    Do you recall Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders? Their name came from a novel and a Dirk Bogarde film of the same name, which WAS about sensory Deprivation experiments. Back at the time I did read...

    "Why New Music Sucks"

    This video has the most deceptive title I can recall. It covers why that would be a really ignorant way to think. Mary Spender is enjoying how everything is changing and opening the opportunities for...

    The audio market is more a popularity and nostalgia display than a quality driven enterprise. News to no one here I am sure. It seems that in Asia at least 4350s and 4355s are valued much higher that...

    It is complicated (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SoundCloud) but Soundcloud is, for users, a streaming service. It has options for musicians providing content, but streaming by nature does not offer...

    I have also found Tiny Desk Concerts to be a great source of music I was not aware of. I liked it better before Covid interrupted the in office gigs and forced it to "Home" concerts. Bandcamp was...
  11. Kissing Spotify Goodbye and Good Riddance

    I personally don't have this problem with streaming. I look for music myself; I don't have the service make selections for me or use playlists. I sometimes still pay some attention to "similar" music...

    MQA has problems certainly, but Tidal's implementation is especially deceptive and flawed. Glad to see your defection to Qobuz

    ...that it appears Resonessence Labs went out of business some time ago. That explains the lack of information on the internet.

    Resonessence Labs

    It occurs to me that since certain expensive audio brands do sometimes appeal to you, I know of one involved in headphone DAC/amps that is the real deal. The head of this outfit came to AXPONA a few...
