I should have grabbed my little Raspberry Pi touchscreen player before I left the office. I could make good use of that Digi+ Pro at home. Mar 26, 2020

        I've been looking for something like that. With a touchscreen. What are/were you using? Or is it DIY? (Thanks.)

        RPI 3 and official touchscreen. SmartPi case. Digi+ Pro. Extension GPIO cable because the case and card IO ports don't play well together. I'm using moOde player. It's not polished.

        Much obliged. I could do with a project like this.

      Since I'm spending most of my time here now I put my old U-Turn orbit at my desk, to the Lyr 3 with the built-in preamp. Sounds alright.

      Working from home for now, like many. Good news is my Lyr 3 is back from repair and sounding great.

        What was wrong with it / what did they repair?

        The left channel failed with DC on the line. Not sure why. The repair was replacement of the main board under warranty.

      Test For Echo playing on the Crack, a glass of scotch, and rereading Ghost Rider as I sketch out summer motorcycle trips in my head.

        Are you drinking The Macallan? It’s Neil Peart’s favorite drink. May he rest in peace.

        Unfortunately no, as I had none on hand. Now I’m debating whether to travel on my GS with Macallan out of respect, or to find my own whiskey.

      No new audio gear for a while. I spent all my money on another motorcycle, with more riding gear to buy.

        There haven't been many exciting new developments in headphone land for the last 5 years anyway. Live your life! Outdoor stuff > indoor stuff

        Only if you are not in a humid area. Outside of Florida most of the year make me stay inside.

      Working on a mix tape. Choosing a theme and working it into two 30-minute sides is a good challenge.

        Not really, kids in the 80's did it all the time, it's child's play.

      My record player never loses its damned network connection in the middle of a song.

        Funny, neither does my turntable. My PC had a crashing problem recently (just figured it out and fixed it a day ago), so I used the vinyl system more recently. Great excuse for me to use my speakers.

        The raspberry pi player is awesome most of the time, but when it goes wrong it’s always disruptive

      Almost exactly 50/50 gear vs. music purchases this year. Closer than I expected, and more gear than usual.
