  1. A few more articles like this and the name of the website will have to be changed to "Audiophile Substance."
  2. I just buy records new and rip them to mp3, and then re-sell them on eBay at twice the purchase price. Win/win/win.
  3. For that price, you could get about six Bosch dishwashers. The red one costs $100 more.
  4. For vinyl, I found acetone and DMSO provided the most satisfying results.
  5. Ethnic cleansing. Has it?
  6. Paul is one of my favorite people here. Maybe folks could agree to disagree?
  7. If you copy (rsync) a file from A to B, and then the file on A subsequently goes missing, your backup on B is still present.
  8. Two (or multiple) backups is a great idea, as is storing at least one off-site (houses burn, disks get destroyed, etc). For things like music files, where versioning isn't necessarily a good idea, a simple rsync backup is free and easy. For MacOS system files, use a utility that is resource-fork aware. (Some of the generic unix utilities like rsync might not be. Apple's is, but you have to give the -E flag ).
  9. Maybe there indeed is a case for new pronouns, after all.
  10. In my office at work, I have the following setup: 1. Vanatoo Transparent One speakers, connected via USB to an ... 2. iMac (about 10 years old, running 10.13.6, no core audio kernel extension replacement) 3. Audirvana 3700 (older non-MQA version) for playback software. The volume can be controlled either from Audirvana or from the system's master volume control menu item (assuming the Vanatoo speakers are turned on and are the default system output). I've noticed if I turn the volume down in Audirvana, and then raise it up again, one of the speakers will be significantly quieter than the other, and this is reflected in Audio Midi Setup. If I control the volume via the system control, all works correctly as one would expect (so my workaround is to use this, but I would prefer to route system audio through the internal speakers). Any ideas/fixes?

    Think you don't like opera? This film is for you: https://www.bbc.co.uk/ideas/videos/think-you-dont-like-opera-this-film-is-for-you/p07ysvfy (I think I hate it even more, now that I am better informed.)
