Do the likes of Spotify and tidal even tell you the master of what you are listening to? Or is just the album listed? I actually prefer a lot of the original masters and have a local used CD shop which makes it nice to grab a certain master.

Good mastering from a good source is important but, bitrate still matters.

Won't be on again for two days guys, I just need a 6th person now, 5 total so far with me included so far. If anyone wants to be the 6th to join us for Spotify discount just PM me, will get it all sorted this weekend, Sunday probably. I will PM everyone and organize it all when I get everyone re-confirmed as well.

Cheers.

I would as this is a good deal, but I already have spotify premium for $5 month as college faculty.

I love it and don't feel like rebuilding my playlists.

From what I understand, your accounts remain the same. That would be a deal breaker to me if that's the case. I believe it literally just lumps the user's accounts into a 'family plan' essentially.

I don't even use Spotify, let alone even know if the music they have would interesting me, so...... Nope, definitely wouldn't be me.


.....So for "fun" I downloaded it. Interesting to see that the first two artists I searched actually do exist on it (Combichrist, Grendel). Apparently a bunch of my other favourites are on there too (Suicide Commando, Hocico, and therefore probably several others). Okay, let's try a few others.... Angerfist (yup), N-Vader (nope), Masters of Hardcore (pulls up their albums), Aesthetic Perfection (even pulls up his most recent single), Pythius (yup), G-Ohm (yup).

Such a pity that my main "dug through too many crates" favourite track IS NOT ON THERE!.... RECON_002, aka Sunchase Marazmatik/Save Us (Save Us is.... Oh gawds, a looooovely song).

I might play around with this for a bit, we'll see.

I thought I'd post a link here to a classified I have for a complete sim racing setup. I just sent my headphones (AlphaDogs) in to Mr.Speakers because of the AlphaPrime upgrade they've started to run. Unfortunatly for me, my Essence STX II spit the bit 2 months ago, and Asus wont repair it because I bought it from a vendor that sold me a non-US part. doh.gif

Im running the ad because Im hoping to trade or sell it for enough to pick up a decent amp/dac. Here's the ad.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1606650/fanatec-sim-cockpit

Does anybody have exp. with the AP's??? If I am to buy and amp/dac, the ones I've been looking at are....

1. JDS Labs Element

2. Chord Mojo

3. Burson Lycan.

4. Completely open to suggestion!!!

thank you!!!

Schiit Fulla will power the Mad/Alpha Dogs. It is the only budget portable DAC/AMP that can. Z-Reviews can also back this up, check out his review of the Schiit Fulla on Youtube (his main cans are the alpha dogs).


@whitewulfe I still need a 6th so if you change your mind let me know... and yes we all get to keep our individual accounts, I looked it up. thumb.gif

spotify:track:5Fas8gi45KzNptbwV9uCiK also that song on any of my cans, the bass is nom nom

@badtaylorx

The mojo is fantastic. I had one as part of a review tour and ended up buying one. My one caveat is with anything T50 based that it may not have enough power. On tracks with lower recording levels it showed it was running out of power when I was really cranking it. (I can link my review later). If you generally listen to newer music it wouldn't be a problem.

Zach of ZMF really likes the element for his cans (also T50 based). No issues with power.

I am back in the game boys.

I bought some Denon AHD2000 for $223 shipped used from Amazon Warehouse deals with my Prime account, they will be here Sunday. Going to try them with stock pads vs my ZMF Lambskin pads as well, from the reviews of the Fostex TH-X00 Ebony, people say they sound pretty much on par with the D2000's... so yeah, I may have very well stumbled upon my end game if I just got some Ebony TH-X00 for $223 biggrin.gif

Will be interesting to compare the bottomless deep bass experience of the T20RP and the D2000 though. biggrin.gif Must admit I haven't been this excited in weeks...

The addiction is real. band.gif
