Been lurking for a while, decided it's time to join. I have built 8 intel based PC's for streaming audio purposes, dedicated for that only. I just finished a AMD build for someone in NYC using the 1700x chip, 16GB PNY Anarchy X ram and the ASRock Falty X370 ITX/ac MB. The sound improvement with just the Ryzen compared to my 6700K intel was enough to convince me to begin building AMD PC's. The bios of these and stability is quite different than intel. I am no expert on OC'ing PC's so I turn here to learn more about OC AMD and intel and the effects it has on sound quality. I am just amazed how a small $ investment in Audio PC's can have a significant change in SQ in a high end audio system.
