I just ran into this interesting site www.sbooster.com.
Is this known technology or has it something to add to our dacs?

That's the way I did it.
Tried a new unzip in a new folder but same result.

Hi Peter,

I tried to install vs. 2.08 on my laptop which was XXHE-free previously.
It wont start when I click on xxhighend.exe.
It says I installed it in a folder with spaces in the name.
But where are the spaces in C:\XXHE?
Did I mess up/not read all the info / something else?

Regards,

Gerard.

Would this help:?

For implementation manufacturers, we have two potential routes to market for supporting MQA on your products: (1) by you supporting the MQA engineering team and getting them up-and-running with your development platform. This way, they can port the technology themselves (minimising engineering costs on your side) and generate object code to supply to product manufacturers; or (2) by becoming an Implementation Licensee, which would give you access to MQA source code. You would then port the MQA technology to your platform in-house, and distribute the MQA technology as firmware at the point of sale. For more information about getting MQA implemented on your platform, please contact us.

Very interesting but confusing. Is 586 ok or nok? Still need to install 10074?

Today I bought 25 in vinyl and that sounded like it should! I (we?) have to apologize to Adele, she really can sing and the recording quality is top of the bill!

After thanksgiving I'll see if I can make a digital copy with my new ADC-toy and compare with the other (downloaded) versions I've got. One version from vinyl on mp3 and one from cd on flac. With q5=2 they sound ok but my vinyl gives a bit more acoustical space. Let's see what will be the result... Happy

I tried Q5 = 2 but won't comment! Wink
Everybody should try for them selves...

Hi Peter,

Thanks for this personal verdict, it makes me less bothered to tell about some negative things I experienced over here.
After being away from xxhe for some time because of pc-problems I finally got to installing Win 10 (565) on my htpc and the new 2.03 version.
The first song I played, Hello from Adele, (to keep the WAF up) started to sound good, but when she raises her voice it becomes unbearable. As if she has a chainsaw in stead of the worlds best female voice...
Using a headphone to check if it was my new tubes made it worse.
Then going to windows media player I could listen to the song again and even enjoy it!
So are you sure there's no bugs been creeping in?
It sounds to me like more than 1% distortion in the presence region, maybe crossover?
Hope this helps and you can solve it!

Good luck  Wink,

Gerard(A).

He Peter,
It seems Pono uses the Meridian technology. Stereophile was very positive about it. And now I find Pono-flac-files on usenet.
Is this going to be in XXHE?

Or this one:

BNC used between preamp and poweramp in stead of digital connection to DAC.

Thanks!
It did not help but it helped!

Setting Q1 to 14 was not possible it was 18 but wanted to go to 13 or 16 but not 14. I tried to reset the Phase24FW but no help.
So out of frustration tried the hiface again and surprise, surprise it worked again and XXHE plays better then ever.
(Also got a new belt for my recordplayer today so my day is good again! Wink)

Hi Coen,

Thanks for your quick reply.
But it looks like I'm in big sh*t!
I have no NOS...
Could be my Terratec phase 24FW is giving the problem then.

( I used to use a m2tech hiface to my DIY-dac but after installing Win 8.1 update 1 it did not work anymore. I still had a terratech phase 24FW, that did not work too, but after restart of pc it works.. unhappy.
Then I connected digital out of the phase24 to my DAC and it works. But now XXHE doesn't seem to like it)

And BTW does anybody know why I need to restart the PC to get some sound?

Hi Peter,

Lately I try to play in XXHE and get the error 'Set State (Pause) on pin'.
No playing is possible.
Is there something I can do to prevent this?

Regards,

Gerard (A)

Yeah, sounds too good to be true, digital sounding like analog!
Wonder if it is just HighRes...
If not I'm sure you can make something like it. Wink
