    The overall point is Linux is thin and lacks note decay that windows has. The win os matters plenty win 10 is not great no matter who uses it or tweaks it.
    A simple test of weight is a piano , horns. These instruments need weight or hang time to sound full. Linux is a fast decay sound .
    Like DSP is. It's not bad but if you do an A N B the sound is obvious .
    Do you have a date to hear his severs ?
    Two things. First if we are to continue this discussion, it needs to move to a new thread or into the computer audio section.
    Second, I just don't believe you. I am sorry, you cannot possibly state one system categorically sounds better than another. There are many great sounding servers in both Linux or Windows. No facts out there to state a clear winner hear.

    Also the build of the system, the parts used, the system version (update) so many factors here.

    Wisnon, can you detail your system please? Your profile is way out of date? It states you run the L4 and Nad £800 amp, is that correct? To test leading edge greatness of this or that system, it needs to be heard in a very high end system to do that IMO.

    Feel free to move the thread and I will not post of severs here.
    If you want to see my system go to the pacific in the house Thread it’s listed there.
    As for OS sounds I did many posts on CPA forums. There is no defacto specs why and most all want one over the other not based on sound alone. Linux is the new hot OS as such it must be better right. Windows must be bought so very few made servers offer it.
    I have been doing this for years and there are clear differences between them. If you search fourms you will find the proof you seek from honest posters. No builder will say another os is better of they don’t use it. And if someone owns an aurender or other linux based server will comment truthfully it’s just how it goes.
    Don’t take my words as bashing what you have it’s just honest comments made
    From my years of experience innusing them and building them. I don’t make anything so I have no dog in this fight most all
    Do due to money spent or makers. I don’t fit in this catagry
    While there may be systems that may sound better in Linux it still sounds as it does period. And if I sat next to you playing both the look on your face would tell the tail perfectly
    I know coz I have done so many times for people. Enjoy what you have and in no way am
    I clAiming what you have is bad but I am clAiming there is major changes in Os sounds.

    Respect your reply Alrainbow, thank you.

    I was more asking Wisnon to list his system, to back up his statement / personal finding. Why no up to date system profile?.


    Maybe another subject, maybe not, but I get a tired of personal statements thrown out as 'fact'. On here we need info to back it up, if we are to keep stating a personal opinion as fact. Then we can all learn from information from others and take that on board. I am an open guy, want to keep moving up the mountain of knowledge etc etc, but likewise have to be suspicious of 'facts' until proven. I sounds like Trump and fake news / conspiracy theories, but you get my drift. Nuff said.

    Final touch Audio from Serbia is superb. Phasure Lush with power cutter is very nice too. Unpowered is the way to go in a Lampi.

    @Ingemar - unpowered is a good suggestion to remove a source of noise and I sell quite of few of these cables to owners of dacs using the Amanero usb input like Lampizator and T&A. The majority of servers are happy with this, though a minority won't operate without seeing a voltage line for hand shake / recognition purposes.
