Air 3.0.2 Release Candidate for Windows and MacOS

More airyness, warmer bass, more decay & better soundstage. Subtle difference, but I prefer 3.0.1 beta.
Seems like 3.0.2 is too controlled for my system.
Had my friend blind test it twice and he described the same on the bass and the airyness.
Anyone noticed any differences as well? Or is it all suggestion?

Luckily they didn't fix my remaining bug, so no harm in using the previous version...

What I've noticed is that I find the sound more veiled, less transparent in version 3.0.2. Surely I'm going back to version 3.0.1.
Hopefully the final version has that sound quality.

For a final release candidate it is surprising that the wifi mode does not work properly. May be not white noise but simple drop out; the end result is as bad. Anyway it is not working for me except in the Ethernet mode (cable mode).
I would be interested to hear about other people testing it with 192/24 in wifi mode.

It works quite well for me in ethernet mode - if anything on my PC happens, such as notifications, then I will get white noise/crackling. With Wi-fi at 24-192 I got 35 minutes,14 minutes, 44 minutes and 4 minutes (notification on W10) this morning. I am getting a wi-fi signal strength of appx. -31 at worst.
Before upgrading to 220Pro I could not play wi-fi at 24-192 at all.
Cheers,

It works perfectly for me on my 17" MacBook Pro. Only issue is that you can't use the app before rebooting the machine, otherwise you get a generic error message.

It works also perfectly on Win 7 64b, but I went back to 3.0.1beta. I agree with the comment "more veiled"...
I'm waiting for your feedbacks about SQ.

Can someone help me to get 3.0.1beta (OS X)?

I replaced it for the RC, but want to go back. Please PB if you have it, I will send you my email to have it send over.
