I've always thought Seth Rogen was a rather unfunny schlub. I'll never forgive him for what he did to the Green Hornet.

I watched a few minutes of an early 70s "women in prison" movie on Netflix the other day, and I must say, the completely untamed growth in the shower scene was unappealing.

Good post, but I believe there's an additional factor at work: Some people simply do NOT buy into the very concept of digital audio at a fundamental conceptual/philosophical level. They won't fully...

What you call "intellectual or supposed rationalization" is what most other people call scientific and engineering reality. Digital is superior in every meaningful measurement. That's a fact.

What I remember about the Sonic Holography setup was that it made recommendations that make sense for any two channel setup--make sure the speakers are equidistant and eliminate early reflections.

What I find funny about the purchasers of audio jewelry is that almost all of them will swear up and down that they're PURE, ie, SOLELY interested in spending that much to get better sound, and...

That's rather low end compared to some of the systems I've heard at various shows.

I say otherwise. So do most people, including most people in the High End market.

I wasn't referring to the limiting of loud signals so much as the boosting of low level signals (to deal with the inherently higher noise of vinyl).

Unbroken

Saw this last night at an AES preview. I thought it was quite well done. Good performances. Quite a tribute to the human spirit.

I gave up on vinyl not long after CD came in. It was such a liberating feeling not to have to deal with ticks, pops, surface noise, cleaning rituals, etc. etc. There was NOTHNG about CD that wasn't...

The thread title isn't worded well. It should be "screenshot". "Shot screen" sounds like your screen has seen better days.

Why wouldn't the Endurance remain in orbit around the planet? Why is that less safe than being on the planet?

It makes no sense why that would be the case. It would only be orbiting at an altitude of a few hundred miles, which wouldn't be enough to cause a significant difference in the gravity. Of course,...

My assumption is that the choice was based on what they wanted in the story. They wanted to show a black hole, so that's where they went.
