I like our little conversations.
I have not positioned myself with anyone I believe. I did not realize if I had an opinion, or spoke to any specific person, I was part of one group or another.
As to your great experience, maybe you have more or less than me. That we shall never really know. You do not sound like you have any meaningful experience. To be honest it is not something that concerns me. Your unhappiness and deep need to be right says it all. Audiophilia can be terrible obsessive illness.
You do seem to forget I am a professional. I live in recording studios and have access to music long before it gets mastered and put out on whatever format. Long before it is dithered down to consumer rates in stereo or surround.
The colorations and nuances we are listening to in our respective Hifi systems are tiny in comparison to the ability of the gear I use each day.
You want valves? I can give you valves. You want more width or depth in your soundstage? Easy. You want more weight at 50hz or better highs? No worries.
This is why I dont think you fully understand what your gear is really doing. You have only heard a source which you have had no part in creating on it. I dont think you have heard the source while it was being recorded to know why it sounds this or that way. All you have heard, I believe, is music through this speaker or that etc.
I believe the point is to get as close to the original performance as is possible. This does not mean what sounds best to you in your room every time.
The reasons you dont like this amp or that speaker is down to a set of small, but important details. All of which can be fixed to a point ,especially if you know what you are looking for. Your needs probably differ to mine, but I bet not by that much.
Unless you have changed your front end gear recently, all you have done is open a giant window onto your system which isnt up to your speaker. This will only ever show up every distortion and imbalanced thing in your chain as you know with all your experience. This is why it is a hopeless cause to argue. Just travel down the path do what you can.
I like you Florian. You have gone for it. Good for you. I have to. The problems my system faced have been isolated and dealt with as best as can be done today. Cant you respect that? It is all fun for me.
You didnt get on with an amp and have been bugging me ever since. Maybe you just missed something? I have had many many amps and incarnations of systems, some way beyond what you have had. You feel, as do some others that something in the treble of my amp could be better. It is not a problem. There are ways to solve it, even with my speakers! All other amps have many faults too. It is just a question of what you are willing to put with?
