  1. Re: What Will Happen to My Music Library When Streaming Dies?

    That certainly should be the case if the rip was perfect (bit count matches internet-accessed statistics) and you rip to WAV or FLAC. The theory is that a CDP picks up the data from the disc in real...
  2. Re: What Will Happen to My Music Library When Streaming Dies?

    [QUOTE=Mike;332573]Radio is very different from the end user who plays the same song 1000 times because itís in his play list.

    Not sure that one user playing a song 1000 times is any more liable...
  3. Re: What Will Happen to My Music Library When Streaming Dies?

    Not sure I understand the point here. "My" music library is my own hard drive containing my ripped CDs and I can surely keep that ad infinitum.

    If I subscribe to Spotify or Tidal, etc, I am not...
  4. Re: Hardware for Adjusting the Center Image in Stereo

    Interesting notion. If the music is "good" then why not play it as it is? Or do you want to attempt a better job than the mixing engineer? He had the advantage of multiple tracks to create the...
  5. Re: Hardware for Adjusting the Center Image in Stereo

    All electronic processing will degrade the signal to some extent so best to avoud such things as tone control, equalisers, even DSP if you can. Best stereo imaging (close your eyes and you can point...
  6. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    I'm very happy to hear you've resolved the problem and you now have your ripped CDs on the Roon. Happy listening. Peter
  7. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    I hope that nicoff or Randy can help you resolve the problem. You really need help from someone who also uses an iPad so they can "talk you through" the process step by step.

    If you had a...
  8. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    Please re-read my previous post. Your Glyph doesn't need 2 USB sockets. Only your PC needs 2. Connect Glyph to the PC and the Nucleus to the PC and off you go following previous detailed advice. ...
  9. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    You said earlier that all your CDs were on the PC and the Glyph. Is this correct? If so, you don't need to connect the Glyph to the PC. Your PC has how many (flat type) USB sockets? Most have at...
  10. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    Essentially no. Your system will use the fastest USB protocol it can, but it caters for the slowest individual component or link. Use 3.0 cables if you have them but any ones will do. Transfter...
  11. Re: Transferring Ripped CDs From An External HD To Roon Nucleus

    I've returned my loan Nucleus, but I imagine the easiest method is to connect your Glyph hard drive (I have one too) to your Windows PC via a USB cable. Likewise connect Nucleus to PC via USB. Your...
  12. Re: Anyone own KEF Blades - either version? Thoughts?

    Hi Jim
    Yes, totally agree about the goosebump (ME) factor. I used Avantgarde Unos for 17 years before deciding it was time for an upgrade. I had Blades on my shortlist (I used to have KEF...

    Re: Nad m33

    I'm sorry I can't help with that as the M33 is an integrated and in fact I've never owned a tube preamp. NAD do a power amp (C289) that has the Purifi module and is very well priced I believe. I...

    Re: Nad m33

    I bought my M33 after auditioing a dozen amps at home over the previous 2 years or so. In fact I chose the earlier M32 as the M33 hadn't been released but overall the M32 was my choice. The M33 is...

    Re: A Guide to Lossless Streaming - WSJ

    I wish they wouldn't call CD quality 44.1 music Hi Res. To me CD quality is standard and MP3, or anything less than 44.1 is sub-standard, lossy, whatever you like to call it. Hi Res is better than...

    Re: HiFi Rose RS150 Network Streamer Review

    The guy at the showroom today was using HiFi Rose's own app for control of Tidal, so that should be as good as anything - perhaps? The app appeared quite intuitive on an iPad. He said he controlled...

    Re: HiFi Rose RS150 Network Streamer Review

    By coincidence I visited a showroom today on my way back from a visit to my brother's. They pointed me towards their demo Rose RS-150. It looked pretty impressive and I'll probably borrow it for a...

    Re: Bakoon 13r amazing little amp.

    I had the Bakoon 13r on loan for a week or so, powering my Avantgarde speakers. My thoughts were that it sounded pretty good but I didn't like the rear panel sockets (should be ďpaired") and I...

    In view of Roonís apparent intransigence in granting licenses for many streamers(*), do we not think that Roon may soon have a major rival? Perhaps a system that doesnít rely on a dedicated PC in...

    Re: Hegel H390 Integrated Amplifier Review

    I believe it's a great all-in-one amp. Perhaps I'll borrow a demo unit and compare with my NAD M33 soon. At $10K, that's a big mark up for the US market. It lists here in the UK at £5000 including...

  24. Re: Comparing Qobuz and Tidal, what are your experiences?

    No. I thought my description was clear. The screenshot shows (in response to ezzigy's post) what is offered by Qobuz if you use the BluOS app (Bluesound / NAD) instead of Qobuz's own app. ...
