    OK, I found the solution. I ran the Clean Scan in the Conductor app and retrieved all of the artwork back.

    After the Aurender update, I lost most of the album artwork thumbnails in the Conductor app. I have the latest version of the Conductor app installed. How do I get them back?

    I have a little over 150 hours on the 735s and I'm totally happy with the change, even if nothing improved from this point. Due to the price difference, I think it's silly to compare the 735s to the 625 S2. That being said, overall I'm beyond...

    It sounds like Roon was used on the Taiko. However, the Taiko player is reported to sound much batter than Roon. Innuous now has their own player as well and it is also supposed to sound much batter than Roon. Aurender has always had their own app.

    DTOSM is the 2011 version (better than the stereo tracks of the 2003 SACD.) WYWH is a new transfer and mastering (clearly different from the 2011 BD and the SACD), though I'm not sure it is better.

    Listened to the new 24/96 DSOTM this afternoon via Qobuz. It is good but not better than my SACD rip. Not sure I would miss the RIP if I didn’t have it. The quality of streaming has come a long way.
