Two hopefully quick questions:

1) Is it best advised to reboot out of MinOS mode before I switch between 1.186x and 0.9z-9b?

2) Is it best advised to reboot out of MinOS mode before I switch between 1.186a and 1.186i ?

So I tried to revert back to 186.a last night and could not overcome repeated preset errors. Unfortunately, when I removed the 186.a XX.exe and engine3 files from my XX folder it had presets active. Moving them back into the XX folder all I get now are preset errors and going to a "previous preset " setting doesn't work. Do I have to reinstall 186.a from the beginning or is there a particular preset file I could delete to get my original 186.a files to work?

After a fresh reboot, I also tried to revert to 1.186a and am seeing the same "preset errors," over and over.  I seems like it never stops so I shut down and went to sleep.   I reverted by copying the "a" versions of xxHighEnd.exe  Engine3.exe and xx.ahk (maybe the last  one was not needed?) over the i versions to see if 186a solves a synchronization problem I'm seeing now at 352 and 384 after I hit alt-e or alt-s in unattended mode, followed by alt-p,  which almost always causes missed synchronization,  and also at random times after my initial playback session ends when I proceed with further playback.

Except in my case, I have no preset file that works with 186a because I never actually ran 186a.  I installed "a" and then I probably  immediately installed 186h to get to the custom filter, which was the reason for upgrading.   Possibly I played one track, or part of a track but I don't remember.

So for me, should I delete the entire 1.186a folder and start again with a new re-install of 1.186a?

Hey Kjell, well done on your design choice(s). The first thing my wife said was that yours look much better than mine. But I think she was referring to the whole look and feel of your room - very, very nice indeed.

I also went for a minimalist approach and originally had the PC and NOS1a in my basement. But right now they're both in my main room, as I test a few things out. I'm pretty confident that I'll be able to return the PC to the basement, but depending on my interconnect findings this week, I may have to keep the NOS1a in the main room. We'll see...

Mani.

Thank you mani,
Finish you chosed are very very nice imo.

Looking forward on your findings on the interconnects. VERY nice to have only the speakers in the living room. At least the PC out of sight   yes

All right Charlie. I will make "you" a 352.8/384 filter. For now I will do that as "speedy" as I did it with the 176.4/192 filter which means that it will use the same "technology" as the 705.6/768 filter and only optimized for the 352.8 frequency. Makes it comparable as well (sort of virtually).

Thank you again for your reporting.
Peter

Hi Peter

I've been quiet because I upgraded my DAC to 384,  meaning I was without music and the ability to further test these filters for about 10 days.

I've noticed that few responses have been given with respect to the experimental 705 filter.  I'm willing to try it but I need a version that runs at 384.   Which begs the question:  why not provide 384 versions of the two 705 filters?    Wink

(That was my way of asking for a preferred 384/352.)  Happy

I can say that 352 has changed things.   That is, taking redbook all the way to 352 using the 176 custom filter has now resulted in my preference for that filter over the new AI.  At 176 AI had much of what I needed and Custom 176 was a little short.  But at 352/384 custom 176 filter very seldom has that dry sound and can be very clean and not hinting at lacking any critical harmonics.

This means that your filtering strategy is working over here the higher up in frequency we go, finally (something I bet all NOS1 users already know).  Meaning,  perhaps less ringing is needed as we go up in F.   Certainly some is needed though, IMHO.

did you end up using the 10 meter xlr?

I haven't had much time to play around with things lately, but will be testing a few interconnects (various lengths and models) this week. Will let you know how I get on...
