Do you still see the 48GB of memory ?
(like the below shows all my 32GB)

Mani,

Well, a logical reason would be that there's insufficient memory. Thus, just all together (like only one DIMM of 8GB suddenly at work).

Remember that the Max SFS is determining the allocation. So set that small too (or set it to equal the dynamic setting).

- Maybe it is related to one of the other settings you changed ? (and you told to Save (to the SSD) at rebooting ?

- Maybe your SFS is plainly too high ? (try 20 or so)

- Is this the Mach II or Mach III ?

N.b.: I have no idea whether memory can shut itself off for parts of it (like a HDD can do that), and that thus the contiguous memory really is not available.

You could exchange memory (all of it in one go) between your Mach II and Mach III. It is (about) the same and harmless to SQ when interchanged.

Regards,
Peter

No support for ASIO in XXHighEnd... sorry

Hey Gerardo,

That sounds like serious BS.

To me it seems highly unlikely that an OS upgrade would be able to cause this. I am only saying : It would be good if your thinking is not in the direction of the OS having stopped support for 32/768 (702.5). These things won't happen.

It will merely be in the driver area of your 3R DAC, so maybe the driver got uninstalled or something. So the first thing you should do it reinstall that driver (uninstall it first if all seems to be OK in the first place).

Notice that the support for 384 you will see in your Audio Properties, is the maximum output sampling rate Windows supports Natively - generally through WASAPI. So yes, most probably you can use WASAPI (WDM) only. Otherwise what you see in the properties is not KS related at all (KS does not use the settings in there). With this I want to say : don't seek for the 768 number in there. Only seek for where KS went. OK, you *are* doing that of course.

Let me know how you fare.

Best regards,
Peter

Arvind, ... well ...

Only last week I promised an other customer that I would start working on a power cable. I wanted to start sorting that out last weekend, but all sorts of things came in between.

What I intend anyway, is creating/"designing" the best possible theory, make x cords of in total xx meters for myself, and then apply them everywhere where it is relevant. I mean, I feel that using them for one component only, would be a too simple test.

If my theory fails, we will have made them all for nothing. But that's life.
N.b.: For the Lush^1 it also required IIRC 5 versions before it worked. But that was only one cable ...

The power cord will be based on the sheer fact that "the last meter" makes all the difference in the world because there too it will be about (self-)radiation. So the first 20m to the wall outlet does not suffer from that. And this will justify the "boutique" power cord.
Took me more than 10 years before I started believing in it, WHILE prior to my Phasure life I simply used boutique cables (made by myself). But this was in another house and with an older system (all different components from what I have now).

FWI, the final test will be working other way around;
I may replace the new power cord of the Audio PC with the stock one and see if that makes a difference. Next, put it back, and do the same with the DAC. ... and there are a few more components ...

Thank you for asking and I hope something will come from this soon !

Hey Stanley,

Well, that is too difficult to follow for me. This is not only caused by a missing word I think.

In my setup I have a separate router to establish a wireless RDC connection between a laptop

My view on the Ethernet cable between Music Server PC and router : It can't matter. I didn't try it either.
But there are more cables by now I never tried because I was quite sure it could not matter ... haha

It is not easy for me to try because of the required length here.

Regards,
Peter

That is not so bad ...
hahaha

OK, it is. But at least we can make it, if needed.

Hips - oops

Tore, yes, that's right. Btw I never tried that.
But you may recall the BlueTooth PAN (dongle-thing). That was for a similar reason and it worked "lower profile" (read about Nick's interrupts).

10  Ultimate Audio Playback / Cables (Community induced) / Re: ET^3 on: February 27, 2021, 01:49:55 pm

Haha, no problem. But there's quite some talk lately about the influence of Ethernet switches and how they simply can't influence SQ (while they do). So from there spring the "pull the cable", with claims that it can because DACs suppose to have a buffer etc. and blablaba.

I realize that in our situation (XXHighEnd) we can do that for real.
Don't try this at home because at reconnecting you will find a black screen and the Audio PC has to be rebooted.
OK, you could try it one time. Happy

Regards,
Peter

Put in the ET^3 in the set up & the immediate reaction is significant reduction in the noise level as compared to stock Ethernet cable.

I would rate this as high as the Lush^3 upgrade.

Thank you Arvind. I'm glad it works out !

Hi Tore,

I think this can be tested by removing the Ethernet cable while playing ?

Not that anyone would listen to me in those places you get these videos from, but ... you must be watching the wrong videos. And you know it, because you already know what difference "cables", while those videos claim and proved they can't make a difference.

If you only watch porn then I apologize.
haha

It is not said at all that removing a cable will work out for the better, because you'd (or might) block outgoing current from the attached device, in this case the Audio PC. Thus when there's a potential difference between PC and DAC then this might be harmless because the difference can balance out between the Audio PC and Music Server PC. Remove the cable and the current will flow over the USB cable between Audio PC and DAC.
Of course I am making this up on the spot, but try to debunk it ... Happy
(which is not necessary for such "sites" because with them all is inaudible to begin with)

Peter

Thank you George. But not so over here.
Notice that rights to albums differ per country.

Btw, I will survive and grab one of the others from her.

Best regards,
Peter

Hi Kenny,

I think the version with that Cover only has one track.
https://tidal.com/browse/album/172544703

Btw, I'd like to ask whether when you found an album in Tidal anyway, it is possible to get the link (under Share in there) and paste it in the topic, like I did above.

Notice that in XXHighEnd we can use that link directly to play the album.

Thanks once again !
Peter
