Why does an Audio site like head-fi.org not accept MP3 uploads?

    I’ve got some audio comparisons. I would use you tube excect for 3 reasons.

    One is it’s using copyrighted material, but in fair use. I take a 5 minute movie clip and compare DTS-> Dolby converision vs native dolby being processed on either Xbox Ones Dolby Atmos Headphone App, vs a Turtle Beach X41 piped in from the Tolsink port. It’s mainly used as an audio compairson, which should be a reasonable academic and non-profit use.

    Second is I want only audio, because if you use sight and sound, it dims the sound alone. You’re attention si split betwen eyes and ears. I just want to focus on the ear aspect. One of the relative things tested is direciotnalism. I contest 2 of the 4 ways have more centered, less obvious directionalism, as well as trebles and basses. But I don’t want to bias it by saying which is which.

    Third is I don’t want YouTube, because Youtube require pictures, usually moving pictures, and that a) takes more editing work than just dropping the MP3 file, plus even on iMovie, editing time plus video processing time for 4 5-minute videos is a lot.. And b) my Maximum outbound bandwidth is 400 kb/s, adding video every frame is not an efficient use of neither the network nor my time. when an MP3 file is perfectly fine.

    Is something wrong with my MP3 files or does Head-fi.org not allow MP3 uploads? Where Can I lead people to take the test themselves?
