A look back to 1978...
Despite the myriads of technological breakthroughs announced month after month with tedious regularity by manufacturers of pickups, amplifiers and loudspeakers, there are only five developments in the 101-year history of audio reproduction (footnote 1) that we would call truly revolutionary.

Tidal states about 2.5 million songs. Even if you count conservatively, some songs are counted more than once because they appear on multiple albums, say 750,000 unique title/artist combinations.

My own flac file collection is just shy of 1 TB and it is less than 3000 titles.

There is no player out there that can hold anywhere near the files I have in my own personal collection, let alone all of the titles in the Tidal library.

Also, the new Meridian format, MQA, will be available soon on Tidal which give even better then cd quality. Even at $29.99 a month that would be worth it as long as the number and types of titles available in MQA warrant that pay level.

I want to thank Tidal and Jay Z for what they are attempting to do here. Even if all they accomplish is to raise the level of awareness of higher quality audio to the masses, along with My. Young and his PONO/music service, it was worth the exercise.

Ever wonder what music do the reviewers consider their favorite?
Are you trying to decide between high-resolution downloads and LP reissues? In the market for a hi-rez portable audio player? A zealot bravely fighting back in the Loudness Wars? Change is inevitable, and in the audiophile world it's the spice that keeps things interesting—there's always a new ...

Start with a description of the dual slit experiment. Now bring on four top physicists, each with their own theory that they favor. Give each the chance to convince the other three that theirs is the correct one and you have the makings of a pretty interesting game show.

A multithreaded program with extensive global mutable state is one of the best demonstrations of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle I know of.

As Antoine-Marie Roger de Saint-Exupery said, La perfection est atteinte non quand il ne reste rien à ajouter, mais quand il ne reste rien à enlever. (English translation: You know you’ve achieved perfection in design, not when you have nothing more to add, but when you have nothing more to take away.)
