About Me

  1. Hello Folks Today six years ago the very first public version of the AudiophileOptimizer went online, so happy happy birthday AO! 🎂 And here we are, six years and thirtheen versions later going for it one more time! 😎 But this is only the thirteenth official version, in fact between AudiophileOptimizer 2.20 and 3.00 more than 450 internal versions have been compiled while working on it for almost 10 months.The beta phase was around 4 months long letting the feedback from almost 100 testers further shape and finetune the final version of the AudiophileOptimizer 3.00. So as you can imagine this has been a lot of work and this post will highlight many details about it. We've put a lot of links to other posting where you can read much more detailed information about those specific topics. AO 3.00 is faster than any previous version. It is actually a LOT faster. On systems with slow drives, lets say CF cards for example, it could be a pain launching up AO, it took very long time to start. This is a story of the past now... All this blazing fast speed is due to the new engine we have been working for months... This does not only make things much faster for the end-user, it also makes coding and testing AO much faster. Compiling all components (AO, ST, AS, Uninstaller & Setup) took around 17 minutes before the new engine. With the new way of things compiling all modules takes roughly 3-4 Minutes. Imagine you have to do this process a 100 times in a short frame of time... The new engine will also help greatly in the future to adapt AO to new operating systems. As you know in the past a new OS versions always ment months of work to have all working again for the new OS and maintaning functionality for the old ones. With the new engine a new OS will be adapted much faster. Another advantage is that what has been achieved for one OS can now be easily and almost all the time be achieved for all the other OS'es as well. Example, AO 2.20 could enable Device Manger, but only on Server 2016 and not for 2012 R2. AO 3.00 uses the new engine and the result is that we now have the device manager enabled through setup.exe on all three supported server OS's, meaning 2012 R2, 2016 and 2019. Microsoft makes each Server Core version tighter and smaller. This is for various reasons, they want to lessen the codebase which means less surface for attacks. It also means less downtime of server since they need less updates to be patched and so on. This process of making the OS even smaller and lighter has a price, and the price is functionality. So with each iteration of Windows Server in Core it got trickier to have your media player and especially the Audio stack working again. Bringing back the WASAPI Architecture to Windows Server 2016 was an adventure that took place over three years, so it wasn't exactly easy to accomplish that. With Windows Server 2019 the method of Server 2016 did no longer work and again a lot of time and effort had to be spent to make WASAPI in Core mode available again. Windows 10 keeps changing every six months, for the good and the bad. Nevertheles the AudiophileOptimizer 3.00 is fully tested on Windows 1903 (Build 18362) which came out barely two weeks ago. So no matter what OS you are running, the upgrade to AO 3.00 is the right choice for sure! So let's have a closer look at the change log.

Setup.exe can be run in core, minimal-server and GUI mode. You don’t have to do a reset via ServiceTool before you run setup.exe. Once setup.exe updates your current version of AudiophileOptimizer, it will automatically launch the latest ServiceTool to make a full reset in the end. If you upgrade AO 2.20 (or older) to AO 3.00, setup will launch ServiceTool 3.00 at the end of the installation process to make that full reset. Since your old Activation-Key will no longer work for the new version, ServiceTool will need a new Activation-Key. Do not close ServiceTool, go to the self-service Activation-Portal and generate a new AO 3.00 compatible Activation-Key and activate ServiceTool with the Activation-Key; this will also activate AO and all other components. Please feel free to ask anyhting you'd like to know. We really hope you enjoy the latest iteration of the AudiophileOptimizer and we also hope to be around for another 6 years! Very best, AudioPhil
  2. I must say I find this download very impressive. This really sounds as if being there. The label has a very good track record. Their previous releases has all been 96 pcm, and very very good indeed but this DXD takes it all up a notch. If this is exemplary for DXD recordings then that is what I will be searching for. DXD recommendations please! Sound Liaison; Carmen Gomes sings the Blues.

