1  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: Correct settings in xtweaks to clock down the microprocessor on: November 17, 2018, 05:37:24 pm
Hi Georg,

See my sig for the XTweaks settings. Maybe look at the "General PC settings" because they don't address the necessary cooling for the Mach PC's. The main one will be Balanced Load (and above 42 for a normal processor like yours).

It is not guaranteed that it will work, but I have the idea that it can work for all, if it is only understood.
Set it in Normal OS. Boot to MinOS. Play Unattended a few seconds. And maybe after that reboot one time. If then it doesn't work well under 1200MHz right from booting, then, well, it doesn't work.

Over here it always works out of the box, BUT I always use the RAM-OS Disk as a base (I mean : for any new PC we build).

Best regards,
Peter

Richard,

Only yesterday I was thinking the same. But there is a general malaise going on in our audioland and this could be about being overwhelmed. Personally I can just sense that and it would be similar to me not being able to change drastically each other month. I mean, why did you not get yourself a pair of Blaxius^2 interlinks yet ?

Well ?

Hahaha

But it is a good example about myself. And this is thus what I was thinking of yesterday : I should possibily be raving about the Mach III once in a while and in this Mach III topic, but more honest would be to rave about the Blaxius^2 in *that* thread. But would it ? Maybe not because the base sound, I'm sure, comes from the Mach III. Still without the Blaxius^2 the sound would be nowhere near what I have today.
Or is it the Lush^2 ?
Well, surely Yes again because if I change its config to "a lesser one" all collapses again.

Some people are still getting used to their NOS1a/G3 upgrade. They just *can't* and get a new PC and get a new USB cable and get a new interlink, and when they're done they find out that possibly the internet cable should be changed into an ET^2.

Btw, yesterday we finished a first production HDMI^2 cable. No need to really tell about it because this environment (XXHighEnd in general) seems not to be in that direction. Or are we ?

Goof example for myself again : Did I finally make (have made) a Lush for my HT endeavours ? or a Clairixa for that matter ?
No. But I should have years ago. Good that I skipped because now it can be a Lush^2. Saves money ? yes, so to speak. But I'm just not up to all these changes.
So now I use the Blaxius^2 myself and the HT movies are suddenly outrageously good. Do I exaggerate ? no. But I had them made because they had to be tested because people asked for them (this is mostly outside of this forum). Same with the Lush^2. I was asked. Btw same with ET^2 and same with HDMI^2. Blahblahblah. But now I see what the Blaxius^2 does to the HT experience, shouldn't I fi-nal-ly make that Lush^2 for the HT connection ? (this is another PC somewhere down the basement). And what about the ET^2 then ? at least that could involve audio itself (goes to the same PC as mentioned Lush^2 should go to).

Another answer is : Lush^2's go out each day (since it exists). But the public response to them soon stopped. In here (Phasure) it never has been anything much to begin with, still 50 or so of the known people (to you and me) own one. Ha, this includes you.

Summarized, IMHO people can't keep on changing and they also can't keep on raving. I try, but it is quite difficult to not repeat yourself or another.
Meanwhile people like you may think that nobody agrees with you or that nobody buys anything. But the truth couldn't be farther.
Look at my post in the Lush^2 topic and how I asked to better stop writing myself. Two or so people said "no, please continue !" ... and next they don't say anything themselves.
Must we blame someone ? no. This is how it goes these days.

Everybody (or most) is silently happy.

Apologies for my bit of Saturday morning rant, but I suppose I agree with your gist, Richard.

Kind regards and thank you !
Peter

Thank you Georg.
And really no problem to spend that time. I wish that would not have happened. Is it the Ryzen indeed you are using there ?

Regards,
Peter
5  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: Installing XXHighend Error on: November 14, 2018, 11:23:49 am
Hi Georg,

Would it be fair to say that something is wrong ?

Did you unpack the whole .rar on a not "AV infected" PC and did the install all over (of XXHighEnd) ?

Could that AMD be a Ryzen ?

Quote
I misunderstood, sorry. Should I log the sequence again?

Yes, if you still feel the lust ... Happy

Kind regards,
Peter

PS: Strange suggestion perhaps : why stay on 10586.0 ? I don't think many people stil use it and at least for me it certainly doesn't sound better. I am thinking of this because *if* that is a Ryzen, you wouldn't want to use a too old OS. 14393.0 may not even cut it, but we haven't really tried newer builds anyway ...

