Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Is there any real reason a DAChas not been madewith a 0.5 volt out instead of 2 or 3 volts out.???

I listen to classical music from Czech Radio over the Internet. This comes at 48000/16, FLAC encoded. Quality is good, there is no compression. The only problem that I have with this service is the occasional drop out which is probably related to how clocking and buffering is done. (This is a touchy issue due to the huge amount of buffering required to deal with network latency.) This usually happens no more than once every few hours.

The music is broadcast at a relatively low level, so there is never any problem with distortion. Unfortunately, they broadcast the announcements im Czech at a volume roughly equivalent to fortissimo in the music. Unfortunately, the excessive volume doesn't make up for my lack of linguistic expertise, but the web site usually provides the needed information.
