Peter you were right, finally moved back to Win7 SP1 with Mini OS functionality - sounds indeed better than W2008 SP2.

I have SOTM USB in my system and the best combination for the sound quality is when I use SOTM for my keyboard and WiFi, and plug my NOS1 to one of computers integrated USB ports. NOS1 is the exclusive device using integrated USB ports. I know you might consider this stupid, but NOS1 sounds the best to me when plugged to the mainboard.

Hi Peter,

I have Windows 2008 Service Pack 2 (not R2) 64-bit, and in empty playlist area I have
XXHighEnd Vista/S.

I am very happy with Win2008, to me it sounds the best from all Windows family.

Best regards
Jarek

I see most of you guys have Clock Resolution in XXHighEnd set to 15 ms, whilst I have 0,5 ms. Truly, in my system it sounds less digital and edgy when clock is 0,5ms than 15 ms.

I have bigger room ambiance and the soundstage with dbPoweramp target set to 24/192 than to 16/44,1. It sounds "richer" then regular rip, more like hi-resolution tracks. Maybe it is artificial, I do not know - I like it more at least with XXHighEnd and NOS1.

I can hear also a difference between Windows 2008 SP2 and Windows 7 SP1 (both 64-bit). I have them on dual boot. I think that sound from Win2008 is more pleasing. I cannot find a better words to describe it. Win2008 has better combination of resolution and emotionality.

As regards to SFS I like setting of 120. It is OK for me, I do not feel it sounds any worse than 430 in my system.

Hi Peter,

maybe I should start the next topic, but it is still related to my tests to get the best sound and NOS1.

I have i5 660 processor, and if I specify SFS of 200 I have sometimes breakes in music. If I specify 430 I have 1-3 seconds brakes between tracks. I specified 120 and now is OK. I see you and most of NOS1 guys have SFS 400 . Should I upgrade to better processor ?

Also, physically I have 2 core processor, but system sees 4 cores. How many cores does XXHighEnd see ? Is it a metter to switch hyperthreading on/off somewhere ? What should I set then ?

Thank you

Theoretical considerations are important, but... try and hear it for your own ears.

My ears tell me that I got MUCH better sound when ripping regular CD by dbPowerump to 24/192 wave and then playing it with XXHighEnd x16 than ripping to native format 16/44,1 and playing also with XXHighEnd x16.

I got nothing but bright sound. The sound is very detailed in a right way. The soundstage is huge, stable and sound is perfect, at least in my system of course.

Hi Peter,

I got the same problem with second track today. I played 24/192 album, and got message "No track:, or similar, than "The file does not exists" or something. On second trial everything was OK.

YES. Here is my experience, try for yourself and share your impression.

Rip your favorite CD by using dbPoweramp to Wave and specify format target as 24/192. Play it with NOS1 USB and 32/768kHz / ARC prediction. I did it and almost got fiver because of it ! Now I am reripping my favorite CDs to 24/192 to hear them all again !

Peter, congratulation for your work ! Another happy owner of NOS1 is here !

11  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / ALAC files on: November 05, 2011, 03:38:57 pm
Hello Peter,

Do you plan to support ALAC ? It is open source format now.

http://alac.macosforge.org/

If somebody wants to use his music library for PC and MAC (as I do with NOS1), this is the best choice format I suppose.

12  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / e-mail problem on: November 03, 2011, 04:06:03 pm
Hi Peter,
I cannot send you e-mail, tried today from 3 different accounts. Your server reports as follows:

phcom_sales@localhost.heartprofit.nl
#< #5.0.0 X-Postfix; cannot access mailbox /var/spool/mail/phcom_sales for user phcom_sales. error writing message: File too large> #SMTP#

Can you fix it ? I am trying to report a problem...

13  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: 0.9z-4-1 SFS limit ? on: February 28, 2011, 12:33:05 pm
Hello Peter,

can you explain the SFS allocation limits on 64-bit system with plenty of memery ?

I have 16GB RAM on 64bit Windows Vista Ultimate.
Looking into task manager I see 1,4GB allocated memory after sturtup (Vista is hungry).
Why I cannot allocate maximum SC of about 400 or 500 ? There is not any continues memory block in such big memory space ?
Maybe 64-bit XXHighEnd would be a big step up in this case, you omit 32-bit limit...

Thank you

Roy and Marcin,

the case alone with 12 inch touch LCD without power supply costs about 1k Euro. Please add
- fanless power supply / no fans (and find one that is good for the sound)
- Win7 ultimate
- ultra low power 4-core processor + passive heatsink / no fans
- 16GB ram
- 2TB low power HDD
- 64 fast SSD
- professional sound card (Lynx or RME) that has clock i/o and digital output only for the best sound
- wireless keyboard with touch pad
- IR remote control
- Wifi

No way to get the above hardware / system for less than 4k Euro when you buy parts only. Where is cost of assembly, set-up, configuration, and finally software licenses for ripping and playback ?

The final produict price is not a sum of components price. It is always more, sometimes 10x more, especialy in high-end business.

I assume, you can make 2k Euro computer, but this is not the same computer as above. Of that I am sure.

Marcin,

it is a polish habit : laughing at somebody's work. You my think whatever you wish to think - this is true. But writing negative words, publishing a picture in a public forum about somebodys work - that is different. If you are sure you may do better, why do not you do better ? And much cheapper than 6k Euro, of course.
