Streaming Spotify vs Tidal
Thanks to all for the constructive feedback. In the end I kept them both, each has their strong points. For my main system, I love Tidal. For everything/everyone else, Spotify.  
Streaming Spotify vs Tidal
Hi and thanks for the responses. I have loaded Tidal on my phone and HT systems as well as my main rig for a number of days now, comparing it side by side with Spotify. What I discovered first is the SQ of Tidal way outshines Spotify. What I also ... 
Streaming Spotify vs Tidal
Wow, Installed Tidal on my phone and PC as well as my HT systems. I realized an immediate improvement in SQ as I bounced back and forth between the two apps and Tidal was a significant upgrade to my main system. Thanks to all who posted with thei... 
Streaming Spotify vs Tidal
Just reread my above post, I need to clarify, sorry. I would keep Spotify and subscribe to Qobuz or Tidal for my main system only, if that makes more sense.  
Streaming Spotify vs Tidal
Thanks for the feedback everyone. I think for onĀ  the go audio and my HT systems, I'll stick with Spotify, it works great and is feature rich. For my main system, I do have a small collection of DSD downloaded albums that I send to my streamer via...

Wow!Almost five years since this, my first post to Audiogon, hard to believe! Much has changed since then. I have graduated from College and found a career in alignment with my degree as a R&D Scientist working for an Automotive company. My au...

russashe,The bass through my HD600's is light on everything. Through my main speakers everything is fine and it's not just the Floyd recording.I have printed out your navigation instructions for J-River, I really like the app and what it can do. I...

russashe,The HD600's are wired correctly, the connectors on them are keyed in a way, one large and one small pin on each connector, you would have to use quite a bit of force to wire them out of phase.I have fumbled a bit with J-River and am conce...

I currently do not have Roon. I have heard quite a bit about Roon, but never researched it and am not sure what it is/does? I do play back my hi-res download files from my PC using an app called J-River Media Center. Right now I have J-River confi... 
Question about length of SPDIF COAX interface cable length
Hi kijanki, thanks for your kind assistance. In another room of my home where my Home Theater setup is located, I have connected the output from my DAC in my main system to the HT system DAC input. Using some return air ducts I got lucky and was a... 
Question about length of SPDIF COAX interface cable length
Hi,Not sure why this is the case, but I spent quite some time switching between my 8" cable and 1.5M cable. For some reason, I am finding myself preferring the sound of the 1.5M cable, where the 8" cable seems to sound a bit too bright. 
Question about length of SPDIF COAX interface cable length
kijanki,Thank you for the detailed response. I was surprised that there did seem to be a perceptible difference between the two cables, I settled on the 8 inch cable. I too was under the impression that the 1.5 meter cable was the correct length t...

Hi,My main system Amp has no pre-outs or tape loop, but I think it's possible to convert one of it's single ended inputs to something called pass-through for HT use, whatever that means?? Right now my streamer has two outputs, one balanced going d...
