You know you're an audiophile when... - Page 395  

post #5911 of 6356
About the masters--some of the high rez/SACD masters are actually different and sound a lot better than CDs. I don't think one single format is inherently better than the rest, but masters do vary by format. That's why I stick to vinyl and *select* high rez recordings. Cheers.

YKUAAW when you consider different phones better DAPs than others.

Le me: "Trust me, it sucks. There's no way to use a LOD with it, and the DAC/amp suck."

"Ok..."

Not much of a difference in the 5 and 4-4s. Just that its 10x faster has a bigger better screen lighter thinner and easier to carry around. And more durable wink.gif

Dafuq is that? 176 kHz? I've heard of 24/192, but not 176.

I'd never heard of it until I saw my DAC has a little light for 176.4kHz. It's pretty rare it would seem.

When does the narwhal bacon?

 

YKYAA When you have become so well known in your classes that people will walk up to you and simply say, "Beats" because they think it is funny when you rant for a few minutes.

When your audio setup is nice enough(compared to the average person) that when a bunch of people come around for a house showing the first thing they saw upon is entering your room is "sweet setup". I was also playing Greased Lightnin' through my speakers at the time. :)

176 is right (88x2). High resolution files are typically grouped 24/44, 24/48, 24/88, 24/96 and 24/88, 24/192.  From my perspective 24 bits is the key, since the original master recordings are typically recorded at that rate.  Vinyl is 24/96 >CD's 16/44 > MP3's according to level of compression.

Isn't a CD technically 16/44.1, in which case 24/88.2 and 24/176.4 would make more sense? ....or are they all the same? o.0

 

 

Also, where did 24/192 come from? I thought that was vinyl and 24/96 was "HD" music distributed through the internet.

Vinyl isn't 24/96, that doesn't make sense. It's just analog. Analog doesn't have a sample rate or bit depth...

You know you're an audiophile when you respect Beca from Pitch Perfect because she uses decent 'phones.

I think he's just rounding the number, those are the actual numbers.
