All in one PC and iMac just like TV

Image
A Swedish magazine with a 70-year tradition in the field of image and sound recently tested the new iMac with a 24-inch screen. You can reread it: Noticeably higher performance on most things with the M3. Handy format, bright screen with high resolution. Dolby Atmos sound. More memory and extra storage is expensive. Still Lightning connector on keyboard and mouse. When Apple launched the 24-inch version of the iMac with an all-new processor in 2020, it was the biggest upgrade to any iMac in years. The new M1 processor crushed the Intel processors in our tests, suddenly the little iMac was a powerhouse. It is worth noting at the outset that the processor rating applies to Apple's own solutions. These did not have to be attractive solutions in the wide range of offers with Intel processors. The Swedish review often mentions working with sound, but these are general statements that should satisfy Apple fans who plan to invest in new equipment. However, there is a clear indication of

Poetry meetings are held on the first floor of the Old Town Hall in Gdańsk and it is more difficult for disabled people to get there. People living in Stockholm also have difficulties due to the long distance. Therefore, broadcasts have been launched and are available on Facebook. There is only audio that can be played even with a smartphone, and it is worth using headphones. It's even better to use a PC. This will allow you to play Facebook broadcasts with the free Pale Moon browser , in which a music player with WASPI support will be set to support the podcast. It is also worth supplementing Windows with the AAF driver for HD Audio and the LAV Filters decoder package. This solution worked well in tests with streams from Deezer, Spotify and Tidal . The worst option is an all-in-one PC, which is like a TV but with Windows. The 27-inch Hewlett-Packard was tested.  The DAC in it (ALC3274) supports a maximum of 24bit/48kHz, but the software ensures oversampling with 32bit/48kH

All Scandinavian capitals have a store where people listening to music from a PC can buy an interesting electro-acoustic transducer. They even have there handmade American headphones. Audeze LCD-MX4 features patented Double Fluxor™ Magnetic Array to achieve a flux density of 1.5 Tesla, the most powerful magnetic circuit ever in a headphone. Uniforce™ voice coil deliver precise detail and accurate bass response. Such an advanced design obviously requires a good amplifier to optimally drive them. Headphones are the most commonly used, so there is a lot to choose from. You can fully use these possibilities if the optimal driver for the sound processor is also installed on your PC. There are also inexpensive active desktop speakers with a power of 60 W and they benefit greatly from the appropriate setting setting in the PC of their placement parameters. This can often be set manually in the driver for the most popular audio processors on desktop motherboards. Laptops don't have this

Ambiophony was once called an analog solution for quadraphonic playback of music from stereo recordings. Wikipedia says: Derived (2–2–4) formats are simple and inexpensive electronic solutions that add or extract rear "ambience" or "reverberation" sound channels from stereo records i.e., studio reverb, audience applause, etc . There is also: Adiophonics is a public domain method that uses digital signal processing (DSP) and two speakers directly in front of the listener to improve stereo sound reproduction and 5.1 surround sound for music, movies and games in home theaters, gaming computers, workstations or studio monitoring applications . A good place to present this topic using various devices may once have been Stockholm's most popular department store, On the top floor there was a stand with electronics and TV equipment, where a lot of people always came in November and December, because that's when there is the greatest interest in new solutions for lis
