    MQA is Vaporware

    I said in THIS forum, where he IS a member, and in particular, THIS thread or another applicable C.A. thread.

    Where in this thread ? Incidentally, I don't know how this happened , but I just got the attached warning and had to bypass Norton's recommendation.

    BTW, I realise that Archimago isn't a lazy keyboard warrior, but perhaps his time in this forum would be better spent posting REAL measurements that support the title of this thread ?

    As usual, the lazy keyboard warrior E.E. insists that non qualified people should take or obtain measurement that only qualified people with suitable test equipment should be obtaining, assuming that at his age he still remember how to do so !

    I didn't say I was going to do some of the typically demanded measurements that have very little, if anything to do with how many components will sound. The C.A. Borg Collective is still unable to measure why some USB cables sound better than others, despite there being NO Data errors.
  6. Do you have any better ideas on how to save the exported data for comparison purposes, and perhaps uploading for analysis if the binary data is different ? Dennis didn't have a problem with this suggestion.
  7. Mazza Do you have a suitable USB Female to Female adaptor that you could plug a USB memory stick into ? You could then save the outputs of the different USB cables and look at the checksums to see if they are still identical.

    Measurements & Sound Quality

    You would be well advised to also check the reviews on several different sites, and don't buy just based on measurements and claims by the manufacturer/distributor.

    Is Digital Audio A Mature Science?

    Allan is correct. A liquid at high pressure has a higher boiling point than when that liquid is at atmospheric pressure. For example, water boils at 100 °C (212 °F) at sea level, but at 93.4 °C (200.1 °F) at 1,905 metres (6,250 ft) altitude. For a given pressure, different liquids will boil at different temperatures.

    Hi George Neither am I, but I surprisingly remembered this from High School about 65 years ago. Regards Alex

    Dynamic Range Compression Equivalent In Video

    In this case by simply increasing HF detail a little in the DIGITAL domain. The differences are best seen at the direct links https://imageshack.com/a/img922/3521/hA7X7H.png https://imageshack.com/a/img923/5024/NMu0jF.png

    Is Digital Audio A Mature Science?

    Many opamps in consumer audio do have huge amounts of feedback, and aren't usually biased into Class A operation except for very small signal levels either. Some designers force them into Class A operation for improved results. Many designs use a combination of Global feedback and local feedback. Local feedback can be as simple as a transistor with an unbypassed emitter resistor, or with Vacuum tube designs an unbypassed Cathode resistor.
