What?! Cost-benefit ratio is in the toilet. Lithium batteries are far cheaper and offer rock steady voltage until they expire.

What on earth are they talking about? What home equipment uses batteries? Would you put a $100 battery into your $150 portable?

AND YOU CAN'T RECHARGE THEM?!

i hate all this audiophile BS but batteries can definately make a huge difference.

The battery's internal resistance determaines how quickly the power supply can supply current for transients. Capacitors in the powersupply are basically "fast batteries".

definately makes a hell of a lot more of a difference than cables and powerstripes combined.

that said, a $5 NimH battery will be more than good enough for most battery-powered equipment and can sound noticably better than alkaline, carbon-zinc, etc...

Actually thomas, I just did some research, and I agree


Batteries improving sound actually seems alot more...well...scientifically believable than cables (note, I am not trying to start a flame way, I never said cable do not matter).

What do ya recommend that aren't rechargables? I currently have Duracell Coppertops? They any good? I have an Airhead coming soon.

for an Airhead, any good, hogh capacity NiMH rechargeables will work great.

Which Airhead? 3volt, 4.5 volt or 9 volt.

I have a 3 volt TAH that I run on Panasonic 1600mah NiMH's and it's great.

Just got a 9 volt TAH that right now is running on alkalines. Plan to get a wall-wart when Headroom gets them and probably some Plainviews.

dunno much about individual brands, its impossible to find that information.... But in general, any NimH or Nicad will do better than an alkaline.... for non-rechargeables, probably go for the lowest price/longest life, which would be low-cost alkalines like rayovac maximum/radioshack.... Duracel Ultras are the one type that do have significantly longer life than others, but for double the cost, they;re not worth it. Avoid carbon zinc, aka "heavy duty" batteries as they have less than half the capacity of an alkaline...

I've noticed some alkaline batteries give noticably worse sound on my GameBoy Advanced to the point of noticable background humming. Nimh's cleaned that problem up entirely.

If batteries matter on a handheld portable in regards to sound, it also matters in portable amps. But generally I go for the best price-performance NIMH batteries. Unfortunately although the AA Nimh battery market is well established and I know what is good or not for cheap, the 9V Nimh's don't seem to have too much going on besides the PlainViews which I might get eventually.

PRESS RELEASE: AUDIOPHILE SCEPTIC

New York, NY - Is your audio forum getting dull and lacking interesting controversies? No good flame wars lately? Need some lively debate? You need new Audiophile Sceptic! Audiophile Sceptic is a new application to be run in conjunction with your hi fi forum software. It has these features:
  1. every few months a new "Audiophile Sceptic" will be let loose in your forum
  2. sometimes your Sceptic will tell you he's an engineer, but really he will just be a technician
  3. often your Sceptic will be someone who has read an article somewhere which he demands that everybody reads
  4. your Sceptic will have a familiar repertoire of lines, so you can always use the same answers for every Sceptic
  5. favourite phrases of your Sceptic will be "double-blind testing", "proof", "that difference you consistently hear, you only think you hear", "cable companies are laughing at you", "you are all deluded", "there is only inductance, capacitance and resistance" etc etc
  6. your Sceptic will have annoying mannerisms, like posting ONLY IN CAPITAL LETTERS or posting very long messages with no punctuation or paragraphs, or sometimes will post message after message to get his point across
  7. your Sceptic can be guaranteed to start a fun and exciting flame war - we've tested our flame war subjects on many hi forums and in the letters pages of hi fi magazines, and we know that they can generate heated debate every single time!

So what are you waiting for? Download your Audiophile Sceptic now and liven up your forum with repetitive debate on uninteresting subjects!

"We downloaded audio forum and couldn't believe how much longer our letters pages got!" ... Stereophile

"This Audiophile Sceptic idea is great!", said a spokesman for "Audio Asylum, "whenever things get quiet we just push the Audiophile Sceptic button and out he pops - "cables make no difference", he always says, and they take the bait every time! Weeks of entertainment!"

"Audiophile Sceptic is great fun," said Soundstage, "but how do you turn him off ... ?"
