Empiricist? Positivist?

Recommended Posts

Most certainly positivist, in the sense defined here. My ears tell me whether I've got the right result, but audio engineering guides me in designing new circuitry, or adapting current units. If I replace some part of a component I will always give you a rational explanation for why that makes sense; no "boutique" capacitors, or expensive add-ons for me.


That said, I never measure anything, unless something's clearly faulty and I need to track it down - to this day I have not read a single explanation by the 'objectivists' as to why I need to measure what I've got, that has any tweaking value.
