FLAC / flac or mp3 or bad master?
Last post by airtas -
I purchased a FLAC album from Tidal.  The album is a digital album only.
The artist added two b sides which I had prior as an mp3.
AuCDtect said the source of the two files was mp3.

It seems the cut off is around 16 khz but the spectrum also goes into 22.

Are we thinking this still isn't a flac because the cut off occured at 16?  Why is some of the music hitting 22?

Flac 1 and 2 files are the ones in question.  Flac 3 seems to have more detail and is labeled as CDDA as the source in AuCdtect.

I have also shown the mp3s I had prior.  The "Flac" seems better but maybe not?

you know, there are enough trolls on the Internet making nonsensical claims, that making a thread about each of them would quickly turn a forum into a spam fest.

because the music player gets stopped when the wired earphones is disconnected and doesn't resume when the wired earphones are re connected again
there are players who can change this behavior, so if that's the only reason to say goodbye to corded headphones it's a waste of money.

earphone products which are affordable, durable, highest quality in sound
if these existed, nobody would ever buy any other.
I can recommend audiotechnica M50x, but I'm not sure if these count as affordable.

Does ear gets damaged by using these software's.
if it could then listening to certain "bad" kinds of music also could. if a software can modify the sound making it "harmful" somehow then this could as well be in the sound recording from the beginning.

General - (fb2k) / Artist search/jump within playlist,...Skins, skins, skins
Last post by Hriderxx1100 -
Newbie hoping I'm in the right place for this question. Have been using Br3tt skins for several years, most recently with an older version of Foobar and Br3tt's Slate skin. Within the active playlist, a simple SHIFT + letter or letter combination would jump to that entry. The ability to do that is great, especially with a large music collection. Now my dilemma,...I have just installed the most recent Foobar Stable Version 1.4 and installed Atarod's gorgeous Pandora Box EX 1.6 Skin, absolutely stunning on a big screen. Still finding my way around with the new configuration and trying to find how to jump/search within the active playlist. Hovering over the playlist and typing text will produce a small box displaying the typed text in white letters. Within a second or two the white text turns red and then disappears and the playlist stays where it is. I could query Atarod on Deviantart but not sure how often he checks in,...plus, I'm sure this is a walk in the park for some of you guys.......OK, I'm ready for a big head-slap "D'oh" moment!  More thoughts,...around a year ago I discovered the incredible combination of a Harmony Hub and the harmony smart phone app, (android for me). I don't know how remote controls can get any better than your smart phone. Initially I used bluetooth control of the PC but have recently switched to letting the Harmony IR control the PC which is WAY better. [1]

I heard somewhere that if we continuously listen to music brain cells get damaged but I have argued it's false but that person not agreed and so I have created this thread. Thanks for your clarification.

I have installed arise sound mod on my device to get rich experience while listening to music and it is working properly.

Arise sound mod includes Dolby atmos, Dolby digital plus, viper, dirac etc.,. Does ear gets damaged by using these software's.

One week back I brought xiomi Bluetooth audio receiver from this webpage
http://m.store.mi.com/in/item/3180600001

I have brought it because the music player gets stopped when the wired earphones is disconnected and doesn't resume when the wired earphones are re connected again.

Do you think listening to music through xiomi Bluetooth audio receiver is not safe.
