    FLAC ?

    M4A is the file container for the ALAC format. Quote:   On the subject of what format to go with - go FLAC all the way. Unless, you absolutely must use itunes. There are other great players out there that can take advantage of FLAC (a superior format) as opposed to being stuck with...

    I too have demo'd some McIntosh integrated amps, and though I was floored by what they did with speakers, I wasn't very impressed with the headphone outs. I couldn't tell you exact model #s with any certainty but they were relatively recent models i'd say. sp70.

    Maverick D1 for headphone

    I tend to agree and disgree with you. I thought the headphone out of the D1 was a little bass shy and bright, but with a (cheap) OPAMP swap it changes alot. Though, the tube output of the Mav with a good tube like the upgrade GE or the WE396a vastly improves its SQ. I think the mav would be a...

    Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1/A1 vs Little Dot MkIII

    I'd wait then, seeing as the A1 is not yet out. Theres no telling how it will stack up between the MKIII, in a few weeks though there should be some reviews up. Lastly, if you want to drive speakers, then the A1 is the only way to go. sp70. Quote:

    Test: "Original" vs. "2002 128kbps mp3" vs. "2010 128kbps mp3"

    Eucariote:   My results were completely different. I got the lossless vs everything else right, but mixed the two 128kbps up. To my ears, there was a huge difference between the lossless and the other two, but both the 128s sounded quite similar to me. In other words, 128 is still 128. ;) sp70.

    Audio-gd Digital Interface

    At the bottom of the page it says: "Now we are burning both our USBface and hiFace, once we finished burn in, we will compare their sound level.  If our USBface sound worst, we will kill it."   Sounds right to me. ;) Hopefully they are onto something though. sp70.

    I wish I could find where I read it, but I heard it was no good - i'll try and find it again. Also, I am way too excited about this release, probably my favorite album, getting released in its full 24/96 glory. sp70. Quote: ...Definitely waiting for that price to come down though. ;)
