A flat bench is just not compatible with my weak back, so I use an office chair, no arms, at max height, with kitchen chair cushion, and one layer of carpet pad to get to a good height. So, when I sit I deliberately place myself hard to the back of

Got 100% the first time. However, unfortunately, the wording is poor, unfocused, with cumbersome needless differential equations and weird nomenclature. Here is how Bill Bremmer explains it: "Sound the A-440 pitch source, a tuning fork or aud

If paranoid, why not use your OPTICAL output from your PC? I do that, running it into a high end standalone DAC (a Yulong DA8). Works great. Did so also with a much less substantial DAC. I also use ASIO4all.
