Mike Gillespie posted a topic in Music ServersJust wondering, what has been the experience of others using Windows Server 2012 Optimizer. In early September I loaned my Zuma to one of the world's most famous amp designers (the current Stereophile has a super positive review of one of his amps) and he loved it so much with Windows 2012, Jplay/JRiver and the Audiophile Optimizer that he won't give it back (literally!). And he's stopped all other playback -- CD's, other servers (and he has a lot of them), etc. He did offer to buy it but after hearing how much he liked it, I refused and told him to build his own. I'm curious if others have had the same experience. I'm getting the Zuma back November 9 and am anxious to hear it for myself. One more note: I'd had the Zuma running with Window 8 and JRiver and it couldn't touch the quality of what I got playing a CD through my Wright tube-modded Oppo 95 so I stopped using it. The amp designer has the newer tube-modded Oppo 105 and he says the Zuma with Server 2012/JRiver-JPlay and the Optimizer is much better than what he finds on playing a CD with even his Oppo.
AudioPhil posted a topic in Highend-AudioPC (Sponsored)Hello Folks The beta of AudiophileOptimizer for Windows 10 is making progress. It's still a lot to do, still many things not perfectly or only partially working, but the results are still pretty good so far, both for functionality as well as for sound quality. The first phase of the beta is going to end now, so from now on not only "chosen" ones can test the beta, every existing AO customer who is interested in testing the new beta is warmly welcome to do so. So this is the beginning of phase 2, the partially public beta. Quality To help us improve the quality and performance of the AudiophileOptimizer during the beta phase, please only use a fresh installation of Windows 10. Do NOT use any foreign scripts or other audio enhancement tools/software, etc. because your results would be useless for us. Just Windows 10, the AudiophileOptimizer and the mediaplayer of your choice. Who is the beta for? Please let me outline for who the beta is and for who it probably isn't yet. Consider yourself a possible beta tester if you: - Have a valid AO 1.30/1.40 license in place - Are a very experienced user of the AudiophileOptimizer and very computer savvy as well - Are able to provide a clean and fresh installation of (any) Windows 10 version to test the beta - Don't mind if you need to format and reinstall your system (maybe even multiple times) - Do fully understand what a software in early beta stadium is - Have no problems reporting issues or features that do not yet work as expected - Are able to clearly focus your testing on the features that are mentioned in the change log - Are able to provide feedback about technical issues via email to email@example.com - Are able to read, understand and follow our instructions carefully If you don't feel comfortable with the points mentioned above then testing the beta is probably not for you. You should wait for the final release of AO 2.00. But if you think you are the right person, have fun in testing things, are able to provide us valuable feedback and be an active part of this second beta phase, please feel free to give us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know about your interest and especially why you are the right person for this part of the beta phase. Change Log of AO Version 2.00, beta 4 ============================================ AudiophileOptimizer 2.00 - Several adjustments for Windows 10 - Enables MinimServer in core mode (Server 2012 R2) - Improvements on Kernel-Streaming and MediaPlayer support (Server 2012 R2) - Possibility to disables Windows Defender (Windows 10) - Possibility to disable OneDrive (Windows 10) ServiceTool 2.00 - Several adjustments for Windows 10 - Shell replacement for JRiver Media Center 21 - Shell replacement for MinimServer - Possibility to strip down Windows 10 (remove all apps, optional features, etc.) Setup 2.00 - Several adjustments for Windows 10 ...so let the fun begin! :-) Enjoy, Phil
mourip posted a topic in Music ServersHi, I seem to have developed a new situation in my system whereby when I play DSD files I only get music for about 10 seconds and then it stops with JRMC showing "buffering" while slowly counting up to 100% again. This repeats, never letting the music really play for more than a few seconds. Background. I have a "CAPS" server running Windows 2012, JRMC and Audiophile Optimizer(AO). The caps server has a Paul Pang USB card powered by a +5v external supply. DAC is Wyred4Sound DAC2 DSD SE. JMRC uses the ASIO driver provided by W4S. I recently added a REGEN but the symptoms are there without it. Server runs in CORE mode. Settings in JRMC are as specified by the W4S PDF verified by calling them. I tried removing the REGEN and using a new USB cable but the symptoms are the same. I did have DSD playing fine for a long time and Red Book still plays perfectly and sounds wonderful. My hardware setup for the PC and DAC front end has really not changed. I have however recently upgraded JRMC to version 20 and AO to one of the last beta versions. My only guess is that one of the settings in AO has affected DSD playback. Since I was previously able to play DSD I assume that my CAPS server is up to the task. Before I start tearing down the system to it's frame I thought that I would ask for suggestions regarding a possible cause for the buffering. Thanks! Paul
