Re: Hi-res sample rates - a genuine improvement in SQ, or a marketing trick?

The point is that maybe its just the fact that the filters for high res dont fold back in title audible spectrum that makes high res sound better, not the higher res itself. Hence my prior advice to eliminate both confounding results from dac data path and mastering differences before assuming one k...

Re: DIY thoughts of the day

Thetes nowt wrong with omnis. They arent my cup of tea for critical listening though.
