I felt physically sick..

 

Furious and disorientated I threw my half drank glass of Apocalypse Now (Tequila and Irish cream) across the room and immediately set forth to the kitchen to make another...

 

Won't be doing that again I can tell ye! (Tequila's not cheap) 

 

Before you knew the bit rate, were you enjoying what you heard? Be honest.

I am extremely happy with how the system is sounding. Now what's next? smile.gif

I think the speakers are the only part of my rig that can be considered even remotely high end biggrin.gif

 

 

Magnepan MGII. Need to fix some delamination on the right speaker (bass panel), but I got them for a ridiculously cheap price so I can't really complain.

Move the TV, it's messing with your speakers. :D

Sorry my friend, but that was just a joke post. I was just going with the flow.. But to add, in all honesty I'm quite happy to listen to variable approx 250kps as this is a standard from places such as Amazon. I think it is good enough. I will try to get bigger music files if they are available but when you are after rare contemporary Classical and Jazz records that cost many $$ to buy on cd or record, a download for a fraction of the price is always going to be the best option. Some of my favorite recordings are lower than 320kps and I can't fault them.

 

Cheers

Almost all of my listening is piped out of a Sonos via COAX from Rhapsody or MOG at about 320kps.  Sounds fine to me.

To really feel the difference between the 320 and lossless, do not need amazing gear. I clearly hear the difference, to be honest. Even at early years of playing with formats, codecs I used to upconvert (shame on you, I know) my crappy clubby pop songs (128 to 320 kbps) to FLAC. Even then they sounded a bit better: more fuller, to be short. And for today, I listen to only EAC'ed lossless music, size difference between this rips and 320 one's is dramatic, but for electronic music it is crucial. In my opinion, of course.

 

Now back to awesomness thread!

Congratulations, you have made the impossible possible!

It's no different from the expensive wine in a different bottle argument.  Taking a $2 bottle of wine and pouring it in a bottle that cost $1000, doesn't make it taste any better...unless the $1000 wine is still in there lol.

 

Anyway....MAS PICTURES!!!!

Have you ever had a $2.00 bottle of wine?
