Objective vs Subjective…
@jmkrajnik  Thankyou for the corrected link.  Yes, a super good read which I recommend.  Bookmarked for reference.  The anecdote you shared about fixing the paint issue is interesting in that it is clear that with a system with many variables and... 
Objective vs Subjective…
Really? 99% of ‘cases?’ What cases? How did you arrive at this specific figure? ...But at the ultra performance nosebleed level, Think CH Precision, Soulution, Gryphon, Of all the homes with a stereo system what would be a reasonable guess as t... 
Michael Aday (Metloaf) has passed away.
@roxy54 Silly Asinine post richopp. Fixed  
Michael Aday (Metloaf) has passed away.
Jim Steinman (who also died, last year) and Meatloaf in conversation circa 1993.  Banter.  Sparring. Whatever. Too much very good stuff.        
Objective vs Subjective…
@jmkrajnik One thing that people expect is that scientists actually understand the numbers that they are generating. Here read this article that I’ve posted before: Unfortunately that link provides a 404 error on my end. Does it perhaps refer ... 
Objective vs Subjective…
@axo0oxa why isn’t one of the choices measures well and sounds fantastic. Maybe one day you will get used to questions being framed in a predictably deliberate manner by the OP. Well known as "leading" questions. Anyway, there is no excuse for...

Can you hear when the fuses are in the right way? Now that I have undertaken government sanctioned experimental genetic therapy, of course I can.  
How much “suspension of disbelief do you need?”
I don't think I'd want the full symphony orchestra playing in my music room. Where would they all sit?  There's quite sufficient space in my Tardis.  
CD transports
@facten Op, if you want to degrade your sound take this advice proffered above: From the OP -  I recently started running my CD player ( Luxman D380) through my external DAC and have found a significant sonic improvement.  I'm now tempted t... 
CD transports
@jasonbourne52 Keep and use your Luxman CD player as a transport until the laser gets too weak to read a disc. Hang on. I recently replaced my 14 year old Rega Saturn laser mechanism box type thing (by a qualified tech, he also took the opportu... 
Objective vs Subjective…
No I would not like an amp that has extremely low (inaudible?) THD. That is actually the reason it won’t sound any good. (I’ll pay no attention to the THD signature just for now). A low total THD number is exceptionally poor, not amazing.. So, ... 
Counterfeit Chinese Cables
@kaarmstrong But once again you fail to share with the community any reasons other than hand waving and motherhood statements. Not good enough. OK - sigh. That another company is benefiting is of no importance and is irrelevant. You would know ... 
Counterfeit Chinese Cables
@kaarmstrong The company plonks the Nord image on its cables because people want to buy fake Nord cables. These are not people who would consider buying $20,000 legitimate Nord cables. Perhaps you missed my previous sentence on passing off. I’ll... 
Counterfeit Chinese Cables
@kaarmstrong So, you wish to sell a brand new car that you built for about $100 (that’s important) and say that its a Ford. While I wonder how it must feel to be a rocket scientist, one or two issues. There exist laws in first world countries wh... 
Counterfeit Chinese Cables
Now placing an established name brand on knock off cables is unethical. I disagree. I don’t understand what is unethical about this seller doing what they are doing, and you have provided no reason for saying that it is unethical. Not that its...
