Maybe it's just me, but if my treble was a little hot I would search for the real problem rather than put a band aid on it by reconfiguring the Lush^3.
Maybe Damian can tell us more about his system. Maybe some members might have some other suggestions to try first.



Thanks for your kind offer of help. I have a great system using a Vitus  amplifier and magico  speakers. I致e started working on acoustical treatments for the room.

To be honestI find many audio systems to be too harsh when it comes to treble production in digital audio. I知 Particularly sensitive to any sibilance or bleaching Of the sound.

The good news is that I have found  the lush3 usb cable , to be a perfect fit. I am three days in and I know I have some time yet to go, but it certainly seems to be heading all the right notes!

It certainly appears to produce a beautiful full bodied
Sound and yet provide detail without distortion. I知 very curious whether adding an XLR 2 Cable will build upon what I have or be too much?

I値l update you in a day or so on  any further developments or observations  in the breaking in process.

Most importantly I知 enjoying the sound of the music immensely.

I'm glad Lush^3 is working for you. Huge changes in the first 50 hours. Continues to improve 200 hours and beyond.
Looking forward to your comments later on.

Hi Peter,

I will soon place an order for a Lush^3 cable. I have one question regarding the short USB cable that connects the output of the Phisolator (I input) to the rest of the DAC (U Input).
Did you try a Lush^3 or for that matter a Lush^2, instead of the stock short cable? In the USB chain I see that short cable as the possible weak link. What is your stand on this?

Thank you,


Michael

Hi Michael,

With each USB cable we have, we tried the exact same internally in the DAC (there too is a show piece of (real) USB cable). It exactly never worked out (sounds bad) ...
Why ? a mystery.

Maybe in two cases I heard of the short USB cable implying a problem. But this is merely a combination with the Phisolator than with the USB cable sec.
Of course you are free to try to replace the short piece with an other cable (try your upcoming Lush^3 for fun) - it won't be to long or anything.

If you have results at some stage, please don't hesitate to share it.

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,

Once I receive my Lush^3  I'll do some testing with the different cables I have on hand (Clarixa, Lush and Lush^2) and I'll report on my findings.

Hi Peter,

I just received my Lush^3. Thanks.

I want to clarify the jumper configuration. The cable I received is configured as follows:     A: W-Y-R  B: W-Y-R-G
This is different than the configuration in your signature and this is the opposite of the config. you posted on November 27th.

What is the current consensus on the best configuration?

Than you,

Michael

A:W-Y-R-G, B:W-Y-R should be the correct shipped.

As far as I'm aware this is still the reference.

There has been little input in general on different connections from people other than Peter. Even I'm still running this after 6 weeks. I'm still getting my head around a new Mach III which was a massive sound improvement and has somewhat over shadowed the Lush^3 for me.

Hi Robert,

So it seems that the cable I received has been configured the opposite way. I will make the change before I do my first audition tonight.

Thanks,

Hi all,

After having spent several hours with the Lush^3 I can only concur with everything that has been said so far on this cable. Over the years I've upgraded my USB cable several times (Stealth III to NOS1a), from Clairixa to Lush to Lush^2 and now the Lush^3. Every time I noticed an improvement. But the latest move, to the Lush^3, is the one that brought the most significant benefits to SQ. Each instrument is more distinct in space, it removed the last hint of glare that was remaining and everything is much more focused. The overall feeling is a sense of ease and the listening is now even more relaxed.

I also agree that now the Phase control has definitely an effect on the SQ. Before the Lush^3 I had tested the Phase parameter but every time I couldn't hear the slightest change. To my surprise now the Phase control has a very positive effect. It kind of adds to the Lush^3 qualities. It's specifically notable on the focus of the instruments. I'd say that with the Phase control 'on' 80% of the SQ gain comes from the Lush^3 and 20% from the Phase 'on'.

Thank you Peter for your relentless quest in the development of new tools devoted to music reproduction.

Michael

A:W-Y-R-G, B:W-Y
Difficult to describe because this happened because of a loose wire two actually. The B on the A side and the R on the B side. However, because I work with dipswitches since November 2020, I never noticed this.

This lifted from audiophilestyle.com, Lush ^3. New setting for Lush ^3.

Original best setting: A:W-Y-R-G, B:W-Y-R.

Quite easy to compare just remove red wire carefully from "B" side during playback.

This new accidental discovery is in fact better for sound I believe.

I found it lifted a glaze/veil from the sound. Violin, banjo and vocals from Leonard Cohen's, Amen, Old Ideas album 24/44 certainly improved. On initial listening I did find treble improved but bass reduced in output. 
Further to this I put Arc Prediction back on. Well I'm going to listen to more music over the next few days to see how filters go. But quite liking Arc Prediction again and new Lush settings.

Thank you Robert.

I refrained somewhat to mention this over here, because it relates to other XXHighEnd settings as well, and in combination with the Blaxius^2.5 (as I mentioned over there) it is already difficult enough. The fun could be :

While you could know about XXHighEnd settings and change them accordingly, I did not tell them and you did thus not apply them and THUS out of all context it is even better that you like the
A:W-Y-R-G, B:W-Y
better than the "original".

So I like to be quiet about the XXHighEnd settings (I have been playing with them for 2-3 months by know, thinking it was about the Blaxius^2.5 only (allowing for again better settings hence sound), and obviously eventually I will tell about them. But while we're at it anyway, I rather like people to tell about their findings out of this context. we all could learn from it, just like *I* learned from you that possibly now Arc Prediction is for the better. So I am gong to try right now !

The combinations never end, do they ?

Best regards,
Peter
