Subjectivisim is not a commercial invention its a result of the biological reproductive human species over 100000s of years of gradually learning what were good and bad sounds.
From the cry of a baby to the baying of a wolf..Being "scientific" I am sure you believe in human evolution.
would it be "good" if we were all "robot like"without the ability to be able to write poetry/compose beautiful songs
sense when somebody is walking behind us without hearing or seeing them and to sense when we are being watched.
All human subjective senses built into man over a long time part of our DNA.
I am sorry you will never convince me against the human being having a -I am sure a word you hate -spirituality.
If all we are is a blob chemicals compressed together that lives and dies and "that's it" -oblivion.

Yes I know PB-whose line is that of-The Book of Life or the " Unblameable" power amp circuit by D.Self
If you like me have read many issues of EW/WW then you will know that any young EE coming up with [what I thought] as an innovative original design
was "torn apart" by him every inch of the circuit was criticised in relation to his "Imperial" Designs.
It went on for so long that the EE who Taught him[ I wont name him] came on in the letters pages of EW/WW to Apologise-quote-"for letting him loose on the community.
Don't get me wrong D.Self is a brilliant ADE -no doubt about it.
But even though many of those unusual circuit designs sounded very good they were put down -on purely Technical grounds
Which -in my eyes -is not right.
Have you counted the number of Subjective posts on Head-Fi in relation to others?
Human beings cant communicate their feelings without being subjective.
And every piece of Hi-FI that is bought by the Public is bought subjectively-
I listened to it in the HI-Fi shop/I heard it in my friends house/ It was Recommended to me by another poster as having a "great"/"good"/"excellent" sound.
Johns ears weren't just "golden" they were "platinum"
