2007/2/26, Florin Andrei :

You have amps and speakers doing 120dB? Show them to me.

Most time when I try to reach that dynamic range (with my home stereo
or with a professional) PA I get several problems:
- Neighbors banging on the door because of the loud passages in the music.
- Listeners complaining about not hearing anything in a silent
passage after 2 minutes of 100dB.
- To small mainlines to get the current for powering 120dB(A).
- To small budget to be anywhere near 120dB dynamic range.

> Come to think of it, it's probably easier to just make it 24bit (3x8)

While 24bit or higher is nice for processing, the only reason I see
for more bits on the consumer-side is to have a higher SN-ratio. But
most consumer electronic is worse than noise of 16bit dac...


Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
