I have to ask are you still using barebone Intona?


No Intona here ... haven't tried it for a while either.

Maybe this does not 100% cover what you are saying, although it could when thinking of the "too technical" you refer to. Along with it, I have the idea it is more pleasant to listen to, while I not readily noticed downsides. Maybe a tad less spoken bass ?


The bass is less "punchy" and "less clean/dry" with the [low] setting but the overall sound is more real and more pleasant to me. Arc Prediction is making me lower the volume because it gives an "annoying" pressure on my ears (playing loud trying to fill the missing something I guess...).

Need more listening sessions though (flipping phase makes a big difference but not equally for all settings).

If you try another setting than also try to invert or revert the phase with that setting... its result is not always better for all settings.

With these settings, I too find that the sound is not cohesive so I tried inverting phase & it brings the cohesiveness back.


Hey  Arvind,

I changed my Custom filter settings to [low] which brings back body and character to the music. At high or Arc Prediction the sound is too "technical"... at least here on my system.

Perhaps you'll like it more too?

Cheers,

Bert

Me too...

Liking the 0.69 settings a lot too except for that "out of phase" kind of annoying twist like something is missing.

Used Arc Prediction Filtering (16x) for some time now but since I switched to Custom Filtering (High 29510) things returned to normal without losing the advantages of that much tighter bass.

I did also have added more gain to the lower section than I could bare before resulting in more weight and with punch without getting boomy or blown out bass notes.

This means tweaking the crossover range again but I already really like the tonal balance I am hearing now.

Don't mind my signature... its old and outdated for a long time!

All is up and running now...

Updated the server as well!

But this did the trick, I can access the server from any PC now where this registry entry was applied.

  • Open a Command Prompt window as Administrator.

  • Run the following command to add a registry value:

    REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\CredSSP\Parameters\ /v AllowEncryptionOracle /t REG_DWORD /d 2

Bert

PS, now with extra ServerPC in the chain I might as well start with Tidal!

Next step is to figure out how to play music from that server ...

Done, so far so good... now I can remove the videocard from the AudioPC and play music from the ServerPC.

Anyway, cross fingers that it will help you ...

This works... the ServerPC is connected through RDP with the AudioPC.

Next step is to figure out how to play music from that server ...

... and optimally how to connect wirelessly through Wifi (and a tablet) to control the ServerPC in the end so that all is connected and optimally accesible.

Computers ...  grazy

Bert, yes I can find that for you.

Thanks! Hope it helps...

Try to take care of the updates (via XXHighEnd's - Stop-Rightclick button), or otherwise it will end up the same.

On the AudioPC this was done the moment XXHighend showed up on the screen...  but how to do this on the ServerPC? XXHighend should not be installed on there? Should it?

So... best change would be to use the same vesrion of Windows for the music server?

Lost mine though... do you still have the 10.0.14393 RAM-OS as ISO-file somewhere on line?

Then at least I can use the ServerPC to RDP the AudioPC (if that then works).

Bert
10  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: CredSSP policy change - no RDP possible on: August 08, 2018, 02:11:09 pm
Still no RDP possible....  unhappy

I have tried all suggestions... nothing works.

Not even the multiple user option (that works only when the AudioPC is in normal mode).

Even implemented a new PC to act as server in between my MainPC and the AudioPC. Newly installed Windows on it and the fartest I can get is to have access to the files on the AudioPC (cable connected to the ServerPC).

F*ck.

Does this mean you don't use XXhighend generally for listening or something else?

Haven't listened seriously at all ... other priorities.

Clear!  Wink

Thanks Juan...

Thanks Juan,

With Music Server you mean server for real or the PC you use to control de Audio PC?

I do not have a server in between the Audio PC and my Main PC. Perhaps I should one day but since my NAS always worked out OK then why change?

Bert

I am trying to solve the problem for 4 hours already but nothing seems to work out.

gpedit does not exist and when installed it does not give me the administration tab nor the deeper links to be able to change things as described.

I probably have to install an older W10 version on the tablet (before March 2018) and never update it again...

Not even the mobile phone app (Android) connects! :-(

Stupid stuff...

Hi Peter,

Haven't listened for 3 months (or even more) and thought "why not try those new settings with the high SFS (140.19 instead of 5.19).

Awfull... thought is was burning in all over again because the sound was plain flat (no ambiance, no dynamics), no focus (all over the place), grey, etc...

Turned it back to 5.19 again and guess what! Still not 100% to my liking but much better than the high SFS!

In other words, it does not work on my system at all (non Stealth or other upgrades besides the "B").

Too much to handle for my PC I guess?

Additonal Note:
RDC does not work anymore so playing now with video card inserted and monitor connected...

Bert
