  1. Nikhil: The Tidal links are especially useful. Thanks, Mike
  2. dieterjp: Would you please spell out the artist's and album's names? Perhaps it's my old eyes, but I cannot make out the text on the photo... Thanks, Mike
  3. Nikhil: Thanks for the source link, too. Mike
  4. sphinxsix: Thanks. This was the one that I could find easily. 8^) Mike
  5. Folks: Just a procedural suggestion: Please include a link or source annotation so that readers can find your wonderful music. For example, on this page, there are three submissions, two of which don't show up in a couple of searches through retail music sites and aren't available on Tidal. I understand that if I keep searching, I will (probably) find them but you already have a viable source. Please save me some time. Life is short and I spend too much time screwing around on the web as it is. Thanks, Mike
  6. Okay, I'm now talking with some Allo folks. Hopefully I will see progress soon... Thanks, Mike
  7. So this is it? Allo's customer service is totally absent... Long live e-commerce. Mike
  8. Folks: I have an Allo DigiOne Signature (UpTone Audio UltraCap LPS 1.2 in clean power port and the Allo dirty power supply in the dirty port) hooked up to my sound system through a Schiit BiFrost (with all upgrades). When I log into Volumio, I see Volumio running Tidal through Roon and it appears that the sound is getting to the Signature but nothing to my amp/speakers. Obviously, I have done something (or not done something) during the setup that needs attention. I cannot find coherent instructions or a guide that will allow me to proceed. I am VERY open to suggestions since I have been screwing around with this for a couple of months now and have made NO progress. Please advise me on how to proceed. Thanks, Mike
  9. I'm sticking with Tidal. It has performed very well for me. Several years ago I had a subscription to Qobuz, which was having some serious technical issues maintaining a connection. After a couple of interactions trying to get them to address my connection issues, Qobuz just dropped me even though I had just paid my month's subscription fee. So without any technical support for their on-again-off-again streaming service, Qobuz just went silent, ignoring me and keeping the money. I was not happy... I can tolerate start-up technical kinks but not terrible customer support. Just sayin... Mike
  10. Bluesman: Wow, what a cogent effort! Thanks, Mike
  11. The “easy” characterization is ambiguous for me. I find that predictable/repetitive gets old in a hurry. For example, I find that Tord Gustafsen does some very interesting stuff which is not obvious or repetitive yet neither is it simple(easy?). Sometimes easy is very good indeed, e.g., Kind of Blue. Didn't Miles say that less is more?
  12. IF the decision is made to have moderators, I suggest a list of qualities that we would like to see in our discussions as well as a list of community values. These could be nominated and discussed (probably not without some discord) and then have every member re-join CA and agree to adhere to the values and qualities. Finally I would suggest procedures for administering the moderating, such as, either a moderator or a member who feels that a post violates a quality or value can initiate a private response to the poster indicating what/where and have the original respond/clarify his/her intent. This kind of open-minded intervention can be tracked through a member database and it will become clear if someone is discordant. The moderator (perhaps with Chris’ cuncurance) gives that individual a “time-out” for a short period of time. Then three strikes and a longer period of posting banishment followed by permanent site exile. Moderating is dangerous and I would like to believe that (IF that is decided) we could make it less onerous all around with some civilized, out-of-the-spotlight small conversations with the moderator as an anonymizer who links specific qualities/values we all agreed to at the outset. Vive les differences (mais doucement)! Mike
  13. I would prefer to let Chris handle such issues. Mike
