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...

einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
