    Not sure if this has been posted already. If it has, forgive me.

    This is sure to open a can of worms here but I'm also sure it will make a great discussion [​IMG]

    Much of what he says I totally agree with with my limited knowledge of electronics and just plain common sense.

    However regarding the tubes....I thought we all knew they weren't the best choice for sound reproduction, but that we use them because their distortion is more "pleasant" and they influence the sound in a pleasing way?

    This article is about 10 years old. Man, How humorous can a topic get? What are people saying now about those things? Just wondering?

    So what does the age of the article have to do with it? Audio equipment don't age like computer parts. Stuff from 10 years ago can still be considered top performers, if not state-of-the-art.

    If you don't understand the point, it is OK. Not a big deal. Really. Search the threads and Get A Clue?

    I was trying to decipher your cryptic English and your last post doesn't help much.

    I think he was just encouraging further discussion.

    Absolutely, and using the SEARCH option will not hurt at all with this subject.

    Believe what you want to believe. These have all been argued into the ground with no real results.
     
  9. HD-5000
    Encouraging further discussion by pointing me to the search bar. Now my head hurts.

    x2 on that. Believe what you believe but more than that... trust your own ears

    I love it when people argue against this article... no real standing other than, "Well when I listen on MY system, there's such a clear difference that you must have tin ears not to hear it." Well, if it means I save thousands of dollars for ZERO improvement, then hand me the oil can!

    anyone serious about this hobby should know/learn enough basic perceptual psychology/psychoacoustics to know that its hard to get past errors and bias in "simple" "just listen" type comparisons

    extending the prohibition of DBT discussion policy beyond the cable forum is one of the biggest disservices to the community at headfi

    Of course but that comment was to make the long story short

    What a great article, very well written and amazingly insightful. And, THANK YOU if it is a re-post.

    That wouldn't be so bad as long as the DBT prohibition policy was accompanied by a policy also prohibiting the passing off of subjective experiences as objective reality.
