  1. Great food for thought. But if a 27 minute tape was the standard high-end music offering at the time (was it?) shouldn't we use the full inflation adjusted price of $94.16 per album (instead of cutting it in half) as representative of how a high-end album in 1956 compares to today's high-end offering (even though the music plays longer today) in terms of price? Today seems a much better bargain price-wise.
  2. I bought Harvest and After the Gold Rush and they are a definite improvement over the redbook cd and vinyl I have. I'll be buying more but wish a coupon would drop down in my lap somehow.
  3. Has anyone ordered and listened to Harvest and After the Gold Rush in Hi Res? Wow, I am very, very tempted to buy those two great albums.
  4. Just a quick look on Amazon and it seems the Blu-spec CDs are significantly more expensive than the 24/192 download. Is it having the physical media that makes them attractive?
  5. I was able to get Tidal working through PM 2.02 in Playthrough mode but it crashes after about 15-20 minutes each time I try it (which were many). I've contacted PM support but until I hear something, I'm done with the play-crash-restart PM routine. I've been playing the desktop app through my mac mini/ Directstream setup.
  6. Has anyone tried Tidal through Pure Music 2's Playthrough feature?
  7. I sent an email to Tidal support just before I brought it up here. I just heard back from Colin at Tidal telling me it was a system problem that was now fixed and that I should restart and try it again. Sure enough I'm back up and running with the desktop app on my mac through my dac. I'm impressed with the quick turnaround to my problem. Nice job Tidal! Music is sounding great again!
  8. Guess I should add I was playing using the mac app on my mini and my dac
  9. I signed up today and was really enjoying the sound earlier this morning. Now I'm stuck with no sound and the message at the top of the screen of "Track not valid" each time I select something to play. Has anyone else had this happen and were you able to get the music to start again?
  10. Except I'm only registered here in Los Angeles with no UK server account so my country of service is the US and I received the email also.
  11. I sent the email to Qobuz yesterday morning and received this reply... Hello, Qobuz open to international but not in your country. Only UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, NL, Belgie, Luxembourg & Irland. Qobuz is really sorry because you received our message.. Our International developpement grow up and your country will be open soon. So it looks like a false alarm so far...
  12. Hmmm... Did Bruce Brown have a direct comment about the DS? Full disclosure. I like my DS a lot!
