Home Digital Drive

Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

Excuse me while I genuflect!

Your latest post seems to be a variety of the "argumentum ad verecundiam" fallacy.

And you STILL haven't clarified whether you believe you can hear the supposed "digital stair-steps" on non-Chord equipment. Why did you even bring up the subject then? I suspect it was because you were star-struck by their promo videos, which attempted to show that stair-steps were part of all digital playback, but that Chord had "refined" their approach SO much that their stair-steps were MUCH tinier and less audible. LOL!

And talk about declaring "absolute results":
Headphone listening is much more revealing of DAC performance over standard loudspeaker playback."

Sez you - LOL! BTW, many years ago, I believed that myself - but I've now come to see the error of my old ways! (Well, for one thing, it depends on which headphones and which speakers, doesn't it?)
