I simulate both of these modes with MiniDSP units. But I find there is very little there in the (front - side) mode.

Waste of time and money, and furthermore this invites HDMI connection issues. Optical HDMI only makes sense over 100 feet.

That's true. My guess is they had molds left over from another project and just used them. Being first, their "standard" stuck????

My guess is that the Vanity uses an isolated RCA jack and has the balanced signal on it lacking the ground or shield. That's perfectly OK for a small system. Connector impedance is not critical up to...

I agree. It's just another piece of audiophile jewelry. And if you buy it based on that, fine. Prada and Chanel also do very well. As you said, you can buy a good online UPS for a fraction of that...

Yes we do. You are thinking of audio dymanic range compression.

Semantics!

My point was they are not loss-less. Boosting any frequency is called amplification. That means noise is increased.

I always considered Dolby and DBX analog compression technology....

LOL.

You read all this audiophile press about jitter in digital systems that when measured is well over -100db. Yet nobody seems concerned about the wow from an LP. I don't care how accurate the...

You already have Dish, why not just call them and get a Dish PVR? As you never had one before I'm sure they have new customer deals. They do take care of loyal customers.

Interesting audio factoid!

Theta and ATI are located on the same small city block as the defunct USA headquarters for Teac! Remember them in the 70s and 80s?
