first entry: measuring times for streaming audio

Posted 06-16-2010 at 06:41 AM by caieng

My next post will address the question of the best distro out there, for OLD computers. By old, I mean PIII, with half a gigabyte of RAM, i.e. motherboard/cpu 8-15 years of age.

My test machines, three in quantity, all employ the same testing algorithm, designed to address this question:

Which distro is best suited, among OLD computers, for playing streaming audio, in any one of three different, non-proprietary formats:

mp3
aaCPlus
OGG

Why test streaming audio?

Old, slow, outdated, obsolete machines are still very suitable for playing streaming audio.

Streaming video is another matter, but capturing streaming audio on these older machines is effortless.

More importantly, by double blind testing, switching a Yamaha Receiver, between a 3 GHz Core 2duo, with 4 Gigabytes of dual channel DDR-2 RAM, and any one of the three test machines with the PIII, I cannot HEAR any difference.

Here is the web site I access for the tests:
