Tidal login problem using Oppo Sonica
The same happened with my Oppo app I used for  my 105 /Tidal streaming. Oppo customer service said it was something on Tidals part, not theirs, and there was nothing to do about it, but as @soix pointed out, the M Connect app is now working just ... 
Denafrips FPGA Firmware Update
Slightly off topic and sorry for tangentially hijacking the thread, but how would you all suggest I stream direct from a tablet to the Ares2? Any usb c to usb b adapters you’d recommend? Or should I keep streaming Tidal via wifi through my Oppo 10... 
Sat front row at the symphony...
@newbee " ...she was ’blown away’ and exhausted! I should have prepped her better, but I just assumed.....! :-)" I don’t think I’ve ever had that problem with a date.    
My Oppo 105 finally bricked. Streamer suggestions?
@designsfx  yes. I do appreciate the advice. You gave it after I had emailed Oppo and I am happy they said the same thing. I don't really see a sound difference at all. I was just unclear as to how that interface worked. Nothing spotty. And throug...

@rettrussell That's unfortunate. Have you emailed customer support at Oppo directly - service at oppodigital dot com?  
Which Songs Make Good Ringtones?
@whiterockman +1 Hilarious! Don't deviate from these posts, okay?  
Audio Alchemy Nostalgia Trip
Great post! Especially how we make these sonically emotional attachments to a particular piece of equipment that just sounded right to us and always will.  For me it's the Reference 3A de Capo's I had, sold, mourned, found, and have again. And, l... 
My Oppo 105 finally bricked. Streamer suggestions?
@mahler123 @tony1954 @theo Good advice and suggestions from all. I was just about to pull the trigger last night on a wonderful used deal on a Cambridge CXN on the other site when I get this reply form Oppo:  "We've had similar reports regarding ... 
My Oppo 105 finally bricked. Streamer suggestions?
@soix Thank you. yes, I contacted them (tho it's a Sunday so they won't reply until the work week) and am hopeful for a reply. They do say on their site that they would continue to support their products, so mad kudos to them.  @jl35 I've been co... 
My Oppo 105 finally bricked. Streamer suggestions?
@theo Thanks for the sound advice. Yes, Ive hecked netowrk and also installed and tried to use the app on several other device, all with the same "Login - Client not found" message. I've emailed Oppo support but don't know how much they can do as ... 
Music industry perspective
@tablejockey Everyone thinks drummers are an invasive species.   
Ray Charles - "Rap is not music"
@rockysantoro you mean like all the hard rock lyrics that celebrate drugs, misogyny, and hedonism? I assume you don't listen to them either. Dude, stay out of the conversation until you know the subject.   
Klipsch Jubilee & Klipschorn Experience
They sound wonderful, but I really couldn't get past the background chatter, especially during Vivaldi  
Ray Charles - "Rap is not music"
However, I can kind of see where he's coming from. Yes, there are only 12 notes in the scale, but how we envision those 12 notes and what we find to be pleasing to the ear and acceptable as a paradigm it's completely based on our Western upbringin... 
Some more modern jazz piano trios
The Bad plus is certainly an awe inspiring, high energy trio. And like I wrote in the original post, Triosence is getting a lot of streaming and vinyl play on my system the past few months
