Cool...
But I see an opportunity to improve them, almost sonar, they need to fit a


On Nat Geo recently there was an interesting program on Dolphin Intelligence, not as high as originally thought as a lot of their brain mass consists of cells to keep the brain warm. Great program, just like a thread on here, one set against the other. The Dolphin huggers were aghast at the new research.
Myself I have always campaigned for 'Tuna friendly Dolphin' which causes some controversy when I interact with the hardcore save the animals types. But my view is shouldn't we treat all critter the same.

Why treat them all the same? Some taste better than others.

Default Name Calling...

Scientists have found further evidence that dolphins call each other by "name".
Research has revealed that the marine mammals use a unique whistle to identify each other.

BBC News - Dolphins 'call each other by name'

I like the tweeters that go up to 170Khz. That should satisfy many of the bat-ear forum members. No worries with your 196K sampling rate files.

Wow, you guys are harsh. I post some info about a cool speaker that goes way up into the dolphin hearing range, and all you can talk about is eating dolphins.

No interest in the technology, then?

The speakers are cool, but at 52 years old I don't think I need that much treble extension

Thanks for sharing this is a cool item. Interesting how "flat" it is 70K on!

I wonder if the scientists stressed over which connector materials, cable sheathing, solid, Litz, silver, copper, debates we would have here. Maybe the dolphins can tell us what's best?

Yes, but only if they do a DBT...
Obviously silver cables will really make them sparkle.

On an earlier note, does anyone know what Dolphin tastes like
