A minor annoyance from the former OCN Audio Editor

Yes, I'm back for now.

TL;DR: Sorting out life matters > OCNing.

A minor annoyance.
Standards have slipped since I was away frown.gif

What happened to recommending for the need and recommending source products backed up by scientific measurements because of the FUD that surrounds sources and it's marketing?

Also the sooner many people get that you cannot judge a source by it's DAC chip alone, the better. It's the circuit / implementation that counts FAR more, and that can only be measured fairly via objective measurements. A good analogy is judging a car's preformance solely based on it's engine. That's flawed because if the handling / steering is bad and it's brake system isn't very good and the car is a death trap safety wise, then it's not a very good car no matter how good the engine is and what the engine is theoretically capable of is it?

A car with a 'slower' engine that has a great brake and handling implementation and has better aerodynamics will always preform better.

Please stop judging DACs / source solely based on the DAC chip it contains. It is majorly flawed to do so.
The only thing that can be judged subjectively is the GUI of the source and how easy it is to use for you.

Scientific facts? LOL. I remember how you try to argue that sound card X is better than sound card Y because its SNR is 120 rather than 115 and completely ignore that no one could possibly hear the difference between that.

Then you just backtrack all the way to implementation or whatever.

Your implementation is no good, Cuad. Your argument is invalid!
