    Aurender Lite for iPhone

    Aurender Lite for iPhone is available online. Works pretty well. I have difficultly changing between the ACS and N100 - seems stuck on the ACS. So, I had to delete it and choose only the N100 ..

    Re: Audio Memory

    The music I presently enjoy wasnít originally heard using 192KHz/24. I like the original tracks the way I remember them ďback then.Ē For me this is better, this is real quality.
