About Me

  1. Timbre definition from Wikipedia, “In music, timbre, also known as tone color, is the quality of a musical note or sound or tone that distinguishes different types of sound production, such as voices and musical instruments, string instruments, wind instruments, and percussion instruments. The physical characteristics of sound that determine the perception of timbre include spectrum and envelope. In psychoacoustics, timbre is also called tone quality and tone color.” I suggest reading the Wikipedia article as timbre contains both subjective and objective attributes, both of which are discussed
  2. Note: an updated version of this text is my main audio site (audioroot.net). Why the heck would anyone buy a DDDAC1794? This thing seems very much out of place in the arena USB and FireWire DACs out there, it costs a lot of money, and it requires an intimate relationshop with a soldering iron, too. However, I have been in the DIY world long enough to know that nothing beats a good DIY system. I had many and very different DACs in the past. My beloved Stokes DIY Tube DAC was restricted to S/PDIF and red-book 44/16 audio. I plunged into computer audio with a not-so-great Headroom USB DAC
  3. The image below shows a comparison between the MFIT (Mastered for iTunes) and ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Compression) versions of John Mayer's "Queen of California."

I can't see any visual evidence that the dynamic range compression is different: since the loudest and softest parts both appear louder on the ALAC version. Hope the image turns out ok. If not, I will upload somewhere else. <p><a href="/mo
  4. If you haven't been following this story, and are concerned about artistic (or any other form of) freedom of expression, this is about a Russian punk rock group who have been jailed following a sham trial for criticizing Putin. Amnesty International has adopted the three women convicted of thought-crimes as "Prisoners of Conscience", a designation the politically impartial human rights organization reserves for the most blatant forms of political incarceration. The full Amnesty International press release describes the situation in detail.
  5. Edge.org, the website of the science and technology think thank Edge Foundation, has a great collection of answers from various experts to their "Edge Question 2011", "What Scientific Concept Would Improve Everybody's Cognitive Toolkit?" Among them is this great contribution from Richard Dawkins that I think applies extremely well to the audiophile world: The Double-Blind Control Experiment Not all concepts wielded by professional scientists would improve everybody's cognitive toolkit. We are here not looking for tools with which research scientists might benefit their science. We
  6. Digital Future of Audio This appeared in the thread: In a perfect world, where would the D to A conversion occur? The topic here is where is audio headed, for normal consumers and for audiophiles. I put his hypothesis to you: Audio will be digital all the way through. I challenge you to a battle of reason and arguments, I give you: The challengers: Mr. A Mr. A grew up under difficult curcumstaces; knowledge was scares and life was hard. Little by little he was nursed to life and he spread out through the world. Mr. A prospered and branched out, gr

I would like to be able to play 24 bits/44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, and maybe 176.4, and 192 KHz. Thank you.
  9. how does one "load" 600+ into this system? i ripped these 600+ cds onto my pc harddrive 4+years ago using windows media center and player(windows media lossless codex) and onto mediamonkey(in flac) both my pc and my maxtor one touch external backup hard drive failed!! i have no desire or patience to do do that again,EVER! so, if i purchase this sooloos system-media core 200 who do i get to rip and load the cds on the harddrive and how much does that cost? thanks bobbmd/[email protected]
  10. I'm new into computer audiophile and almost new to everything music wireless. I have several HD (USB & DLNA) and an M-Audio Audiophile Pro, which I connect to a micro Hi-Fi Stereo though Aux (RCA), I'm looking to move forward to a new level. Where can I find an article with equipment recommendations and installation guides? I'm thinking about getting an Internet Radio (Cocktail Audio X10) with 2TB of HD, what do you think? What speakers should be decent for this? Thanks to all, Jeannette
  11. Starting Point A commonly stated "scientific" reason for alledged audible differences between (speaker) cables is the fact that electrical signals travel at different speeds for different frequencies. Background The characteristics of a cable are often simplified to its impedance (Z), its capicatance ©, and its inductance (L) where Z = sqrt(L/C). This is a simplification of the more complete formula Z = sqrt((R+j*2*pi*f*L)/(G+j*2*pi*f*C)) where R is the resistance and G the conductance. For high frequencies, i.e., for very large f, R and G are much smaller than 2*pi*f*L and 2*pi*f
  12. Am new here. Have been building a system with an Asus computer using J River media player into an Asus Xonar ST sound card. This feeds with an optical cable a Marantz sr7005 driving Klipsh speakers with a 7.1 configuration. My question is the weak point of my system may be the on board cd player that came with the computer. The system sounds great now (play largely classical and jazz) but I syspect an better cd playerthan the one that came with the computer may improve performance? Any comments would be appreciated. Jim
  13. Hello Computer Audiophile, sorry if my english is bad guys. Well here's the problem I'm facing right now, both my PC and Sony Vaoi laptop are Realtek HD Sound Card, my laptop have this HDMI port, sometimes I use the HDMI as a DAC, well it seems that I can't afford any DAC at the moment, well my HDMI audio device only output up to 16/48 only, doesn't reach to 24/192 as any HDMI said that it can output to 24/192 that far. Well, back to the problem, I'm using JRiver Media Center 17, foobar2000, Aimp3 and Winamp. Right now I've read CA's FAQs and I just read about Windows internal DACs is mostly w
  14. As some posters have doubted the benefit of resolutions and sample rates higher than 16 bit and 44.1 kHz, I set up a listening test. Robert von Bahr of BIS has very kindly arranged for the permission to use a track from BIS-SACD-1949, "endBeginning" by New York Polyphony (available from eClassical). I made available 8 versions of the track "Lamentationes Jeremiae - IV. Mem.". In addition to the original 24/96 track, there are versions that have been first downsampled and/or truncated to various permutations of 96, 48 and 44.1 kHz and 24 and 16 bits, and then upsampled back to original
  15. Updated with more info on Audio DiffMaker, plus ABX listening tests. Lots of discussion around this article: 24/192 Music Downloads...and why they make no sense http://people.xiph.org/~xiphmont/demo/neil-young.html I decided to run a science experiment using Audio DiffMaker to compare 16/44 to 24/192 format of the same master from Soundkeeper Recordings: http://soundkeeperrecordings.com/format.htm I have used Audio DiffMaker before to compare FLAC vs WAV and comparing two bit-perfect music players on my computer audio playback system. Here is the result of my 16/44 vs 24/192 e