  5. My Allo Volt +D recently arrived, I tested it and I was surprised with the quality, well detailed and transparent, not harsh, I'm very satisfied, but I noticed that the sound is a bit ''cold'' and tiring, lack of warmth, a bit bright too, more than that I expected, I've read that in all reviews that the sound is neutral, what can be the weakness of my setup? I don't believe it is a defect in something, My Setup: Speakers: Pioneer SB22-LR (neutral to warm sound signature) Connected to the amp by thick, shielded, decent quality cables. DAC: Toppingo E30 (neutral to warm sound signature) Powered with a phone charger and connected to the PC with an Audioquest Forest USB cable) Connected to the amp with shielded and good quality RCA cable, everything updated, including the driver.

  6. A few years ago we introduced the "shell replacement" feature in our ServiceTool and since then we put a lot and continous effort into it. The ServiceTool in AO 3.00 now offers more than 35 different variations of the shell replacement, so why do we put so much effort and time into this little feature? And what after all is a shell replacement, and why should you use it in your setup? Let's start with a few explanations. A shell in the windows world is what you already know as your desktop environment or GUI (graphical user interface). It is your desktop, your start menu, all the basic functions you can see right after you log in to your windows machine. So basically this is the entire windows environment which gets loaded after the login. Of course there is a lot happening, many process and threads are started to present you the windows desktop and load all the features and functions of Windows. In the Windows Server world the shell can also have a different appearance, namely on Windows Server systems which are running in Server Core (core mode). On those setups you have no graphical user interface, all you will see after the logon is a command prompt window. It looks almost identical with the MS-DOS command prompt a few of you might still remember from days long gone. So a shell replacement is exactly what the name implies, we're going to replace the shell with something different. Let's say you mainly use Roon as your media player, wouldn't it be convenient having Roon launching automatically right after logon? Of course it would be convenient, but you could also simply put it in the Autostart folder right. So what's the difference? If you put in your Autostart Folder, Roon will just get loaded aside from the graphical user interface. It will be started together with the entire windows system and all its proccesses, threads and tasks in the background. But if you entirely replace the windows shell with Roon, only Roon and nothing else will be launched after logon. So the big advantage in this case is not the conveniece part of having it autimatically launched (you'll get that as free extra bonus ), the point of the shell replacment is to entirely bypass the entire windows desktop and just launch your media player of choice. This is not only very convenient, it'll reward you with a significant impovement in sound quality due to bypassing the entire windows desktop. Of course this works exactly the same way when you are on Windows Server in core mode, the difference in sound quality isn‘t just as big as it is on a system with a GUI. If you want to have even more convenience simply combine the shell replacement with the Autologon feature of ServiceTool. If you configure Autologon you will no longer have to press ctrl-alt-delete to enter your password, your machine will boot and logs iteslf in automatically. When you have additionally configured a shell replacement the media player of your choice will launch right after the automatic logon. So these two features basically transform your computer into a HiFi device. Simply press the power button and everything else will happen automatically, and you get a massive gain in sound quality! List of all available shell replacements in ServiceTool 3.00: JRiver Media Center 17 - 25 (both x86 and x64) Bug head emperor Total Commander Foobar2000 TIDAL Fidelizer Pro HQPlayer HQPlayer NAA Roon RoonServer RoonBridge Roon combined with HQPlayer RoonServer combined with HQPlayer AudiophileShell MinimServer MediaMonkey muso Kodi Alchemy Custom Shell Focusrite RedNet Control 2 Command Prompt Especially interesting is the new "Custom Shell" feature of ServiceToot. It allows you to create your own shell replacement which fits your needs 100%. See more details about this here -> https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/56327-how-to-customshell-as-shell-replacement/ Of course a shell replacement can also easily be reversed using the ServiceTool. Just launch it again, select the shell replacement feature and select "R" for "Restore default shell". No matter if you where in GUI or core before, ServiceTool will automatically restore the right default shell for you. Enjoy it, AudioPhil
  7. Greetings! I'm a grad student at MIT, and I'm working with a startup here that's developing a new high-end home stereo system. We're looking for feedback on the latest features of the system, and would love for you to take this quick 5-minute survey. I'm happy to answer any questions you have about the survey or the technology we're developing, so do don't hesitate to ask! https://dsc4026.sawtoothsoftware.com/xYXqPLYNTC/cgi-bin/ciwweb.pl?studyname=xYXqPLYNTC -Ben
  8. Most of us are probably aware that the attempts have been made to modify human embryos' DNA. In fact we could see first genetically modified humans quite soon. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/03/15/first-genetically-modified-humans-could-exist-within-two-years/ And while everybody reflecting on this thinks about such possibilities as preventing diseases or increasing some abilities (like IQ) that DNA modifying could give us, I just came with a different idea. What if we could increase our hearing ability due to such a modification.? The simple idea is to increase our low frequency hearing range to let's say an elephant level and the high frequency one to let's say - a bottlenose dolphin or porpoise. Could improving the dynamics and stereo imaging be possible too.? If so - the new type of an audiophile would appear on the planet - (let's call him) the Superaudiophile. How many of us would like our kids to be like that? How would this influence the audio market? How the rest of (unmodified) us would feel while talking about sound quality with a guy like that..?! BTW I am aware I've just entered Philip K. Dick territory.. Someone ready to let his imagination run free.?
