Audio Science Review = "The better the measurement, the better the sound" philosophy
There are 246 posts on my forum and I would say that 95% share similar attitudes towards ASR and additional criteria to evaluate audio equipment.  I have also become more mindful in my posts from 5 or 15 years ago.  I did make one negative comment... 
Audio Science Review = "The better the measurement, the better the sound" philosophy
@tonywinga  I've mentioned in other forums that I built listening rooms in my prior home in 1993 and spent $150,000 in a high end design room built from scratch in 2019 in my current home (my last).  Everyone who hears my system now revels in the ...

I want to mention that many of my direct to disc Japanese LPs from the 1970s have very explicit information on the recording chain including the monitors and a schematic of the mike setup/mixer.  
Best vibration isolation for speakers on carpet?
@theaudiotweak  Your posted video was excellent.  ASR (AudioScienceReview) lambasted this guy and his video as unscientific and snake oil.  This is exactly why I started a forum concerning ASR and their inadequacies as well as venomous hatred for ... 
Best vibration isolation for speakers on carpet?
My floorstanders weigh 210 lbs each.  They are sitting on 90 oz plush pile over a 12" 3000 psi concrete slab steel reinforced.   I am using spikes designed for the speakers.   It may not be correct but in earthquake country, it appears stable whic...

@mikepowellaudio @goofyfoot @vonhelmholtz  100%  Arrogance=ASR members (generally).  I noted the two members who either end conversations or are ridiculed.  I was thrown out because I had unsupported statements, indicated my attachment to the liv... 
Audio Science Review = "The better the measurement, the better the sound" philosophy
I agree with you, just as the listening room is very important so is our hearing capability.   I always used earplugs at loud live concerts and using noisy power tools.  I don't listen above 100db to anything.   I'm 66 and have been tested.   I ca... 
What speakers have you mistakenly let go and then later repurchased?
I had Advents, Dynaco 25, 35 & 50, ADS 620, all of which are long retired/gone (40+ years).  I consider someone keeping the older set rather than repurchasing it satisfactory for this forum discussion.  
Audio Science Review = "The better the measurement, the better the sound" philosophy
The Dutch and Dutch have superb measurements and apparently very pleasing sound.  They would not be my choice though.  And they are expensive.   I'd rather have the Revel 228 or my Legacy Signature IIIs for very much less.    
Audio Science Review = "The better the measurement, the better the sound" philosophy
How about this statement by MattHooper that ended the discussion on The Truth About Vinyl Records:  Most of what people are doing on a forum like this has very little to do directly with the appreciation of music. Page upon page of discussion, and... 
Audio Science Review = "The better the measurement, the better the sound" philosophy
@kokakolia Agree and that's why I posted my experience.    What is missing from ASR and discussions is used equipment.  When I was younger, I sought out highly rated used equipment, especially speakers.  I purchased Audionics, Acoustat X, 1+1 ad ... 
Audio Science Review = "The better the measurement, the better the sound" philosophy
My preference for a reviewer is J. Gordon Holt.  The equipment he found to be musically pleasing is still musically pleasing.   I have noted that it was not Amir who wrote scathing opinions about my equipment and myself but the followers of Amir. ... 
Audio Science Review = "The better the measurement, the better the sound" philosophy
I am not one who goes for the hype.  I test our tweaks before buying them.  As to my equipment, I have custom built 22 year old amps, pre-amp and phono pre-amp.  My speakers are 28 years old.  My modified SME IV is 33 years old.  My VPI TNT VI is ...

Another reason not to trust anything ASR states as fact or as the best.

Yes, and mostly on cheap audio gear.
