Hi Juan,

I thought I had read something about it but I'm sure I've mistakenly mixed some concepts like galvanic isolation of the USB cable and removing the ground from the NOS1.

Maybe not, but it is a bit different (from my understanding of what you thought) :

With the black wire: connected (Sw#3 down) the Galvanic Isolation in the i2s section is violated "halfly". Notice that I now mention "i2s" because that's where it is and always has been, while today we also have "USB Interface" galvanic isolation by means of the Phisolator. And I don't think I ever even thought of any "black wire" impact regarding this. It should be Up for the best isolation anyway.
In the past the i2s isolation has sure been mentioned by me in relation with the black wire (but thus was just called "Galvanic Isolation").

Does this help a little ?

Best regards,
Peter

Hmm...

I have to say that I really like the sound of the few MQA albums I've tried so far.

I have an MQA and non-MQA version of an album that I'm sure is from the same master. With MQA decoding switched off in XX, the two versions of the album sound very different. The non-MQA version sounds softer and fuller. The MQA version sounds a bit on the thin side in comparison, but 'cleaner' with it. My preference is the MQA version with the MQA decoder in XX switched on.

This was not what I was expecting at all!

Mani.

I changed the SFS again to 0.90 and the driver to 8ms and yes, it disappears what seemed to me a slight intrusion of the bass in the mids area. I have to keep listening but for now the sound is beautiful.

Regards,
Juan

Your decoding just does not work and it *has* to work already on the PC where you Prepare things, or otherwise nothing works.
I don't see you responding to my 2.09 remark, so I take it that you don't use that on the "Tidal" PC. Haha.

I upgraded to 2.09 on the music server ('Tidal' PC) before trying anything.

I deleted and re-prepared the MQA albums. Everything works fine. Thanks.

Mani.

Hi again Mani,

I get the error shown below when preparing streams.

Well, that nicely testifies of what I was saying.

I don't think anything works fine because any "96" album should show 96 for base rate and not 48.

Notice that it is best for you (at this moment) would be that you always retry all from the start. So throw out that Robert Plant, Search for it again - and that is sufficient to prove that it works or not, because as said, that 96 icon should appear in the Library Area('s Coverart) already.

I selected another DAC in my music server, and everything seems to be working OK now.

Thanks.

Mani.

The issue is identical on my Phasure audio PC too...

I think I've found the issue:

It seems to be a base rate problem (44.1 vs 48). MQA 44.1 rates work fine (see below), however 48 rates don't. The issue seems to stem from my music server. I get the error shown below when preparing streams.

Mani.

Hi Mani,

I'm afraid you have a decoding issue. See below for how it is supposed to look and mind the "96" icon in the bottom right corner. If you see nothing of this anywhere in your Library Area then on that PC the decoding does not work.
Btw, I take it that you use 2.09 for this (the Tidal-approaching PC !) ? because that *is* required ...

Regards,
Peter
