Amazon streaming service great sound but a bug machine.

more_vert
I have signed up for the 90 day free trail. Yes it is still buggy especially with downloading problems. However sound quality is definitely better than Tidal Premium. Smoother more liquid and transparent. At $15 for non prime members it will probably get me to cancel Tidal. Their ultra HD is the most noticeable difference vs Tidal master quality. I believe Tidal uses MQA and Amazon does not. Hence no decoder required. Bottom line is that i was impressed with the sound quality. Update..... I tried to call customer support about some playlist problems and all i get is a prerecorded message telling me about my subscription. Anyone know how to get in touch with a person i can talk with? UPDATE..... Download problems persist and changes to the playlists cause misalignment. However now i have occasional sound problems where some tracks sound fuzzy when you first select them to play. You need to play from the beginning for it to be fine. Bottom line is that this app is just not worth the problems. Going to renew my subscription with TIDAL at this point.

I am definitely up for a Tidal alternative but the widespread bug issues being reported will cause me to hang tight with Tidal for a bit. Haven't used the Amazon Music UI in a bit but it was terrible a few years back.

Of course it could just be an incompatibility problem with my samsung note 8. There are so many variables that can cause problems. I would suggest that you just sign on for the usual 30 day free trail.

I'll wait it out, Tidal is covering my needs for now. The Amazon HD service should have the bugs shaken out in the next 6 or so months. I have a large portion of my 512gb card filled with my own High-res and Tidal downloads so carrying multiple app's downloads isn't feasible there.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

R7DX with the Aliexpress/eBay Hifiman "upgraded" headband. Headband is flimsy, and I will need to add some epoxy to reinforce how the earcup holders attach. Definitely improves these headphones...
