Hmm... either I browsed that article too fast, or the reviewer didn't listen
to any lossless audio during his quality auditioning session.

$4,000 system and didn't listen to FLAC? No doubt he heard some artifacts
in MP3.

Thanks,
Phillip

I thought that was strange also. Especially when in his final summary
scorecard he gave a rating for PCM/WAV, but there was no corresponding
section in his review. I would have thought a critical part of the
review would be the comparison of FLAC/WAV to the CD player. That
would be a worthwhile comparison. I thought it was fairly silly to
compare the MP3 to the CD -- as he stated himself, that's really just
comparing the CODEC to the CD...
