  1. I did compare your version to the 24/96 version that I've had for some time and as I suspected, preferred your version by quite a bit. I dug out my Radio Shack SPL meter to do some comparisons. A volume setting of 65 played my 24/96 version at an average of around 80-85 dB. That's how I might typically listen to music. Your version actually measured louder than I thought it was. A volume setting of 90 gave a similar 80-85 dB and a volume setting of 100 produced an average of around 85-90 dB. That's louder than I would normally listen to but on my system, I have zero headroom with your version. I did DL the two new versions you linked to and will see how I do with those. Thanks for what your doing, it seems a big step up in quality.
  2. I've been listening to Gold Dust Woman since it was originally released. I DL'd these and found the sound to be very impressive. I haven't had the chance to compare this version to the 24/96 version I've had for a number of years but I suspect your version will put that one to shame. I have one question about the sound however, and that is, the clip seems really down in level. I use an Audio Research Ref 3 preamp and for attentive listening would expect the volume to be set somewhere around 50-60. Might sneak up towards 70 depending on the music and my mood. But for your cuts the volume needs to be set at a minimum of 90 and maxing out at 100 isn't anywhere too loud. That doesn't seem right somehow, at least no other music that I have is like that.
  3. For some reason I vaguely remember reading a long time ago in this thread that filters 9-16 are actually just duplicates of 1-8? Or, I could have just dreamt it.
  4. As always, you’re hundreds of years ahead of the rest of us.
  5. “And what are my friend Andy Quint’s audio qualifications?”
  6. Thanks, I’ll keep an eye out for them.
  7. Thanks for the links, I’m going to try and hunt some of those down.
  8. I’m not quite sure what you mean by “Tidal sees the opticalRendu”, your iPad or iPhone needs to see it. I normally use Tidal through Roon not the app but just tried using the Tidal app on my iPad Air ll to my opticalRendu directly using Shairport and it worked fine. I could help you troubleshoot it if you’d like.
  9. Do you have the short ones like the ones that came with the original opticalRendu starter kit? I bought one of the three meter ones for my second opticalRendu but it’s about two meters too long. Works fine, just looks weird to have a big coil behind the rack.
  10. They already can do that, it’s called Shairport.
  11. It’s not that I don’t use them, I just prefer the stereo.
  12. I think a preference for or against headphones is more than that. I have HD800’s, Audeze LCD-3’s and Focal Clears. I much prefer listening to my stereo over any of them.
  13. I’m not sure what’s uncivil about, after you said you weren’t aware of Mr. Quints background/qualifications, suggesting you ask him directly. I have no idea why you’re friends or even if you are.
  14. According to you he’s a good friend of yours. Why don’t you just ask him?
