I keep reading posts that remind me of this video. It won't take much effort for you guys to see a parallel between what she discusses and the typical communication problems we encounter on the forum.

The question is, do they actually believe it, or are they just arguing to validate an unsupportable position? ...whether because of ego, or just to stir the pot.

They truly believe it. At least most of them. Marketing is a pretty strong force that influences our own beliefs.

I sorta think ego and not being able to admit you’re wrong is even more powerful than advertising. The giveaway is when they refuse to put it to a test. They know they would fail, and they just don’t want to admit it.

A couple new things I did to my listening room have me a bit excited. I got some additional foam in places to help block reflections for mid/high frequencies. Had some already, but not nearly enough. I only have a single seating position to deal with, so I don't need to go too crazy. What is really cool is that when I clap my hands loudly, I don't hear any echo at all. It is dead. The difference before and after is quite significant. I'm going to have to remeasure the room again and set my EQ accordingly.

Something I noticed a few months ago, and another small change that made a significant difference was to open up the corners and middle of the back of the room...by leaving the doors open. That's it. By opening the doors to the room, that bass null that was impossible to correct was reduced to a third of what it was before.

The room is still fundamentally terrible and too small, but today it is much better than it was before. Bass is really tough to correct without the right room to begin with, but the highs and most mids can be tamed quite a bit with foam and EQ.

Very cool. Now you have a good excuse to listen to a whole lot of music!
