  1. I don't use BitPerfect any more, but received a mailing this morning they've updated the app for Catalina Music app compatibility
  2. I am disappointed at this - I would have thought the 24/96 download (for me, from Qobuz) would be the same as the stereo content available on the Blu-Ray, but it's not. Comparison of "Come Together" - left is the download from Qobuz, right is ripped from the Blu-Ray:
  3. VERY informative. As I commented on one of your earlier reviews, I love your inclusion of the binaural recordings, which makes it much easier to put your remarks in context and "hear it for myself". Kudos.
  4. You must have missed the front page article that already has several pages of discussion
  5. Even with the visual arts, we have different tastes. For example, like many others here, I'm a digital photographer. My taste in processing is ALWAYS skewed to "realistic", or what to me looks realistic Some of my friends, though, really like heavily HDR-processed looks, or even those horrid Instagram-style filters. Similar thing with sound profiles, for both headphones and speakers. With speakers, I tend to like a light, clear, fast sound - so much so that many audiophile speakers (e.g., B&W) sound absolutely dreadful to me (WAY too thick and syrupy). For headphones, though, I really like a rich, romantic, warm sound. There's no accounting for taste, I suppose
  6. Very interesting, well-performed and -recorded release from The Boston Camerata: Early American music, showing (of course) very strong influences from European (particularly Celtic) folk music.
  7. Thanks for highlighting this one - a rather uncommon approach, but particularly involving.
  8. Excellent new "Zauberflöte" from Nèzet-Séguin: Also on sale on Qobuz for an incredible price ($8.99 for those on the Sublime+ plan): https://www.qobuz.com/us-en/album/mozart-die-zauberflote-yannick-nezet-seguin-aurelius-sangerknaben-calw-claudia-huckle-corinna-scheurle-johanni-van-oostrum-douglas-williams-rias-kammerchor-chamber-orchestra-of-europe-clara-andrada-de-la-calle-jory-vinikour-justin-doyle-christiane-karg-albina-shagim/mwvxw92vhjn0b?qref=dpa
  9. I've loved all of his recent releases. This one is great
  10. Interesting new collection of Tchaikovsky orchestral works - "The Tchaikovsky Project" (Czech Philharmonic, Bychkov; Gerstein, piano) Perhaps not the ultimate in performance, but excellent sound quality and very enjoyable. Also very good value - less than $30 US at Qobuz with Sublime+: https://www.qobuz.com/us-en/album/the-tchaikovsky-project-complete-symphonies-orchestral-works-complete-piano-concertos-semyon-bychkov-kirill-gerstein-czech-philharmonic/th51mg8it38ta
  11. Mac Mini (Late 2014), Intel Core i7, 3 GHz, 16 GB. I'm also thinking about updating to a current Mini - current server will upsample to DSD512 via Roon or DSD256 via HQPlayer - I'd really like to get to DSD512 via HQPlayer, as I think it sounds just THAT much better than Roon
  12. I have a 5.1 system with 4 of these, a matching center, and an (ancient) M+K sub. Sounds wonderful
  13. I can't see 3D, either I may just be too "literal" in my thinking and sensing.
