MQA Bob tells us digital as we know it is blurred and smeared until you add aliasing, remove the lower bits and wrap it in DRM.
Others trust only in DSD when it has to be digital.
What a mess

Stop right there.
I will answer your question exactly as asked in the title. What do I think about the debates? They are pantomime shows, in which Oh yes it is! and Oh no it isn't are repeated ad infinitum just as they were in the same show the previous year. I've taken part, to some extent, on both sides over the years. Now it's boring.
Sorry, but you did ask. Literally.

Well, I found a solution... I recompiled LAME with a minor change.
I wrote a blog post about the problem and solution here: https://geeklikemetoo.blogspot.com/2017/08/a-workaround-for-mp3-tagging-problem.html
When LAME writes an ID3v2 comment tag, it seems to set the language to either some unicode string, or if the command-line switch --id3v2-latin1 is used, to "XXX." There doesn't seem to be an option to set it to something else. In either case, iTunes will not import this field.
New version with better support for higher bitrates.
This time the binary package contains changelog and help.txt
Please test and report:

There are times when I believe I can perceive a warmth in analog that I don't in digital
Inherent to analog is imperfection.
This might yield distortions we can detect and perceive as "warmer"
A nice article by Hugh Robjohns: https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/analogue-warmth
Hooray! It was fixed!

Or Audible Dynamic Range Sound Test @ audiocheck.net: full scale pink noise interleaved with ever quieter voice saying current loudness.
Or the version without noise (scroll one page down and play "16-bit • The Original" sample).
objectively it performs better with higher impedance loads (see the bottom of the page: http://reference-audio-analyzer.pro/en/report/amp/asus-stx.php ) but even at its worst it performs very well and is beyond transparency. i've used it for about a year with the hifiman 400i and didn't notice any problems.
This should work as well
$if($stricmp($left(%path%,1),F),Laptop Music,External Music)|as in
$if($stricmp($left(%path%,1),F),Laptop Music,External Music)|%<artist>%|%album%|[[%discnumber%.]%tracknumber%. ][%track artist% - ]%title%See screenshot.
Replace the 'F' with the relevant drive letter on the laptop
External comes before Laptop (Xternal doesn't)
You can't get rid of the 'All Music' label
You can't get rid of the item counter
You may also want to experiment with the $directory(path,n) function

Hi, first time posting here!
Please be nice to me
I know that this card can drive high ohms dynamic headphones really well, but what about low ohms planars?
Can it drive, say, Mr Speaker's AEON (15 ohms planar, as measured by Tyll from Innerfidelity), just as well?
I'm looking to buy this headphones as it gets loud enough from my HTC10 without needing an amp, so no need for bulky accessories. I will also use it at home with the Xonar, of course.
I don't really know much about this kind of stuff, as I just buy any headphones that I like and can get loud enough without obvious artifacts, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much!
