    Re: Magico S1- MK 2 Review

    I have a dealer who has them and I must admit I spent an inordinate amount of time there, listening to music. Here in France Ayre electronics are being pushed with Magicos because they have the same...

    Re: any one of you visit high end munich 2016?

    We didn't get a proper listening room for ICOS as we hoped, so I'll be there with Antipodes only, not really exhibiting, and hopefully quite available during the whole show. Any get together planned?...

    Re: Roon vs JRiver

    I was shocked at how better Roon sounded than anything else I tried (on Antipodes server). The only downside I see (besides the subscription of course) so far is the fact that it obliges one to use...

    Re: Missing Album Art, MetaData? Try SongKong!

    Besides artwork, I heard it finds tags for untagged music? Does it canonize tags (e.g. David Bowie, Bowie, David and Bowie end up tagged in te same category)? Does it reorganize folders or just tags?...

    Re: So why not the Apple Airport Express?

    Well, the old Apple TV is even less expensive (79$) and does the same -- that is my advice to clients asking for a budget solution, and even my backup when the fancy servers are out: one old Apple TV...

    Re: Lumin M1 Review

    Thank you. It is better than AirPlay. And the machine is getting better by the hour. Now I'm wondering what are appropriate speakers to pair it with.

    I have one right now and I must say it does indeed have a nice subtlety and emotional content, while staying clean, for the price. It reminds me of the NAD systems of my youth -- just engaging,...

    Re: USB Cable: Does it make any difference ?

    It does, in my experience. The best I tried, and now use systematically for shows, is this: artisansilvercables.com/ussusb-double.htm

    Re: AES and DSD

    There is no satisfying way to do DSD over SPDIF or AES. Even DSD over USB is not pure DSD, but is transformed into DoP, processed like a PCM signal and then "put back" into DSD.

    I'm fine. Le Bataclan is a couple hundred meters away from the showroom in the same street but everyone is fine -- and I'm safe in Denmark, (like I was on January 11th).
