    Archimago and the TLS DS-1

    Maybe it's just me but this gives the impression that you listen to the gear rather than music. And that it is actually he who could listen to music with a peace of mind, knowing that it is as good as it can get.

    Qobuz streaming MQA CD's?

    Somehow I don't feel like it anymore.

    Best RCA Cables

    Sorry, non-native speaker here, but isn't "the least expensive cable you can afford" just "the least expensive cable"?

    Relative importance of differences in stereo systems

    Conclusions from the thread so far (with a big 😉) : - rich audiophiles don't do MCH because they think stereo is better - poor audiophiles don't do MCH because they are poor I wonder, if poor audiophile became rich, would they actually invest in MCH or mysteriously changed their mind and stay with stereo? 😀
  7. You mean that electric guitar with some distortion effect (starting around 1:15)?

    HD Video watching. DVD? What?

    For me, on linux, the youtube player picks format 248 for video: webm/vp9 and 251 for audio: opus. Here's all that youtube provides for that video: ]$ youtube-dl -F https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUBU34RoJBU [youtube] cUBU34RoJBU: Downloading webpage [youtube] cUBU34RoJBU: Downloading video info webpage [info] Available formats for cUBU34RoJBU: format code extension resolution note 249 webm audio only DASH audio 62k , opus @ 50k, 2.53MiB 250 webm audio only DASH audio 88k , opus @ 70k, 3.37MiB 140 m4a audio only DASH audio 128k , m4a_dash container, [email protected], 6.15MiB 171 webm audio only DASH audio 146k , [email protected], 5.76MiB 251 webm audio only DASH audio 159k , opus @160k, 6.57MiB 278 webm 256x144 144p 109k , webm container, vp9, 30fps, video only, 4.63MiB 160 mp4 256x144 144p 112k , avc1.4d400c, 30fps, video only, 5.33MiB 242 webm 426x240 240p 254k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 9.77MiB 133 mp4 426x240 240p 256k , avc1.4d4015, 30fps, video only, 11.92MiB 243 webm 640x360 360p 463k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 18.13MiB 134 mp4 640x360 360p 553k , avc1.4d401e, 30fps, video only, 15.11MiB 244 webm 854x480 480p 827k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 32.35MiB 135 mp4 854x480 480p 1081k , avc1.4d401f, 30fps, video only, 30.40MiB 247 webm 1280x720 720p 1618k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 66.85MiB 136 mp4 1280x720 720p 1963k , avc1.4d401f, 30fps, video only, 57.91MiB 248 webm 1920x1080 1080p 2849k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 124.49MiB 137 mp4 1920x1080 1080p 3450k , avc1.640028, 30fps, video only, 108.63MiB 17 3gp 176x144 small , mp4v.20.3, [email protected] 24k, 3.98MiB 36 3gp 320x180 small , mp4v.20.3, mp4a.40.2, 10.86MiB 18 mp4 640x360 medium , avc1.42001E, [email protected] 96k, 27.56MiB (best)

    Article: Why Can't Music Artists Do This?

    Er... but soap opera effect exists also for genuine 60 fps recordings (I presume), so how is this the "filling in" algorithm fault?
  10. That DR 16 is probably from Dynamic Range DB which is calculated like this.

    Merits for HiRez

    I don't know if "shift tool" in Audacity can work with sub-sample steps, I guess not, but you can always up-sample, e.g., 4x and move by 1, 2 or 3 samples and down-sample back:
  12. May it be their internal amp hiss?

    Everything sounds the same

    Do you have any example of a case where some measurement says that 2 images should be indistinguishable to human eye and yet people can distinguish them due to their better pattern recognition?
  14. There is a table further down with some summary and one column there is "Percentage of Power Above 20 kHz".
  15. How should I interpret the fact that: converting 16/44 version to 24/96 and subtracting from the original 24/96 gives around 40-50 dB in the audible range while taking the original 24/96, converting to 16/44 and back, and subtracting from the original gives dead silence in the audible range? Is it that they are misaligned? Or that some different resampler was used to prepare the 16/44 version and I cannot just use sox to "revert" it exactly enough? (Or something else?)
