Wow, what speakers did you use that could properly replicate a 16hz wave and 20khz wave without distortion or extreme roll off?

Also, Nick, it's just a term used to compare the listening experiences of CD and vinyl - it's an inherently subjective term, so it's pretty hard to translate it into electrical terms, since "organic" is different to everyone. I would say most of it is probably due to euphonic distortion and noise (noise can be euphonic to many, just like visual noise can be visually appealing to a lot of people. From a poll back on an AV forum, ffdshow's most-used function was the "Noise" one).

Thanks for that explanation.

The only aspect of sound formats that can be called "organic" or "digital sounding" is the noise. Signal is signal. Crackles and pops are heard in fireplaces and walking through leaves. Hiss is heard in the sound of waterfalls and escaping air. The sorts of digital gurgle noise and buzzing artifacting you hear in digital audio is like nothing in nature. It stands out more and is more irritating to ears accustomed to natural sounds.

See ya
