Perhaps you don't understand our intent. We aren't trying to convince anyone. We're simply pointing out misconceptions and explaining how sound reproduction works. It's up to the reader to absorb that and be convinced. Many people aren't capable of that. I don't know about other posters, but I tend to speak past those kinds of people to the lurkers. They might get benefit from the information, even if the person I'm replying to doesn't care. I don't need validation, but I'm always open to solid information that I don't know about yet. Not all opinions are created equal. Some are backed up with facts, and others are completely made up. I make an effort to only speak about things that I know about. Not everyone is that careful.
