I'm fine, thanks for asking. Just working on some engineering stuff this weekend. That's the fun work for me.

Awesome, enjoying any creative process (especially if it pays the bills) is essential to everyone's well being.

OK, I always liked that line in Stand and Deliver where the one teacher asks the other for a good poet to introduce the kids to and he says, "Dylan" and the first one says, "Isn't Dylan Thomas a little heavy for the kids?" and he responds, "I meant Bob."

Anyway, who sings Bob Dylan best besides Bob?

This thread picked my music tonight. Listening to Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited in 24/96. Then moving to LP for Tweeter And The Monkey Man. Love the album, but this is my favorite cut. Then going to play Jennifer Warnes - Famous Blue Raincoat Have to decide between vinyl or digital). Finish up with Karla Bonoff - Karla Bonoff on LP ( Someone To Lay Down Beside). Also have it by Linda Ronstadt at 24/192.

Only have one Leonard Cohen album - the future. That is a great song.
Thanks for the "playlist" everyone.

I have zero talent. I do not sound good in my helmet in the middle of the desert on a beautiful day. I am that pathetic a singer and can not play a single note. But I know what I like. And I know what I loathe, cRap and Hippity Hop come immediately to my feeble mind. Hick-Hop (i.e., Taylor Swift) makes me very unhappy. My son likes some odd form of guttural/screaming metal rock. I can not stand it.

I can hear some minds here..."The FARCE is strong with this toad"...
ORT
LOL, funny, I was just talking to a co-worker a couple of days ago and relating that I like pretty much any genre except what I call "junk rap" (no melody, no hook, no clever word smithing, just talentless junk not even the people listening to it now will listen to in 20 years!) and that same "guttural/screaming metal rock" that I had to demonstrate to my co-worker by playing some on Spotify since he had never heard the mess, and he agreed with me that it was unlistenable.

And on the Schiit front, I'm really considering getting the Loki as 1) I love the name (yes, I know that is silly!) and more importantly, 2) I've never been one to get satisfactory results with digital EQ - still haven't figured out what to use on Mac for system-wide EQ for that matter, and the Windows one many recommend Equalizer APOm doesn't work anymore for some reason on my system -- it's just another piece of software and software always seemed vulnerable to not working as it isn't anymore for me (it literally does nothing) and it's annoying, so I hate software EQ.

Folks that don't appreciate Dylan are the same folks that use music to listen to equipment instead of using equipment to listen to music.
So wrong as far as I'm concerned.....:L3000:
May apply to others.........:ksc75smile:

Bob Dylan is great. When you listen to him, if you are looking for a pure voice, you will be disappointed. His music is not about vocal purity. I would rather listen to no one else sing "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" or "The Times they Are A-Changin'".
I can think of a few artists who do those songs justice, and ole Bob just ain't one of 'em.......:ksc75smile:

(snip),

Anyway, who sings Bob Dylan best besides Bob?
Try Pete Seeger, Peter Paul and Mary, and Joan Baez amongst a plethora of others.

I went to a venue to listen to Tommy Emmanuel play his guitar..
The opening act was a teenage dude who sang the Bob Dylan songbook in Bob's tone and style.......:triportsad:
I'm just so glad that Tommy's guitar playing is the antithesis of Bob's singing.......:L3000:

Hi all,
Another head-fier suggest I ask my question here. I recently had a chance to visit the Schiitr and was totally blown away by the Yggdrasil/Ragnarok stack. I'd eventually like to acquire these, but there's no way I can get them both at once. I already have an excellent DAC though (Gungnir multibit), so I'm thinking that the Rag will probably contribute the most dramatic change. Only thing is the device is a few years old now and has a pretty glaring omission of a remote control and possibly a unit gain setting. I feel like there could be a new update to the Rag in the works, but Schiit is characteristically tight lipped about it. Does anyone have any information or rumors about a possible Ragnarok update in the near future? I'd hate to buy one only to see a new one come out shortly thereafter.

PS. Jason, if you're listening: please include a remote and a unity gain setting in the new Ragnarok (if one is in the works)!

Depending upon when you purchase a Rok amp, and if they release an updated version, I'm sure you'd be covered, much like the just updated Jggy.

And since the family resemblance between the Gumby and the Jggy is rather strong to begin with, perhaps the 'best' move would be for The Rok amp 1st.

I have both (Jggy & The Rok) and depending upon what amp/HP pairing your currently running The Rok should be a suitable amp especially if you run a nearfield set up as well.

And know that the Jggy is playing with the big boys, which means it has PLENTY of scaleability, but is also dependent upon the rest of the system as well.
Which in terms of its scaleability, also applies to The Rok amp.
