Juan and all,

After the help of George (nik.d) I could indeed determine an issue with the downloading of XXHighEnd.rar (and others). The stupid thing is : for me this goes fine and I don't have a real means to test it like "you" do. So ... working on a solution !

Hey Juan !!
Very nice to see you again.

I don't know what can be bugging you. Apart from the forum being down since yesterday indeed (but now OK again).

The download is in this topic :
http://www.phasure.com/index.php?topic=4218.msg44532#msg44532
I just tried it and it just works.

Maybe check your antivirus software because it may trip on registry adjustments which XXHighEnd.exe does and may be reported as a trojan.

Let me know how you fare,
Peter
3  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Emails to Phasure bounce ? on: June 29, 2022, 09:29:06 am
Hello all,

The past weeks we suffer from some new Google rule which makes bounce a forwarded email. It is this forwarded email you receive a message upon - not the normal email. In other words, I just receive the emails while you think it bounced.

Working on it ...

Curiously, to go from MaxOS to MinOS, I had to reactivate  "Stop Remaining Services", but once in MinOS I was able to deactivate it again.

Joseph, I am afraid it does not work like that. Removing stuff from the OS - which is what happens when shutting it off in Normal OS - is totally different from not having it so-called not active during playback. And you can see it happening by means of Minory Clean now keeping on running. It surely is not the only thing which keeps on running.

So this is a severe apples and oranges, and comparing is not possible (unless you are able to compare over boots - one with all shut off as should and no M.C. and the other way less (up till nothing) shut off with M.C. active).

sorry
:-)

Joseph, isn't there an associated service involved ? If so, you obviously must put that in the list of Services to keep.

Regards,
Peter

Thank you very much, Joseph.

Somehow I myself never got around checking this out. I really wanted to, but ... (always something else at hand)

Best regards,
Peter

Hey Roberto !

I am happy to say that I still use your config, and that I probably can't get rid of it ever. It is exactly as you say : you can now literally see people's moods and intentions and how all play together.

Your config is so different from the others, that it is amazing that it can work out in the first place. Everybody should thank you deeply for finding this !

Hug,
Peter
10  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: Windows 11 ? on: February 21, 2022, 06:09:13 pm

It runs all right !
A few remarks from what I just experienced :

1. Download and Install of the required Dot-net 3.5 goes automatically.

2. After that, re-start XXHighEnd, BUT use rightclick - Start as Administrator.

3. I also tried to start it without that (#2), and I don't know which anomalies during the start procedure were caused by that, but if you keep on working with Start as Administrator, then eventually all behaves normally.

4. Don't be confused by the possible messages about the script of AutoHotkey (see #3), but do notice that I killed AutoHotKey from memory (Exit at the green H icon) because else it would not work any more (again, see #3).

Now it keeps on starting normally (but As Administrator !). Without being activated of course, but I guess that will work normally.

For others : Please never attempt to go to MinOS with an XXHighEnd version running on W11 because it will fail by (almost) guarantee and you will probably lose the OS (can't get back to Normal OS any more). So this is ONLY for people who want to upgrade their Music Server PC (not the Audio Playing PC), *or* those who use XXHighEnd outside of MinOS for other reasons (these people exists).

Kind regards,
Peter

Ah ...
OK, wait ... I *do* have one other (new) laptop in the house with W11 on it. I can / will try that one !
(not for MinOS)

Will let you know the soonest !

Hello Tore,

On the back of my mind I have a message from someone who told that XXHighEnd did not want to start under W11 at all. But I am not sure !

All my PC's don't want to upgrade to W11 and it is high time that I start to tweak one so I can try some things myself. But it needs time ...

Can't you just try it ? I understand that at this moment that PC is worthless anyway, right ?

Kind regards,
Peter
13  Ultimate Audio Playback / Your thoughts about the Sound Quality / Re: Intona alternative on: January 28, 2022, 11:04:31 am
Hi there Georg,

Thank you for this.

I think it is a bit of a secret (two actually) that (the) Alldaq was what brought me to creating the Phisolator for the NOS1a/G3; let's say that I stole the chip(-idea) in there because it did not want to work reliably. A replacement by Alldaq also failed. I now know the misery around that chip (Silanna) because half of them don't work (well).

Second secret is that if I am correctly informed, the Alldaq USB isolator is EOL (End Of Life) which is fine if you can still get one, but which would be sad if people focus on that and ask it for Christmas 2022. Happy

Btw, wasn't it you who came up with the Intona idea ? (maybe it was someone else). I still have S/N 000001.

Kind regards !
Peter
14  Ultimate Audio Playback / Chatter and forum related stuff / Re: Happy 2022 to everyone... and my new year's wish on: December 31, 2021, 05:42:43 pm

Haha, yeah, I understand. But as you can imagine, as long as I myself don't even make something for the (2x) 3 channel speakers I have, while all anticipates those amp channels ...

The psychological bad luck obviously also is that I worked for what ? more than two years on that 8 channel NOS2, which never materialised except for having every PCB and resistor and really all in-house to start the soldering. But the project appeared too large (impossible to troubleshoot because of too many inter-dependent modules). As you may remember, this was even including 8 power amps, which ended up as gain stage in your NOS1a/G3('s).

But I surely can say HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all !!

Dear All,

The newer users of XXHighEnd among you, may expect XXHighEnd to be compatible with Windows 11. The mere longer term users, will kind of "know" that this is virtually impossible. And I myself tell you it is impossible. At least at this moment.

Many will know the enormous hoopla involved to get a decently sounding XXHighEnd version for Windows 10, with all the so many "upgrades" involved starting with Vista, then W7 (with or without service pack 1), Windows 8 which only wanted to sound OK-ish after a year of working hard (with all of us), skipping W8.1 all together, to eventually end up with something like W10-10074, that several years later ending up in the great sounding W10-14393-0.

And today, again several years later, nothing changed to that. Also, in itself nothing is wrong with that, weren't it that people start to obtain W11 automatically (at getting a new PC/laptop, or even the system performing the upgrade from W10 to W11 automatically), but that does not mean that anything still works. Actually, nothing works much any more and I can't do much about it. Sure, I could dive into XXHighEnd for another 6 months, with a high probability of nothing sounding right, like the later W10 versions already did not. And you know what ? I can't waste my time on this.

The psychological problem ? -> all sounds more than superb today so there is no need.

The need as such thus springs from people obtaining incompatible operating systems, and well, they shouldn't. Not if they want a best sounding system. For that, you should just stick to your good old 14393.0 and preserve the system for audio, as already always was the intention.

But newcomers won't grasp that automatically.


What needs to happen is easy to explain :
- Get yourself 14393.0 (you can get that from me if needed).
Now you can do all what XXHighEnd was made for, which includes Minimizing the OS once you obtained an Activation Code. This also includes no destroyed OS when you attempt to go to MinOS with anything newer than 14393.0.


N.b.: I wrote this post so people won't waste their time on installing XXHighEnd in a chanceless environment.

Best regards !
Peter
