edit: did not read the last pages. Im sure i failed and you decided already.
my point about the iphone was, if people spend $650 on one, why not spend $800 on a pmp. i wouldn't mind hearing your comparison on the dx100 vs your $150 setup
I actually have a set of those with the mixamp and a case. Great for gaming but too bulky to carry around.
i have not decided yet and probably won't until next month. it seems i have a good amount of option for $400. I would love to justify spending the cash on something like an iBasso but i just cannot at this point. i think im going to start with a decent set of IEMs and a mid range amp. i will need to start ripping my CD collection to FLAC. (yes i do own CDs. I have hundreds and hundreds of them!)
I have hundreds of CDs too! Welcome to the new milenium!
you misspelled millennium.
speaking of CDs, do retailers like AMAZON and ITUNES sell FLAC audio files?
So did you I'm posting from my fone, be glad I even made it that far lol
Pretty sure they both do. I don't waste $$$ on that stuff
apparently you spell millennium differently in canada?
Really? You want to troll me on spelling?
What is this place coming to
Thanks for another post!
I was supposed to be out of this thread 3 posts ago!
huh? not trolling. you said i spelled the word wrong and then i corrected you. it doesn't matter either way. but judging by your other posts in this thread it is you that is trolling.
anyway, back on topic!
I think he's trying to see how blatantly he can troll before people start to pick up on it... at first it was kind of subtle but the last few posts, you can tell he's upped his game
Well, your grammar sucks.
Get back on topic everyone.
iTunes sells ALAC, which is loseless. You will be able to convert it to another loseless like FLAC.
Amazon still uses shitty lossy
ok, what about mp3 rippers? apparently the droid phone I have only supports mp3,wma,eacc+, and wav. should I rip to a high bit rate mp3 or just copy the wav files over?
The highest quality MP3 is probably enough only minor artifacts from the compression. You can rip/convert to WMA lossless if you have FLAC/ALAC/WAV source.
You will be extremely hard pressed to differentiate between a high bitrate MP3 and a lossless, so I wouldn't be bothered and just enjoy the music. Of course if you can hear the difference its time to get a lossless music player.
yes, but what software do I need to do that?
All digital is lossy. Period. Sound is NOT digital, it is analogue. Hence your ADC/DAC. Lol
Windows media player & your favorite muzic app that supports your files is all you need. It is that easy!
You can use EAC, dbpoweramp or windows media player for WMA rips from CD.
Good to know. I doubt on a pair of $150 IEMs I will be able to hear the difference. The music needs to be clear and crisp and I think a high bit rate mp3 and a descent portable amp will provide for that.
ah yes, eac. i will go with that. what blows is that i have hundreds of CDs ripped using itunes lossless audio codec on my wife's desktop. it is great for partys and also great because i can play music from anywhere in the house to other systems in the house. very neat tech that is easy to use. my phone though doesn't play M4A so now i have to rip a bunch of cds all over again
You can just recode them to WMA lossless (or any other format) via dbpoweramp or other program. ALAC is open source now so I expect that there are other programs that can do it as well.
I don't know about eac, but db is nice because it uses all your cores at once.
Foobar2k will rip/convert to FLAC if you have FLAC installed. Pretty painless..
Foobar can also convert if you have the correct things installed.
yea id rather not waste my time. the built in tools by dbpoweramp should be enough.
Has anyone tried tube amplifiers?
What can I expect when using a tube amplifier?