  9. Computer Audiophile Users can get 25% off We'll Be Together Again, featuring Javon Jackson, Ron Carter, and Billy Drummond on HDtracks using code CPUTOGETHER. The shadows of the Sonny Rollins trio and Joe Henderson trio (both having recorded classic albums at the Village Vanguard) hover over this sparse, revealing trio outing with Jackson, Carter and Drummond. And like his sax playing elders, Jackson put his own stamp on a set of well chosen jazz standards while also showcasing a few originals. “Sonny being a big influence on me, obviously there would be some things in there that would be reminiscent, or have that spirit anyway,” says Jackson, who just hit the half century mark this June. And while playing without a chordal instrument was a challenge in some respects for the saxophonist, he explains that Carter’s presence more than made up for the absence of piano on this Chesky release. “Ron is kind of like a symphony behind you. He’s the bass player, but he’s the piano at times, he’s the drums and he’s out front with the melody. So he can be several things at once. With him there, there are so many colors that are available to me. So it’s not out of disrespect to the piano, it’s just that with Ron, we have a lot of opportunities. This trio setting just allows him to kind of roam a little bit and be more of a free safety, to use a football analogy.” Part of the Chesky Binaural + Series, all recorded with a single microphone, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording. Now headphone users will hear the same three-dimensional sound and imaging as audiophiles have for the past 25 years with Chesky Recordings. Also, these new Binaural+ Series albums capture even more spatial realism for the home audiophile market, bringing you one step closer to the actual event. You will hear some of the most natural and pure Jazz music ever recorded.
  10. So I'm equal parts gamer and guitarist and I was blown away a couple years ago when I stopped using typical gaming headsets and got a pair of Sennheiser PC 360s. They were my first set of semi-audiophile headphones and it was like I was able to hear for the first time (even with on-board sound). Now I'm addicted and looking for something even possibly better since those have taken a beating, but I kind of really want something wireless for my current situation (that's probably a no-no for audiophiles, I don't know). I do own a Blue Yeti so it can just be a pair of headphones, maybe later if antlion makes a wireless mod mic I can get one of those too. I really don't want to over-compromise on audio and from what I've looked at the Senny RS 120s seem too low end / uncomfy long term. I'm pretty torn on open vs closed back although for music & comfort I lean towards open, it can be annoying for my girlfriend though. The Senny RS 170s would be perfect at their price point if they were open but they're not and the 180s are pushing it on price and I hear they do leak a ton of sound. Anyone aware of something similar to the 170s that have that Sennheiser clarity? As a guitarist I love me some beefy mid-tones so there is room for improvement probably I don't have experience with other brands yet. I'm not a fan of over-bearing bass (which I often find in cheaper closed backs, like turtle beach headsets and similar garbage) but I do like it to have a tight presence. Something open-back that isn't TOO open back would be preferable. Probably grasping at straws with my budget, may have to save for awhile and just endure the torture (had to send my 360s into square trade and they're reimbursing me so I have nothing right now, feels like I'm wandering thirsty through an audio desert).
