    Album of the Evening

    Thanks for posting this. I can't remember when I listened to them last but I'll be listening tonight.

    A classic from 1959.

    Inspired by the mere mention of Hank Mobley ..
  4. I couldn't agree more. @gustavo .. did you hear back from Bluesound yet?

  6. Hi gustavo and welcome. I believe Bluesound devices have a 200,000 tracks limit, after which it will stop indexing your library. A factor for you? FWIW, about 2.5 years ago I purchased a Node 2 out of frustration with Apple updates breaking something. Didn't look back until recently. My whole system has changed since then and, being the curious type, I re-inserted my Mac mini back into the system and updated to the latest Amarra 4 build. The sound quality improvement was significant and I reluctantly removed the Node 2. Thankfully, Amarra 4 has been quite stable for me. I also use sQ+ for streaming various services (Pandora, internet radio) without issue. Obviously I like the Amarra sound but I also use Audirvana + and HQPlayer depending on mood. Bluesound make nice products and I'm still happily using the Node 2 in my work space.

    Article: Google Home Hub for HiFi?

    This is unfortunate. I have one coming soon and was hoping for a nice Deezer HiFi implementation. Hopefully it's addressed quickly. (Neither Google nor Deezer seem to do anything quickly.)

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Considering the age of the average audiodude I'm kind of surprised no one else here has seen the movie (yet?).

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Billboard Hot 100 ... again. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/chart-beat/8484827/queen-bohemian-rhapsody-prince-1999-hot-100

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Apparently, the movie is doing quite well at the box office. Critics once again fail to understand the appeal of Queen, just like when the song was released in the 70's. Ironic, no?

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Anyone else see the movie? I saw it last night with a friend and we both loved it. I saw Queen 3 times in my youth and the movie transported me right back to those days. Fun. Rami Malik's performance is everything the critics are raving about and the film itself is very entertaining. If you are a Queen fan .. highly recommended. If not .. see it anyway.
  14. True, but progress has been made in the sound quality department especially with LDAC. For me, Bluetooth is all about being mobile so I don't care if it does lossless. Sure, it would be nice but for much of my mobile listening (planes, trains, automobiles) the increase in fidelity would be lost on me due to ambient noise. At home, I never use Bluetooth.
