  1. Now, I’m not going to do this anytime soon, but I need to upgrade my main computer to macOS Sierra. That is the computer with my master iTunes collection. A long story short, but it is still on Mavericks. NO, I thought Mavericks was OK, but I didn’t really like Yosemite. When I finally had the time to upgrade this particular machine to El Capitan, the boot installer I created was made with an El Capitan installer that had the expired certificates. So, that was a no go. I do like Sierra enough to make the jump. As I generally do a clean install, the only thing that worries me when upgrading this machine is iTunes. This OS X Mavericks computer is still on either iTunes 11, 12.1 or 12.2. (This computer is in another location.) From reading Kirk’s various columns, posts, and listening to his podcasts, I never got around to loving the latest versions of iTunes, but now I am ready to make the jump with 12.5. I have never used iTunes in the Cloud or Apple Music. And I mostly rip my own CDs. I never allow iTunes (or any other app) to download cover art. (I save the covers I use to a folder.) My question is “How do I make the jump?” I am gathering that if I do a clean install, I will automatically upgrade to 12.5. Or should I firstly, upgrade iTunes on the Mavericks machine to 12.5. Secondly, move the iTunes folder to an external drive and upgrade to macOS Sierra. Then, move the iTunes folder on the external drive to the newly blessed, clean computer? Actually, I want to prevent macOS Sierra and iTunes from establishing any setting that allows it to download artwork or any other thing. I just want to upgrade — not have iTunes force any additions, changes or substitutions. (Yes, I read some posts on the Kirk’s iTunes Forum about downgrading iTunes, but I’m trying to avoid that!) Some time around iTunes, in August, I noticed that I could no longer see my compilations. After doing some searching, I did see that they were still there. I could see them in ‘Recently Added,’ but not in the ‘Albums’ view. They finally appeared in ‘Albums’ after the second golden master of Sierra. With the computer I am using to test with, I only have a few compilations out of 71 albums. Any ideas, much appreciated! @kirk, I know you always write that you test the various versions of iTunes on a computer that does not house your main body of iTunes. Which version of iTunes holds your master iTunes collection? (If you don’t mind enlightening us.)
  2. Hi everyone, I used for a year a wadia 121 DAC plugged with usb interface with my old iMac and got nothing less than pleasure. A couple of month ago I did an upgrade to a new imac, the os was in version 10.8 and, as 10.9 (mavericks) was already out, I did an os upgrade. Since then using the wadia with usb is really problematic, the sound is clattering, first the rattle is gentle and becomes very annoying. The annoyance is less important when using audirvana as itunes plugin, but still there. I didn't remarked anything special before I upgrade to 10.9 but I used this computer a very short time before updating, so not 100% sure the problem was not already there. I have sent an email to wadia support to ask them if they had any negative feedbacks from users of mac os 10.9, I'm waiting for their answer. Does anyone had such problem ? Thanks for help and suggestions.
