Seneca disagreed.  So does Chris Rock.

 

OK, I'll bite. What does Seneca say?

Life on music subforum isn't easy for some..x-D


The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

                                                                          ―  William Shakespeare.

Hey, is that new red ring around your glyph something you got from Lucent?


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

Wow, beautiful modern ensōs! I'm huge fan of this simple graphic form. Have to get a nice ensō clock some day e.g.

(just noticed it's actually the same enso that is used in my profile photo, well, the times of internet..)

Thanks for putting the idea into my head somewhere out there might be a very distraught person with a Computer Audiophile tattoo.

There surely is one (probably even more than one)!

From Audioasylum.com :

As for computer audiophile tattoo it would probably have to be something like that :)

My theory is: whatever you can imagine it's possible to find it somewhere either in the present or in the (usually near) future..

I believe it is the opposite: what ever you think exists was imagined by you.

That would mean that e.g. the fact that you don't understand @rando is just a figment of your imagination hence it would consequently mean that you understand him very well.. ;)

How was your stay in India this year.?

If I do not understand something it means only I do not understand it... And yes, it is pure imagination, also in cases when I seem to understand someone or something well. How It would be otherwise?)

 

India - it was very good, thank you!

Yes!  Does it pass JIS?  Is it made by Accuphase?  or any other Kenwood splinter group?  And can I get a nice tsuba on the end?
