Oh crap, chum in the watereek.gif

 

The thing is, he's right.  There is nothing inherently good (or bad) with gear that measures well.  But at the end of the day, we're the ones (and not the measuring rig) that have to listen to the gear.  As longbowbbs and my friend obobskivich says, if it sounds good, it is good.

You're not getting it there Warrenpeace! Everytime the O word gets mentioned they school like starving sharks and start demanding "proof" of everything under the sun.

 

 If that happens here I will well and properly go on the warpath.

I totally agree, but I still reserve the right to say it's NOT High Fidelity.

 

These are two distinct concepts which sometimes to some of us meet in glorious bliss.

Yup, we're on the same page here... in that something is bad if it sounds bad, regardless of its degree of fidelity.

Pedantic is close to perfection.

 

I love absolute sound - the concept, not necessarily the publication.

In relation to the OP:  I think that the internet is your friend with this.  We are so connected these days that it is much easier for someone to have their story heard.  YouTube, Twitter, Facebook (etc) are easy mediums to spread a story and I would think that any good story would attract a fair amount of listeners.  It seems you have all the ingredients for an engaging narrative. You never know, another publication might be interested in the story?

I actually look forward to reading it each month. I have subscribed for many years. Sometimes I agree. Sometimes I roll my eyes and sometimes I laugh out loud. Either way it is entertaining.

There could be no legitimate demands of "proof" if the so-called "subjectivists" were in fact subjectivists and not what I've called "pseudo-objectivists." And that's largely why things have been so contentious. Typically those who would self-identify as being subjectivists, aren't really content with being subjectivists. Instead, they take their subjective experiences and go on to make what are effectively objective claims. And objective claims should always be open to question or challenge. But when they are, the pseudo-objectivists get their panties all in a bunch and start whining about the big bad objectivists.

 

If one is going to call themself a subjectivist, then damn it, be a subjectivist. Accept your subjective experience for what it is and don't try and take things beyond that. If you do that, then there can be no legitimate challenge to your experience. But if your ego and vanity are not comfortable with that and you try and pass off your subjective experience as some sort of unerring reflection of the objective reality, then expect to be questioned and/or challenged and don't go whining about it when you are.
