"Even Theil (sic) went out of business." Classic disiformation in the context of this discussion. Thiel went out of business because after Jim Thiel died his partner cashed in by selling to a group of clueless financial investors who summarily dis... 
Aurender and Tidal hanging up
Hi All, Aurender technical support contacted me and said they are ready to investigate the issues (much like Keith - Conductor App freezes and Tidal dropouts) I have been have experiencing, seemingly made worse since installing the latest software...

Keith,I have had continuous problems with Conductor App freezes when streaming Tidal since installing the latest software on my N100H. I turned in a ticket and Eric responded with an offer to “downgrade it to the previous version”. I was hoping th...

Ideas for my next DAC....?
The OP was very specific in his requirements and the Oppo Sonica meets only one of those three regardless of its sound quality. Do people even bother to read the original post anymore or just view every thread as a vehicle to tout their favored ge...
