Hi Peter

From time to time you mention retiring AI upscaling.

I say, please don't get rid of AI.  Apparently, it is the best sounding "standard" algorithm of any I've heard right now. 

HQPlayer had always had a few really good ones, and have usually been better or at least good enough to avoid AI.  But lately your AI appears to be better than even HQPlayer's best.  At least, this appears to be true with the other changes you've made to 2.10.

AI is slow to load tracks but I manage it by using only 2X and I now have an SSD OS disk so it is acceptably fast for loading tracks in unattended mode.

Please consider keeping it and even improving it.

Thanks,

Charlie
