    Interesting issue with Tidal at force max volume - peaks clipping?

    Recently I purchased Soundsource for Mac OS, which has little level meters that show whether the signal from a specific application is clipping or not. I was using it as the host for a parametric EQ plugin so I could utilise Oratory1990's useful target curves (e.g. Sennheiser HD58x -...

    New Music on Tidal

    Adele 25 is streaming on Tidal now. It sounds great! Pop music never fails to deliver real bass. This album sounds great! I never bought the CD since I don't really buy CDs anymore. I've only heard it in my crappy car stereo. Wow!
