Thanks a lot. Of course, such systems exist.
Could you plug-in Gilmore Lite into your 'well-behaving' system?
What wiil Gilmore Lite do with the sound? Will it enhance it or
will GL 'sprinkle' it with the udesirable sound attributes (1)-(4)?
I don't know! Assume, and just hypothetically assume, that it would
'sprinkle it with 'tinny' sound attributes. How to interpret this fact?
(I) Should we say, in this hypothetical case,
that Gilmore Lite 'contaminated' the sound, because Gilmore Lite
didn't like the source and the cans? Gilmore Lite is simply allergic to them?!
No synergy between the source & cans vs. Gilmore Lite?
(II) Should we say that Gilmore Lite simply didn't deliver in this case
? (Read my Dislaimer
Note that this is a somehow philosophical
question, isn't it?
How to interpret this? When you say: it's raining!
Should we just say: it's not sunny?
It depends on whom
If you ask Gilmore Lite's fanatics and addicts they would say:
your system ain't good! Do not dare to criticize GL! Period!
There are many Gilmore Lite lovers on this site! Can they come up and give us
positive examples of GL's behaviour? We wanna listen to them!
I asked this question in my post! How would GL behave with the DT770s and,
of course, with a decent source (but not very expensive)!
Maybe this inexpensive (entry level) amp needs: cables $100/inch, PSU ($5,000+),
source Zanden $55,000-CD player (see my post 'Lamborghini Among CD Players for $55,000'), etc ...
then this toy is a complete failure!
With such an expensive entourage (see Discussion in my original post)
one would not even look at GL - one would buy at least a $5,000-headphone amp!
