Why do Wav and Flac Files Sound Different?
Well, here is something else which may have triggered my initial puzzlement. When I used to download .flac files from ALLFlac.com I wasn't removing the metadata folder when uploading them to JRiver. However, after converting them to .wav in JRiver... 
Great Interview-
Most musicians can't afford the hobby in the first place. However, most musicians greatly appreciate recording studios with high end equipment.  
Why do Wav and Flac Files Sound Different?
Thanks for the suggestions. I am assuming that stripping the folder of all metadata means the CD cannot be used in a manner such that individual songs can be called up by my transport, i.e, the whole file becomes a monolith that can only be played...

I was just about to do the Crites thing when Sr. passed away. I live only a few hours from them. However, I am reasonably handy with soldering iron and could probably handle installing an upgraded crossover and pure copper WBT fittings shipped to ...

What I didn’t at first quite grok when I got my Cornwall 4’s 4 years ago is that the "bass ports" on the front are really more like horns. They are shaped like the mid and tweeter horns, and there is a lot of air being handled by them; and they ar...

Most important addition to My Cornwalls by far was a pair of REL S812 subwoofers. They have as much to do with modifying the mids and highs as they do with modifying bass. By playing with the crossover in the subs and that interaction with gain ma...
