  1. 2-Channel Audio
    I recently switched from Intel to M1 Mac, and X Lossless Decoder(XLD) can no longer decode audio files, so I'm looking for an alternative to the app for converting/ripping audio to AAC(.m4a) format. Ideally the alternative would have good metadata collection like XLD has, but really, anything...

    I"ve been looking for a projector for awhile and there are so many out there, the search gets daunting.

    Hi Since I watch all my content (movies, shows, live TV) through my HTPC (a 2014 MacBook Pro), I was thinking that I could take advantage of the calculation powers it has, and use it for calibrating my TV, without having to invest in a new Radiance video processor for example. Can I achieve...
