Are you happy with your Nad ampflier?
I really love the C 368 amp/dac. Transparent sound out of pure blackness. I've owned 5 or 6 NAD's and never had an issue with any of them. 3150, 7150, 325 BEE, T 743, T755.

I'd like the M10 but it only has 1 set of speaker terminals.

?Or is only an online service? I’ll stick to my claims.
All major record labels are supporting MQA. Huge catalogues are being mastered for MQA, Sony, Universal, Warner Brothers all will have MQA catalogues.

Re: Tidal vs cd and MQA albums

I can hear the flames coming... Bring it on. No flames here. I do think that higher sample and bit rates *can* result in superior sound. To my ears 24/192 is better than 16/44.1 in most cases. I own several master recordings (non-MQA) at higher sample rates than red book and they sound better. I do...

Re: Bluesound can't handle mesh points?

As another data point, I also have a NAD 368 with the MDC module (version 2 if that's relevant). Initially had it wired with a Powerline adapter that worked well, no issues with Tidal, Radio Paradise or my NAS-based library. I recently connected a WiFi extender to the Powerline adapter and set the 3...

Re: Tidal

Wel,finally I’ve tried Tidal. Disappointed. The sound is way to low. And yes and I know a good recording has great dynamics but this is just low from tidal. About the same volume as tone controls enabled in Spotify settings if using AirPlay as a “source”. But what was really strange,I could still h...

Hello,
I found a song on YouTube that I would like to play through my Bluesound speakers. I've downloaded the YouTube app but I can not figure out a way to play the music through my speakers. Please help. Thank you.
Depending on the model you own, Bluetooth or Airplay will work.

Re: Newbie Node 2i questions

4. Very subjective question: I'm currently streaming Tidal Masters through an Apple TV to my receiver (Harman/Kardon AVR 146…sigh) via a TOSLINK cable, which outputs to Paradigm Monitor 7 speakers — not super high end audiophile gear. How much improvement might I hear if I ditch the Apple TV for th...

Just Main Mix and Mellow Mix
Same two are the only ones available on the RP website now.

Re: Add Playlists and Sections to Play Queue

Areas like "New Songs" in Tidal for example are no playlists. Cool thing is, you can simply play the first song and it plays the whole list. It would be awesome if you could add them to the play-queue in some way (by right-clicking on the title new songs?) and add last and so fourth. New Songs in T...
