I personally donīt give a ratīs ass about the name of the player as long as it does itīs job
strategically I wouldnīt even consider changing it,because itīs already well known and it might be hard to change an ingrown habit
imo

very nice comments Nick

what single psu update would you give first priority?
I now use asus p5k-e mobo spdif output x-former isolated to my buffalo dac but plan to run mobo usb to hiface-I2S to buffalo I2s input

has anybody considered building a linear pc psu?
would be interesting?
or maybe put BG caps on the different lines from the sm psu to start with?
hereīs a guide in Norwegian about the different connectors and their pin noīs and voltages in a std pc psu
the important tables should be easy to figure out even if theyīre in Norwegian

hello P
just an update:
having a day off today and now Iīm listening to live at blues alley with eva cassidy and have tried back and forth with or w/o upsampling and in my system itīs no doubt: quad and AP gives the reproduction more detailed ambience and realistic sense of space
the voice and the applause is also presented more free standing from the acoustic venue
nobodyīs frying bacon here Happy the applause have substance and body
bass is also more nuanced and easier to follow
and then I donīt really give a rats ass what works better in other systems;
like the true ego I am;i only care about myself and my system
well done

hello again
short update
general improvement even more obvious on high rez material except of course I had to set the xx to no oversampling!
better resolution gives better sight into the ss

you should know you ignorant Wink
he was one of the most famous jazz recording technicians that made e.g many of the well known SAVOY recordings etc
and his trademark was a slight echo that added ambience to the recordings.

hello
I run q1=4 q4&5=0
by varying q2 and 3 I add ambience to the room
when too high(above 20) it tends to be rudy van gelder like echo
when down towards 0 it is way too dull and dead
imo
