As for reviews and the vocabulary used, that isn't my main problem. My main problem is the limited recordings used in those reviews, and the even more limited number of reviews that take them into account first and foremost. I personally am more interested in reading about how a specific recording sounds paired up with X or Y piece of gear rather than a general "soundstage is really wide, the highs glitter like gold in starry night skies" or "this silver cable really makes the music go faster", etc. Keep in mind though that this isn't true for every review out there, but a lot of them don't even mention the music at all.
Funny, I dislike it when a review singles out recordings because it's never any music I listen to. I understand your reasoning but to me that part of the review is all "blah blah" that I have to skip.
