Is now the right time for "Extreme Week"?

Recommended Posts

What's under the bonnet here is culture. And diversity of culture. We are what we talk about (both chicken and egg). It's good to talk.

Then you should have particularly stated that you were talking about beliefs and in particular ...

 

There was no need, but thank you for correcting me.

I just don't think the moral imperative should be brought into an audio and music hobby.

Your statement that "moral views should not be inhibited or policed", implies that I do. This is a mischaracterization. IMO there is a time and a place.

 

No-one is implying a denial of civil liberties. I prefer if we keep politics and religion and the pandemic out of HiFi discussions.

 

lol too many oxymorons

 

[anyway please review this isn't politics or religion it's spending lots of money or not on hifi]

Agreed. I would like to point out that the “Extreme” might be the best option for the particular configuration selected — it feeds the Chord Upsampler. If one wants an “Extreme” server capable of extreme HQPlayer upsampling, I suspect this would NOT be the best, simply because single core CPU speed is the most important parameter ... and do a fancy extreme cooling solution to overclock an i9-10900K ... which has been liquid nitro cooled to 7.7 GHz! Might be better ... that said by our most recent testing wouldn’t get to EC modulators at DSD512 rates ... in any case there are different techniques each optimized for different requirements. There is no one right answer!

 

... plus some technology already "old" (low tdp easy to cool) might be better for some needs - e.g. no upsampling / offline playback etc.

To each his or her own ... I do strongly feel that if someone makes the effort to do a multipart review then it deserves publication.

 

The reviews are Ace. Loads to learn. Entertaining too.
