Help settle a streaming argument!
Do you really think all those folks are fooling themselves into thinking they’re hearing something better @soix well actually yes, if they didn’t hear humming or cracking sounds with original streamer. Do you really think none of those folks w... 
Help settle a streaming argument!
If you are truly doing blind listening and observation tests, then I believe you heard differences between good streamers. Whether I would hear differences, I don’t know. But if you just spent $$ for new equipment, put on some music and claim it s... 
Help settle a streaming argument!
A cheap streamer delivers the identical string of bits to a DAC as an expensive streamer. Bits are bits. The only way they could sound different is if one of the streamers is changing bits, or one of the streamers is generating noise into an ampli... 
How to properly stream TIDAL, Qobuz, Deezer, et cetera?
I sure would not want anything modifying the bit stream of a master recording before it enters my DAC.  That is nuts.   IMO the best SQ improvements are made in the analog realm.  DACs, amps, speakers., etc..   Unless the digital equipment is faul... 
What are you using as a streamer? Constructive feedback please.
In a perfect world yes but in reality that’s not true. The voltages that are represented by ones and zeros have residual values that distorts the signal. Oh poppycock. The stream of bits coming out of my Raspberry Pi’s USB is identical to any s...

Speaker Cables? why all the hype for expensive speaker wire?
@millercarbon“To who? Those of us who know have nothing to prove. The onus is not on us to teach, but on you to learn.“With all due respect, you are the one claiming expensive cables make a difference.  I see nothing that scientifically supports y... 
Speaker Cables? why all the hype for expensive speaker wire?
And we should believe all you audiophiles who tell us there is a difference? Until there  is a reputable ABX test done between some cables, I think you are all blowing smoke.3:07 - 5:20https://youtu.be/BYTlN6wjcvQ?t=185 
Speaker Cables? why all the hype for expensive speaker wire?
“Yes cables can sound incredibly different.”   Prove it.
