    The merits of high fidelity audio in the real world

    Yeah a quick google suggests that most pro audio processing tools utilise floating point processing. If that is the case, I'm curious are there really any areas along the processing chain where high bit depth is of any benefit? Providing of course you are of the opinion that the redbook...

    Depends on the design, but yes if it's supplied then I would use it.

    [Impression] FiiO E10

        My previous one was an e7 I think. Similar dac/amp, the display died on that one, along with one of the volume buttons. I'm living on a different continent to where I bought the e10, so I don't think I'll bother trying to return it. Cheers anyway.     Thanks for the suggestion, but...

    post your grado mods....

    Guys I need new earpads for my SR125s, they're turning to dust on me. Are there any comfy velour options/mods that are an easy fit? Also where is the best place to get the thickest and softest pleather/leather headband? Cheers

    [Impression] FiiO E10

    Yes the thing sounds fine, but the whole reason I bought it was to reduce noise. And here I am with a noisy volume knob. This it the second fiio product that has died prematurely on me, and will be the last product I buy from this company. Not impressed.

    Synergistic Research HOT device

    Bare in mind nobody so far claiming to hear an audible difference has done so through a blind test. If an audible diffence can be identified during a blind test i.e. the subject can identify the hot every time, then I would indeed expect that to be quite easily measurable. Generally speaking...

    I truly believe these are one of the best Classical Music headphones I've ever heard

    I love dt990s they are my current favourite can. I don't listen to too much classical but I found them reasonable in terms of isolation. Though I think on a bus with classical music, particularly if there are lots of quiet passages it might become a little annoying.

    MQA: Revolutionary British streaming technology

    I'd probably have something nice to say too if I was invited to the top of the shard for wine and canapés. When I was studying in London there were enough recruitment nights for the big investment banks and consultancy firms that I could get sloshed for free about 4 nights a week!

    Synergistic Research HOT device

    No, it just means it's not measurable. But, you have to be clear on what you mean by audible, as stated above by others. An audible difference to me means you are able to detect it under a blind test. Which will almost inevitably mean you can measure it too.

    Synergistic Research HOT device

      The problem for Synergistic Research is credibility.   If they at least made a claim that sounded even remotely plausible, like there was some capacitive/crossfeed effect in the HOT, then people might not be so quick do brand them snakeoil salesmen. Saying RF radiation (which incidentally...

    Synergistic Research "Atmosphere"

    For 2k you could probably buy enough chicken wire to turn your entire listening room into a Faraday cage and not have to worry about solar flares.

    Tidal lossless listening test, what's going on here?

    Yeah sorry, typo. I transcoded the lossless flac!
