Hi Michael,
Nice story and the best choice you could make!
Now I understand that the CPU is from the gold serie and not the silver serie. So in therms of CPU it is really a step up from the 26-serie.
Peter, am I right? Any thoughts on this decision?

Hi,
Have you tried, clock resolution=0.5, nervous rate=1 and Q3=0?
See my details for the other settings, this gave me some extra drive in the low end.

Hi All,

Yes, 2.10 is really nice.
Just played a bit around with settings, started off from the settings of Peter.
But ended with: clock resolution=0.5ms, nervous rate=1 and Q3=0 (again). Very nice low drive and good clearance.

regards

Hi Peter,

With the CPU ratio on default Auto the base CPU speed seems higher. Is that true? If so 43 will result in a higher CPU speed then before. Or is that a wrong assumption?

Hi Peter,

Just to be sure:

Only disable Turbo Boost and CPU Ratio will reset to Auto?
or
Disable Turbo Boost and CPU Ratio back on All Core and All Core on 18.

regards, Arjan

Hi Peter,
Thanks for trying Arc Prediction. I tried all the custom filters and for a long time I loved Low. But after more listening I must say the Mid might be the best for me.

But then I tried Arc Prediction again and for me this sounded really honest. That is how I would call the SQ, the most honest I have ever heard. You could call it dry, but it is o so real.

The only area I am not sure about is the bass. It is sometimes, depending on the type of music, a bit overwhelming. But on the other hand in todays music that is sometimes the case. So maybe it is in the mix.

regards

Hi,
Try Q3 and Q5 on 0.
For me that always at some extra roundness.

Hi Peter,
I was not able to test the solution of Ramesh anymore.

I did a reinstall of XXHE on my home laptop and after that all was okay......
So just reinstall of XXHE can also help.

By the way, I am now listening to real MQA and at first not happy. Lean and a bit harsh.... I liked the wrong MQA's or what it was.....
But the higher SFS (12) solved it!

regards, Arjan

Hi Peter,
Out of the box.
I missed Ramesh solution. Will try it on the others laptop.

Hi Peter,

Tried the music server first, but same issue. This is an from windows8 upgraded pc.

Next the work laptop (real windows10) and that works fine.
Saw that for the first MQA download two extra installs were done.

No time to listen now, will do that another evening this week.

regards

Hi Peter,

No problem, will do.

But what am I listening to now? Placebo.....?

Hi Peter,

The Tidal PC is a Windows 8 laptop with XXHE 2.09 on it.

I get the attached error when downloading the MQA files.
But it is only about the Sample Rate logo....although.

For test I have unpacked the dll's from the 208VCRT-x64.rar. But that did not change anyting...

Maybe I have the reinstall XXHE on the laptop?

regards

Hi Peter,

Attached the screens. The Endless River of Pink Floyd I tried it a couple of times and every time the tracks ended to soon. Example track 2 ends after 3 or so minutes.

I also tried Ghost Stories of Coldplay and that album gave no issues.

regards

Hi,
Maybe just a setting, but when I play MQA albums the tracks are ended to soon. They are halfway when new track starts.
With single tracks no issues.
As far as I know I use the currently best suggested settings.

By the way I like the SQ of MQA, fuller and rounder sound. Not harsh at all!
Regards
