  1. https://www.theverge.com/2021/3/4/22313108/square-inc-tidal-majority-stake-jack-dorsey-jay-z You tell me why ????
  2. Stand by me! The factory stands for my FIVE17 speakers arrived today. Some Assembly Required. Fifteen Seconds of unboxing IMG_0187.mov Thirty-Four seconds of basic assembly IMG_0190.mov Note the DRY sand. The stands are MDF, and I would worry about damp sand, so two bags of sand from Home Depot at $3.99 each. I used about 70lbs. The rest helped refill the grandkids' sandbox! Twenty-two seconds of final assembly IMG_0193.mov I did not install the stick-on pads on the
  3. I want a tee-shirt with this for the next Audio Show we can all visit. Make some SWAG and sell it. Great poster. Tea Cup!
  4. I am looking for a really good Earl Grey. Any suggestions?
  5. I typically setup albums and playlists and listen for extended times. I never touch stuff. Also when I am listening to headphones I just move the rocking chair and everything is right there. If I need to change things I do have my phone with me most of the time. Bonus you get a nice large now-playing display!
  6. Updates from the Victrola I am slowly getting my system under control. I have dialed in on my strategy, the server, the speakers, and I am working on the DAC selection. I have been using an iPad as the control point for Roon in my system. A few weeks ago, John Darko did a video using a touch screen display on a NUC running Windows as his control point. That has been in my mind for a while. I had a spare NUC in the lab that I thought might work rather well. I wouldn't say I liked the display that Darko used, so with a little research, I found the ViewSonic TD24
  7. Found this on the Roon Forum: Theme “generator” https://community.roonlabs.com/t/heres-a-semi-automatic-theme-generator-for-1-8/145210 I can add some color to my life. (AT YOUR OWN RISK: Read the whole thread)
  8. They are very good, they did not fit my needs.
  9. None of the above. My server has remote USB ports. I am just chasing a USB DAC. The Node is for services that Roon does not provide such as Spotify and a couple of others I use. I can also use the Node with Roon.
  10. That is a long way OT,.... There are so many options to try. Not just power supplies. I have used better power supplies on things like your server and on the WISA hub. I have seen performance improvements at all the stages. It is hard to measure the value to you. Something else to try is to run the Nucleus via chromecast to the WISA hub and compare that to the Aries G1 path. See what that does for you. My path these days is a bit different. Again another thread. See my review of the FIVE17 speakers that will give you a sense of where I am going.
  11. I always had trouble matching the gear to the speakers. It was interesting to me 30 years ago! I have still been experimenting but at different parts of the chain. What I am doing now is simplifying the whole design, reducing complexity, and working to make it so anyone in the house can use the system.
