Smart Playlists: I just found out they rule

by whoozwah on 09-23-2016 at 05:00 PM
I do most of my music listening on my phone in the car. That's where I have the most free time to pay attention to music. It's great when I have an opportunity to sit down and listen to an album all the way through on the HIFI but generally speaking, I'm jamming in the car.


I used to have an iPod but got rid of it when I got my android as it has expandable storage and is customizable and I can do all my things with one computer (that can call people). So I went looking for the

Genre tagging is philosophy

by whoozwah on 08-01-2016 at 03:24 PM
I just spent the past weekend re-tagging the genres on all my music. My music tagging system has gone through several variations over the years and something in my brain hasn't let me stick with one system for too long for one reason or another.


When I originally started tagging music I would put bands into what seems like the most appropriate genres. So I had genres like Hard Rock, Symphonic Power Metal, AOR, Funk, Film Noir Jazz, etc. Keep in mind I also used genres as my top

Build and Lift

by whoozwah on 05-02-2016 at 05:24 PM
This is our purpose. We are here to build and lift each other. If the world comes to us, it's because they need us. They need what we have. And what we have is knowledge and experience. We can use these to build and lift the world. Can you imagine it?


What if the audiophile community decided that the "prime directive" so to speak was to build and lift up people around us by educating them about how to make the music they love sound better to them for a price they can

This time it's personal

by whoozwah on 02-11-2016 at 02:49 PM
  • We can never hear all the gear.
  • No stereo can ever be the ultimate as next year's entry level model will blow away this year's reference model (as is always the case).
  • We can never know if any recording is accurate to any given benchmark.
  • Measurements are sometimes useful but ultimately incomplete.
  • We can never know what someone else hears or for that matter, why they hear it, too many personal and environmental factors to take into account.
  • The pursuit of greater audio can only be

Listening to music on the Hi-Fi

by whoozwah on 01-29-2016 at 12:53 PM
I don't think I qualify as a typical audiophile or if I do, it stops short of most of the expected characteristics people associate with audiophiles. I have an especially hard time using the lingo to describe the sound of my components. I think it deals with what Michael Lavorgna of Audiostream commonly refers to "listening to music on the hi-fi".

I don't really listen to the hifi itself so its hard to tell you what it sounds like. I listen to the music. The stereo is just
