    I've spent all weekend with this plug in, and I'm hooked. I used CanOpener on my iPhone until it stopped working (GoodHerz stopped upgrading it), and I really liked it.

    I documented how to use this on a Mac, if your player doesn't support AU plugins, or you want to use it globally. Basically, using BlackHole to route the audio to a loopback, then using GarageBand to host the plugins (and parametric EQ, if desired). Instructions here. I just shrink the GarageBand window as small as possible, and put the CanOpener window on top of the GB window. Works for me. I'll likely just sell the RME ADI DAC now.

    Thanks again.

    Cool! Another (albeit not free) option could be using Rogue Amoeba's SoundSource to set up a global virtual audio device that can host AU plugins. (I haven't used it extensively myself as the player I use can host plugins itself.)

    Yep. I looked into that, and many more options documented on my site.

    Saw posted on slickdeals that the Metropolitan Opera will be streaming for anyone to watch for free, "live in HD" a series of their pre-recorded operas.
    Details etc.: https://www.metopera.org/about/pres...mpany-website-during-the-coronavirus-closure/

    Also free, the Seattle Symphony will be livestreaming and rebroadcasting concerts:
    https://www.king5.com/article/news/...-ban/281-fb85c16a-ced5-484c-9c95-e6bd6fb8ae20

    Hopefully, these performances may be a nice distraction for some of us - give's us a break from anxious news.
    (Please keep safe and sane kind folks.)

    Berlin Philharmonic's Digital Concert Hall is free for 30 days (usually a paid subscription):
    https://www.digitalconcerthall.com/en/concerts
    They have a large archive of recorded concerts. They also do live streaming but not many concerts coming up soon.

    Sort of. The app was $6.99 from 2017 until Mar 16, 2020, when it went up $2. My guess is they thought they could make a few extra bucks on people staying at home, then realized that was a bad idea.

    In any event, it looks like a good mobile player, so thanks for the pointer.

    FiiO X7II for $502.49 w/ free shipping from Fiio ‘Official store’ on AliExpress:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32825007255.html

    $650 on Amazon. I suppose they’re blowing out their remaining inventory of this previous generation DAP. They say 35 units left.

    AudioTools, a iOS "acoustic test & measurement" product is on sale for $9.99 (reg $19.99)
    I've had some fun with it using an imm-6 mic and my iPad.
    You get the basic platform for $9.99, and there are add-on ($) modules.

    IBasso Titanium (Silver) IT-04 on Amazon for $399. Sold by Pro Music & Sound. 9 left.

    Weird thing is that I can’t get it to come up on the desktop Amazon site, only in the app on my iPad, so no link.

    I actually found the blue (for $499) and the clicked to the silver for the lower price.

    Nice discount for a great IEM which I’ve never seen on sale.

    <edit>Someone over on HF found the product link:
