Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

You still have disks? I upgraded to solid state memory long ago, plus with declining prices of storage memory it's not that big deal, unless you store TBs worth of XXX.

No, I don't. It's a waste of "storage space" then.

I guess.
The 5.1 spec is what it is, they either could have made LFE especially for this, or left it blank, as it desn't really improve anything.

it's not 5.1 Mix as specified on the official website but 5.0 Mix,
with a low sound level and an end that cuts before reaching 0 dB

Ultimately, it ended up at #21.

Suprising for such a non-commercial album, it's not that it has market-friendly tunes and the promotion hasn't been huge at all. So well done!

Reviews of this album are remarkably positive too. I read a tweet of a guy who isn't fond of Jean-Michel Jarre at all, but he's an Amazon biologist and he liked it very much. I recommended the 5.1(or 0) version since all the noises come from every direction. He said he preferred the real thing though :-)

Very interesting review, such as shame the streaming version wasn't the CD version, as the CD is visibly compressed...

Qobuz again had 10 sec longer version of Binaural compared to the highresaudio com version of the album.

Very interesting... It shows difference and I am disappointed to see that the different versions do not benefit from the same treatment and not to have taken the vinyl.
For an artist it should be inconceivable, unbearable that his work is altered, truncated.
These are the joys of the marketing industry

OK, the last part is 9 sec longer, I don't know if this is just silence, or what.

Ah Wonky! I've seen all of his JMJ videos. I do not agree with his view on Chronologie, but most of his videos are enjoyable.
