How should we situate the Abyss compared to all these flavors, and overall ranking that can be expected, according to criteria specific of comparisons (with strengths and weaknesses) as established rigorously by David Mahler.
The Abyss deserves its place in the top 10, or even better?
You can always make your own top 10. I don't think David has had a chance to hear the Abyss or update his list yet.
LOL. This is Head-Fi where a high SNR is expected. The subject title of this thread is rather provocative; probably because Eric wanted to have some debate and bring in some other opinions from non-English speakers. In that sense, the links he has provided is on topic. I enjoy reading impressions from people outside of the English speaking nations, i.e. USA, Canada, UK. It provides another perspective, and the debates on HFCR are a rather fresh perspective, at least to me.
There's always "unsubscribe". Best to do so silently, although it's much more fashionable to type "unsubscribe" in the thread before doing so.
