Non video/audio philes?
But read this poster's thoughts - he is not Joe6Pack. BUT read where he was and now where he is going. Same thing applies to video...
"Me...former, reformed, audiophile
The ipod and children changed my ways...the music is more important then the gear.
That said...Sandi, my Neodigits does HDCD, not DVDA..... http://www.neodigits.com/new/body/pr...4000/h4000.asp
Kevin, yes, both formats SUCK...they sound manipulated. Stereo still is best. While I will admit to loving good vinyl, I still think good digital is dollar for dollar far better. My 10+ year old digital front end (Audio Alchemy DDS Pro transport, DTI Pro 32, and MSB Full Nelson Link Dac) which is low end audiophile....or rather, value audiophile, sounds better then my current analog front end (Music Hall MMF w/Grado gold cartridge, and Pro-Ject el cheapo phono pre-amp) at comparable value level. This goes through my Audio Alchemy OM150 (dual mono rig) amp, Audio Alchemy pre-amp and NHT 2.5i speakers. Cables, as above...analog are Kimber (including speaker). I have a bunch of other $$$ spent on power cables and stations...but thats all BS. I rarely listen to that system. I listen to almost everything through my Pioneer HT receiver, (new) HSU speaker system (replaced B&W...yikes!!!) and Ipod."
They certainly are not UNeducated - not a single one.
