  1. Even better news...if the MQA group would freely offer these comparative demos and, if the results are as you and Chris report, they have done their work. In my case and a in few others these comparisons weren't offered. Apologies for the OT.
  2. This is encouraging....we, the great unwashed, aren't offered this comparison so am happy to hear your report. I attended the last Vancouver, BC, Canada, audio show with the sole purpose to hear MQA as was reported to be demoed. The MQA guy played one or two MQA tracks but was unwilling, even after direct requests, to play the non-MQA'd track. This is at the nub of why there is so much suspicion as to motive. The audio press get these auditions; the public, not so much. Wonder why.
  3. ...announce it to the public YESTERDAY? Typo or editorial comment? Would welcome any news on these guys..
  4. Now this is interesting...nothing on the ROON site yet. Any info you can relay would be welcome. Best, wdw
  5. I'm no prude by any stretch at all but I suspect this may be offensive to any woman reading this site. Zappa was a brilliant musician and one of the greatest guitarist of our generation but the puerile lyrics simply distracted from his genius.
  6. Installed......notice the LED display is a constant magenta regardless of the input sample rate. No clear indication whether the file is MQA.
  7. Why bother with a funded thread in if you ignore it?
  8. Totally helpful post...highly recommended for any having issues with doubled library entries. thanks, wdw
  9. Jud, I appreciate your concern but aren't these observatiions self-evident. Cheers, Warren
  10. Seriously? Amazing! Nevertheless, I will likely try again but the one takeaway that is of far greater concern to me is the inability of Time Machine to recognize the Synology NAS share....in trying to unearth the problem I found a number of posts outlining this issue and providing workarounds. I wonder how pervasive this problem is. Restore Time Machine backup from Synology - Technical Exchange bLog How to Restore a Time Machine Backup From a Synology NAS — timbroder.com
  11. My apologies....I'm sure it my clumsiness in copying the file. Regards.
  12. Suppose I shouldn't have tried this procedure...too much a novice....my system crashed completely and had to do a Time Machine restore...that went fine but a few days later the MacBook is showing the same crash behaviour. Is this malware? I assume that restoring to a time earlier than the attempted exercise the issue was closed and the corruption file no longer in the system but apparently not. Also discover that restoring from a NAS is it's own world of pain...Time Machine sees the NAS but won't accept the login name and password. Google search tells me this is a vey common problem with most suggesting that NAS Drives will not be readable from the COMMAND-R Restore window. Anyone have any success with login into a NAS from this window?
  13. One item that was implicit in the purchase of the DF was the promise of a firmware update enabling MQA and iOS app fo rcontrol of the DAC. Wondering where and when this may be released. Any one heard anything positive?
  14. Suggest you buy a copy of YATE. Not too pricey but is very easy and fluid in making changes to metadata. I have a lifetime sub to ROON (the supposed metadata master) and Yate is very much of use. A+ is far superior to ROON in maintaining classical metadata, IMO. WDW
  15. Downloaded and it is so easily apparent this version is lovely....hearing a nuance that wasn't there before. For the small amount of money to upgrade it so well worth it. Damien, I was expecting an upgrade price higher than you've asked and would have, likely, paid it. Your work easily leaves my "lifetime" ROON is the sonic dust. wdw
