Hi,

Anyone interested in doing this again? I have just signed up for the trial and it really is as good as everyone says

So are there still chaps wanting to get the 5 User 20% Discount? I am keen and ready to buy.

Man I am all too eager - jumped in when JR said there are no more discounts available.
Just purchased my lifetime membership.

Iím ok thanks. All in and currently getting to grips with the architecture. So far I am impressed and can see the appeal it has over JRiver. LMS has served me well. This takes it to the next level.

If you can gather 3 people wanting to buy lifetime membership there's 10% discount in it.  This has been the case for almost as long as I can remember.

Sorry I could just not wait - I have three days off work this year and I wanted to get setup and playing as fast as possible.
Already scanned my library and it ran really quickly as I possibly don't have too much content but Tidal is making up for this very quickly.
Also scanned using all 8 cores so maybe that helped. Really enjoying the experience so far.

No to get Roon to see my SBC. - All sorted and Man is this awesome... :2thumbs:

Thanks Tony - Bringing back such good memories from when I used to DJ, reading up on Artists, collaborations with others, history etc.

So much better than anything i have ever had the pleasure of using. So, also very surprised as to the quality of the Tidal tracks from Roon Core on Mac Mini to Squeezebox over WiFi. The 20/20 Fibre does help usability. Truly impressive. Still have a little electrical noise to get rid of but it's endemic across the whole house I am afraid to say.
Its an intermittent "Buzz" in short bursts if less than a second. Mmmmmm. Filter the mains supply? Even hear in in the ceiling fans when on.

Aaron, the 'buzz' you hear is quite probably the Municipality using a ripple relay to switch your geyser on or off during peak periods. They send short tone bursts over the AC mains every so often to households throughout the day in order to accomplish this. Are you aware of a little 'black box' in or around your AC DB board?

I am indeed, I reported it as faulty as the wires are bridged, yes I found it that way shortly after moving in.

Bridged wires means that someone got annoyed due to no hot water in the geyser and therefore shorted the unit out. Illegal to do so, so perhaps keep a record that you reported it soon after moving into the house. If no council action, I would rather just leave things as they are, at least you will have hot water on demand.
