62  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Big problem 0.9x-5 on: March 25, 2009, 08:54:19 am
hello P
I have severe problems with both 5 and 5b ; they end up not working at all and I went back to 4
could not get taskbar up again whatever I clicked and finally machine does not accept playing with 5 or 5 b
even after several restarts they donīt work
got fed up,have not got time for this,sry
4 is ok as long as I have q 2&3 to 17.
wait for next version

63  Ultimate Audio Playback / Your thoughts about the Sound Quality / 0.9x-5 on: March 22, 2009, 03:44:36 pm
hello P
0.9x-5 has way better resolution than my previous 0.9x-3
BUT with q2-5 set to 0 it sounds too hard!
so Iīm back to q1=4, q2=17, q3=17 and q4&5=0
scheme 4 running at present
MUCH more solid sound with these q settings
no interruptions with scheme 4
no scheme gives me small interruptions in playback!?!
5 is here to stay!
imo

where do you live? I have driven to Nunspeet to Bert a few years ago. after the Kiel ferry it isnīt that far.
reg. all the beta versions:
Iīve just learned slowly to resist trying all the new versions all the time;
out of experience Iīve learned the hard way that I often get into all sorts of hopeless "unsolveable" trouble when installing a more up to date version
I simply donīt have time to test them all
and now Iīm very happy with 9b

whatīs wrong with flutes? Happy
in my system which pedal know quite well the , the sabre dac fed through I2S bus is the best so far
it equals the 5 tower dddac in all over AND bass slam
it surpasses it in resolution(not difficult)
with resolution and low noise-floor comes 3d and the rest by itself imo
so thereīs no problem following complex passages of massed instruments and voices e.g. G.F.Haendel Messiah( my desert island favourit)
and this is with the stock IVY buffer version and the std psuīs
(will at a later stage try to build a tube based buffer ala  lampizator, but my tube psuīs tend to be big.......my riaa psu is 48kg for 4 x E810F!))

when it comes to XX I agree that close to perfect sounding versions are sometimes ruined in the persuit of  tweaking of features
agree that som prior versions sounds as if they were tuned to a specific need/purpose(soundwise)
( maybe the treshold for releasing new (improved) versions should go through a beta panel before "final" release)
so e.g let 0.9w-9b stay as the official latest working version till the next level is quality-proven.

maybe remove versions older than ????      there is something called too many options   (also on the different settings)
maybe there should be a working reference with fixed settings(at least some)
e.g 9b with 4/17/17/0/0   
easier to move on fw. when the new (intermediate) reference is set.......no more turning back except for P to locate weird faults
then the beta users can communicate on a select and"closed" part of the forum in the pursuit of REAL PROGRESS
this would also save a lot of ranting in the forum time for Peter

ALL this is of course IMO
ANYWAY THXS 4 the effort Peter,but make it easier on yourself

sh*t I thought I could settle down and enjoy Happy
I think it sounds better with q1=4 q2=17 q3=17 q4=0 q5=0
treble is crisper and better integrated with upper midrange; 30 on 2 and 3 is over the top on midrange focus and a little more mellow,maybe a good match for a little forward sounding system
x2 got more 3d than 0.9w-9b
IMO

I get the exact same message as JohanZ and I am the administrator
when I try to go back to 0,9x-9b I get the same f&&%( message.
fiddled a LOT to reinstall 9b ended up having to do a clean with undemo and the lot!
retrying x1 gives repeatedly same message

just have to add the following comment:
I have a very serious vinyl rigg with basis ovation fed by a pure cycle ac re-generator,airtangent reference remotecontrolled
airbearing straight-tracking arm with lyra titan i cartridge fed to a lyra erodion x-former and then to a thorsten loesch/borderpatrol  75kg lcr riaa/tvc and your xx-player is gaining grounds, if not quite there yet,but close
congrat!
