  1. @oso :#645 agree Tom Waits version 'different'/better than Holly Cole-but will have to listen to more of her and agree Frank's Wild Years one Waits best one of favorites of his
  2. can you reuse 'clean sweeps' for any audiophile purpose
  3. @The Computer Audiophile @jcn3 Have had the Yggy GS and Rggy 2 since Tuesday with the Legacy monitors The DAC is gen 5 USB and is everything you said Chris-thank you! The amp is everything all reviews and everyone here and elsewhere said it was and it is just an amazing headphone amp just unbelievable 'blackness', separation, clarity, SQ am hearing instruments vocals like never before even using Sennheiser RS-195s and by using digital optical out from my cable box into the DAC it decodes the audio stereo signal as well as the audio signal from my gen3 Apple TV. And using RCA out from my ancient cd/sacd/dvd-a/dvd to RCA on amp it plays downsampled sacd/dvd-a! And I can compare DACs with RCA out from ME2 to the amp. The speakers are just the best I have ever owned. Thank you both for your help and you Chris and others of reviews of the equipment I settled on-am truly impressed and happy.
  4. @dmackta @rickca @Forehaven never received that email just went to my account and signed up essentially cost me 137$ which is about 11.42$/month so about 46% price reduction from the 25$/month i was paying not bad at all and better than reduction in price i think than the yearly TIDAL offering great job qobuz
  5. @dmackta like @rickca I haven't received an email about this new pricing system(BRAVO! for it) and I have had Qobuz since it became available and also had a France address/account for years( with an address of Oneida,New France no less-this is what the Northeast USA would have been called if the French had won on the Plains of Abraham!!--always thought this was pretty cheeky of you)
  6. @dmackta @The Computer Audiophile if I am currently and always have been in one form or another a HIFI/Premier or whatever it's called subscriber(MONTHLY) since I will automatically get the lower monthly charge can I switch to yearly/annual subscription and how do I do that exactly? thanks(already did that with TIDAL__nice job Qobuz!)

  8. @AudioDoctor agree with your progression/?regression my local files are all Apple Lossless ALAC/AIFF. About 800 CD's some in DVD-A ripped va DVD-A Extractor now reside whatever iTunes is now but have all been transferred to TIDAL and Qobuz and in turn to ROON and Audirvana 3+/ 3.5. My 'subjective' feeling is the original CD's SACD's and DVD-A's all just 'sound better'. I have gone from listening using nothing to 'upgrade' the SQ except my AVR then first modi/magni to gungnir SD/AQDFRed/ME2 to my 'last rodeo' a Yggy GS and Rggy 2 with Legacy Audio Studio HD monitors and my same old Sennheiser 598HD's and RS-195's cans No doubt in my mind the 'originals'(local files so to speak) played through my old 2005 Yamaha 5 disc CD/SACD/DVD-A/CD changer via RCA to the new amp RCAs are subjectively 'better' BUT when those 'originals' are played via USB from either TIDAL/Qobuz or via ROON/Audirvana through the DAC(MB GEN5) are pretty spectacular especially with either of those headphones-- that Schiit amp is a fantastic headphone amp-- the separation, SQ ,bass, 'blackness', definition of instruments drums and vocals is like nothing I ever experienced. I agree offerings from Qobuz sound superior and playing through ROON is good but A+3.5 is even better overall regardless of what I am listening to. Those small 32# Studio monitors sound unbelievable also are no slouches. bobbmd
  9. @Rusde 'the complete guide to high end audio' by robert harley- i have the 5th edition might be a newer one

  12. @janissiksna try Legacy Audio springfield illinois--just got a pair of Studio HD monitors just phenomenal small hand made and made to order for you 1799$ and the dealer will discount them mine gave me 200$ covered nys tax and agree with @esldude upgrade mated mine with Schiit yaggorrsil gs DAC and ragnaark amp
  13. JPlissken go to the Schiit Audio site they have some new 'schiit' for gamers not for headphones or try HeadFi.org under the thread "Schiit Happened... the story of the most improbable start up" or The HEADPHONE community
  14. @bgentry i realize this an old topic but i have used until recently a pair of cambridge soundworks (henry kloss's last company) ensembles and s-300 satellites(tripole= dipole/direct/bipole both 'soft'- easy to listen to especially the s-300s and readily found on ebay and other sources very inexpensive great build and design have a pair of each with passive/slave subwoofers if interested
  15. @audiobomber i fully understand the discussion i find the tone to be offensive and i will use any kind of punctuation i want just read it slowly and digest it i was quite clear you and a lot of other people are just smart ass bullies let mr waldrep have his his test be done with it YOU belittled him(and the rest of us with some of your comments and that is just my opinion and i have every right to feel that way) don't bother to respond i am finished with this idiotic stuff and GET OVER IT
