I find the shortcut keys quite sensitive to touch. Short and sharp strokes otherwise it can jump to next track or stop then start.

I tried 2nd fan switch up and running temps as recorded 54c to 58c. About 10 degrees hotter than down.

In comparing audio quality between these fan settings very little in it.
I will leave it down as our ambient room temp grows with summer.

This is with an average room temp of 22 degrees C.

I'd recommend anyone with a Mach computer/or other similar should remove dust at least twice a year and check all ventilation case holes are clear.

Have to say running Xx with only 2nd fan switch down temp runs at 46c to 50c. This is 17c lower now.

There is one thing I did which was a number of case holes on the top side were powder coated over. I cleaned these out. I think this has made the difference. These case holes are over the top of the CPU cooler. I actually can't believe the difference in temp now. I mean the dust wasn't that bad inside.
I'm trying the 2nd switch at up now.

Thanks Peter.

Actually after taking the lid off today and giving all inside a good dust off especially normal fan which was covered plus cooler fins, all is running cooler now by about 10 degrees. It has been a year since new and we had a hot dusty summer.

Hi Peter I'm running your photo of settings didn't make any difference in temp. Anyway here's what I have observed:

Overnight (Idle) temp runs at 56c to 60c with Xx up but not playing with 2nd switch down.

Both switches down temp is 40c no music.

Sound quality is worse with 1st (emergency) switch down during playback but ok with 2nd switch down only.

Temp with Xx playing music 64 to 67c with 2nd switch down.

Tj is 87c according to Temp App.

Is temps of 60 to 67c bad long term for CPU/listening?

Should I be alarmed my Mach III since latest Xx settings is running temperature wise at 63 to 65c at idle no music. I have 2nd switch down anyway but now on occasions emergency bright light comes on. CPU can take up to 76c I guess continuous. We are in winter with house heating. Should I have 1st switch down also? I normally leave it on 24/7.

ACG, Gosh that's all a bit sad not listening for months, I use an old Samsung tablet just as Xx remote nothing else.

Mind you I have an old monitor on my music server and mostly use this, its only in the next room, hardly ever use my tablet.

Can't go a day without listening!!

Well after removing said Red wire and reverting back to Arc Predict filter I did like the new sound.

Upon trying Peters new Xx settings which is where I discovered I was back at Custom filter after an unsaved reboot.

Have to say you have done it again sound wise removing another veil.

I've never tried adjusting Q settings mainly filter and SFS.

What you have achieved is a major change bar the custom filter.

More of everything and can turn volume up higher. Well Done for your endless listening and tweaking. The final frontier is still unexplored!!!

Is anybody out there in Xx land????

A:W-Y-R-G, B:W-Y
Difficult to describe because this happened because of a loose wire two actually. The B on the A side and the R on the B side. However, because I work with dipswitches since November 2020, I never noticed this.

This lifted from audiophilestyle.com, Lush ^3. New setting for Lush ^3.

Original best setting: A:W-Y-R-G, B:W-Y-R.

Quite easy to compare just remove red wire carefully from "B" side during playback.

This new accidental discovery is in fact better for sound I believe.

I found it lifted a glaze/veil from the sound. Violin, banjo and vocals from Leonard Cohen's, Amen, Old Ideas album 24/44 certainly improved. On initial listening I did find treble improved but bass reduced in output. 
Further to this I put Arc Prediction back on. Well I'm going to listen to more music over the next few days to see how filters go. But quite liking Arc Prediction again and new Lush settings.

I'm worried you might find this better. So better to not unpack it! Time will prevail. Progress can't be beaten in the end. Jet engines over piston aircraft, diesel over steam trains, digital printing over offset.

I hardly dare to say it. Maybe I must get used to the special sound. Maybe it *is* special. But it really is something else.

What are your thoughts about this piece of equipment today?

Let me again refer to my Q3,4,5 now all at 0, which adds smear (yea, really)

Yes agree with this finding quite noticeable when trying today. From here I have not tried any other settings but left Q3,4,5 at 1,1,1.

I don't understand the relationship with these settings so its probably in your good hands Peter.

But this was not all ...

I think that most people will use Q3,4,5 at 1,1,1. Well, a week ago I suddenly heard how that now could go. This too is difficult to explain, but I'd say that everybody who uses 1,1,1, will know why he does that. And I now heard that it was not "necessary" any more.
And THAT beat all ...

This most certainly works in my setup very noticeable. I never would have thought to try this one.

I notice you have also changed some XTweaks : Balanced Load = *68* / Nervous Rate = 10 / Cool when Idle = n.a / Provide Stable Power = *1* / Utilize Cores always = 1 / Time Performance Index = Optimal / Time Stability = Stable.

I've had the Stable power at "0" for some time did you intend to change this?

You are still using Custom filters as well? I'm still with Arc Predict.

I investigated online and its a problem with remoting from a computer with a newer version of Win OS than the one being accessed (Ram OS). My Music server runs latest W10. Robert

Sorry picture bad put a screen shot up now.

When I tick yes it connects to Ram os. Password is not a problem just the error message.
