  1. @rduras You could try the Tidal for Windows App. I don't have a Windows computer but it appears that that the Tidal app still works with Windows 7 Jens
  2. Don’t know if this has improved sound quality of my system BUT I do FEEL better and this is what matters Today I have „downgraded“ my system from 4.0 to 2.0 again by removing the Marantz 1508 AVR and the Dali Zensor Pico rears: Less cables and boxcount with the Majik DSM as only amp in my system.
  3. Hmm, agree with you that “On Sunset” was one of the best albums of 2020. Upon first listening “Fat Pop”: Not disappointing - although I will probably always skip the opener “Cosmic Fringes” - but it will not become one of my favourite PW albums...
  4. True! My first recollection of Demis Roussos is his appearance in German TV Show "Hitparade" singing pop songs in German (!), must have been in the late 70's, at that time he was a real "heavyweight" (> 120kg).
  5. TBH I have never touched this and kept the default 5 unchanged which is a "midsize" compression (in terms of file size)
  6. @Lincoln Tyke Don't think you did anything wrong: dBPoweramp is an excellent tool and the only thing you could get wrong is wripping to a lossy format (which you did not do). I think you are probably just comparing poor CD's with good quality Tidal versions.
  7. Aphrodite's Child - 666 A very strange album - not necessarily because of the "number of the beast" reference - but in many other respects: Last album of the band, after which Vangelis and Demis Roussos & Co went their separate ways. Immense production costs for those times (1970) of abt 90.000 $ It took half an eternity from recording to release due to dispute between the band and Mercury Records: In 1971, the band celebrated a "1-year non-release party", which was also attended by Salvador Dali. Commercially a complete failure I have a German pressing but no
  8. Not yet listening to but by forthcoming "Songcorder Project" next weekend: The Stooges - 1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions (15 LP(!) Box Set) Great "Unboxing video" by Henry Rollins: Henry Rollins on how the Stooges' "Fun House" changed his life
  9. @Moomintroll thx! Just ordered the 2CD plus Bluray version after listening to this on Tidal. Love „Albatross“ with David Gilmour As some kind of „collateral damage“ I ordered the original as well:
  10. Curtis Mayfield - Curtis (1970) „(Don‘t Worry) If there‘s a hell below we‘re all going to go“ is one of the greatest songs and the lyrics are as relevant as they were 50 years ago...
  11. And now for something completely different: Just listening to Sleaford Mods - Divide And Exit BTW this is by far the funniest musicvideo I have seen in a very long time (although it's 60 seconds only...): Biggy Pop dancing to "Tweet Tweet Tweet" (from the above album): https://louderthanwar.com/watch-this-iggy-pops-pet-parrot-dancing-to-sleaford-mods/ "Listen to UK music baby...it's a bird song!"
  12. Kinks - The Mono Selection I have just taken it out of our family collection to digitise "songcorder" it. P.S.: Just see that this comparatively new issue (2016) is being traded around 350-450 Euro @ Discogs....
