That's a pretty nice tool. Thank you! :). However, it's just a workaround. I am still wondering if the WilB has a better source somewhere. If not, I'm cool with that! :).

One more thing: do you know any other JSPanel components? Is there a repository for updated components (that work with the latest JSPanel)? I already have the "Smooth series" (br3tt). I'm trying to find more samples to look at :).

What I have left with me now is a Bryston 3B ST(a power amp)and a pair of Bohlender & Graebener Z-7 loudspeakers. So I need :
A.)A source(DAC+CD player. A player is important because I still use CDs)
2.)A pre-amp


1.)Is it true that modern source and amps are all sounding more similar than different with each other?

Depends what you call modern. Amps started sounding pretty much alike after the second or third generation of SS amps, which would be in the 1980s at the latest.  Vinyl playback gear always sounded different and AFAIK it still does due to inhernent technical limitations.  Reasonably good CD players always sounded alike, and the general run of CD player started being good in the late 1980s. The price of a good CD player then started going down and down, with the result that it is hard to buy one that has poor enough audio to sound different, outside of some very high priced boutique items that are designed to sound different, which is to say in general, worse.  These days you can't find CD players very easily, and in fact your garden variety ca. $100 Blue Ray (BD) player sounds as good as anything. But watch it, many don't even have analog outputs.  The common interconnect of 2017 is HDMI.

What's a good option for me?

1.A receiver as a preamp+DAC and some cheap player with a digital out.

This  can work. The cheapest player will probably be a BD player with just a HDMI output, but the AVR (modern receiver) will have HDMI inputs, so this will work for audio and also audio/video.

Your existing speakers can work with the AVR.

Sell the Bryston and you might get enough cash to fund all of the new gear.

Support - (fb2k) / Change Text in the Title Bar
Last post by JohnTravolski -
Is there any way to change the text that appears in the title bar of the window for Foobar2000?  I'm on Windows 10, and here's a picture of what I mean:



It seems to display information based on some of the tags of the song.  However, is there any way to change which tags are shown and in what order?  Would it also be possible to show the filename in the title bar?

Awesome, thanks.

ADD: Display of last.fm statistics (scrobbles, listeners) where available, in last.fm web page format (to maintain language support). Shown at end of text. Their display can be disabled in panel properties ("Statistics Last.fm...").

ADD: Text display options to panel properties. "Text Spacing Pad", can be used to adjust line spacing and "Text Align Always Top".

@aeidein. Rating can be displayed on a separate line or embedded in the text or shown in the heading. Set with " Rating..." in panel properties. You can choose the display mode, e.g. set as image only or text only (menu or middle click). Setting applies to both artist and album views - I have no plans to change that behaviour. The "Layout Outer Padding Text Bottom" can affect the top space since the text block including the heading is normally vertically centered - so it spaces equi-distant top / bottom if the pads are the same. I've added an option to always top align the text which will stop that behaviour (see above). You will only see a change in text only mode or in dual image + text mode with right / left layout (in dual top / bottom layouts the image is sized so that the text is a flush fit). Regarding line spacing, I've added that option as well (see above). There's also "Heading Metrics..." in panel properties that does what it says.

New Version: YouTube Track Manager 3.9.1

CHANGELOG

Minor changes to YouTube 'Preference' filter. Can now choose which fields it should check. Choice of Uploader, Title & Description. Recommendation is Uploader and Title; Description may lack specificity with certain keywords like "lyric". "ADV.YouTube 'Preference' Verbose Log..." is now more informative.

@MojoBass
It seems to be working as intended. I think the console output was a bit ambiguous before & you interpreted it incorrectly. The console in the new version should be better. It can show which preference keyword is matched.

How many sources? If there are only a couple, then maybe not even a preamp or AVR - what about a computer and active speakers?
(I use that ... and pretend that it is not from the MQA BS guy.)
