NOT HAPPY with my mid-range hifi system
Hello - this is a follow up from my previous topic "Happy with my mid-range hifi system"
The REASON I'm now unhappy is simulaneously a rant aboút squeezebox touch.
I thought getting a touch would be the final piece of the jigsaw - and that I'd convert all my discs to flac and live happily ever after - but this has not happened.
The logitech has a community of people trying to tweak and fix it to make it better and more audiophile. Obviously I want my touch to sound as good as possible so yesterday I got into a 12 hour odysey of trying to do all the things that people suggest. I have now come to the conclusion that I shouldn't have to do this - or worry about this - having just bought a piece of hi fi equipment. What audio kit buyer wants to be knee deep in terms like:
"kernal" "root" "factory reset" "tt -w" "mod" "winSCP" for 12 hours? I ask you!
The constant draw to improve the thing has left me feeling dead inside. After several factory resets of the device I compared it to my CD transport and felt that it was indeed lacking in comparison.
So now the process of converting all my CDs to FLAC seems like a bad idea - and I'm sending the touch back. I think.
Instead I will buy some CD cleaner - sort out my CDs - and spend the refund money on new CDs. I think.
Anyone caring to reinstate my bubble please write to this address.
