Who on this forum "hates" vinyl?  So far as I can tell they believe they simply have recognized a better medium and moved on.  Does buying an LCD TV mean you hate cathode ray tubes?

(I still watch T.V. on a C.R.T. box, by the way...)

It seems to me you started this thread by poisoning the well with a personal attack on those who *prefer* digital modes.  They disagree with your preference, therefore they must hate your preference.  Not a great way to start a productive conversation.  And you wonder why you are drawing some snark?

OK, here you go. The ZIP file contains 8 FLACs and a readme file.
I started listening, got halfway through, stopped and started playing video games.
Anyone else notice this?

Well, there are no such functions in JScript. But you could probably make something with window.setInterval, i.e. get, compare and update theme values from registry every N seconds .

I'll give it a look, thanks.

Right now, there's an entire music resurgence going on, with people listening to Lo-Fi, Vapor Wave, Synthwave, etc. Some artists intentionally release their music on MCs because the slightly muffled sound is actually part of the whole point, etc.

The latest hipster fad. Like a plate of 'food' being half empty and the rest dotted with tweezer placed micro-dots of one gel or another and the odd flower. Fluff and nonsense.

I want to hear from those who hate vinyl exactly what it is that they find so objectionable.
Once I experienced the convenience of using a clicker to pick anything from my library for instant playback, there was no going back.  The fact that digital sounds to me as good or better than what I got from my turntable was just icing.

I'm not suggesting that an LP and CD of the same recording would be indistinguishable - of course they would sound different (and especially so for classical).

I certainly acknowledge that lstening to vinyl direct from the TT is always accompanied by annoying noise.

In selectively quoting your earlier post, you have removed your follow-up comment that it is intolerable. Let me refresh your memory:
In case you missed it, I own a TT. I find plenty fastidiously cleaned vinyl quite enjoyable. But as a classical music fan, with my decidedly non-audiophile, slightly capable system, near intolerable.
So you find fastidiously cleaned vinyl quite enjoyable, but you also find it near intolerable. It's often difficult to figure out exactly what you mean to say.
I'm saying I agree with Cliveb regarding classical vinyl/playback noise. If you can decipher what he's saying about classical vinyl that I agree with, you should be good to go.


I didn't realise you had a problem with Arny. I put the two of you together because
Please don't.

Now I have a question for you. Do you listen to "live" vinyl with some sort of active analog declicker/noise remover, or just (digital) noise removed recorded vinyl rips? Genuinely puzzled as to what sort of "vinyl" playback you speak of.

Is there a way to detect if the windows theme, or the screen settings were changed?
Can you elaborate your question a bit? =)
Are you talking about Windows (e.g. Windows 10) theme? Or fb2k theme?
And there a lot of various screen settings as well both in fb2k and Windows...


I'm talking about the windows 10 theme. I have a script that reads the registry key value of the accent color and other related settings such as transparency mode and whether the accent color is applied to the window titlebar. The script than refreshes panel stack splitter in order to apply the new accent color, if changed. At the moment it is triggered by the on_size and by the on_playback_new_track events, but I would like to execute the script when one of those screen settings is changed, or when a new theme is applied.

Post those files.  I'd be interested in doing the test.
