  1. Further information: I have 3 of these cables for some unfathomable reason. All in excellent condition. I would rather sell as one lot.

  2. Further information: 1.5m figure 8 termination.

  3. Shoddy work on my part. I meant to say, that by repute the QNAP relationship with Roon is more seamless. I love the Synology interface and can live with having to find the button to rescan the database in the Roon software. I hope that is clearer
  4. I am running a Synology DS715 with 2 x 12Gb Red drives. It also stores Time Machine backups and all my photos. It has been pretty much bullet-proof. I run Roon on a separate server. (In the background on the right) Negatives.: I am really not convinced that you could ( or should) try to run Roon on this device. It seems that people just get into strife with underspeccing the hardware for Roon. I think you need to commit Synology seems incapable of working automatically with Roon to update the data base if you add new music. You have to manually rescan the disk. Very
  5. Hey thanks. They are pretty cool arent they. Don't thank me. thank NPR
  6. Absolute find of the month. Found it on NPR podcast New Music. The closest I can think of is Dead Can Dance, but it is a bit more classical and less histrionic. Complex, and a bit eclesiastical. Truly beautiful. Bandcamp is your friend here. YouTube maybe as well. In the words of the late, great Molly Melsdrum: " Do your self a favour..."
  7. Wrong spot, moved to currently spinning. Sheepish Grin
  8. This is a delightful powerful and dreamy album. My favourite of this year.
  9. I agree this whole business is deeply frustrating. Even sometimes on artist's websites they will not point you to where you can download their music. I have found that a combined search on Bandcamp, ZDigital and HDTracks, in that order, finds the majority of things I might want to download. It is really annoying when you want to give them money, but they don't provide you with a mechanism
  10. I have a "need" to put a headphone amp in my office and am looking for some suggestions and/or thoughts. Current running Roon on a Nucleus. Most music I listen to is from my NAS, with some from Tidal. I have an unused Bluesound Node 2. Current headphones are Sennheiser HD800s and Focal Clear. My thoughts are: 1. Use Node. Buy amp, maybe Dac Amp such as the HDV 820. Use the DAC in that. 2. Use DAC in Node, get simpler non-DAC amp. Maybe Schiit Jotunheim 3. Buy Jotunheim with DAC. Stream via Macbook/USB to Jot. Cant use the Blunode for this as it h
  11. Still a bit new to this 21st Century vinyl caper. Back in the day you got a few dud albums and sucked it up. I have bought a brand new Dead Can Dance album. One of the discs appears to fairly bounce up and down indicating significant warping of the disc. I can't detect deleterious effect on the sound, but you just know it is providing an extra challenge for accurate music reproduction. (can't seem to attach a short video) Should I accept this as withing limits or send back? What would you do? Thanks for the advice.
