    My laptop is a MBP 15″ Retina (2014)

    Well, so far so good. I uninstalled version 1 rebooted and installed version 2.
    All settings seem to stick after reboot. Sound quality is just as good as version 1.

    Couple of things:
    When I plugged in my headphones (JLAB BOMBORA) a window popped up asking me what to do. I chose switch to headphone listening mode but that never happened. It was still on Desktop mode. Might want to look into that.

    Also, the window that popped up asking was delayed by close to 8 seconds. Meaning when I plugged in my headphones the window took about 8 seconds before it informed me of my options. I feel like it should be instantaneous.

    Another thing is that all Mac OS X windows can be dragged around by the title bar. The DPS preferences window cannot. It can be dragged from anywhere in the body of the window but not the title bar. This is backwards. It would be nice for it to work like all other apps and maybe a setting to disable “always on top”?

    I’m going to keep playing around with it and hopefully it works well with my system.
    Thanks

    vukodlak75,

    I can confirm the two issues you found:

    • The “Ask” feature when plugging something into the headphone jack is most definitely broken.
    • The middle part of the tab area of the UI is not dragable.  You will find the area next to the minimize and close icons is dragable but that is not enough.

    These will be fixed in the next update.

    Hello,

    DPS 2.0 for OSX Beta Survey said I’m gonna receive the DPS 2.0Beta download link, more than 1 hour have passed and still nothing (I’ve checked my spam folder, nothing in it).

    Is this a bug or should I wait again please ?

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Hello,

    It’s been more than 24h since I’ve installed 2.0.0.8 🙂

    I use the DPS on an iMac Retina (late 2014), but with a Teac UD-501 DAC. It works great 🙂

    I have only one problem (that exists on 1.0.7) : When I leave monitor sleep, the sound is cut for less than one second. It would be nice if you could fix this.

    Thanks,

    Eric

    hi guys and thanks.

    here are my initial findings.

    – (others reported) preferences windows move/repositioning is kinda buggy and/or unpredictable. it may be difficult/confusing to find the location where pointer snaps to move the window. also its on top by default (might be nice to have an option to keep on top or not) need to close the window in order to focus back to the application on the background.

    – Re-Sync turns off dps plugin by default, dont know if thats intentional.

    – Check for updates not functioning correctly

    – Switching themes, occasionally creates some sort of click sound

    – new bass / treble control is kinda confusing. also the ball is off center (to right bottom) by default. dont know if also effects some value, since we cant see the values. it might be nice to have some sort of icon/text what x/y does. also, as an option, it might be nice to see and manipulate numerical values as an expert option. also, its possible to push the balls almost outside the box 🙂

    – I am not happy with the current default mbp 15 unibody profile. also couldnt manage to find where to get other profiles.

     

    mbp late 2011, i7 2.5, 16gb ram, osx 10.11.2

    ps: want to have my blue bar icon back or at least give us a option to have bw or color icon 😛

    ps 2: do we have some sort of specific bug report tool/location?

    Thanks for the feedback so far!  Here are some clarifications:

    When I leave monitor sleep, the sound is cut for less than one second.

    I’ll add this to our list of issues.

    preferences windows move/repositioning is kinda buggy and/or unpredictable.
    Might be nice to have an option to keep on top or not.

    Yes,we agree.  We left out a few important areas that should be draggable.  And the “always on top” option makes sense.

    Re-Sync turns off dps plugin by default

    That’s a bug.  It’s now on the list.

    Check for updates not functioning correctly

    Correct.  This will be replaced with the Sparkle update feature.

    Switching themes, occasionally creates some sort of click sound

    We may be able to address this by switching DPS off while the theme is switching.

    new bass / treble control is kinda confusing

    The X/Y eq is a different method for tone control.  It takes advantage of the way a mouse or touch screen works instead of trying to emulate a hardware eq with a lot of knobs or sliders.  The frequency and gain will be displayed as you move the circle like this:eq help  We will also clean up the pixel placement so accuracy is better and RESET is in the center of the X/Y pad.

    I am not happy with the current default mbp 15 unibody profile. also couldnt manage to find where to get other profiles.

    Have you tried some of the other profiles?  One favorite is the MacBookPro 17″ profile.  It sounds great on a lot of the MacBooks.  We will be re-visiting these profiles to be sure they take advantage of DPS’s new features and meet our latest audio standards.

    Regarding download of profiles.  We are currently testing the features of the STANDARD/BASIC version of DPS 2.0.  Like the Windows version, there will be limited profiles, limited eq and only on/off control of Stereo Enhancement.  Purchasing the FULL or PRO upgrade (we are still deciding on the name) will unlock our entire catalog of profiles and allow greater EQ and Stereo Enhancement control.  As always, users who own DPS 1.0.7 activations will receive the upgrade to DPS 2.0 FULL/PRO for free.

    want to have my blue bar icon back or at least give us a option to have bw or color icon

    No problem.  We know folks are fond of the old icon!  Check out this forum topic for changing the icon.

    I’ll keep this thread posted with our progress.

    I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!

    I have come across something that was not an issue in v1.x
    When watching a movie the audio slowly ends up out of sync.
    About 15 min into the movie I can see this issue. I have to click Re-sync audio buffers about every 10-15 minutes.

    quick question; dps 2.0.0.8 does some sort of regular online registration check-in dependency?

    yesterday, whole day, I needed to be offline, start receiving nag screen regarding to the registration.

    if so, it might be useful to give some slack to the online check-in period. this remind me the old 1.x reg. problems 🙂

     

    btw, happy past-xmas and new upcoming-year (:

     

    cheerios,

    Hmmmm.  That shouldn’t happen!  Can you tell me how you were watching the movie?  Netflix?  iTunes?  We want to re-create the issue.

    start receiving nag screen regarding to the registration

    This also should not be happening.  Registration is a one-time event and should not check back.  BTW, we are making this login system even more simple so you will see some system wide improvements here soon.

    Hey everyone,

    I noticed several beta test requests ended up in my spam folder.  I sent the replies out just now.   Sorry about that.   Feel free to email me (my address is at the bottom of the survey form) if you feel your request got lost.

    I am using the latest version of VLC.

    BTW, I watched this particular movie file a few weeks prior with v1.x and did not see this issue.
    So far I have watched 3 movies with v2 and have this issue with all three.

    imho, implementing some sort of log collection mechanism, at least for the beta phase, might be handy. or run the app with a –verbose parameter to dump output to console perhaps?
