  1. Do They Take Us For Simpletons?

    I think most of us came to that conclusion after about three posts.
  2. Do They Take Us For Simpletons?

    A good connection has a resistance of a few milliohms at most and is not hard to achieve.
  3. Do They Take Us For Simpletons?

    As often as the effect of the fumes wears off. Perhaps someone could make solder with cannabis based flux.
  4. Do They Take Us For Simpletons?

    Solder fumes.
  5. The core decoder includes the ability to upsample 44.1/48 sources to double rate.
  6. Until someone opens the box and takes a picture. Does this mean it isn't compatible with standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet? What use is it then?
  7. Linear phase filters have no phase distortion. They do have the (for no good reason) dreaded pre-ringing, which is a) not an issue, and b) nonexistent at 192 kHz sample rate. MQA is solution to a non-problem.
  8. Chord DAC

    Although what they say is probably true in that this is how their DAC works, they are grossly overstating the badness of regular DAC chips. I don't doubt that it performs well, but their approach is simply overkill. A well engineered product based on a high end DAC chip from any of the usual vendors will sound just as good at a fraction of the price.
  9. Interpolation in general means calculating additional values between two given values. Applied to a sequence of samples, this naturally results in an integer multiple.
  10. I'm sure. See MATLAB documentation: https://www.mathworks.com/help/signal/ref/upsample.html https://www.mathworks.com/help/signal/ref/downsample.html https://www.mathworks.com/help/signal/ref/resample.html These definitions are probably the most widely used ones.
