If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
AI will do great things for us, like modeling new drugs (already happening), working out the tech of fusion energy (huge and already happening and a possible answer to the climate change/energy problem). Like fire that burned flesh but also raised...

I wish I could simplify the UI.  Remove stuff I don't use.

@mikhailark I don’t know but streaming, even on Qobuz, never sounds as good as the CD. And I’m not the only one saying so. And the problem is that I think most people buy these expensive streamers thinking they will sound just as good as CDs and t... 
HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SYSTEM IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS
I agree with fpomposo  regarding sound quality of streaming vs the local rip.   But yes, Knopfler sounds great.   And I like Bela Fleck and the Flecktones Cosmic Hippo and any Art of Noise for some audio fireworks.

Streaming is overhyped, along with streamers. It’s good in theory but it’s still not ready for prime audiophile sound time.  Despite what the mostly useless  measurements say.

Streaming - even at "CD quality"  just doesn't sound as good as local CD.   So if folks are expecting it to they will probably be disappointed.   https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=cd+vs+streaming+sound+quality   https://www.youtube....

I have the A8 and before this the Wiim mini and the pro. The problem is streaming in general. It just doesn’t sound as good as CDs.   Even on Qobuz. The CDs that I have ripped and in the internal SSD of the A8 sound great. Best digital sound I hav... 
Eversolo DMP-A8 vs iPhone plugged directly to integrated amp - why no difference?
I have the A8 and it’s the best sounding digital source I’ve ever had. Have all my CDs on the internal SSD. Makes for a very convenient way to access all my 400 or so CDs. High rez streaming from Qobuz sounds great. The DAC settings are subtle but... 
Digital LP’s
^Because it's higher rez and sounds better than cd.  
Digital LP’s
CDs are never high rez. They are constrained to 16/44 . LPs are usually mastered from 24/96 or higher, so at least have a chance at being true high rez. Everyone seems to miss this point. It matters a lot.  
Digital LP’s
@abnerjack Because it’s essentially the only way to get high resolution recordings into the house. The closest high rez digital gets is from places like Qobuz which streams some music at 24/196, and SACD and DVD audio which I believe is roughly th... 
Digital LP’s
  Most modern recordings are made digitally, these days. They're just made at much higher resolutions and bitrates than what comes out on CD (16/44) and various other download formats. Usually, the digital masters will use a resolution of at lea... 
Digital LP’s
Virtually all vinyl is now mastered from digital. My best sounding vinyl are these. It’s all about the bit rate of the mastering. If it’s redbook (16/44) it will sound no better than CD, which IMO is not very good.   Most albums are now mastered a... 
Why do Wav and Flac Files Sound Different?
Now you tell me Dave and Troy !. After the OP  I re ripped all 400 CDs to wave.  Now I have to re-rip back to FLAC so I can have cover art again.    I wish you guys would make up my mind.  Maybe I'll just wait for the thread to stop and count the... 
Why do Wav and Flac Files Sound Different?
and I just ripped about 400 CDs in FLAC at the "5" setting.....onto the SSD of my Eversolo A8 So now I want to A/B the rip with the original CD, because the rips sound fine to me but haven't compared them back to back.
