  1. @Ales Prochazka Can I create a playlist from HQPDcontrol app, by saving the current queue? This would be the equivalent of clicking the save button on HQP Desktop.
  2. I still see Moderator Actions at the top, just don't see the strip that identified who the moderator(s) are. If so, that's a minor issue.
  3. Delightful! http://open.qobuz.com/album/0848033016250
  4. If you haven’t already, search albums matching “Everest Tape” and enjoy them. I marvel that these are circa 1960 recordings, the SQ is so stunning. Listening to this gem tonight. http://open.qobuz.com/album/0848033016540
  5. A brand new release. Liking it on first listen. http://open.qobuz.com/album/fgzcqwfhi8dla
  6. Thank you so much! I look forward to listening to these soon.
  7. Thanks for the recommendations. If at all possible, please send me Qobuz links so I know which ones you're recommending.
  8. This post from head-fi has a good picture of what was demoed at CanJam over the weekend.
  9. I did, and did not find the Berlin Phil version (from 2002) as engaging. I'm sorry I have no musical training, so cannot get into technicalities, but I did feel the CSO's playing was more heartfelt, and — dare I say it — more virtuosic. And I mean no disrespect — I am a huge fan of the BP. Finally, the SQ of the CSO version, despite being from 1984, is just stunningly good, and better than the BP version. Of course, this is just my personal opinion, and YMMV!
  10. Over the last couple of days, I’ve been enjoying various acclaimed Mahler 7th recordings on Qobuz, and comparing to my favorite version by MTT/SFS (Michael Tilson-Thomas/San Francisco Symphony. Many, like the Bernstein/NYP, Tennstedt, Sinopli, Rattle, even Solti/CSO, did not pique my interest. The first that did so was the Zinman I posted last night. Today I may have found one that gives MTT/SFS a run for it’s money. It’s the Abbado/CSO. Not only is it a wonderful interpretation and performance, the recording quality is sumptuous!
  11. For those looking for more clarity on how (and why) to use the combine.json feature, here's an example album I just ran into. https://www.qobuz.com/us-en/album/gustav-mahler-symphony-no7-chicago-symphony-orchestra-claudio-abbado/0002894455132?qref=dpa While this symphony has 5 actual movements, the CD is indexed into 21 "tracks." To coalesce these back into the 5 actual movements, thus allowing longer tap length filters to be used by PGGB, you would create a combine.json file with a single line (below) and place it in the album folder prior to processing with PGGB. ["1:8", "9:12", "13:15", "16:17", "18:21"]
  12. Feeling kinda stupid. Had never registered these 24/192 remasters of the classic ELO albums, How did I miss these?! http://open.qobuz.com/album/poz0xu3fglwvb
