My previous post wasn't any kind of explanation for why it doesn't work for you. It was a simple statement of fact saying that the component works in exactly the same way when a new track begins.

Also, it works fine for me.... this gif is quite large though (12MB)..

Is in error when the PCM samplerate is 88.2k?
What do you mean?

What happens with the old and new algorithms when you take the samplerate up so that a good portion of the noise shaping is still present?
I ran the scan with the original 2Bdecided algorithm and the new ITU one on a few different sample rates. The results are rather strange:

Sample rateITUOriginal
352.8 kHz-3.99 dB-1.98 dB
192 kHz-0.96 dB-3.74 dB
48 kHz-1.47 dB-1.98 dB
44.1 kHz-1.47 dB-2.07 dB

Especially curious how the 192 kHz version gets treated so differently.

Edit: wrong sample rate had slipped in the table.

The code inside both components is identical for on_playback_new_track.
Embarrassed,  :-[ ´╝îforgive my poor English. I mean, after modify the code as you said, when I play a new track, still can not automatically refresh the cover, need to manually refresh or about 20 seconds automatically display the cover of the new track.

Where might I find that DSD file to try my procedure on?
I happened to find it with SACD and DSD Google searches when I was looking for DSD test files to play with. Its legality might be an issue.

I used poor wording in my original post, I did see how you performed your test but I used a different method that matched OP's ABX trial.

Converting the previous Pink Floyd DSD file to 96 kHz PCM leaves majority of the noise shaping noise out. RMS power for this version of the file is -22.68 dB. High passed to 22 kHz shows -61.99 dB for the ultrasonics. 22 kHz lowpass gives the same RMS power as the full file, -22.68 dB. And for Greynol's information, ITU 1770 loudness scanner gives the same loudness value for the full 96 kHz track and the lowpassed one.

I've tested with making the same change locally on 10+ files i have and it works just fine with v1.3.15 but not with not with your sample files. Don't have a clue what's going on with your files........

Yup. Dunning-Kruger + a financial self-interest in peddling woo-woo products = hilarity.

You can create MP1 files using the pegase encoder.  Here are some test files I created years ago for testing the rockbox MP1/MP2 decoder:

Am I right in thinking that MPEG-2.5 is MP3 only?

Edit:  misread.  I believe it is in practice.

Hmm, after looking into these things a bit more closely, I think I was in error about MPEG-2.5 and anything except MP3.

Am I right in thinking that MPEG-2.5 is MP3 only? I couldn't find any material suggesting that MPEG-2.5 covers MP2, let alone MP1.
