    Miska, any thoughts as to why arglebargle's CPU usage went up with CUDA enabled? Is this what you'd expect or something odd/one off? Thanks

    Hi Ted I thought there was a consensus that i7 6700K alone was enough for DSD512? If you uncheck CUDA offload are you still good to go at DSD512?...

    Try this for a drum test track (24bit 96KHz) - best I've come across "#8 Drumkit Quartet No. 54" Not so much a fan of the rest of the album though.

    I believe so, several folk have posted success. Only limitation is PCM 48K to DSD512 i.e. PCM to 'wrong' family DSD, which requires an elephant ;)
