If you're thinking about getting back into the hobby or considering purchasing your first turntable, this guide will run you through the basics of what to look for in a turntable setup. Resonance Control - Controlling Unwanted Vibrations in an Audio Systems When listening to music, speakers are the main source of vibration traveling through the ground and back to your equipment, also termed floor-borne vibration. It’s the job any component isolation product (footers, shelves, stands) to protect the supported component from external ground and air vibration interference. Vibration is a variable which must be mastered through proper design and discreet material choices to achieve resonance control for your audio system.

  8. Total newbie here, so please excuse any ignorance in the post. I am using Tidal and Amarra SQ+ together on my late 2014 iMac Retina. Playback is great, but if I leave the system for a while with the music paused, I don't get any sound output. I can still see the gain meters moving in Amarra, however. The only solution I've been able to figure out is to quit Amarra while the music is playing, and open it back up. I don't recall having this issue when I was using a digital out, but just went to USB for a solution to a different issue. I know Amarra has a Tidal offering now, but I find it ridiculous to pay extra when SQ+ is supposed to help with streaming services in general. Thanks for any suggestions!
  9. This possibly ought to be in the music networking room, but that seems more hardware related and I wanted to get maximum exposure - I hope that's alright Mods? Internet radio stations based in the USA are about to be clobbered by a new Bill concerning royalties. It is an unjust situation which, it is reported, favors large corporations (Apple, Spotify, Tidal(?) and others) with a rate which is equal if not lower to previously, but could price almost all independent net radio stations out of existence. Given what we know about royalty payments to artists through such corporations, I doubt this will benefit musicians much... I know there is a lot of love for Radio Paradise among music lovers and audiogeeks like us, so if you can spare the time please visit the Change.org page here and sign a petition to get this re-examined. More information can be found on the Radio Paradise homepage, including a link to this open letter to David Byrne (who ought to know better IMO).
  10. I bought my first high end products - a NAD receiver, turntable and wonderful speakers from a company whose name I do not recall -- in 1980. I have owned good stuff ever since. I bought the good stuff to enjoy even more the passion of my life -- music. I bought my first computer, an Osborne 1, about the same time. Back then, computers were for spreadsheets and wordprocessing. The Osborne and its PC successors have been used a lot for that. I installed one of the first Novell networks in 1987 in my small CPA office betting the farm that the increased efficiency would justify the cost. My bet paid off big time. Finally, I built a music computer in the early nineties using the highest rated sound card at the time (and again its name has been forgotten). I ripped my CD collection to wav files and used iTunes to play them. (Unfortunately, a crash disconnected the files from the metadata in iTunes and the files were pretty much lost. But that's another story.) The point of the foregoing is to establish that I know a little bit about both high end audio and computers. I got a divorce a few years ago and pretty much lost all of my equipment. I am only now getting back on my proverbial feet. I am installing a TV system in my house that I will hopefully also be able to listen to music on. I want to be able to play ripped CDs from an NAS as well as stream music. I am currently using Spotify which is OK. I hope to try out Apple Music and Tidal in the near future. Based on what I have read, I see Tidal as my future streaming service. My new system will be centered around a Marantz AV8801 processor/preamp. My question is what additional hardware I need to play files and stream music. I have spent a fair amount of time on the Internet and particularly on this site to answer this question. But I must say that I am overwhelmed by all of the technologies discussed in this forum. I know that one way to go would be to buy a Mac Mini and a DAC and plug the analog outputs of the DAC into the Marantz unit. It also appears that I could plug the Mac Mini directly into the Marantz and use its internal DAC. Finally, the AV8801's documentation says that I can stream using the unit by using a router that supports audio streaming. But I have no idea what that means. My reading seems to say that while a computer and a DAC will work fine, an "appliance" might sound a lot better and would cost about the same. I wouldn't be using the Mac for anything other that serving as a music server. My budget for this project is $100k. Just kidding. Actually, if I could start off kind of inexpensively and then build more quality and capability into the system over the next year or two, that would be great. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Happy New Year! Tim
  11. Just got this email Why not? If they have the files, might as well appeal to as broad a market as possible. I still like to download my favorite albums. If HDTracks or PONO doesn't have something in hi res, i'd consider going to TIDAL for CD quality downloads.

  13. Lumin D1 Network Music Player FALL SPECIAL ($150 off Sbooster BOTW Power Supply with purchase of D1) During the development of LUMIN A1, our focus was to create the absolute best source at any price. No expense was spared in its production. With the LUMIN D1, their aim was to try and retain all that award-winning musicality while compromising as little as possible in every other area.

