  1. Yes, I wasn't denying that WASAPI bypasses the Windows Sound System.
  2. I don't think it supports bit-perfect because it is really a WDM driver and that means going through the Windows Sound System. WASAPI vs ASIO reliability might just come down to what drivers are best written for your hardware.
  3. Kernel Streaming in JRiver is just a WDM wrapper so it's not a true kernel streaming driver and therefore not recommended. https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Audio_Output_Modes#Kernel_Streaming ASIO or WASAPI is the way to go.
  4. I think you might just be overthinking this a bit and it would be a shock if these KRIX didn't satisfy you: https://www.krix.com.au/megaphonix/ Also, with all of this turn it up to 11 concert level you should be concerned about hearing loss.
  5. Thanks, so I wonder if the documented method is a little "trick" to make bass sound faster by effectively bringing it forward at the expense of frequency response at the crossover point. Albeit room acoustics might make up for it. So, I've got a SHD Studio and a Topping E30 coming. The Topping E30 is just overkill for bass I know but I'm just a sucker for OLED screens and I really wanted a DAC where all the cables go into the back of it.
  6. If it was wrong, then wouldn't that show up in the remeasurement? Correct me if I'm wrong but the remeasurement shows that the high and low units start moving at the same time and that's what you had a problem with in an earlier post stating that it would not happen. Well actually you said if they both start at the same time it would be correct which they appear to do. Quote: Now. With impulse responses aligned.... (Not the peaks.... the beginnings..... so they start moving at the same time)
  7. ... Here is an older article based on older version of the DEQX software but it contains very similar if not virtually the same information. https://audiosense.nl/pdf/where in time is your sub-woofer.pdf If you refer to Figure 18 below which is the second last page (the last page is blank) this is the result of a remeasurement after the "DEQX way" of time alignment has been carried out. This shows not the first peak of the high being time aligned to the first peak of the low but the impulse peak of the high being time aligned to the first peak of the low. In this example that is just a bit less than 33ms. Also and more importantly I think it shows the driver movement between the high and the low starting at virtually the same time and in this example that is at about 30ms. Figure 18
  8. @davewantsmoore OK, firstly can you please confirm you're referring to Time and not Step? Now, I think I may have an answer to the discrepancy and it comes in the subtlety of the words chosen. On page 95 it does not actually say to align the first peak of the high to the first peak of the low. It actually says to align the impulse peak of the high to the first peak of the low and that is not the same thing. I've attached screen shots of each. More to follow...

  10. Lewis lost to Jenson in 2011 2nd to 5th and Jenson scored more total points over the three years they were teamies. Of course we have no conclusive evidence of who's quicker, that is just plain obvious. You've mentioned your motor-sport development involvement once or twice before.
  11. Well one could argue he also had more back luck (especially Malaysia) but it was still winable. It was a year I remember quite well having attended the Austin USA and Mexican GP's on back to back weekends. 🤗 Look, I make a guess (that means I accept I might be wrong) that Max is currently the best on the grid and you're not going to change my mind no matter how much you want to nag me about it. As before, I make my educated guess that Lewis is not quite as quick as he ultimately was because of his age. This is both mental but mainly biological but nothing to be ashamed of and no reason to retire. The same thing will happen to Max one day. More on Max, he's been mentioned as the most "groomed" driver in F1 history but that is nothing to take away from him for making F1 great again. 🤭 He's won 9 GP's now and considered a veteran; at the same age Lewis was still in GP2. One last thing about Max, he's never truly been tested like Lewis has, not yet. I mean he's never really turned a steering wheel knowing that he's fighting for a championship and that would surely increase the pressure of competing. Not that I think it would phase him much, it's just that it is yet to happen.
  12. Thanks for that, very educational. As far as F1 and competitive professional sport go it is a very long time.
  13. We've been over this at least once before here with @almikel I'm only going by what DEQX have in their technical literature and have stayed firm with. Perhaps it only applies to their implementation of a Linear Phase crossover. After all this time I'm still confused but thank you for mentioning it and I'm happy for this discussion to continue.
  14. I don't consider Lewis and Max to be of the same generation (Lewis was 12 when Max was born) and that's kinda my overall point. They both are\were the best of theirs.
  15. I agree Lewis lost it in 2016 but in more ways than one. I've never really noticed that from Max and probably not from Lewis either. I would love to see Max and Lewis in the same car.
