    Article: Audiophile 5: Roon 1.6 in 5 Minutes

    I like how the track and lyrics can display on Google Home. Can some people offer other ways to get a display like that?
  2. My airport express got fried from thunderstorm issues this week and I was wondering about an alternative. I run iTunes, tidal, Spotify, and Roon to Schitt Bifrost then to audioengine speakers. Any ideas?
  3. Still having problems with this...anybody have advice? Sometimes the sync works but not always and I can't figure out why that is. Integrated Mode works for about 30 seconds and then goes silent.
  4. Audirvana won't update iTunes playlists now using 2nd method. Audirvana is the newest version. Worked before. My iTunes is on a NAS synology. Every time I push sync it syncs for about 30 seconds and is done. My library is in Audirvana and the playlist names but no files in the playlists. Any advice?
  5. I would like to try this but I'm a novice. Where do I put the code of: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Label</key> <string>local.bitrot.checker</string> <key>WorkingDirectory</key> <string>/Users/yourusername/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music</string> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>/usr/local/bin/bitrot</string> <string>-c</string> </array> <key>StartCalendarInterval</key> <dict> <key>Hour</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Minute</key> <integer>3</integer> <key>Weekday</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> </dict> </plist>
  6. I have the Herus and haven't used it for two years. Plugged it in today. Sounds good. Is this still considered a good mini DAC/AMP? Does anyone use it with iPhone?

    Article: The Music In Me: Rap of History Backwards The

    Many comments in this thread have my wondering "what?!" Ice-T said an interesting comment, and I have read similar articles about this topic, about the N word and how the black community wanted to take the word back from the white community using it as a term to demean. I don't always agree how rap uses the word but I understand this particular purpose.

    That's simply not true, sorry. Since many hip-hop songs sample jazz music. Just one example: Stetsasonic "Talkin All That Jazz" - Bohemia After Dark - YouTube

    Love it when people dis rap as not music. Come on, not music. Really? Hip-hop is just a natural extension from jazz, blues, rock, etc. When rappers boast that he is the man, it's just like blues singers or Stevie Winwood boasting "I'm a Man". There is so much cool hip-hop out there in every single language. Just because you don't listen to Kendrick Lamar doesn't mean you don't like the genre. It's like you don't listen to Taylor Swift but still listen to the Beatles - it's pop music. You choose your favs.

    Article: Notes From a Disconnected Axpona

    I enjoyed your article, Chris. Music is what it's all about. Right now on my system, I've got a mix of 2000s British rock: Clinic, The Futureheads, and Good Shoes. Loving it. Btw, I saw that Ratt/Crüe show and Dio, Twisted Sister. Oh those high school days.

    The New CA Issues and Feedback Thread

    I haven't been checking as frequently. I'm on this site maybe once or twice a week now. It's probably me but I found the new site unnecessarily complex. I also miss the app.

    PJ Harvey : The Hope Six Demolition Project

    Just saw PJ at the Fillmore in Philly last night. Awesome show. The songs from the last two albums really come alive with the 8 piece band she has behind her, including Mick Harvey and John Parrish. Don't hesitate to go if she's coming to your town.

    Audirvana Plus 3 (official thread)

    Does anyone else feel using Tidal in audirvana is easier than Roon? For me seems more intuitive.
