That had immense sentimental value, though! (Plus, it made a few people laugh.) Doing a hearing test is too boring for my tastes, until I start publishing audio reviews, at which time it would be of more practical use.

I've read that. It's a good test, but only uses a limited range of equipment. To really disprove these assertions, you would have to do the test using the systems of the people who made the claims, since the entire reason it supposedly sounds different is due to limitations and/or complications of said equipment.
Well I would trust these objective tests over others' undisclosed methods' claims, which don't have any real value behind them. Besides, if it really were due to other equipment, then I think it would be the fault of the equipment and not the file format itself, as concluded in Part 1 of the above test. I have yet to see statistically significant evidence that the format itself sounds different.

I heard it's like L4D with vampires and magic. I'm slightly interested....

No interest in boosting your audiophool ego? Wow. People here on HF went nuts with this test when it first came out.

Nosgoth is actually decent? I was so damned disappointed to see Squeenix reduce the once great LoK to some F2P ********. I really hope they take that dormant franchise and breathe some life back into it since vampires are hotter now than they've been in forever.

Are they?

You tried to natively install Linux on OS X? It is possible, but hardware support was very lacking back then. I'm not sure how it is now, but I installed Ubuntu and Windows XP on my 2008 aluminum MacBook back in 2009.

Isn't there a setting for that?

 

btw, did I mention my server is actually a mac mini?

I deeply regret getting it now but hey, it's usable.

Yeah, that and zombies. Look at the global success of stuff like Twilight, Walking Dead and Young Adult fiction in general. That stuff's been "in" for awhile now

Oh man, this second Higurashi soundtrack has some exciting tracks.

But you hear files + systems, not files by themselves. The fault would lie in how the equipment plays the files - everyone can agree on that in hypothetical terms. I trust the objective tests more as well, but until you conduct those tests on the systems of the ones making the claims (or at least more systems in general), they don't have nearly as much use.

Huh, I had the feeling the whole vampire thing died down quiet a bit.
Zombies are more popular than they ever were, though.

Hmm, still need to catch up. I'm at ep 4 or so right now

The annoying thing is that I read JoJo only a few months ago. All of the little plot details are still fresh in my head, which makes it slightly boring to watch.

I found some website that claimed vampires exist, but are merely afflicted by a virus giving them an iron deficiency. XD

 

Resident Evil is the only zombie franchise I care about. I can tolerate anime vampires as well.
