We understand that some would like measurements beyond 20hz to 20khz. Part of the problem is with different recording mediums and the possible distortion that can occur. Within reason going above and below the frequency range can add to the sound due to harmonics even if you don't hear the primary frequency. But this can be a problem on some recordings. 20hz to 20khz covers most everything that is in recordings and goes beyond most content. I will ask our engineers to see what they get with further measurements but I am not sure how much value this will add to the conversation.
Thanks Paul, that's great to know and very helpful to understand.
I tend to only move in Hires / vinyl rip circles so perhaps I am a little unrealistic in appreciating the needs and wishes of the general populace?
About 95% of my audio is 24/96 to DSD with a minumum of 24/48 Flac's. I have a few well produced CD's but not many
It just surprised me as I just assumed that those buying a device of this calibre and price would naturally be listening to HiRes and not 'just' cd quality?
I think your right though in that beyond 'properly' ripped vinyl, even with the most recent publicily available options of so called 're-mastered Hi Res Studio Master type audio' there isn't that much [certainly popular] music that is recorded/produced/mastered well enough to really make the high res worth while
These Hi Res files are often less than desirable in terms of quality - even those that have been just upscaled from 44/16 !! :/
20-20 is certainly fine, especially when implimented in the way that you do with the devices that you guys so skillfully create
but there are some of us who both appreciate & expereince the more [all be it subtle] emotive and dynamic benefits of high res :)
I have no doubts though that I would not enjoy the DX200 >less< for the 20-20 frequency response !!
