Can i post iphones? Coz all iphones lag 2-3 years in terms of innovations from the rest of the market

You sure can.
And with their elimination of the headphone jack, Apple plunged themselves not 2-3 years behind in innovations, but all the way to pre-1950's.

>>65564318
6.5mm jack is still standard for musicians and producers.

I'm actually impressed with Apple being ballsy enough to take risks like that, even if I don't like the resulting products. You've got to hand it to them for at least having vision for what they'd like their products to be rather than blindly following market trends.
It's a shame that USB-C has turned out to be a piece of fragmented shit standards-wise, otherwise their MacBook ports move would have been fantastic.

No one is forcing you to buy this shit. If you want to go legacy for whatever reason then do that, just don't be a faggot about it when others choose to move on.

>>65564906
If they were truly ballsy they would have dropped the lightning connector on the iphone X and went 100% USB-C i/o on every laptop and smartphone they make. I hope they do it next generation, but realistically it's going to be another generation after that. Like it or not that's what's really going to push usb-c into every product and finally kill micro-usb.
>>
>>65565330
You know what the cool shit is? Simple, cheap and just work. USB-C or any fucking proprietary port as analog audio output is nothing but add more complexity, more cost with no benefit.

This. 1/4" TS, TRS and RCA are still really fucking common. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

But it is being replaced by quartz analog/digital watch. People may pretend that stuff like rolex or patek are still around, they are nothing more than enthusiasts' plaything and all the practical timekeeping have since moved on

Kinda similar to homebrew 8 bit computing and vinyl recording.
>>
>>65565992
>Saying this to a guy with a penchant for lossless audio
Fucking /g/, I swear...

On my desk right now is a USB DAC.
It then connects to my monitor pair via balanced 1/4" to XLR.
If I were to swap in some unbalanced cables, such as the 3.5mm cables found in wired headphones, there would be a significant and noticeable increase in noise.

Dude you really need to understand the difference between lossy and lossless formats and transmission media. It's the difference between 64kb MP3 and FLAC.

So you're going to listen to your MP3s and FLACs without a DAC. Sounds good man. Let me know how that goes.
>>
>>65568951
>>65569366
I don't know which one of you started to act retarded, but both of you know what's about: audio is only heard analogue, but sometimes it's stored digitally (CD or files) and needs a DAC, and sometime its stored analogously and only needs an amp or a tuner (vinyl, tape).
Digital storage is only lossy during ADC capture, mastering, lossy transcoding and stay still over the time, while analog storage usually loose quality over time and multiple reads.
>>
>>65569366
My MP3s and FLACs are stored on spinning platters that are accessed via read/write head on the end of an actuator arm, an analog process that is perfectly analogous to vinyl. Checkmate digitalfag.

Running signal cables alongside multiple power cables in a confined space is enough to cause issues.

>>65569471
Wrong.
All digital signals are transmitted as analogue signals, but a funny little thing called "being fucking digital" means that they can recovered as with zero data loss.

>>65571077
Hence the balanced cables to minimise transmission loss. Are you retarded or what?

The use of analogue literally cannot be removed from the equation due to the nature of sound propagation, but it sure as hell can minimised to ensure that there is as small a difference as possible between the source data and the audio you hear.
>>
>>65571519
Still use USB for analog signal is worse than TRS/TRRS. Not argue about the sound quality though.

He's right and it's not even an audiophile thing, it's just a standard in the audio world. In concert you only see balanced connection from the mic/instruments to the consoles, and instruments who can't output balanced use pic related.
I'm in a band and far from being audiophile.
>>
>>65564633

Basically. My recording headphones either had 1/4" or had the exact same screw-type adapter (i.e. My old pair of Sony MDR-7504's I recorded with in the 90's). My current Audio Technica ATH-M40fs have 1/4".
>>
>>65573179
In those environments balanced cables make sense, for home audio setups they are useless snake oil.

Audiophools go as far as using balanced cables for fucking headphones, where it could potentially do more harm than good.

>>
>>65573179
I believe balanced cables are only used in pro-audio stuff because there are often long cable runs between mics and amplifiers or mixing boards and the amp and speaker or other audio equipment. These are long enough that common mode noise can be pick up in unbalanced cables. In a home environment you don't typically have cable runs longer than a few feet which doesn't really present a noise pickup issue not to mention there aren't many high power noise sources in a home environment anyway, at least none that would pollute the audio spectrum aside from 50/60Hz mains pickup which can be easily dealt with with a notch filter if it's even a problem at all.

I managed to kill monitor buzz with replacing unbalanced with balanced. Dunno if it was the cable or getting rid of rca-trs-converter, but there was an audible difference depending on the position of cables. They were ten yuros apice so i wouldnt call that a steal.
>>
>>65573255
Same here, I am a sound engineer and all of my headphones have this screw-type adapter.
And needless to say, most of my cables are 1/4, the only ones that aren’t are XLR cables
>>
>>65565593
>cables that only transmit x or y
umm there's micro usb cables that do that, so it's not a new concept.
>>
>>65573179
Balanced lines tend to make more sense with longer runs and with active devices.
It's one thing for someone to connect a mixer to an amplifier with a balanced connection. It's another for plug a headphone in. Differential signaling doesn't net you much of anything here, and no ground loop forms at this stage.
>>
>>65565593
its just missing the data wires, that way its cheaper to produce.
>>
>>65565479
But you have to convert to analog at some point. USB C and the no audio jack meme just moved that point from phone to headphones.
