Should Sound Quality of Computer Audio be improved

Unable to respond to, "Mach2Music and Amarra: Huge Disappointment"- Thread. Other Members take free pop-shots!
Apparently some have more Freedom Of Speech than others! I
don't know how many times I have said it, I want Computer
Audio to succeed! It will only succeed if Computers are designed from the ground up to reproduce Music (Same minimum standard applied for Equipment of ALL Audio Formats)! This is common sense Audio Engineering Design. Bandaid Modifications cannot be substituted for absence in design to produce Music! Design it right to EARN the right to become a New Audio Format- same as all other Audio Formats! No Freebee's, No Cutting Corners! Lack of design is what's causing such varied results in S.Q. between
listeners of Computer Audio. I see about 50% negative
responses here on these Threads. It will continue to happen unless you fix it! Blaming me won't help! I am an
Engineer, and I can read results! 50/50 success/ failure
rate- you have an inherit Engineering Design Flaw for the
reproduction of Music via Computers! Shock! Suprise- since
they were never designed for Music! So when is someone finally going to properly design the Equipment/Computer
(From the ground up) for Computer Audio? Do we continue
to treat any real criticism as "HERESY" in the lack of
design in Computer Audio for Music? You tell me what I am
allowed to talk about, and we will both know!

you belong to an era that has passed. For better or for worse its all changed. I would say in most ways for the better. Just image listening to a cassette again.

DSD & DXD files now starting to be released as downloads on a few specialist sites. All you have to do is search. Now the word "search" may fill you with dread, but luckily that playback machine called a computer probably has something called google. So you type & it searches.
Guys, been there, done that for the last year (8 pages). You simply cannot claim "Soon All New Music Will Only Be Available As Music Downloads" when NOT everything is available as Music Download, AND 10,000 CD Selections are currently NOT AVAILABLE. You want me to list all 10,000-nuts! I don't know ALL 10,000, I just know that I can no longer check them out because they are "NO LONGER IN PRINT",
and "NOT AVAILABLE AS DOWNLOAD". There are way more CD Selection missing than is currently being provided as Selection in Download. I don't want to name/ have you find
one, or two selections (Download or CD). I want access to those 10,000 EITHER as a CD or a MUSIC DOWNLOAD Period!!!
I don't care about one particular selection, I want to select from the 10,000. The particular Title is irrelevant
when I want 10,000 in Music Title Archive back on the Market. I complain, because you are perfectly satisfied in permanently leaving those 10,000 OFF of the market. There are no plans on making those missing 10,000 available as a Music Download. The current number of available Downloads tell you all that you need to know. You are worried about one single Title while I am saying good-by to a whole Archive of Music. If you intend on going "Soon All New Music
Will Only Be Available As Music Download" then do it right by making ALL Music Currently missing as CD available as a Music Download. The numbers scream Gap! Void!- And YOU KNOW IT!!! FILL THE VOID as required when implementing a New Audio Format, or your New Audio Format is simply NO GOOD! It is the apathy cemented in concrete that is dead set in growing that void way larger than it currently is. Nobody here even demands better performance in Music Selection for Music Downloads. You will be waiting 20 years from now still waiting for it to happen, and I won't have anything left available on CD. We just do WITHOUT any Audio Format then??? There is NO PLAN for rapid increase in Music Selection in Music Downloads. It is just like HDTV, still waiting after 10 years for larger increase in HD Selection.
Rocks grow older faster. Oh, but everyone promised us a Holy
Grail in Selection. This time we hold these promises to the fire, and say "Show Us First"! You say "Shut your trap", and we still say "Show Us First"- because we both know you still don't have anything to show for it. You won't have anything to show for it in the near future. I desperately need you to have something to show for it- my Music depends on it! You are the one fighting this tooth, and nail! I am into listening to Music. If I was into pulling Teeth I would have been a Dentist. We are not Dentists, we are supposed to be Music Listeners. Sorry, I don't find the sight of blood very Musical. You must be frustrated that more Music Download Selection can't be produced any faster
( And Anyone Who Complains About It Is The Enemy That Needs To Be Silenced ). Silence will end up being the ONLY Music left to listen to, unless you "CHANGE" the direction of the trend NOW!!! I cannot change the Trend by myself when EVERYONE is perfectly satisfied with the current Trend, and I cannot convince anyone otherwise. I guess we ALL build
"BOMB SHELTERS" of Musical Archive to survive the DROUGHT
( NUTS!- THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANTED ). What the hell- who needs Music anyways, right?
PO, are you are record collector? If so then revel in the joy
of looking for rare music. If not shut up. You and uour 10,000 records that have been deleated. Like its something new! Records have their time.

Would you say the same about cars? They stopped making the model T ford and every showroom I go into only has new cars. Why did they stop making the model T? I really want one.
Model T argument wearing thin, and completely irrelevant to purchasing Music by your favorite Artist. Actually I don't listen to Records ( Can't afford a half dozen high End Audio Formats- not in this economy ). Last that I checked Records are making a comeback as 180 gram Re-issues. If you want to talk about cars why is it that the American Public is VERY interested in the quality of their Cars, but no one is interested in Sound Quality. What if half of the available cars were no longer available on the Market; because, the American Public had decided that they were no longer interested in the quality of their cars. Think there wouldn't be a big stink about the depreciation of car quality/selection? Heaven forbid anyone should ever complain about the same thing happening to anything else we purchase. This is simply a highly profitable shell game of hiding our Musical Archive from us. Why are we falling head over heels over it??? When Manufacturers play a shell game with Music Selection in the middle of an Audio Format Turnover- you know something stinks even if no one will admit it! Playing the sucker to this shell game advantages us how??? Two words come to mind- "FLY PAPER". Sticking with it only shows weakness. Absence of the demand for better Sound Quality ( And/Or better Music Selection ) can only show weakness. Firewalling ourselves in cement from ever changing from a position of that weakness benefits us how? Give me the 10,000 in CD, or give it to me in Music Downloads ( Hell, you can even decide ). Why are we even letting someone else decide on neither without so much as a whimper? "Soon All New Music Will Only Be Available As Music Downloads"- this holds who accountable in making sure that Music Selection will be available EVEN in support of Computer Audio? It appears that no one is responsible for insuring that Selection will be available in Downloads as other options are rapidly evaporating. "Soon All New Music.....", only gives cover to those using lack of Selection to boost their Profits. We, end up getting the short end of the stick in this process. Those Profits are not born in a vacuum, but can only come at our expense. This will most assuredly continue unless we hold Computer Audio Downloads feet to the fire. It is the only way to insure of Computer Audio's success ( And finally shut me the hell up on the issue of Selection Availability ). It is time for Computer Audio to either Stand up, or Shut up and get the hell out of the way of another Audio Format that WILL make our Musical Archive available. It is do, or die for Computer Audio N-O-W as it should be for ANY competing Audio Format. If not, then what is the point in competing? Who wins Computer Audio, or LP Re-issues? Here we are a dozen Responses later, all of them obviously avoiding answering the question. Is it so hard to answer that question? WHY??? Someone had better answer it, because the future of our Music depends on it! A New Music Selection Audio Format that purposely tries to minimize Music Selection Availability! $$$ I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E $$$
the only thing wearing thin is you. Maybe like the 10,000 CDs you go on about you & this thread will disappear too.

You really are nuts. Your argument is stubbornly misguided. Just like your sunspot argument.

You are completely alone in your opinion. Don't you find that strange? I know you have not considered that you have got it wrong. You don't seem the type.

Good luck.
