    Right. And it had nothing to do with FLAC vs WAV, according to you.
    And so do trolls. Youve just found your way to our board.

    Ive read enough of your posts to make my own opinion of you. First, I think you have more money than intelligence. Second, I think you are delusional. You ignore science, and even per your own website, you say you tune your crystals "fine-tuned by ear to 0.01 gram accuracy". WTF does that even mean? You know youre not the first to come up with crystal theories, right? Youre nothing more than a snake oil peddler. You dont even understand the basics of audio. Meaning, the sound will only be as good as your weakest link. You take a $50,000 power cable and plug in a $800 laptop? Who the [heck] does that?

    Look man. Im trying to be understanding and sympathetic, as many others have tried doing before on many other forums. But until you realize the flaws in your arguments, and until you can prove your theories with science and benchmarks, youre a hack. Plain and simple. Do I believe in your setup there are differences in your "Judge" power cable and two Genisises chained together? I believe YOU hear a difference. But that doesnt make it real.

    To quote one of the posts you just linked me:
    and
    Please go away man. Seriously.

    Thank you AudioTruth. I will not go with the AVI ADM9RS then. I'll likely to stick with either the CMS50 (it fills up my room better) or the 40.

    Ha ha you said it so well about the skeptics and is all so true. This is why I put your quote in my signature. I just love it. :D

    Cheez is in love with AudioTruth. :wub:

    I see that you created an account just to troll my thread. I do not appreciate this. If you created a new account, I would suggest you browse the forum more and make valuable contributions to the community first for a few months. Get a recommendation letter from the moderators and administrator from anandtech forum. You can then post here. This thread is a high-level, although it's a bit funny. The first post of yours contained immediate personal attacks including profanity words. Please refrain from using such foul language.

    It did. In my first post in that thread I said "I think the problem is that FLAC takes 2-3% CPU power while WAV takes 0%."
    I didn't have it confirmed yet.

    Then I made an update and confirmed it. The computer generated more noise with FLAC playback, and this noise went back to the AC outlet, and infected the DAC and amp plugged into that same AC outlet. I was using Toslink to galvanically isolate the computer and DAC, but it didn't help.
    Later I discovered that the best sound came when using multiple extension strips for the computer, and plug it to a different AC outlet far away from the audio system. When I did this, I was able to increase the power consumption of computer without it being as damaging to the sound. But it only worked with optical Toslink between computer and DAC.

    Why am I not surprised that you have raptors in your HTPC, let alone 5 of them? For all your expensive cables and other mumbo jumbo, you have huge glaring issues with your whole setup that would cost very little remedy and could have a measurable effect on your sound...

    If people just stopped posting in his threads the troll would go away.

    Now, lets see if my reply finally ends this thread.

    I don't have enough money to buy new clothes, I have worn the same jacket for 20 years, it has holes in it that I repaired. I rather save up the money and spend it on audio.

    The one who hasn't tried something has the biggest chance of being delusional. There are thousands of audiophiles who can hear a difference in cables, and you want to boost your ego by pretending you are smarter than them.

    What you call science is something that is incomplete, and that makes it flawed. You need to know all variables at the same time, how everything interacts with each other. It's the same thing with jitter, even though the data is the same, the right data at the wrong time makes it wrong. Everything in audio are usually bit-perfect, but still sounds different because of a different timing. There are an infinite number of colorations in audio, and it's all because of the timing of data which makes up the final analog waveform that the ears hear.
    It means that the crystal formula was fine-tuned by ear, and a difference in crystal weight of 0.01 gram was audible. When tweaking with quartz crystals, it's very sensitive.

    Because the $50,000 power cable gave me better overall performance for a lower price.

    It works both ways, you need to prove yourself that cables don't make a difference. But it won't work with the standard one dimensional tools, you need a multi-dimensional tool that can measure everything at the same moment of time. This tool doesn't exist yet.
