    E Bay: What Would You DO?

    Don't you think the Banks are very suspicious of large sums of cash being deposited, money laundering and all that...?

    E Bay: What Would You DO?

    So how does that work on larger items that cannot be sent via courier and have to be collected, say a caravan or horse box etc?

    Sound Quality from Spotify

    I'm not the most technical person but I will have a go at answering. The Pro-Ject streamer has v-tuner built in and picks up the normal web stream which is not yet available in flac. I don't have a SBT but my understanding is that there is a facility on Radio Paradise specifically for the SBT which does stream in flac. If anyone can expand on my rather explanation, please feel free to chip in.

    Sound Quality from Spotify

    I have had Spotify for about 18 months and it appears that I am getting [flac] sound quality although Spotify currently do not provide this service. I have listed below a couple of screenshots from the Pro-Ject app which normally is very accurate at showing the quality of the signal it is receiving. Radio 2 and Radio Paradise are what I would expect and the third is an album streamed from a [flac] file on the nas. The fourth is the same album from Spotify showing the same signal quality. I have to say I cannot tell the difference in sound quality between [flac] files from the nas or from Spotify. I know Spotify had some [flac] trials a while back, do you think I have somehow been involved in these trials and they have forgotten to turn it off? It's starting to freak me out a bit !! robin
