Wouldn't it be fun if they insert a menu where you can toggle to select all the algorithm they had implemented since day one so that you can recall your favourite resultant sound in an instance?
Many thanks to the mods for continuing to tolerate all my expressive vulgarisms and harassment of fellow forumers...

When Ted first release DSD. There is lots of things he didn’t know.

Along the way he optimised and bug fix the DSD

There’s not a lot of spare resources left.

But you can have a bunch of sd cards to reload any OS you want.

PSAudio would need multiple Xilinx Spartan chips onboard instead of just the one! Ain't gonna happen ;D... Like DH say's best you could is alternate firmware with multiple SD-Cards (and minutes in-between to tease your auditory memory ;))

This time Ted Smith really nail it with the Windom- firmware- I could not believe it- my last update is still with Hurron- never like  the subsequent upgrade like Redcloud. Today is my first time upgrade the firmware.

Very quiet black ground and sound stage much wider-very "Vinyl" taste- so good. For those who had not update please do so- this could be his last firmware for "free" after so many of trial and error.

For those who premature sold it- this is the best time for DAC technology-  more good time to come.

some nice tracks for all to enjoy.
