What do you want me to do Fly, take a load?

DJ., so could a tablet with downloaded music be classed as a server?

Sometimes one needs to take more than two. It all depends on the strength of course.

Would have thought Paracetamol  would all have been the same strength, despite the trade names.

I suppose it could but what are you downloading music as . MP3? WAV?, FLAC?..and what is the tablet 'serving' the music to?  I've got a pretty decent hi-fi system, so the whole point for me was to be able to get all of my CDs and a lot of my vinyl into one digital 'store', with little or no loss of sound quality, so I can play anything easily and create playlists.  Frankly, nothing in my system sounds better than my record player, but the Innuos ZEN runs it pretty close and scores on convenience.

 

P.S.  Congratulations on your ascent to the throne your Kingness..

DJ.. interesting stuff, what bit rate do you burn your vinyl to CD conversions at? I remember the 20 bit super enconding disks that were very good. My vinyl conversions were all done at 24/96. Personally i couldn't tell the difference  using 192.

24 bit always sounded vastly superior to me.

This was over a decade ago, sadly developed, in recent years hearing issues so no longer up to speed on such things..

Surprised is one way of looking at it...

I convert vinyl using a Yamaha Hard Disc CD recorder.   There's nothing in the specs to indicate what bitrate is used by the Analogue to Digital Converter in the machine, but to me the results are very close to the results from directly re-playing vinyl on my Michell Orbe, with the top Audiomods Arm, a Dynavector DV17D3 MC cartridge, and via an EAR  834 valve phono stage. That's a pretty serious vinyl set up and the Yamaha certainly does it justice.

I transfer the resulting CDs to my Zen Mini server, using FLAC, because I'm not convinced there's any audible difference between it and WAV, and it both takes up less space, and works better with Metadata etc.

Just finished my housework for the day. I loathe housework, never seems any point as it is there again the next day as if it had never been done. If I ever win the lottery after getting a house by the sea with a wood (with an oak tree), pond (with a weeping willow, newts and sticklebacks),  field, more dogs, a donkey, goat etc the next thing on the list is a cleaner. Sure I can find more important and interesting things to do than housework.
Anyway sorry I digress, decided to have a coffee and (dunkable) nice biscuits. Had a play on a game on my phone. Normally the adverts are annoying, but this time there were some very interesting ones.

The first was a light pen which you can draw pictures with on a special board. Quite intriguing. The second was a screen you unfolded to put in front of your phone so if you watching things on your phone (I don’t it’s a phone) it magnifies the picture onto the screen. Quite a nifty idea really I suppose. 
The third was a paint roller which you put paint in and then use. Doesn’t drip apparently and judging by the advert you can do a wall very very quickly and the paint doesn’t look streaky. Also has some gadgets (I love gadgets) for doing corners and up to the ceiling without getting paint on it. I am very tempted by this, could save having to get a decorator in and the cost. As with most houses when you move into them the colour scheme isn’t what I would have, my kitchen is blood red and black! Will google it and see what I can find out about it. Only thing is I would have to go up a ladder, not my favourite thing to do, or perhaps I could erect scaffolding?

Just had a fascinating hour with an old 'Photo Album,,,,showing my 1st cousin twice removed (thanks again Brew) photos of old relations who she didnt ever see,,,,even her Great and Great Great Granddads,,,sat on a Motorbike in Skegness in 1948,,,then lots of Pictures of her Great Aunts including my Mother,who she also never met,,,i enjoyed showing her and explaining who everyone was.

 

                        It was only by chance that she met my Granddaughter whilst working for Airline company's,,,they got talking and realised they were related,,,.       Also i did'nt realise iv'e still got many relatives on Bestwood estate.
