Hi Peter,

Spent the weekend with a focus on reaching the original settings on the Orelo. Finally managed it with the following settings/changes.

SFS 80.19
Q1=30, xQ1=1
Moved the sweet spot back (away from the speakers) by 16Ē.

Some fine tuning still needed. Will attempt later this week.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Stanley,

It has been my experience, if your SFS is high, like 60.19 (as per your signature), you need to bring down xQ otherwise you get the problem of data not arriving in time.

Maybe you could try this out.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Peter,

No, the bass output is currently lower by 1.5dB from the original Orelo settings as shipped out by you.

I doubt if any more breaking in of the Blaxius ^2 is reqd but I do intend to move the listening position to see if I can come back to the original settings of the Orelo. Maybe this weekend.

 SFS & Q settings have not given the desired effect in the bass range. Hence I had to resort to reducing Orelo bass output eventually.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Peter,

From the original setting, given by you, I had to lower the bass output by 0.5dB, at the time I had the Mach II PC, Lush & Blaxius.

Now with the MachIII, Lush^2 & the Blaxius ^2, I was urged to reduce it further by 1dB (more so after the Blaxius ^2)

I find the bass overpowering & tends to subdue the mids & highs.

Currently my Q, SFS, etc settings are as per my signature, which are the same as yours.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Peter,

I prefer to comment once Iím sure that the SQ is consistent. Hence takes a while.

Incidentally I forgot to mention, in my earlier post, that after connecting the Blaxius ^2, I had to reduce the low frequency output of the Orelo by 1dB.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Peter,

The streams to be prepared are in the XXTT folder & then are moved to XXTemp folder once the streams are prepared.

Currently in the XXTT/Tidal folder only the albums (files) which I have accessed from Tidal are present. Awaiting my command to prepare streams.

The album names appear in the 1st pane of XXHE ( in the music server) but no cover art is visible in the centre pane.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Peter,

Sorry for the late response. Couldnít find anything in that post related to this problem.

Iím sure nothing has been changed by you, since this problem didnít exist prior to Sept.

Itís strange though.

No cover art visible until I select the album in the 1st pane. Pls refer to the image above.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi guys,

I have been using the Blaxius ^2 since 2weeks & by now itís pretty much broken in. The first reaction is the tightening of the lower end & significantly more clarity in upper mids & highs.

I must say that the SQ, in my set up, has seriously evolved over the past few months with the addition of the Mach III initially thereafter the Lush^2 & now the Blaxius^2.

Thank you so much Peter for relentlessly improving our music listening experience.

Best regards,

Arvind

Yes, I set it to 10/20.

Hi Peter,

Is it still the better configuration(SQ wise) to operate 10/20 cores instead of 14/28 cores on the Mach III 14/28?

Honestly I havenít attempted 14/28 since day one.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Peter,

Would a 500GB SSD be sufficient?

Hi Guys,

If anyone thinks ďwhereís the smearĒ with his present set up, heís in for a wonderful surprise, once he hooks up the Mach III to his set up.

This is my very first reaction with the Mach III. The low end is deeper, tuneful & louder, without any colour.

The Lush ^2 compliments the Mach III & fine tunes the improvements brought about by the Mach III.

Kudos to Peter for the brilliant Mach III & the Lush^2.

Enjoying every minute of the very musical experience.

Best regards,

Arvind
13  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd PC / Need to remove Video card from Mach III? on: October 02, 2018, 08:59:19 am
Hi Peter,

As in the Mach II, is it better, for SQ, to remove the video card from the Mach III too?

Best regards,

Arvind

Not likely Peter. In the past issue I wasnít getting the Coverart while playback of FLAC files in Unattended mode.

In this case Iím not getting the Coverart in the centre pane with Library clicked, only with Tidal hdd. Local hdd shows all the Coverart, FLAC or WAV.

The two issues are quite different in my opinion.

Hi Peter,

Music Server:
If I access my local hdd, I get all the cover art. However if I access the Tidal Hdd, no Coverart is seen.

Audio PC.
I get Coverart from Local as well as Tidal hdd.

Best regards,

Arvind
