Who has tried "TIDAL" vs other streaming applications?
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...

Hi,Adjusting the equalizer in J-River did the trick, many thanks! At some point I think I would like to invest in a new headphone amp, with the Quicksilver high on my list.Happy listening!

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... 
Streaming for beginner
mbiondo,You mentioned you have WiFi, will you have the ability to connect via Ethernet? I have my streamer connected directly to my Gateway by way of a CAT7 cable, no issues at all. I have heard, but not experienced problems with WiFi and 24/192 g... 
Streaming for beginner
Hi,Sounds like with the optional network card you should be all set. For achieving the best SQ you may choose to try Qobuz or Tidal, remember Tidal utilizes MQA for hi-res playback, be sure your streamer supports it.For myself, I tried Tidal for a...

Hi stringreen,Thanks for the tip regarding the Grado! I myself prefer over the ear phones. I tried a nice set of Cardas in ear phones and found them to be a bit heavy and not quite as comfortable as over the ear phones. What I like about the HD600...

arafiq, thank you! I looked at the QS on-line and it is one impressive looking amp. I need to research where to obtain one where I can "buy and try", just in case it does not work out for me. Is there any low level buzz from the tubes? Also, I not...

stringreen, thanks! I did not consider a different set of phones, I tried a friends set of Cardas in-ear phones and there was more bass but they did not have near the clarity of my HD600's.So, what this tells me is exactly what you observed, at th...
