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

RE: Super Important Question That Has Parallels Today

Are you sure? This is very much like saying we should all use Spectral electronics in our system. Please don't misunderstand - I would *far* rather have Spectral electronics than a Sony receiver. But is Spectral "better" than Audio Research, Conrad-Johnson, Vaccum-State Electronics, Aexthetix, VTL, Convergent Audio Technology, or Ayre? Even if you say "Yes!", will that still hold true five years from now? Ten years from now? Twenty years from now? These are some of the issues that come along with proprietary closed formats.

As always, strictly my personal opinions and not necessarily those of my employer or pool boy.
