fredhammersmith2 posted a topic in SoftwareHi to all. I recently switched computers, in my big office/listening room/bedroom. I have now a powerhouse, a Dell Precision 690 server. I gained a lot of multitasking power by the switch, but the trade was a much noisier computer. What I'd like to try is install a stripped down Windows 7 OS in dual-boot (with my current W7 Ultimate config), just for the listening sessions. Just the OS, JRiver, my music hard drive, my two monitors, SpeedFan for fan control, a couple of USB ports. The main goal is obviously to minimize any interference. Any advice on how to achieve this? Can I install two W7 OS side-by-side? Is there a Win7 stripped-down version somewhere? The rest of my system is: AUDIO GD DIGITAL INTERFACE (to convert from USB to SPDif, and for re-clocking purposes) METRIC HALO ULN-2 NEUMANN KH 120 MONITORS (can someone with administrative powers edit the horrible mistake i made in the title please??)
Supreme Dalek posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionHope this is the right place to post this - if not feel free to move it. Its about the AMR DP 777 DAC as much as the Audiogd device. Hi guys and gals I have been reading a fair amount - in a short space of time - and one thing quite a few people seem to feel is that a coax output sounds better than a usb one - I certainly hold to that re red book transports connected to red book DACS - so in order to explore that I bought a S/H Audigd digital interface to explore that possibility. In doing so I may well have stepped into my first incompatibility issue - so I ask the question do I in fact have that or have I perhaps missed something in the set up - which is possible. Here is the set up to provide more info I am using either an Acer 1810TZ Notebook or Sony VPCEB4E4E laptops + external HD. The DAC is an AMR DP777. The media engine was Winamp - not bought J River yet though I intend to. Both laptops display the same problem in that there is no sound from the DAC using the Audiogd and a coax cable. The device is set correctly in the laptop - as far as I know - but Winamp refuses to play any music while the Audiogd is selected. If I switch to the usb - ASIO driver for the AMR DP777 there is music. Or if I select the spdif optical out on the Acer that produces music. I have tried the Audiogd as a coax improver and music played - I used a Marantz CD player as the transport so the Audiogd is working at least in this role. I am stumped as to why this isn't working. No doubt its something simple but if so I can't see it. To anyone replying please consider me somewhat ignorant and give me the idiots guide and a step by step solution/check list and simply is probably best than being more advanced. Thank you in advance.
