My computer setup includes a digital to analog converter that runs out to my Audioengine speakers. That includes a right and a left A5+ speaker. The same setup has an analog type switch that goes out to my record player. That means that any time I decide to spin up a record and listen in analog mode the sound on my computer is turned off. Maybe that is something that pauses the alerts and any other sounds that might be happening, but it also lets me focus in and really listen to the music and work on whatever needs my attention without interruption. Right now I’m listening to a Jimi Hendrix album called “Both sides of the sky” that was released last year.
