    You are an electrical engineer and want a purely scientific explanation for everything. My background is not in EE and I don't feel the need to make some argument. The papers I linked lay the foundation for that argument.

    You can't have it both ways. You could just say, "I prefer hi-res PCM due to my recording experience with it", and leave it at that, and I would have no argument with you.

    But you've brought up technical reasons why you may prefer hi-res or why hi-res is better. At that point, you have invited technical discussion, and all that implies.

    And just as I have not assigned ulterior motivations to your arguments in this discussion, I would ask that you extend the same courtesy to me. We should discuss the facts and leave everything else out.

    I also like to use my God-given brains in addition to my ears. We can measure with far higher resolution than we can hear. However, we do not necessarily know how to interpret the data.

    We are the warm-up act. I noticed that the main show has started on the men's clothing forum.

    It's not easy to show the sound improvements without having a stereo system to playback for each of you. Therefor I choose to show papers that support my view here in the misguided hopes of opening some minds around here.

    That cat with four god-given ears must be the most precise animal on G-d's Green earth. Like a furry Bob Ludwig.

    Bonus points for quoting Ludwig. [​IMG]
