Sound (beep) signal and manual focusing with the DA*300/4

I finally got to try the Q with the adapter and my DA*300/4 this morning (no pictures here yet though) .... what a reach!!

My question: why don't I hear the "beep" when manually focusing ?
Yes, I have the option(s) set for the beep to be heard when the image is in focus; I set up the $x magnification and also the focus peaking.
When I obtain focus (verified with the focus peaking), the sound is not heard.
That could be a little annoying when depending on the sound rather than what's on the screen (monitor) to confirm focus.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks for suggestion(s).

The Q does not have a focus confirmation capability for adapted lenses, you are on your own.

Thanks for the reply!

Yep ... on my own but that's quite alright: the focus peaking does help a lot.
