The science of why we like — and dislike — certain music
@pryso      "For years, scientists thought these distinct interval preferences were hardwired into our biology; in other words, that our brains are wired to prefer one sound over another — nature over nurture, if you will. But a new study seems... 
different people may hear the same sound differently...
@jonwolfpell Agreed. The eye uses the same CPU as the ear, why should it be any different?  
The science of why we like — and dislike — certain music
that's what researchers are indicating.  
different people may hear the same sound differently...
@gs5556  Indeed. Yet the claims and forum wars continue.  
NAD M23 Stereo Amplifier: Best Amp Ever Bench Tested?!?
@mirolab  The M23 used the latest Purifi amp modules vs the older Hypex ncore modules in the M22.  
different people may hear the same sound differently...
@cd318    Exactly what I have been saying though by some of the responses you would think I suggesting eating babies.  
different people may hear the same sound differently...
@djones51    I agree that this should be universally understood. To me, it’s why I look for electronic components that measure beyond human audibility and speakers with a flat FR in anechoic chamber since they would be easier to "tune" to my ta...

@nonoise One would hope but there are clearly many who don’t. Or they haven't kept current with modern research.

Great book... "How do our brains create meaning from the sounds around us? That is the question at the heart of a new book from neuroscientist Nina Kraus, called Of Sound Mind." KRAUS: So I think it's a really compelling point that each one of u...

@jerryg123      There is no better, there is only different, when it comes to opinions of taste. Tubes sound better to you, great. They don't sound better to everyone, as proven by @djones51.  Our preferences are determined by experience, learn... 
The science of why we like — and dislike — certain music
I believe the implications of this extend beyond simply what type of music we prefer to actually having something to do with what sounds we prefer. Why do some, but clearly not all,  people prefer tubes to ss for example. It's obvious that while o...

I don’t use a tube preamp with class D amps, kind of defeats the point of getting class D. I don’t want a damn tube in a DAC either. If you want tubes then buy tube amps. My feeling too....But don't worry, from what I hear in another thread, in... 
NAD M23 Stereo Amplifier: Best Amp Ever Bench Tested?!?
Speaking for myself, it's all about what I hear.  Usually, I already know the price.  But not always.  The "specs" doesn't really matter. Many would agree with you about "specs" not mattering to them. Many others feel differently. Whatever wor...

@jerryg123     Also it is interesting that the majority of owners of separates utilizing Class D power amplification are using Tubed Preamplifiers like LTA, A-S, AR, SUPRATEK. Quick Silver, on and on. How do you know that the majority of cl... 
NAD M23 Stereo Amplifier: Best Amp Ever Bench Tested?!?
@twoleftears      Only in the most superficial way...The spec wars of Japanese transistor amps were based on a false premise...The science and engineering has improved in the last 50 years. See:   "The other important trend in the 60’...
