Back in the 70s, when I became fascinated with high-end audio, there was a list of terms rarely heard today: tape hiss, surface noise, VTA, azimuth, cantilever, and rumble.
To the uninitiated, those terms would today probably sound more like techno-babble than sense.
They’ve now been replaced by a lexicon of new techno-babble: sample rate, bit depth, Ethernet, jitter, timing, and I2S.
With each new change in technology, we get to learn a new set of insider words.
I wonder what the next decade will bring.
