  1. This statement really bugs me. Perhaps I don't understand who is in the group of people called the "real world." This my help me understand their views, but I'll always disagree with them because I personally know many audiophiles who are the opposite of morons.
  2. That's what Black Sabbath is all about. Being tasteless on so many levels. Part of what makes them great :~)
  3. Wow. You act as if your health is at stake. This is audio. A fun hobby. You also underestimate the intelligence of the average audiophile. When it comes to what audiophiles care about and what people spend their disposable income on, i opt for the live and let live approach. I don't care what others want to do with their time or money. I also don't want others caring what I do with mine.
  4. Add it as an attachment "click to choose files" Test _
  5. Yes, and thanks for sharing your efforts.
  6. I'm suggesting that not all measurements really matter. That's not crazy talk.
  7. It's a very good thing Dennis.
  8. What is that statement?
  9. Back on track people :~)
  10. That's a really cool idea. If someone wants to pay to play MQA, the company could sell them a plug-in. Rather than all users of software paying for the embedded license such as what's in Audirvana.
  11. One thing comes to mind after reading @Archimago article. There is talk about Chord and MQA approaches being very different. Many people here have ripped on the MQA approach. I don't disagree with anyone on this. However, without blind ABX testing aren't we arguing over something that may not matter or even be audible? P.S. I like reading all the measurements and seeing graphs and reading about people's subjective assessments.
  12. Agree. Great speakers. Not good Lookers.
  13. I thought you were asking about differences between approaches and since two companies think they are right, it comes down to listening and making a decision based on what you like. No math involved when two approaches have pros and cons. Edit: It appears archimago agrees with me, "So which approach is right? I guess I can offer you the usual recommendation... "Go listen for yourself." :-)
  14. Sometimes you just have to listen to music and decide for yourself what sounds best.
  15. Interesting article about FireWire. I wonder how many of us still use FireWire DACs. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/06/the-rise-and-fall-of-firewire-the-standard-everyone-couldnt-quite-agree-on/
