    My question is why does it matter if the sound stage is the result of recording musicians as they play, or is created by an engineer. It is still a sound stage either way.
  • Re: Want to stick my toe in the "power cord" pool...

    So. I am 68 with a bit of tinnitus in my left ear, and I can hear power cord, and other cable, improvements in sound. It is obvious. I have some state of the art power noise conditioning gear, and as Skip said, you don't realize the 'noise' is there until it is gone.
  • Re: Noise theory...Internal SSD, USB HD, or DNLA

    The whole issue is the interface where data is turned into 1 and 0, and then into analog.

    Some argue that an Ethernet cable can't affect the sound since it only carries 1 and 0. However, an Ethernet cable carries an analog signal that represents 1 and 0. The cable can degrade that signal, and jitter can be introduced as the receiver turns that analog signal back into 1 and 0. The CRC might be correct, but jitter is now there.

    The point is, with music, everything can affect the sound.

    That certainly is convenient. Make accusations, yet provide zero data to support it. Joe McCarthy ring a bell? :)

    This place is as dead as you make it guys. We can liven it up by posting, yes the simple act of posting increases search engine results for one and that's important. Another suggestion, with newbies that log in, welcome them! Involve them but don't belittle or insult them, a touch of honey goes much further than venom. Simply put, be more friendly, hell it can't hurt.

    Ken, I agree with your post, but I don't think that is the issue. The real problem is Vanilla, and the heavy handed Taliban style moderation that has completely eliminated discussions and differences of opinion. That is what is driving people away, and keeping people from joining. Who cares about a forum where everything is the same and bland, which is the modern definition of Vanilla. Which is to bad, since I love French Vanilla ice cream. :)

Howdy, Stranger!