  11. This NSM Model 5SE speakers are in excellent overall condition. Come with grills, manuals, original box. They are an acoustically matching pair, serial numbers confirm that. My price is $200. New they were selling for $499 and they still command excellent value. The review below summarizes my impressions of them. It is hard to buy speakers of this quality now, especially SE version of Model 5 with all the upgrades. The Model 5 Signature Edition is a hot rod version of the Model 5. The cabinet is a hand rubbed white Russian Baltic birch plywood cabinet, long known for its anti-resonant properties and sonic quality. The Model 5 SE is hot rodded with Superior ™ binding posts, polypropelene capacitor by-passed with film foil capacitor, metal oxide resistor, and DH Labs silver sonic internal wire. Imagine sound, imaging, and soundstaging even more exquisite than that of the standard Model 5. Buyer pays actual shipping and PP fees. I have perfect scores on Audiogon and eBay if you need to see them just let me know. Buy with confidence and please review detailed hi-res pictures. SPECIAL FEATURES: Magnetically shielded Time Coherent Point Source Design: time-aligned, two-way, first-order, point source, acoustic suspension Drivers: 1 inch soft dome, ferro-cooled tweeter, 4.5 inch carbon fiber full-range driver Crossovers: 18 AWG laminated copper inductor, polypropeline capacitor, non-inductive wire wound resistor, multi-strand copper to tweeter, inductor is wired directly between full-range driver and terminal. Cabinet: acoustic suspension Connectors: gold plated copper five-way binding posts Review summarizes it best, they are truly holographic: "The only speaker I could find that could cast a more rock-solid center image is the utterly minuscule, stupidly-good-at-the-price, ... NSM Model 5SE, which shoots images in the room like a laser and beats out just about any speakers in this regard. The little NSMT presents center-placed vocal images as if they are right THERE, like a softball hovering in the air. It's almost eerie and, no doubt, the Model 5's fit-in-the-palm-of-your-hand size helps."

  14. « Some a[ttendees, exhibitors, and members of the press... at the New York Audio Show 2013] are afraid to admit it... » :
  15. The following was taken from this article on Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop. It is from the end of the article that lists eight steps to selling snake oil. I changed a small number of words. Any of it sound familiar? https://arstechnica.com/science/2017/07/defense-of-gwyneth-paltrows-goop-offers-case-study-on-how-to-sell-snake-oil/ No hate for Gwyneth Paltrow here. She is a fine actress though perhaps a bit misguided on some products she promotes. Step 1. Assure the customer that you are there for them and can care for them—especially when no one else is or can, including the heartless, mainstream audio engineering community. As Great sound puts it: Our primary place is in addressing people, audiophiles in particular, who are tired of hearing less-than-great sound, who are looking for solutions—these audiophiles are not imagining what they hear, and they should not be dismissed or marginalized. 2. Explain that you just have more answers than those stuffy evidence-based doctors because you look at things from a fresh, holistic perspective. We are drawn to doctors, engineers, and designers who are interested in both Western and Eastern modalities and incorporate the best from both, as they generally believe that, while traditional sound reproduction can be really good at meeting spec, enjoyable music goals are more adept at tackling issues that are chronic. 3. Gently caution that you might not have all the answers—because, duh!, nobody does. So, it’s understandable that not all of your remedies will work. The thing about science and sound is that it evolves all the time. Studies and beliefs that we held sacred even in the last decade have since been proven to be unequivocally false and sometimes even harmful. Meanwhile, other advances in science and sound continue to change and enrich lives. It is not a perfect system; it is a human system. 4. But stress that you are the real deal. You have degrees, badges, and an open mind. The doctors we regularly feature on Great Sound: doctors who publish in peer-reviewed journals; doctors who trained at the best institutions; engineers who are repeatedly at the forefront of quality music reproduction; engineers and scientists who persistently and aggressively maintain an open mind. 5. And you are definitely not crazy at all!!! We would never suggest that someone skip all measurements, design solely by ear, that they refuse to take advantage of modern materials, that they not use the latest technical advancements. There is much in Western science to marvel at. 6. At this point, note that you are the victim of Meany McCriticFaces, who don’t know what they’re talking about and are just trying to sell stuff and promote their own brands, unlike you, who have the customers’ backs (see step 1). There are third parties who critique Great Sound to leverage that interest and bring attention to themselves. Encouraging discussion of new ideas is certainly one of our goals, but indiscriminate attacks that question the motivation and integrity of the doctors, engineers, and designers who contribute to the site is not. 7. Twist the facts to suggest that any critics of you are actually critics of the customer. You’re in this together! Some of the coverage that Great Sound receives suggests that audiophiles are lemmings, ready to jump off a cliff whenever one of our designers discusses using special cable, or improving a power supply, or dampening a chassis—or, heaven forbid, take a walk barefoot. As audiophiles, we chafe at the idea that we are not intelligent enough to read reviews and take what serves us, and leave what does not. We simply want information; we want autonomy over our musical lives. 8. End by turning the table on those who dare to criticize evidence-free, nonsensical audiophile remedies that may be ineffective. Declare that it is those critics that are in fact ineffective, not you, who are open and compassionate. It is unfortunate that there are some who seem to believe that they already know it all, who pre-judge information before they’ve even taken the time to read or understand it, who believe that there is actually nothing left to learn, who believe that they, singularly, own the truth. That is troubling, and that is dangerous. Here’s to an open and honest dialogue, to open minds and open hearts.
