  1. Hi I listen to a lot of classical music. Especially opera. Is it possible to tell Siri to resume a specific album, like Mozarts Don Gionvanni, after I have stopped playing and even played something else in between? I hope my question makes sense.
  2. I have three locations where I want music available and where the “ultimate” Audio quality is not all that important. In addition the ability to voice control music is of great interest. Voice assistant to other things such as alarms, weather, etc is also important. To that end I have removed the three amazon echo devices and put Apple HomePods in the same places: Office, Master Bedroom, and family room. Note that I am getting more and more concerned about what Amazon and Google do with information gathered by my using their devices. (I am also worried about Kindle but that is another discussion). I got the “space gray” ones as they seem to fade into the environment better. The family room space is at corner of a 20x13 room that is open to the eating area and the kitchen. The bedroom is a much smaller space. And the office is a MESS so I did not take a picture of that!! Setup is “just like” the AirPods. Operation is pretty normal If you are used to Siri and Apple devices. There are folks that have written a lot about the setup and operation. Check out the coverage over at http://imore.com I have the three devices in place and I have 14 days of the normal Apple bring them back for any reason warranty. So this will be a lot of testing and listening over a very short time frame. First Notes: The space that the family room HomePod has to “feed” is just too big for the current location. While the voice assistant can hear me just fine from the kitchen it is too far away for a “good” listening experience. I am going to have to find a different location for testing at least. In the bedroom and the office there are no issues of that sort. I have been able to do some basic listening of a few tracks and conduct some initial testing of Siri. The Amazon Echo seems to have some advantages in the voice assistant things it can do over Siri. That will not be a primary part of what I am talking about but it is important to the overall experience. The overall initial impressions are very favorable (comfortable). I will be setting up Roon to talk to them shortly... 1774A41B-64A4-42CE-9325-2099DC7C302B.MOV
  3. I am concerned that Apple's pushing of Apple music in the HomePod presentation is a sign of worse days ahead for people who store music files locally. Politically speaking, the best way to lobby against this trend at Apple might be to speak on behalf of people with cabins or rural homes that have power but no internet. Or on behalf of the African, Latin American and other cultures whose music from the past 90 years is only sparsely catalogued by Apple Music. Why can't Apple (or someone) come up with a play-only head unit that will run iTunes, iPod style, from (a clone of) an external drive containing the user's library and music files, and be able to control devices like the HomePod via Bluetooth, Lightning or USB 3.1 or C—but using a bare-bones play-only version of iTunes, not iOS Music. The iOS Music app seems hobbled in so many ways, presumably to force people into using web-dependent Apple Music. Anyone with rare, exotic or out-of-fashion music is stuck with Apple Music's boneheaded track and artwork mis-identifications.
  4. Hi All,I am planning on buying HomePod,I was trying to find more information about it online.I found more information in https://devicebase.net/en/product/apple-homepod-speaker/99990090 .However,I would like to know more from your personal experience. Is it better than the Google Home Mini? And is it worth it?Thank you in advance
  5. Hi All, Can Homepod create grouping of speakers to coordinate music beyond room? Someone was talking about it in devicebase.net/en/product/apple-homepod-speaker/99990090 . However,I need an additional idea on this matter.Your input is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
