Could Our Audiophiles Explain This?

Post by rjm »

I just reupped with Amazon HD for a year so I don't have to be without good sounding music while my life turns upside down in the coming months.

At least I'll have music. I can't live without music, and to me, MP3s aren't music. Just imho. I need this! I need it to get through the coming storm.

That said, what the heck does this all mean, especially since this set has a very good stereo soundbar? 🤔 The "device" should be capable. 🤷🏻‍♀️

This is from the downstairs TV. No soundbar; subpar sound quality, but I can't, of course, buy a replacement. Wouldn't recognize it anyway.

The one with the device that is not as "capable" as this one HAS a terrific soundbar. The below picture has no soundbar, just the TV. This makes no sense to me. What exactly IS that soundbar playing? Because it's not streaming at the track's top quality. And it IS streaming at top quality of the track with the TV that does not have a soundbar! How do I fix that? Perhaps there is a setting in Amazon Music? To tell it the real device, which is a stereo soundbar?

FOUND IT!

It's under the little picture of "you" on the TV app. Click that, and settings, then "audio quality," and toggle the switch!

Then I can keep the elderly and mean Homeowners Association members up at night!¹ 😉 Just kidding! This house has great insulation. (I'm not supposed to talk about it. 🤫 But . . . no. 🤐 )

I am keeping the posts here in case anyone else is having a similar problem.

Yes, I know: I shouldn't have re-upped. But without music, including ALL the new and recent legacy reissues that I can't buy, I cannot get through what's coming. I will have to sell almost everything. But I am keeping the TVs!

Because if one purchases the physical product, it costs WAY more!²

¹But they made me sign a contract to pay DOUBLE for three years because I couldn't pay in 2018, which has only 12 months in it, not 34 months! When I signed it, my only immediate family member was in critical condition. They took advantage of that. They can take me to court! I paid up already!

²Just do the arithmetic. It's amazing!