Georg, why did I think about asking you to switch on logging, quit and restart XXHighEnd and then apply the procedure with the log file, but did I not ask you for real ...
Now I lack data which could be useful.

It can very well be that I built in something for 10586.0 which was not tested and maybe does not work now.

Were you previously using 10586.0 with 2.10 ?

Didn't I think of something?

Haha, no ... ME (perhaps). This shut off UAC as how it works today, works like that since 2.10. So what I meant is : maybe I made a mistake and it is necessary to shut off the UAC. Mind you, via the Stop button again. Thus :

- Shut off UAC;
- Stop Windows Updates.

In that sequence.
No need to reinstall anything. Just stop UAC and retry the Windows Update thing.

Does not help ?
Then swith on logging, retry the Stop Updates and right after the last message about it (see your earlier post) grab the newest XX- (thus only XX-) log file and post it (or send it to me, what you like best).

Peter

Georg - Thanks.

I wonder whether this can be related to not having shut off the UAC yet. Maybe you already did, but ...
I have never seen this before (but obviously I anticipate it).

If you never connect this PC to the Internet, it won't be a problem anyway ? (let me know your thoughts)

OK Georg, good.

that there is only a half attempt of disabling windows update using the Stop button.

Not sure. But also not sure what the "half attempt" could be you are referring to. What do you notice of it ? Or maybe better : what does it mean, "half attempt" ?

Peter

Unfortunately the ChangeWP.exe  is not included in the rar-file.

Hi Georg. I'm afraid then that is your problem, because it is ...
I just checked it (downloaded 2.10 main file (first listed in the 2.10 topic) myself and unpacked) and it just is there.
Maybe some anti virus after all ?
Or maybe it got deleted by whatever accident ?

My suggestion is to re-download the .rar and retry ...

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Georg,

Maybe it is so that the .exe files in your XX folder are "blocked" (see properties of the files) ?
In this case it would be about ChangeWP.exe.

If that is not so ... can you change the Wallpaper (like with rightclick on the Desktop etc.) ? If your Windows is not activated your answer will probably be "No", but in that case I don't know whether it influences. This is because you probably have a Windows 10 version which is (may not be) compatible. If you go to a Command Prompt and type Winver in there, what version / build does it come up with ? The N 1511 does not ring a bell really, but it looks to be an older one (maybe even provided by me).

Regards,
Peter

Oops, Michael, you are right. I have been confusing myself with the arrival dates. A pair sent after you arrived earlier, and that one received the A:B-R, B:B-R.

Sorry for the confusion !

14  Ultimate Audio Playback / Cables (Community induced) / Re: Blaxius Squared ! on: November 09, 2018, 09:27:33 am

Something else ...


What you see here is the "definitive" version of the Blaxius^2 in Digital fashion. Let's say it is named Blaxius^2-Digital.
The difference with the Blaxius^2 for anlogue is the missing White wire. The annotation as you see it in the picture (the B end assumed the same) would be :

A:[W]B-R, B:[W]B-R

The [W] means that it is internally there all right and can not be avoided. It also means that - unlike the normal Blaxius^2 - it would be allowed to not connect any of the "connectable" wires. This is because the ground return path goes over the fixed (White) shield. It would look like :

A:[W], B:[W]

So, true, the "White"/innermost shield is there by standard for the digital version of the Blaxius^2. This appeared to be necessary for utmost critical applications, like Chord's Hugo M Scaler. Envision two BNC outputs for a dual wire setup to achieve max 768KHz output (each BNC cable being 384 capable), those outputs so close to each other that there's only 1mm space in between the two cables. And now they interfere with each other with the notice that for normal Blaxius^2 there is no configuration possible with 100% shield coverage for the signal wire in the cable. Thus also not when the inner shield (W) is the one in use.

The above mentioned is normally not a problem, but the M Scaler which seems suspect to RFI to begin with (not my own judgment but derived from hot discussions about it elsewhere), now pushes its higher frequency signal (50Mbit/s per cable) through two very close to each other connections, them causing interference with each other. And now the tiniest bit of "irregularity" may cause trouble.

Hi Michael,

What a nice surprise this early morning !

Thank you very much for being the first to really use it (as far as I can tell - others are travelling) ... and report about it.

What is also nice for me to see is that it works out as well with a quite different system. It should because of what it protects from (like the Lush^2) but the analogue application is a quite different beast and the behavior could be different (still many configurations to try out when it would not have worked out and notice that you received the same as I use myself - this does not count for the others already delivered).

Thank you Michael !
Peter
