that doesn't do as I described at all....it just changes the main windown list of songs...unless I'm double clicking my playlist the wrong 'source' column somehow
I need a player that will convert PCM files to DSD and send them via DoP to an outboard DAC that converts DSD files, only.
On Linux, that means HQPlayer. It's expensive. The interface seems designed by someone who thinks about everything in a way that would never occur to me. But it does the job for now.
When there's an add-on for MPD that will do PCM-to-DSD for all files, I'll migrate to that.
If you're on Windows and have the same need as me and also need bit-perfect output via USB to your outboard DAC, your choices are JRiver and foobar.
I totally went and downloaded the latest Winamp after posting that...
ah the good old days **rattles cane**
iTunes is sort of like a stubborn child...it will do everything else before the right thing...
I use iTunes of course
One place iTunes still hasn't caught up to Winamp's late 90s releases..."playlist"
See, if you never used Winap by default it had two windows that listed your music files...one was a "library" which listed all your songs (in a file tree if you wanted IIRC). The other was you "playlist" which was...the songs you were playing in order.
You could of course save a cool playlist, and open it...all your saved "playlists" were also listed in the "library" window. You could have two "playlist" windows open at the same time...resizing each as needed...
I know iTunes tried w/ their little "up next" thing but it's 5 abstraction layers and 10 clicks too many...
Features like keyless entry are apparently run by that computer and so it never goes into a deep sleep state.
That is an utterly unsatisfying explanation in a world with hardware interrupts.
A typical high end mobile phone with wifi and 3G connections and background sync is more like 1 or 2W maximum (averaged over a day, of course).
And they will wakeup from deep sleep if you press a button.
I do, however, happen to know people, like myself, who may well be interested in such an 'expensive' vehicle (my current car is a BMW7) , bur also have some real-life issues, like weekend homes, where they like to switch the power off,
While you're there? If not, take the car with you. If so, then install a small off-grid maintenance solar system. You've already got kooky habits.
streets in cities where they like to park for more than a few days without a handy power socket, etc.
You'd park a 7-series on the street for days? Not me.
I remain unconvinced, 1100w (per day - which I call when no one else does
I agree. The computer should sleep when not in use. That's excessive.
Welcome to the world of cars which are not astoundingly expensive. The 2000+ Astro will drain the battery if you leave the keys in the ignition. Apparently, so will the 1992+ Ford F250, and it doesn't even have a BCM! Nobody was sending techs 'round for those problems, either.
The problem with the 12 volt battery is exactly what caused all the problems with the review car that John Broder wrote about. Hmm, I guess Broder might not have been the big liar that Musk and his gang of fanboys painted him out to be.
Nope. This problem is with the car sitting still. That was a complaint about the car running out of battery precisely when it told the driver that it would, after he failed to charge it when it told him to. Broder is still a liar.
I'm certain this is absolutely pointless to say now, but most of those setups were designed so that spring pressure had to be overcome to close the lenses; that way, if the mechanism did fail, it *should* fail-safe to the open position.
Well, no. Not in the Nissan. Like most imports, the Nissan uses a worm gear motor to actuate the headlights, or at least, it did from the eighties to the nineties. It was true in my 1984 300ZX, and it was true in my 1989 240SX, so I'm quite sure it was also true in the 1986 Pulsar. The motor pack has an arm on it like a windshield wiper, and a short pushrod attaches with small ball joints. The best part of the whole thing is that on the top of the motor there's a small knob in the same brick-red color as the fuel injector harness connectors. If your pop-up headlights fail, then you just disconnect the electrical connector if necessary and turn the knob to raise or lower the headlight. Since it's a worm gear drive it takes quite a few revolutions, but that's not a serious problem.
That's just stupid. It won't hurt anyone to wait 20 seconds for the computers to boot up.
That's just stupid. Not only might it hurt someone, but there's a third way: sleep mode. Modern computers can sleep on truly wispy amounts of power. What kind of chip did they use, a Nacho?
This begs the question, is the fuel cell technology in fact less destructive than whatever would normally have been used? A typical high-end hobbyist drone today uses the very clean and recyclable LiFePO4 chemistry, which also has more recharge cycles than previous Li-Ion technologies. Fuel cells are often made of exotic metals in high-energy processes. Most fuel cells are hydrogen cells, and most hydrogen is cracked from natural gas in an energy-intensive process. I know that Protonex works with hydrogen fuel cells, but I don't actually know for a fact that this is a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
I suspect that this is in fact more energy-intensive than the drone would have been simply using batteries, and if you used a nice clean fuel, it's certainly more energy-intensive than it would have been to use a microturbine.

Really good mikes cost a lot of money.
Those mikes are owned by the recording studio. That two grand is half recording, half pressing and packaging. There are half a dozen here in Springfield, friends of mine have used them.
Deutsche Gramophone worked with Yamaha to make a recording system capable of getting a 144db dynamic range.
CDs are limited to a 90 db, making that kind of pointless. LPs are limited to 60 db but oddly I have several LPs with more dynamics than their CD counterpart. But the point is, we're not talking about classical music with a 72 piece orchestra, we're talking about what's on the radio worldwide.
But of course, if one listens only on crap earbuds or a crap car stereo, then who cares, right?
You do realize that we're talking about streamed MP3s, don't you?
I still think streaming is for suckers. You pay for something that can be arbitrarily taken away by the "content owner" at their whim.
Paid streaming? I agree with that. But then, I don't have cable, either, the antenna works fine. If I'm buying music I want it on media; if you don't have the media you don't own anything.
I'm American but the British are right (about this). Punctuation punctuates, where you put it shows what you're punctuating. If it's a quotation within a sentence, and the punctuation is the sentences' punctuation, the punctuation goes outside. He didn't understand the word "outside". If the phrase within the sentence is what's punctuated, the punctuation goes inside the quote. "Peter is a jerk," he said. "And what a jerk!"
