Re: What music do you use to demonstrate high-res

The DSOTM Non to Blackface Harvest sounds amazing even if only in 16/bit44kHz. Steely Dan sounds amazing if it’s high res, vinyl or cd. The MFSL DSOTM CD is also amazing in 16/bit. Yes, they have much better technology now days to record an album. But they are so loud my head hurts. Back in the good...

Re: How to get the most out of MQA?

I have tested Tidal MQA files. An external dac if not MQA supported well as reported here only unfold to 96kHz. The Node2i using the analog RCA outputs well decode MQA in 192kHz. In my humble opinion Tidal is too expensive in the long run,and all the MQA albums did not sound great. Some amazing,some...

Alexa

From my understanding Alexa is google answer to Apple Siri. If I wanna tell my Node2i to play music from Spotify for an example. Can I simply use Siri from my iPad Air 2015 model and say: ‘Play Aja”? But I’ll probably have to use Airplay 2 then. I don’t like Apple Music. You can’t hear the cymbals p...

Re: Apple iMabook air

That’s way I wanna rip the best cd pressings of my favorite groups. And use file sharing. Spotify,Tidal and so on don’t have those. And that’s a sad.

Re: Apple iMabook air

Thanks, yes I saw that Apple had gone up with 60 prosent more virus problems. Annoying. But I have also looked at hp pc laptop (I don’t remember the model number in my head now). But it cost around the same as a Node2i, a bit more. It has an optical DVD burner also. If I buy that I well of course th...

Re: When Tone settings of the Node2 are "on" volume goes down...

Not necessarily. You can use want you like. That’s why BS has the tone control options. I don’t use them personally though. But still. If a user needs to use them it’s nice to have that option. The volume is lowered because of not sacrificing the headroom. And digital tone controls are easier to man...

Re: Unable to connect to 2.4ghz Channel 13.

I have a friend who wants to use BS multi room solution. 3 NODE2i. I did tell him that the wireless chip/card is very sensitive compared to Apple TV and so on. So I recommended a Lan solution for him. Is there way he can use a router and use Lan cables. If he has one in the living room and up stairs...

Apple iMabook air

Well I guess I haven been a bit of naive naive about Apple don’t having problems virus problem. I I’m gonna buy me self a Samsung T5 SDD 500 GB from a respected forum member here. You know how you are.😁😎. And a SuperDrive for Cd ripping. And use XLO for pre emphasis cds (perhaps I’ll have to use som...
