  1. If your talking about downloads for the offline library, not purchases, what you suggest did not work. The path would not change. It gave a warning saying the quality would suffer and left the path to the C drive. I have to go in through MS operating system and delete the C drive path and only then would it allow me to create a new path. Now that I have a new path and files seem to go to it, I have no idea how to play them out of it. Is there a place to look for your offline library?
  2. Yes I agree, there are 2 functions and paths. I am only trying to import for offline playback. Files perform much better on my system when files are pulled from the offline file rather than streaming. That does beg another question. I have had Qobuz for a year or so. I had a link to get in before it launched in the USA. Anyhow, if I start purchasing music, where do I store it and what happens if I toss my existing server and get a new one. I hear you cant purchase files and use them on multiple devices. In my mind, that means you are not purchasing anything because we all know a computer last maybe 7 years. After that all your music is lost. Am I correct. But first and foremost, how I do get files into the offline library and play them back. Thanks
  3. I am using the App on a PC. I do not want the offline library on my C drive which is the operating system drive. I tried going into the Music download folder found when I drop down from my login name in the top right of the Qobuz App screen. In there it showed the path to the C drive import folder. I tried to redirect in there but it would say it may experience issues and would not change. I then followed the path in my windows file system and deleted the import file from my computer. This allowed me to create a new path to my D drive. I imported a song and it appears to have a file under D drive. When I go into the Music Downloads in Qobuz and look the Music Import Path I see D:\Import\. When I go into the Browse in the Music import path and try and pick a file it says The directory is not usable. Check read/write. I went into the MS operating system and gave read write to everything including the Music Lovers. I still cant seem to either find the way to play imported files or how to get Qobuz to use a file in my D drive. Help please
  4. I'm not locked out of Amazon. I purchase a lot of small stuff there. This seemed to slip through the cracks. I'm just mad the vendor kept my money till I popped up again. Oddly, this transaction does not even show up on my purchased goods from Amazon. Kind of like they wiped it clean so I would have a harder time figuring it out. This company smells bad to me.
  5. What PS have people actually tried here. I tried a HDPlex 100 Watt. It sound nice on my modem. It did not have enough power to run my modem and router. A friend has the Keces. It runs both his modem and router. Both us find these 2 devices to be an improvement over the stock switch mode PS.
  6. I bought a mother board on Amazon via "eServer Pro". I buy a lot of work stuff on Amazon. Somehow I missed Fedex trying to deliver. The product went back to the vendor. Today I was thinking I wanted to try Server 2016 and I needed that motherboard so I started looking around on Ebay and Amazon for it. On Amazon is said, do you want to reorder this. See your old purchase. I logged into the order and sure enough it said I bought it. I checked my bank account and sure enough I had paid $244 for it. I wrote the company and they said it had been returned March 2nd after Fedex could not deliver it. Now that they had heard from me, here is a refund, minus a bunch of money. What crap. They were waiting for me to fall of for a year or some amount of time, then keep my money. I find this very dishonest. Sure they may be busy, but it was clearly in their system. All they needed to do was send an email and ask what to do with the order. But, keeping my money for nothing was a lot better win for them. I had dishonest business. I wrote a review that will be deleted by Amazon and reported it to Amazon which they will ignore. I only purchase $2000 a year from Amazon so I'm no change. Not even small change.
  7. I screwed up my MB order so never tried it. Going to have Mojo Audio put the root linux on it. Mojo days more than a dozen have done ad I and prefer the linux.
  8. I use DB Power amp with a Nimbi Robot to batch rip. Everything is ripped to WAV
  9. Thanks, I have been looking to obtain some high res files and been unsure where to really look. I seem to have gathered about 1910 CD to burn over the past few year.
  10. You all have completely bummed me out. I am even being told the PS to the devices burning a CD to my HD affect the sound quality. This all leads me to ask, how do I find good downloads that are actually handled correct in the mastering of the original to a digital format. How do I set up my equipment to accept a transfer of the media over the internet to my house and storage drives at my place. The biggest issue is where are the good masters? It sound like even MFSL has high res that may not be all the good. Just poor masters that have been up-sampled. Is there a thread on what are the best digital master files to purchase?
  11. John, MSB and DCS and maybe others have filters in their DAC. Is your program anything like their filters ?
  12. Yes, I have that file in flac 16/96. I really like the version of SOS he sent me.
  13. Frank may have some sort of something behind what he says. Technically, maybe John can answer if he is lopping off dynamic intensity in the higher frequency. There are 40+pages here. I bet he addressed the topic. I'm playing a moderately high end system worth about $40K. I have not specifically listened for high frequency attenuation. I was very quickly enraptured with a more open, expressive, natural sound. I will take a more critical listen tomorrow and see if I hear a loss of high end detail. Initially I was struck with how much more pleasant songs were. More real. More natural. I like what I hear much more than the original.
  14. I thought taking "keeping" the file at above 24 increases the dynamic range which also lowers the noise floor. Most digital recorders are recording at 36?? Correct.
  15. I don't think I understand K-Man. I do think I'm playing these wrong. I believe John wants me to listen to the MP3 and FLAC as he sent both formats. I will give a try later. Have to finish working out and get to work.
