Lplex ~ Create Lossless Audio DVDs

Lplex is a console application meant to provide a free, quick, and hopefully painless way to:

  • Create lossless “audio-only” dvd-video discs from wav or flac audio files, featuring:
    1. gapless playback.
    2. md5 verification of audio data.
    3. archival (dvd-rom) content.
  • Losslessly extract unencrypted lpcm audio streams from dvd-video to wav or flac format.

You’re already fully equipped for hi-res audio (up to 24-bit/96khz) if you have a typical dvd-player and digital amp, and lplex is a way to take advantage of this.

Volumio ~ Audiophile Headless Player

Volumio is an headless audiophile music player, designed to play music with the highest possible fidelity. Volumio runs on most embedded devices (Raspberry Pi, UDOO, Odroid, Cubieboard, Beaglebone, Pine64, Allo Sparky…) and on any ordinary PC (x86).

Volumio is a free and open source Linux distribution, designed and fine-tuned exclusively for music playback. It runs on a variety of devices, typically small and inexpensive computers like the Raspberry PI, but also on low power PCs, notebooks or thin clients.

This is made possible by Volumio’s User Interface: a web applications that runs on any device with a browser, and that allows for an easy and intuitive control of your playback sessions. All communications between the web app and Volumio will happen through your home network.

bs2b ~ Bauer Stereophonic-To-Binaural Headphone DSP

A typical stereo records are being made to listen by speakers. That is a sound engineer makes the stereo mix to the adaptation of sound for listening of one channel by both ears. Therefore, you will be tired during a long time headphone listening more by a super-stereo effect than by a poor design of headphones. What’s missing in headphones is the sound going from each channel to the opposite ear, arriving a short time later for the extra distance traveled, and with a bit of high frequency roll-off for the shadowing effect of the head. And the time delay to the far ear is somewhat longer at low frequencies than at high frequencies. The Bauer stereophonic-to-binaural DSP (bs2b) is designed to improve headphone listening of stereo audio records…
