Man, you're really creeping me out here.
After I wrote that line, I was thinking of adding "I'll give you a moment to look it up" in parentheses at the end of the sentence. I decided not to thinking it was perhaps a bit too condescending.
I kid you not.
|You're being much too dogged. It's not hard to realize that the gross majority of Head-Fi members hears differences with different amps.
I made that comment in the context of your invoking statistics and it being a "scientific discipline" and the decidedly un-scientific "statistics" that you offer up.
|The overwhelming majority.
But that's rather like saying the overwhelming majority of people who attend church believe in God.
|True. But you may recall how we got to this side track.
|So you don't want to reveal which electronics components you have experience with and you're currently using? (No signature, no gear listed in your details...).
It wasn't relevant to the question you had actually asked regarding my skepticism.
But if you desire an answer outside of that context, suffice to say that I've been involved in the high end home audio industry in one way or another for going on 30 years.
My first commercial product was a unity gain "preamp" that I'd designed around 1987 and introduced in 1989 under the Alpha Logic name. It was the basis for Corey Greenberg's Aunt Corey's Homemade Buffered Passive Preamp DIY article for Stereophile (I provided Corey with the schematics, part sources, etc. and while Corey never mentioned this in the article, he made me Elvis so I figure that was a fair trade
Over the years I've had experience with dozens of not hundreds of different electronic components and I do and have done consulting and contract work for a number of other high end audio companies.
Oh yeah, and I had a VERY short career as a writer for Gordon Holt's short-lived Video Theater magazine.
I'm currently in the cable business, but plan to introduce some electronics either late this year or early next year.
I have no gear listed in my details because it's mostly all custom so it'd be rather pointless, though I don't really see much point in listing my gear even if it wasn't custom as I don't see that it would provide any truly useful information to anyone about me.
So there you have it.
