So many of are re-inventing the wheel with the digitizing of our collections, purchasing downloads, rippin' SACD's, trying to figure out if you hook the DAC to the player that already has a DAC before or after you buy some totally unfamiliar program to check your DR before dBpoweramping it into a FLAC with an mp3 in it. or an AAC with a .cda on top of it with little green rosettas made out of lossy or lossless LAME rips. Any chance we could separate out the myriad, "How do you-" threads from the "What do I buy-" threads, because the tecchier the hobby is getting, the less it's about audio hardware, and the more it's about studio software. Who knows, if more newb's saw a forum section titled "How to get started doing stuff you don't know how to do", they might not all be peppering the experts here with the same questions worded different ways. This not about avoiding Beatles or rap or non-rock threads...and it has nothing to do with Hardware discussion. It's about the ergonomics; to help people just coming here, find answers before they get lost in "which DAC will solve all the problems you don't know you have yet" discussions. QQ for instance, has a couple of areas in this vein, and I think it works quite well. I'm coming across suggestions here every day for a program or an app or a procedure I need to consider "before I get started and have to start all over again"..and I don't even know what I need 'em for! Serious consideration?
