    I run the stereo on Tuesday and Friday night, and listen to downloaded files, or ripped CDs. For the last year or so I have been on a Metal spree, and buy 2-3 downloads from HDTracks each week. At 71 I wonder when I will get tired of music, but...

    Just want to say thank you to Magico. My S5 speakers are now 2-3 years old, and I have zero desire to change them. They sound fantastic, and the style/color fits perfectly in my living room. Good job. Thank you.

    Not sure what the problem is here. Is the reason the files arenít in order is because the ripping software is incorrect?

    Okay. Might be a U1 Mini bug. My X1 is at 7.0, and tracks are in order. Let me get a new download from HDTracks and recheck it. However, I play everything with random shuffle so I wouldnít notice it unless I actually looked at the playlist.

    I loved Pink Floyd in the 70s, and probably still do. Saw them in MD in 74/75, forgot exactly when. Reading this thread made me nostalgic, so I checked HDTracks for downloads. Unfortunately, none of their albums are available.
