16  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd PC / Mach 111 SQ on: June 18, 2018, 03:05:52 am
After receiving the 14/28 Mach lll the beginning of last week. It took me until this past weekend to get the music server reconfigured and the system finally up and playing music. I have not seen any posts on the Mach lll so I am wondering if anyone except Michael and myself have taken the plunge.

Well let me be the first to speak of SQ with the new Mach lll in the system. The way to best describe my initial reaction in a word is "shocking".

You would think that after starting with the NOS1 then going to the NOS1a then going to the G3 and adding the Stealth and of course the RAM OS, I would be prepared for the change. I just am not. I am shocked every time Peter moves the bar for SOTA digital playback.

Before this latest change, my system already sounded fantastic. Bass was great; Soundstage tremendous; Imaging first rate; Vocals and instruments lifelike and musical and emotional involvement just incredible.

This change with the Mach lll computer is extreme. I apologize for all the previous superlatives but I just keep running out of phrases that do justice to the changes I am hearing and feeling. I do not want bore other forum members. So I apologize in advance

Bass was great. Now comes a dramatic increase in bass information and articulation with individual instruments NATURALLY focused within the soundstage.

Soundstage now is downright spooky. Aural room cues and previously unheard details coming from everywhere in the room: front, center, high, low, far left and right and even behind on some recordings...the listening room disappears and is replaced by the venue where the performance was recorded. LOL my speakers disappeared with Peter a long time ago.

Imaging, Vocals and Instruments are completely cohesive and 3 dimensional. Believability became even more intense; realistic breathing vocals and instruments assuming their proportionate places and roles within the recording space.

Musical and emotional involvement. For me this is what it is all about. It is why I love music and why I love the hobby. I go to live musical performances and I own recordings of my favorite performers. Many are still with us more than a few are not. If I can come home after work play some of these recordings, close my eyes, go back in time, revisit the live experience, dive into performer's music, lyrics and emotional expression and remember where I was at the time and also feel those same feelings in the present moment. If I can hear them play and witness their passion, that is real for me.

The Mach lll really moved me forward in the realm of emotional involvement. It made finding that place easier and more believable for me than ever before. That is no small accomplishment. Thanks Peter. You have done it again. Why should I be so shocked (-:

Hi Michael
Welcome to the forum...even if you are really the first Wink

Once I receive the Stealth MACH III I will be able to compare the SQ of both. I am also having a spare NOSI upgraded. I will probably let that burn in with a second system. My guess is it will take some time to break in as did my first G3 upgrade. It's nice to have options good

I have not heard the LEEDH E2 speakers. From what I have read they are excellent and quite unique. Who knows, we are only 4 hours apart as I am in southern New Hampshire. I'll check my system description as I have made some changes. A bit more traditional but it sounds quite good.

Looking forward to hearing your comments.  Welcome !

My guess is while I may be the first, I doubt I'll be the last Happy

OK Peter. I have been thinking about this since you first made mention.  I don't need the new addiction description as I have passed that point long ago innocent

I am officially asking to be put on the list for ordering the Mach 3. I will PM you about details. At the same time I would like to send you my my spare NOS1 to be modified to NOS1a status. I'll pm you about this also. Thanks Peter. Enjoy your last Sunday as I expect you will be very busy for some time now. teasing ok

I am a Phasure NOS1a and G3 music computer owner who does not post on the forum very often.

I would like to offer to anyone who is just now discovering Peter and XXhighend through the Lush USB cable my totally unsolicited yet extremely biased opinion.

If you are looking for SOTA sound quality, extraordinary support and service with cutting edge digital technology. You have come to the right place. Welcome

I finally had a chance to listen last night to the G3 B'ASS. It had been burning I since the day before.

To quote Arjan All I can say is WOW*WOW sounds good ! love this

This is not a subtle upgrade and I concur with Paul that it is much more than better bass. Honestly, I have always had what I consider great bass but with the G3 along with bass there also seems to be a non existent noise floor with everything in focus to a degree I never believed possible. Detail retrieval is just staggering. The emotional impact of the music is conveyed like never before.

I had the opportunity to be able to use an original NOS1 during the time I sent my NOS1a for the G3 upgrade. Listening to the original I was quickly aware of why I was drawn to Phasure and Peter's labors of love in the first place. It is a great sounding DAC which I could live with forever.

The fact that Peter has been able to make these advances in SQ beyond the original NOS1 is true testimony to his dedication to achieving the best music reproduction possible.

Thank you Peter.  Thank you ! Happy new year ! Nice

Take a bow  Tadaaaa
