    Today's Jazz Playlist

    creating a "feeding frenzy" hits the nail on the head. it's been sad to see the devolution of RSD.

    great point. that effect has turned me off from RSD. i now expect that any title i want will be gone by the time i get there. and will appear on ebay starting that day, at a much higher price. you are right - creating demand can backfire.

    re the price gougers - this gouging by re-sellers seems to be made possible by labels pressing too small runs that don't fully meet buyer demand. they certainly know their business better than i do - perhaps its beneficial to create an atmosphere where for fans the pressure is to work hard to...

    new thread for this would be good. very distinct from the trad end of the jazz spectrum. "sharp elbows" might better be in a smaller more dedicated home. imho, of course.

    EPI Speakers

    stacked advents blew my mind a few years ago. in a good way. have been wondering if stacking other speakers would have similar effect. have you tried stacking epi's?

    I Wreck Me

    "cap coupled" is something i was not aware of til a few years ago. i was finding that some very inexpensive gear was sounding better to me than higher-rated far more expensive gear. turns out the the ones i was liking are cap coupled. there is an openness, spaciousness to their sound...

    Lii Audio F-15

    bass performance is critical for me too. in my experience bass is good on the sapphires at all listening levels. its not a thudding in your face bass. its a natural flowing bass sound. i can pick up the bass lines well. warning: the sapphires really expose amplifiers. the sound is quite...

    Lii Audio F-15

    ditto. i just got a pair of the sapphires that are still in their 400hr secondary break-in period, and the transparency, soundstage and prat are exceptional. additionally, spatial is great to deal with (as i'm sure is decware, of course).

    Does Roon make sense for me?

    im just now in the process of getting started on streaming. im able to get spotify to connect to my streamer, but not qobuz. what you said is probably why. its a head scratcher for me why qobuz would not go directly to the streamer but would instead require a 3rd party service to do that.
