  1. I love IDAGIO's search paradigm as well.
  2. Free exchange of opinion and genuine open discussion can only happen in an atmosphere of respect and civility. Not sad, but true.
  3. I disagree. Moving a post to what is deemed to be a more appropriate category is an organizational act, not suppression (censorship).
  4. If I have gleaned anything from this site, it's this: sound quality is in the ear/mind of the beholder. Jesus is wise to not go there.
  5. I agree. I have more classical music than any other genre, and my jazz collection comprises my second largest genre. You are much more knowledgable about classical music than I. The structure of Idagio allows me to not only find music of my choice, but also serves as a pedagogical tool. I have bit the bullet, and subscribe to both Qobuz and Idagio. Not ideal, but Idagio is helping me to learn more about the vast world of classical music. Qobuz allows one to conveniently choose a specific genre. Maybe Qobuz could develop a schema tailored to the r
  6. Thank you for the info about Roon's treatment of classical music. I have spent more time than I enjoy organizing my classical music, so I have been hesitant to pass the metadata on to Roon due to concerns about not liking the results.
  7. Actually, I like the way Idagio displays on my Macbook Pro. Also, I am tired of apps that fill small-screened mobile devices with icons and images when text would be much more efficient, displaying considerably more info on each screen. The fewer screens required to navigate, the more cohesive sets of data seem to me.
  8. Yes, I am a subscriber. I asked the question out of curiosity. There are many people on AS who appreciate classical music. I am puzzled by the apparent minimal interest in Idagio's streaming service. I know it has significant deficiencies, but it's not unique in this regard. I also think it is aesthetically inferior to a couple of very popular services I have seen. However, it is the only service I have used that seems to acknowledge the specific additional metadata required to perform meaningful searches and retrievals in the realm of classical music.
  9. I'm sorry Airplay did not work out for you. We share the same concerns regarding Idagio's lack of DLNA and gapless playback support. However, Idagio's unique use of classical music's metadata and related search schema are very strong draws for me. Each of the various streaming services I have used have their own particular strengths and weaknesses, so I find I subscribe to multiple services to fill in some of the various inadequacies. In my opinion, this is not ideal. At this point, I am reasonably satisfied with switching between Qobuz and Idagio for most o
