Our processors are pretty close Simon and not sure how much RAM is needed for DSD. Either way I'd expect the CPU to usage to be very similar - at least with the Mojo.
Were you using the quad DSD (256) version of the album as I think there was a 64 and 128 version to pick from too?
Initially when I got HQ Player working it seemed to be down-scaling from quad DSD (from 11.2 MHz to 2.8 MHz) so I had to fiddle around so it was showing 11.2 MHz in and 11.2 MHz out. Will need to have a look in JRiver and see if that tells me what it's doing with the files.
It also depends on how you're sending the dsd files out to your dac, Simon. If you set everything on the computer to as high res as possible, you might possibly see a difference. Mine does the 'analogue' trick that Mark described for me when going uo too high so I have to actually lower the output until the files sound ok on HQ Player.
As someone said earlier, it's not user friendly and I was lucky to have a remote set up done for me........
lobalwarming: Meanwhile... stick some cotton rolls under the pad roll to fluff 'em out a bit. Or just admit you like the free bass boost from worn pads. It's what I do. Except the admitting part

Mr Trev: "few days". It's said that for at least a couple weeks. I though about Brainwavz since they make adapters for Senn. Reviews say they're 3d printed garbage tho

Mr Trev: Maybe I should say "to heck with it" and just buy a ATH-R70x. Folks claim they're like 650s, but with proper bass

lobalwarming: Or... buy from Jeff... $10 more vs many $100s more for the R70x. Not sure they have 'proper' bass - more similar to the 650s than not. And not nearly as smooth up top.

Mr Trev: IIRC when I was on Headphone Bar's site they had Dekoni pads on sale for the same price as stock Senns. I'd probably go that route before being gouged an extra $10 (honestly, how can foam and velour be worth $60 in the 1st place)

Mr Trev: I just don't know how well the sound change would go down for me
Oct 6, 2021 15:07:15 GMT
lobalwarming: With the supply chain issues... $62 for a little foam and fabric is cheap. BTW - my official Senn pads cost $64 in 2019. And well worth it. ;-)

lobalwarming: I have the Dekoni Elite Velours for the 650. Gives them a big 'proper' bass boost, so you might like them - didn't at the time, but was my anorexic tonal period. Mood and whims change - pad rolling is almost as much fun as tube rolling. For only more $$$

Mr Trev: My X2 fulfills my "bassy" needs, so I don't need to go there. I'm surprised the X2s don't get more love. They seem to straddle the "fun" and "audiophile" lines pretty well IMO

Mr Trev: One of the guys I chat with on HF strongly prefers the Dekonis over the stock pads. He seems to be the exception though, most impressions I've read aren't too positive. Except for comfort, Dekoni apparent wins that hands down.

Mr Trev: Happy Turkey Day Lobey - and any other Canadians looking in
