holy shit
my ears were tingling
it actually was PLEASANT to listen to
I know it sounds crazy or "yeah I know it's pleasant that's why we like music dumbass"
no you don't understand
it felt good to listen to this, STARK difference from my iPhone and itunes version of the trck

There is a difference between your shitty iPhone, correct audio gear and over expensive audiophile memes.
Anyone spending more than 500€ for the whole dedicated audio stuff is a retard (or is an actual sound engineer, but audiophiles and music consumer aren't).

I'm pretty sure some of the mastering process involved digital, I really doubt they did send an analog tape to the vinyl manufacturer.

The placebo effect is an amazing thing, it's why so many "all natural" remedies sell so well. As long as people believe something is working they'll throw money down the drain.

You guys are getting bamboozled by how audio works.
This table is about the sound frequency itself, not sample rate.
But it's quite easy to "translate", as you only need 2 samples to make a square wave change, so you just double the frequency on that table to get the sample rate.
Kids listen to up to 32 Khz sample rate, old people go up to 22 Khz.
But that's only for perfect square waves, for anything more detailed you need more samples or you get shit aliasing.

Just follow a '$200' rule.

That no piece of equipment should cost more than $200 In my personal opinion, $200 is when diminishing returns kicks in, not to mention, there's the question of whether you can even tell the difference.

>> No.67642141

Well, i was thinking more on the case of non sine waves, but you wouldn't be able to listen to it anyway.
I don't remember exactly why CD-Audio aim at 44Khz instead of 32.

Well when you find music encoded with these ayy lmao wave shapes you let us know.

44.1 kHz was chosen because some faggots hacked video recording devices to encode audio using lines in interlaced video and people lapped that shit up because reasons.

Old-school engineer grandpa mentioned that there's some valid reasoning behind this--that since all sound and music is inherently analog, it's more naturally processed through an analog tube. Say whatever about accuracy though.

Music is a vibration of atoms that is made by an instrument or a speaker, the way that the speaker is excited is not that relevant IMO (usually by electricity).

Tube amps are good because the way they manage the signal, it gives it a special sound. I don't know what the fucks is your grandpa saying about the analog processing, but that sounds as a meme.

Properly cleaned vinyl recorded on modestly high-end equipment can basically be considered an nth generation master of the track. You can't really say that about CDs unless the album was mastered incredibly poorly to the point where it doesn't matter.
