FAQ: Can I use the ADC1 and DAC1 to make a "Vinyl vs. CD" listening test?

Listening tests are very difficult to administer. Small errors in the setup can lead to erroneous results.

Vinyl places many restrictions on the mix and mastering engineers. High-frequency content must be limited due to the mechanical limitations of cutters and playback cartridges. Low-frequency energy must also be limited for similar reasons. Stereo content must be limited and stereo separation of the system is also limited. Vinyl cannot be aggressively mastered for increased loudness, the way CDs can.
