    I like this idea... the GoldenSound DSP?

    I have tried it the manual way, with PGGB - takes a while, but you have a file to do A/B comparisons with. I tried it myself with a piece of music that I made myself, because I use streaming for everything else and I thought, I recorded it, I mixed it, if anyone can hear a difference, its me...

    Thanks, that is also very good to know! But yes, specific hqp settings when using it with the Wandla, which included using PCM, but I’ve deviated from his preferred filters because I found them a bit too detailed and … maybe sterile.

    I’m I use HQPlayer with the Wandla, but no DSD - PCM up to 768, and other settings according to GoldenSounds recommendations 😄 can look them up later

    If I have understood correctly, you can basically roll back to the other version if you really want to, but I don’t know if there is any chance of getting your money back - they could tie the software to your serial number or some other identifier and give you a trial period, but I really don’t...

    It looks like they have an analog, wired input and a digital, wireless input. So I’d assume the same thing you do, the question is, do you do anything that requires their internal DSP? Room correction is critical for me, so I’d certainly go the wireless route if the analog path would bypass that.

    So the Oors outputs are always both on, if you run speakers from it and connect headphones, you’ll have signal on both, and no separate volume adjustment.

    Recorded in mqa… if I ever produce anything again I will distribute a CD-R with a 7z file on it.

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    Why don't you simulate that right now and put a filter on the test files starting at, say, 18kHz and see if you can still hear any differences? would be interesting I think

    Just a random interjection, I have another audio interface on the desktop for my active speakers because the Ferrum stack is not directly connected to the main desktop PC, but yesterday I decided to test it. the bad first: - connected to the Oor in bypass, my speakers did not turn off after 1h...

    You can do a lot with players like VLC that also accept web addresses as input, and there you can set the delay to exactly +- 2.5 seconds

    Which rack is that, the hs400? I tried to find a good one for my stack and this must have not existed yet, so I made my own, but I like this better

    It’s not bitperfect then anymore? I thought it’s just using metadata to change gain settings, not lowering the literal volume

    Don’t be afraid 😁 I switched to Ubuntu when windows Vista was about to come out, so nothing was as stable as it is these days….

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    This absolutely helps, thanks! I’m assuming win10 or 11 as the OS, and that DSD512 in general is more taxing than, for example, PCM 1.5Mhz would be? I also saw that the 3080 has significant more CUDA cores than the 4070, which is what would help here, right?

    Hey folks, I am currently stumbling over many online discussions about which hardware to get to run HQPlayer at pretty high settings optimally. I am in a bit of an interesting situation right now in that I’m buying a “new” PC for the sole purpose of running HQplayer, Roon will run somewhere...

    I believe always upsampling to 384/352,8khz, filters are the handful that you can choose on the Wandla interface. But it would also be interesting to have an A/B comparison of the stock configuration, no HQPlayer, because that’s how they come out the box.

    Ferrum WANDLA GoldenSound Edition - Pre-Orders are Live!

    Yeah, let’s stay positive - the best DAC at its price point got a new version with more features at a higher price point, as is deserved. If nobody buys it, that’s solid feedback - if people go nuts and even existing users all upgrade, job well done. I’m curious.

    Oh holy crap, Wandla freezing does not mean it stops playing, it means full throttle?
