  • Re: Apple Lossless

    On the plus side, they make excellent substitutes as record cleaner! Just in case there are any hard-core audiophiles out there... this is a joke. Do not harvest hairy caterpillars for cleaning your vinyl... It will not make the sound less "anemic", nor will it add a "sense of dimensionality" hitherto unheard-of in this time-space continuum.

    [quote user="Frederik"] Hi Geoff, Thank you very much for you response, I am looking forward to your blog post! Also a word of appreciation for your blog in general, you provide some excellent material. I regularly refer my students to some of your articles. All the best, Frederik [/quote] Hi Frederik, Firstly, thanks for the kind words! Don't expect the blog posting to come soon. It's no earlier than fourth in the list after an article explaining Jurin's Law and capillary action

    Of course! Caterpillars are very good fountain pen designers! You just have to make sure they get all the work done before they start cocooning...

    [quote user="Norse Code"] I'm aIn the Beolab 50 technical guide in section 5.2.8 it also says the volume is controlled over Powerlink and both should be connected. https://support.bang-olufsen.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042434432-Beolab-50-technical-sound-guide [/quote] Hi, The BL50 TGS that you link to here is a very old version. (Note that some of the text in there is in gray, which indicated that it was a feature or behaviour that was not implemented.) The current version of the TGS

    Hi Frederik, Regarding your sampling rate question: I'll write up a blog posting on my website to discuss this. It's too long to put here, and I need to make a bunch of graphs in Matlab first... However, this mistake that most people make is to assume that the only reason to have a higher sampling rate is to have a higher frequency bandwidth with some link to the limits of human hearing - that link is only one of many arguments for and against high sampling rates. It's the easiest one

    [quote user="laseralex"] [quote user="Geoff Martin"](remember that the CD Redbook format is about to turn 40)[/quote] I'd feel much better if we could all just pretend it's turning 20! [/quote] The first LP record was introduced in 1948. The first CD was released in 1983 - 35 years later. Now it's 2021 - 38 years later - and we think it's news when a streaming service announces that it can deliver CD quality. Then again, cargo pants are back in fashion according

    [quote user="Barry Santini"]I cannot believe for a minute that 20 million songs have a recorded provenance beyond Redbook CD specifications. Sure the songs may be delivered in a hi-res container. But the “candy” inside is still far less than the packaging suggests [/quote] Years ago, Apple started recommending that masters submitted to them for iTunes release should be at 96/24. They also recommended that studios not simply upsample to do this. This was the document they released

  • Re: Beolab 8000 Spikes YES or NO

    There are two defendable reasons for using spikes under a loudspeaker: to go through the carpet to the hard substrate to make them more stable to reduce the coupling between the loudspeaker cabinet vibration and the floor vibration by making a big difference in the mechanical impedance of the two surfaces Since this specific question is about the 8000, there is little-to-no mechanical vibration in the baseplate caused by a mechanical coupling to the woofers or a panel vibration caused by internal

  • Re: Weird problem with H95 turning off

    Hi again, Glad to help! This one wouldn't necessarily be a "normal" problem to de-bug. The only reason I thought of it as a possible answer is that I had the same thing happen to me when driving a pair of H95s with a source that delivers up to 8 V. The headphones immediately got unhappy and shut off... Normal people with normal sources would never experience this problem - but I've never considered myself to be normal... :-) Cheers -geoff
