Am I wrong about the articles? Admittedly, it's been decades since I studied Hebrew.
Translated to English, you wrote: "Goat is on my father's pencil", which is meaningless, at least it's meaningless in Hebrew.

Clearly, you did indeed guess wrong. You owe John an apology.

Is this that serious?
And you mean that this limitation happens in the digital domain?
I have read many loose remarks here and there that DACs distort close to DFS

At twice the cost of an AD1955, how good can an AK5394A be ?

(in a world of $1 DAC trouble, sounds like the economic final stage of yet another technology. OS or NOS, MC or MM/MI)
