  1. Thanks Doak! I was talking to the principal behind Acoustic Portrait Records last weekend about the recording Indian Classical music and it was fascinating to discover the tremendous nuances in the music and in the recording of the music. He was explaining to me the painstaking effort that goes into just the mic setups to capture just the tabla as an example. Apparently it takes at least half an hour to get the sound right as the tabla player uses different areas of the tabla to "express" the work. The good news is that several artists have started working with Acoustic Portrait to have their work recorded. These are artists who normally would never be in the spotlight and are now getting to showcase their talent. Some of these guys are unknown and have tremendous talent. So thank you to all who have been following this thread and spreading the information on this new channel. It has been making a difference. Regards .
  2. Has Kari Bremnes been mentioned on this thread yet? I don't understand a word but I just heard her entire album "Og så kom resten av livet", (2012). Spectacular recording and what a fantastic voice!

  5. For sure Tidal keeps shoving an MQA version everytime they get the chance. But it's more than that - at several listening sessions conducted at different locations (not just my own setup) the quality of the Tidal stream was just garbage. CD playback or local file storage is so much better than whatever you get over Tidal including the silly "Master" versions. IMO You have to be completely ignorant of high quality sound if you continue to subscribe to Tidal HiFI. .
  6. Just downgraded my Tidal subscription from Tidal HiFi to Tidal Premium. Don't see the point of paying the basturds for "HiFi" when all they do is send junk down the pipe. .
  7. Prophetic .... in light of what's going on with Tidal and MQA .

  9. The Lumin D2 is one of the best out of the box solutions out there http://www.luminmusic.com/lumin-d2.html Will connect seamlessly to your USB drive and comes with a very good iOS app. .
  10. +1 Great post KP. I've found this to be true as well when I set up my audio network. A decent network switch + good clean power supply cleaned up the transients / leading edge of notes in my setup. .
