Hi Peter,

Would XXHE work on Mac with windows vista o/s? If yes would this be better than a PC?

Hi Peter,

Seems like I am almost there but some small thing is still missing. After rebooting I click on the Autohotkey-shortcut on the desktop & this creates the green H Icon in the taskbar tray. If I right click on this & select "reload the script" there is no pop up.

Presently while playing unattended I am unable to open XXHE, using the Hotkey, so it seems I am still missing something.

Hi Peter,

This is exactly what I have; I forgot to mention that the XX.ahk file also exists in the c:\AutoHK folder. Now when I click on the Shortcut Icon I get the following message:
Header is XX.ahk
An older instance of this script is already running....

Hi Peter,

Let me start from the beginning:
I have created a folder C:\xxHighend\0.9y-3 where I have extracted all the files from the zip.
In this there are 2 files Auto Hotkey & Auto Hotkey-shortcut.
I copied the file Auto Hotkey & pasted it another folder C:\Auto Hotkey
With the other file (Auto Hotkey -shortcut), I moved this to the desktop.
Now when I click on the shortcut icon on the desktop, I get the msg mentioned in my earlier message.

Hi Peter,

I can understand the difficulty, especially from a distance, however I have faith in this technology, especially on XXHE & I will leave no stone unturned to make this successful. Let me go about eliminating some components/connectors & come to the root cause of this problem.

Hi Peter,

I followed the instructions for installing Autohotkey however when I click on the desktop shortcut I get the following message:
"The drive or network connection the Autohotkey shortcut refers to is not available......"

What could be the reason for this?

Hi Peter,

Being a totally rock guy finding a piano piece is really tough. So the next best was to use Phil Collins- Against all odds, which has some piano piece. Anyway the result of setting Q2 & 3 to 30 is as follows:
The low bass has become more prominent. The mids are about the same but the highs have become sharper (not in a disturbing way)

I hope this helps.

Hi Guys,

In my set up I am still finding CD sounding much better than XXHE. Dont know if it is the Soundcard (Off Ramp) or some other factor influencing this. Other than the laptop & sound card the rest of the equipments are the same in both comparison. I have asked a friend to lend me his Empirical Audio Overdrive DAC to do a comparison, maybe it is the DAC which makes it sound different. The reason why I say this is that with the CD Transport it uses a different input ( EMM Proprietary Link) whereas with the Off Ramp it is AES/EBU. This may make some difference.

Just trying to eliminate the variables.

Hi Peter,

No possibility of headphones; there are no jacks & I dont possess one too. Guess I have to wait for the new version.

I too am surprised why the volume is so low; almost unaudible.

Hi Peter,

Back fresh from vacation to attack the SQ issue. Ok, now as suggested by you I removed the preamp from the circuit & connected the DAC directly to the amps. Ofcourse I had to keep the off ramp due to the connection issue discussed earlier. To my surprise there is a very faint sound from the speakers; which means the DAC cannot drive the amps even with XXHE on 0 dB. According to this I have to keep the preamp in the circuit.

HI Peter,

I problem I foresee is the connection between my laptop & the DAC. DAC input is only AES/EBU. So how do I go about doing it? My Laptop is Sony Vaio.

I cant go shorter than 2 mtrs interconnect between DAC & amps.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the suggestions. I propose to go in this sequence.a. Try the laptop sound card, removing the OffRamp. b.Remove the preamp from the circuit.
BTW how do you connect your PC to the DAC? Do you use XX for volume control?

I am going to be out on vacation for a week so will try it on my return.
