Over the last few days, I've started to experience (again) USB Stream and FIFO errors, and with it the occasional "tick" or "scratch."  This used to happen to me earlier whenever I turned on LED lights or dimmers.  I installed a dedicated circuit for the audio system, and the LED lights stopped bothering me.

Recent changes are Blaxius^2, and some rearrangement of cables to accommodate the fatter B^2.  Not related to SFS settings.  I've rebooted several times, disconnected and reconnected the Lush^2.  Still occurs, and now even with LED lights out.

Wondering if anyone has ideas to try.  Big distraction from fully listening to B^2, etc.

Hi Dave
Yes I am using with the RCA adapters from the original Blaxius cables. I think both of us did not really feel the original Blaxius made a noticeable difference in our systems. Well I am here to tell you that is not the case with the Blaxius ^2. I am not sure if you have the Lush ^2 as of yet but I am using them both together which I understand from Peter is very important.

My system sound has transformed so much with these that my guess is you will not recognize it from the last time you visited. I have addressed room resonance issues and will soon have dedicated tweeters installed.

The 3D experience Peter, then Ramesh and now me are speaking of is just unbelievable. My guess is after your next visit here you will be updating your connections. It must be getting boring to hear me say it again but it is the best my system has ever sounded. You heard it with the G3, then the Mach III. Now you hear it again with the Lush^2 and now the Blaxius ^. Trust me when I say the sound for sure is not boring.

Come up and hear the White Album. Bring extra underwear teasing

Fred, Are you using RCA adapters with the Blaxius?  If so, how much better would the Blaxius be without...

Yes I find some changes are easily heard others subtle. I havn't changed to Lush 2 yet kind of waiting for things to settle but now its moved to other cables. I do wonder if Nordost have already discovered what you have with these recent advances with screens. The more I think about it they can only do so much with materials. Mind you when you can afford a 24/7 design team its highly likely you discover things.

I really see the benefits of the Stealth III the source has always been critical in audio.

Xxhighend software still has hidden talents.

What's the max SFS set to with 10.19?

Robert, aoplogies. Somehow yesterday I was not able to interpret this easy question. I read it as "what is the relation with".
Now the answer :

I have been careless and after looking just now I found it was set to 140.19. This is because at first the SFS itself was at that. Better would be to activate the "Maximum the same as SFS". That is, assumed one wants to reserve as least memory as possible. But now you won't be able to test e.g. 20 after a while (memory eaten).

And hmm ... yesterday I changed my Nervous Rate from 10 to 3, did not find it to be a real difference, but now I see that it also requires an Apply (so it was atill active at 10). Maybe it was Black Friday ? Or the placebo just didn't work. Happy
I now clicked Apply. Next we can bet that tonight all sounds lousy and I can't find why. Maybe someone reminds me ...

Yep, I've gotta reboot my AudioPC every day or the sound gets flat...it's very noticeable.

Are you running the Max SFS 10.19 at 10.19 max?

I've tried this and there is a clarity/smoothness over 140.19.

Mine normally runs 24/7 for weeks and weeks until something coincidentally requires a reboot, but these days I'd say this is not allowed any more. In the third day you will hear it. Whether this implies a daily reboot I don't know yet, but it could be good behavior.

Yes this is something I discovered last week after leaving on 24/7 for a week. I thought gosh music has become dull or is it my ears. I rebooted and music came back to life. If one plays music everyday I think fresh reboot is required everyday but as you suggest no longer than 3 is ok. I don't bother removing HD that often anymore.

OMG the transformation is absolutely instantaneous from the very first note. If I did not know Peter there is no way I could imagine break-in making it better. I will play with settings but not for a while.

Blaxius ^2 Happy new year ! love this sounds good ! Nice  This is for real

What's the max SFS set to with 10.19?

Robert - What the Max SFS would do is reserve memory for the higher SFS settings; when you didn't make this reservation, the problem could be that by the time you'd need that higher SFS (like 140 again), the contigous memory has been eaten and it will require a reboot first.

From this follows that you can apply the Max SFS as a tweak. Notice though that I don't have the real experience on this (but since you ask ...);
The more memory you reserve, the less the OS will be capable of using it. This is because *you* are using it (albeit empty except for the small SFS amount you really use). This could force OS tasks not to run - and you don't want to run anything anyway (except for your audio).
It also would prevent the Garbage Collector to be active regulalrly because what wasn't used (because you use it permanently) doesn't need to be cleaned up either.

Contrary to the above, one could argue that you make it the OS more difficult by taking out memory it needs to use. So now more activity takes place.
Again, etc.
