Hello.

I'd like to invite all HydrogenAudio members to participate in my 64kbps public listening test, that starts now.

Please head to my listening tests page, instructions are there.

Test ends on September 21st.

Thanks for your attention.

Best regards;

Roberto.

Update: A Java version of ABC-HR has been released. Now, users of MacOS, Linux, Solaris, etc. can also participate.

Further details are available at the presentation page.

Regards;

Roberto.

I had the same error as well-in Mozilla. IE just wouldn't load the page-no error given.

That's WEIRD!

Can you try now, starting at the test home page?

@verloren: Are you around? :B

Ah, much better. Thanks for checking it out smile.gif

Still, something very weird is going on. Probably the server is misconfigured.

Just finished downloading the first sample set.... 12MB.... big on a 56k blink.gif

One question, though: do we post test-results here?

Thanks. Looking foward to seeing what 64kbps format I should use for a little flash player if and when they support it.

EDIT: Disregard that first question for anyone who may have noticed it..... smile.gif

Yes, it is.

Unfortunately, I couldn't wait anymore for Vorbis 1.0.1. The Xiph schedules are not reliable enough, I was fearing I would have to conduce this test in december if I waited for it (I already wasted one week waiting). :B

No! Please! Don't even comment about your results here.

The instructions are in the readme. Send them to my e-mail.

D'oh!

I was headbang.gif trying to find the real audio codec, until I realized the sample files were already encoded for the most part... <sigh>

I'll do my best to help out, downloading the samples now.


Cheers, Joey.

Great work, Roberto! It's really interesting to *hear* the differences between codecs I would have never bothered to test otherwise. I hope many people will participate.

Hehe

Well, sorry about that "rule", but that's needed to avoid people "comparing results".

Something like "oops, Guruboolez rated sample 4 2.2, I rated it 4.5. He has much better hearing, so I must be doing something wrong. Let me edit this result file..."

Also, by comparing results people might find out which codec is which. That is no good :B

Thanks for your comprehension wink.gif

Hmmm.... hate to tell you this, but knowing the codecs involved, I can pick at least two of them out blink.gif

Of course I'm completely objective biggrin.gif
