Now back with her own band, Noah Wall lets her voice shine through on this stunning example of classic Folk sensibilities with a modern twist. Down Home Blues mixes traditional Folk songs with new original material showcasing Wall’s songwriting as well as vocals. Noah is also the lead singer, fiddler, and founding member of the award winning acoustic band "The Barefoot Movement." Now based in Nashville, TN, the group continues to rack up the miles, touring both domestically and internationally. Wall's songwriting skills can be heard in the majority of the band's original material, which has been compiled onto three full length albums. The group's notoriety continues to grow through features in such publications as Country Weekly Magazine, RollingStone.com, CMT Edge, and Billboard.com. In 2014, they were presented with the Momentum Award for Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Declared "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene" by CMT, the band is still going strong, bringing shoe-less excitement to every performance. Part of the Chesky Binaural + Series, all recorded with a single microphone, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording.

Hi, Does anyone know if there is a hi res download available of John Hiatt's Bring The Family? I'm a great fan, have most of his releases (vinyl and/or CD), but missed the 2004 dvd-a of Bring The Family. I expected that, given the increased interest in hi res and the availability of this hi res mix, the album would turn up as a download, but I didn't find it (yet). Hiatt gave a great show in Utrecht (the Netherlands) last weekend, and it definitely sparked my interest. I really really really need to find this one ;-) Of course any tip is welcome concerning Hiatt's music in hi res! To prevent any time-wasting: I know of, and have already: Master Of Disaster (sacd), Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns (dvd-a) and Terms Of My Surrender (24/44 download) ... Keeping my fingers crossed ...! Marc
NachoUser posted a topic in Networking, Networked Audio, and StreamingHi - I am new to this forum but have recently upgraded a lot of my equipment from speakers to receiver, blu ray player, 2 channel pre and power amp as well as my most recent additions the DAC2 DX from benchmark and the cocktail audio x40. My challenge is that I have music all over the place from my macbook stored locally to a NAS server by QNAP (and WDmycloud) to streaming services and SACD/CD etc. my goal has been lately to have a separate 2 channel system from my marantz sr7009 which was previously my all in one component for music/movies and more. my issue as of late is that I do not like having to plug in my macbook via hard link (usb/optical etc.) to the benchmark or other input (analog on jc-2 preamp) because I find it limiting. I dont think I have any digital outputs on my sr7009 and my BR player while quite capable of these tasks is not the easiest device to sort through NAS media files,etc. The cocktail audio player is a smorgasbord of technology and functionality but I have yet to tame this beast and there is not a lot of information out there right now to help. so my question would be this - (my equipment is listed below for reference) what would be the ideal way to hook up all the components in a way where I do not have to constantly plug/replug and switch wires and speaker cables around but can still watch movies in surround sound (from the sr7009) and use my separate two channel system (jc-2/dac2 dx/A-21 power amp) and ideally have music either played back via a media player (could be macbook pro or could be something else) streamed or playback by disc. I want the best in sound quality and to separate the two types of playback as much as possible as I have experienced an unbelievable clear, clean and eye opening sound from the new 2 channel separates moving from my all in one receiver and i do not want to sacrifice that in anyway. I also want to know what media playback method would work best, using a dedicated media player device like the cocktail audio player or something like an auralec/etc? or USB via my macbook is the best method? would be awesome to have my two subwoofers in the mix too but no one on other forums or anything I can find online seem to support stereo subwoofer setups. this would be ideal to me as i am not a huge fan of audyssey or other EQ when it comes to my tunes. happy to answer more questions as I have way too much equipment and very little know how:) speakers - B&W CM10 mains, CMC2 center, CM5 surrounds Subwoofers - dual SVS SB2000s receiver/BR = marantz sr7009 and ud7007 respectively 2 channel rig - Parasound JC-2 preamp, parasound A21 power amp (both two channel only) Digital - Benchmark dac2dx and macbook pro Cocktail Audio X-40 (DAC/media player/disc ripper/streamer and more) NAS - qnap ts431 and wdmcloud thanks in advance for anyone with enough patience and time to help out.
Hi, I'm sure this has been covered in length elsewhere, but I'm looking for something to replace my squeezebox. I've found it a useful, if horrible sounding streaming solution -- but the things it can do are perfect for what I need. i'd like to play music on my networked computer, as well as access various services, including pandora and spotify. I DO NOT need a DAC as I have been using my Esoteric for DAC work, it will decode DSD, and most other formats beautifully. Budget isn't much of an issue, but I'm not looking to spend $10K+ on a mere server -- although it needs to be better sounding than the Squeezebox I'm retiring -- and should be able to decode all the hi-rez formats that are coming down the line. What say you all?
