    5G - Are We Safe Or Insane?

    Meanwhile I will try to live as far as possible from the cell towers ... They are already announcing here 5G, although 4G still does not work very well. My country is very mountainous, so we need too many repeaters to make it work normally. I know that in India they are promoting 5G Plus to try to ensure that the majority of its population has better access to the information necessary to achieve a better socio-economic development. Hopefully we do not finish more Zombie than we already are 😂 Roch

    5G - Are We Safe Or Insane?

    Speaking of conspiracy minded folks: I knew someone who said anti-biotic use was using the devil inspired idea of evolution coupled with human greed to create with nature's help planned obsolescence in the medical field. Anti-biotics were invented for this purpose because scientists knew this would happen. Doctors use anti-biotics, bugs evolve, you need more new anti-biotics and the evolved bugs are hardier and more prevalent and you need more even newer anti-biotics. Finally you need them all the time almost everywhere, and every step of the way doctors have more infections to treat, with more expensive anti-biotic drugs and a exponentially growing cycle of dependency that makes doctors rich and drug companies richer. Sometimes people should step away from the cupboard where they keep the cooking sherry. Maybe we just need to hope 5G kills bacteria faster than it kills us. See another advantage of 5G....solving the anti-biotic resistance problem. In short, most of us ARE safe. Only some of us are INSANE!

    Windows 10 Worth It?

    It was an amazing year (2018) for Microsoft and Windows 10, particularly since the fall. Who is Windows 10? Us the advanced users and beta testers and communicators.

    5G - Are We Safe Or Insane?

    Google must know something more than I know ... Are we getting more disconnected (with our health, out vital human values, our natural environment...wildlife animals, forests, plants, air, water, humans, ...) by being more connected and faster connected? If so, then why are we living by old rules of laws (here 1996) that are killing us more and faster? I've read many scientific articles, commentaries from expert doctors, mathematicians, physicists, biologists, ...all with PhDs and highly respected by their scientist peers, watched videos (like the above and many others), shared my findings from those, listened the non-concerned people, the minority of few concerned ones, being ridiculed, insulted, taken for a charlatan, an ignorant, an out-of-touch reality repugnant, a traitor, a mentally handicapped, a nobody. I thought to start this thread right here to see if everyone was right or just dreaming an impossible dream. And, this is only 5G that we're talking about here...much more "immersive" than anything before...3G and 4G. Just imagine starting a thread about electric and electronics! ...Like electric cars (good) and music/movie servers connected to the Internet highspeed highway with super fast telecommunication technology. Is 5G better with ICE cars or with electric cars? Do we need more factories making foil paper as a fire retardant suits? Do we look like Marvel superhero comics? ...With 5G implemented in our suits? ...To alert us of imminent dangers from global warming, climate changes, forest fires, ozone layer, gas emission levels, toxic emulsions, eruptions, emails, ...? To let us know fast that the prescriptions drugs we are taking against radiations are the wrong prescriptions because the pharmaceutical companies falsified their reports on their real effects and the doctors simply bought their formula? Are we more concerned by what we have (money, luxury items, cars, yachts, room services, fancy food, expensive cigars and cognac, ultra high end tape cassette decks, etc., etc., etc.) than who we are? ...Our family values, our health, our respect for our planet and humanity and our environment and our space, air, water and dirt? Are we going to let hazardous materials (electrical posts, like in dry areas), rule our lives and burn our houses and incinerate our communities? ...More posts, more transformers, more electronic boxes, ...more wireless brain for more and faster human damage. We don't think before we build; we just do it blindfolded like blind people and regardless of the real consequences that matter the most...the human brain cells preservation. But I'm sure I'm already @ the point of no recuperation. So why even bother? I want to live my life in the ultra fast lane, leave me alone it is my right the law says so, written in 1996. I abide by the laws, I'm an obedient citizen, I pay my taxes, I vote for the right people, and I eat meat (steaks & eggs and mashed potatoes).

    Windows 10 Worth It?

