Hello Zheng - Happy New Year indeed !

I solved this a few days ago. All you now have to do is wait for the new version. Wink

Btw, I think it is not commonly known by others which recognize the issue as "the last track in the playlist", that this happens at a "Format Change". So in the middle of the playlist it can happen just the same, if only a next track is of another Sampling Rate than the current one. The current one now will cut (and for how much depends on the SFS).

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,
Long time no see! I have always noticed that if I put a single track in playlist in unattended mode. It does not play to the very end and stops at a few seconds before the end of song. I am using 2.10c. This issue might have been covered somewhere but I just can't find it.
Happy New Year!
Zheng

Anybody prefer not to use upsampling? (the question aimed more at DS DAC users)

I have trouble deciding which I prefer, upsampling is revealing, clinical (in a good way) but.... unnatural? dead? basic terms to describe complex sound is a bit pointless....
there is catch to this, lower sampling rates means different,lower buffer and SFS settings are possible so its hard to fairly compare when there are possible variables to the ''best'' settings depending on rate.
With Kernel streaming it only applies to buffer as lowest possible SFS works no matter what rate (so not a huge deal) but with WASAPI it is limited..
This is something that makes WASAPI special, and makes in my case special sound possible.
with no upsampling 1.51 SFS is possible versus 12.26 with 8X, with KS the choice of SFS resulted in different sound rather than better or worse but with WASAPI I notice distinctive improvement to timbre with the lower SFS, there is also typical SFS differences, I think the higher SFS have more space and open sound, lower more dense presentation.
This could all be imagination though  scratching

Maybe this does not 100% cover what you are saying, although it could when thinking of the "too technical" you refer to. Along with it, I have the idea it is more pleasant to listen to, while I not readily noticed downsides. Maybe a tad less spoken bass ?


The bass is less "punchy" and "less clean/dry" with the [low] setting but the overall sound is more real and more pleasant to me. Arc Prediction is making me lower the volume because it gives an "annoying" pressure on my ears (playing loud trying to fill the missing something I guess...).

Need more listening sessions though (flipping phase makes a big difference but not equally for all settings).

If you try another setting than also try to invert or revert the phase with that setting... its result is not always better for all settings.

I changed my Custom filter settings to [low] which brings back body and character to the music. At high or Arc Prediction the sound is too "technical"... at least here on my system.

Bert, Yes, you can very well be right. I already forgot about your description but had in mind the advised Custom Filter-Low setting and yesterday from the first second it all came to me as more musical. Maybe this does not 100% cover what you are saying, although it could when thinking of the "too technical" you refer to. Along with it, I have the idea it is more pleasant to listen to, while I not readily noticed downsides. Maybe a tad less spoken bass ?

Thanks !

Hey Peter,

I almost asked in the last post if it were possible for different values of q1 and xq1, that make the same product for example 150, to sound different.

I have just spent some time a: b ing q1 X xq1 values that give a product of 150.

I still think I can hear some slight differences BUT its more difficult to pick out than I had thought origionally.

Perhaps I have a case of placebo going on  Happy

Either way sound quality is really sublime, your settings are great  Happy

Kind regards,

Nick.

Changing q1 to 10 and xq1 to 15

Hi Nick - I am sorry, but both end up at the result of 150, and I am not aware of any possible SQ influence by means of the individual settings of each.
This is for Kernel Streaming. For WASAPI the story is different ...

Best regards,
Peter

Hi,

I have been playing with Peters new settings:

Q1 = 30
xQ1 = 5
SFS = 0.69
Q3,4,5 = 1,1,1
Core Appointment = 3-5
Nervous Rate = 10
Wallpaper On, no OSD feautures

Sound is pretty superb, but felt voices were lacking just a little prominence and dynamic, as a result emotion was not quite as strong as it can be.

Changing q1 to 10 and xq1 to 15 has really bought back the emotion and presence. Everything else remains very enjoyable. Mybe bass pitch resolution is a shade more smeared but overall these setting are nice. Might be worth a try.

Nick.

Hi Bert,

I am using custom filter high since some time. Low is nice too. However I still need to invert phase otherwise something is amiss in the music.

Best regards,

Arvind
