I had all my harddrives in the closet. It has nothing to do with ambient noise. It's all about the RFI/EMI noise and resonances in the computer that alters the flavor of sound.

If audiophiles were so gullible, it would be very easy to make them believe that cables don't make a difference. I have done all the blind tests.

Yes, when mp3, or any other compressed file is converted to WAV it sounds smoother, this is because it uses less CPU power.

FLAC doesn't sound flat. Networked storage doesn't sound flat either, it sounds edgy and bright. The best is playing the files from SSD, with the files converted to WAV. I even have my mp3's...

The audiophiles are busy getting great eargasms from listening to their cables. I believe there are more audiophiles than there are skeptics. 1 skeptic writes more posts than 1000 audiophiles. The...

There was a guy who could remember 100.000 digits of Pi, he translated the numbers into a story. Audiophiles who hear differences between cables do a similar thing. They don't remember the music as...
