    AudiophileOptimizer BETA Thread

    Thanks for the reply Phil. As you are aware, I have limited computer audio skills and knowledge and found that getting JPLAY Femto to work was a real challenge for me. Marcin at JPLAY helped me out a lot to get me up and running. Installing WS in Core is something that I am yet to take on. I think that for the time being, I still stay with what I have. The sound with JPLAY Femto is really good and offers a very significant improvement over JPLAY 6.2

    Hi Phil I am running a dual PC setup with JPLAY Femto/BubbleUPnP on my Control PC and JPLAY Femto (Femtoserver disabled) on my Audio PC. I have AO on both machines, Fidelizer Pro on both machines and Process Lasso on the Audio PC only. I run my Control PC with Fidelizer Pro as the shell rather than GUI. The only other software on my Audio PC is the driver for my M2Tech HiFace Evo. I have the full WS2016 GUI on my Audio PC. Can I run my Audio PC with a different shell and if so, which one should I chose? Would this offer a worthwhile improvement in sound quality? Thanks

    JPLAY FEMTO is fantastic

    Agreed! I can now select multiple external USB drives. Thanks

    Credit where credit is due. I have to put my hand up and report that I was critical of JPLAYfemto on launch day. While several users have experienced challenges to get this new software to work, it is much to Marcin's credit that he very quickly establish a dedicated issues/bugs thread on the JPLAY Forum and is working extremely hard to ensure that any issues/bugs posted by users receive a very prompt response. Well done Marcin. It is greatly appreciated.

    Sorry Joel. I have to respond to this. Joel appears to be one of the JPLAY Femto users who has managed to get this to work. Go look at the JPLAY Forum. He appears to be in the minority. I can't get it to work in dual PC configuration, I can't assign the drives that contain my music files, I've had problems getting a control point to work with it and when I did I couldn't see any covert art. If people want to try it, then please be my guest but I would advise that you don't buy it until you are sure that it will work in your setup. Sorry to have to post this. It may be the case that I have wasted 49 Euros today. I have asked JPLAY for a refund. I will post if I get it

    Thanks for the reply Phil. I'll look forward to a public beta of a WS2019 compatible version of AO. Wouldn't want to run my dual PC setup without AO. Great piece of software!

    Hi Phil. I see that Windows Server 2019 is released and I have read reports that it sounds really good. I have also read that JPLAY 6.2, Minimserver and BubbleUPnP server also work well. I've read that AO does not work on WS2019. Can you please share your experience to date of WS2019 and let us know when a compatible beta might be released?

  10. It is always a privilege to listen to Argerich play 'Gaspard'. Gone perhaps, is the sheer power of her earlier recordings of the work although she remains a peerless interpreter of this work. Unlike you tdimler, I really enjoyed the remainder of the programme. It introduced me to several new works with which I was not previously familiar. The 24/44 version has a DR of 14 and the recordings sounds really good. Pretty essential I would say ... but isn't anything that features the stellar musicianship of Martha Argerich?

    what is better than Jriver

    It is hard to believe that there are still people who believe that all bit perfect players sound identical. They don't! There is always some variance in tonality. I was a JRMC user until they stopped me from using JPLAY with it. JMRC has a great interface and is user friendly although I believe that there are players that sound better. You might try Bug Head. It's a PITA to use and the interface is hradly designeds for user convenience but it sounds great. Congratulations Jim Hillegas at JRiver. You seem to have succeeded in convincing people that bit perfect players sound identical. I have nothing against JRMC and would probably still be using it if it would work with JPLAY. If it suits your needs and sounds good in your system then please enjoy using it.

    All Along the Watchtower

    I'll stick to Dylan's original version on 'John Wesley Harding' and the cover by The Jimi Hendrix Experience on 'Electric Ladyland'. I've liked some albums by DMB and they are fine players but this is 'Dad Rock' at its worst.
  13. Although one would hope that the good folk of this community would not attempt to use a license key inadvertently published in a post and subsequent reply, it would probably be a good idea to invite the mods here to remove the detail contained in recent submissions by billg and TubeMan. If that licence key is now out in the open, I doubt that it will work for much longer.

    Thanks for the reply Franatic. I tried the procedure that you suggested on my Audio PC and once again, got nothing. I'm happy with KS though. It's not a problem.

    Unfortunately I don't have a choice as try as I might, I can't get WASAPI to work. I have dual PC setup with JPLAY 6.2/AO 2.20b6/Fidelizer Pro 8 (Control PC and Audio PC)/M2Tech HiFace Evo/Minimserver/Linn Kinsky. I have played around with settings but cannot find one that will get the green light indicating that a stream is being received by the HiFace Evo. I selected WASAPI optimization in AO on both machines.I run Classic engine in JPLAY and have tried with Hibernate on and off. Please forgive my ignorance but do I need to install any others drivers or software to get WASAPI to work (This shouldn't be the case as Phil has assured me that it will work out of the box) and do I need to inject WASAPI (Whatever that might mean!) I am running WS2016 on both my Control PC and Audio PC in GUI mode. Do I need to run in Core to get WASPI to work? I will not attempt to install Core until Phil published the updated manual that includes setup instructions for Core. I find Phil's manual and the setup instructions contained therein to be a real positive strength of AO. As soon as that updated manual is published, I'll have a go with Core. My system runs fine in KS and sound really good. I only want to try WASAPI out of curiosity. If anyone has any ideas that will enable me to get it to run on my setup, I would be grateful.
