    Re: MAGICO M9’s

    One would think that when doing the R&D into the speaker, the manufacturer determined the best speaker cable for this speaker and is including it with the price. [emoji33]

    Re: CD Transports: End of an era

    Buying high def downloads… that is another method that saw its peak a few years ago and that now has become less appealing. I personally have not bought a high def download in several years.

    CD Transports: End of an era

    Agree that there are SOME people (not necessarily a LOT) who still want that.

    Sounds like the Cadillac car dilemma that GM faced when they realized that they had to do an overhaul of the product...
  5. What Will Happen to My Music Library When Streaming Dies?

    So… how do you make a playlist from the LPs and CDs that you own?

    Agree. I have no desire or need for having physical copies of my entire musical library. The convenience of streaming and ease of creating my own playlists more than makes up for the potential of...

    CD Transports: End of an era

    CD players, CD Transports… take a hint guys… if leaders in the field are letting go of them, that should send everyone a signal! They are the new cassette players!!!
  8. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    Glad you are enjoying it!
    Your experience with ripped CDs surmises why CD players and transports are being phased out (disclosure: I have not played my CD player since before the pandemic!)

    I’m afraid your conclusion is correct. And while there are very good A/V processors out there that give you lots of flexibility (including DSP room correction) they only work with digital sources....

  12. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    If the external hard drive is connected directly to the Nucleus via USB cable, there is no need to map the drive.

    Step-by-Step
    1. Make sure the Nucleus and the external hard drive are turned...
  13. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    @bluegrassphile, did you buy the Nucleus from a dealer? If you did so, your dealer might be able to assist you.
  14. Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    If you do not have a hard drive installed in the Nucleus, you cannot transfer any files to it!

    You do NOT need your PC and you do not need to transfer any files!

    Just connect the external hard...

    When you think about it, you typically have to pay for software upgrades.
    I recently upgraded to Adobe Photoshop latest version from an older version. They gave me a discount, but I still had to pay...
  17. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    A USB 16 feet cable is fairly long. You are reaching the limits of what is recommended. If you connect the external drive to the nucleus, you can have them side by side and use a very short USB...
  18. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    Try connecting the Nucleus directly to the external drive via the USB cable.

    Then open Roon Settings and under storage, check if you can now see the folders from your external hard drive. If it...
  19. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    Let me see if I understand:
    1. Your computer is connected to the Nucleus.
    2. Your computer has a folder that contains all of your music files.

    If both of those are correct, then your next step...
  20. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    Exactly. You have two ways of doing this.

    1. Connecting the Nucleus to your computer, OR
    2. Connecting the Nucleus to the external hard drive.

    After you choose one of the above, in Roon, you...
  21. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    You need a USB cable with Type A on one end and Type B on the other.
    You connect the Type B end to the hard drive and the Type A to the Nucleus. No need for USB hubs. Then in Roon, you need to...

    There is no need to transfer the ripped files from the external hard drive to the Nucleus. Just connect the Nucleus to the external hard drive with a USB cable. Any well-built USB cable should work....
