Listening Tests / Re: is it even possible to hear "Phase distortion"?
Last post by magicgoose -
Well it's clear that it would be hearable if max delay difference is as big as 100 ms, but I think they talked about "regular" equalizers, so the delay of certain bands will be less than 5 ms or something like that.
They claim they can hear "any" phase distortion, and this is not possible AFAIK, but I'm not 100% sure.

General Audio / Re: Bluetooth Audio AAC codec quesitons

Also, don't these modern devices all need mixers? If you can hear a sound like a notification while music is playing, it's likely not passing through.

Android has supported LDAC and aptX(HD) natively since Oreo, btw, though not the aptX low-latency version.

2.17:
* Ignore/skip releases which 404 when updating tags.
* Wait longer with each successive http 429.
* Fix a problem with arrays only getting depth 1 when they should have depth 2, causing certain tagging strings not to work as they should.
* Fix wrongly parsing single track mix releases which use "1.x" for every track position.
* Skip "(silence)" when parsing hidden tracks, but add the duration of silence to the track duration.
* Add the duration of hidden tracks to the track duration. This is returned by DISCOGS_DURATION_SECONDS and used in matching tracks to files by duration.

They say so over here:

Given the data provided by the above cited references we can conclude that phase distortion is indeed audible, though generally speaking, only very subtly so and only under certain specific test conditions and perception circumstances.
 
Impressive as the paper(?) looks like, I'm not sure about how qualified they are to draw that conclusion.

Validated News / Forums email restored, hopefully for now

I had to reset something with SELinux that was preventing the forums from invoking the sendmail process, which randomly popped up on a software upgrade. I officially hate SELinux even more than when I had to set up the exemptions just to get the forum script working in the first place.

If this happens again, I am outright disabling SELinux. Piece of crap.
