Re: Unplayable audio files

ENCO Systems uses mpeg2 files but with the .WAV extension notable for it being all caps. I have two methods to play these if that's what they are. One is to use Open Audio from Video in Adobe Audition 1.5 under the File dropdown. (Later versions may have a different method.) 2nd method is to convert...

WINamp?

Re: INTERNATIONAL CRYSTAL MFG

Gotta wonder if one is connected to the other. They would be losing a very large customer. I should know this since I am just across Big Muddy from them but does anyone know if Petersen is still operating in Council Bluffs? Last time I was in their neighborhood it didn't look like there was any goin...

Re: Barix levels

Apt-x is the gold standard. Thanks for reminding us. I did not know about it being redundant streams which is really the way to do this. There are other products out that can swap out bad packets from one stream with concurrent good ones from another of up to 4 redundant streams all on near real time.

Re: Translators

Re: Quiet UPS

Looking forward to your report. To tell the whole truth, we have had the swollen battery issue* and the Chinese revenge sharp edges on the BOTTOM of the battery tray where they can do the most damage to your fingers and any surface you set them on. *As noted above, the batteries should have already ...

Re: Audio Chain > AES or Analog?

I think the main gain is better signal-to-noise ratio but that is limited by receivers and receiving conditions anyway, so I agree with Mike on this one. Funds probably better spent elsewhere.

Re: Quiet UPS

We operate 13 APC SmartUPS 1500s and none of them make a peep. Only noise I've ever heard is a quiet clunk when they test themselves once a week. 5 of them are in studios.
