An interesting exchange.
The cost of inbreeding is particularly fascinating.
There's a cost to the benefit of social eugenics, cultivating semiotic genius that enhances parasitism.

Nature is self-correcting.
Anything man does to intervene upon natural processes seems to have collateral effects that then require further interventions.
The correct, or efficient method is man relative to nature.
Any other relationship has an unforeseeable cost.

They touch upon the subject when they comment on Freud's psychoanalysis and how he was only good at constructing sentences that made sense but referred to nothing outside the sentences.
This is the Talmudic teaching.
Words referring to words that construct nonsensical sentences if applied in the real world.
This is the method of marketing.
The Gordian Knot, as I called it.

With that said, I'd like to make a few comments. I am a self-confessed audiophile, and I believe in hi-res audio, completely. Much of what you said does force me to re-evaluate things a little, and I can certainly see where you are coming from regarding the audiophile vs audiofool borderline. However, my experience has been that I can hear a huge difference between redbook audio and hi-res. When I listen to DSD/SACD, the experience is awesome, and does provide a sense of "liveness" that I do not get with redbook.

The reason your DSD/SASC sound better is because the studio did a better job in making it sound good. Not because of the medium. (And if you get a SACD where the "same recording" is included on CD in the box, they have intentionally made the CD worse for marketing reasons). There have been plenty of tests where that high-res signal is downsized to 16bit 44kHz and nobody can hear the difference in a double blind test.
The reason you do not hear that difference in pop music is because nobody it's garbage on 16 bit and 24 bit.

"[high khz] can distort what you can hear"
Is this an exponential effect? Because obviously then: what prevents a 48khz from distorting lower frequency ones?

isn't there an argument that the distortions are a part of the audio reproducing itself better? If not, why not?

And about the argument that DACs already oversample: wouldn't that be incorrect since you cannot translate up but only down without a not-true-to-form result?

the argument that it recreates the waveform instead of straight dot-to-dot lines is a decent argument

Mostly went into the video to learn basics of the 'audiophile' stuff, so my questions could be irrelevant

Good questions.

I haven't looked into digital to analog conversion but obviously the DAC tries to create a wave from the information present in the digital file and all the frequencies present in the file have to be incorporated into this produced electrical wave.

So for example if the DAC would only have to deal with frequencies between 1 and 100 Hz because the audio was only recorded in that range and the audio file only contains data in that range, I think that the DAC would have an easier time to reproduce this wave between 1 and 100 Hz as accurately as possible because it would be a much simpler less jagged wave form.

If the audio equipment records sounds at a high frequency, let's say 90 kHz, well outside of what man can hear, then this information and wave information is present in the audio file. When the audio file is converted for listening with the DAC then this information will be tried to be implemented in the created wave and since there are always small errors and inaccuracies, the information in that high frequency range would also affect and change how the wave sounds at lower frequencies, (though hopefully not much if the DAC is good).
But I agree with the idea that it will certainly not improve the accuracy of the low frequency elements in the wave, at best it will not affect it if the DAC is perfect, in reality it will probably have a small negative effect on the accuracy of the wave reproduction in the audible ranges.

The DAC does not follow dots and does not connect them with straight lines. If it would then the Nyquist theorem would not apply. The Nyquist theorem applies and works because of how DACs work which are producing something like superpositions of sine waves.

That being said, perhaps most listeners find it tiresome to have this near perfect sine wave superposition with almost no noise. I suspect it doesn't do well for relaxed listening which is particularly apparent in a very controlled environment, like audiophile headphones.
Then it's time to buy an expensive tube amp or tube dac to add some warmth/noise to the music again because otherwise it's all too piercingly crystal clear.

I've heard some other recoding industry engineer make the claim that he doesn't get as tired from listening to Hi-res audio. Maybe there is something to that in combination with the observation some have made that without "harmonic distortions" the music is quite exhausting to listen to.

If it's true that higher sampling rates induce some distortions at the audible frequency range then Hi-res audio is actually making the music less clear and that would add to a more pleasing listening experience.

But, if the goal of high fidelity is to produce the music as accurately as possible, as if you were in the room with the musician, is that Hi-res audio really helping with that or is it producing artificial "harmonious distortions" which were not present in the recording room but which are created through the DAC due to the higher end frequencies which distort the audible ones through the "imperfect processing" in the DAC ?

In other words, Hi-res audio is doing in a conventional DAC something similar as does a tube Amp/DAC, adding some "harmonic distortions".

Sounds good.
Also talks about the fascination with the phallus within the first 15 minutes.
Similar to what Satyr talked about, man and fathering children, patriarchy fascinations.

