    Mp3 to DSD Conversion

    I am confused. If MP3 is the Ford Pinto of encoding, how can it be "upgraded" through any means to DSD? What would the result be? A perfect DSD file of some horrid MP3 file? "take a tin can, step on it ..... now attempt to straighten it" Hence compression. The right keyword is crap in (MP3), crap out!

    Audiophile VS Musiphile - Your Thoughts?

    Good subject. I go with the music every time. Because no matter what equipment you have, from modest to super expensive, a poor recording is ...well, a poor recording. With the present state of technology it is possible to enjoy a good recording without the expense and stress that some audiophiles inflect upon themselves. There are a great number of threads on audio sites which recommend nice equipment for a modest amount of money.

    The hummingbird conundrum

    Easy answer. Only people who can afford camels can afford audio systems that can reproduce hummingbird tweets accurately. {thank me later}

    HiFi car audio systems

    Back in the distant past circa (1961/2?), I remember an ad in the Los Angeles Times stated "at 60 miles per hour the loudest sound you hear in a Rolls Royce is the clock" Well I don't know if that was just ad copy or true. I haven't seen the same claim for today's models. I would think that any hyper expensive car - audio system would be overcome by road noise. Unless you can find a 60 to 65 Rolls / Bentley.

    Increased Shipping Rates from China

    Was ist lose at the Bundespost? (old American GI English-German mash up) (Deutchlish?) Don't care how long shipping takes. I just don't want to pay outrageous postal rates!! Wibur Ross (US Sec. Commerce) (aka "Speedy") said today on CNBC that China-US trade talks are taking a break. I hope they get going on these talks before it cost me real money!

    NICKY HOPKINS

    Nicky Hopkins (1944-1994) was one of the best keyboard artists of the classic rock era. He passed at only 50 years of age, much too early. He worked with the Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The Who and many other groups. Listen to Sympathy for the Devil on the Beggars Banquet album and you will know what I mean. Maybe the best rock piano track ever. Thanks Nick.

    Audio Techinca AT2020

    The AT 2020 spec. sheet indicates XLR cable connection to the microphone. What, exactly, do you want to plug the AT 2020 into? Recorder? Camera? Something else? Most home audio system run XLR to XLR.

    German Institute for TeleFunkin

    I lived in Germany for many years.....believe me, Funk, bands, music or otherwise is not my impression of German Club entertainment. Unless it has 240 beats per minute ......... I honestly don't know how they can stand that stuff. Sorry Darko.

    No, not too soon. She became a fashion victim in September 1927. Would it be wrong, very wrong, to wish the same fate on the Instagram "influencers" who consume our internet bandwidth with photos of their lunch? Or the horrid Kardashian flood of soft porn photos on our internet pipes which would be better served by transmitting higher resolution files of the Kinks in Concert? Yes. It would be wrong. Fun, but wrong.
