WOW!!!
« on: December 15, 2018, 08:45:22 PM »
I just spent too much time on an “Audio Contrarian” website and read ton of posts about components - cables, power cables, receptacles, power conditioners, etc.  from scientists, people that don’t even have systems (SK) or the cheapskate argumentative people that post too much to offer guidance or suggestions to newbies.

Damn, I love this place!

They think they know everything some times, and miss stuff...

Few of them seem to be able to connect what people like to hear, and how to get that. They assume THD is all there is...

Glad you’re here, Dave, and all the other knowledgeable and nice guys who frequent this place. Life’s too short for all the rude and aggressive behavior that we encounter elsewhere nowadays.

Is it Audio%^&*)s? :roll:

For an "authority site that claims all high end cable manufacturers are basically selling snakeoil I find it beyond amusing that they actually recommend  SingleAmount and Celadon Pants cables when according to them lampcord and Home Depot is enough.

   Spot on Folsom, spot on. It is not just the audio poster it is the audio press. If measurements were the only criteria to better sound then just stop now and buy a 1970 Japanese receiver with .000001 THD. Oh my !!
  Stereophile IMO is the biggest contributor to this flat earth theory. Only if it measures well can it sound good. BULLSHIT !!! Recently, Aqua Acoustic, LTA and Border Patrol did not meet their measurement standards. BS strikes again. These products sound so good its scary.  Even though thousands yes thousands of customers just disagree, Stereophile still defends their stance. Look at the Jan. issue " As we see it " by Atkinson. A defensive piece by all means.
  The on -line reviewers like Part Time Audiophile, AV Showrooms are the real deal. NO BS there. Just great ears reporting on great sounding gear. Bravo !!

   And if that isn't enough political stance is now on the menu. Be very careful as to whom you give your political view too. I can speak from personal experience. No names no companies for now just be careful. They WILL hurt your business.
