It bugs me that every time there’s a power blip, the otherwise wonderful Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100 shuts off, and the LEDs on it are so small and dim, I never know whether it’s going to work when it’s time to listen to AirPlay or Roon through the RoPieee attached to the NAD C 316BEE v2. It’d be great to have a DAC that just stayed on all the time. A search for best cheap DAC revealed the Apple USB-C to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter as a surprising candidate, so I just ordered one! Also included a low-profile ddHiFi TC01A USB-A to USB-C adapter.

Watched this old Josephine Foster interview while I did the dishes. She is just in her own time, isn’t she?

We took our niece to Charm School Study Hall for soft-serve today. Mine was a dairy vanilla cup with chocolate sprinkles and caramel, but based on how we felt afterwards, I think our bodies are too old to process soft-serve properly anymore. It made us feel woozy before we were even done.

And now I’m going to play with Hookmark. It’s included in Setapp, so why not?
