This Qobuz ad is almost entirely bullsh*t – Proper Discord

I saw this Qobuz ad on Facebook this morning. It has some issues.

Qobuz ad

Yep. This is the type of misleading advertising that we’re used to seeing about audio file quality. Read the article to see why.

  1. This is just another piece of evidence that we need to begin the education of the general web audience — as evidenced by so many “shared” memes and articles on Facebook. People are very gullible online. They fall prey for things online they would NEVER believe in the real world. Why is that? They will believe and/or share anything they see if it’s produced well enough. Online advertising has become almost as bad as malware — in fact it IS malware for the mind. People just don’t know the difference between reality and click-bait.

  3. The problem is that most users have a poor technical background. They cannot judge the truth or falsehood of “facts” on their own, and have to blindly accept what self-appointed experts (such as myself) say.

    I recently saw a claim that the output of a DAC can have a peak level higher than that of the analog signal originally sampled. I knew intuitively this was baloney, but it took me — a degreed EE — two or three minutes to figure out why. Hint: the person who wrote this simply doesn’t understand the sampling theorem — specifically, that sampling is a linear function, and that a sine wave requires at least three samples (not two) to fully specify its frequency, amplitude, and phase..
