  1. Really poor timing on old Neil's part. Ten minutes after he comes out with a stupidly shaped (if great sounding) DAP, phones start supporting USB DACs and there's Red Book streaming and even rectangular DAPs mostly become small paperweights. Oops
  2. I have the same sort of problem, but at 1080. My ancient Marantz (SR 56xx) receiver won't pass HD, so I run video sources to the TV and audio from the back to the receiver via S/PDIF. Works fine, but I did have to use the receiver's lip sync delay feature to get sight and sound lined up correctly. If I had the money in hand and basically could be bothered, I'd spring for the best receiver, with the best video features I could, with the lip sync thing being a major factor. That, and having a good scaler available to all sources. But since I've got good performance now...manyana...
  3. Ooof!
  4. When I worked for a little rural newspaper in the seventies, farmers would come into the office with what they considered to be noteworthy produce. I once had to photograph a sweet potato that looked just like Richard Nixon.
  5. Happy Birthday!!!
  6. Happy Birthday Laura!!!
  7. Hi all. I spent 2 days off in the garden of course.
  8. Happy Birthday my love! [emoji512]
  9. Happy Birthday Nate!! You and Craig should get together and have a party
  10. Happy Birthday Craig!!!
  11. Interesting. A good thing if it comes to pass. Fascinating that removing the head jack makes it possible for people to want decent quality. An alternative factoid. Or some part of marketing that I don't understand. Also interesting that Spotify isn't profitable yet.
  12. Didn't Monoprice get jacked up in court for their Energy speaker clone? (Which by must accounts sounded just like the originals)
  13. Hmmmm..... edge painting pad...... nice idea. I make my own out of velvet, foam, and wood, which is a pain in the butt. I found my Decca brush making scuff marks on my records, so now I'm using a similar wood-foam-velvet cleaning brush with a drop of old time Discwasher fluid for pre-play dusting on the turntable. By the way, allegedly, you can use diapers -or was it maxipads? - for drying. Anything to do with microfiber confuses me, so I just bought the SpinClean towels. Cheap enough.
  14. Understatement of the ... well, quite a while, anyway. BTW, apropos of not nothing in particular, I have lately been enjoying the DSP crossfeed feature that Roon put in v1.3. I was never much into that sort of thing. But in the digital domain it doesn't sound all fuzzy to me. Interesting.
  15. Yikes. Happy belated Birthday, Jeff!!!
