Disturbed "Blue on Black" 
Takedown of pricey servers, streamers OCD HiFi guy
I was ripping and streaming on a core duo with 8 gigs of ram about 16 years ago.So let me see if I get this right.  Computer grung is real but no one seems to be addressing it.  The most important part of this process is ripping.  The reason we us...

@mikepowellaudio thank you for your response. 
If you had access to a time machine, what concerts would you go back to see?
The year was 1984.  Dan Fogelberg "Solo Acoustical Tour"  Him a grand piano and 6 guitars.  Maybe the best 3 hours ever spent.  Although Elton John was pretty good. 
Is it worth upsampling with dBpoweramp
@mapman  thank you.  I have about 1k cds ripped in FLAC.  But the hard drives are no more.  :(  This time I will be ripping to my main storage server that is backed up in the cloud (Crashplan Pro).  So since my TriVista upscales on the fly and onl...

@larsman, It's funny when I read people saying on other threads that analog is better than digital because analog is not compressed and digital is! The base frequencies are compressed on vinyl other wise the grooves would be huge.

@artemus_5 I am in the AA chatroom right now after a long absence.  Getting abused as usual.

@jbhiller Thank you,  we should know on the TriVista in a few weeks.  As for the technology I have also been retired for 10 years (Telecommunications Digital Switch Engineer) it is mind blowing how fast things are advancing now.  Also in need of s... 
Musical Fidelity A5, Simaudio I-5 or Krell s300i
@tls49 Agree with the A308 integrated.  Mine is in California hopefully getting the volume rheostat replaced.  It has a few scratchy spots.  49 AMPS of instantaneous peak current.  At 120 watts it is a beast.  The sound is beautiful.  I have had m...
