  1. I've the same experience with Spotify via iPhone vs Spotify Mac app (both getting to the speaker system via AirPlay): The Mac app sounds much better, no contest.
  2. Indeed, fair enough. This post came up just as I was about to give Qobuz a try, and I abhor poor customer service (because I deal with so much of it managing elderly parents' affairs on top of my own). I'm customer-facing in software; I know it's hard to please everyone. I expect the accounting team to do better though–it's just debits and credits and you have allowances for customer issues, so just fix the damn problem please. Good luck, better listening!
  3. @Johnseye Thank you for the public service announcement and sorry for your hassles. I appreciate that you just saved me from wasting my money on a company that doesn't have its customers and customer service front and center. Such a shame; I hope your social media efforts provide some remedy.
  4. Three examples of my young/modern favorites are: BONUS:
  5. I have taken audio for granted. My son sings in a boy choir and they were part of an amazing ensemble performance of Carmina Burana in a lovely acoustic space which was recorded. We sat about 15' from the soloists and piano–what an experience. I thought the recording would be marvelous. I obtained a copy of the recording after a couple weeks. I wondered why it was taking so long, and after I got it, I was reminded why recording is a bit of an art itself. Despite hitting the wall a couple times in the beginning (Carmina's dynamic range is just too wide, I guess), the rest of the per
  6. @PeterSt You and a number of people here are welcome to come by so we can listen to music and have a beer! I might even open a bottle or three of wine and share some nice Scotch if you make the journey to Seattle! But it's the local "microbrews" like this one <https://reubensbrews.com/> that make it worth the trip. Oh wait, we're not "open" yet. LOL (Not that this is funny, read that as a letting-off-stream laugh.) Thanks for posting the pic. Let's see how well I decoded the last post of TANF or whatever it was! hahaha
  7. The lack of photos here, despite my urging Peter to do so, says something about its members, LOL. 😉
  8. Well if anyone feels more voices/votes is more legit, then +1 for power. Paying for quality power has paid enormous emotional sonic dividends over the years. In fact I have considered power the most important factor in my system for a long time, and power especially opened my ears with digital signal quality five or six years ago. YMMV.
  9. "The dogma is strong with that one..." 😉 There's another well-known and very successful audio company that makes great products but eschews commentary on what we as their consumers, hear or don't hear. Just as well, and yet because of how prominent they are, and because of how their demographic is influenced by them, I wish they would "care" about power and cables as much as the more discerning ears here do. Regrettably, we're all simply human and they have their blind spots as we all do. My dogma: Everything counts in large amounts, and clean power uber alles, and YMMV
  10. @charlesphoto I sold my recapped CB NAP 250 to a friend to pick up a newer DR for myself, but the CB has "the sound" we love Naim for! (I love my DR, too.) Regarding your cable comment, I just noticed the boys "across the pond" talking about Witch Hat cable's Morgana cable for Naim. They're ex-Naim techs turned Naim cable specialists. Mine aren't here yet so I can't comment on the sound, but they're well regarded, it seems. (And clearly worth taking a flyer on, for me anyway.) Love the old recapped CB sound however! Congrats!
  11. We have many criteria for sound quality. One aspect I've found lowly CDs to beat file-based playback is leading edge dynamics, in my system. Annoying! The one thing I have long and am still currently experiencing is that the power supplies of the digital signal path are critical. Jason and company don't seem to be true believers in the "last mile" of power, unfortunately.
  12. Please don't poke the bears! And BTW at those prices, a huge value. They keep it together from top to bottom (which many cables do not, IME).
  13. https://www.mcssl.com/store/silnoteaudio/bnc-cables Highly recommended.
  14. Sorry - double posted via Classifieds. Please see further details there, and a correction here: USB in only for digital input, not output (only BNC).
  15. View Classified FS: Lumin D2 Streamer/DAC in Black Lumin lets you hit several birds with one stone! This is a functionally perfect streamer and DAC featuring dual Wolfson chips, on-the-fly transcoding/upsampling to DSD, balanced output, and the new Leedh digital volume capability for direct to amp or speaker possibility. Flip between Spotify Connect and UPnP output easily, Tidal and Qobuz too. No physical blemishes, sounds great–I'm selling to go another route (realistically I should've gotten the U1 instead).
