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

RE: Effect of age on hearing Dac's differances.

In the world of Audio people who are older will likely have more experiences and therefore assume their hearing is better than those who do not.

I think that with time and experience people can train their senses to be more acute so that they can pick up on nuances in sound. However literally a younger person's ear will probably take in more data [able to physically hear more].

So maybe it all boils down to perception.
A younger person hears more but perceives less.
A older person who has trained themselves to pick up on audible differences in sound may actually hear less but perceive more than the young person.

With age, reflexes are supposed to decrease as well, but an older race car driver will likely have better reflexes than a younger untrained person.
