 The 'volume' of sound refers to perceived loudness, and is variable in two respects. One, the frequency determines how loud it will sound at a particular dB level, that is, different frequencies at different dB can sound equally loud. It's called the frequency and loudness contour. Second, this response will vary due to natural variations, occupational effects, and many other individual reasons (listening habits, health issues, age etc). In addition, the recording itself,...
Firstly, sound waves are longitudinal, different from the transverse nature of light.   Secondly, I'm not too convinced by the 'turbidity' argument. How does sound exhibit turbidity? How does that affect sound quality, and how do the dots change this for better? Until these questions are answered, I'll say it's just some pseudo-technical jargon.
Glad to see this thread is going strong.   I'd love to see Lamy do a 2000 FP in wood. Even the Studio would be a good design to implement in wood.
 I also posted the same question on the Rockbox tech forums. The reply was to boot the fallback image and try again. I did that, but got the same error. Then I formatted the data partition again using EmCore's menu, and managed to mount the partition. But there was an I/O Error on the drive (I confirmed that on the terminal). So it seems the HDD is busted. Time to change to another player.
Guys, I need to know if anyone else has faced a similar issue, and whether there are any fixes.   Upon boot, pressing Rockbox gives the message 'Rockbox image not found, using fallback image', or something similar.   Then, when rockbox boots, it just shows a blank screen with 'Partition not found, plug in usb cable' or something similar.     This has happened with my iPod Classic 6G twice in between a few months. Usually I just use EmCore's 'format data partition'...
 Bigshot,what baseline curve do you normally use for obtaining a flat response? I'm assuming that the ideal response curve should be something close to the equal-loudness contour?Because then the question is, a tone might be 'equally loud' as 1kHz but not 'pleasing', especially in the high frequencies. So then, what constitutes a 'target response'? A combination that's 'pleasing' or 'represents reality' the best?
Philosophical revelation. Please skip if you don't like philosophizing.  [[SPOILER]]
 I was taking a look at the BBC's  list of greatest drivers. - Only two drivers from the modern era (Post 2000) made it to the list for the best win ratio.- Only three drivers from the modern era made it to the list for the most points per grand prix start.- All time total number of points is dominated by modern drivers.- Only three modern era drivers made it into the list of most poles per grand prix average. So what's going on here?-- Modern drivers have scored the...
 Agreed. March 16th is going to be fun. Set the tone for the rest of the season. I'm sincerely hoping for some good racing this season.
 Possibly. I haven't watched Prost racing so I can't say much.
