Well. I disagree that digital has to be intrusive.
I disagree that SSamps are too.
I don’t want to see a ribbon tweeter or standard Subwoofer in my
I cant stand SET sound. It bores me to death. I need the fresh kick and
dramatic punch of a dynamic SS AB amp.
Reg. the digital i know that having all vinyl-tube chain, and plugging a
really good ADDA in the chain that gives exactly 1:1 pass through, u cant
hear a difference. Fact. You have to do it blind though then
everybody will fail distinguishing! I bet my *** on that.
So everything that u “touch / eq / deform” within the 01010 part... is up
to you. If this sounds bad, then u did something wrong. Likely vast
Even if it does touch a molecule, room modes, phase delay, unlinearity is
by far more intrusive. Its like comparing that molecule with a galaxy.
Anthony, I think you do not understand
it. I told about it before. The visit
was not doomed before Josh even knocked on my door and it
was NOT a failure. It was a very successful visit and was perfectly prepared to
deal with Josh’s reaction, in fact I was kind of looking forward to it a bit. I
just was not prepared for two things:
That Josh will refuse
to any accommodations to satisfy his sonic discomfort, while he was in my
listening room. I always do it to my visitors, particularly not well
audio-developed. I want people feel in
own zone of comfort within their sonic preferences and do not want my preferences
to distract them. The most audio evolved people know how to tune themselves off
from own audio preferences and the mist wonderful game take place: we listen each
other playbacks, hearing the deviation from where we feel the sound should be
and then try to understand what the system owner was trying to say by own differences,
it is like reading somebody novel, very interesting. The unexperienced people,
who not frequently come to my listening room, do not have this level of understanding
and they are looking for equilibrium with their purely sonic comfort. It is the
level #1 of sonic inelegance by Lechitsky’s classification or as I call it
sometimes the level #0a. (Among all people you are among the few who know how
perfect the multi-amping let to hsape any sound you want). Usually as I re-tune
Macondo for my visitors to be happy with sound then I let them to discover that
to not to be “disturbed” by playback is not the final audio objectives but very
beginning. I have many people who discovered this fact in my listening room. I
was not prepared that Josh refuse to go in there, the opportunities were there
and everything that we are discussing how was discussing with Josh while he was
here. I think his time did not come yet.
I was absolutely
not prepared that Josh will be posting “review” at diyaudio.com site where I
have no ways to express my views.
Regarding the views Josh expressed about him liking this and
disliking that. They are perfectly valid views and there is absolutely nothing in
those views that I find defective. The problem that Josh does not have them. It
is hard to understand. What he says or feel has no relativity to reality of
sound. If you sit with him and asked him to pull a recording that demonstrate
this or that his audio point of view, he will not understand what you mean. I actually
did it with him and was w asking him multiple times “what doe it mean to you?”
What he demonstrated was the very primitive level
#0a and did not get any slightest idea that it might be anything else in there.
It was like discussing with a life-long vegetarian some kind of very fine specific
of taste of pork marinade…
