How about a dozen!!!!
Maybe add a couple of Regen's too.
There is an obsession amongst some PC based users about the word galvanic above other aspects of signal transfer and coupling. Perhaps this is due to the poor signal quality from many computers.
Some of the techniques and hardware used can actually increase jitter and distortion, and there is no other practice that is better than careful connection of system components and avoidance of ground loops and current.
Against this, there is almost no recognition here of 44.1 and 48k related clock multiples on SQ in usb and aes audio transmissions.
Heck, we even have long discussions of RPi quality based on lower quality dac chips, clocks and transmission hardware, against well put together high quality audio devices. This is even from inmates who have repeatedly claimed that they have 'optimised' their complex systems for audio replay.
Yes buzz words abound in audio.
I think the industry can actually do a lot better but are dancing around addressing the real problem so that they can sell peripherals. Why make a better mouse trap when I can sell you all sorts of mouse bate, voodoo magic dust, super alloy springs and replacement wood bases.
Can't blame them I guess, the first priority of business is to make money. Apply P.T. Barnum's rule..."There's a sucker born every minute". And we have a full fledged Audiophile Industry!
