You ain't nothing but a hound cat.
HUH??? It's dog..
Well I heard him say cat..
No you didn't..
Yes I did, I like cats and I heard him say cat..
Elvis said dog, we all know that, the song is called Hound Dog.
Right, you've got a digital recording of the song, it might be on a CD, or on your PC, or on a USB stick, etc etc. Whatever it's on is irrelevent, everytime you play the recording you hear Elvis say dog, not cat.
If it's streamed, you hear dog, if it's played on a CDP, you hear dog, you hear dog no matter what it's played back on.
Dog, dog dog dog dog dog, doggy, woof woof.
You can't hear cat because he doesn't say cat, and within that digital data are exact instructions that instruct that dog is what's heard.
If you use a different digital cable, you still hear dog, if you use a streamer that cost £317m and was jointly designed by Russ Andrews and NASA, you still hear dog.
If you live for 4 billion years and playback that recording 100 times a day, you'll still hear dog, you won't ever hear cat, never ever ever ever ever.
So why would you hear less bass? Why would you hear more bass? Why would you hear tighter bass? Why would you hear anything different?
You can't, it is not possible, in the digital domain, nothing ever changes, dog is dog and cat is cat, and that's that
To say you've heard anything different on that recording on the same system, is to say you heard Elvis sing hound cat.
It really is, there can never be differences in the digital domain, it works 100% and you hear what's on the recording every single time.
You can change speakers and hear more bass, or change DACS and perhaps hear less bass, you can change your listening position and hear something different, but all other things being equal, changing a digital cable or means of digital transport will make no difference whatsoever.
Unless you can hear the king say hound cat
