Qobuz now has family plans. 6 accts for 24.99. Not bad
That is the deal for people with multiple personalities
Glad this is an option for that rare YMO "family" ;) Qobuz is painfully Dad-Fi tho... and I know I couldn't convince any of my family to use it vs Spotify, which sounds gud-enuff and more importantly is cornering the market in audio content.
This is cool if you can convince your family to join in. My mom is still surprised I pay for music at all. My dad has only listened to the same 10 CD's for as long as I can remember. My brother is a free Spotify Philistine.
Why is more often than not, cheaper to buy a physical CD & have it shipped vs purchasing a digital download.
usually 16/44 is standard CD price (though not discounted), and when > 16/44 is available it's always cheaper than the usual "Hi Res" outlets...
The album I was looking at was 11.49 via Qobuz, 11.99 7digital and 17.99+ hi-res. But only 6.49 for CD via Amazon. It’s messed up
Yes, it's an inversion but such things are common in market transitions, and in this case the long slow death of the physical media market.
If you are using the Tidal app, be sure to uncheck "Loudness Normalization." It completely kills sound quality.
I usually do not pay attention to its settings. Casual listener here. Please explain. Does this Tidal setting make music less dynamic like the squashed Audioslave disasters?
Discovered the setting while trying to figure out why Tidal via Roon sound much better than the Tidal app on the same computer. The setting seems to compress and decrease the dynamic range. It's quieter but even raising the volume to try and match it still sounded bad even to the point of being harsh.
ProStudioMasters has a section titled "UP TO 30% OFF SELECT ALBUMS BY SLAYER AND HANK MOBLEY!"... seems like an odd combo
Next up: 35% off DMX and Antonio Carlos Jobim!
Kenny G + Merzbow FTW!
30% off Hank Williams Sr and Hank Williams the 3rd!!!
What's the difference between a violinist and a seamstress? ...The seamstress tucks up the frills.
While a violinist fucks up the trills?
Rough start to the MotoGP season, first two races cancelled
Loved watching the 500GP back in the day, Schwantz was my hero.
Not amused by this late start either... and WSBK is too hard to catch on TV here in the US.
the economic impacts of this whole mess are just getting started... https://images.app.goo.gl/coew9oz3v2oSEmTM8
Thanks to those that recommended Custom Cans cables, received my sets yesterday and they are fantastic!
agree... I picked up a loong cable for my ZMF's at a price lower than I typically pay for half the length. Awesome cable (someday I'll try building my own... but not now)
I used to think Eric Johnson (https://bit.ly/316EvCT) was crazy to prefer a brand of 9V in his guitar pedals…now I get totally get it
Awesome, Amazon Music now has HD streaming https://www.amazon.com/music/unlimited/hd?
Trying it out. Not an insignificant upgrade from their standard service (I think it's 256kbps AAC?). I don't think it's quite as good as my CD rips, but not bad.
Most obvious difference is that the volume is a lot louder than it was before.
@rlow I think Qobuz fucked up their pricing. $20.00 a month for 16/44. That puts tidal and Amazon as better value propositions at the same price or lower.
Heard Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood on vinyl last night... so good!
RIP and Godspeed Jessi Combs.. you were one badass girl! https://bit.ly/30Gm4ny
Died doing what she wanted to do. Too few can say the same.
wow, woke up to friend status.. This place has been a huge resource, thanks to all that contribute
ZDT Jr, It may be the new shiny, but I find myself listening to it way later into the evening than I should...
Now the real question of how does other EC gear sound starts bugging you.
If I wasn't converting the dining room (used twice a year.. waste of space) into a two channel room, I'd be seriously looking at EC and DNA amps!!
Liking the new Schiit supporter graphic
There are a couple more:https://www.schiit.com/public/upload/images/apeschiit%20speakers%204k.jpg and https://www.schiit.com/public/upload/images/schiitfire%20mark%202%204k.jpg
Those are great. And as a recent chihuahua owner I approve of chihuahua content.
I love those. So you're saying that aliens prefer the original Ragnarok over the Rag 2 on HD800s?
Looking at picking up a ZDT Jr, give it a whirl or just go big.. currently have Vali 2, Mj2, MCTH and Gilmore LT mk2...
I really like my ZDT Jr. with the HD800 and HD600. If you decide to go that route, make sure the hum is fixed. I’m in the same space. Can’t decide if I’m ready or want to spend that kind of money. Hope you figure it out.
Go big.... :) DNA or bust...
Also, for me, Af with the feedback mod is best only for folk acoustic music and bass light stuff. Otherwise NFB is great.
currently trying to figure out how Roon gets from Rodrigo Y Gabriela to Chickenfoot in 3 songs..
Yeah that's definitely less than six degrees of separation.
