    Raspberry Pi 4b + RoPieeXL + USB + Toppings D50 = Poor Sound?

    If you're going to re-image the RPi with Ropieee, do it without enabling XL. This will still work with Roon and it has the benefit of cutting out additional things that might be causing a problem. If you get stuck, you could always post on the Roon Community Forums. The designer of Ropieee is...

    Agreed. I'm out of here. Going to listen to some.... new music!

    Music is dead.

    Well there is evidence that suggests the opposite of what you believe is actually true. Streaming is now by far the largest way in which people consume music. Spotify is by far the largest streaming service. Spotify's most streamed artists are not Radiohead, Nirvana, Springsteen or any of your...

    Music is dead.

    An absolute Amen to that! Kid A is a masterpiece that betters even OK Computer (imo). Can't work out why OP would praise Radiohead as "old music" - A Moon Shaped Pool (2016) is new(ish) and a great listen. I get the feeling that Thom Yorke will always be pushing the boundaries until the day he...

    I am a fan of a country music and I can tell you that it isn't dead. The past isn't coming back (Merle Haggard, Hank Williams etc.), but the future is yet to be written. All forms of popular culture (of which country music is one) change and evolve. That's the nature of popular culture!

    You've just defined nostalgia.

    I thought you were objecting to new music. By definition the new Dinosaur Jr album is new music.

    I'm not sure in what world Radiohead are not a "modern band". They're still producing cutting edge and innovative material. New music is new music, regardless of the age of the people making it.

    Just relax and realise that your Technics LP is not the summation of all recently produced music. There's some amazing stuff out there.
