But, there isn’t enough time in the day to care about or argue with other people about how they enjoy their lives

Apparently you're wrong about that Chris. I'd say, conservatively, 25% of the posts on this site are exactly about that 😥

Because what we *1) can hear can not by measured by anyone *2) ?

 

1) Make that me. Not you.

2) No comment.

Great! I'll recommend to my physicists friends to stop wasting time and money on expensive equipment. All they need to do is to deploy a few audiophiles to listen to gravitational waves, as I'm sure these make a huge difference in micro-dynamics and sound stage. After an appropriate break-in period, of course.

 

(Please don't ban me, Chris! I'm just having fun, and as you said "Why is it that people care so much about how others have fun"? B|

You would end up with a lopsided (subjective) conversation that may or may not be based on reality. If not based on reality or technical merit, does that help the community as a whole??? I see the punch bowl already tainted with piss and people drinking from it. Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday!

Now you’re taking it to another level. I published mans’ objective article because I really like it. I like the extra info offered to by the objective crowd.

 I also prefer to see pertinent technical information in all equipment reviews, having purchased several items such as Speakers ,DACs etc. based mainly on the excellent measured specifications .

However, if the measurements were the final arbiter as several members keep insisting, you may as well  publish the Objective article and just stick to the cosmetic appearance of the equipment and the Wife Acceptance Factor in your section of the review.

Straddling the fence as I do, both sides have part of the story right, and both have parts of it wrong - in the latter sense, one lot are obsessed with using magic bits in their rig, and that only ultra expensive gear can make it happen; and the other are being ritualistic, and fanatical about the concept that factors which are easy to measure are all that can ever matter.

 

It was obvious to me over 3 decades ago that these two lots of wrong thinking would make it so, so hard for good sound to be more common - from where I stand, there has been close to zero progress since ... now, where is the rolling one's eyes, squared, emoji?

While this sounds logical it’s far from the truth. Many people are here to have fun and try different things. This is a hobby that brings them enjoyment. The last thing they want is people telling them they are wrong, foolish, or crazy. 
 

I don’t understand why those who don’t agree with conversations in which it’s clear their opinion isn’t wanted, must thrust it on everyone. 
 

lopsided is what many people want. Whether it’s objective or subjective, lopsided pleases many people. I prefer both sides but it’s very clear many don’t. 
 

Your vision of what helps the community is one thing but it’s completely opposite for others. 
 

you wouldn’t invite an abrasive republican to a Democrat’s party. She may have great things to say but nobody at the party is interested. Same could be said for a vegan and carnivore.

To me I couldn’t care less how someone strives for what they believe is better sound. I don’t believe anyone else should care either.

"how someone strives for what they believe is better sound. I don’t believe anyone else should care either. "

- That is not the issue - the point is that people are making posts that mislead other consumers.

 

For the record, I have never said that measurements were the final arbiter and it is not clear to me that there is set of measurements sufficient to show one high quality electronic item sounds better than another.

 

For speakers, or for crummy vs. top-notch, yes.


"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."

 Many technically qualified members are Audiophiles too.

 In case some like Kumakuma haven't noticed , this forum is also supported financially by Audiophile manufacturers, unlike forums such as Hydrogen Audio etc. Without their support this forum would more than likely cease to exist.

This forum will continue as an explicit non-audiophile forum. Or maybe not at all.

No idea why you feel the need to call me out in your post but please stop dragging me in your rants.
