    Best RCA Cables

    I know and I appreciate that. In fact, since the freeze-frame image you posted actually had text of the message, I didn't even have to open and run the clip in order to get your message. I won't do that.

    Well, you could easily have just said it. QED. (FWIW, I could see the text in the freeze-frame.)

    Good Class D amps ??

    So what? There is no necessary correlation.

    Good Class D amps ??

    Nope. A switching power supply is not always correlated with Class D amplifier technology. There are Class D power amps with linear power suppllies and there are Class A-B amps, like the Benchmark, with switching power supplies.

    Relative importance of differences in stereo systems

    Personal taste preference. "Sounding good" is an expression of preference and I am saying that an individual's hearing variability (as long as it is not pathological or completely disfunctional) has no impact his judgement of accuracy, not on personal taste preference.

    I've never understood why anyone inserts film/video clips in lieu of saying something.

    Relative importance of differences in stereo systems

    This gets us into Floyd Toole's "Circle of Confusion" because there is no reference. However, if the irregularities you refer to as well as the huge and variable influence of personal preference could be controlled, one's own auditory irregularities are still a constant feature of listening to both live and reproduced sound and, therefore, not a differentiating factor.

    Relative importance of differences in stereo systems

    I do not agree. How does a listener determine what sounds best, most accurate or like live sound? (Pick any or all.) Typically, we do this by comparison, either directiy or from memory, to the live event. But, wait, one's personal, unique and irregular hearing FR is being applied to both the live and the reproduced sound. Thus, only a flat/neutral reproduction system is capable of providing any chance of success. Taste preference is a confounding variable.

    Why all hi-fi dealers say PC audio is bad?

    Well, aside from the typo, I did mean to exclude the Pink Faun because of my lack of knowledge about it but I do acknowledge that it does support multichannel albeit only via I2S. I was excluding it from the discussion because I regard it (perhaps out of ignorance) as a "PC-based streamer" and not one of the proprietary and closed designs that do not support multichannel (or do it poorly).

    Upsampling 24-bit files

    Now, I can say for sure because I just tried it. DSP is possible with DLNA.

    OK. I suppose the intricacies of multi-link quoting confused me.

    Upsampling 24-bit files

    I cannot say for sure but, depending on your DLNA format options, DSP is possible.
