I haven't tried any 4k yet and I'm pretty much using the same thing. I'm surprised the 760 couldn't handle it, crazy!

Hmm.. Never tried 4K with my 770, might have to try it just to watch the rig whine at the load l

Kawaii Codec Pack? It piles madVR, LAV, and all that other stuff into one nice installer.

 

I haven't stuck my finger too far into this region yet. Would rather worry about other stuff for now.

My mind can't help but fall into the gutter reading this. XD

I will say that this is probably the very first DAP I've encountered outside of the F886 that I felt I could live with. All the other niche audiophile DAPs have frustrated me in many ways. I don't want to give up iOS responsiveness and ease of use/battery life when migrating to a dedicated player. It's that sort of thing that's lead to me practically always using the iPhone even though I have other far more expensive DAPs/DACs/amps/etc. in the house. I've always found the iPhone to sound "good enough" anyway. That aside, I think it's even more responsive than the F886 since the processor in the Sony is the woefully long in the tooth Tegra. I believe the dual Arm 9 processors in the P1 are equivalent to the Apple A5 that's found in the iPhone 4S, and since it's running Linux, and not some lame reskinned Android OS, that's far more than necessary. 

And yeah, if you could supply me with some free files that'd be appreciated. I don't have any hires music to speak of
Ah, that's some good news then. Although I found the DX90's firmware to be better than what I remember with the DX50, it was still clunky as heck to navigate around. It's good to hear that the Plenue 1 at least has a pretty decent UI. A good UI is something I value in a portable media player since it allows me to actually use the thing. XD

I was actually eying the F886 before the Geek Wave was made. It looks pretty sleek! I'd honestly get the Miku-blue/green one though; it's quite a unique colour. : D

I last read that the Geek Wave is going to use a custom audio kernel that isn't run on Android to optimise the sound quality or something along those lines.

As for the test tracks, I found two sets of DSD/24_96 files with the same length in my library. You can download one, or the other, or both. In each zip file, there is 1 DSD file and 1 24/96 WAV file. For the battery life test, you can probably just put one track on repeat; and do it again for the other file.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2816447/DSDvsPCM_Test_Tracks_2.zip (301 MB)

For the Test Tracks 2 folder, I converted an original FLAC file to a WAV file because the DSF DSD file format is like an AIFF file (uncompressed audio). I analysed the spectrograms of the converted file and it's exactly the same as the original (just confirming that lossless to lossless conversions are indeed lossless). XD confirmation spectrograms (Click to show)

^ original 24/96 FLAC file


^ converted 24/96 WAV file

The madvr settings is pretty affordable in most normal cases (play leopard-raws encoded 720p at ~5ms render time per frame iirc).

Those are some tricky 4k files purposely encoded to fry your system (60fps or higher, 4:4:4 color, etc), general ones should be ok.

That'll teach me to be a lazy f***. Never knew this existed.

Have it bookmarked, will have to read it in detail later

@deadlylover You've been to Tokyo right? Anything you recommend I do while I'm there?

I guess that's what $10k workstations are for... XD

Heh, I remember some test files that were sent out encoded at something like that.

Enjoy! MPC-HC has other perks like plugins for Hexchat too (if you IRC). Otherwise it's just a darn good player that lets you be lazy.

Mate if you'll be there for a year, I guess you'll be able to explore everything anyway. XD

 

I can't really recommend much other than to visit all the main towns.

 

Akihabara, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ikebukuro, Asakusa, Odaiba, things like that, my memory is failing me now. You're gonna have to ask the others for any specific headphone stores, but the Yodobashi camera in Shinjuku and Akihabara has quite a selection!

Sometimes people just happened to have too much computing power to spare :/
