  1. This thread on Hi Fi Haven may help https://hifihaven.org/index.php?threads/rip-sacd-with-a-blu-ray-player.3652/
  2. I currently have no plans to ditch Tidal in favour of Qobuz. I found out about Wimp (the precursor of Tidal) via this forum and have been a happy camper ever since. I did briefly contemplate a Qobuz trial because they claim to have an ASIO driver. Turned out that it wouldn't recognise my DAC & I lost interest at this point. Things may change
  3. Or maybe they are "legal" because it is not possible to copyright mastering ?

    I now have two versions(the latest & the preceding) of wtfplay on two SD cards. Still undecided about testing methodology though. Still think the latest version is more "spacious"

    I finally got around to trying the new version.Sounds more "spacious". I'll try and figure out a more meaningful comparison
  6. Surely there are more than 123 members of CA? Assuming there are, those who have voted are a minority (possibly a very small one). Marce really nailed it with this comment, particularly the highlighted bit. "To re iterate, i believe the forum works. There seam to be a few who want not moderation but censorship of any viewpoint or point of discussion that goes against their own. Discussion does need some opposite views on a audio website, otherwise the threads become a stale endless regurgitation of the same views with no conclusions. "
  7. "I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I'll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be." - Isaac Asimov "At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes - an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counter-intuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. That is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense." - Carl Sagan Moderation will inevitably try & remove all the "most ruthless skeptical scrutiny"

    Rando, thanks for the name check, which sparked an alert, otherwise I might not have noticed for weeks! Fryderck, good to hear from you! I just fired up wtfplay in celebration. Any news about your experiments in February?
  10. Surely faith overrides ecumenical matters such as ear-plugs?
  11. I would urge you to try wtfplay. I was highly sceptical that software alone could improve sound quality. It is a bit hair shirt, as Rando indicates
  12. Sorry, I wasn't paying attention. It's OK I got the Zappa reference? The Tidal issue resolved itself without any intervention needed. Miraculously all the 10min+ tracks started playing again. This problem has also been reported on Spotify, as far back as 2012
  13. I have sufficient Internet speed (20Mbps) but am I being unduly optimistic with an Intel Atom D525 & 2Mb RAM in my PC? I suspect the answer will be yes, so any idea what the minimum I could get away with?
  14. I will do, as soon as I figure out who (if anyone) fulfills this role at Tidal
  15. Alas he died in 1978 Thanks Daccord! I will investigate further, perhaps even attempt to get a plausible explanation from Tidal
