When I was using JRiver 18, the buffer was 0.17 second for best results. With JRiver 19, however, it has to be 0.005 second  
to emulate the same sweetness in timbre. It's a difference of more than 30 times. I suspect something ought to have been  
heavily modified.

Don't know how to adjust the buffer latency. Buffer level now in force is 0.005 second which gives the best balance.  
 
Must seek your advice next time we meet!

講開 JRiver 順口 up多幾句 佢有個設定 mode: option---> audio device---> dafualt audio device (direct sound)  
---> device settings---> buffering playblack latency (dafualt 0.25 second)  
 
該 playblack latency 會直接影響 ASIO. WASAPI 成果 (舊 JRiver19 有 bug 不能隨意調節)要 update 新 version  
 
http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=90444.0  
 
 
sliding the buffering between 0.05sec-1sec 可用作 fine-tune CAS sonic performance, set 好後再返回你原先o既 ASIO mode,返覆試多幾次用耳朵收貨.  
 
用 JRiver 黎聽歌外睇 YouTube Video 都 very good .

點解一定要 delete 備份在 cover art folder 內 o既 cover icon files 呢 ??  
 
我有些體驗,在 JRiver center rip 一隻 Various artists name CD 會有多個 cover icon 同時出現或 Load CD album titles from Freedb 中文字會有亂碼 error. (國內 cd) 用 JRiver edit information 佢好鬼 stupid.  
 
只要用 mouse point to the concern icon right kick select delete choose remove from media library.(不需要 delete 已 stored cover art files)  
 
跟住再用 Tag&Rename software 開啟有關 ripped cd file, edit,後再用 JRiver import function ( import to library ). 幾麻煩 o既 cover icon and 亂碼 error problems 都搞掂. 有需要時還可以把 3個 audio files combine 用一個 icon display.  
 
我有 d cas 搞靚聲心得有機會再與您 9 up 分享.

It appears that all my cover arts go hand in hand with their respective music files either as PDF or Jpeg. Hence they don’t need to be stored in a separate place.

There are a couple of cover arts whose music files I have already deleted from the library. I wanted to have these pictures deleted many times but all in vain. There was no way I could locate these pictures.  
 
According to JRiver, there are 3 places where cover arts would be stored:  
 
1. In a specified folder  
2. In the album folder as cover art or the music file as "folder".  
3. In the tag  
 
If it is 2 or 3, the artwork should be deleted along with the music file. Regarding 1, the specified folder, I just cannot find it.  
 
Does anyone using JRiver have similar experience?

if that is what you want, it would be rather hopeless to use wav as a format.

the information of each file should be in their database instead. No?

Honestly I am not sure, but I would have thought it desirable to have tags stored within individual album. That would allow more intact file transfer to non-Jriver users.

you can have tags on wave file but hardly anyone support it. but since liamge you are using jriver, the information of each file should be in their database instead. No? i would have thought this makes the wave capability irrelevant.

當然可以,我整個 Audio data base 都係 wav format,我覺得 wav 肉地會多過 flac.  
 
我用緊叫 Tag&Rename software 玩 CAS Rip Audio/Video CD 友有佢做 Edit 就好方便, 改/加 Tags or Cover, 兩隻 CD 合併為一隻都得, 加埋歌詞又得.

Wav files sound a little bit more natural than the flac files to my ears.  
 
It's hard to explain why two different CD/DVD writers ripping the same CD sound different too.

I have heard Audirvana at my place. Yes it is very acceptable indeed. Windows are by no means superior. The difference in fact lies in the use of JPlay which, until now, is not workable with Mac OS.  
 
JPlay is the hero behind to shed the digital cover and give the right amount of harmonic touch to the music.  
 
As JPlay develops, they should be available to Mac users provided of course Apple has no objection.

Last week I clean install my Macbook Pro 2009 to their newest OS and use Audirvana Plus 1.5.10 only, then use an optimization script to shut off wi-fi etc.  
The sound is acceptable now and adding a Windows based CAS will be deferred.

I use Flac to rip CDs mainly because of its popularity which is likely to stand a better chance of survival in a fast evolving digital world. Flac (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is a lossless format but moderately compressed. I have files from der_yeti who uses Aiff (Audio Interchange File Format) with his Mac computer. Aiff is also lossless but there is no compression and hence files are considerably larger.  
 
To find out how these two codec compare against each other, I have one outstanding recording encoded in both formats and it should be a good tool to help me to find out.  
 
The result, with the help from Rlau, is rather interesting:-  
 
In times of optimum system performance, Flac wins musically. But when the system is not performing its best, Aiff would have the edge in resolution and impact.  
 
Of course I am talking about minute differences, not day and night, and yet it makes life difficult to decide which encoding method one should use since all systems cannot be optimum at all times.

Light Harmonic founded by Larry Ho. You can google his bio  
http://www.lightharmonic.com/#  
 
His Da Vinci DAC, a $10K+USD DAC, their flagship was launched several years ago bearing a more heavy duty UFO look. It was quite popular in shows in multiple rooms for a few years. Even this year in the Newport Beach show, I saw a few. Unfortunately it wasn't too good sounding at that price point, The Auralic sounds more exciting IMHO but might not be a fair comparison.

From Hollywood movies to rumors in Rothwell. UFO almost always take away our children for experiment, married our women and destroy our countryside. If the same theory apply to the UFO looking CAS unit below. It would mean, our LP will be taken away for experiment, our CD being destroyed and our women finally can be happier with lot less audio gadgets in the house!

Chip is ESS9018 but was told the up sampling strategy was very advance.  
It sounds good though nevertheless ... The external design style is not bad too, right ? We all know the initial excitment of a new piece of equipment don't generally last too long ... I'll have to see how I feel in a couple of weeks about it.

All those gadgets BTW do not require power to operate, which possibly means that they make use of their natural  
resonance to enhance particular frequencies to the sound, in more or less the same way that Shun Mok has been doing.
