Hi Peter,

I selected the file D:\MyW10-14393.vhd from the drop down menu (pls look at my first image). Named it & added it to the boot into menu.

Best regards,

See below and name it literally as you see (the blue line).
(I am pretty sure you did not do it like that)

I had a chance to listen to 14393.0 for a while this evening, using the settings that Peter mentions a few posts earlier.  By the way I do not know where to set the driver buffer to 16ms, so I'm not sure what that setting is.

I've been comparing with 10586 listening mostly to acoustic instruments: piano, guitars, acoustic bass, drums.  I find that I can make better comparisons listening critically at the "sweet spot" (very wide with my speakers), AND listening casually while doing other things--the second method seems to me just as important.

14393.0 is the best version yet! I cannot believe it.  Just when I'm convinced that we've reached the ultimate, Peter continues to evolve the sound towards perfection.  If there is any criticism I have at all, it is a slight lack of "air" relative to 10586.  But I also wonder if the "air" is an artifact, and not real.

Absolutely wonderful sound.

Hi Ramesh,

Thank you.

That's exactly what I did but there are a few issues:
1) in the boot into menu against 14393 BASE the "repair file" does not show up. Even if I select the file from the drop down menu->apply->refresh, it becomes blank after refresh.
2) Currently my OS is 10586.0 RAM, if I now select any other OS-> apply-> reboot it only tries to boot into 14393.0 RAM. It shows error & then I have to manually select the OS to boot into. And it only boots into 10586.0 RAM, no other OS.

Best regards,

I thought I'd make it very explicit, so here goes again:

- Extract the .rar file in some temporary location
- Rename the file by removing the -Copy
- Copy the file to the D: root directory
- Bring up the Boot Into.. option on XXHE
- Select the New button in the popup, and select the 14393 .vhd file to add as a new OS, and give it a name; select both BASE and RAM

You should be set to go.

Just rename the .vhd file without the -Copy.

You do not need to install two files, just one .vhd file in the root D: directory.

You will need to reconfigure network settings and RDC if you are using a LAN connected music server.

You will also have to reset the various Q and other parameters, as this is a brand new OS and does not copy over any settings from other OS versions you may have used.

Hi Peter,

But there is only one OS version after unzipping; Copy.vhd. Unlike other OS have .vhd version & Copy.vhd version.

Image attached.

Sorry for the large image size but no way to make the size smaller on the iPhone.

Best regards,

Hi Arvind,

That name with the "Copy" in it, concerns the upload by me with the wrong name; it should be renamed to
I think the message to do this came along with the email containing the link, but anyway it is my bad.

If you still have problems with it, don't hesitate ...


PS: You can keep the "Copy" version somewhere else as a backup, hence you don't need to keep that on the SSD (taking space). And of course you can download it again when needed.

Hi Peter,

I am attempting to add 14393.0 to the RAM OS disk using method 2. The file has been unzipped to drive D. But I am only finding the Copy version in the drop down menu.

I have attached an image of the Boot into.

I think I should have the OS other than the Copy version.

Am I doing something wrong?

Best regards,

Hi Arjan,

Yes, I can imagine that you got some lows from your system. But I listened to it too, and it is really an "interesting" test album. Say for how things should not be done.

Anyway, with Bieber now behind us you can just as well advice this album to your kids.
Am I right ?
IOW in my view Beck is heading for the wrong direction with this. But maybe he sees new audience.
And loses the old with it.

More to the point, it looks like some mixing engineer had the idea to make the bass twice as loud as the rest, and added some compression on the fly.
Over here, with possibly some more bass power in the system, it is quite unlistenable. And strange.

I will listen to it better, later.
Thanks !
