Home Digital Drive

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

RE: Dac questions

"... I am looking for information on the best way to listen to our digital music seems like we never listen to CDs anymore .We use our IPads or I pods with a splitter in the back.I am pretty sure this is not the best way to do it, are we losing sound quality like this?"

I say yes..... I've never heard server or computer based playback that I thought was comparable to CD playback on a dedicated CD player..... The most frustrating part is that ripping CDs to computer seems to yield different sound quality using different drives, ripping software, playback software, etc. .... Not to mention a seeming worsening of sound quality after the hard drive is defragmented or a change in sound quality (sometimes better, sometimes worse) with updates to the operating system or playback software...... Once I came to the reality of all these variables, I've stuck to CD playback, and am not even thinking about other digital playback methods. (The only playback I enjoy on computer is YouTube.)
