    AudiophileOptimizer BETA Thread

    Hello Folks Thank you very much for all the ideas! Sorry for my online absence. I had a minor surgery last week and am now back at home recovering, so far all good. I take note of every single one. Those which are technically possible and doable within reasonable time will be included in AO 3.00. Please keep the ideas coming! Very best, AudioPhil

    AO Licenses

    Hello Mourip With your purchase of the AudiophileOptimizer you get one personal, non-transferrable license. This license includes 5 activations. Those five activations must be used on machines which belong to you, but you may use all five at the same time if you like. If you followed the instructions from our PDF guide carefully, then your installation on the same maschine will always have the same Hardware-ID and therefore no requireq you to use another activation. You can use the same Activation-Key from the very first Hardware-ID for unlimited times. If you change hardware of your server, let's say the network card, the mainboard or the harddrive, a new Hardware-ID will be generated and you have to use another Activation to generate the needed Activation Key. If you need additional Activation-Keys you can simply go to our activation self-service portal and try to generate another activation, you will then be displayed a link in the bottom where you can order a pack of two new Activation-Keys. Hope this helps to clarify how it works. Very best, AudioPhil

    Hi Indeed I'm working on it every night. My brian works the best during the night so have the best ideas and be most productive then. The progress of AO 3.00 is very good, I am very happy so far. To everybod, now is an excellent time for wishes! What would be your most wanted feature for AO 3.00? Please let me know.
  4. AO will make this better, but it's not only AO, it's also the way you install the OS and what additional programs you install over time. Best is to have a dedicated partition where you install a separate OS and use that partition strictly for audio. On the other partition you install and do anything else you could need that machine for. The process for this is also described in our PDF manual, you can find it here: https://pdf.highend-audiopc.com/audiophile-optimizer-setup-guide.pdf
  5. Yes indeed good news There ar allready 21 iterations of AO 3.00, so far all is working great on all known platforms as well as on Server 2019. But WASAPI seems to be very tricky once more... So to everyone out there... Now is a great time to let us know about your wishes for AO 3.00! What would be the most wanted feature you'd like to see in AO 3.00? Please let me know!

    Yes, but where is the relation to AO? I can only say if AO will work well and it does that. I cannot do anything about those things microsoft screws up themselves on a regular basis But thanks a lot for pointing out to that issue, those who rely on network drives should rather wait with the upgrade!
  7. Hello Folks We had a few inquiries about this so i thought i let everyone know who is subcribed to this thread. One question we had a lot of times was regarding AO 2.20's compatibility in regard of the new Windows 10 1809 upgrade. We have thourougly tested AO 2.20 on Windows 10 1890 and everything works absolutely flawless. There are no issues to be expected because of the 1809 upgrade, so for those on Windows 10 please feel free and go ahead with the upgrade. There are also many questions about Windows Server 2019 and some even heard about a coming AO 3.00. Well yes this is true, AO 3.00 is in the works since quite a while and it performs wonderfully on Server 2019 both GUI and Core. The general release of AO is projected somewhere in Q2 2019, but the public beta phase is very likely to start in the beginning of 2019. We are working on a solution to make the AO 3.00 Beta available for all current AO 2.20 users after a phase 0 testing with a selected group of very good beta testers. Enjoy it, AudioPhil

    No, I would not recommend to do that. I see AO 3.00 final release somewhere in Q2 2019.

    Hello Pkoegz i'd highly recommend you to use Windows Server 2016 in GUI mode. Standard edition is perfectly fine, the more expensive versions will sound exactly the same. You might also considering using the trial/evaluation version, it is totally free and will run for at least 180 days. In our guide as well as the interwegs you will find how-to's on expanding those 180 days up to five times. That's quite a while of Windows Server for zero bucks

    Having the AudioPC in Core would be the best way. if you do not log in on the audiopc there is little difference to no shell replacement, so you should be fine with your current setup

    This rather depends on your GUI than jplay femto. If the GUI is the fully blown desktop you would have quite a nice benefit running anything else as shell than the desktop. and therefore jplay femto and any other player or streamer service will sound better. if the shell is the command prompt (because of core mode), then the gain in sound quality is significantly lower and its much more a convenience thing for autostarting something. But in GUI of course a shell replacement makes quite of a difference yes.
  13. RDP connection (can be somewhat of a nasty thing... the default setting of the RDP client is to play the remotely generated sound on the local machine, so actually redirection the sound backwards through the RCP connection to your local machine. That can be pretty much a reason for KS not showing up (or anything else..). So make always sure you disable the sound redirection in the RDP client so that your server can use its local sound interfaces

    Yes it does. What AO does for you you cannot enter there by hand, but if you change the option manually will overwrite the options AO offers you. You can do it, but I would not recommend doing so. But still, no harm will happen. If you don't like the result, simply run AO again and set Digital Filter and Sound Signature again, all good
