NOTE:  If you can't see the embedded video above, please CLICK HERE to see the video.   One of the world's best headphone shows took place in the heart of New York City, and there's plenty more to come. If you couldn't attend, see what you missed, and what you can catch at future CanJams. If you did attend, relive some of the magic.   Thanks to all the attendees, volunteers, and exhibitors for making CanJam New York so amazing!     One Of The Best Headphone Shows...
 I guess I don't understand your beef, ORT. There's nothing you have to pay for because of MQA if you don't want to pay for it. If you buy/download music that happens to be MQA-encoded--and I say "happens to be" because I can't imagine you (given your position) would be buying it because it's MQA-encoded--it's still going to work with whatever DAC or player you've got, and will play back at CD quality. If you subscribe to TIDAL--but not TIDAL Hi-Fi--then it's still going...
 Linked fixed (thanks for the heads-up). You make good points on the order of reading.
 If you're interested in reading up on MQA, I think one of the biggest must-reads is Chris Connaker's comprehensive Q&A with MQA's Bob Stuart. This was perhaps the single most comprehensive, easy-to-digest reading I've found about MQA, in which Bob welcomed any and all questions from the ComputerAudiophile community, and then answered them. I've spent hours talking to Bob about MQA over the last two years, and I still learned most of what I know about MQA from this Q&A....
 I'm not sure the differences--I think both use the same core technology for the surge protection. The Brick Walls come in two different versions of each. For example: Eight-outlet Audio Surge Protector ($279) Standard Eight-Outlet Surge Protector ($239) I did a quick look to see the difference(s) between the two, and all I could find was that the Audio version has this mentioned...  ...whereas the non-Audio one reads like this:  I've only ordered the Audio versions (big...
 Series mode surge protectors like the Brick Wall (and I think the ZeroSurge the same) are designed to withstand 1000 surges (at 60 second intervals) of 6000V and 3000A, and their protection mechanism is non-sacrificial (unlike a metal oxide varistor type surge protector). My main headphone rigs are plugged into Brick Wall surge protectors, as are all of my desktop computers (and all the computers at Head-Fi HQ). We've been using Brick Wall surge protectors for many years...
    MQA and Universal Music Group Announce Collaboration To Advance Hi-Res On-Demand Streaming   With Warner already on board and streaming MQA-encoded hi-res music via TIDAL, another major has signed on, announcing their collaboration with MQA today: Universal Music Group (UMG). What labels is Universal Music Group home to? Blue Note, Capitol, Abbey Road Studios, EMI, Decca Records, Deutsche Grammophon, ECM, Mercury Classics, Motown, Polydor, Verve, Virgin EMI, and...
 Agreed.
 Hi, @crinacle, we're using: Audio Precision APx555 audio analyzer Audio Precision APx1701 transducer test interface, which will replace the...

What's your FR look like? How's your THD? If you're at CanJam NYC, get your audio gear measured--headphones and electronics--at the Audio Precision exhibit in the Schubert Room.   The Schubert room is located behind the left wall (if you're facing the main entrance) of the main exhibit hall. (Look for the corridor that runs alongside that wall.)   Also, make sure not to miss their seminars on audio measurements, also in the Schubert Room:   Saturday, 2 p.m. - 3...
