  1. I've bought CDs and loaded on NAS they sound much better than the albums do when streaming. I don't talk about things I haven't heard on my system. Not snake oil
  2. I was a Qobuz subscriber for years, then switched to Tidal when it arrived in Australia. I've now been a Qobuz sublime subcriber for 2 year. Buying hirez albums as a Sublime subscriber are cheaper than CDs. Files of any rez sound better than streaming when played from NAS drive. Tidal don't sell files. Qobuz sells hirez files. If I really like an album and it is on hirez I buy it from Qobuz at a discount (about $15AUS or less) and the sound leaves any streamed sound for dead.
  3. These is certainly in good nick. Wish my remotes looked as good at that after 8yrs. GLWTS.
  4. Thanks Steffen. I've been clicking on the three dots next to album details. I listen to albums. I guess I'll have to drop down to tracks for file info. Believe me 1.7 displayed a file added date for NAS files. I know because I make digital copies of vinyl and I kept track of the file added dates to compare phonos, cartridges, etc. Hopefully future Roon updates will provide more features.
  5. Some of my Qobuz albums show the date added, but not all. It seems Roon misses some info. No NAS files show date added to NAS. I've gone through album displays but can't find anything to show date added like it used to.
  6. which tab in Roon shows this info? Date added used to be next to release date.
  7. Do you store files on a hard drive? Does Roon show the date the album was added? It used to do that. It is important to show the date the file was added so you can keep track of the history of when the file was added, for when you upgrade your system. There are always features which are more important to some than they are to others. People should stop trying to trivialise what is important to others.
  8. How long have you had Roon? 1.7 was only a few days ago and you can't remember if it displayed date you NAS files were added? Do you have NAS files.? Are you simply trolling my posts to find fault?
  9. It does not show the date a file is added to the NAS. Also discography of artists in Qobuz are not fully disclosed as a default. You have to click a tab to disclose the full discograph and the discograph no longer show album ratings, you have to click on the album to show the rating. I wish there was a way to go back to 1.7. Roon 1.8 was developed for those who stream tracks and don't have music on a hard drive.
  10. Roon 1.8 is awful. I want to revert to Roon 1.7. I no longer recommend Roon as suitable software if you hold music on a NAS. Room is focused on streaming. The curating of hard drive files is now mediocre.
  11. The Qobuz Australian catalogue is already better than Tidal.
  12. It sounds better. Less etching, more natural, more detailed. Not better by a large margin but easily recognised. The comparison was easy for me to make because I effected the update during a music session in the middle of listening to a track. I probably would not have heard a difference if I updated before a fresh session. The interface changes has pros and cons. For me it's the sound that matters.
  13. I used Deoxit Gold on my connectors. It is quite cheap at JayCar. I can't remember if there was much improvement, but I put it on when the connecters were new and it is meant to keep connections clean. I probably need to give them another clean.
  14. Vicoustic panels installed. The Roomtune panels behind the listening seats made the most difference. Vicoustic reduced noisefloor and improved timbral depth. All set up and room problems solved. System now sounds as good as I can get it with current setup IMO.
