Hello,
About the AKM 4493 chip I can say that sounds very good to me. I got the I2S signals from my soundcard before the original AKM 4396 dac chip to feed the new one and it was a great leap in SQ.
Bear in mind that I canīt compare with anything but the DACs I owned before : Cambridge DACMagic ( Wolfson ) and  the original Audiotrak Prodigy soundcard (AKM4396). As a (frugal) audiophile I am completely isolated in my environment. Sad

 I was planning to do the same thing with another broken soundcard I have lying around and the AKM4497 chip but currently is out of stock.

Hello Peter,

As others have said, the new version represents a great improvement. You can notice right away and especially in passages of great sound density that now sound effortless  with greater clarity and less distortion. And although I've been enjoying a lot all this time the wait was well worth it.

Thank you and Best Regards

Hello David,

I am using an  ASRock Z97M Pro4 without separate graphics card and I have no problem loading a RAM OS with 16 Gb RAM. Well, mine it isn't  the canonic Peter's RAM OS, but I think you will not have any problem.

I made it this morning. I have the original poster in front of me when I am listening music and thought that it reflects pretty well the situation after eigth days of confinement here in Madrid.

Best Regards to everybody.

Hello Peter,

although it was only a silly joke, after seeing this I feel a little guilty for having seemed impatient.

Hello Stein,
 
My profile is updated and those settings work perfectly on my DAC. The best so far.

if possible for your DAC, try to use KS Special Mode. If it works without ticks or buffer errors, it is "the best" (sadly not possible for NOS1 users).

Surfing the topic I found this that I've missed before so I gave it a try and the sound ...  Shocked ... ahh the sound is the most transparent and fluid than never before. The strings are more "stringy" to say it somehow.

Thank you guys for bring up this subject and thank you Peter for pointing it out for non NOS users. I had forgot this parameter for a long time. I tend to follow Peter's settings to the letter but I must bear in mind that my DAC is different.

Best regards

Hello Peter,

Understood (I think), obviously I was missing something: the larger OS on the SDD.
The truth is that I I never thought about the possibility/necessity/convenience of make the space for the OS larger. I made it of 11,4 GB and the system tells me that I have only 821 MB free.
I simply thought it was better not to make it too big considering the available RAM.
The OS load quite faster, but I only had in mind have a copy because although I was taking notes when I did the original disk I am not sure I can reply the whole process succesfully swoon.


Thank you very much!

Hello Peter,

Since my RAM OS was in an old recycled HDD I decided make a backup copy in an SDD just looking to the  future because rigth now I only have 16 GB RAM. Once copied I tried it just to verify that it was OK but for my surprise  all run flawlessly with only 16GB.                               
Am I wrong or it was supposed that you need 32GB RAM to use the RAM OS on SSD? scratching. Of course you have checked, my RAM OS is sui generis and probably  I am missing  something, but I would like to let you know because there maybe someone who doesn't purchase an SSD RAM OS just because not enough RAM.   

Best Regards

Maxi

PS. BTW the sound with the last settings is the best i've ever had.

Thank you for your explanation!

one of us can have the absolute phase inverted (which easily can be me).

When you drive your car into the highway and all the other cars come in front of you chances are that you took the wrong direction.  So Iīm afraid that is me. wacko

For the moment I am playing with phase inverted and everything is fine!

Thank you!

Maxi, you mean the effect of Inverted Phase was not to noticable ?

Peter, in any case much less obvious than with the latest adjustments.

Hi Peter,

the effect with previous settings was hardly noticeable ( I try Invert Phase from time to time. For me is some kind of panic button )  blush1

Best regards
