The big TQ guy might be unappealing, but he's essentially correct. In digital-audio signals are encoded electrically as one of two voltage states, high or low. Neither of them is 0v so essentially it is just another analogue signal, it just happens to contain digital data that can be extracted when filtered.

But he is a massive arsehole, none the less. That photo is just horrible, it looks like an advert for wife beating.

But he learnt that from me, it never even understood the polarity on a 12V car battery before he met me. It was my brains he hacked to line is and his mates pockets.

I'm not surprised that he's a genuine know nothing, those who can do, those who can't steal.

I talk dubious rubbish don't you know . I've had a stroke. No need to be a reticent corrector. ;)

I should know better, my memory for people's names as been obliterated

And yes he was Blair advisor
Even a stroke didn't result in me liking AOS

IMHO that's not a good comparison. Whether the trainers perform any differently is an irrelevance as for 99% of folk they're fashion items and they're prepared to pay for the different colour, style or whatever. Anyone can see the difference compared with your Tesco trainers, the same, perhaps, could not be said for most of the stuff discussed on this thread....