    Aren't these the finally fixed October 2018 updates? For an OS that insists on updating so much, you'd think they would be good at it by now.

    Official Qobuz Issues Thread

    @left channelBTW did you see my post on the email address for Qobuz support USA? I actually got a response from an Eric Benoit(in the USA) and from the new marketing/media director Dan Mackta telling me I am in the next batch of BETA subscribers and I will be able to transfer my playlists/favorites(will see about that part) using Soundiiz or maybe they will do it for me like they did for @TAV who got his BETA as a promo at a show

  12. Mine looks similar. That Pro-Ject ASIO driver and many others are always available in your system. If you look instead at the list available via Account icon > Music Playing > Listening preferences, you'll find that one and other unfamiliar choices listed there, and other player apps often list even more. The pop-up menu you've opened in the screen shot above is an attempt at simplification similar to what the main Windows Control Panels and the Tidal app do: hide everything except connected hardware "Speakers". Something weird about the Pro-Ject ASIO driver causes the Qobuz app to display it there too, probably because it is the manufacturer's priority driver for that device. It works, but WASAPI is a newer driver standard and works great with the S2D too. Try Exclusive Mode, just like in Tidal. Oh, and welcome to the Light Side! (As opposed to the Dark Side.)

    5G - Are We Safe Or Insane?

    Google must know I've been on this thread because this video popped up on my YouTube home page, so I thought I'd share it here lol. I'm not interested in the drivel of the reporters/journalists in this video but there were a couple of snippets from a doctor and a scientist. For the record I mentioned earlier in this thread that concerns about cell phone towers and mobile phone use causing cancer have been discussed for 20 years but I'm not interested in Faraday shielding myself at home and when I leave home. I just do sensible things like try and avoid holding the phone to my head if possible (speakerphone, mic'ed earphones) or keep the phone a few meters away from me when I sleep (inverse square law). Apart from that I don't think about it much because cell towers and WiFi access points are everywhere I go. Still interesting to hear the concerns of scientists though.

  18. I am sure I can do better than my Sonos Connect for streaming into a Pavane. I listen to Pandora Premium, Tidal Hifi, Deezer, and will be trying Qobuz if it ever actually arrives... I know my Sonos Connect is pretty dated, but it does sound good streaming into my Pavane. I am looking to replace it with something with something that streams hires, assuming I will need it for Qobuz. I would rather have a plug and play item, controlled by an iOS app. I did see the Arcam rplay, which offers all my currently used streaming services. Any others I should consider for a streamer alone to use with an outboard dac?

    AudiophileOptimizer BETA Thread

    Hi All AO version can only be installed and run on „supported“ versions of windows. Supported means that AO is tested with them and we know everything works as designed. This is important so you can experience the functionality you expect. Each AO versions knows very precisely which version of Windows it works with, and checks for this on every start. Same applies for ServiceTool and Setup. (this also helps to prevent waisted Activation-Keys) Or in other words, you cannot install AO 2.20 on Server 2019. you would just see the „no compatible os found“ message. Updating AO never requires format and reinstallstion of the OS. If you are on AO 2.20 for example and want to update to the coming AO 3.00, all you need to do is to run setup.exe of the new AO version and then the new AO one time after the reboot, thats it, all set. Best, AudioPhil

All that technologies, Pherhaps could be interesting in the future, but today is too expensive. Ubiquiti Networks EdgeRouter ER-X-EU, 5 Ports
  26. I have given up with the complexities and ambiguities of MQA and Tidal Masters, and have moved to Qobuz. Thanks to left channel for the gentle persuasion. But I am surprised to see such a baffling set of "audio output" options, and can find no explanation or FAQ answer. My selected output "Pro-Ject Box ASIO Driver" does not appear anywhere in Windows 10, specifically nowhere in the Windows 10 Sound Settings. Is it the case that Qobuz is bypassing Windows's sound stuff straight to the Pro-Ject driver somehow, in a way which Tidal does not? Can anyone enlighten me please? Left channel?
