Lucky we Phasure Playback System owners don't need anymore than Redbook resolution to have absolutely phenomenal SQ.   Cool

I do have the Amazon and it is cd resolution but I do not stream except to my phone.

Hi Dave
Yes I am using with the RCA adapters from the original Blaxius cables. I think both of us did not really feel the original Blaxius made a noticeable difference in our systems. Well I am here to tell you that is not the case with the Blaxius ^2. I am not sure if you have the Lush ^2 as of yet but I am using them both together which I understand from Peter is very important.

My system sound has transformed so much with these that my guess is you will not recognize it from the last time you visited. I have addressed room resonance issues and will soon have dedicated tweeters installed.

The 3D experience Peter, then Ramesh and now me are speaking of is just unbelievable. My guess is after your next visit here you will be updating your connections. It must be getting boring to hear me say it again but it is the best my system has ever sounded. You heard it with the G3, then the Mach III. Now you hear it again with the Lush^2 and now the Blaxius ^. Trust me when I say the sound for sure is not boring.

Come up and hear the White Album. Bring extra underwear teasing

OMG the transformation is absolutely instantaneous from the very first note. If I did not know Peter there is no way I could imagine break-in making it better. I will play with settings but not for a while.


Blaxius ^2 Happy new year ! love this sounds good ! Nice  This is for real

Hi all
I find myself guilty of a lack of posting for a little while now Sad

But it has not been from any malaise. Truth is I've been super busy at work and most of my spare time has been spent listening. The music has been sounding incredible.

It is time to change my system signature as I have new speakers...or should I say old...older than I am. Custom made Altec 288 from the late 1940s converted to 277 field coils.

A system only sounds as good as its source. With the  Mach III, NOS1a/G3, Lush^2 I have the most musical source I have ever heard. Peter, keep an eye out for a new order at the online shop for a Blaxius^2. Cool

Sorry for an OT post here a in couple of ways, BUT I was 16 years old when The Beatles White album, Hendrix's Electric Ladyland, and Moody Blues In Search of the Lost Chord all came out in 1968. The remastered 50th anniversary albums are fantastic to these old ears. They are just sublime in my system.

Speakers older than I am, playing 50 year old music sounding better than ever through a 21st century state of the art Phasure Digital music source. It doesn't get better than this....Until Peter says it does yahoo

We were there last night just shaking our heads in disbelief. Not sure how much Lush^2 had to do with this but we guessed it did.

So Peter, can I get a refund on those 4 cores I don't need any more innocent whistle
6  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd PC / Re: Phasure Mach III Audio PC with Linear Power Supply on: August 31, 2018, 11:47:59 am
Last night Music 33 came over and we changed (Dave did but it was easy even for me) from my 14/28 cores to 10/20 in the Bios.

Absolutely stunning transformation AGAIN shout
7  Ultimate Audio Playback / Cables (Community induced) / Re: The greatest invention in/for Audio (Lush^2) on: August 25, 2018, 03:33:24 pm
Ok
There are many possible combinations here. Check Peter's settings or the photos above. I changed to those the other night and I found much more than the extra bass I heard the night before.

The musical "window" opened even wider, and more real.
My musical involvement is now in this new universe.

From my Mach III post - Keep exploring Henry whistle

I have to chime in here as well but I will post in Lush^2 also.

The Mach III brought me to a huge step up in musical realism I had not encountered before. Ramesh it is great to hear your experience is the same. And we are all struggling to find the words while not exaggerating what we are now hearing.

I totally agree I loved the sound of the Mach II with its own step up of musical realism. It never ceases to amaze me that a change in computer is more than A DAC upgrade. More than a digital upgrade. It is a music upgrade.

I am no big fan of the tweaking and fidgeting of all the settings and the idiosyncrasies that come with a computer designed to disappear and get out of the way to let the unadulterated music signal go through itself and through the entire playback system to my ears. Peter is the explorer here. I am content to follow his settings and recommendations. I have never been led astray.

I confess here I am no history buff. In fact I googled this to come up with the name BUT....

Peter is the Henry Hudson of the digital age clapping

Thanks very much Peter. The photos really helped me. I did do it correctly and tonight I will experiment sounds good !

Hi Peter
Any chance you can post actual photos (instead of drawings) of both ends as you have them configured?

I connected my Lush^2 as I think you said but I am not certain. I am not hearing a large difference, but I do think there is noticeable increase in bass response of my system. I am still evaluating and will report back in a day or 2. Thanks
11  Ultimate Audio Playback / Your thoughts about the Sound Quality / Re: 2.10 sound quality on: July 21, 2018, 01:44:25 pm
When I read Robert's post I had to try the new settings with those exact songs.

We have similar tastes Robert, as I love Jennifer and while pretty new to Melody I like her very much. After that I went into some Leonard Cohen himself followed by a few covers of Halleluiah.

Sound on all sounded great on the new settings. It was not until I went back that I really could hear the difference. I just could not keep the old settings for very long. It's not that the sound was bad... far from it. It's just my ears got used to something better. Kind of like every time Peter makes an improvement on hardware. Now it' settings. keep experimenting Peter. I am along for the ride You will get there !
12  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd PC / Re: Phasure Mach III Audio PC with Linear Power Supply on: July 20, 2018, 03:24:00 am
Ok I have done some serious listening using both sets of settings.

The new recommended settings do sound different and I would say better but not dramatically so. When the sound of the music is as good as it already is; even not dramatically better is still a significant improvement. For me the most noticeable changes are a greater sense of richness of tone and not sure how to describe the next change but I'll try.

It almost seems that the music seem to be  "slower" with the new settings. By slower I am not talking about quickness and speed, but rather you seem to hear and process the music with a greater sense of detailed recording space and my mind seems to have more time to better resolve the musical picture. I am not sure my explanation make sense to anyone but I really do not know how else to describe it.

2 music tracks I am very familiar with, both from a live perspective(seen both artists many times) and recorded (listened to may times) are Lucinda Williams album - This Sweet Old World and song "Sidewalks of the City" and Bruce Cockburn album  Charity of the Night and song "Strange Waters" illustrate the sense of increased tone and better resolved musical picture.

Lucinda's track just oozes tonality. Check out the guitar and her voice. So naturally raspy and life-like.

With Bruce the song is filled with musical detail a good amount which seemed to be of that cliché "hearing new details on very familiar recordings". The treble and the bass both extremely lifelike together.

Both songs sound just fantastic and I'll be keeping these new settings. Thanks

there's an intensity (or emphasis) to the message brought

That is a great English description of how I feel when listening now.

Another bonus is I find myself spending more time with the music than I was before.

Hey Music33 you heard the system the other night. What did you think?
