Weddell Seals Underwater Sounds

These Weddell Seals create a wild and bizarre range of sounds! I think some of it has to do with the ice, because if you search for videos of people throwing stones on frozen lakes you can hear one of the tones when the rock strikes the ice.

Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds (2012)

Compilation of various ideas on mysticism and science.

Bandcamp.com and Bleep.com

This is just a brief post showing my appreciation and support for HQ music and musical freedom. Two of my favorite music stores: bandcamp and Bleep. I’ve been buying music from these site almost since they first started. It’s a great way to buy music directly from the artist and in my favorite digital music format – FLAC!

TEAC UD-501, Sennheiser HD 650, Audiophile Linux

UPDATE (2016-Feb-01):
Upgraded from HD 650 to HD 800. Now in audiophile heaven. Also, added SOtM internal USB port with SOtM SATA In-Line power filter.
I recently switched my computer’s audio system from the Objective2 Amplifier and ObjectiveDAC (a good low-cost set-up) to the TEAC USB AUDIO DAC UD-501. I connected the TEAC to a spare laptop running Audiophile Linux. Listening with Sennheiser’s HD 650 headphones, the system playing native DSD albums sounds remarkable. All instruments and vocals are crystal clear and superbly smooth. It’s the way music was meant to be heard.
DSD is the future of music — beautiful high quality audio. With a well produced DSD album, it sounds as if you are at the recording studio with the artist. Granted that a typical DSD album can be around 2-4 GB, it is rather disappointing that people seem to prefer poor quality MP3 recordings playing on low quality DAC chips in iPods and cell phones. NOTE: If you want a portable option, see the Geek Wave. An MP3 album is less than half the cost of a DSD album, but it is also less than half the quality IMO. I don’t think many people are aware of how amazing DSD quality music played back with professional quality electronics can sound. Since we live in a time where hard drives in the 2-4 TB range are rather cheap, I hope that consumers begin to demand that music producers focus on providing high fidelity music.

YouTube Channel and Playlist – bloublouxp

It has been a number of months since I last posted an entry on music. Well, I think the following playlist will definitely be worth the wait. Some of the best songs I have heard in a long time. Thank you bloublouxp for this list.
