    No Sample Rate Conversion You select "none" in the Resampling Filter box (it is the box furthest on the left in the Filter/Oversampling section). Also, you need to make sure in the last box to the right (Sample format/type) that "SDM (DSD)" is NOT selected -- otherwise, you won't be able to select "none" in the Resampling filter box. When "none" is selected, no sample rate conversion happens.
  3. That's still better than the Marketing Department designing the bridge. ☺️
  4. I would say no*. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientist *Not that there's anything wrong with that. ☺️
  5. You only need to sticky one post. The thread originator should be able to edit and add to it as needed. Dates should be added to sections as it's added or when last updated. One can also include links in the sticky post to other posts.
  6. Not meaning to be facetious but I wasn't aware that scientists had any research interest in MQA. And why listen to only scientists? What's wrong with engineering practitioners, for example?
  7. While an upvote (as opposed to a like, thanks, funny, etc.) should signify the post is relevant to the original topic and helpful, this may not be apparent to members. Therefore, I would suggest either changing the term 'upvote' to 'relevant' or otherwise creating a new category called 'relevant'. And, of course, it would be useful to be able to sort thread posts by a specific category (relevant, disagree, etc.) just like reddit.
  8. And/or a big fan of illegal Japanese street racing. ☺️
  9. Would it be more accurate to say that an active speaker is one for which each driver has its own channel of amplification?
  10. Moral of this story: Those who can make art do, those who can't define art.

  12. The volume control runs from max (no attenuation) to -64 dB in 1 dB steps for a total of 65 different levels. I have no idea how Windows maps those onto its scale. It might not even be a linear translation. Does it use a custom Windows driver or the built-in Audio Class support?  For my Dragonfly Red, the Windows volume control maxes out at about 30 to 35 (after 35 it's all full volume). I could live with that, since there's still enough room to make meaningful sound level adjustments; however, for the Dragonfly Colbalt I tested, the Windows volume control maxed out much sooner -- making meaning sound level adjustments much more difficult.
