How do I convince people that audio cables DO NOT make a difference - Page 55

post #811 of 822

It is not about pretty cables. All about what compliments the gear you have. You do need to do a little homework to learn what will compliment your rig.

Like I said. Show me the evidence.

I am not here to sell you anything. What is your point? Just a realist. I know what sounds good on my rig. Don't need an approval from a scientist to say so. Not afraid to spend money on my rig when i need to.

I know. But I do have to give my opinion here. I don't want newbies thinking everything is said here is true, because it isn't.

To me, is like homeopathic medicine: lots of mystery, paucity of objectivity.

Understand your point gilancy. My point is if you give your honest opinion good or bad, it is still good opinion. With the gear you audition or use, it is a good opinion. To me every post is an opinion. Take it or leave it. Yes I do agree with some and disagree. It is all good.

BigPoppa, you are a good guy, even if we disagree.

An opinion can be misleading though, and if that is the case, then is bad.

I guess what bothers me here sometimes is the lack of critical thinking. I take it all with a grain of salt. A healthy dose of skepticism is always good to have around.

Always question, always look for data. Empirical evidence is what it is, unproven.

And since when a fanatic is somebody with an inquisitive mind?

Don't criticize the scientific method, criticize the lack of evidence. I would easily change my mind if you show me the beef. Where is the beef?

I agree that a bit of skepticism is needed. But isn't it like that with everything?

post #819 of 822

yup.

BTW, fanaticism is an irrational belief. Evidence based thinking is not irrational. Even Churchill would agree with that. DYT?

To me this is just a hobby, Nothing really serious. Have wife and child. She lets me organize meets and listen to music every night. Can't complain.

fa·nat·ic

  [fuh-nat-ik] dictionary_questionbutton_default.gif Show IPA

1. enthusiast, zealot, bigot, hothead, militant. Fanatic, zealot,militant, devotee refer to persons showing more than ordinary support for, adherence to, or interest in a cause, point of view, or activity. Fanatic and zealot both suggest excessive or overweening devotion to a cause or belief. Fanatic further implies unbalanced or obsessive behavior: a wild-eyed fanatic. Zealot, only slightly less unfavorable in implication than fanatic, implies single-minded partisanship: a tireless zealot for tax reform. Militant stresses vigorous, aggressive support for or opposition to a plan or ideal and suggests a combative stance. Devotee is a milder term than any of the foregoing, suggesting enthusiasm but not to the exclusion of other interests or possible points of view: a jazz devotee. 
 
*`Evidence based thinking is not irrational`- but your behaviour on this thread is growing irrational.
btw I will not be returning nor replying to this thread in future.
