I'm a technical retard, so I hesitate to get into computer music with DACs and what not, esp. at my advanced age.

Yeah, that is one thing about Qobuz I don't like - it's still young enough that it's pretty glitchy.  I have to restart the player frequently.  I think part of it is I"m using Chromecast Audio which is a discontinued format/device.  I need to update to something more currently like the Kipschgate.

And now back to exploring more incredibly good music on Qobuz I'd never have even tried out before, modern classical flute music.  Classical's more irritating instrument in works from the most aggressive sound period?  Sounds like  a recipe for disaster.  But it's surprisingly good!

...unlike in the pre-internet days.

In the pre-internet days, Tower Records was a second home for me.

If it was Tower Records in Manhattan then we probably, literally, bumped into each other.

And moving on:

The three Towers at my disposal were in central Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa, AZ.

Here is what I love about Qobuz.  I'm reading through a review for a Recording of the Month here:

http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2019/Jun/Faure_requiem_AP201.htm

I think to myself "Hmmmm, I wonder if it's on Qobuz".  So I do a search on the conductors name, it comes up immediately.  And in Hirez.  So now I'm listening to:



And wow, sound quality is incredible.
