Please think about this... How can your forum make Computer Audio easier to understand for those who want it, but just don’t understand it and need help with getting it.

Hi JD, the same way it always has. Perhaps I don't follow your question?

You are far too intelligent to avoid appreciating what I'm saying.

 

Unfortunately, intelligence and empathy are not necessarily related. Just look to Washington, DC, if you need any proof.  :)

Perhaps ... but they are positively and highly correlated in my case. And that's all I care about 🙃.

My digital system is wired ethernet (RedNet/Dante) but strictly offline. I don't download or stream music from the internet.

I most certainly agree that, ideally, they should be. Moreover, without much effort, they can be.

People need to realize there's a difference between a thread (like the DLNA thread referenced above) where the OP asks for info/opinion and is clearly asking for all points of view, or a thread  where the OP says something like, "do you think USB cables can make a difference?", as opposed to a thread where the topic is "USB cable comparisons". In the latter, the OP clearly isn't asking to be told that there isn't a difference between cables and cables can't possibly make a difference.
 

In the first type of thread all points of view are welcome, in the second the objectivists clearly aren't welcome, especially if they want to be snarky. I don't really think this is rocket science.

I agree.

 

Perhaps there just needs to be a better way for those starting threads to indicate what kinds of opinions they welcome.

Sometimes it's like someone took a knife, baby
Edgy and dull and cut a six inch valley
Through the middle of my skull
