    Amazon HD

    Don't think I will bother. I get sick of big greedy corporations wanting a slice of everything. I have used Deezer for years and I have recently subscribed to Tidal as it it built into my Naim Muso. Pretty impressed with Tidal so far. I haven't had any problems using Tidal with a Chromecast but it was very patchy when I used it with Deezer. What is good about the Amazon launch is that it might bring the price of other services down. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  2. Another one here who doesn't like either musically. As most have said, EP was important at the time and he changed music but I don't think 50s rock and roll has aged very well in comparison to some other genres that are still relatable today. I would probably go for EP though, purely because he could sing, whereas I think EC is a good songwriter but doesn't have a great voice. In terms of image, if that matters, give me C's basic approach over P's razmataz anyday. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  3. For the OP, Auralic was mentioned. I had looked at an Auralic but apparently they don't have an android app so if you are an android user this is something to be aware of. I was looking at the Auralic G1, which I like because it has a screen while the Aries Mini doesn't. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  4. I've just been reading about this issue and apparently you can get an Ethernet adapter for it which some say resolves the dropout issue. Might give it a go. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  5. I agree with this. It does have a digital out that sounds better with an external dac but when I have used it like that the signal drops out a lot which is really annoying. The analogue out works steadily but sounds very average. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. Is it worth contacting the label to complain? They might provide you with a new code. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  7. Agreed, it is brilliant, Pieces of a Man in particular.
  8. Great spot. I have just ordered it along with another album I wanted for £14.71 so got the total just above the £20 minimum for free delivery. Cheers mate Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

  11. Yes definitely. I should have made clear I was talking about electronics/appliances etc. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  12. Everything cost more in relation to wages in the 80s. If you look at an Argos catalogue from that time it is surprising how much things cost. The prices are often not that different to what you would pay today. Globalised manufacturing has had a huge impact on consumer affordability.

    Is HiFI Dead?

    Streaming, high res digital? Loads of innovation going on there. In fact a streamer or digital player bought today is often outdated within a year so I don't agree that there's no new technology. Lots of development going on with turntables too. I do agree about the age thing though. Younger people are much more bothered about convenience than quality. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

  15. I agree with this. I find endorsements from other members useful. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
