|What happen to MQA on Tidal?|
I believe MQA was developed years ago because internet speeds were too slow to transfer data. This said, should we switch to QOBUZZ. I like the layout of Tidal and I think they have a much larger library. I wonder what percentage of members use...
|Streamer Selection - Thoughts Requested Please! |
I have a BlueSound Node 2i. I tried an inexpensive DAC and found it sounded better without. I really wonder if the sound is significantly better with these expensive streamers? I stream Tidal and since MQA disappeared, I wonder if the old MQA f...

Sounds like you are about to get a stiff neck.
|I have perfected my network for the nth time|
I would be curious if you would hear a difference if blind tested. If I had a $1 million system maybe it would be worth looking into.

What does your equipment list look like?
|the big one: how do you choose speakers? By what features, data?|
What amp will you be driving them with? Do you also plan on keeping your current amp. Also, what is your price range. I would audition them. Make sure you receive an agreement to return at no charge because they will sound different in your ho...
|Was I Expecting Too Much|
Now I know why you don’t see stereo equipment in home listings. He sounds like a dealer. You know they are doing you a favor if they even talk to you. Is there another dealer you can talk to. Perhaps contact the manufacturer and have recommend...
|Accurate and revealing subwoofer |
Nothing is better than a decent size REL. They play like woofers rather than thumping bass.
|MQA Declares Bankruptcy |
Does this mean when streaming Tidal you are no longer listening to hi-res? If not, what resolution are we listening to.
|Is a home theater even worth it or doable?|
How can anyone watch a movie through TV speakers. 80% of a movie experience is surround sound. I would recommend buying an ARCAM surround receiver. If you can afford their G amplifier technology I would do that. First 50 watts is pure Clas...
|MQA Declares Bankruptcy |
I purchased a digital cable and connected my BlueSound Node2i to my ARCAM. They told me the DAC inside my ARCAM was better than the BlueSound and not to worry about MQA. I think MQA sounded better. Maybe I will try QIbuz. I demoed QUobuz and I...
|What's your experience with snooty HiFi salesmen?|
Denver for some reason doesn’t have many audio stores. The nicest one has snobby sales people. They make me feel uncomfortable. I have never purchased anything there as a result. I subscribe to Redfin in order to see what homes are sellin...
|un-becoming an audiophile|
Great post. I have had RedFin send me listings for the past 4 years and I have yet to see a pair of speakers in any room. What amazes me is how much money people in the group spend and how so many are never satisfied. When is enough, enough...
|Rell or JL subwoofer? |
The only Sub to buy is REL. Their high level connection allows them to play like woofers. They need to be set up correctly to achieve this. I purchased 2 REL SHO subwoofers and they were a game changer.
