Yep. In photography this sort of discussion is well understood. There is a point for a given distance of view that adding more pixels to a given image size makes no difference whatsoever. 4K is a waste of time unless you want a very large display in your face. That is a worthy goal, depending on your point of view, but for circa 60in (even higher) and below, current pixel densities are fine.

(Printers even use this to principle to portray vast colour gamuts from a very small number of ink shades.)

I meant what power supply do you have in the CAPs build?

I've been going back and forth re the benefits of a high quality linear power supply in the server (plus Juli@ card with upgraded clocks etc) versus simply leaving it "rough and raw" and slotting in something like the BADA USB to SPDIF converter. But the latter is what I would expect to be available from Theta - and sooner rather than later.

One other question: does your CAPs recognise the Theta Casablanca as a multi-channel device (when connected via HDMI)? As BD knows, my current build which uses Intel HD Audio to drive the HDMI does not. I've mentioned the issue to John Baloff but the test they ran was simply to connect a laptop computer. It required a reboot once connected to an operational (powered) CB before the laptop recognised the CB as multichannel capable. A reboot does not work in my case. I may just buy a Geffen HDMI detective to deal with the issue.

I've almost got all the bits for my next audio server build. My Haswell 4570T chip arrived the other day.

My PC power supply: Power Supply: Kingwin Stryker Series STR-500 Andrew at Small Green Computer thought that my powering the (1) computer, and (2) the Berkeley Alpha USB converter & Theta Gen VIII Series 3 DAC with separate PS Audio P500s would be better than using a battery power supply for the PC.

As to using a separate power for the SOTM USB card, not doing that now, but never know what the future could bring.

As for HDMI, it works for me with my media server via HDMI into the CB3 HD. My Media Server audio control panel shows "HR5" for the Sapphire/AMD card, it doesn't show the CB3 HD. But it works fine. HA! HA!

I would have thought having the SOTM USB card and the BADA a waste of time as the latter isolates and reclocks everything from the former. I wonder if you can hear any difference via the SOTM (with BADA) versus the mobo USB port (with BADA).

"AMD/Sapphire" - ok so you added a sound/video card to the build. Your mobo will not be communicating with the CB directly (but rather with the card). Does your mobo not have an HDMI port? The CB seems incapable of communicating properly (EDID) with Intel HD Audio directly. The software guys at Theta are looking into it but I really don't get the impression they're up to speed on the migration to computer-based audio servers as preferred source devices.

I already discussed that the Sapphire's video card HDMI port is necessary so that I can use JRiver to transmit 178-24 from SACD. This doesn't work with the Integrated Video Graphics HDMI port, which doesn't do 176-24. I have lots of ripped SACD ISOs.

As for the BADA being a "waste of time" with the SOTM USB card, seems lots of folks in the know think both parts of the equation are important. I'm not bothering with the non-SOTM USB ports, not like I don't have plenty of stuff to keep me busy these days!
post #5166 of 6787
I guess you have a very limited motherboard. Intel HD Audio, for example, can support 8 channels of 192kHz/32 bit audio over the HDMI port it controls.

I did not mean the BADA was a waste of time, but rather the SOTM was a waste of time given you've invested in the BADA.

I had asked if his Casablanca was able to recognise his audio server as a multichannel device. The Casablanca has issues presenting itself correctly as a result of its EDID. Very much on topic. Did you even bother to read the posts? The reason why it works for Steve is because he has an intervening sound/video card. When my Casablanca is connected directly to my mobo by HDMI the Casablanca does not present itself as being multichannel capable.
post #5169 of 6787
Lets keep this to Theta. All answers to Steve Kale's question's re the media server PC are in that thread here at this forum. "Limited motherboard" crap and all. Its all explained there. Including my findings with my Media Server and also a Dell 8500 XPS that their Intel
intregrated graghics/audio may do 192-24, but doesn't do 176-24,necessary for best ripped SACD ISO PCM conversion and sonics!

I get tired of answering the same question over and over in not only one thread, sometimes too. Tryin' to have a life here!!@@@cool.gif
post #5172 of 6787
Well I was unaware that you had posted elaborately on the fact that the Intel DH77EB motherboard deployed in Chris's "Zuma" CAPS design which uses Intel HD Audio Realtek ALC892 codec did not support the beloved 176kHz sample rate and that you had used a sound card to avoid this issue. I must have missed those posts (here or on some other unidentified thread). Your decision to deploy a sound card to overcome this shortcoming has conveniently avoided another problem related to the EDID communication of the Theta Casablanca which was the heart of my question. Were you to plug the Casablanca directly into the motherboard HDMI port, I'm willing to bet that you will encounter the same problem I am facing which is that the Casablanca's EDID will not show its multichannel capability to your motherboard and that it will only allow Stereo configurations as a Playback Device. Given you are the only person I'm aware of running an Intel motherboard CAPS build with a Casablanca, and unaware that you had used a sound card for other reasons, I ventured to ask the question as to whether you were also encountering the problem I am facing.

