Ok, so seeing as being a musician doesn't seem to be enough for you I'll give you a little more of my background in audio. I've been involved in high-end audio for almost 30 years, I've worked at a few high-end audio shops and I worked for a high-end speaker manufacturer as well. I also went to college for audio engineering so I think I've got a bit of experience in audio reproduction as well. That said, I still maintain that my personal baseline is real life, after all that's the objective with high-end audio, to recreate the real world experience.
mate, no disagreement LoL.... i just meant that we all have different perceptions and tastes and there are no golden ears except for our own ears to tell us what is good
i do not doubt your background or your knowledge or hearing, mate, that would be too sick
