Hello XXHighEnd,

I'm evaluating XXHighEnd and first off, this software is remarkable. Very revealing!

I have noticed that I'm unable to playback 32 bit Wav files in either 192/384KHz format.
Are 32 bit Wav files supported, or do I have a settings issue?

The Wav Files in question were generated in Adobe Audition / Audacity / Sound Forge.
If I convert the 32 Bit Wav files to 16Bit/24Bit Format (192/384KHz) they playback correctly.
If it helps, I can upload an example Wave file?
 
System configuration:
Windows 10 64-bit (Intel i5 3.4GHz / 16 Gb Ram)
System Drive is an SSD, media drive 3Tb Sata.
Chord Hugo DAC connected via USB.
XXHighEnd Software installation performed from a clean reboot with Administrator rights enabled and Kaspersky Internet Security anti-virus software disabled.
The 32 Bit Wav files playback correctly within other software.

I really hope you can help.

Kind regards,
David.

Hi there David (and welcome !),

This is from ever back release notes of version 0.9z-8-2 :

It was found that actually by accident 32 bit integer (!) files can play through XXHighEnd if only no Upsampling is applied. However, 32 bit files can not be Attenuated (as of yet). Therefore an error message will now occur when a 32 bit file is attempted to play while the Digital Volume shows Attenuation (playback will not start) and it should prevent you getting out for new windows.

And this is from Release Notes of 1.186a :

Since one of the last versions 32 bit files did not play anymore. Now they should again, but *notice* this has not been tested.
To keep in mind : 32 bit files never were supported officially and they still are not. However, with the XXHighEnd Volume at -0dBFS they can play (otherwise an error message tells you).


I recall that the person I re-instated this for, was happy with it. So it should work, but under the condition that it is Integer (not Floating Point), you can not upsample it and Digital Attentuation (in XXHighEnd) is not allowed.
For the not upsampling, take care that the little horizontal slider in the left pane denoted "1x, 2x, 4x, 16x" is set to 1x.

Let me know if this helps you, OK ?

Kind regards,
Peter
