I would wait for a new version of the Amanero module. I understand it is a matter of couple of months.

I dont think a new module is needed, just a firmware update.

Amanero seems to be working on it...cleaning up the software hiccups.

I was also told that a firmware update will enable support of DSD256 and DSD512 with Linux. The new module is a separate thing and should bring general improvements in SQ.

So far, I am really enjoying the Superkomputer and continue to play with different HQPlayer settings. Upsampling PCM to DSD is a clear winner, however, when feeding GG with a DSD track, I am in doubt. When I choose DirectSDM setting in HQPlayer, it seems dynamics and transients are much better, than when I remove this option and some DSD to DSD processing takes place. Do you guys have similar experience? What settings do you use when you listen to DSD recordings?
Thanks.

I think Pipeline SDM is the non-processing DSD option.

Preference-> Settings-> Pipeline SDM see page 1 of this thread.

Do you have the tubed SPDIF OUTPUT (using digiLampizator circuit)? If so, how does it sound compared to regular SPDIF out?

Pity, well worth it, if the old SB based Transport was any indication.
I am quite happy with the USB and the SQ it provides. To be honest, my system has never sounded so good, both with PCM converted to DSD and with pure DSD.
I have just received the latest Antipodes DX. It needs a couple of weeks of burn in before I do a comparison with the
Superkomputer. So far, no contest:rolleyes:)

Hang on.. Lampizator's very own Supercomputer cannot make use of the DSD512 engine of the Golden Gate?
Well, it's AXPONA week so I suppose we can let the cat out of the bag. The first of two firmware updates is here and we're happy to announce DSD256 has been unlocked in the linux operating systems. I've been testing it for about 2 weeks in my own reference room with one of our DSD Komputers and quad DSD has run flawlessly. We will be playing Quad DSD with our Golden Atlantic and Komputer in room 634 at AXPONA this week and I'll also be receiving training from Lukasz on how to update the firmware on the DACs already in the field. :)

DSD512 support under linux should be right around the corner as well.

Best,

Fred
