    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    https://othermusic.vhx.tv/products/the-afi-silver-presents-other-music - This is worth every penny of the $10 to watch. When I was in college in the late 70's I hung out at a store in Pikesville, MD called The Music Machine. Smaller store, same vibe. https://www.facebook.com/musicmachinerecords/

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I have been running MoOde on two RPi systems (see signature) for over 2 years and they have been rock solid. One is fed by a USB HDD and the other by a Synology NAS. The user community is very active and the developer is engaged & open to suggestions from users and will often incorporate new...

    Thanks for the recommendation! Quboz is your friend - https://open.qobuz.com/album/0002894461312. I had the pleasure recently of hearing Ms. Josefowicz in a virtuosic performance of Scheherazade.2 by John Adams with the Baltimore Symphony, Marin Alsop conducting (https://wapo.st/2Mcdkma).

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    This article [1] showed up in one of my news feeds yesterday. I am unfamiliar with the turntable and speakers but the ARC SP-3A and D-150 are near and dear. Back in the mid 80's I worked at a small High End shop in Leesburg, VA called High C Stereo. ARC was our main line of electronics and we...

    Here is what I use to house my RPi setup (pics at bottom of page) - http://bit.ly/2sa0ZSN. Unfortunately the unit I purchased is no longer available from TwelveSouth. The new and improved model is considerably more expensive! But my unit can be found new on ebay - https://ebay.to/2scdqNR.

    What a long, strange trip it's been -- (Robert Hunter)

    Apparently there was a kerfuffle in Israel last Friday when classical radio station Kol HaMusica played a recording of the final act of Götterdämmerung. Reports vary: Agence France, The Telegraph & BBC News. Ironic(?) that the broadcast was of a performance recorded in 1991, conducted by Daniel...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I use the iFi iEMatch [1] on my Fulla 2 driving a pair of Grado SR 80e and love it. Prior to the iFi I was limited to 7 - 8 on the volume pot. Now, depending on the sensitivity setting, I have use of the pot from 11 - 5 which offers a lot more granular control. One can argue the merits of...

    Guide to using Raspberry Pis for Audiophile Projects

    I've had great success using the HiFiBerry S/PDIF Boards. Both the original Digi+ and Digi+ Pro have worked flawlessly for me on Raspberry Pi 2B, 3B & 3B+. They've been stable running Rune, Volumio and my current choice MoOde.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Maynard was also a huge favorite of mine during my high school days. I played Baritone Sax in my high school Jazz Big Band. I recall being blown away when he and his band were in concert at a local high school in suburban Maryland in the middle 70's. "Hey Jude" was one of their signature pieces...

    Two reasons primarily. 1) You will notice I have a WiFi dongle attached to the hub. Even though the RPi 3 B & B+ had integrated WiFi I found the connection unreliable within the metal confines of the HiRise. I use WiFi for controlling MoOde and transferring music files from my main library. 2)...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Back in the 1980's when I worked for a small High End audio shop in Leesburg, Virginia we had a client that had a contractor cut out a circular portion of the slab in his audio equipment closet and then had them pour an isolated concrete column several feet high to place his Oracle Delphi TT on...

    I grabbed 2 matched pairs of Western Electric 396A NOS (80's) for about $75/pair on ebay after your enthusiastic recommendation here [1] using these adapters [2]. I can confirm they "really work" on Nickel Creek and pretty much everything else too on my Lyr 2. [1]...
