  1. Whilst I never used the browsing features, I too primarily pick albums (rarely if ever tracks) from genres. However, I’ve created about 20+ smart playlists based on genres (another 60-odd based on albums and artists). Hard for Damien and co. to cater for all our different ... ‘play-flows’. Hopefully, the new remote can be developed over time. 🙂
  2. Merci for the remote update, Damien 🙏 As one of many who run a headless set up, the less I have to use a VNC, the better. Being able to edit playlists would be enormously helpful. Future updates that I would be grateful for: 1. Being able to add full albums to the end of the playlist queue (like the old version) 2. Edit criteria for smart playlists (add, edit or delete criteria) 3. Editing metadata (at least for album artists, album titles and genres) ... but maybe I’m the only one..?
  3. I have been able to import old playlists by adding “.m3u8” to the file name - but may work using “.m3u” too? (I never used iTunes). I had spent some time making new playlists in 3.5, before finding this trick... Hope that helps others.
  4. Just to report back to say that creating a new library file appears to have removed the duplicates in the library file and allowed me to import all my playlists. I have yet to do a thorough search for duplicates, but many of the problem albums at the top of my library seem fine (touch wood). 3.5.12 seems stable so far... but only been building new library so far. The prior issues I had with memory seems to be fixed too. So too is the annoying one when the last few seconds of an occasional song were cut off. Merck Damien for the update 🙏
  5. I have had similar issues - I think with all 3.5x versions. Some smart playlists import, whilst others don’t. Some were saved as m3u and others m3u8 - but some of each import, whilst others don’t. Even new smart playlists that I create in 3.5.12 are not importing. Due to an increasing number of duplicates, I have just created a new library file. I am able to import a little under half of all my playlists. (I have about ~50-odd, grouped into about 8 folders... some with extensive criteria.) 3.5.12 was initially crashing repeatedly upon waking up. Perhaps my old library was corrupted (I had used all the maintenance tools). Fingers crossed with the new library. (I’ll send crash reports if that doesn’t fix it). Thanks for the updates Damien. I can’t wait for updates to the IOS remote 🙂
  6. Damien - I can't thank you enough for the latest version. I'm enjoying the music more than ever with this update. I have been using Audirvana almost exclusively since it was released as freeware (2010?). Audirvana has continued to be the best 'bang for buck' in audio. It's been rare to find any hardware purchase that has improved the sound as much as your software updates have! After some hiccups along the way with the betas, v3.5 is working well (touch wood). Feauture request? perhaps not the time for such an ask. Apologies. is there any chance that the iOS remote app would allow us to change metadata? i primarily use smart playlists from my headless Mac mini. This relies on good metadata (particularly my quirky 'genre' labels). Managing metadata has been a most tedious affair via Splashtop on my iPad. Plus, with just 8gb of RAM, I'm not able to play music and use Splashtop simultaneously. If I was a little brighter, I'd no doubt be able to find some workaround for managing my metadata better. (I'm all ears people 🙂) Being able to update the metadata via the remote app - whilst listening to music, would make a huge difference to how I can manage my music. But I may well be alone in wanting such a feature? 🤔

    Audirvana 3.1

    Few seem to employ the same settings, so by all means try what others like... but imagine we all need to play around to find our Goldilocks settings. I don’t have a Chord DAC, but have some memory some preferred DSD updampling with the A modes. I use the DAC on the Conductor V2 - with the settings below. Good luck 🙂
  8. Hey Mario, i sent you a PM. My pic would be the Goldeberg Variations. (I love the tenor recording and guitar, but get a better sense of your recording technique with solo piano, me thinks) thanks ?
  9. I just came back from my first visit to Copenhagen, so it was nice to find your write up here. We may well have been walking down Strøget at the same time. As a sustainability and cycling nut, CPH did not dissapoint. A beautiful, liveable city indeed. I stopped into one hifi store. This lovely guy humoured me by demonstrating a few speakers - a B&W 800 and a Dali. They were powered by a Bluesound source. Not exactly ideal... but fun to touch in with the friendly audio culture.. far more welcoming than the snobbery I remember back in Australia... shout out out to all those fabulous great Danes out there ?
  10. thanks Magnus - I appreciate it. Life is way too short to test every permutation. Enjoy the music ?
  11. Hey Magnus (or anyone else who can make similar comparisons) would you care to give us a quick summary of how these great bits of kit compare? If you could only have one, which would it be and why? Plus, I would assume the ISO Regen has the best bang for its buck, but please correct me if I'm off base. I have been 'out of the game' for many moons. I'm like a dinasaur with my amber Regen. I take it nobody uses it any of these more advanced setups?
  12. Always great to find better setttings ? I've beeen using similar settings for the past year or so (now going up to B3, DSD128) Steepness.... 125, max, 0,97, 200, 70 as others note, it can be nice to start with other people's settings, but really felt the magic happened for me once I really experimented for myself... I imagine that the same for us all.
  13. OneHandWaving - thanks for the tip. As I corrected in my post, my issue was that Qobuz isn't available here in Finland.... Tidal however, seems to work fine. Sent from my iPad using Computer Audiophile
  14. Silly me - should have checked! I'm in Finland. As an Aussie, I'm used to being left out in the cold on these things. But assumed Qobuz was all over the EU (but hasn't been following). Seems like tidal is available, so shall try that. Merci!
  15. Thanks pabe12 an Astrostar59. I had tried rebooting before. Just logging in and out didn't seeem to help either. Qobuz individual tracks are greyed out. Error message says they cannot be streamed. Rebooted modem earlier. Can stream fun in qobuz app... Appreciate the help all the same [emoji120] Mac mini -> Regen -> Burson CV2+ -> HD560
