  1. For anyone using the ROG Maximus, will the HDPlex heatpipes clear that VRM heatsink?
  2. Anyone in Japan who could help me with an out-of-print track? I found it available used but shipping is a problem now. Track 10 is the Japan-only bonus track. Thanks. オブ・ザ・セイム・マインド [SHM-CD][CD] - デイヴ・ウェックル・アコースティック・バンド - UNIVERSAL MUSIC JAPAN (universal-music.co.jp)
  3. In the track after my home state "Texas" fusion jazz-rock meets country-western, with some latin moments south of the border (well, when we had a border) ...
  4. Another sampling from my Gil Shaham binge (I don't think I cared about the Bartók until now): PS - I was blown away by the cadenza in the new Beethoven. His chords sounded like more than is possible for one person, and the sound quality was so fine.
  5. Shaham's Strad is gorgeous in this recording. I think this reviewer sums it up well: Bach: Sonatas and Partitas - Gil Shaham | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic
  6. So well played and recorded, also enjoying some of the earlier quartets ...
  7. When running Linux headless without a web UI, can anyone recommend a good way for VNC viewer to work without a monitor attached? As a Linux lightweight, I'm reluctant to try the software hacks. On the other hand, the HDMI emulator/dummy plugs seem to be a waste of processing when you only need to connect once per week for updates. As usual it may be all about compromise. Thanks all.
  8. New Tower SACD rip (incl. Nos. 3 & 4):
  9. Decades of pop hits, many remastered well at 16/44. IMO Daryl Hall is the greatest pop singer of my generation. His harmonies and arrangements defined the "Rock 'n Soul" "Philly Sound" of the 1970s and 80s. These guys could sing everything. I like the close of this live concert by the Statue of Liberty in 1985 with "Hot Fun in the Summertime" (starting at about 1:06:30).

  10. He was so great ... (Japanese remasters, only 16/44, but very good SQ) My favorite version of "Spain" (still remembering Chick Corea):
  11. Starting wtih Coconuts: Doubleheader, next with this SAC rip:
  12. Didn't have time to get to this one last night, so not exactly an album of the evening, but I really like it too. I've come to prefer artistry over flash in Liszt, but everything seems to be in place here.
  13. Thanks. Back in 2017 there were the Oppo's and more expensive Pioneers, and then the budget Pioneer BDP-170/80FD, according to Ted's original post. A quick search reveals you found out about the Denons about a year ago. Good for you. I was curious about new findings as much as cost. I suppose I'll scan the thread for a list of units when I have time later.
