Example text

The speed of sound is a function of temperature, yet sound causes a temperature variation. One might expect some effects because of this. Fortunately, sounds which are below the threshold of pain have such a small pressure variation compared with atmospheric pressure that the effect is negligible and air can be assumed to be linear. However, on any occasion where the pressures are higher, this is not a valid assumption. 3 At high level, sound distorts itself by increasing the speed of propagation on positive half-cycles.

Clearly the more failures which have to be handled, the more redundancy is needed. If a four-engined airliner is designed to fly normally with one engine failed, three of the engines have enough power to reach cruise speed, and the fourth one is redundant. The amount of redundancy is equal to the amount of failure which can be handled. In the case of the failure of two engines, the plane can still fly, but it must slow down; this is graceful degradation. Clearly the chances of a two-engine failure on the same flight are remote.

In the absence of timebase correction, the sound quality of an outboard convertor can be affected by such factors as the type of data cable used and the power supply noise of the digital source. Clearly if the sound of a given DAC is affected by cable or source, it is simply not well engineered and should be rejected. Almost by definition a good remote DAC rejects noise and jitter on the digital inputs and its sound is not affected by the digital source or the analog characteristics of the cable.
