    [quote user="Stan"] Because he wants to, and this proves nothing other than some people have a lot of money to spend. [/quote] I believe you've inadvertently offended half the B&O community How about: because they aspire to the best quality... As a side note, I have listened to a sound system with a separate master clock unit and there

    [quote user="Stan"] First, I think you have a typo... "The transport process is definitely lossless (unless it uses network-based protocols... )". I'm pretty sure that you mean "lossy" (the opposite of lossless) since the rest or your statement talks about the effects of losing data (lower resolution, color degradation

    I promised to myself I won’t get drawn into this type of argument but here it is Audio or video information is transfered to a digital media at a certain resolution and speed (bit rate per second and sampling rate). This concept applies to time domain based signals, mostly those intended to be received in real-time by a consumer (such as voice

    Stan, agree with what you say... that was the gist of my comments also. In short, the AAC 256 Kbps - no matter where sourced from - are inferior to AAC lossless (just to keep things simple). But I need to make this point again, lossless is not lossless. There are so many factors at play here besides the advertisement of a mathematical algorithm. Digital

    [quote user="Puncher"] OK - I can't say I'm convinced - if there is a difference it says one codec (likely the aac) isn't truly lossless, I don't think the hardware has any effect. [/quote] I can assure you there is a difference. I have tested this both on the BM1 and BM5/BS5 (under an audiophile-like setup: i.e. using high

    [quote user="puncher"] If both 1. & 2. are lossless conversions, to what do you attribute the apparent superioity of the wma lossless file? [/quote] Primarily, on a blind test - comparing the same song at the same (lossless) resolution on the BM5. I encourage you to do the same. Now to the speculative part: one is (mainly) Mac and the

    [quote user="moxxey"] No-one said that, as a rule, the new iTunes Plus audio tracks are now 'better' or more 'superior' to those from CD (ie. a lossless digital computer version). However, they are definitely far superior to the old DRM-based tracks that you used to get from iTunes and were ripped from CD. The new tracks are

  • Re: iTUNES PLUS SOUNDS POOR ON BEOSOUND 5...

    [quote user="Puncher"] I understand what you're saying but aren't iTunes plus still only 256Kbps compressed *.aac files? My concern regarding files ripped specifically by the publisher for use in iTunes, iPods etc. would be that they are specifically EQ'd for portable systems, PC speakers etc. [quote user="moxxey"] But

  • Re: BM5 built into BV9

    I believe the BM5 mounting kit for the BV9 set is only useful / required if you want all the cables (i.e. 3 cords from the BS5 head unit and the ML from the BS3 etc.) to be connected at the back of the BV9 using the optional side socket panel. I have installed my BM5 inside my BV9 without this kit in February 09. The only issue is if you want to uninstall

  • Re: Apple Lossless and Beosound 5

    Also, you may find that Apple Lossless audio files played on Windows-based software (i.e. the BeoPlayer / BeoSound media player software loaded on the BeoMaster) have a slightly inferior sound quality than the supported lossless formats (i.e. WMA Lossless). Try a compare of the same sound clip in the two different formats.
