Does AutoHotkey sound familiar to you ? I mean, do you use it for something else ?

Thanks for your help.

I have re-downloaded version 1.186a and all remains the same.
When launched, icon of xxHE can saw in task bar and a miniature of xxHE window emerging when mouse is over xxHE task-bar icon.

I am unable to maximize xxHE window, it stay minimized all the time.

You are completely correct. But this is the effect of adding bass. Do notice though that both this and the BNC cable add to this, while the BNC cable inherently improves on the balance. Still it is my own idea - after listening to the combination of the both for 5 days now, that I (right now) will revert to the original setting (and the BNC cable) to see what happens with that.

So my general remark too, is that things get too soft from it (not because of "deep down earth bass" now) and that for some types of music it clearly sounds overdone.

With all this, try to keep in mind that if I myself would have been in lack of bass or anything, I would have changed things springing from my own ideas about it. All I do though is try to satisfy the (very soft), say, complaints about too few bass or whatever the lack is exactly.
Before listening to the original setting I tend to agree that it will be somewhere in the middle now, because the "more bass" surely has something.

Anyway, no real disagreement !

First thoughts...

I really like the overall LF/MF/HF balance. A much smoother sound and easier to listen to. BUT...

... The transients seem lost - almost too smooth. Everything seems rounded. Reminds me a bit of the typical 'DSD sound' - very pleasant to listen to, but not 'real' sounding.

So overall, I'd like a mix of this and the original filter. If I had to choose between the two right now, it'd be a hard decision, but I'd probably go for the original filter because it draws me into the music more (even though it's harder on the ears).

Might moving the horn 40mm in or out help to 'sharpen' the sound? I'll give it a go later...

Yes, that's very confusing for say very well respected cable factory. Their PDF is, say, ridiculous.
For Mouser, Digikey & Pacific Cable ones I'v checked by filtering (50 Ohm) Pacific Cable has same connector with *-75*
added at end of product name. Did not post direct link to mfr site 'cause my browser is blocking Java App for this product.
Riddle still remains on 'boutique' and most expensive one. BNC connectors of 75 Ohm impedance are larger in diameter
and that's the only difference between them, AFAIK.

George, thanks for the list.
As mani mentioned the Ohelbach looks very interesting, but there is no mention about the impedance?

Does it matter if the adapter is rated at 50 or 75 ohms? Joachim, in his reply #2, said he used 50 ohm adapters, so I ordered 50 ohm too. Looking at Nik.d's list above I couldn't tell if they were 50 or 75 ohm.

I think I've blown the DSP unit.

No, not a blown DSP unit at all... just inconsistent DSP software by the look of things. Anyway, the filter changes in Peter's original post are now all applied. I'll write a more detailed post about my feelings on the SQ after I've had a prolonged listen, but early thoughts are very positive.


PS. Massive thank you to Peter for taking up his Sunday morning to help me out via email.