Back a bit...



The last attempt as a actual American President was the Catholic JF Kennedy.
The 'holy' alliance got rid of him when he began asserting his presidential power.

Read Heisman's Suicide Note, and Michael Jones...in a book about rebelliousness and the type of spirit that produces it.
This 'unholy alliance' goes back centuries - forged in resentment and the desire for vengeance this produced.
It was expressed as hatred for life and for existence, expressed as a desire to expunge, to erase, a shameful, degrading past.
Catholicism was targeted, still holding Hellenic roots, but it currently fully indoctrinated.  
Roots it has corrupted, obviously, presenting itself as the continuation of the Roman Empire: Holy roman empire, in the west, and, what was to be called Byzantium, in the east.
It's a revolution against the world, against nature, and natural order.

I've diagnosed it as nihilism....with two forms;
Pure, honest, direct, Nihilism...& duplicitous, flattering, friendly, hopeful, lying, 'positive' Nihilism.
The 'ignoble lie'.  
It's one thing to lie to the mediocre, to women and children, to the fragile...but to call yourself a philosopher and indulge in these leis with your peers is disrespectful and disgusting.
To use the lie to corrupt your pwn people, is a sign of r/selected beta-male disloyalty - treacherous turning against your own blood because you cannot live-up to their highest ideals.

There's a reason they assassinated the first and last Catholic president.
Seek and ye shall find.
Go to Truman, Roosevelt....Churchill before he was 'indoctrinated'.
Why did they turn on Stalin after he assassinated Trotsky and rid Russia of a specific 'infestation'?
The very ones who brought communism, Marxism, to power, turned against it when they were purged.
Why did they turn against Putin, after Yeltsin had sold Russia's huge natural resources to the Oligarchs?
Remember how 'friendly' Yeltsin and Clinton were? He was selling out Russia, that's why.
Seek who controls the propaganda mechanisms...Hollywood, media, nutrition... pornography, music....
Why, after Catholicism had resisted the corruption of America, the church remains silent now.

Think about how they are using Negroes as front-men for their 'revolution', which begins with the corruption of European culture, through the corruption of their women and children.  
Watch the messages they sell through cRap, and fArt...which icons and pop-cultural idols are promoted.
The subtle, and not to subtle, propaganda in each and every movie, and song - how it is all being dumbed-down.
Watch how even the US, the most powerful nation in the history of mankind, is selling itself as a 'victim' of envy; how they never speak about who were the enslavers the Europeans purchased their 'slaves' from.  
Muslims bought slaves by the millions, but they were brutal - they castrated their male slaves. Not the Europeans in America.
Was there a slave trade before and after Europeans stopped buying slaves, and made it illegal to own them?

The Abrahamic god is not 'dead'. He has been baptized - renamed.
They call him one, mind, consciousness, whole, spirit, soul, being, absolute, truth.....symbolize him using multiple avatars....the most popular being 1.
He reveals himself in language, disconnected from the physical, corporeal, the experienced world.  
He exists in abstraction, vagueness, obscurity, linguistic jargon, word-juggling, occult mystification - he exists as word...through semiotics.

He is mind controlling lesser minds, by convincing them mind is not theirs - they are mindless automatons, or that mind, their own, is omnipotent; that the mind is a world creator...a private reality manufacturing organ.
It depends on the psychology of the sheeple they want to manipulate.

If they are more feminine you sell them on the absolute penis in the outside they will submit to....if they are more masculine you sell them on the absolute vagina, to fertilize, the womb to build their world within....build on the narcissistic delusion that they are gods, creating their own reality.

I think those psychics have been too confident in their abilities.
Self-deception, in the client and the psychic/conman, is the major force which makes it all possible.

Basically, according to those double blind studies, at large, people without hearing loss prefer flat frequency response in their speakers across different cultures.
But it's not just about the flat frequency response that the speakers produce "on-axis", directly straight ahead. There is also the sound that is emitted at different angles from the speaker front which are not the same as on axis and which through reflections on the walls of the room add to listening experience.

Also shows how seeing the speaker influences the rating greatly.
Not just in the obvious way as in "I like me those KEF speakers because KEF is good" but also in ways like how speaker placement in the room matters in a double blind test, as in, it changes the actual quality of the sound but when you do it while people see the speaker they give it a more similar rating each time they see the same speaker because of wanting to be consistent with your own judgements - "I gave the speaker a 7 last time, I'm gonna rate it a 7 again even if it was moved closer to the corner of the room, that stuff doesn't matter that much."
