Peter,

I should add that I began the 10586 install from within 10074. By which I mean that I booted the XXHE PC with 10074 (which was already installed), loaded the 10586 disc into the DVD drive, located it in the File Explorer, and clicked on "Setup.exe"

First, I also disconnected the PC from the Internet to prevent the possibility of automatic updates. On the opening installation screen, I bypassed the "check for updates" option. Before reconnecting, I opened XXHE and in the Play window, right clicked on the Stop button and checked "Stop Windows updates."

It is entirely possible that booting from the 10586 DVD will also preserve the existing apps, but I cannot verify that. For some unknown reason, my PC would not boot from the installation DVD, which is why I updated it from within the existing OS.

I understand from my friend Zheng that you now recommend Build 14393. Of course, every time you install a new build all of the W10 defaults and useless apps are re-installed, too, which means spending two hours to tweak the OS back to its basic form, without the add-ons and default settings.

Cheers,
Joseph

Don't be disappointed when it appeard you are in demo mode. Because of course you are now. Being activated not only allows Minimized OS but also the Processor Core Appointment, which could be crucial for you.

Oh, yes, what do I need to send you for activation? Can we do it offline?

And what is new for you, are the Q3,4,5 settings which when all set to 1, imply the best possible SQ (methinks), but this can only work in Minimized OS (normal OS is too slow for this) plus when low on processor core count it is a bit of a search which Core Appointment Setting does the job.

I'll experiment with everything in time. I have years to catch up Wink
I need to keep my usb mouse/keyboard working for the moment.
I'm still doing everything without lan cable attached. When it's the time to try RDC, i'll study how to connect to my lan only. I dont think will be easy, so I'm posponing it after critical listening in the old setup & usb3 first.

Hi all,

3 days ago I set back my SFS from 20.19 to 10.19. It took me a month or so but eventually I couldn't stand the, say, sharpness of 20.19. It just was too much of it.
Receiving complaints from the family now and then as well, in the end did it.

Regards,
Peter

Next thing is the usb3 card. Then I can start listening.

If you can't control the system anywhere any more (no mouse moving or anything) BUT the sound keeps on happily playing (until the end of the playlist Wink) you'll know you arrived at the wrong setting.
Haha. Chance that this happens is not big, but it does exist.

Regards,
Peter

... Because any GPU in the system (be it on a PCIe card or be it in the CPU) is killing SQ.

So all the guys with a self-respecting system have their video cards out these days (and control via RDC/RDP which does not use any GPU in the host (your Audio PC)).

W10 (re)installation, optimization went smooth, and also xxhe 2.09 (which required the cr*ppy .net 3.5).

Next thing is the usb3 card. Then I can start listening.

Thanks. I think I will, as I have found a 65W part for 55$.

I do remember that going from dual to quad core was a big improvement for normal usage/multitasking. I can only guess it will be the same for music playback.
The additional cache may help it too.

Yes sure. And the answer is No.
You can't guess why ...

Are you gonna tell me? Happy

Does xxhe uses threads or only cores matter?

Telstar - both and all over.
The more cores the better the sound will be.
For 50 euros I would give it a go as long as the real $ stays out somewhat.

Go for it ...

Hi Joseph,

Great stuff for me, just because I didn't know that.

Still it would be so that I'd never install an OS like that. Too many things are dragged along under the hood (not the best for audio).

My HDD's are countless. Almost more than CD's these days.
Haha.

Thanks !
Peter
