  1. Actually, I know that. My point wasn't what AccurateRip used. It was to pick a software example of where MD5 would be perfectly fine to use. Many people here use or aware of AccurateRip so I used it as example of software that uses checksums to verify file integrity where we aren't worried about malicious intent.
  2. This is obviously falsehood. You or someone else purposely manipulated the modified file so the MD5 checksums matched the "original" file.
  3. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. MD5 is fine in situations where you are not worried about malicious tampering of files. MD5 is just fine for programs like AccurateRip. It's not hard to do what was done here.
  4. My quote was from the guys that wrote the paper! Again, they said this: "Early on, however, studies suggested that one ear could also suffice, especially for human listeners that have been deaf in one ear for a long period (monaurally deaf). In 2004, we proved that this was not the case." The text "2004" is a hyperlink to the paper they wrote which they say proved that deaf in one ear listeners could not localize. You can't read just the first paragraph of the paper. You can't localize with just one ear.
  5. Wow. Read it again..... Here is what they say on the first page I linked to: "Early on, however, studies suggested that one ear could also suffice, especially for human listeners that have been deaf in one ear for a long period (monaurally deaf). In 2004, we proved that this was not the case." But you go ahead and believe what you want to believe.
  6. No, not really. This was on the web page linked above, but I will include it here: http://www.jneurosci.org/content/24/17/4163.full

  8. You need both ears to localize a sound.....so both ears localize the sound. You don't use your left ear or your right ear to localize sounds.
  9. That is ridiculous! Cassettes never sound “much” better than CDs. Sometimes the masterings are better but the medium is massively flawed compared to CDs.
  10. Look at the title of the thread. Why are being so obtuse?
  11. Do you not know what "head to head" means? It means going up against each other.
  12. @Em2016 and @STC Let's not conflate professionals composing, recording, mixing, and mastering with the consumers listening to music in their homes. Because they are not even close to being the same thing. Also, unless you can show me that even 25 percent of the industry composes, records, mixes, and masters tracks and albums using headphones, all you are doing is saying that a few people use headphones for these activities. In other words, exceptions don't invalidate the rule.
  13. It depends on the question, doesn't it? Speakers beat headphones head to head. But I use headphone sometimes because I would rather listen to music through headphones than not at all.
  14. If it was no big deal, not a big risk, why is that album cover on just about every controversial album art list that exists? Because it was a big deal and a big risk to take. It paid off and is now one of the most famous album covers of all time.
  15. Yes, it was an extremely popular album. Yes, it was openly sold just about everywhere. But using that photo on the cover was still a risk...which is all I said. It was racy for 1965. It was meant to push the envelope which it certainly did.
