Sounding better has very little to do with sampling rate. Higher bit rates offer a better signal to noise ratio, which as to be backed up by the design of the equipment.

And in the case of an engine size, an increased volumetric capacity does not mean more power. The Chevy engine blocks of years gone by were monsters. Things like the 5.7L engine needed a big engine bay. But you can get all that power in a modern day engine of far less than that. Technology has moved on.

So Fully disagree Higher bit rates offer a better signal to noise ratio, which as to be backed up by the design of the equipment.fully agree,

And in the case of an engine size, an increased volumetric capacity does not mean more power. is the implementation of the idea into design. compare two identical engines the only difference is the volumetric size rest of tech variables are hold the same--> that will always mean more power The Chevy engine blocks of years gone by were monsters. Things like the 5.7L engine needed a big engine bay. But you can get all that power in a modern day engine of far less than that. Technology has moved on.synonymous for implememtation of the idea which is the design, more effiicient design etc. etc.

Actually in audio terms, regardless of spec, it's more about the feeling. This is akin to 'which car feels the most powerful', rather than 'which car is measured as the most powerful'. There are many more factors playing into that impression, rather than just one spec.

 

If you want to do a simple fun test for me, just turn on a youtube clip that features a variety of bitrates - e.g. 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p. Listen to each of these and tell me which you feel sounds better?

 

If you don't have a youtube clip off-hand.. can try this so we are all on same page:

Try not to over-think the results if you get them, and just share.

hi quest

 

these resolutions of You tube are primarily video resolutions. They may from case to case say not so much of the audio?

Hi kyrill,

They are video resolutions, but there are also variances with the bitrate of the audio at several steps.

Like I said, don't think too much and just try, and let me know what you think.

I cant my audio setup is based on a pc with no internet access, also the room has no internet access

cheers

TMO, it is the sampling rate during the recording that matters (A/D), not the sampling rate of the playing.

very quiet about this ddc. Has it officially been released yet? Art's website has not been updated for a while either.
Where, if at all, can you purchase this product?

I am genuinely interested in trying this one out.

Cheers

Yeah..............what is going on in Texas................??????????????

Well, we ran into parts problems. And it is the most important part. Long story, and I will not bore you with it. (If you want the long version, you will have to contact us. And then you will only get most, but not all, of the story.)

Yes...........we are working on it. Been working on it. I know..................y'all are tired of waiting. I am tired of not getting paid. (No sales = no pay check. You do the math.)

So, at the present, sit tight. If you are in an EU country, we would like to hear from you. But, you will have to ask why. That is all I can say here.

While I am at it.......................really enjoying reading some of the stuff you guys come up with. Don't quit your day job, ok?

Back to your regular program....................
