  1. Has anyone seen the PN /300 or HMV /200 variant online? Links possibly? All gone?
  2. I'm surprised this sells so slowly... /150 still available
  3. Well, I took a small leap of faith and enabled the iCloud library on my iPhone only with only a limited number of files on it. The result is as I feared: Many albums were identified correctly, but - some albums seemingly unknown to Apple disappeared entirely (formerly ripped from the orginial CD via iTunes) - audiobooks with single files >2h length disappeared entirely - some album art changed to wrong covers (formerly ripped from the orginial CD via iTunes) - no drag&drop movement of files between iTunes and iPhone possible anymore Still a fan of the idea but definitely not of the implementation...
  4. That sounds a little overdramatic ;-) but, yes, I got a messed up library during the trial period. Of course I had backup copies of the files back then and still have. I just wonder if there are any recent first hand experiences, whether they got this issue fixed or not. As I said, I probably need to try and it be prepared to reset the iCloud library & rebuild my library.
  5. My library is about the same size and I spend hours adding the correct tags and covers. However, I chose to manage the files and folders myself. Therefore, I assume there's not much additional Information in the library itself. Maybe I just need to take this leap of faith. If worst comes to worst, I have to nuke the library and disable the iCloud function again...
  6. Thanks for the reply. Doesn't this change nothing? I nuke the library, add the same files (i.e. build the more or less same library) and re-add it to the cloud. Why should the matching algorithm behave differently?
  7. Sorry for bumping this old thread, but I need some user experiences on Apple Music: A year ago I did the trial period and noticed a lot of problems with the iCloud library (wrong tags, wrong covers, messed up albums etc.). Furthermore, dragging songs from my Mac onto the iPhone didn't work anymore without disabling the iCloud library everytime. For some reasons, I'm back at Apple Music as part of a familiy subscription. Can anyone give some recent experiences: Is it save to enable the iCloud library now? ( tagged my library thoughfully and thoroughly and I don't want this to be messed up...) Did they fix the issues with overwriting tag/covers etc. wrongly? How does copying music from the Mac onto an iPhone work nowadays?
  8. Maybe we should start talking about the records he ordered. Was it a "Chung King Can Suck It" for $5000 ? Maybe then, $100 in shipping doesn't make a difference anymore...
  9. Throwing in my two cents on shipping US --> Germany Those prices seem ridiculous. USPS is usually something between $20-30. Of course you've got the much faster service using UPS, DHL or FedEx; but you've got to pay the price... I've been buying records from the US using USPS First Class International for almost 10 years now. No tracking, but I've never had any issues (except delays due to slow customs processing...) For some high value items I chose USPS Priority International just for the sake of tracking; also, no issues, yet.
  10. For me, this record is the legitimate successor of the Black Album. Took them only 25 years... Load/Reload didn't do it for me, St. Anger is nothing to speak of and Death Magnetic also didn't click for me at all. This one does. A lot of hits (all previously released songs, of course Spit Out The Bone...) and some growers with a lot of cool parts in it. It's actually a contemporary Metallica record. Though, one could ask, whether Metallica are contemporary at all. Hardly any modern metal band today repeats a riff more than four times in a single part of a song. But Metallica is still all about riffing and they are doing it 8x or even 16x for each riff. So you get 80+ minutes of music, value for money, yes, but you have to let go of your listening habits. By the way, the red vinyl looks amazing. And, yes, there's music on it...
  11. don't worry. some of the 400 will show up for a semi decent price on ebay... hopefully...
  12. Finally found another store that carries the indie exclusive red variant: http://www.amoeba.com/hardwired-to-self-destruct-indie-exclusive-red-vinyl-lp-metallica/albums/3872423/ Amoeba also ships internationally! I guess, more will pop up the next days/weeks.
