[mode cazzeggio off]
va molto bene, imho; stabile e benusonante (ovviamente nella banda 400-4000)
hanno introdotto una cosa interessante che però io non posso provare perchè la mia scheda non supporta l'integer mode.
per saperne di più segui questo 3d:
and the results of the tuning in sound quality that brings two possible modes for the Integer Mode streaming method. Both are selectable in the user preferences, and the Mode 1 (default) is the result of the tuning (Mode 2 is the one used in 1.4.5).
I've been able to use the test bench of the French high-end hifi magazine "Stéréo Prestige & Image" to make this tuning, even with several DACs to check for consistency of the improvement. The kind of test bench where everything is heard, from the infra-bass of a several meter diameter Japanese drum that shakes the listening room, to the faintest bird in the forest behind it... And all the subtleties of a recording.
The best results have been obtained on high-end DACs with Mountain Lion, SysOptimizer set to on, Integer Mode (it makes such a difference...), and Mode 1. All other parameters set to default value.
With some lower end DACs that sounded a bit harsh, using the upsampling (power of 2, iZotope, pre-ringing to ~0.6) helped to reduce the harshness (though not making miracles for the lack of definition vs higher end DACs).
A note on the OSes: Mountain Lion is clearly the one bringing the best transparency, sound stage depth, tone accuracy. Lion brings dynamics, but is lagging in the aforementioned.
And Snow Leopard (in its "legacy" Integer Mode) has a warm sound, less transparent, but not totally unpleasant to listen to. It's rounded, warm, nice for some vocals, but compared to Mountain Lion, lacks the "glasses" to "see the finest details".