(My comments regarding the redundancy of a SOTM USB card in conjunction with a Berkeley Audio USB Alpha were, I will admit, "off-topic".)

In any event, thank you for taking the time to answer.

PS: Also, thanks for the heads-up re lack of support for 176.4kHz. I had not even noticed/thought that 'up to 192kHz' would not necessarily include 176.4. Even the newer ALC1150 audio codec used by my new ASRock Z87E-ITX mobo doesn't, as I have now found out, support 176.4kHz. I am very reluctant, however, to put a whopping great big graphics card with fans in a low TDP build.

Inability to play MCH using the HDMI port on the CAPS 3.0 mobo was discussed extensively in Steve's CAPS 3.0 thread. However, it was assumed this was related to an issue with the CAPS 3 mobo. If as you are suggesting the issue MAY be caused by the CBIII EDID presenting itself as a 2 channel only device to the CAPS 3, this would be quite interesting new informaiton. Not sure how the HDMI card would solve this problem, but in things digital all bets are off.
post #5174 of 6787
I have not seen "Steve's CAPS 3.0 thread". However, there are two entirely separate issues here. One is the lack of support for 176.4kHz as a sample rate in the Realtek ALC 892 (and 1150) audio codecs. The other is an issue with the Casablanca's EDID which does not present the CB as a multichannel device (at least to Intel HD Audio driven mobos) and this is what I am discussing with Theta. I've been told by the reviewer of my current mobo that the Gefen HDMI Detective is a useful way to fix such EDID issues but Theta is also on the case. Fixing the EDID issue will not provide for 176.4kHz capability tho' eek.gif

Understand. Has it been confirmed that inability to play MCH using the mobo HDMI is conclusively a CHIII EDID issue? I guess to find out you could post a question in computeraudiophile asking if any CAPS 3 owners successfully use the CAPS 3 for MCH audio using mobo HDMI.
post #5176 of 6787
Theta agree that a Casablanca connected via HDMI to a motherboard is meant to present itself as a multichannel device. (In Windows 7, right-click on the sound button, select Playback Devices, identify the option related to the HDMI port e.g. HSR5 Intel (R) Display Audio, select Configure and one should see options under Audio Channels for Stereo, 6 Channels and 8 Channels. I see only Stereo.) I have played stereo files via JRiver over HDMI to the CB but because the CB EDID isn't working to present multichannel capability I've not been able to play multichannel files.

Yes, people play multichannel files over HDMI via JRiver in a "CAPS"/audio server build. When I encountered the issue, I contacted a reviewer of my current (soon to be replaced) motherboard to ask about the problem.

http://www.missingremote.com/review/intel-dh61ag-media-series-mini-itx-motherboard-and-core-i5-2390t

Andrew was very helpful and pointed me to EDID issues being the most likely culprit for the lack of ability to see the CB as a multichannel device. (Scroll down to Media Performance in the review. In his case, he was using a Denon processor.)

In my past life playing with my Toshiba i7 laptop, and its NVidia card (which doesn't do 88-24 or 176-24 but otherwise does up to 192-24),
I successfully played multi-channel via HDMI from laptop direct to CB3 HD!!! No problem at all!@@
post #5179 of 6787
I will take a look. I don't have a lot of time for playing with forums and this is the only thread I watch here.

Some good news: It seems Theta may have a work-around for the EDID issue. More on this later this week.

Yes, if there is a sound/video card in your laptop there doesn't seem to be issues with the CB EDID because the laptop OS only needs to communicate with the sound card. Theta first tested the issue with a laptop, as I noted above, and while it didn't work properly first up, a reboot of the laptop when connected to a powered CB solved the issue for them. This doesn't work with an Intel HD Audio driven mobo though.

PS: I also sent a note to Realtek asking why, when ALC 892 and ALC 1150 can support 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 and 192kHz sample rates, they appear to have skipped 176.4kHz. I wonder if they will respond. Interestingly, their data sheet for ALC898, which also doesn't by it's spec list support 176.4kHz, has plenty of references to 176.4kHz data support.

The "Sound" control panel for the Intel video cards shows you that they support the above sample rates, but not 176 or 88-24.

Since you don't have time to read my media server thread here at this very forum, and I don't have time to double post in two threads, I will just post re my media server in that other thread from now on. Not my responsibility to take the time to douible post in two different threads because you don't have time to read up on your questions in another thread. Your loss I guess. biggrin.gif

I provided the sample rates in the spec listing for ALC892 used by your motherboard (and mine). I'm not fussed about 55-24 (and not sure why I would be). (Maybe I'm missing something there too.)

