        Live OTA is the best way to watch HD.

        There BBC used (still?) to do sheepdog trials. The tv program least likely to cause a heart attack!

        Mind you, it wasn't boring. Just very, very slow.

      Does Amazon cd level music go through Android stack to 48khz rate, and how poor does it sound? Does Qobuz do the same or not?

        As far as I know basically all the music streaming apps do. USB Audio Player Pro gets around it, but somehow whatever they do seems to allude everyone else. Really wish Roon would figure it out.

        @bixby yeah I should have clarified. Would prefer to listen to roon via my phone when at home due to interface/ease, but can't bypass Android mixer.

        I was in a home once with MBL 101 speakers. With all the electronics it was easily a +$200k system.

        The same room had a large panel TV not connected to those speakers. It had a soundbar. :\

        The model has been used for decades. Buy big space at set price, sell small bits at a price, make profit. Nothing complex. CV19 kills the economics when you cannot sell all (earlier multi year contracts at N size) and have too little revenue from tkts. And lots of marketing to make various sizes of this work.

        It does take production chops to do a virtual event well. I have seen a few crash and burn hard over the last year.

        True, I haven't tried any, but I can't see how one can do such a thing virtually. Not the trade-show side of it anyway. If we want to know about, say, speakers, we can visit the manufacturer sites, visit the review sites, the youtube pundits, the forums, etc etc. It's all done already. A show is about personal experience and contact, hands on: the virtual world is... virtual!

        Captchas do serve anti-bot purpose. Or do they? Haven't bots learned how to recognise fire hydrants, traffic signals, bicycles and crossings? Doesn't google know about any other items to throw at them?
