Any Mark Knopfler fans out there?
@tomcarr I think I mention the production quality back in the original post, but yes he and DS have a number of songs that are great for experiencing how good your system sounds. You and Your Friends is a great one for that. @dpop He does seem to... 
Whats playing on your system today?
Khruangbin (Texas psychedelic Thai funk) + Leon Bridges (Texas R&B) = Texas magic. This one is moody, sad, ambient gold on a good system.     Mariella

"Discover Weekly" still has not popped up on my Spotify app. There are lots of other categories for looking for new music but I can't find that particular one.

Yes, it makes sense and for some reason I have not used the "Got to Artist" function in Qobuz but I will certainly check it out now. Thanks!

@dancub Can you explain what you mean by: Now it's"   Radio Paradise => Qobuz => "Go to Artist" => "Similar Artists" and you're off on an adventure.    Sorry to be so dense. Does this mean you start in Qobuz? @2channel8  I will check ...

Several people have mentioned the various "what are you listening to" threads here on Audiogon. I used to frequent those threads and over the last few years I have been turned onto some artists that I remain really fond of. However, what you most...

@tyray I live in the Charlotte, NC radio market. And much like Charlotte itself, the radio offerings are pretty cookie cutter. In fact, its a wasteland. At least in terms of rock/indie etc. I don't know about jazz. I still scan the channels in the...

@curiousjim I would have taken the risk on that box of CDs too! @jbhiller I am a CD guy. I've got some vinyl but not much. My typical process is to find stuff I like and then buy it on CD. I've slowed down on that a little but if its something re...

Got it. That makes sense. I'll spend some time with Spotify, as I have been this evening. It makes it MUCH easier to browse for new music than Qobuz or even Amazon Music as it is already showing suggestions of bands similar to the ones I just list...

Okay, I’ve got Spotify, the free version. Like it so far. I like Radio Paradise a lot too. Now for some tech questions with these: 1) I do not see Spotify Discover Weekly. Either it is staring me in the face or it must be only with a paid subsc...

I tried to listen to Amused to Death once. I think Waters is a genius. I also think he is a sanctimonious a$$. That part seemed to show through on this one. I couldn’t get through it. I need to give it another try I suppose. I do like QSound. I t...

@aewarren Yes, I have a lot of great recorded music in my collection. And I do play a lot of it, well, a lot. But to me, that rarely represents a discovery or broadens my horizon any further than that music already has.   @mahgister I used to su...

@reubent Enjoying listening to Radio Paradise already. @jim5559 I listen to live music whenever I can. Including rock. And I have impeccable taste. 😎

@reubent What is this internet you speak of? I can certainly check out Spotify but Radio Paradise sounds more my speed.

I do not have Spotify. I used to rely on radio too. But it is pretty stagnant in this radio market. Have not explored internet radio much. @danager What got me thinking about this is my wife and I just watched a movie called High Fidelity with J...
