you can download it to files in your IPhone ... it plays Flac files with SW11 - I would be surprised if andoid cant handle Flac meanwhile too
Thanks Defender.

That worked fine.

I like the new bearing too.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Blimey, your system really throws out some deep bass. After about 30 sec I started to wonder if it was a remix. Do you have a concrete floor underneath? Very clear sound too, yet musical.

Anyway, I found it quite close but slightly prefer 1 as well.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Hard to pick between a and d. I like the warmth and tone of A but D is probably making more sense.

Re: Karousel

Bad news for all upgraders: I've heard that Linn has paused all fulfilment of orders as of yesterday until the 24. April. Can one of the dealers perhaps confirm this? And my new LP12 was supposed to ship today :-( Yes, that's a shame. At least they are still open, I heard Naim and Rega shut down ov...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

At first I preferred before, but I think you are onto something and after is easier to make sense of. I suppose I didn't find it conclusive.

Re: Netgear GS108T Power Supply

I think I'd rather listen to music on your PSU Spannko. The Netgear seems too battened down to me and a bit boring. My get out is that I don't have any headphones to use right now so am playing very quietly on laptop speakers. I suppose Linn will have done the best they can within the realms of thei...

Yes I think so as well, another one already on order but, under the circumstances, seems to be delayed.

I have only heard Briks live once in a hifi store in an open room but I knew from the moment I listened to them that I liked them a lot. The fullness of the sound and a singing quality that “sucks” you into the music. Lovely. :-)

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I think maybe the 160 has dipped off in the second recording. So many variables, including the old iphone which is now being used by my daughter to communicate with friends - I sometimes forget to disable the wifi for example. I think unless I record at the same time then too many things can change....

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Both Clips was very close ... I make my decision because of Vocal ... Vocals are so sensitive in reproduction and in second half of the Clip CB 160 there was relatively big difference ... 160 shows better quality in vocal reproduction, beside fact of 3 h warm up ... and as you say, sound is clearly...

OK...that's it! I gotta get me some REM. I miss this album!
It's one of their best I think, particularly side B. Obviously you can easily get a US pressing which is probably even better.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Cheers for the feedback folks and glad you like it Vlado. The 160 is getting better all the time and my preference. The timing of the music just snaps into focus better, despite the absence of a snaps! The seller said it had never been used - not sure how true that is but it's certainly all original...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Received a CB 160 today. Not directly compared to the bold down 160 in the house yet. The 250 has been on for weeks. The 160 has had about 3 hours warm up. 32.5/Snaps/250: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1ja4fw0gmyc569x/IMG_0510%5B1%5D.MOV?dl=0 32.5/CB 160: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7d0ljrfpcte5nir/IMG_05...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I prefer before although not sure what impact using video will have on the recording.

Listening through headphones today and better laptop, I also prefer the new room now.

I prefer the old room but it takes time to make the most of a newly setup system - hopefully it's just that and not the room itself.

Re: Karousel

I was hoping to hear it on Thursday but the UK is pretty much shut down now. Only essential shops allowed to open for customers - i.e. food / medicine. I guess HiFi stores can keep their online activites going, provided the courier companies will support them.
