    Shouldn't we upgrade the 20-20 audible range ?!

    Meanwhile most rooms are an acoustic mess, in terms of early reflections and time decay and the solutions lack any WAF. Same with many recordings that need EQ, This are 2 first irder problems that are begging for a solution.

    Shouldn't we upgrade the 20-20 audible range ?!

    71 yrs old, listen to music can't detect dounds above 12-14k. Funny thing if i hear recordings i have listened to for 50 + years they sound the same to my brain. So i don't care.

    "Music-First Audiophile" Manifesto by John Darko

    So a lot of music I enjoy isn't available in ideal formats (youtube specifically). I hope my equipment can get the most from the recordings. A lot of live performances I love that were never released on record or cd. I don;t care about the shortcomings of the recording if the music is good...

    Do we crave distortion?

    This was long before the Internet or digital storage of files. Became aware of it in the early 70's in some long lost audio book I had at the time. Only things I remember from 50 years ago were meeting my wife and some concerts (GD Winterland 73 and 74 especially).

    Do we crave distortion?

    Of course the issue ofr me is we don't really know what the original sounded like (I am thinking of older recording which I listen a lot to). In that case we need a tone control like the old Cello Audio Pallette rendered in software at a good prince point (ie <$500).

    Do we crave distortion?

    Bell Labs did research in the 60's on what sounds better to humans. Now this was back when we didn't know about TIM even and they were transitioning from Tube "Line Amps" for the phone network. They testing indicated that Humans preferred 2nd harmonic with some 3rd harmonic at lower levels, with...

    How Dangerous is AI?

    I am advocating for the US 1st Amendment, not anarchy. There is a reason the Founding Fathers put that on first.

    The software was designed by Dick Burwen he licensee it to Levinson when he was in his late 80's. Levinson is who he is but the software that Burwen designed is very good. HE is taking credit for the Audio Palette. Which Burwen had built for his own stereo system.

    Not talking about RQ I am talking about a TONE Control, that can be adjusted in real time then saved for each piece of music. I didn't see were JRiver did that. Now the software hasn't advanced much since Burwen designed it, it doesn't support streaming for example. They have samples of...

    Ok A little off topic, but a tone control is a good thing to deal with less than perfect recordings. Richard Burwen designed the Cello Audio Palette in the 1980's he built a version for himself and M Levinson hah him design a version to produce. Heard it at a Stereophile Event in NYC in the 80's...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Why degrade the sound of the Genelec's by using overpriced amps when you could use the better digital amps in the Genelec's not to mention not using the GLM system. Fools and their money.
