@angelo898 can you please tell us how your Windows X hardware mod sounds?

And/Or is there anybody else who had this hardware mod made who can share his impressions?

Thanks!

Two questions for fellow Calyx M / iTunes Users:

1) Is there a secret to ensure all album art shows up on Calyx (i.e. file type, size)?

2) Do any iTunes users use 3rd party software like (XLD) to ripe CDs?

The only thing I would recommend is to embed your artwork and make sure that the artwork file is .jpg and not .png. The editor I use is Yate for the Mac and it does everything I want and then some. I only scratch the surface of its capabilities.

 

The only problem with iTunes is that you can't rip FLAC (although iTunes does rip ALAC, Apple's flavor of Lossless) so you would need a third party app such as XLD, if that's your preference. I use Fission.

The main thing I've found is that the artwork should be 500X500 pixels or smaller.  I've had trouble with larger artwork.

Thanks chawya22 & ddoyle777. I find if I let iTunes do all the work about 70% of the art shows up. I'll look into Yate.

 

I normally rip aiff in iTunes but I've begun to notice various click and pops. I've determined it's not the IEMs or Calyx so now I think it's the rips themselves. I'll keep digging. Let me know if anyone else has advise on ripping.

 

I came across this thread and now I'm inspired!
