Just providing feedback and encouragement for the excellent sound of β3.
The concepts you are implementing in this version appear to have compelling simplicity to them.
I have now tried β3 and played without a reboot and at first, I found that the player would not execute the play from the NAS until the 2nd or 3rd click of the play. It would pop but not play. That error reduced after a few instances and I also rebooted after a few hours and now I can not reproduce that error.
I am astounded by the improvement.
Describing improvements in sound is like catching air but I will try.
The timbre and sonority of the music has improved greatly. In comparison to previous version, the notes seem to be more complete in a way where the previous version might have flat spots around the edge of a circle, now the circle seems to be better formed. I think I hear more of the acoustic of the recording. The silence between notes is easier to hear and instruments and the notes they are playing seem to be easier to hear and there is more information in that note compared to the previous version.
I heard this all from the first recording I tried and I ended up listening for a few hours because I was hearing so much better into my collection.
I wait for the final release and in the meantime I will continue listening to β3.
Thank you to the team for all these improvements.
