When will people notice there is a "music" forum on head-fi? - Page 3

post #31 of 52
Anyone else here own hundreds of CDs, cassettes and vinyl, have loved music for years but get talked down to and have your favourites insulted?

Honestly, I pretty much steer clear of that forum now, as back in the day when I brought up music, it and I would be the brunt of jokes and derision. Completely contrary to the feel of head-fi, so now I rarely venture into the depths. It's honestly alot more fun not to. At least last.fm and pandora help me with music and don't insult my tastes.

It's been months since I've been in there. Since I don't download music, it seems to take a lot of convincing before I'll buy anything new... I barely have enough time to listen to the music that I do own.

Yeah, I've seen that as a problem too Red. But, I think it's a small minority of posters who feel the need to "Tell you what's what!".

I have been collecting music for more than 25 years and have such broad tastes. And, while I would like to think that I know a little about the genres that I'm interested in, I have still learned a ton by hanging out in that forum.

That's why I still spend a lot of time in there. Having said that, I have also voiced my displeasure at the types of posts that you describe, to do what I can to try and curb such useless behaviour.

I post there and will likely do most of my future posting in that sub forum.I buy allot of cd's and started with vinyl recently,even though I have no record player,as of yet.I love my music,and I am expecting allot of put downs or just generally being ignored,because of my fave genre's... I take
it its against the rules to crap on others taste in music on that forum ?

If so great ! Because on other forums,I get allot of flack publicly or through pm's about what I listen to. But you'll never see me post negative remarks about member # 29,285 deep love for Polka,or Rock or Japanese Pop....etc...

We are all here because we have something in common ! A hopefuly deep love for music

I enjoy the music section especially for its great classical music information and LFF's pick of the week. I hope it will get even better as time goes by. Nothing better than audiophiles who are also musicphiles

Ever since I made the decision to only spend $20 a month on music, I've been posting in the music sub forum a lot less. When I check in though there is never anything actually going on. You'd think the music section on a forum dedicated to audio gear would be burning hot every day.

As soon as there are samples! I find I can't buy based on recomendations from there although it has been interesting. It's not that the recomendations are flawed or poor I just can't judge whether I'll like it based on those impressions...

That's why i always have links to the artist myspace page. They usually have samples there. I never understood why people don't provide some sample of the music. Throwing out a list of names really isn't helpful at all.

Another thing that irks me is when people just throw out an artist name and don't give a good introduction album to start off with. Some of these artist have many albums that have huge differences. Some albums are better than others to start off with. People need to take these things into consideration when making recommendations.

Back in the good old days (erm, a decade ago) I used to be very experimental with buying CDs. I'd buy based off of hearing one song. I was young. I got burned so many times with craptastic one-hit wonder albums that I quickly learned my lesson. Rockpile seemed to help, but not enough.

I find the music section pretty helpful. Amazon is also pretty helpful. I won't buy anything without reading about it and downloading it first. Not ever.

All these gear posts remind me of one of my favorite series of quotes from "The Breakfast Club":

no music and good gear is like having good condoms with no penis. It's not fun anymore.

I've looked through it numerous times but never caame away with anything really useful. I'm interested in only two things, will I like it and is it a decent recording. I can only get an answer to one of those, and that's not even the really important one.

Talking about music is like talking about food. A list of ingredients and preparation/cooking methods but still no idea if it'll taste any good to me. I'd rather listen to samples or radio to get a taste of variety. A five second clip will tell me more than any 500 post thread ever can.
