    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.

    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...
