did you end up using the 10 meter xlr?

I haven't had much time to play around with things lately, but will be testing a few interconnects (various lengths and models) this week. Will let you know how I get on...

Arigato. Thank you very much Happy

At least this is not fine wine or exotic food, which the only way to find out is to taste it.

What you have read in that ToolTip counts for the whole path.

Now you have to get aquainted with how to present your music folders in the Library Area.
Notice in advance : When you do not use Galleries your opportunities are less, but also it will be less visible / logical what all can be done. Anyway example :

You have a main Music Root with under that several folders. When this is about the "Original data" (hence not Galleries) this should be quite static and will not be (or should not be) much dependent on sorting mechanisms and such;

When you ask for the Music Root you will get all you have in the Library Area. Because it is all, the search text box near the bottom is subject to that all. This is how the search facilities work on the "whole path", but this is the path NOT contained in the root you're in. Example :

MyMusic\Jazz\Female\[album names]

If you ask for the MyMusic\ root then Jazz can be typed in the text box and all what's jazz will pop up.
If you ask for MyMusic\Jazz\ as the root, no Jazz in the text box will bring you anything, unless it is contained in the album names.
And so on.

This also means that if you have your SD in a special folder and it is named like that, you will be able to or select it explicitly (as root) or search for it by means of asking for the higher folder (\MyMusic\)  and search for it. But of course give the "SD" a clear name.

But is this wanted ? I mean, you would sort of have to know right after or during ripping because your folder names (which impliy structures) must be made at that point. This is how Galleries are better. So, your ripped files may not be in a \Jazz\Female\ folder right away but all in \Jazz\ while afterwards you select the "female's" and put them in a Female Gallery somewhere. This could be :

etc. etc.

I don't think it is common to put SD vs Hres in specially named folders *because* it is more common to right away put that in the album name (don't ask me why  but I too feel this is more logic or something).
In the end anything can be in the album name but NOT the file type (this would be redundant because a. already in the file name (like .FLAC) and b. subject to change (convert the FLAC to WAV at some stage). But further ? the year like [1984] or the label by some [] means, whether it is a remaster, anything.

Do notice that making all unique at the album name level is good habit because two albums of the same name but other version will now always sort nicely under each other, the one showing e.g. "Remaster" in its name and the other not.

This is how internal tagging should not be used in the first place because you won't be able to use any normal folder structure ...
(so how to store them while the names need not to be unique like with "Remaster" and without).

If you have arranged for all this like (my) logic depcits, you can also always find all within one second. I can ...

I hope this is helpful but I'm not sure.

Next up :

Switch on the ToolTips (towards the bottom in Settings), go to the Library Area ( [ L ] button in the top), move the mouse to the one but last text field in the bottom (next to the [ R ] button), wait until the ToolTip shows, and start (more comfortably) reading under the [ H ] button the in the top.

More later.

Hi there fralippo,

First straight answer : No, searching for tag data is not possible. I mean, not if you literally mean "tags" in the file.

But other possibilities exist. I will try to put forward a few of them after this post.

Btw welcome to the forum, although you are not exactly new. Happy

I've a quite big music folder, both with SD and HD albums. Each one with its tags. I need to find a way in XXhighend to be able to only see HD albums if required. I thought about the possibility to create two different folders for SD and HD and then simply switching between them pointing to desired one in XXhighend Settings area.
BUT, I'm also wondering if there's TAGs search in this brilliant piece of software. I used "composer" field also to indicate sampling rate for HD music. So if I'd search for "192KHz" I'd be fine.

Update :

I know what this is about now. Actually what it tells, but not so much expected for us :

Record the sound from the speakers (from the sweet spot) and post it. The reason is a longer story, but quite justified ...

As far as I can tell only Mani will have the proper equipment ... and me.
I will do it anyway but later it may appear that more of this is "required" since this is also about room response (to sum it up very roughly). But let me have an attempt first ...

............. but what Bybees do is very different to the ENACOMS. I would not be without them though.


I had the opportunity to test my Spectron amps (Digital switching amplifier) with and without Bybees (see pictures) and what I can say is that there is a noticeable improvement in sound with the Bybee purifiers installed. The sound is much more tridimensional with more body and smoother. I think that the Bybees are worth being tested in certain parts of the system such as amplifiers and speakers. My big VR-9Se (Von Schweikert) also had the Bybees inside...

Now Im using Genelec speakers that are autoamplified and I dont know really if I could place the Bybees in some place inside but if I could Id do it.


P.S. I have one of this Spectron with Bybees for sale, in case anyone could be interested PM.
