A HiFace USB converter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Really!!!!!!!!!

Wow, can't imagine how one of the worst USB-SPDIF doo-hickies can improve the sound......................

Not sure who the idiot is. Looks like 2, in that post. Should only be one, but since it is only 1s and 0s.............yeah, 2 idiots.

Not going to touch this one..................

Yes, the DIY world is so much safer, now that folks like us are no longer welcome there.

Someone needs to be the BS filter, but...............hey, not my job. Instead, I will point fingers at the Village Idiot(s), for our private amusement.



Somehow, the world manages to carry on, in spite of itself.

Hey, it is only digital, so it should be ok!

Bits is bits, and it all sounds like the shits.

(At least if the HiFarce is used. It measures like crap, and I hear it sounds worse.)
(How can that be? Bit is bits.)

Check out the movie Sound City.

We're doomed.  At least for a generation.

just a little off-topic, but not so much, i have a stanley car battery charger Product review: Stanley 500-amp jump starter - Autos.ca that I bought at samsclub and it has a 12V 5amp output, and also a USB output, can I use it to feed my Musical Fidelity 12V 500ma device? I think that DC power is a lot cleaner than the standard DC psu that comes with the DAC.

Right.........a car battery charger............sure..............that is really clean and quiet DC power.

Excuse me while I cough up part of my left lung.................

Well...

There's an interesting discussion on switch mode power supplies over here:

Lots of similarities.

You are not going to drag me into that one.

Why don't you go over there, and politely ask if he is the guy who said you can measure impedance, of a SPDIF stage, with just an ohmmeter.

Perhaps you can get him to 'splain how he can do that with a transformer- or capacitor-coupled stage.

You won't even have to bring up the example of the inverting buffer, this time. That is over the head of most at that place.

No, it isn't my intention to drag you into that. It is more interesting, how he is slowly changing his believes and progressing into right direction  :)
Neither will I go over there and start arguing with him, it is useless (see my signature)  ;D
There are much more interesting things I would like to do: got bunch of Citizen's 11.2896M crystals (CSA309) from a friend. Together with my little stock I have now 35 pcs. Need to sort them and find the best 2. Which DBM should I use, since I need one? To what should I pay attention?

While the RCA connector was designed long before S/PDIF audio, S/PDIF audio is at a very low frequency.  RCA connectors do very well with higher frequency video signals.
.....WTF.
Been fixing and listening to audio for waaay too long....

Jocko Homo? that bitter man who founded another forum where the only useful thing that he ever posted was that good BNC connectors are a must for S/PDIF? while constantly ignoring that the whole clocking scheme is backwards and that it has practically created a whole industry? the guy who got fed with it and founded another forum where he never posted anything useful at all? but where he constantly reminds everyone that he hates diyers?
does he qualify as a "dreamer"?

Bitter? YES!

BNC? Of course. (With data to back it up. They only wish they could measure some of the stuff "my" gang can.)

Ignore the clocking scheme? Never. Just have to live with it.

Is it backwards? Yes, but I did not invent it. If I did.................

And, yes..............I hate DIYers. He is proof why.

Putz.

"Pull my finger, dude. Uh, huh-huh."

I know not of this $200 DAC of which he speaks, nor such test he claims doth exists. Methinks he doth protesteth too much.............

VANISHINGLY LOW JITTER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow..............

Hey, putz...............like I said.............you only wish you could measure jitter as low as "my" gang can. You only think it is low, because you can't measure squat.

Go pull your own finger.
