  1. A double dollop of Beethoven from BIS ce soir.
  2. Just to clarify - I was talking about the desktop version, not mobile. Whatever you currently have on the mobile version (viewing on iPhone 7) looks perfect.
  3. Chris, I am severely myopic, so I usually welcome large text. In general, when it comes to summary views, like topics in a forum, or in an activity stream, I like the size. It's only in individual posts that it seems a bit large. Maybe dial it down by 10%...
  4. How many K-men are there on this site? Do you all live on the Cayman Islands?
  5. For the record, I have no clue what Emile has found to render the need for OCXO clocks unnecessary. When I made that comment, my best guess was a comprehensive overhaul of PSUs, all the way down to the VRMs on the motherboard. From subsequent comments, it appears it is more than that. I am of course intensely curious, but respect Emile's interest in protecting his IP.
  6. This album also has the Beethoven Septet, which I did not know well, so particularly enjoyed. https://open.qobuz.com/album/v9jsc5xociejc
  7. Here's one regarding sharing... When someone shares content from Qobuz (track, album, playlist, etc), it's in the form of a URL like this: https://open.qobuz.com/playlist/2469971 I'd like to be able to navigate to this from within the Qobuz app. Right now, you have to open the link in a web browser, then click on the Listen on Qobuz button.
  8. Like it or not, a DAC is so much more than "just" its filtering and D/A conversion design. Indeed, if my experience has taught me anything, it's that modern DACs live and die by how well they get the good old-fashioned basics right: analog output stage design power supply design clock architecture design or choice of chipsets used for interfaces like USB, ethernet Electrical isolation strategy - both at input, as well as internally Mechanical isolation via careful chassis design Parts quality, board layout, and quality of connectors And last, but certainly not least - filtering and D/A conversion design. To focus on #8 alone is to miss all the other factors that distinguish DACs from each other.
  9. Bob's video in this post shows it pretty well. Basically, once you "heart" the playlist in the Qobuz app, you can access it in Roon.
