Way to ride in here and play high and mighty, Grant. Is this kind of post what we have to look forward to now in FLO 2.0? :cry: Gee O Are Tee Eee, or however he writes it, has started up his own little snakepit so you guys can further go underground. You can have all the fun you want there. I'll be...

OK, Grant, let's put a few issues to rest: - I don't believe you are a racist. You do have some xenophobic issues towards Mexicans. However, I do not live in southern Arizona, so I cannot begin to understand your issues. I'm not xenophobic, but that's a matter of interpretation. Again, one must liv...

I am glad to see that so many of you have Luke's best interests at heart. :roll: Seriously, all you want is your place to bitch and deride sh.tv. It doesn't matter to you how that reflects on Luke. You're not here to discuss music or any meaningful topics. If that was your objective, you would do i...

Luke does not "cave in to anyone. He does what he wants. I've known him long enough to know that much.

I didn't read much of this Rantz stuff, but I'm curious how the concept of a "Snakepit Troll" is even possible. A troll is basically someone who types bullshit designed just to get a reaction, and that would pretty much describe about 80% of the content in the Snakepit. But isn't a troll also someo...

Hahahahahaha! Hey I think I suggested something like this many months ago! Oh, but I guess this is also another plain WRONG idea from a possibly not bright person, eh? :roll: Gloating isn't the hallmark of a "bright" person. Gloating about something that hasn't happened ("deletion"), even less so. ...

The Minuteman Project

The Minuteman Project has been a success! It has shown to frustrate would-be illegal entrants into this country.

It's a damn shame that it takes common citizens to do what the US government won't!

And no, the interconnect is highly unlikely to have actually influenced your result, you fool. One might guess his transfer setup is misconfigured, or just sucks...or he's imagining things. What an asshole! :roll: You out of hand dismiss anything and anyone who's claims counter your experience and ...

I think we all agree 16/44 *should* be able to reproduce everything just fine under ideal conditions. But who's to say the reproduction chain is always ideal? And who's to say it's all about dynamic range? For me, it was about dynamic range. Honestly, I think Grant is full of it. Nevertheless, with...

First, I did not say they won't sound different. I said the PCM transfers I did sound fine. I also said Grant can't know how different the SACD really sounds compared to his transfer (using his usual half-assed 'I take 1/2 from science and 1/2 from belief' method) I can hear definate differences wi...

So I really can't say how different they sound. And neither can Grant, I bet. I did hear a difference, but it was small. Let me put it this way: On the SACD layer of "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" from "Greatest Hits", Sting's vocal sounds very recessed and somewhat distant. On the CD layer...

Re: SACD "needle drops"

Grant, could you tell me what equipment you used for the transfers? Nothing pro. I just hooked up the Sony SACD player to my E-MU card through the analog interconnects, recorded to Adobe Audition at 44.1, 32-bit float. What type of music did you record? The Police "Ghost In The Machine". And what c...
