  7. Sorry - didn't mean that (for example) I found that it caught fire! They are expensive computers and, in the old days, Apple's value proposition was that they always worked and weren't buggy like Windows boxes.
  8. The points being described here in respect to the Music program are what's wrong. Missing artwork. Blank pages. Etc. Apples are very expensive and are supposed to just work. The new M1 Mac mini just doesn't. To me there is no point in paying a premium price for something that does not satisfy and has unfixed bugs that a child would have noticed during checkout.
  9. I should mention that I sent the POS Mac Mini with the M1 chip back for a refund. JUNK!
  10. True. I never encountered vanishing artwork with iTunes. Once you put it in there, it stayed. Another example; if I rip a CD (store bought - not one of my own burns), the Recently Added page goes blank. Exiting and then restarting Music clears this and the Recently Added page shows all the more recently added music. This seems to be another known issue that Apple can't be bothered fixing. How they missed it in the first place is a mystery - it's not exactly subtle.
  11. Apple Music (the successor to iTunes) has NOT solved the problem. I bought a new Mac Mini with the M1 chip and I found that the artwork for dozens of albums was missing. All artwork was present in iTunes. No particular pattern as to which album artwork is missing: purchased downloads/CD rips/his res/low res etc.
  12. I keep my music library in iTunes in ALAC format - is there an easy way to export an iTunes playlist to a folder (on a thumb drive) in MP3 or FLAC format? Something analogous to the iTunes command to Burn Playlist to Disc perhaps. I know I could just convert the albums 1 at a time but I'm hoping there is something less labor intensive. I don't want to convert the iTunes library itself - just make copies in MP3 format of 1 or 2 playlists. Why? If Covid goes away, we might get a chance to spend some time with friends on a boat but the sound syste
  13. Would be good news - anything that gets genuinely high quality audio out can't be bad. I personally don't have Apple Music mainly because there has been no "Hi-FI" option.
  14. Radio Paradise is a fantastic "station". I've been listening for several years now and my musical horizons have broadened considerably in that time. It always astonishes me how many great bands are out there that I would not have even heard of without Radio Paradise. I love what Bill and Rebecca are doing. I hear more new music on RP in an hour than I would in a month of algorithm driven playlists on Pandora, Roon etc. p.s. If you like what you hear, become a member.
