That is definitely true.

I get hung-up on the issue that players have playback issues at all. "Is it the burn speed? The type of CD-R? A combination of both?"

When I send burned audio discs to others and get a report of problem with playback I'm thinking more of how I could do something different.

I have suggested to people with playback issues to try another player or use their computer. For me, the questions remain. I've tried 4x as well. At one point I thought certain players would not like burned CD-R's over "pressed" ones... right until those same finicky players did recognize burned CD-R's instead of giving a tray load error.

Opus / Re: opusgain scanner implementation status

Switching from Vorbis to Opus because of one audible artefact seems excessive. You have no guarantee that Opus will not have an audible artefact at some point in some track. In fact I can almost guarantee it, given that there are known killer audio samples that Opus really struggles with. However, if you just want smaller files at an overall similar (or better) quality, then Opus would give you that.
I agree that one single issue isn't an excuse to move to another codec.

Though in fact (and it's not matter of a point of view) Opus is not simply overall better than Vorbis/any other lossy coder at 96 kbps (and OP talks about this bitrate) but also  handles better difficult samples.  http://listening-test.coresv.net/s/scores_by_tracks_closeup_en.png
Look at scores (and amount of difficult samples ) where Opus and Vorbis struggle on difficult samples.
Also it's worth to mention that  the test  was very extensive  with 40 samples.

All righty, I'll take this as a bad idea.

A mod can bin this if they want.

Have a look at IEMs (In Ear Monitor) like Etymotic ER4P
You don’t have any pressure on your ears.
Having them inserted can be another type of discomfort :)

Beside pressure, weight can be a burden too.
One of the reasons I like the Sennheiser HD800 is because of its wearing comfort.
Light pressure, light weight, over the ear, good cushions.

Have a look at battery powered Bluetooth receivers. They turn any headphone into a wireless one.

No. Then people would have to be referred back to the "we've been here before" thread.

Thank you for your reply.

I just released faac 1.29.5 with a few real changes.
Encoding is definitely much faster and quality may also be better with many samples, definitely worth trying.
Congratulations!
The encoding speed improvement was confirmed on my Ryzen 5 1600X. The real output bitrate was strange when the input was a short stereo white noise file. It was not so on other files.

I think the 60 days i suggested was way too short , i think a year of inactivity would be better.

If there was new pertinent information a new discussion thread would be better wouldn't it?

The component supports custom fonts/sizes for tooltips but each script would need updating.

Thanks, I'll give this a try!

Is it DPI aware? That may be the issue they're experiencing.

Yes, this is what I was asking about, actually. If there's no support for this, then I'm happy to use the directions that marc2003 suggested.
