Yes, I do see where you're going. But what part of "speculation game" did you not understand? No one denies that Jude's opinions and impressions are subjective, as are all of ours. But what fun is a public forum if everyone takes an empirical approach and patiently and seriously twiddle our thumbs, wordlessly, like good little boys, until the product comes out? People like to imagine how one product would sound with another, especially audiophiles, and a part of what makes this community so fun and engaging and strong is that we get to bounce our ideas off each other's. And when the product comes out, we test our hypotheses in actual life. It's big part of the fun. No harm in that.
