I'm just trying to say I'm going to make everyone know what REAL HIGH-END (Sound science MYTHBUSTING) is and every new "choose of the product" will be adjusted accordingly!! FOR GREAT JUSTICE!

If you, good sirs, are interested, the link is in my forum signature below this post.


I still think your motives might be pure.

 

You may want to read some all of the past posts, and check out the background of some of the participants in this thread.

 

Humility might serve you well.  I find that it's more useful than my perseverance, force of will, and didactic erudition.

It's a philosophy question, so the answer will be in much volume, but instead I will gain some more respect in your eyes, I suppose.

A person has some principles. By principles I mean RULES. My essential rules are: Truth&Justice. Justice is not always true, like the situation with high-end localization for the community. It's Justice, because head-fi did the analising part, but it ain't Truth, because these analisys where somewhat wrong, because the reviewers had no objective info sources.
I'm the source transmitter from the RU community. You may spit may face and call me jerk as you wish, I won't aggro. I appreciate and defend my ego, where it comes to feelings but I do not respect it, by ego I mean emotions. Emotions shall be personal, if you consider yourself a man, yet you make fake some emotions without lying to get to your objectives. That's called being smart smily_headphones1.gif Because egoism is something which is simply ok in society nowadays. I'm trying to fix that - writing a metaphysics book (true philosophy, before me there was only 1 metaphysic - Aristotel).

I'm driven by my principles, as is any of us. I'm just not paying any attention to negative emotions. Lack of self-respect may be an issue because of which I would like to promote myself. I have no such lack, trust me smily_headphones1.gif

2SW: Maybe you didn't control your emotions as you should or you did lack a bit any of the indicated capacities. Optimization is everything and I'm an engineer-programmer smily_headphones1.gif))

Even the thread's brand "SOUND MYTHBUSTING" is done because I wish people to get interested. If I wish to catch attention, I use marketing strategies, BUT accordingly with my principles: Truth&Justice. It's hard to get it, but still.
I use several kinds of optimization viewing a certain situations from nearly_all possible perspectives. Nearly_all because I'm not uber to know/see/observe/control everything.

We may say "an inner conflict" regarding the lack of justice in this part is my main reason. From a psycho-analisys perspective.

One of my principles, which was lead by the "emotions" part is:
If you can do smth good for someone(or community), do so, if you like he/she/them.
I luv this forum and it's crew smily_headphones1.gif

I'd encourage everyone to actually head over to his thread; it's an interesting read, if a little incoherent because of language issues and occasional philosophical rambling. I think there is a real point he's attempting to make, though. I'm not saying I'm convinced or anything, but his basic argument comes down to something that this thread has discussed over and over: EQ.

Fixed with your silent permission, sir.

I suspect that our musical tastes are quite different but the last album to really impress me is Howlin by Jagwar Ma. Loud and noisy though. Somebody that you may well like (and probably know already) is Fiona Apple.

Thanks, lol biggrin.gif
I had some skills of diplomacy and marketing before starting the topic, so I know how to "breathe life" and get desired audience interested wink.gif

Reading through this forum has been very interesting for sure. Personally years ago I initially believed in cables, massive amp differences and dac differences - on no more reason than assumption and expectation. Over the last 3 years I have heard many different equipment pieces and cables and had come to realize that I was hearing nothing in the way of major differences that I felt that I needed to spend more money on - of course objectively the differences were not really there anyway most if not all the time. My current amp was only purchased second hand and presented enough power for even the inefficient Hifimans.

 

I struggle while reading threads a lot of the time, I find it hard not to argue with people who talk about power conditioners and cables as well as things like suggestions to buy 1 grand dacs and such. I almost did yesterday but had to hold back/change my post in order not to start into fighting over something. It is really hard for new people to this community to come here and not be lead down a path to spending inordinate amounts. I'm lucky that I'm not a teenager or young student spending my whole earning on headphone gear, and that I didn't know about all of this as a younger man. Admittedly though I have spent fair amount of headphones themselves.

Very intriguing point! You MUST argue in order to achieve the great justice - youngsters to not "be sorry for their own wallet". I reject the fact wallet matters, just as you do. In a more precise way, I suppose. I allow people to argue with me in that thread THE WAY THEY WANT TO. I'm not an emotional one to get overwhelmed by feelings and start to quarrel. Conflict is a discuss/argue point which is not at all a quarrel. We are just trying to find the truth. And the truth ALWAYS lies in simple things (yet hard_to_find&study)

The point is you probably spend half of that many for the same performance.

Have you ever heard of Axelvox/Superlux, good sirs?

Trust me, the only bomb is in my head.
I know i speak proven truth, but i'm MADE TO develop pedagogical skills in order to BRING THAT to you THROUGH the language barrier....

It's harder than you think....(
If I would be a native english speaker I would already have like 5 followers by just explaining them in detail, using persuasive language.

I feel I look like an old professor, no one can understand biggrin.gif
