It sounds like a tine scratch.

I said that while I confused it with another situation, as I just heard the "skipping" passing by. Just a very brief moment of silence (1-2 tenth of a second); I think it is that what you mean.

I only have 16GB in 'Le Monster'. Occasionally I get a 'Free Memory' error after pressing Play in XX. This can happen in Attended as well as Unattended. Pressing 'Continue' seems to work and the music starts fine. However... there are very faint hiccups during playback.

Hi Mani,

I think I can recognise this, especially at track boundaries. It seems that this belongs to 14393.0 exclusively, but not 100% sure. It sounds like a tine scratch.
At this moment I don't know what to do about it.

The "Free memory" I do not recognise, but then I have 32GB. What exactly/literally is that message ?

Thanks,
Peter

Hi Peter,

Finally got some time and fixed the settings in the 14393. And yes this OS is really great. The 10586 is very detailed but to my ears it lacked the last ounce of musical feeling and this 14393 just gives me that feeling and the sound is really very enjoyable now. Listen to that deep bass sounding nicely and naturally. The strings just seems to play right in front of you. This is really great. Can't imagine what improvement there could be with the Stealth Mach II PC ???!!! Thanks.

Leung

Hi Peter,

Pls amend my order to 35vIx3. Pls send me revised proforma invoice.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Peter,

I would like to change my order to 35v3. If I'm not wrong this means that the main input ( NOS1a in my case) is not connected to an input selector & consequently neither the volume control.

Best regards,

Arvind

I was wondering ... Does the procedure work in the first place ?

Well, I got caught out with the 'MyW10-14393-copy.vhd' name - I couldn't then add a new line to the boot menu. But as soon as I changed this to 'MyW10-14393.vhd', everything went fine.

But I have an issue now. I only have 16GB in 'Le Monster'. Occasionally I get a 'Free Memory' error after pressing Play in XX. This can happen in Attended as well as Unattended. Pressing 'Continue' seems to work and the music starts fine. However... there are very faint hiccups during playback. I tried increasing the SFS from 0.12 to 1.00, and I think this helps, but then I think the sound suffers a little. Would be nice to solve this without having to resort to adding more RAM memory to the PC.

Overall, 14393 seems way more lively and interesting than 10586. It's even listenable with the Intona removed, as I believe Robert reported a while ago. I'll have to do more listening before I decide whether I prefer the sound with/without the Intona.

Mani.

In any event, I'm not sure if OB speakers can be treated in the same way as IBs, ported, etc.

Mani.

Where the wavelength is longer than any room dimension, the room is the instrument, not so much the speaker.  IB has to obey the same rules of physics as any other topology.  My horn stacks when they are finished will be about 500kg each...I still plan to move them around to find where they best 'play the room'.

As you are no doubt aware Mani, good low end is mostly about positioning...

... It takes a lot of effort to get right.

Yeah, sure Anthony. In the old days, I used to spend hours/days with 'golden ratios', etc. My Orelos, with their currently sand-filled wings, weigh in at about 150kg each. Also, they're quite big in comparison to my [approx.] 6x5x4m room. So by necessity, they have remained sitting relatively close to the corners of the room since I received them.

In any event, I'm not sure if OB speakers can be treated in the same way as IBs, ported, etc.

No matter what I try, I can't seem to get the low end right in my room with the Orelos.

Mani.

As you are no doubt aware Mani, good low end is mostly about positioning.  Positioning of the speakers and positioning of the listening chair...both should be positioned with consideration of measured SPL for frequencies below the rooms Schroeder Frequency, usually somewhere near 250Hz.  Walking around with an RTA finding the room nulls and peaks for various frequencies is probably the best place to start...shift the speaker...get out the RTA...and iterate.  Once the speakers and chair are placed for best bass response then fine-tune the positioning to get the sound and imaging you want in the higher frequencies.

It takes a lot of effort to get right.  Have you read Jim Smiths book?  That is a good place to start.
