  1. How about you focus on you and be happy when others are happy doing whatever brings them enjoyment?
  2. I remember buying the Pyromania cassette as well. One of my first. Listened to it the whole way home in my dad’s station wagon.
  3. I've compared them and the ones I compared were 100% bit for bit identical. I also couldn't hear a difference.
  4. This is the only one I don't have from the playlist. it appears that it only came out on vinyl. https://www.discogs.com/Sunao-Wada-Quintet-1-Featuring-Minoru-Ikeno-Four-Scenes/master/1284060
  5. It comes down to a combination of chipset and drivers. Using Windows on CAPS 20.1 as an endpoint, I couldn't get 32fs working. Switching to Linux NAA image, it worked flawlessly. Intel hardware didn't change, only software changed.
  6. Very true Ted. Does anyone know why there is a difference between Intel and non-Intel hardware, if someone is running Linux and using built-in Linux drivers?
  7. I keep seeing people suggest that Intel chipsets are a requirement for 32fs playback. This isn't true. As I type this, I'm listening to 32fs through a Sonore signatureRendu SE optical.
  8. Competition is a good thing. It keeps all three of these companies innovating.
  9. I'm listening to the track "Die For Me" by Post Malone. There are two guests artist on the track and I'd love it if Aurender Conductor enabled me to see who these artists are. I know one is the singer Halsey because I switched to a different app that displayed this info. The info is available from Qobuz.
  10. These products are great tools and feature packed. EMBARGO UNTIL MAY 10, 2021, 2PM CENTRAL EUROPEAN TIME Bluesound Introduces New Generation of the Popular NODE and POWERNODE The original and award-winning hi-res multi-room streaming favorites get new DAC designs, next generation quad-core processors and intuitive touch panel controls with presets TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, MAY 10, 2021 – Bluesound, makers of the award-winning hi-res wireless multi-room line of audio players, has announced
  11. Perhaps I misread this, but it seems to me that a monthly subscription can be purchased. This is a great thing for people who want to dip their toes in for longer than a trial period.
  12. As Abraham Lincoln said, "I saw it on the internet, it must be true." All joking aside, if you're happy, that's all that matters.
  13. How about streaming from Tidal, Qobuz, or HiRes Audio?
  14. At this rate, software will be more devalued than streaming music :~)
  15. Hi @GoldenOne It would be really cool to keep measurements of this DAC over time. The big issue that manufacturers, who don't offer R2R DACs, bring up is that R2R DACs can lose accuracy over time because of all the resistors. I have no idea how big of a deal this is, how much time we are talking about, or if this is still an issue.
  16. I think it would be helpful for people to compare Apples to Apples on this one. Apps such as HQPlayer and Roon are vastly different from Audirvana Studio in features. If someone is a user of Audirvana's features, it's a tough one to switch to HQP. In addition, if you stream to a DLNA renderer, then HQP and Roon aren't even in the conversation. I have no issue with people who don't like the subscription model. To each their own. But we should keep the comparisons equal when possible.
  17. You do realize that if you paid for Audirvana as a subscription on the day you "purchased" Roon, you still wouldn't even be close to spending as much on Audirvana as you have on Roon right?
  18. Episode 18 is up and being delivered to all the podcast platforms right now. We are happy to announce the Audiophile Style podcast is one of very few podcast now available via the Samsung Free app on many Samsung devices. In this episode I conclude my interview the founder and CEO of Acoustic Sounds, Chad Kassem. Acoustic Sounds owns its own record pressing plant, vinyl reissue label, original production label, print shop, recording studio, and its own LP mastering business after purchasing the Mastering Lab form the late Doug Sax.
