You don't need to convert FLAC to WAV.
XXHE will play FLAC, converting it automatically when you press PLAY.

Hi Peter

Its:- Custom Filter 352800 low (NOS)

It happens on peaks in music. Also on 0dB sine test tone, switch your amps off first if you try this.

Not particularly a problem, I posted this in case others are using 0dB & get cracks.

I got Crack Detect occurring recently but discovered my volume was 0dB in XXHE. Went back to my normal -3dB and no more Crack.
0dB with upsampling filters can cause Cracks, I think it was mentioned on the forum a while ago.

You don't need Virtual memory although it won't do any harm except maybe to sound quality.

Maybe you have a faulty RAM card, do a memory test, might be an option in bios to do it.

Hi Peter

The normal means of changing these setting would be within XXHE Normal OS booted from RAM-OS disk, Yes?.

But the time setting are correct already in this boot.

Its when I boot it from memory that the setting are wrong.

Patched 2.10 over 2.09 and booting from RAM-OS disk and TS is Stable, TPI is optimal. So all good & as they were in 2.09.

Start 2.10 from RAM however and TS is Not Stable, TPI is Not the best. Applied Refresh of course in both boots.

Other settings OK & same for both boots.

Just one recommendation:-
"Patricia Barber - A Distortion of Love"
Not new but only just available in MQA. Sound quality is up there with the best.

9  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Streaming Data Folder - Request on: January 07, 2018, 05:29:36 pm
Hi Peter

It would be more convenient when using the "move to streams data folder" if it could move to my music folder. I set my music folder as location to do this but XXHE adds a tidal sub folder and puts in there.

If artist already exists only the album needs to be moved otherwise artist & album would be moved.

Something for future XXHE version perhaps.

Best Regards, Colin

Hi Peter

I think it is XXVL.dat  it is not saved from A:..... to C:.......

Thanks for all your work this year especially MQA which is sounding good now, I've gone back to adaptive by the way.

Hope TIDAL survives

Have a good Christmas

Just checked again & Q changes are still saved, just volume that is not changed.
At some time in past it must have worked otherwise it would be booting at default installation volume.

Hi Peter

Its not me I never make same mistake twice (well hardly ever) haha.

All other setting changes are being saved.

I normally shutdown via STOP, just tried closing XX & shutting down via Windows but Volume is still not saved.

15  Ultimate Audio Playback / Your thoughts about the Sound Quality / Re: Best Settings for MQA Sound Quality on: November 20, 2017, 10:13:07 am
Nice post Mani:- Well I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying exploring MQA-encoded music with the NOS1 at the moment. There tends to be a clarity to the sound that I really like. To my ears it's a bit like comparing AP to AI filtering - AP tends to lose the LF bloom but is simply more accurate-sounding and more life-like.

Guys, it's obvious to me that Peter must have spent a lot of time and effort sorting MQA out for XX. I think we owe it to him to at least try it and give our feedback.

I have been working with MQA a few weeks now & I quite agree with your SQ comments & complements to Peter.
----------
My DAC is NOS but not NOS1(a) it needs different settings to get good SQ from MQA but these a fine with redbook as well.

Main change is to KS Mode = Special, *Q1 must = 1 to avoid sound brake up / distortion. Q4 =1 or 2 improves SQ but only for first tracks played, next tracks in playlist result in sound brake up. Q4=3 working nicely at moment.

If you have a DAC other than NOS1(a) give KS Mode = Special a try, of course you may need other Q setting than mine.

Colin
