350 euro meh. $450 is $150 more than when it came out. Then I have to bring in recabling costs since I'm unable to do such :/

Huh, I guess I wasn't paying attention, then. I passed over the Denon D2k, too, and now those are selling for over their original price on the used market.

Well, whatever. The man wasn't exactly great and his actions caused the deaths of many. But then again, nobody, including me could have done anything different if I was in his shoes. With a gun to his head and family.

I liked the movie "The Last Emperor", and the soundtrack.

What is the difference between lossy and lossless audio?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lossless_audio#Audio

 

Basically, lossless preserves the audio signal, lossy kills some of the signal (oftentimes the treble, bass, and subsequently the soundstage are reduced) to make the file size smaller. Lossy is generally frowned upon in the purist audiophile community because you're playing music with a loss of data from the original source and that lossless is the way to go since the whole signal is kept.

 

Lossy: signal is permanently compressed/cut to make the file size smaller; loss of audio quality

Lossless: signal is kept in its original form, but may be compressed like .zip container (all data is still there, just smaller); audio quality is preserved

 

256 kbps variable bit-rate MP3's are good enough for the most part though. I keep lossless files for archival purposes.

@Bear Kun

 

THANK YOU so fricking much.

 

I got my essay proofread and checked a few times. But man. Reading through your edits showed me JUST how much attention you were paying to the thing. Especially catching the wrong century dates(1600's got me mixed up with 16th century for example) and the use of superscripts and capitalizations and italics. Dam man!

 

Thanks!
