    Definitively worth to read and it may quite stop the discussion about fancy cabling and money spent for audio "bijoux" ;-)

    Of course we can say that it was 2006 and technology changed since there etc., but the clue is indeed "out

  4. Remote Control Part VII: Logitech's Harmony Smart Control physical remote, keyboard, and iOS app

    by , 08-06-2014 at 01:09 PM (The Ill-Tempered Audiophool)
    I'm playing with a new remote control setup, the Logitech Harmony Smart Control system.

    I initially purchased the system with the physical remote:



    It lists for $130, but Logitech periodically drops the price to $99, so it is worth holding out (as I did) until the next time it goes on sale.

    You can also buy it with an integrated keyboard/scrollpad instead:

    The devil is in the details to release a stable fully functional release, not an alpha version, especially as this is going to be a paid upgrade.
    But I agree, perfection is an endless quest, tuning features can always go on, but the release must happen.

  7. Write-protect your iTunes library to avoid accidental deletion or damage

    by , 07-17-2014 at 11:47 AM (The Ill-Tempered Audiophool)
    Here are two AppleScripts that turn write-protection on and off for your music library. If you want to add or edit stuff, run the script ResetWriteProtectMusic. If you want to protect your music files from accidental alteration or deletion, run the script WriteProtectMusic. These can be placed in the user's ~/Library/iTunes/Scripts directory, and they appear in the iTunes script menu item (here as the bottom two entries):

It has just a few settings after you activate it in the Audirvana preferences for feed level and for low pass frequency. It is based on the Boris

Lots of people, including me went for high resolution, because different mastering in that case brought to us much better sound quality then regular CD nowdays produced for mass market without much attention to sonics. Just my thoughts however.

    USB card fits perfectly with a PCI riser card (you can order it online from HDPlex) however you can't put the screw on right back side for the top plate. It extends slightly from the corner.

  14. Remote Control Part VI: Use iTunes on one computer to control Audirvana Plus, Decibel, or other player software on another

    by , 06-10-2014 at 06:03 PM (The Ill-Tempered Audiophool)
    How to use iTunes on one computer to control Audirvana Plus or other third-party player software on another computer

    I'm experimenting with using iTunes as a remote-control interface. It has always kind of bothered me that there is no desktop-based version of Apple's Remote.app (like the one on my iPad I can use with Bob Stern's script to control Audirvana). I found a way to trick iTunes into doing this for me, using a simple zsh shell script that you can obtain from this link: ...
