Amazon just killed Tidal
Sorry I am raining on your parade where you declared Tidal dead. I guess the only people allowed to comment are those who agree with you initial assertion.

Also, I don't know where you are getting 10 million. Every article I read just says "millions" which is the same language Qobuz uses. And Qobuz has 40 million in CD quality. Are you sure you don't work for Amazon? Seem like a fanboy without being ...

Seems like it matters which 10 million tracks those are?

How is it a game changer vs Tidal and Qobuz? 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I’ve heard the Focal and Wilson, and personally I’d take the Focal by a mile. In particular the Wilson sounded analytical and lacked bass.  
Worth pursuing analog sound from digital?
So what you’re saying is, you don’t have a turn table to compare with, so you’ll just assume your DAC setup is better. Got it. Im sure glad you told us that story about how awesome your class D amp is though.  
Worth pursuing analog sound from digital?
Everyone here keeps saying that the more expensive (and higher resolution), the closer they get. I have found the exact opposite. On my budget systems ($500 TT, $500 DAC), they sound fairly similar due to limitations in the pre-amp, amp, and speak... 
Phono stage for my system?
Looks like an Ayre just popped up for a great price. https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lis9ejj2-ayre-acoustic-solid-state 
Phono stage for my system?
Listening to the Ayre P-5xe right now. It’s an excellent phono stage. Highly recommended. I’ll be switching to a Boulder 508, but I don’t think it’s going to be a huge difference. This Ayre seems like it punches above its weight class.  
Standmount speakers. I have $5000.
Used B&w 805D3 and a sub can be had for your budget and will be pretty great on the music you listed.  
How good is MSB Discrete Dac?
I’m curious how it compares to the new dCS Bartok if you ever happen to have a chance to hear it.  
Fyne Speakers now in the USA
30k for a 2 way? Curious if anyone has compared to other British speakers like Harbeth 40.2 or B&W 800D3.

Do you guys like Adele's music?
*squinting Fry meme* can’t tell if most here are too old to like anything new or don’t remember singers of their own eras that sounded pretty much the same.  
Thumbs up for ultrasonic record cleaning
Got it. Will do. Was afraid of break such an expensive machine. Overall, though, couldn’t be happier with it. I just can’t believe I waited this long to get one.
