    Even with my limited knowledge at the time, I assumed it would. It did pull all the album/song info in.

    For those who owns Logitech Harmony One, remote code for SQBT is available and built-in.

    Steve, I agree, it's hard to see the screen from anywhere beyond 6' +, hence I use an iPad app to control mine (and occasionally using H1 by programming all my stations under favorites).
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    When you said you don't use metadata on your files, I assumed you meant no tagging info. Tags (ID3) are known as 'descriptive metadata'. So I was just clarifying what you meant.

    You're right. I worded it incorrectly at the start. However, I didn't know ID tags were classified as metadata along with cover art. My point was about the art. Period. So I apologize. Thanks for clearing up what I wanted to say.

    By itself as a statement it could have been worded differently to be more succinct.

    You know of another way to embed data (metadata) into a file? The other way is to name the files in Windows (whatever you want them to be) and then do a Windows search when you want to find them or at the very least Windows Explorer to manage them. As soon as you take the file out of the Windows environment the file name assigned to it by Windows means nothing. Perhaps it came off to you as sarcasm, but it's 100% true.

    I know Fred, that's why I edited my original post.......to caustic. Words on the screen, yada, yada....I didn't word it very clearly to begin with. A clear case of me the writer understanding what I meant, but the re-reading it later thinking, hmmmm that's confusing.

    We agree that even a soundcard output using K-mixer to an outboard dac would be better than and iPod and or headphone jack outputting the same signal.

    EAC does find cover art. It's in the set-up. You can point it to where you want to get the art from. It has a freebie default or you can specify a pay site. To configure start EAC and click on the EAC tab, then Metadata options. Metadata provider should be 'freedb Metadata plugin'. Also under 'Metadata options' click on the 'freedb' tab and make sure your email address is there or else it won't work.
    To retrieve album art select 'Database' tab, then 'Get CD Information from', then select 'Remote Metadata provider'. Do this prior to burning. You can choose to search for small, medium or large images (i use medium). It will display a bunch of choices and just select the one you want and click on 'Transfer selected cover to EAC'

    Steve and others, it's just another thing to add when you are ripping. Who knows what technology or configuration is coming down the pipe. You may not use cover art now, but in the future you could wish you added it at the beginning rather than having to add it all at a later date. It's free and once configured is there if you need it in the future.

    Magic software ? They all pretty much do it, one click and it "fetches" art for the whole library. Album art may or may not be of significance to some, but I find the visual aspect of audio on some level just as enjoyable. Seeing an album cover brings back memories of where I was, who I was with, though.....who I was with may not be that enjoyable of a memory now that I think about it. Ok, lets stick to where I was at.

    What software.....the one your using to rip does it. Itunes even does it though not as good as others. My sonos does it, most others like media monkey and J rivers does it. Theres no magic bro, it's a matter of going into your advanced menu and clicking on "get album art", and it does the whole library in minutes. Maybe a different way of doing it between softwares, but in general, yeah, it's that easy.

    Default CI Audio PSU

    Ok, based on some of the impressions of the forum, I pulled the trigger on CI Audio's PSU for the Touch today. I really debated Welbourne Vs. CI, but reading about some of the drama with Welbourne, it made it an easy choice. I have really been listening to the Touch alot and like what I hear, however, I am hopeful this might offer a better experience. I guess I have 30 days to decide, with small restocking fee, if I do not notice improvement. Thanks to everyone for posting your experiences and impressions. I hope to do a little review, after I receive and settle it in my system.

    Can't say with any certainty that my CIA improved things, but I do like the idea of cleaner/better regulated power. There does seem to be a teeny bit more solidity to the sound.

    Steve, mine open up another layer of resolution to the point that I can literally see the band players in the front speakers....

    ok. Agreed with Steve, but the cool blue light is to die for.

    Sometimes, especially with subtle upgrades, I question wether I'm hearing differences or just getting used to the sound. I *think* there is more spaciousness, a bit quieter background, and a touch more body--but like I said, it's very subtle--and I'm not that confident in these findings. Either way---I'd do it over again. Given it's performance/price ratio, the Touch "deserves" a better power supply. Most people spend more on a single cable.

    IMO, the "magic" combo with the SQB Touch is: Flac, DAC, power supply.

    My Welborne, PS wasn't night and day at first listen. But comparing it to the walwart back to back I noticed much better imaging, delineation, crispness and even blacker background. After several listening sessions, for me, it's a must to use a nicer, cleaner power unit like the CIA or Welborne.

    I've never tried my Touch without the upgraded ps, as I already owned the Welborne, but from everything I've read the improvement is there but subtle. For the Squeezebox Classic, however, the improvement was dramatic.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Word is that the Classic had a very poor switcher, making the PS upgrade far more significant.

    I figure:

    Touch...$239 (what I paid)
    CIA PS..$259

    Total...$498; not too shabby for an excellent source.

    I know nothing about Apple or iTunes, etc.......but I'm told by Apple lovers the platform is so much better and so much easier than a PC it should practically pull the cover art out of thin air if you just smile at it.

    Good luck, wish I could help but I use a PC and I have all my cover art.

    LuSh, I was going to direct you to mp3tag, since I think it's the best tagging program out there, however, I just looked and it doesn't seem to support AIFF. Have you considered something like dbpoweramp to convert to another format, such as flac?

    I have figured it out. I thought I had ripped most of my files in AIFF but actually only half were, the other half were in WAV...so I'm re-ripping and sure enought squeeze center is finding everything. If you own an iPad I highly recommend Squeezepad for music control, it's simply awesome.
