Mine (PSS + WSHMP)
They still achieve 75 dB at 0,1 mV, though, so shouldn't matter much. They got waaay to expensive, so doesn't matter anyway.
Note the impedance of those EK5 is 300 ohm, so I guess that's how they can market them as safe for kids. Not sure this would suit the OP's use case.
Opus / Re: Opus 1.3-beta is here
Last post by king2101 -
I want to convert my ~2k files with AC3 5.1 and AC3 2.0, should I wait for opus 1.3? What settings do you guys recommend to opus 5.1 and opus 2.0 to achieve transparency ? File size isn't really a issue here, I just want to have a library fully open source

t To me 128 Kbps opus is Transparent for 5.1 tracks and 64 Kbps is transparent for 2.0 tracks

I'm very satisfied by the plugin and use it for months now.My media renderer is a Denon DRA 100 and it works perfectly

Is there a way to have the stream title to display dynamic information like %title% or %artist% or both ?

In the panel of parameters, only a static value seems to be valid

Thanks in advance for your help.

Great plugin


Any possibility to have and answer to this question or an evolution made to the component ?

Thanks in advance


Any chance to have the dynamic title format to be implemented ?

I would very like it

Thanks in advance

Best regards

on_key_down returns standard ascii character codes. So values 65-90 correspond to A-Z (you need to check if VK_SHIFT is down for upper/lower though). If you want to output the key pressed to the screen you can do something like:
Code: [Select]
var str = String.fromCharCode(65);    // str now contains 'A'

Yes, the A-Z character codes, as well as the blank space and 0-9 characters, are the same as the key code, but all other symbols are messed up and I believe they change with the keyboard settings.

We were on the wrong track! The on_char(code) callback is the one to look at: it takes the character code which is actually mapped to the key, rather than the key code.
Vinyl / Re: 33 vs 45rpm -- Technical Differences

With 45's you have to get off the couch more often.  That's good for your health.  Following that line of reasoning, digital is bad for your health, LOL.

But then I guess the 7" vs 12" format discussion was not a part of your question?

I understand there are differences in distortion between the inner and outer rings -- presumably this would influence any comparison of 7" and 12" records, above and beyond any differences in their playback speeds.

As you allude, there are a great many other factors which influence sound quality such as DMM and tape sources. I'm curious about whether, all other things being equal, there is any meaningful positive effect on sound quality of a higher playback speed. In particular, I'm not certain whether the IPS/magnetic tape comparison is justified given some of the additional sources of noise raised by Arnold (reply #12).

In short... Does a clear technical case exist for using 45rpm over 33rpm, and has this been demonstrated in any research?
Yes. Don't be fooled by the "for kids".

Google a bit about them, I was very surprised.

If you can read Tyll's measurements, it can be seen that they follow Harman's curve relatively well and behave well too.
Which is really odd.

For kids - apparently they have some protection built in them so that kids can't, not knowingly, damage their hearing. That's a good thing. I have no idea if that means they are too quiet in a normal adult usage case, sorry.

Edit: WHAAAAT? 50 pounds???? I could swear I've seen them at the 20 pound price point recently O.O

Sorry :(

Last reply was 6 years ago so I'm not sure anyone will help but - <FIRST PLAYED> will get rewritten sometimes for tracks that already have it. So a track with a real <FIRST PLAYED> date (2015-06-04) could get rewritten with today's date if I listen to it today. I have no idea what causes this and would love some insight.
