was ~5 weeks. We do have a tit-for-tat ‘cold war’ going on ...
  20. Yes, back to mundane on-topic matters ... I’m still waiting on my clock, ordered mid-Nov ...

    @MiskaRe above, with using the RME dac, is the cpu demand so much greater for the 48x option?
  22. Latest on Sonore site ... which always indicates “OSX v1”.
  23. Maybe wandering off topic, ... but - noted some time back I was getting a faint ticketty-tick-tick on only dsf files, but not pcm even though my HQP settings are at upsampling to dsf128 for everything - into RME dac. Only bothered when in soft passages, particularly classical piano etc. Range of dsf files sources - sacd from Oppo using mac OSX Sonore + DLs from elsewhere using Sonore to rip isos, plus DLed dsf files etc ... Got round to investigating & the fix was to change HQP, tickbox from 48x128 to 44.1x128!! But pcm upsampling to dsf & below .wv
