    Recording quality?

    Quote:   I feel your pain, Californication and Death Magnetic? BUt more seriously, for records you are asked to master (and not re-master), how often do you have wonder if the guy who mixed had an idea of sound quality?

    Recording quality?

    Quote:   Have you ever gotten mixes/recordings that were so bad that you went "no amount of mastering can save that, re-record and redo the mix please!".

    Anedio D2 DAC release

    That's strange, if you feel that you need to push past 60 with classical, it's obvious that classical at 60 is still less loud than pop at 40. Besides, how do you think an amp is going to solve your volume issues? By getting the headphone to play louder, that's how. Incidentally, that can also...

    Old music recording remaster process ?

    We are talking of two different things, you are considering the technology from the pov of the record collector and I'm considering it in a general pov.

    What does 24/96 mean?

    Quote:   Another example of sampling rate and bit depth.   - Screen resolution is a 2 dimensional sampling rate, horizontal and vertical, the point is that once you get past the "Apple Retina" resolution (~300 dpi), there's no visible progress any more. It's the same for audio. Peer...

    12 Extremely Disappointing Facts About Popular Music

    Quote:   My guess is that superstars are only possible in certain environments, I don't think it's a matter of talent, but of the general public prizing itself to have individual tastes, of originality being celebrated. The ease of access of more music than ever is also playing a role...

    12 Extremely Disappointing Facts About Popular Music

    Quote:   That doesn't really change my point, we aren't in the era of super stars any more, for example, Florence + the Machine is talented, will she sell as much as the Rolling Stones? I think not. Any album list is not only related to how talented the artists are, it's more a rating...

    12 Extremely Disappointing Facts About Popular Music

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Not at all, I have on very rare occasions seen dragonfruits in France, but I've never seen sugar-apples, I presume it's the same in the Netherlands. If you have Asian markets newr where you live, that's usually where you can find really exotic fruits, like durians ( :D ) for example.
