The Quality of Quality
This article about Lou Reed's complaints regarding MP3 sounds quality reminded me of one of the first posts I wrote for this site, about the whole issue of voice quality and sound quality.Since I posted that item, we've run a lot of posts from John Bartlett of NetForecast about QOS, and these have generally been among the best-read posts on No Jitter. So clearly a lot of you share old Lou's concern about sound quality. The question is whether Lou, and you and I, are all just dinosaurs.
Part of my not-so-hidden agenda here is to get you to dig back into our early days here on No Jitter; we did a very "soft" launch back in December, but when I went back to look for the "VOIP for Audiophiles" post, I really felt like we had some great stuff there. It was a dilemma; I wanted (needed) great stuff right off the bat, yet we knew we were going to ease into this thing to give us a chance to let the kinks (as opposed to the Kinks) get worked out. So if you've got a minute, check out our December 2007 posts.
Cuddly, work-safe Lou Reed:
The Kinks sing about Fred Knight:
