    EZ CD Converter usually gives me a choice of 6 -8 options and most of these have generally improved over the years but I still get some of these symptom:

    Titles - not in title case/incorrect spelling (has improved on many databases)
    Genres - according to whom?
    Year - album recorded or published?
    Album Artist - sometimes missing album cover artists
    Track Artist - many times insufficient when different to Album Artist
    Album Art variable quality (I find Gracenote usually has reasonable quality cover images)
    Too much extraneous stuff
    etc etc

    My biggest bugbear is variable capitalisation and also and/&. Oh and bands that change their name slightly with different albums. It's a bit of irritation when Spotify has an artist capitalised differently that my collection...

    My general grumpiness is declining with advancing years!

    This is an example of a playlist I like:
    https://play.qobuz.com/playlist/3728562

    (you can use that number in the search box in LMS to play it there)
    Try this: https://play.qobuz.com/playlist/3900674

    Let me know if it works, and if it does, enjoy it. I didn't know I could share a playlist. I learned something today. Thanks.

    Yes it does, thanks! A few albums on there I would already listened to sometimes, but lots of interesting new stuff.

    I’ve recently seen artists on Qobuz that appear to be named exactly as I have them in my local library appear as a separate entry in LMS 8 with online library integration. I haven’t interrogated the database yet but I think it must be some white space.
    I think my overriding bug bear is and/&.
    I’ve got physical media where the artist uses & on everything but Allmusic only recognises and.
    VB2.4 storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 -> Celestion F20s
    Office - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom
    Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) - SB Touch ->Sherwood AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s
    Everything controlled by iPeng
