I don't know if I can do it anymore. Computer audio may have spoiled me for that - to easy to switch if there is a track I don't like.

 


Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS>RPi4 (dietpi)>Kii Control>Audiolense DRC>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: (1) CAPS Pipeline>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)>Schiit Freya>Kii Three .(2) CAPS>ifi iDAC SPDIF>Kii Control.

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup. Living Room/Kitchen: RB Pi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

British Folk Rock, from the B&W Society of Sound site. Very light, some strange lyrics, and it makes you hum along and smile, even the first time you listen to it.

Great stuff. :)

 

This is a very good idea Chris, and my wife thinks so too. :)

Beach Boys - Pet Sounds.

 

Years ago, when I ditched the disc spinner, it's the only DVD-A I hung onto against just such a day when I could once again enjoy it in all its not-inconsiderable glory. The resulting 24/96 rip (new OS X beta of DVDAExtractor) just sounds bloody fantastic. Particularly the bonus a capella tracks at the end.

 

Nice thread, Chris. See you back here tomorrow night!

I sat and listened to Dylan's The Best of the Mono Recordings last night. I've loved Dylan for a long time but I didn't want to spring for the entire mono recordings; this one CD sounds awesome and fills out my collection nicely. The first song, Song to Woody, sets the stage nicely for the rest of the CD.
