  1. ...went successfully through same upgrade process as well. It's really worth every $/€ and highly recommended.
  2. +1 ..same here. Absolutely no issues at all.
  3. +1 ...even if I would belong to a "small minority" , aurender enabled/facilitated me beautiful hours of music w/o any HW/SW troubles. I think, there is always a market for music enthusiasts willing to spend a lot of money in high quality products from reliable companies. My many years of experience with aurender has proven its worth.
  4. Thanks to both. I fully agree, considering mentioned amount of tracks (40M) along with current business situation. There are obviously no resources available validating purchased goods. As result, we have to do it.... Anyway, w.r.t. SQ, the overall sound of downloaded tracks are perfect (on my system).
  5. Qobuz download - measurement results Attached results of a recent download. Strange things happens above 24 Khz. Are there any ideas/explanations regarding this strange spectrum? Thanks Spectrum_Qobuz.pptx Spectrum_Audacity.pptx
  6. ...valuable recommendation. I also use AllMusic too.
  7. Most certainly more than happy. Although part of the “elderly people” club, I never ever thought that the N10 upgrade can still make that difference (re listening experience). It`s really easy to use and rock solid too. “There might always be a way better”, but perhaps – at least for the time being – I`ve arrived.
  8. With e.g. Mp3tag (freeware) you can very flexible change your metadata as described.
  9. ...I got it. Even out of the box the N10 upgrade is really a significant improvement in SQ. It kept me awake long after midnight. During the first hours (after installation) my wife wanted to listen her favorites too. Now, she is very much in favor of this upgrade as well. The overall installation in the network and the cloning of my X100 music library went very well. It has been proven to stay in the aurender family. No negative surprises, no new learning curve, valuable upgrade path etc.
  10. ...I couldn`t resist .....just bought a N10. After comparing my X100 extensively with a N10 in my changed setup again the overall N10 presentation was much better than expected. No blind test was necessary, the improvements (blackness, neutrality, micro details, quietness at low level signals etc) have been realized within seconds. Setup: 1. X100 à Devialet 220pro (USB input) à Piega Coax 90.2 2. N10 à Devialet 220pro (SPDIF input) à Piega Coax 90.2 3. N10 à Devialet 220pro (USB input) à Piega Coax 90.2 All output levels have been adjusted to ~ 0.1 dB (at 1 kHz) Setup 2 was slightly better than 3. It seems the reclocking technic involved provides cleaner “signal purity”. But who knows? Is the upgrade worth the extra amount of many? For me and even for my “very old” ears, yes. Now, looking forward to the installation by end of next week….. Manfred
  11. +1 ..... especially if you have excellent recorded and mastered music as well.
  12. …you got it! Yes, I was very close to upgrade my X100 toward a N10… but on the other hand I realized (based on some listening tests at home) that there was an urgent “need” to change the amplifier first. In the end, the Devialet 220pro was the best fit compared to the existing and other setups. Results: - current setup enabled a new experience of my music collection - reduced # of boxes and associated cabling
