  1. Welcome back! On the HD800 Rock question: well, all the things that work well for classical and Jazz, the extreme analytical clarity and transparency, really aren’t what I look for in rock music. It just lacks not even bass, but more of a dirty/physical feel, which the Beyers deliver much better than the Senns.

    Audirvana Plus 3 (official thread)

    On my computer, I barely ever face any issues with A+, and I use it really a lot, both with Qobuz and my own library. And the iOS app could certainly be improved in many ways (particularly the search function), but at least on my computer it works 99% of the time.

    I don’t think they have that functionality yet.

    Correct piano sound

    Sorry for potentially derailing this thread, but I'm struggling a bit with "The Piano Sound", that I've often read in other threads as well. Which piano? Even among the modern Steinways there are significant variations in sound, and if you add any other brand (Yamaha, Bösendorfer etc.) or add older models, the sound variations between pianos to me is bigger than the nuances between many of our systems today that are actually pretty resolving on average. So my question is, accurate compared to what? But I'm always interested in good piano recordings, unfortunately none of the two you propose are on Qobuz.

  15. I haven't been active on my blog recently as much as I wanted to, due to extensive business travel, but was just able to publish another entry on one of my very personal favorites: https://musicophilesblog.com/2018/08/14/the-legendary-bach-chaconne-my-favorite-keyboard-versions/
