    Do most people finally realised that digital music sound bad?

    Look at this chart, does this chart provide proof that starting year 1999 many people finally realised that digital music sound bad and stop spending on digital music? Even with the increase of digital download and streaming, the total revenue is still going downhill !

    Why a high end cassette tape deck sound better than CD?

    High end cassette able to reproduce 20 to 20kHz by using Metal tape, actually most people are unable to listen to sound frequency higher than 17kHz. So even a normal tape with frequency response of 20 to 16 kHz is enough to reproduce good quality sound.

    Although cassette tape deck produce higher distortion (about 1%) but people will not be able to differentiate sound with 1% distortion with the original sound with 0% distortion. Just like tube amp produce higher distortion compared to solid-state amp. Most people agree that tube amp sound better.

    Don't take the example of cassette walkman, it's wow and flutter figure is very bad, not worth to listen to cassette walkman at all.

    Do you believe that specifications determine sound quality ? ?

    Favorite Answer:

    Specifications ALONE don't determine sound quality, 

    but a Combination of specifications And circuit design Does.   

                                            

    Equal measurements Theoretically Should, but in the 

    Real World do not, guarantee equal performance.  

                                           

    I don't believe cables make a Significant difference,  

    but that doesn't mean they make No difference.     

                                

    The point is --- don't let your imagination spend your money for you.

    WHY DOES DIGITAL MUSIC SOUND SO CHITTY?

    Favorite Answer:

    Well in most cases vinyl is better BUT that will depend on the quality of the recording, how it was mastered, the quality of the turntable, phono cartridge, phono preamplifier, and how well it is calibrated.  And of course the audio system in general.  So yes vinyl is in most cases a significantly better sounding format if all things are done well.  

    Digital can vary greatly too both in the recording, digital recording bit rate and sample rate, as well as the playback equipment and system as a whole.  

    Most digital should sound pretty good though, your either listening to MP3’s and or on a bad sounding player.  

    But yes overall “in most cases” vinyl will sound significantly better.

    Those who poo poo vinyl and claim digital is better simply have never heard good analog playback and spew specification numbers to tell you, see the numbers tell you its better.  As if higher dynamic range numbers tell you its going to give you superior sound.

    Much more to better sound then some numbers. Those are the same people who think and buy speakers and equipment by specifications.  That is simply because they don't trust their own ears.

    How many tracks can a blank cd hold?

    Favorite Answer:

    CD's come in different sizes. There are two other limitations, what the playing device will hold and what the write device can write.

    For audio a cd is said to have an average capacity of 700 MB's of capacity. Which can be used as a clue. The file size should be able to be seen in the directory. This is about 80 minutes of audio.

    For what it is worth, there might be an adapter cable that will let you use your cell phone as the play back device. If they are in the right format an mp3 or mp4 player can be purchased that would allow the use of the flash drive files for play back. That might prove cheaper then transferring the files to CD. Like this one from Walmart:

    What causes common scratches on dvd's and cd's?  I don't mistreat my media but can't figure out why they are getting scratched.  Ideas?

    Favorite Answer:

    Small scratches shouldn't interfere with playback...It could be that you are getting sand or some other debris inside the flip folder...How do you store it ? Check  out  the insides of the folder with a flashlight and magnifying glass and then clean it...Take all the CD's out and wipe the insides with a  damp microfiber cloth, also try canned air for the cracks and corners you cannot get to...Disks can be polished and cleaned to work better...You can use product that is used to polish out headlight lens on automobiles, or product that's for both lenses and auto paint... but be prudent and careful. Watch videos on the process..Test your skills on a CD that can be replaced or one that is not that desirable. Once you have the process down and your skills have improved you can move on to more desirable disks...

    Are there any small mp3 players that sound as good as an ipod?

    I bought an mp3 player a while back (a small one with a clip designed for walking) and was surprised to find that the sound quality of the music wasn't anywhere near as good as an ipod. I thought that all mp3 players worked the same and that as long as you have a good pair of earphones, the music will sound exactly the same. Anyway, the only ipods that I can see on the website are the ipod tough and those are too big for listening to music while I'm at the gym. I want something small that I can just clip to my pants and play on shuffle. Do you have any good recommendations? Thank you!

    What do I do with this mp3 player? ?

    I bought an mp4 player at a local tech shop that I frequent, I don't like it. I've had it for three days, tested it out, it's great, but the format is not good for me. It plays primarily albums, but doesn't have a music list. If you want to play individual songs outside of a album, as in singles, you have to put it on random. I got it for $25, since I'm a frequent and good customer there, and it was a suggestion that that would be a possible alternative than trying to fix one that had a lot of technical issues that kept it from running right. Originally, it was $35, but I got a discount.  

    I don't want to return it, and disappoint the shop owner, but if I don't like it because of the format, what do I do with it?

    Is it best to collect vinyl or cd's?

    Favorite Answer:

    Stick to CD, "vinyl" is a temporary fad. Quality wise, it is nowhere as good as CD.

    I lived through the original vinyl era (and remember 78s before), still have a very high end turntable and a lot of original albums and singles - but they are not worth playing as the quality is nothing like as good as CD.

    [Unless you consider surface hiss & scratches "realistic".. If you want them for the novelty and experience, fair enough - but do not get them as being in any way "better".]