  14. I have the Tidal app running on my macbook pro retina but can't figure out how to send it to my Oppo BDP 105. I have JRiver and use it to wirelessly send my music file to the Oppo so I am set up for wireless connection to my Oppo. Just don't know how to get mac to send to Oppo without JRiver. Sorry for the dumb question. This computer audio revolution sure is making me feel like an old man!
  15. Can anyone tell me if it s possible to somehow upsample the streams from TIDAL or Spotify? I purchased Audrivana which has a powerful upsampling filter, bypassing Core audio. Just wondering if there was some way to feed it the stream from a streaming service like Tidal or Spotify

AURALiC Tesla Platform 
ARIES is powered by AURALiC's proprietary Tesla hardware platform that includes a Quad-Core ARM Coretex-A9 processor running at 1GHz, 1GB DDR3 onboard memory and 4GB internal storage. The Tesla platform has a calculation ability of 25,000 MIPS, more than enough to decode a vast spectrum of audio formats, including AAC, AIFF, ALAC, APE, DIFF, DSF, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, WV and WMA. AURALiC has chose this platform for a long term supporting consideration, the feature planned include DSD upsampling, room acoustic treatment and other acoustic DSP function. 

Gapless, Multiple Room Solution 
By using OpenHome structure which is adopted by U.K-based streaming solution manufacturer Linn, ARIES as well as all other Lightning based products support several advanced functions such as on-device playlist that allow control software to turn off during play and complete supporting of multi-room, multiple control points — functions that are not part of the legacy standards of the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA). 

 Dual Femto Clock* 
The ARIES with two individual Femto clocks for both USB audio host and digital outputs: the clock used for digital outputs are in charge of generate master clock of digital signal to ensure lowest jitter performance for all digital outputs. Accordingly to our measurement, the USB controller's master clock can also effect sound quality as it effect USB interrupt timing when joint use with real time system, to maximum sound quality, ARIES also equipped with another Femto clock for USB controller. 

 Low Noise Linear PSU* 
Excepting for low noise internal power supply design, ARIES also comes with an external low noise linear power supply unit. This PSU is based on AURALiC Purer‐Power™ technology with advanced AC filter and very low noise circuit design. The actual measurement shows only 10uV cross 20Hz-20KHz range.
  17. Now that TIDAL HIFI has launched in the US and UK (Computer Audiophile - The TIDAL HIFI Revolution Starts Today) many of us will find that some music isn't available on the service just yet. This thread is hear to let the people at TIDAL HIFI know what music we want on the service. Please use this thread as a MUSIC WISH LIST only. Can't find something on TIDAL? Enter it in this thread. Having problems with the apps? Start a new thread. P.S. The TIDAL HIFI people will be reading this thread :~)
  18. I understand using audio enhancers like dfx and srs with mp3's, but should they be used with losses formats? (Flac or CD's). I recently signed up for tidalhifi.com loss-less streaming and sometimes my DFX enhancer seems to do more harm than good. I appreciate any input, experience or feedback on when (if ever) it makes sense to use audio enhancers (and which ones). Thank you..
  19. So I signed up for a one month subscription to test out streaming FLAC and explore TIDAL's music catalog. With my primary system (see below), the FLAC file playback does make a sonic difference. However, not all music is available in FLAC. I keep the Logitech Media Server web player tab open in my browser to check now and then. With my experience, I am unimpressed with TIDAL's music editors and curation. Clearly, the employees at TIDAL and I have different tastes in music. This became evident with Playlists categories and Genres. So be it. After exploring the music catalog, I find enough of the artists and albums I like to keep the subscription. For those using intermediate music streamers, that approach to finding and managing music can be a bit less-than workable, particularly if you're on an smartphone. Over time, I'm sure apps will become more refined and usable. In the meantime, here's a tip/trick for using TIDAL on your music streamer of choice. In addition to your open playback controller app, open the TIDAL standalone app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Bigger screen is better. Use the TIDAL interface for exploring/searching*, saving artists, albums, tracts, and building playlists. You can then switch back to whatever playback controller you have implemented. * In TIDAL, try different variations of album or tract titles. For example, leaving off the last letter will return variations of the search. Also, when the search results appear, click on the "Show All Results" at the bottom of the box. Another current benefit of the TIDAL app Search, in contrast to some controllers, is that the results are sorted: 1) full artist albums, then 2) Singles and EPS, then 3) inclusions in other multi-artist works. _________________________ Please add to this thread any more "tips & tricks" you come across that might be helpful.
  20. This is interesting: TIDAL · High Fidelity Test I'm a TIDAL subscriber and have been satisfied with the quality of most recordings. I'm using the Mac desktop app on a dedicated Mac Mini music server piped through the AYRE QB9 DSD DAC. Much prefer TIDAL to Deezer Elite as I've found many Deezer sound files are still in MP3. Unfortunately the Deezer catalog is much more extensive than Tidal's at the moment. Hope that changes soon or it will be hard to justify $20/month.
  21. Have begun trial subs to both Deezer Elite and Tidal. Would prefer to choose just one to pay for. Initial impressions for me are that Tidal sounds a bit better. Not leaps and bounds, but a bit more spacious. Also has more articulated bass. Catalog differences may be the deciding factor, though. Both have large gaps in their offerings, and not the same titles. Anyone else beating these two up?
