So, I finally got around to upgrading to 2.11. It's been a while since I've used XX, because I've been playing around with the DSP in Roon. But even so, I'm certain that 2.11 is a step up (again!) from 2.10. It sounds truly amazing.

So much so in fact that I don't have any withdrawal symptoms from having just returned the Taiko Extreme that I had on a week's loan. (You can read about that here: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/60458-taiko-extreme-my-experience/?tab=comments#comment-1081051).

Thanks so much Peter.

Mani,

Interesting to hear your impressions.  The Taiko Extreme is a seriously priced piece of kit.  Were you trialling to see if you could find something better than the Mach III or was your interest more in the Roon/DSP side of things?  I fear that if I want to do Roon that I will have to get a second (non-Phasure) dac which I am reluctant to do, but sometimes I want something that is just quick and easy with Tidal but still sounds good.

I don't even have the Mach III yet...am waiting for Peter to source the 20/40 core cpus (hurry up Peter!)

Were you trialling to see if you could find something better than the Mach III or was your interest more in the Roon/DSP side of things?

I wanted to know what the generally accepted current SOTA sounds like with Roon and HQPlayer. And yes, how this compares with the Mach III running XX... feeding the NOS1 in both cases.

I fear that if I want to do Roon that I will have to get a second (non-Phasure) dac which I am reluctant to do, but sometimes I want something that is just quick and easy with Tidal but still sounds good.

Roon, Tidal/Qobuz do work with the NOS1. Once all set up, it's "quick and easy". The only thing you'll miss is auto sample rate switching. No big deal really, because you can set Roon to convert to and output a constant SR. It sounds pretty good really. I captured the output of the NOS1 being fed by XX, Roon, HQPlayer and Roon->HQPlayer with my RME ADI-2... and Roon (using its internal filters) stacks up pretty well. (Happy to send you the files if you're interested in taking a listen.)

Edit: Once set up, it's easy to switch between Roon for more general listening and discovering music on Tidal, and XX for more serious listening. No need of a second DAC!

OT. How's your own Opus Magnum coming on?

No doubt about it 2.11 its the best.

I think the Taiko engineering wise is excellent that's mechanical, metals etc. You do have to pay lots for precision engineering, machining metals, linear power supplies etc to exacting extremes of tolerance. But in the end its the package versus the money to extract this. The Mach III's are also extremely good with 2.11. If we could put a Mach III in a Taiko case we are at the same price as the Taiko. I'm not in a position or probably never to hear a Taiko so its certainly worth putting your money into a Mach III. This is transforming sound wise. Robert

I still have my Stealth II here too, and the difference between the Stealth II and the Mach III is massive. The Mach III 'sparkles' in comparison.

I really enjoyed having the Extreme here for a week, but can't imagine using anything other than XX for serious listening.

But this was not all ...

I think that most people will use Q3,4,5 at 1,1,1. Well, a week ago I suddenly heard how that now could go. This too is difficult to explain, but I'd say that everybody who uses 1,1,1, will know why he does that. And I now heard that it was not "necessary" any more.
And THAT beat all ...

This most certainly works in my setup very noticeable. I never would have thought to try this one.

I notice you have also changed some XTweaks : Balanced Load = *68* / Nervous Rate = 10 / Cool when Idle = n.a / Provide Stable Power = *1* / Utilize Cores always = 1 / Time Performance Index = Optimal / Time Stability = Stable.

I've had the Stable power at "0" for some time did you intend to change this?

You are still using Custom filters as well? I'm still with Arc Predict.

Robert, good question !!
I changed that in my Sig yesterday, because, well, I found it in there at checking things (at 1 while my Sig said 0). Maybe that is not good at all ! But ... I suppose I am listening to that for "months" ? ... So I better let it be.

Arc Prediction with the Lush^3 is too much of it. Things are wildly "sharp" (which is good) but also tiring fairly quickly (not good). And with the Blaxius^2.5 that is even more "too much" (I tried Arc Prediction 2 days ago once again, because now Q3,4,5 at 0 but it did not last one track).

Peter

I have been in sort of DAC limbo for the last year and hadn't used XXHE  much, but just after trying out 2.11 with some ok gear and gotta say Im really impressed with it. I hadn't used it in so long I forgot how much of an improvement you can get from a player can make (well XXHE at least, not sure about others), It's nearly like changing a piece hardware.

Using KS, High SFS, long buffer and 8x arc predition and it sounds very good.

I am going to pair it with Andrea Mori's (from diyaudio) upcoming NOS R2R DAC, FIFO and clock when it's available.
At least Andrea's goal is to provide a FIFO that completely eliminates influence from the PC, so most of XXHEs ability will probably (but hopefully) will be wasted,
But I do still need a digital volume control and digital filtering, XXHE is still the best choice in this regard, so not completely wasted

I was wondering, are xtweaks active always when enabled or only when playing?
So for example they would influence the sound in other programs outside XXHE?

Good question ...

You'd have to assume that they change things when playing. This is already so with the processor speed and probably related (because of consistency) more.
Also, when you are not playing, it is the idea that the PC is "workable" for other tasks. This includes the manipulation within XXHighEnd itself too (like it is not really useful to load files per the slowest means possible).
