Sound is merely airwaves and no high-end system or low-end one will ever take that away.

I have been a victim of the fake EQ he mentioned too many times...

I've got a vague idea of what's meant by 'fake EQ'. At which point in the video is this discussed? interesting in hearing this.

He means an engineer spending time EQing a track only to realize that the EQ isn't patched into the board.

I think Ethan interjects it when jj is talking about setting up the tube/solid state switch that actually did nothing. Comes after Poppy Crum's talk which is the first talk given.

that happened to me so many times. with the EQ bipassed and me starting to change some value by 1 or 2db thinking I just needed a little something there ^_^. 
I even spent time with the hd650 on my head, trying to EQ it, and the sound coming from the speakers

Now please reconsider; just because of similar "carved in stone" beliefs ( which are as safe as can be, being backed by enough papers and peer reviews and whatnots of the scientific world ) -
 
are YOU 100% sure
 
you are not depriving yourself of something better than what is generally mentioned in these pages as being sufficient to correctly convey the music ?
 
Not even 0.123456789 % doubt ?

No such thing as 100% sure. But it's better than something which I'm 0.01% sure about. Improve that, and we'll entertain you. Or do you suggest you're better than the peer-reviews and all?
 
BTW, CD mats and the recorcdings? And I swear to God, if you don't have them...........

In due time. In half an hour I will be in the concert hall, recording "a" choir.
 
And the recording IS available - in "glorious YT sound" ( derived from MP3 192 kbps made for airing on the national radio ) :
 
 
When I have time sometime next week , I will upload exactly this piece in BOTH original simultaneuosly recorded masters - DSD128 and 192/24 .

So are you going to say you can't tell if he's trolling or just pretending to be stupid. :evil:


Since when is being ignorant or wrong considered "trolling"?

I really don't think most people who accuse others of being trolls even know what the word means. It seems to have devolved into a general epithet hurled at anyone they just don't like or disagree with.

Thanks Steve,
 
A similar thing happened to me where I thought my parametric EQ was active on my system for weeks. Then a particular song's sound made me realize values were reset to null through some mishap or update to the system. I can see that happening again because slight EQ is just what it is slight and it's easy enough to forget to check settings after system changes. 
 
I've never EQ'ed a track though but could see that happening too if I did.

Since the person in question disregards all the evidence offered as to why he is wrong and persists in re-posting the same nonsense over and over without any evidence of his own.

I have done a little update, fixed some broken links, pointed out where the links are broken and I cannot find the original and added and taken away some bits and pieces. There is nothing I can find now that overturns the conclusions I reached back when I started the meta study.
 
That is why my head-fi set up is the same now as it was four years ago, the only change is a new laptop from which I still stream Spotify (Premium to get the better bit rate) to my various headphones.
