XNOR- I think the best possible situation is that we agree to disagree. We have a totally different philosophy on the approach when talking to people . If technical information is of use when describing a loudspeakers wattage-sensitivity etc then I would supply it along with how it sounds so that the person reading it knows the limits of the power output and whether to buy a powerful amp for a low sensitivity loudspeaker or not. But to quote scientific terms that most don't want to know about is futile to the person asking the question . Time after time on Head-Fi somebody says --"that's all very well but all I want to know is what it sounds like" . There are at this minute many people wanting to know just that on head-fi If you feel so strong about it why don't you stick to technical questions only and leave the subjectives alone without jumping in to every subjective --question/ answer on head-fi and criticizing them for not being technical . I have spent enough of my life discussing technical minutia with others like me. It gets boring after a while and to me its not the real world that human beings live in.Especially when its being turned into a "philosophy " or a semi-religion. to brainwash others. Its something I am totally immune to.
Yes I disagree and yes we have a different approach talking to people. I like to tell them the truth, what's actually going on, and not speaking in riddles and meaningless flowery words.
What's the difference between accurate "scientifc" terms people need to learn vs. inaccurate, flowery audiophile terms people need to learn? But that's not all of it. For such terms it's usually not enough to just read the glossary, you also have to skim through reviews and get to know the "taste" of the reviewer to get a better idea what he means.
You make it sound like people don't need to look up audiophile terms, or that such terms all have an inherent meaning everybody understands clearly ... that couldn't be further from reality.
This is Sound Science, if something is too technical to you here, nobody forces you to be here. Also, I don't see a reason to complain about me being technical and I'm definitely not jumping on every subjective question on head-fi, that's simply a lie.
I understand how you were getting bored with reality and live somewhere else now. Let us know when you're back - and please make use of the Enter key.
