  1. I use Qobuz via Roon but I have a Chromecast Audio attached to my streamer / DAC via optical so that my family (and myself sometimes) can cast to it from Spotify. My friends send me links via Spotify so it’s easier to listen to them onSpotify than look them up on Qobuz Btw. Qobuz looks AMAZING on Roon ios (iphone) It's re skinned and also has additional functions like 'recent' and the ability to generate a radio station from your recent listens. I am so impressed.
  2. Donald Fagin's book Hipster (something...?) Not bad, asked for it or Xmas.

  4. It has 4 extra bands of 'room' eq possible in speaker mode. I actually miss the extra bands on headphone mode. But musn't grumble.
  5. Actually your comment made me pause for thought. I always use eq (for speakers and headphones) as I have some hearing loss and know what I am missing. I use a handful of reference tracks and tweak them to how I expect them to sound. I am always looking for: large sub bass size on kick drums, lack of low mid boom and plenty of upper mid / high frequency "tinsel" / sparkle. I have three bands of parametric dsp to play with in my DAC. For the leather pads I had one eq band set to get the treble uplift I need then and other two to reveal sub bass 'thunk' (boosting in the 40
  6. These are supplied with alternate ear-cups. the shiny leather ones keep the sub bass in - the suede ones let it escape too much.
  7. I’ve been there but ages ago a friend of mine worked there (Andy) Another chum is part of the management of the club / bar / restaurant of the same name in Kings Cross it’s nice and has a very fancy hifi system in it worth over 100K allegedly! I have been Mezzing around with some Meze Empyrean’s lately. They are very revealing.
  8. Whoops! Sold! Handed down to younger brother (lucky him)
  9. Very good condition. Non smoking house. No internal speakers on monitor, and no dead/ burned pixels AOC C32G1 - 32 Inch FHD Curved Gaming Monitor, 144 Hz, 1ms, VA, AMD FreeSync Premium, Flicker Free (1920 x 1080 @ 144 Hz, 250cd/m², HDMI 1.4 x 2, Display Port 1.2 x 1, VGA) AOC C32G1 32 inch Gaming monitor, minimal bezel design,144Hz, Free Sync, VA Panel, 1Ms response time DP, HDMI. Mainly aimed at demanding players, playing fast paced games at high settings.Wall mountable (VESA compatible) and tilt feature for the best viwing angle
  10. My speakers are on the floor angled upwards (on desktop stands) The areas they are in aren't exactly the same either. I look forwards to trying room corection one day as they will surely need different bass settings.
  11. Ahh no I did miss that. Thanks. So in summary, for the usefulness of the SHD feature set, you tolerate Volumio's user interface shortcomings?
  12. Is anyone here using the MiniDSP streamer function? (It's Volumio right?) If so how is that going? How is the remote (phone tablet) control of Qobuz or Tidal? (I don't have any files) Thanks
  13. This is terrific Intel. Much appreciated! Thanks
