I am pragmatic about these format matters. I have about 3000 CDs ripped to hard disk. It’s my main music source. Hi-rez is only a supplement, with perhaps 30 titles sounding outstanding. (But the number is increasing). So my CD ratio is 100:1.

What counts in the end is the sound quality, whatever format. Phasure has taken 16/44 playback to such a high level, it is almost unbelievable. If the marked knew its performance, the NOS1 DAC would sell in thousands.

I am eagerly waiting your new discoveries. (Every night when I go to bed, I fantasize about “those cymbals brought more forward, without sounding too brash or harsh” which you announced for the next XXHE version).

Hardware: Dedicated PC disconnected from Internet, QuadCore 3.07GHz with OS and XX on SSD and music on SATA HDs > MoB USB3 (Hasta la vista Silverstone!) > Clairixa > NOS1 > active preamp > 3-way active XO > amps > ribbon/dynamic true line source speakers.

Software: W10Pro 10586.0 / XX 2.03a / Unattended / MinOS / Q1-5 = 14/-/1/1/1 / Copy to XX-drive / Adaptive mode / Dev.Buffer = 4096 / ClockRes = 1ms / Memory = Straight Contiguous / Include Garbage Collect / SFS = 0.2 (max 60) / not Invert / Phase Alignment Off / Playerprio = Low / ThreadPrio = Realtime.
