Re: Random thoughts on hifi

Thanks for the clip. Interesting to watch them at work. You are welcome. :-) What I find so interesting is to watch and hear what they focus on. So far away from the audiophile world. Speaking of sound and music. Listen to the last minute (from 5.00) of this: https://youtu.be/sjCVG3mPJUg So beautif...

Re: Random thoughts on hifi

On the subject of sound try this: Snap your fingers in front of your nose and move the hand away from your face and from side to side while snapping them still. What do you think about our ears ability to pinpoint the exact position of the snapping fingers? I find the result interesting in that we c...

Re: Random thoughts on hifi

Regardless the exact placement of the “fist” listening when comparing always for me start with the flow and feeling of the musical timing. Does it relate well to what I experience live? Then comes all the other aspects of music. That is just what works best for me.

Random thoughts on hifi

Imagine a fist right in front of you. You can feel it touching the tip of your nose. Think of this as the music in the studio when the musicians listen back on what they have recorded using their studio monitors. It is a dense full musical listen almost as standing in front of them when they play th...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

hi Thomas thank you for bringing this up - I got real unhappy because when I heard the clips I also preferred option 2 the first round. Than beck wrote he preferred option 1 so I gave up. Maybe there is still hope? I am not failproof and can easily make mistakes. Stick with your own gut feeling and...

Re: Hakai Vs £55 PC

I wasn't saying you were doing it Beck ,what I was meaning was that if someone were to say they prefer a particular clip because of a b and c etc it's hard not to influence someone listening afterwards We agree. That is what bias is and you might be right that making the voting secret is a good ide...

In some ways I think that digital was “pure and perfect sound forever” from the start but our real world got in the way of making it happen! :-) I also think that we are listening to the influence the real world has on the different motherboards and other equipment we use just as much as the motherb...

Re: Hakai Vs £55 PC

The Hak seemed to instill more of an emotional reaction in me without being able to say why and in the GPC the musicians seemed to be playing more together as if they were more aware of each others playing .A backing singer in one particular track made the track sound more like a duet . Now we are ...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

This is one of those times I wonder if the first playing of clips doesn't have a problem. When I first listened to Clip 1 I thought something was wrong. Then I listened to Clip 2 and thought it was better. Then I listened to Clip 2 and Clip 1 a second time, in that reverse order, and preferred Clip...

S versus W, L versus K, A versus B and C versus D are the comparisons that have been posted.

Hakai was L W A and D

Generic PC was S W B and C

11 voted for GPC 13 voted for Hakai

Only one person voted for same streamer and that was FPM who voted for Hakai on every occasion.

Thanks again for helping me out on this,it was very illuminating .
Well, something is wrong with W! :-)

Great kallesprätt! This is this first time I listen to your digital setup and fully get into the music. I think you can guess my preferred clip. I guess so :) It´s crazy what a pair of cables can do! 👍 😃 Digital is easy! ;-) You just have to keep “looking” until you find the music. Voted by pm. One...

Re: It is (almost) all in the setup.

Half a year since I started this thread. Now I can get so close to the “same kind” of sound I get from analog with my cd’s that I no longer hear a fundamental difference between digital and analog. I can put any cd into my cd player and get music out be it HD or just redbook. Remastered analog is en...
