    I sound like a broken record, but this is amazing Josh.

    Album of the Evening

    I recently started listening to one complete album from start to finish every evening. It's really great to sit down, no Internet, no phone, no iPhone, no i-anything and close my evening out with uninterrupted music. There's nothing like closing out each day on a great note, no pun intended. I want to start this thread for people interested in doing the same thing. Listening to an album every evening and posting simply the artist and album information. Doesn't have to be a picture or the cover or a link or anything. It's more about enjoying this wonderful hobby. I'll start with my Album of the Evening for tonight: Artist: Boston Album: Boston

    I think that was the point :~)

    If we can keep the conversation to items like this, it’ll go much better. Music and this wonderful hobby help countless people every day.

    I haven't seen any insults toward you. Can you please use the report post function to let me know what you think is insulting? I'm more than willing to be wrong.

    It would be great to have the entire conversation in pubic so the company can set any record straight. Only companies with things to hide want things away from public spaces.

    VinylStream Anyone?

    Has anyone used VinylStream yet? It's $20 per month. Second question, is this legal? https://vinyl.stream/

    Any Way To Search This Field In Roon

    I have a bunch of albums with XRCD24 Audio Wave in this field, but I can't find a way to search the field. I could adjust the title of the album, but I still have to find the albums among 21,000 albums.

    Roon calls it a version.

    Any Way To Search This Field In Roon

    Hi Dirk - This isn't a format, it's something auto generated by Roon based on my album name / folder structure. Also, XRCD isn't a format that appears in the focus.

    Thought someone here may have an idea :~)
  15. Just received this vi email: The Optologic DAC The Formula Dac is the first in the aqua - acoustic quality's production to show a proprietary D/A conversion system, that we name Optologic Dac. This conversion system follows the same multibit technology (already used in the previous world acclaimed dacs such as La Voce and La Scala) but with a discrete R2R resistors ladder instead of Burr Brown PCM1704 dacs. Technology Galvanic and magnetic isolations are implemented between the FPGA and the four branches of the R2R ladder converter. This creates complete isolation of all digital circuitry - including the clock - from the analogue section for a pure clean ground plane. It also plays the main role in the differential management of the R2R ladders, achieving perfect symmetry between the counter-phase halves. The result is the highest tonal contrast and naturalness never heard before from digital sources. The Formula Dac uses no digital filter or any other compensation, relying instead on maniacal attention to each sub circuit. The analog and digital power supplies are executed purely discrete by extensive use of BJT, Mosfet, Jfet and ultra-fast diodes. Passive parts were selected not just for the best sonic result but also for their top quality, longevity and reliability. With the exception of six superior quality electrolytics, all other caps are Tantalum, solid-polymer OS-CON and double-metalized MJP. The signal path itself is direct-coupled and free of all capacitors. The two output stages (one single-ended, one transformer-coupled balanced) use discrete BJT and JFet with metal-film resistors. All the electronics parts show an ultra low RF noise.

    I really enjoyed being a guest on that show. Don’t forget @DougAdams 🙂

    As the title says and per the request of the CA Community, here's the official A+ topic for Windows.

    Chromecast Audio is Dead

    Get them while they last. Google has killed the Chromecast Audio. Google: ”Our product portfolio continues to evolve, and now we have a variety of products for users to enjoy audio. We have therefore stopped manufacturing our Chromecast Audio products. We will continue to offer assistance for Chromecast Audio devices, so users can continue to enjoy their music, podcasts and more.”
  21. At the request of some CA Community members I have created a thread for us to discuss any streaming problems with TIDAL HIFI.

    Audirvana Plus 3 (official thread)

    Hi Guys - In anticipation of Audirvana Plus 3, and seeing how large the AP 2.6 thread has become, I started this thread as the location for all AP 3 conversations.
  23. As the title says, this thread is for Qobuz issues.

    Large dynamic range recording is not useful nor necessary

    Next time that happens send me a screenshot so I can look further into the specific firewall rules that was triggered.
