  1. What are some of the best sounding choral recordings out there (CD, SACD/DSD or download), with or without music instrument accompaniment? I'm especially interested in recordings that were performed in buildings like cathedrals.
  2. While I have no doubt about the audio quality of Linn Records CDs, SACDs and downloads, may I please ask about the audio quality of any of the 10 Linn Records Super Audio Compact Disc Samplers? I have read that they are a mix of mainly jazz and classical/orchestral selections from some of their albums/discs. Thank you....
  3. Have any of you had any experiences with either the Luxman DA-06 ($4,995), DA-250 ($2,895), or DA-150 ($1,995) DACs? If so, how would you say they compare to other comparably-priced DACs? The 250 and the 150 are also headphone amps, while the 06 lacks a headphone amp. I know Chris did a great review of the DA-06 a few years back.
  4. Here's a question for all -- how often have you found yourself upgrading from one DAC to a new DAC for any reason whatsoever?
  5. This sounds good, as I have two Oyen MiniPro 1TB HDDs - both 6 years old and still going strong!
  6. Well, an external SSD would be an option to consider. I can always consider that at a later time and use it with my 2014 Mac Mini. I wonder if anyone here has a 2014 Mini and if they use an ext. SSD? The only reason I mention all the Shunyata stuff is because they are all I need to finally get my system up and running/burned in optimally.
  7. Good thing I already got the 2014 mac Mini with 1TB HDD. There is no way in Hell that I am going to pay $2,399 for a 2TB SSD version (aka the new Mini that starts at $799)!!!!! A good $1700 to $2000 would be better spent (and will soon) on a Shunyata Venom PS8 power conditioner with Venom Defender, a Shunyata Delta NR power cable, and the set of 4 iso feet (Shunyata) designed for Venom or Hydra power cond./distrib. They weren't kidding that the new mac Minis would be purely professional applications!!
  8. Just curious -- is it possible to click/drag/drop all music/metadata data from off of one external HDD directly into another external HDD if both HDDs were connected to one's main computer? No biggie if you can't.........
  9. Hi Teresa, Thanks for sharing with us! It's always so cool to hear from you! ?
  10. That looks like quite a set up! Glad you got to tell me how "awesome" (true 80s lingo) this SACD sounds. I still haven't got a hold of this SACD yet, but will try soon.
  11. First I just want to mention that I received my 2014 Mac Mini two weeks ago. Last week, at the Genius Bar (I do not have broadband internet where I live yet), I had my Mac Mini's OSX upgraded to the most up-to-date High Sierra, and today I upgraded the most recent iTunes into my Mac Mini. Sometime in the next few weeks I will be having Spectrum Broadband installed where I live. Once I do, I can start the free 15 day trial of Audirvana Plus -- and I have a great feeling that I will want to stick to Audirvana Plus. My question is this -- does having iTunes factor in in any way to Audirvana
  12. Oh, this CIA torture playlist is nothing. Wanna know what's worse than this playlist? My singing! My singing is so bad, I couldn't carry a note in a pail. So, the CIA recently hired me to (gasp!) sing at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Once I start singing, terrorists will start talking pronto!!!! Hee Hee!
  13. Does anyone on the CA forum have this Sony SACD called 80's Hits? It contains the following: 1. Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley 2. I Wanna Dance With Somebody - Whitney Houston 3. Caribbean Queen (No More Love on the Run) - Billy Ocean 4. Girls Just Want To Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper 5. Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) - Eurythmics 6. Wake Me Up Before You Go Go - Wham! 7. Jump (For My Love) - The Pointer Sisters 8. Eye Of The Tiger - Survivor 9. Africa - Toto 10. 99 Red Balloons - Nena 11. Manic Monday - The Bangles 12. Wishing Well - Terence Trant Dar