The Sound control panel will (typically) tell you the capabilities of the connected device. For example, in the link I provided above to the review of the DH61AG motherboard there is an image showing the capabilities of the connected Denon SSP showing that it is 176.4kHz capable. That does not mean that the motherboard is capable of sending it 176.4kHz.

I have had the Mac Mini directly connected via HDMI to the CB-IIIHD and it too uses "Intel HD Audio" and the computer does identify the Casablanca correctly as HSR5 and has played 88k & 96/24 multichannel tracks.
But I believe your right insofar as there may be a problem with playing 176k files which I believed was a CB-III problem for me.

It's been awhile since I've been set-up directly to the CB-III via HDMI from the Mini because I've had the HDMI connected to a VP so I could feed the Gen. VIII my files above 48k via digital coax from the computer by way of the VP since I have not installed the new Digi-out card and this was a work around.. The video processor feeds HDMI to the CB-III simultaneously for surround sound music but have not been able to get CB-III to play 176k surround tracks. If seems fine with other freq's in surround.

In about 10 days or so I'll finally get the new Digi-out card installed, which has been sitting here for many, many months and reconnect HDMI directly to CB-III.

So, am I to expect that the CB-III will or will not play 176k surround files via HDMI from a computer using "Intel HD Audio". I know the 176k will pass through the Digi-out card to the Gen. VIII but what about the channels the CB-III actually has to handle?
post #5183 of 6787
The issue is not the CB's ability to play 176.4kHz sample rates. The issue is whether your source device has the ability to send those sample rates over the HDMI port on the board. The Intel DH61AG motherboard, for example, has in its specs:

Intel® High Definition Audio (Intel® HD Audio) subsystem in the following configuration:
10-channel (7.1+ 2 independent multi-streaming) audio subsystem using the Realtek ALC892* audio codec
Internal S/PDIF header and front panel audio header

If you look up the specs of the Realtek ALC892 audio codec you will find:

"Support for 16/20/24-bit SPDIF input and output with up to 192kHz sample rate offers easy connection of PCs to consumer electronic products such as digital decoders and speakers. The ALC892 also features secondary SPDIF-OUT output and converter to transport digital audio output to a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) transmitter."

But further down under "features":

"Primary 16/20/24-bit SPDIF-OUT supports 32k/44.1k/48k/88.2k/96k/192kHz sample rate"

Note the omission of 176.4kHz.

This is not a Theta problem. The Theta problem I encountered was an EDID issue whereby my motherboard can not read (or the CB does not properly disclose to the motherboard) that the CB is multichannel capable.

Right, if you are doing more than 8 channels and want advanced post processing. JRSS post processing to my ears is clearly better than DD Prologic IIx and it uses stereo rears. You can do room correction, post processing and bass management in Jriver but if you want to transmit over HDMI you are limited to 8 channels. I have decided to ultimately go with Dirac in the Casablanca because I plan to run more than 8 channels.

The difference with the Lavry paper is that Mr. Lavry sells DACs and is telling us, from what he's gathered/deduced, there's no benefit to a higher sampling rate than 96kHz for audio use. If he sold DSD DACs and wrote a "white paper" pumping up the superiority of DSD I'd be more suspect of his intentions.

I find it interesting that he wrote such a paper when he's in the business of making pro and hifi digital products.
96kHz is good compromise. I can live with it as the mastering is the most important part. I would prefer the ability to handle 192kHz but most of what I have at that sample rate is 2 channel and a work around is not too expensive if I really want that.

I asked Berkeley Alpha and they recommended the SOTM card. As for the AMD card there are good reasons to include the card in a build that might serve movies as well. Right now I would recommend the Powercolor version of the HD 7850http://www.powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=473 that is fanless but needs a case fan to run cool. There are case fans that are as quite as human breathing so... You can run MadVR and get awesome video processing with enough GPU power. Many report that MadVR is as good as what Lumagen does. I don't know but it is very impressive.

I advised Steve to just add the AMD card and that way he would not have to try and figure out which motherboards actually worked. I think it was worth the extra hundred bucks. It worked with few hassles. If you had another expansion slot on your old motherboard, it would have worked for you as well and you would not have had to purchase a new motherboard. Integrated graphics just aren't powerful enough IMO to do any serious video processing.

Actually this is an interesting question. I agree that room measurements need to factor in surround processing and bass management. But if one measures room response for a given input processed by the CB then couldn't one correct at source? I guess that would require linearity or for the adjustment and audio chain to be commutative (improper mathematical term?)? (Obviously the issue with correcting at source is that you need to correct all sources.)

(BTW BD you also know from previous correspondence why an AMD card doesn't do it for me and why one isn't actually needed.)

Are their any recording/mixing and mastering stations in general use that work in excess of 96kHz?
