I know.  I was just adding more to it with little less sarcasm.  Wink

Building the wall is a waste of money, much like space exploration and national defense.
If you look at other areas the tax money is wasted, you will be floored at how many areas and how much $.  Those will make the wall budget look like pocket change.

That money could enable more Americans to sit home and watch tv and eat bon-bons.
And increase the obesity epidemic which will cost much more in medical spending.

That depends on who you ask to.  There are those who want to import voters for their party.  For them, blockage of such import is an issue.

In recently held Miss Universe contest, I've heard that Miss Spain is Mister Spain.

Part of the world has gone

So I am driving around listening to News radio and all I hear are reports of people in line to vote saying "I don't like the way the county is going" or "I'm voting for change", blah blah, blah.

Last I looked, the economy was doing pretty good, taxes are lower, we are finally doing something about China and pretty much anyone who wants a job can get one.

I though that was change...John   
They can be called Economic S&M.  They prefer pain and suffering over comfort and peace.  The others are misguided souls, AKA Sheeple (per Ed  Wink ) which can easily happen if they tune to major networks and press.

Which forum is it?

Ok, so this bozo on another forum for some reason decided to spread  a few lies about me.
Does his forum name rhyme with Lol by any chance?

Thanks for sharing your experiment.  Your result didn't surprise me because it's the same as what I've seen elsewhere.  But then the opposition would say something like "Not all guns are created equal...".

Happy 4th.

Maybe climbing the DAC ladder at Shiit will be the chit.  Grin
As far as DAC technology goes, the top of the ladder has been reached about 20 years ago.  There is no point reaching higher into inaudible region of sound reproduction performance.

Amir has an AP and tests a lot of equipment; I wish we had more of that.

Do you know who else has AP?  John Atkinson, the editor of Stereophile magazine, the advertisement outlet for high-end audio electronics.  Having such equipment isn't an issue but what they do with it is, especially Amir.  If you have read plenty of his blogs and online posts, you may have discovered a portion where he talks about the "problem" of jitter level being higher in cheaper DACs.  He goes on and on with some measurements and then he brings up a question, "yes, but... is it audible?"  Then he follows up with, "As unfair as it might be, I am going to punt that question."  If you (or anyone) can't smell a rat, you are bound to be tricked by shills like him.
13  General Category / Technical discussion / Re: Little Schiit Audio DAC on: March 20, 2018, 12:03:06 PM
So now he's a shill for a $75 (including shipping) dac.  I guess the mighty has fallen.  Come on sonic, it ain't all that.   Cheesy
That's how he lures in the new "catch".  Remember, he is a pro and has all kinds of baits.

Amir just tested your Topping D10 today and says you picked a good one:
I've read many of his white paper and forum posts.  He is a professional shill.  He's spent years on R & D of selling expensive audio electronics via deception.  You don't want to follow him or your audio mind will be contaminated with bunch of snake oil sales pitch.

Sorry, but I can't connect your dots.  Supposedly, these cheap dacs outperform the oldies.  Are you saying the Modi has outdated tehnology? 
Nowadays even cheap DACs (built-in disc players & receivers) provide as good of sound performance as our ears can detect.  Spending more for improvement that's even further beyond what our ears can detect is waste of money.

And besides, I'm into vinyl and don't want to buy another high dollar dac.  My oldie beats up on the new stuff.  It's non-oversampling and has tubes.  It can't be good.

I'm just dipping my toes into the dac pond to see what's out there that's new.  I'm not wealthy, but at these prices, it doesn't matter to me.  I could be lured into higher dollar dacs, but I don't want to take that leap without being intrigued.
If you want to improve the sound quality of your system, whether it's vinyl, digital or both, improve the room acoustics. That's where the real gain is.
