  1. My AS trial ended so before I paid up yesterday, I went back to listening to the latest version of 3.5. No contest. I immediately activated the subscription.
  2. I am subscribing as the SQ is a clear improvement over 3.5. I only listen to local files and the interface and app work great for me. Could they be improved? Sure. What can’t be improved. I have the program because of the SQ, that’s really all that matters to me.
  3. AS sounds fantastic on my 2014 MacBook Air. Best SQ yet from Damien.
  4. I will be hosting a zoom call on August 4th with our Philadelphia Area Audio Group with Patricia Barber and Jim Anderson about the new album. Members of several east coast audio groups which we have been sharing virtual events during Covid have been invited to participate as well as members of the audio and jazz press. Should be fun. I will try to bang out an article about it quickly once we have finished. CC has an invite if he what’s to chime in here or anywhere. Any questions anyone in the AS community would like me to put in the queue let me know.

  6. I agree, how could I possibly go on without it!😎
  7. Cat 5 a works just fine for me.
  8. Don’t know but in a zoom chat our audio group hosted in June with the guys from Taiko, they recommended nothing higher than Cat 6. Something about the insulation.
  9. AS found all of my album art unlike when I upgraded to 3.0.
  10. I have sworn off live music until this thing is over. Doesn’t matter how long it takes.
  11. Nothing but Schiit for me.
  12. Well said. I feel the same way.
  13. Been busy with some other stuff the last couple of days but noted this morning that my iPad updated to the new remote app so I downloaded Studio. Been listening tonight and am quite happy with the boost in SQ. Will have to subscribe. Oh well.
  14. Claims made without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.
  15. Any word on the remote app?
  16. I have some experience with the Dolby Atmos up mixer, a few years ago though. You can get some interesting results with 2 channel to 5.1, 5.4.1 etc. if I want to fool around with 2 channel, just let me use the software myself rather than cutting me off from the traditional content. Just another money grab.
  17. I have the Akiko hamilton recording. Nice sound as most Capri CDs have. The Barber sounds amazing.
  18. Ted, the 32/352.8 file is huge. I can’t imagine how big a DSD 1024 file will be.
  19. Gee, I guess irony truly is dead, at least in regards to mQa.
  20. I only wish I could talk about them. Don’t want to get myself or anyone else into trouble.
  21. This release was recorded at the same time as the Higher release and is a pure studio recording. Hence, I did not expect to hear tons of the room. I was provided with the studio master which I didn’t expect would have a bunch of EQ or compression added or reverb. I now have a few flat transfers from tape and digital recorded in a typical studio prior to the addition of those effects. That type of sound isn’t to everyone’s liking but I just love the pure tone of the instruments and voices. I have seen PB in clubs and she does have some sibilance when she sings. There is a plug in for that but I
  22. I have been listening to this recording over the past week or so. It is scheduled to be released on August 6th. For those who are fans of Ms. Barber and in particular her album Nightclub, you will love this album. It is available this weekend only at Nativedsd.com for purchasers in the US only. It was recorded by Jim Anderson at DXD resolution at 32/352.8 and is available at 24/352.8 and many flavors of DSD. The only PCM variant available is the DXD. I would not post about it because of the later release but it is being offered this weekend so...... I was offered the 32/352.8 file which Audir
