Do you think it makes a difference soundwise changing Ram OS size to 25GB for 14393.0?

Hi Scroobs this is something to try but its some mission for me. Enlarging Ram OS 15 to 25g and applying Xx updates.

I guess I should have saved a copy of my upgraded vhd file at the time.

I never run other than Ram OS, no updates, Min OS and unattended. Hardly ever tweak or change OS settings.


Might be worth waiting for 2.11. Will this come with 25g Ram size Peter?

Thanks Peter it has come clear for me now as simple as it was, I think I thought it was not simple. Anyway current setting sounding excellent.

Peter I just need to clarify the connections for the config you sent with the cable. Perhaps a new photo. Nothing more. Robert

Just made a discovery I did not have TANF jumper connections correct at all. I didn't realise jumpers are in fact connected internally.

Currently trying this A:xWYRxx B:xWYRxx per Larry's suggestion AS site. Is this Cubed JSSG 360?

This certainly works for way better sound but have not compared to shipped config. I had no bass with incorrect TANF compared to now.

Can you clarify A: BWYR, B: BWR as shipped please.
From photo on supplied sheet A: BWYRxx, B: BWRxxx. Where x has no connections for A. But B: BWR(xx)x, two bracket x's are joined and last is not?
None of pictorial pictures show this shipped connection I believe? Photo a little hazy to my eyes of "B" jumpers.

Yes hard for me to say in this short time. Have you gone back to A: B-W-Y-R, B: B-W-R?

Certainly bass seemed restricted using TANF, highs extended though with XXhighend but on Spotify bass is almost too much.

I've bit the bullet and bought the Lush 2. After two weeks at configuration it arrives with A: B-W-Y-R, B: B-W-R which certainly improved over the two weeks from new. I went back to original Lush cable and surprisingly its signature is similar but Lush 2 has more music information. I wouldn't call this change huge but none the less is there.

I have now changed to this setting from The Audiophile Style, General Forum, Lush^2 topic: TANF (A: xWYxxx, B: xWYRxx).
 
This certainly also needs some running in and has improved after a week. I listen to Spotify to find new music and it most certainly has improved the sound from this lofi source quite remarkably making it listenable for longer.
 
Anyway more listening to be done. Some of you may not be aware of this new configuration but worth trying. Has anyone else tried this and how did you find the sound?

I can't go back to original Lush, Lush ^2 is certainly a worthwhile improvement. Now where is XX 2.11?

Certainly no sign of any so called Hi Res audio files on Amazon Australia site. I joined but quickly cancelled out. Seems a number of issues to sort. Could be a while before things take shape. Certainly Amazon has the resources to do it properly. As a business model hi res is not profitable on its own.  Robert

Peter have you gone back to Arc Prediction? I have and prefer it over custom filter settings from low to high.

But are you running 2.11 so we may be behind on the settings front.

Hi Peter,
            https://www.denafrips.com/single-post/2019/08/02/Product-Launch-ARES-II

I wasn't thinking of buying one but as its setup to take 1536khz, I wondered if you had tried this at some point in the past.

Robert

Interesting Nick, I certainly reboot Ram once a week anyway. I will try that.

Note I have also changed my Custom filter back to Arc P. Definitely seems to have more treble detail if not slightly brighter, instruments more real.

I think we all need 2.11 sooner than later!!!!

I do wonder sometimes that we subconsciously need change to keep our interest going. Certainly the changes introduced with the Lush 2 could give one a headache, not that I have gone down that road yet.

We mustn't loose sight of the music.

Reading the new release of an upgraded NOS/OS Dac today which has this capability, I wondered about XX/Phasure running to this figure. Has it been tried?

Where’s 2.11?

My advice is sell the Benchmark, that's what I did. This DAC does not upsample anything. Its top input capability is 24/192. John Siau(Benchmark) has been left well behind in DAC advancements. Even the DAC 3 is behind and still 24/192 and over priced for what it is. In saying that it was a good DAC in the day!!!

After this rant I did use the old Lush cable on this DAC and it worked fine, easily better than the Benchmark standard USB cable provided. The Lush 2 is another step up from the Lush. Mind you I don't own one yet.
