a short thank you for a site that stands out from the regular audiophile idiocy of sites like audio asylum, audiogon, and unfortunately even DIYaudio where the pest of unsupported claims freely peddled as ultimate truth is an ever increasing phenomenon.
Thanks for the sanity.

This is what happened unfortunately at DIYaudio where claims were posted that different flac players sounded differently - foobar, media monkey, winamp, dpowreamp etc.
Yeah the differences were clearly discernible etc....no explanation how and no measurement ...the usual audiophile bull. I finally decided not to participate at DIYaudio anymore, especially in the PC section, the atmosphere became rather dense....now they even have an diy audiophile hardrive featured...oh the humanity.

I remember the time having some nice discussions with a kind of strong inventing people like Peter Daniel at diyaudio smile.gif
I learned many things over there.
Nelson Pass founded these forums for a reason and people i know from the audio business HIGHLY regard Mr. Pass!
Nice i find how the member "phofman" tries to bring in some reasoning to the PC-based section but sadly drownes in the mass of myths.
