    Does anyone else have a well founded opinion on vinyl vs CD's? Can anyone recommend a quality record player?

    Well music at 22050 hz sounds terrible. 44100hz CD-quality audio sounds good, so analog has to sound way better since its infinite-samples.

    "SACD is a disc of identical physical dimensions to the compact disc but it uses a very different technology from CD and DVD-Audio to encode its audio data, a 1-bit delta-sigma modulation process known as Direct Stream Digital at the very high sampling rate of 2822.4 kHz."  
     
    Progress, I suppose.

    Another failed sony technology. When it comes to audiophiles all that matters is uncompressed 2.8ghz sampled audio lol

    Analog has an infinite sample rate and will never be beat by digital RE-PRODUCTION. Leaders in psycoacoustics believe even though the human ear only hears to about 20khz that the brain picks up on cues up to 50khz. Vinyl is the shit except that it wears with play and if you have a set-up like me that reaches 140db-in-room, then they skip too. You don't have to buy speakers the price of a house to have great sound, almost all recording studios uses some pair of Genelec speakers or another. Get a good set ($4000) and your listening to the music the way the artist heard it when they recorded it.

    I'm talking about the audiable hearing range as in frequency response and your talking about sample rates, and in the realm of sample rates 44khz isn't anything special. In fact the sample rate is halved when applying it into what your ears hear (stereo not mono) which is what I'm talking about.

    If he can hear a 44kHz tone, we should call The Enquirer. "Yes, hello? I think I found Bat Boy!"

    Well, they do make those high pitched buzzes to scare away teenagers in London. It's some high pitched noise only me and other young people can hear, supposedly. My idiotic coworker kept playing the noise again and again. I'm not sure how high the frequency is. Then there are EVPs.Superhero!

    There's an app on the iphone called sound grenade, it emits a loud, high pitched whine. People use it at work sometimes, it's annoying as hell.
