  1. Hey Skip, I am not aware of the existence of a centralized document yet. It appears to be spread out across multiple threads and URLs. I would suggest that you start with the GitHub main directory link in the OP and read each sub links. Start with camilladsp and camilliadsp-config for a good overview. CamillaDSP can be run by hand (for debugging config scripts), as daemon automatically started at boot, or nested in the automatic rate switcher wrapper. I would suggest the by-hand version first until you have your scripts correct. I have not ventured into the Web Co
  2. Just wanted to share a new opensource project that I recently discovered. It runs on Windoze, Linux and Mac. I have been testing it as a plugin to ALSA in Linux and am quite impressed with it so far. Kudos to the sharp author. PulseAudio can also be configured to use it as default so all of your Linux desktop apps get the filters transparently. It creates stream and filter pipelines so it can be applied to a variety of situations. There are also provisions for remote controls that I haven't explored yet. It is in its last beta stage and soon to be a fo
  3. FWIW, this review of the Z490 mini-ITX boards indicate the MSI and Gigabyte boards have the strongest VRM implementations for OCing, but indicates it is not necessary for normal stock speeds. I wonder if the stronger VRM power designs equates to better sound when underutilized.
  4. Any feedback on your i9-10900 / ASUS machine ? I am considering updating my old machine with either the i9-10900 or i9-10900K, a Z490 board and NVMes. TIA
  5. Hi Kal, Will there be any reviews on the OKTO DAC8 coming out soon ? If so, any ETAs ? TIA
  6. Get your OPPO's while they last. Oppo's Farewell Notice Oppo has just held in it's notice Oppo Shock: Popular AV Brand Announces That 'It's Time To Say Goodbye'
  7. Has anyone used the DVDfab "Hi-Fi Audio Converter" software for ripping 2-channel audio from DVDs/Blu Rays ? If so, how does it work ? TIA DVDfab Hi-Fi Audio Converter
  8. You can't go wrong with the consistency of hard wire.
  9. Interesting video on bit depth, sample rates and filters. https://xiph.org/video/vid2.shtml
  10. It appears the ISO Regen uses this oscillator (Crystek CCHD-575) : http://www.crystek.com/crystal/spec-sheets/clock/CCHD-575.pdf From the spec sheet : Frequency Range:12 MHz to 125 MHz* Phase Jitter: (12kHz~80MHz) 82 fSec RMS Typical @ 100 MHz
  11. I am very happy to hear W4S is continuing to offer upgrade paths for their existing customers and products. Kudos to the W4S team.

    Version 20 appears to be a "feature release" versus an "upgraded Audio Quality version".
  13. I just stumbled on this. W4S is offering a mINT + Martin Logan bookshelf speaker package at the cost of just over the mINT by itself. I am not familiar with these speakers though. The speakers run @ $800/pair MSRP. https://wyred4sound.com/products/integrated-amps/wyred-4-sound-martin-logan-special-offer
  14. Take a look at the Wyred 4 Sound mINT (mini-Integrated). The integration contains stereo amplifiers, headphone amplifier, preamp and DAC. The DAC is good, but not as good as in their flagship DAC2-DSDSE. W4S offers a money-back in home trail on the mINT. You would just need to add a source, non-powered speakers and headphones. I heard it at the Long Beach, CA Audio show driving a pair of Mini-Maggies and it sounded very nice. I did not hear it with any headphones. https://wyred4sound.com/products/integrated-amps/mint Headphone Output •32Ω Load: 720mW @ 0.1% THD+N •300Ω Lo
  15. To use a DAC or Soundcard, either would need both "Line Outs" and "Amplified Headphone Outs" for your application. The Amplified "Headphone Outs" has to be sufficient to drive your headphone(s) of choice (READ: Know what Headphones you are going to use before buying the headphone amplifier). It looks like the powered speakers you are interested in take a standard line in (Stereo RCA). It is not obvious that the 02+ODAC has line outs. The O2+ODAC is also "limited" to 24/96. If you want to decode higher resolution audio content, you may want to take this into consideration b
