Re: Make sense of this amp test.
His technical stuff is correct but the rest is the primary reason why I had to jump ship in the home audio industry.
For example, a quote:
"The guy I bought this from was well-meaning, but did not know how to listen subjectively."
Uh... doesn't know how to listen subjectively? Really? So that's what audio excellence is boiled down to.... subjective experiences? FFS... "I like chocolate ice cream" is subjective. "Blue is the best color" is subjective. "Blondes have more fun" is subjective.
How the fawk can anyone not listen subjectively? To argue that a person can't listen subjectively is to argue that that person can't have an opinion.
Of course, I'm sure he meant to use the word objective, which absolutely cannot apply to audio sound quality..... EVER.
In the end, it's lame attempt at being a yuppie sound magazine reviewer that's rife with spelling and grammatical errors.
Oh and, did I mention that this kind of crap is the reason why I bailed on the home theater/hifi business? Maybe he should have used a $3,000.00 pair of interconnects. I'm sure that would have made the sound more "warm and tube like" even though the amp had a bad FET.
