Is computer audio a bust?
Tag, I am with you. While I follow this thread with amusement, it's value, not so much. I am a lover of all that is vinyl(records). Digital always turned me off. Enter the computer. Voila! Now I am in love with digital as well. Quality of sound. C... 
State of the Source: Server, computer....or what?
If you say something enough times, does that make it true? "Crappy USB", "crappy USB"', "crappy USB"............................ No still not true! Well designed music servers have the USB coming right from the mother board, they use silent power ... 
Newbie question re: USB quality
Kijanki,I just noticed you own a benchmark dac1. Is that the HDR? If not it doesn't have USB. How do you even make a comparison? Not only that it was made in 2005. Some things have change in the last close to 10yrs. You preach how your way is bett... 
Newbie question re: USB quality
Actually while I can not speak in tech terms, I have spoken to a few designers of dac's, including emm labs and dcs, they would strongly disagree with your view. (I recently in my last system I owned the Paganini Master Clock and Debussy dac. I on... 
Newbie question re: USB quality
Kijanki,If I wanted to translate something from French to English I would not translate French to German to English. Unless I had no choice. As far as all the "grunge" they speak of, if you have a properly set up USB silent music server going into... 
Is computer audio a bust?
Jesusa0,What USB dac did you use for your comparison? The only Yamamoto dac you list is a YDA 1. As far as I can tell this is not a USB dac. Also it is from 2008 or so. There is a new dac from Yamamoto, a YTA 2 dac. This is a USB dac. It is a bran... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
Nandric,"The whole country is covered with manufacturing towns... a region of fire; reeking with coal-pits, and furnaces, and smelting-houses, vomiting forth flames and smoke." The squire is apt to wax eloquent on such themes."He had the genius of... 
Who needs a MM cartridge type when we have MC?
I have had a lot of very expensive phono cartridges. Including but not limited to, goldfinger, atlas, xs-1, PC-1, 9000 and now an Anna. My favorite the atlas but the Anna very very strong competition. Betters the atlas in a few ways. So it was muc... 
Is DSD download already an extinct format?
It is all just a "niche". Most just get their music off their phones. MP3 is all they know. Moderately priced to high end has always been just a niche but even more so today with so many cheap, awful sounding, easy options. As for converting all t... 
Is DSD download already an extinct format?
Rja, Not angry in the least. Just pointing out that I chose not to spend on a first class cd set up because I saw its demise coming for some time. Sold all my cd's because what's the point once ripped and backed up. Also I did not miss out on musi... 
Is DSD download already an extinct format?
Tomcy6,Really do not know what you are talking about. I have about 3000 vinyl records and 5000 + ripped CDs and down loads. 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's and through today. I have missed nothing. When I say skipped CDs did not mean music meant CD... 
Is DSD download already an extinct format?
Stuck with vinyl, for the most part skipped CDs. But what I had bought, I ripped to a music server and sold back to a used cd store. Down load now. Wait for sales, 10, 15 sometimes 20% off. Mostly HD tracks. Tried DSD heard no real advantage. Don'...
