    Is there a way to fix this ?

    What I am afraid is about the passive cooling ability I defintely want something as powerful as rtx2080 and have a way to passive cool it using upsampling to dsd512 and PCM now has a weird channel inverted. Using pcm and the Left is left and right is right, where as Upsampling to DSD512 the right is now left and the left is now right ?, version 3.25.1

    Confused about DSD and DAC's

    PCM defintely sounds wonderful if you have a good system catering toward it. But I don’t think this is the op question

    I don’t know how to compose a log file for the 768KHz Upsampling problems. I also tried the gtx1030 for CUDA offload, which doesn’t really help much ...going to go with 1060 now and hoping for a better result

    I play back the 768K on Ibasso DX200 by the stock Mango player app. This app doesn’t play any sound when Upsampling via HQPlayer ?

    Both lks004 and Dx200 does playback 768K file though ? Very strange

    It display 705K on the Gustard interface, but DAC is unlock, like not getting anything. very true when I run out of power I get stuttering sound. The PC can handle many DSD512, so I think it is adequate

    It is the same as my Ibasso DX200. It wouldn’t have any sound doing 768K, but 386K is fine, and 768K Offline conversion is fine

    Why all hi-fi dealers say PC audio is bad?

    The MB USB interface is a Universal Series Bus interface output. That if you are playing music and split the Video into the monitor while the Audio is going out VIA USB, that is what the MB interface is doing....it is universal (charging, host/slave for Data) the DSP-Interface before the DAC is to take in that data and process it into I2S signals so that the DAC know what to do. Every DAC will need to have this interface in order to accept USB data, it is all built in (Amanero Module or Xmos Module), But builtin interface is taking power from the USB itself, and is using the general USB DSP chip such as Amanero or Xmos and code it for Audio. This DSP chip is as important as anything else...like DAC chip. Because recent market has a surge for High quality Audio devices, AKM and ESS as Giants are stepping into make Audio dedicated DSP chip, and the one found inside Gustard U16 is made by ESS company that made ES9038Pro Sabres DAC so, of course you will need whether a touch screen monitor or a mouse/keyboard/monitor just like any PC would
  10. I7-8700K can barely do XTR-2S into DSD512. Let alone any weak CPU. Non-2S XTR is defintely too much for I7-8700K

    Digital interface is to accept USB data and then process it into I2S language so that your DAC can understand. There are Amanero, Xmos devices and or a company own chip, but most common are the 2 mentioned

    I use LKS004, a cheap DAC from China but with the latest ESS9038Pro X 2 and properly designed with good components. But then, the digital interface will matter too, and I use Gustard U16 for that (which also has ESS DSP chip inside). I love my DSD512 by HQPlayer into this system

    My built PC is as follow Hd-Plex 400W LPS asus Z370 micro ATX I7-8700k 970Pro SSD 8gb ddr4 Passive cooling chassis in coming 1030 graphic card to offload some processing this Built is pretty affordable regarding motherboard, the better it perform in Over clocking, the better it precision on components and parts can be. If you are into hand modifying stuff, the. You can replace capacitors and so on, but I don’t care much about it. Whenever new MB comes out, I can just upgrade. RTX2080 and I9 May require liquid coolant of external power supply. If you can pull that off, my hat is off to you, which is much more bulky and expensive. It will be a project for when I need to convert on the fly DSD1024 and so on LoL

    I agree, I only used it as a point of references to counter the quote “PC sound bad”. i also agree that dedicatedly Built PC can be built for much less, which I did, and loving it. HQPlayer is a must

    There will never be the correct answers whether something is up to pars my friend. In this hobby, you need to judge with your ears. So, the only things for sure is to audition it in your system and observe for yourself. but on another hand, the game will never end, one day you will be itching for new speakers and so on, and it continue my built PC can be used to edit 3D stuff and so on, eventhough it isn’t super fast, but it can. This is why I recommended a good dedicatedly Built PC, you get a platform that is so opened for whatever you want, and then can even enjoy high fidelity music together, rather than going to an expensive streamer. Remember, expensive streamer can only get as good as it software allow it to....hardware is the physical body and software is the soul
