    Re: CD Players On Their Way In Or Out?

    That’s because CD sales have dramatically and drastically dropped, and vinyl’s minor resurgence will soon be over. To be honest, streaming scares me as it is also negatively affecting sales of...

    Re: CD Players On Their Way In Or Out?

    $17,000 for a CD player. Yikes. The Lumin X1 is ‘only’ $12K, and even less when bought from a reputable dealer. :)

    Re: CD Players On Their Way In Or Out?

    Yes, a CD sounds fantastic after it has been ripped and then played on a Lumin X1. Of course, that is just the tip of what can now be done with CD files when they aren’t limited to a CD player.

    Re: CD Players On Their Way In Or Out?

    Yes. If I buy a CD I rip it, and then listen to it.

    Re: Noise Floor

    Okay. Except for number 7, none of the other is in my system. As I mentioned, Shunyata power cords take care of the noise from number 7.

    Re: Noise Floor

    What is digital noise? Are you talking about electrical noise created by digital electronics, or electrical noise created by digital devices (modem, router, etc.).

    Re: Noise Floor

    Which is why Shunyata power cords, and power conditioners, are so effective. They remove both incoming noise on the power line, and remove outgoing noise generated by the gear.

    Re: Possible power outage for next two days

    Mine never went off, but around me it did. I think it is coming back on now. At least that is what I am reading on Nextdoor.

    I suspect this is part of a PG&E strategy to get legislation that...

    Re: Cord Cutting Options

    I was just thinking of this earlier. I pay Comcast $140/month (Internet and TV), while rarely watching TV. Now that I am retired I am getting into the ‘every penny counts’ mode of thinking.

    Yes, it is great you can soon return home. Although this is a subject for another thread, I suspect these fire issues are only going to get worse as the years go by.

    Possible power outage for next two days

    Here in Northern CA it is fire season, and our power company has caused some major fires the last few years. Since they are being sued, and have declared bankruptcy due to those fires they are into...

    Magico is maybe 30 miles from me. While this area does have a good percentage of people with good incomes, I am the only one I know who even has a stereo, let alone Magico speakers. Granted, this...

    Chernobyl series

    The Blu-Ray was released this week, and I just watched episode one. Yikes! What a freaking mess. I had to take a music break, and calm down. Now to watch episode two.

    Re: Magico rack?

    Good post. Thank you.

    I also like the style of not capitalizing the first word of a sentence. With good punctuation, it is easy to read, and certainly easier to type.

    Possibly, but I only use digital now. I quit analog in the early 80s. :)

    Re: Magico rack?

    Maybe, but I will stay with my 400 pound Mapleshade rack. It seems to do a good job of absorbing vibrations, and only cost a few thousand. I forgot the exact amount.

    I need two. One for the stereo, and one for the HT/spare stereo. Maybe next year.

    Re: Lumin Amazon HiRes Audio Streaming

    I agree. Any streaming that uses a generic computer is no better than using it to play ripped files. Basically, it is at the bottom of the audiophile pile.

    It will probably cost a few hundred dollars for the labor side of the repair cost. Add in the part(s) cost and most likely it appears better to scrap it.
