    The New CA Issues and Feedback Thread

    Possible. I think it’s a config issue. It isn’t the most straightforward software to config.

    Thanks. Damn elasticsearch keeps crashing which takes out all the activity streams.

    The Dynaudio units sound better for sure.

    Article: Audio Engineering Matters, Not The Format

    Take a step back and please think about the difference between the delivery format and what happens as part of the playback process. We must separate the file format or music format (PCM/DSD) from what happens “inside” the DAC. Many DACs oversample to 768kHz internally. This shouldn’t be a call to find 768kHz recordings because they must be better.

    Exactly. Two very different things.

    The new Eric Clapton Christmas album is stellar.

    Article: Audio Engineering Matters, Not The Format

    Hi Shadorne - I think you’re conflating format and what happens as part of the conversion / playback process. Resampling / upsampling / oversampling etc... are very different from the format in which the audio is created or stored. If 44.1 kHz is enough for some people, it doesn’t mean there aren’t gains to be had by changing this before conversion. Perhaps @Miska can add to this conversation.

    Perhaps you like reading yourself write? 😁

    Blind Results Surprising But Not Really

    Hi Guys - I couldn’t help but notice the parallels between this blind camera test and listening to music. I don’t want to give away the results, so I won’t say anymore. Once you see how this turns out, you’ll likely see what I’m talking about.

    Thanks for the feedback. Do note that it’s on the top of every page under the thread title, but I agree that’s not as nice.

    The New CA Issues and Feedback Thread

    Thanks. There is a better fix on the way to resolve this. It has to do with the amount of memory available on mobile browsers and how it’s used. Thanks for for your patience.

    I understand.

    Can you give some additional information? It would help the rest of us.

    MQA is Vaporware

    No, but A&K says an 8 core CPU for what that's worth. It runs Android. https://www.astellnkern.com/eng/content/shop/features.asp?mcg=CG110000&mpos=0&scg=CG231960&spos=1&tcg=&tpos=0&gcode=SC32050
