  1. Right, I keep an eye out for anything they do. I'll admit to a little bias though, as I went to college with the principal percussionist Andrew Reamer (a phenomenally talented musician).
  2. If I recall, most if not all of mine are from NativeDSD (like some earlier posts here), and all classical. The product manager for that site told me they didn't always make them available because of server space requirements, and to let them know you wanted them. Here are some of mine: Honeck/Pittsburgh Beethoven 5 & 7 " Beethoven 3 " Bruckner 9 T. Fischer/Utah Mahler 8 I. Fischer/Budapest Mahler 7 " Mendelssohn MSND Petrenko/Liverpool Shostakovich 7 Honeck/Pitt Shostakovich 5/Barber Adagio " R. Strauss Elektra & Rosenkavalier Suite
  3. I was intrigued by the ADNACO USB subsystem bobfa is using. It could work in my setup, but without Ethernet I couldn't go headless, and was wondering about any adverse sonic effects from long distance USB.
  4. What type of enclosure are the remote USB ports in? EDIT: disregard, I looked at your link again and I see the USB enclosure is part of their package. Kind of looks like a little FMC with USB out instead of RJ45. So its a souped-up USB system. I hadn't heard about this until today.
  5. I know how you feel ;) So I assume the server sees just the PCIe devices as if they were a "chassis extension," but yet the remote PCIe card is connected to another processor? I wouldn't expect it would see the entire remote computer.
  6. You got my quote before I decided to be a little less philosophical and inquire about the Adnaco stuff.
  7. Hi Bob, I'd like to know more about the Adnaco tech. In the DIY Server thread we've kicked around ideas for remoting without Ethernet. This looks like one. Do the devices see the others just as peripherals?
  8. I was tempted to stay with the Scheherazade theme, but since I'd done that recently, I decided to go with some other Russian music:
  9. I just now saw this thread for the first time as I was listening to some trio jazz. These early Michel Camillo albums really have some great and beautiful (Sunset) playing.
  10. I was only thinking about it in terms playback commands from a remote device, that limited scenario I described above where music is local, USB to DAC.

  13. Ah yes, I used them years ago. The Bavouzet Debussy cycle comes to mind.
  14. For those who have a digital classical library at home, where do you like to go for downloads? It's interesting how things have come and gone, most recently Acoustic Sounds. Very early on I liked HDTracks, but not at all since the site was redesigned (and European sites closed). When not ripping, here's the ones I use (in descending frequency): - Presto Classical - Qobuz - NativeDSD - HighResAudio - eClassical - Hyperion - eOnkyo* - Mora** - Rechoku** * with help from a friend who still had an unexpired US credit card on file
  15. Thanks, I stand corrected. I frequently check it, and made an incorrect assumption based on a friend in Europe asking me to buy from the US site for him. It wasn't long ago I was impressed with how they seemed to be getting classical downloads they hadn't before. Deleting my shortcut.
  16. On Fire by Michel Camilo (from the "Essence" album) - YouTube
  17. Still up in the US, and I think one of the better options now for buying classical.
  18. This was fun -- big band arrangements of Michel's spicy latin jazz (24/96 from Qobuz).
  19. Who knows what drives DG. A few years ago I asked Emil Berliner tonmeister Rainer Maillard for the email of the senior executive at DG, to ask why US and European retailers don't sell the latest remasters, and the answer was it was difficult, and DG had other priorities. My sense is the licensing is tedious, and the Japanese are more aggressive and have the greater demand. Very lately though, I'm seeing EBS remasters make to a few Western download retailers, but only in DSD. That 24/96 Brahms 4 can be ripped from the blu-ray release, but I'm just wary of spending $55 if it's not
  20. After exhaustive discussion of the famous Vienna Beethoven recording, I thought I'd turn to another favorite. Has anyone compared the Kleiber/VPO Brahms 4 Esoteric with the 24/96 on blu-ray? or Carlos Kleiber - Carlos Kleiber - Complete Recordingson Deutsche Grammophon [12 CD + Blu-ray Audio] - Amazon.com Music
  21. Yes, I thought about that. Prior to the Pro-USB input module, the favorite input for the MSB was Ethernet, and even now there are some who refuse to make the change. One customer comes to mind who prefered it because he didn't lose his remote, hardware-based volume control via Roon. An MSB dealer did a detailed comparison of the Pro-USB and Renderer (Ethernet) input modules, and there wasn't a hands-down winner. The argument by MSB in favor of USB was that their Renderer was "another noisy Linux computer inside the DAC." I was slow to change my Renderer because it sounded great with the E
  22. Hi Larry, I was wondering about Bluetooth for mobile access. But there is the distance limit, and my last few motherboards seemed to couple it with Ethernet, at least in the BIOS when I went to disable it after adding a fiber NIC. For you hardware-smart guys that have a creative desire, homegrown gadgets are the ones that eventually become businesses. Again, I keep thinking about that long interview with the owner and designer of Shunyata who said his hobby became his full-time job. I'll look up USB OTG.
  23. The more we discuss, the more would could discuss in this thread. Regarding noise in general, I was thinking back to not long ago, when many thought Intel Core processors and gaming motherboards were overpowered for audio applications, and some were selling smaller industrial motherboards with soldered Celerons. One of the takeaways from Taiko was that bigger was better, but a managed bigger, as you state. In a recent interview with Caelin Gabriel of Shunyata, he had a similar perspective, that our systems function in a sea of noise, noise of many types, and the goal should be systemic opti
