Friend, Male, 41, from Central Texas

Friend

I'm in a rental. Can't wallmount TV. On the stand it's not clearing the center channel. Need cheap, decent looking risers. See comments. May 23, 2017 at 6:36 AM

      What iOS app do you use for playing FLAC? (I realize that I can play ALAC natively, not the question)

        If you need to play FLAC greater than 16/44.1 at their native resolution (using a USB connected DAC), then you could use the Onkyo HF Player with the $10 HD player pack in-app purchase. The UI isn't the best, but it is one of the few options that allows you to play the files without downsampling.

        Flacplayer offers lots of the same features as Onkyo, but is strictly for FLAC. I like the user interface more so, but that's just me...

        I take his claims of being a "best selling author" as seriously as him claiming to leave the board when he said he would.

        All great songs. Probably not the same top 10 list I would come up with but 21 Century Schizoid Man would also be my number 1 if for no other reason than it was my first real hook to King Crimson when I was like 7 years old.

        Honestly it hurts my head to try to come up with a top 10. Too many good ones from all eras.

        My personal #3 of KC is Cadence and Cascade. Great overall song, vocals and instrumental background is perfectly blended together, creating a really haunting sound. #1 and #2 is still Schizoid Man and Epitaph of course.

        I love Pictures of You though.. my favorite Cure song hands down at this time. When I was younger I was more into their early stuff.

        You might be on to something with the odd snare drum. It might not be compression, as much as some other odd mixing choices that I'm hearing. The remaster was a disaster (as the link you provided noted).

        I love the Cure and use Pictures of You as a test track. The shimmering high notes are a great way for me to hear the treble qualities of a signal chain.

        My favorite song on that album remains The Same Deep Water As You. So many memories from that one.

        I stream about 5000 tracks a month, with about 3000ish of those on Apple Music. 3*13=$39, which is more than my subscription cost.

        Tidal supposedly pays the most. Apple can afford to pay more because they have no free tier, and they're a late entrant to the market and need to make up ground, so they can better exclusives if they pay better.

        From what I've read they aren't doing super duper financially. As long as they're the only lossless game in town (will change soon) they probably have no motivation to put resources elsewhere

        I think Spotify premium can sound plenty good already. If they even added Roon integration I think tons of people would jump ship. Lossless would be nice too of course.

        @Azteca sorry to be vague above, Spotify is already doing beta trials for lossless. I'll likely jump back to it when and if that launches at a similar price

        Yes, there was a news item. Happened on a plane. Exploding might be an exasperation, but they certainly burned and hurt the woman wearing them. melted into the carpet.

        Oh wait, I just saw the next two or three profile posts about... exploding headphones <Blush>
