    Default Digital or Analogue

    Found this on Youtube - seems perfectly sound to me . . .

    Current kit :
    Music library (FLAC) on IMac or streamed via Qobuz. Fed wirelessly to Raspberry Pi / Allo Digione and into Lyngdorf digital amplification. This handles room correction and drives a pair of Quad 2905 electrostatics.

    Couldn't get past the uber-annoying sound of his voice.

    Had to give up after about a minute.

    I couldn't get past the fact that he doesn't blink!
    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    Now I see where the annoying egotism of our own media 'journalists' comes from, (BBC, C4 etc), ; patronising voice, speaking as though what he has to say is some profound new philosophical insight, and waving arms which is probably repressed aggression, and a way of being invasive into the space of the recipient.

    I think there is another video in this series that explains why wearing a polo neck with a suit is a bad idea.

    His first sentence is pretty much spot on though. Once you are past a certain level of quality from the source, other factors become far more important.

    Yes I think he was right in what he said.

    I've always felt, with audio gear, that above a certain level of quality in a system any tweaks and changes make a difference to the overall sound rather than "improve" it.

    Whatever "improve" may mean...

    There's something about the background and his polo-neck top, I kept expecting his head to detach form his body and float off into a corner, like something from The Day Today https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygx-sEb5tgQ

    I'm broadly with him.

    At the risk of seeming to jump on a bandwagon, he also needs some coaching not to rock back and forth when presenting. I was reminded of Weebles.

    Hmm... I've never been to a presentation given by a Weeble.

    Actually, scratch that, yes I have.