  16. I am curious to know whether or not other audiophiles rely on their audio equipment to help manage stress and/or anxiety. Thank you for participating!
  17. Nelson Wright is an outstanding singer/songwriter and is offering his latest album, Orphans & Relics, in high-res at 96-24. Full disclosure: I know Nelson, and while I have no involvement at all in the album itself I may have played a small part in convincing him to offer a high-res version. I'm happy to say it came out quite well. I've listened to both the regular CD and high-res versions on my system. The high-res version sounds great and is clearly superior. More air between players/instruments, deep three-dimensional soundstage, free-flowing, natural even liquid sound. The 96-24 version deserves the audiophile label. Orphans & Relics is Americana, with subgenre styles ranging from folk to jazz to blues. I don't think there's a weak track on the album. Decide for yourself. You can preview the album and buy the high-res version here (and as far as I know, the high-res version is only here): Nelson Wright - Music Downloads If you like it, support him. I wish all independent musicians would offer new music in high-res versions as good as this.
  18. Hi everyone! I am writing this post in order to present you a project I have been working on the last months: Archphile: Archphile - Yet Another Archlinux Based Distribution for Raspberry Pi Archphile, is a customized ArchlinuxARM distribution in order for the Raspberry Pi to be used as an audiophile mysic player along with the use of USB Dacs. The whole spirit of the project is to keep it simple. The main ingredients of Archphile are: - ArchlinuxARM - MPD - Ympd (a nice web interface for MPD) There are no automations and there will never be. Usb disks/sticks work out of the box and in order for the system to see your network shares you will have to edit /etc/fstab (you will find some examples there in order to customize and use). Some special notes: - Archphile since the beginning contains the latest FIQ FSM USB driver which solves the majority of problems with raspberry pi and USB Dacs. For more details please see: Troubleshooting pops and clicks with usb DACS - How to - Archphile However from next version step 1 will no longer be needed. - Archphile repository contains customized packages which are updated frequently. The major packages there are mpd-archphile (two packages - one with ffmpeg support) and ympd. - Some instructional articles in order to help beginners configure their system - You can download and see initial instructions here Screenshot: Conclusion: I am not a developer and Archphile is just a configuration I created for my needs and I just thought that uploading and sharing my image would also help users with the same needs that do not have the knowledge to configure a linux system. My intention is not to support many devices as I just want to support the devices I like and use in my everyday life. Udoo Quad is the next possible device to be supported by archphile. I really hope that you like and enjoy Archphile. Cheers, Michael

  20. Here's the latest from Soundmagic - the HP150 - and here I think Soundmagic has combined the best qualities of the open-back HP200 with the best of the closed-back HP100 into the closed-back (but spacious) HP150. I can summarize my recommendation this way: If I were stuck somewhere with my music and player and just the HP150 for the rest of my life (a few years at least), I'd be very happy - it's a great musical sound.