  17. Dears, Finally I've pulled the trigger and bought Burson HA-160D, OH-MY, This small little peace of Art from Burson is making my speakers (B&W 603 S3's) & Amp, sing like never before. currently I'm using it with my NAD C372 Integrated, and using MacBook 2Ghz/2GB via USB cable supplied by Burson. and my music preference is Female-Vocals, Classical. Musicality, & Jazz, -AND- My Quest has Began, hence I'm here to seek your expertise and help with the following: 1. What USB cable to buy? 2. How can I use my Mac boo
  18. In part 1, I used a null test technique to show that both FLAC and WAV (lossless) file formats are identical. In this post, I have expanded the null test to cover off playing the same FLAC and WAV files dynamically from JRiver and capturing the audio waveform after the Digital to Analog conversion and analog line output stage. Here is a high level block diagram of my test setup: For playback, I am using the exact same original FLAC and converted (by JRiver) WAV file I used in Part 1. It is Tom Petty and Heartbreakers Refugee at 24/96. JRiver is set up for bit perfect playback with no

    I've got everything connected and it is up and running. First impression: sounds really good, but needs some fine tuning. I have to set the digital crossover between signal going to the main speakers and the subwoofers. The main speakers are the Focal Chorus 826 V with a frequency response of 45Hz - 28kHz, and the subwoofers are the Velodyne MiniVee 8" with a frequency response of 28-120Hz. So I guess it makes scene to have the crossover somewhere in the range 50-120Hz (the settings are discrete in steps of 10Hz, so 45Hz in not an option). Instinctively I would like to use the main spe
  20. Seems that one Bartholomaus Traubeck has devised a turntable that will play the rings of trees, rather than conventional vinyl, as reported by HuffPo in this report: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/01/huffpost-arts-interviews-_n_1247581.html?ref=arts Years - 'scratching' from Bartholomäus Traubeck on Vimeo
  21. Seek and preserve maximum source information when transferring analog audio to digital formats. Don’t let anyone tell you that it doesn’t matter, that your albums are not in pristine condition, that your equipment isn’t good enough, or you are not a trained listener. http://bit.ly/xm3g5C
  22. So I've finally gotten around to locating the speakers and came up with some interesting results: 1) All locations had their deepest nulls at 100Hz, ranging from -7dB to -24dB. 2) All locations had their highest peak at 125Hz, ranging from +4dB to +8dB. 3) Secondary nulls were consistently at 160Hz and followed by secondary peaks at 200Hz. The location that I've settled on for now is 35* off axis and puts the tweeters 40" from the back of my chair and 37" from each other. They're set up to fire about a foot behind my head when seated and raked back on a pair of Auralex MoPads
  23. I've been a keen audiophile for over thirty years, though, in that era, the word audiophile was not used. In many ways a much simpler world where all amplifiers sounded the same, turntables rumbled and wowed, unless you had lots of money to spend, tapes came on reels, and valve amplifiers were available in the local junk shop for a few pounds... In my impoverished teenage years I built amplifiers, speakers and turntables from kits and from articles in the press, and had many hours of pleasure and frustration extracting more and more from my growing vinyl collection. My working life be
  24. Having a software pc repair is typical, Either you can get it through your local repair shop and let you be his or her regular customer and later on get a discount or some freebies. There are also ways like searching the net for answer for your specific problem and as we all know, The net is a one stop resource for everything and there are DYI or Do it yourself as we all know it kind of way to let alone fix the problem. But we also know that there are certain pc issues that not all can fix, only those few whom have devoted thier time and life in perfecting or mastering thier craft to be at you
  25. There doesn't appear to be much information available on the BT100 blu-tooth device, so I asked them for more details. See below for CA's response: ------------------- The maximum audio resolution supported by the BT100 is 16/48. The apt-X protocol used is the standard apt-x bluetooth. However, your music will still be upsampled to 24/384 via the BT100.
