The natives are restless today.
That’s not what Julian Hirsch said.
From somewhere in cyberspace,
“For example, in April 1977, he stated: “I do not believe that any amplifier that is reasonably good and operating as intended has any sound quality of its own, at least not in the sense that phono cartridges, speakers, and listening rooms have their distinctive sounds.”
His statement predated the advent of CD players by the way.
It appears he never actually commented on the sound of components he tested. And he didn’t believe in wire or cables. Kind of like a lot of people today, no?