  21. This is a video about a guy who is audiophile and mainly sample his fanaticism for "record and make sounds" Just put your Headphones and enjoy! <span id="Dst[0][107:113:100:106]" _mstsrc="0_107:113" _mstdst="0_100:106">
  22. Hi, I'm sure this has been covered in length elsewhere, but I'm looking for something to replace my squeezebox. I've found it a useful, if horrible sounding streaming solution -- but the things it can do are perfect for what I need. i'd like to play music on my networked computer, as well as access various services, including pandora and spotify. I DO NOT need a DAC as I have been using my Esoteric for DAC work, it will decode DSD, and most other formats beautifully. Budget isn't much of an issue, but I'm not looking to spend $10K+ on a mere server -- although it needs to be better sounding than the Squeezebox I'm retiring -- and should be able to decode all the hi-rez formats that are coming down the line. What say you all?
  23. What is your nomination for best hi-res audiophile recording or recordings of 2014? May I start out with suggesting the new group Batik;The Old Man and the Sea. This album is so beautiful written and played that I have played everyday for the past 2 weeks. And the sound stage is stunning, maybe the best engineered Sound Liaison album so far or at least as good as the Carmen Gomes albums or the Paul Berner album from the same label. It is available as flac and wav, flac being cheaper for some reason $15 vs $20. BATIK (WAV)
  24. The end of the year is near. What was your top 3 best Hi Rez Download purchases in 2013,and where did you buy/download them? And why are those three your top picks. My top 3: 1. Carmen Gomes Inc.''Thousand Shades of Blue'' Carmen Gomes Inc.- SSS no.1 2. Doug Macleod.''There's a Time'' There's A Time | HDtracks - The World's Greatest-Sounding Music Downloads 3.Keith Jarrett.''Somewhere'' Somewhere (Live In Lucerne / 2009) - Top 25 Jazz Albums | HDtracks - The World's Greatest-Sounding Music Downloads To my own surprise, after careful listening, I do place both the Carmen Gomes as well as the Dough Macleod album above the absolutely excellent Keith Jarrett ECM album. Maybe it is the surprise that 2 relatively small labels,Reference Recordings and Sound Liaison, can produce such great albums,sound quality wise,that influence that decision. Musically the albums are very different: Macleod continuous the acoustic blues tradition with tales of modern life or life as he sees it. Gomes mixes up Jazz and Pop tunes with beautiful originals in a surprisingly fresh and unique blend of the different genres: jazz,blues,pop and world music,and what a voice! Jarrett's trio is in top form,keeping the Jazz piano trio alive,telepathic musical communication. All of the musicians are masters in their own right,and that btw. is a big contribution to the excellent sound of these albums,we are talking real musical instruments here. All three albums has sound wise a lot in common, in that they are all live or at least one room recordings with no possibility for overdubs.And they all have that ''gel'' to the sound that is missing from so many of the modern recordings. The Jarrett album was recorded live in a concert hall in Lucerne, the Macleod at the stage in George Lucas' studio with no bass,vocal or drum both,''just 3 musicians playing as if doing a gig.'' and Carmen Gomes in the legendary studio 11, in the Netherlands, in front of a small audience, no head phones, and the musicians playing very quiet in order to hear each other.
  25. Hi Folks I wonder if there is interest in a customized, multilanguage Windows 8 Pro x64 Version, tuned and tweaked for audio use and installable like every other "normal" windows version... Since there is absolutely no interest in violating any Copyrights, a legal Windows 8 Pro Key would be needed to install this version of Windows 8 and activate it later on. The Focus of this Windows Version is just Playing Music an the best level possible and beeing a Network Client for NAS Systems (SMB/DLNA/...) The System would be completely stripped down as far as possible without loosing network services, JRiver MediaCenter 18 (Trial) and Foobar2000 already pre-installed. Foobar with the needed Plugins, etc.. There are many possibilities far beyond from what i have read so far on many sites in the net. - Stripping Down all Windows Services etc. (standard... ) - General System tuning for performance - Div. Tuning for SSD use - Div. Tuning for NTFS - Div. Tuning for Audio use - and lot's more... This windows version would be highly customizable, there are almost no limits. and it would be available as regular ISO File to burn it on CD or create a bootable USB Stick. Compatible with all hardware a normal windows 8 installation would be.... It won't get easier than that guys ...so what do you think, would the work be appreciated? Cheerio, John Doe
