For more than 10 years, after Philips silently left the market as supplier,
only 3 mechanisms were available: Sony KHM-313 / Sanyo DM-31 /Hitachi HOP-1200.
That's all. No matter if it was a boombox or High End machine worth 9000$, like Accuphase,
who used the very cheap KHM-313.
AFAIK the Sanyo...
Standard is 24/96 or 24/48 (especdially broadcast) but you are darn right.
I am sometimes involved in CD production and never, ever noticed a difference when downsampling
from 24/96 to 16/44.1.
My brain once even tricked me to think the CD sounded better.
I guess the reason is that I was more...
My Sony CDP-101 has 11 microseconds delay. Would be great if this very first consumer player would be reviewed, but
frankly mine is just too precious to be shipped. But a 12 years old DAC will probably perform as well as a new one.
And the mentioned „expensive Marantz“
will nevertheless have...
What do you expect with all the hype about vinyl? The funny thing: No professional sound studio would allow
those "experts" from forums like Head-Fi to set up or measure their studio but an "amateur" like Amir,
who simply relies on signal in - signal out. If the signal is unaltered, the gear is...
I just checked the sine linked above with a mastering plugin that has intersample detection, no clipping.
0dB headroom and -3.3RMS btw. As I can hear the square-like distortion very faintly on a 1-bit DAC
(Sony CDP-X5000) as well as on the Buffalo II, I'll blame it on something else for the...
Recently I tested my Buffalo II DAC from Twistedpear - a 1kHz sine 0dB test tone.
There is a "squarelike" but faint distortion in the upper frequencies.
But before running a verdict, I should mention that the testtone is from 1982,
from an YEDS-18 Test disc made by Sony for service personnel.
nothing new to me. My latest documentary was intentionally recorded almost entirely with a vintage phantom powered Sennheiser MKH416 attached to a mono SIE232 field mixer from around 1978. The defunct SIE competed the SQN3. I knew the film would be black and white so I wanted to...
Thanks for the explanation! There could be a trick to find out,
assuming both vocal tracks analog chain and digital chain are in sync down to the sample.
Invert one, mix both down, maybe the noise gets isolated enough to see what has happened.
I am very happy to announce that my documentary has it's world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, "Berlinale".
So anyone in Berlin can hear the soundtrack from Gert Anklam in an open air cinema.:)
Screening dates and locations will be published on May 20 on the Berlinale...
Thank you very much for your answer.
Could you please explain why the vocal track would suffer if you had applied a lowpass filter
that cuts the vocals above 30kHz? Because if I remember the video correctly, there was no garbage
below - I must guess here because it was not easy to see in the...
First of all the noise starts way over the human voice,
If I remember the video correctly the first peak was about 30kHz, maybe more.
Way, way over the human voice - and it´s overtones (if any) get "buried" by the overtones of
the backing instruments anyway.
No harm done cutting the singers...
