  1. How can it be when you've found it funny in the past?
  2. How can it be when you've found it funny in the past?
  3. This is how I use measurements. To shortlist what I demo and then decide with my own ears (subjective personal preferences). I use various sources of measurements, ASR, JA at Stereophile, DS at SoundStage, HiFi News mag and more. I mentioned this earlier in the thread, even before I asked for this thread to be closed on page 7 of this thread, because the thread had served it's purpose and was going in a direction I did not like ... that evidence is in writing below... The Audiophile Stylist thought it was a good idea to keep the thread going, strangely.
  4. @Miska did you have the title & authors of the TIM paper you mentioned, so I could search.
  5. Out of interest, have you seen/witnessed these (highly trained) operators hear things at abnormally low levels? That software misses?
  6. And that includes above 20 kHz and up to 100 kHz, at -120 dB level?
  7. Over there, for years he's been posting about how his connected "golfing buddies" (his actual words) have said Spotify will never go into lossless. And that Spotify did their market research. Clearly their market research didn't factor in one of the other Big 4 making the first move like I told him many times years ago... He was also told by PC Audiophile in that thread to stop making things up. See below. So I'm amused that he's chimed in here. On this ASR thread here, I've asked PC Audiophile to comment on specific examples of measurements... not chats with golfing b
  8. It's clearly just this. He's nicely tried to dodge the key and on-topic questions. The Denon AVR example - how did ASR's measurements not benefit the consumer? The Vinnie Rossie Ultracapacitor power supply example - how did ASR's proof that this did not do what the manufacturer claimed, not help consumers? If he actually addresses these I can give more examples...
  9. Couldn't be more factually incorrect. I put in writing to PC Audiophile that he could have the last word. Please read. Then try again to paint a fake motives picture. Just like PC Audiophile, conveniently ignoring facts. He clearly thought everything after this on page 7 was beneficial, despite even more requests from me to shut it down.
  10. If that's the way you like to behave then take it to another thread please. Stick to the ASR measurements discussion or please go find a different thread somewhere else to gaslight. Appalling. Here, play the ball not the man or find something else to do.
  11. I said sports not ice skating 😁 Just kidding! Everyone relax
  12. I think you're reading too much into this. As per my reply above, I simply took issue with some things he wrote. Mostly after page 7. Here is what I wrote on page 7, in case you didn't reach that page. How you can think this post is "having a piss at Chri's leg" well I'm afraid I'd have to disagree. But it's there for all to read and interpret I guess. You mention "motives"... the below example really shows my ill intentioned motives ... Thanks for chiming in though.
  13. I'm not sure if you've played a lot of sports but I always 'play the ball, not the man'. Meaning I don't care who Chris is. I look at what he writes. If I believe he's being disingenuous with what he writes, then I am free to discuss that with him. And he can do the same to me. And we hash it out like adults. I don't care about Amir the person. I've written that for over 20 pages. Please go back and familiarise. I see value in the measurements he provides, as well as JA at Stereophile, SoundStage measurements, Erin's Corner on YouTube, HiFi News
  14. I even put it in bold for you but you missed it. Needs a copy and paste it seems: The verifications (measurements) don't lie ;-) the measurements are the measurements but if one doubts, they are there for people to try and reproduce if in doubt History has shown us that words... can lie :-) I've done the same verification measurements as mitchco and he is bang on, all the time. A great asset, to various forums, including here and ASR.
  15. Beyond what I already wrote (I don't see any benefit in another circular discussion on this) I personally don't care about the written articles anyway. Except.... mitchco's... His verification (measurements) of different DSP correction solutions is Hall of Fame material.
  16. Good, then you agree with the facts I laid out and not your alternative facts of "you insinuate that I'm on the take, without any evidence, and leave disparaging remarks about me"
  17. More lies from you. Here are the facts, not your alternative facts: 1. One of your writers in this very thread confirmed they are paid to write reviews on whatever they like. That wasn't news to me, it's been mentioned in other threads before. 2. The forum sponsors are all there for people to see. People can decide for themselves if there is potential for conflict of interest. Unless you have something against people thinking for themselves? That would be ludicrous. 3. You are the one that started the disparaging remarks. Would you like me to cop
  18. All good, I respect that. Those people I listed (and more) have added great value to this thread.
  19. This has been happening in this very thread... With Miska, Pkane, Plissken... So I'm not sure what your point is? Do you have any value to add, on the topic of measurements at ASR? Or not?
  20. Copy/paste is very useful when replying to people that try to deflect and ignore the examples and questions. Readers and especially newcomers reading your replies should be reminded. I show examples and ask you questions and answer your questions and you back-pedal and try to deflect and ignore answering with really pathetic replies. People can see this disingenuous behaviour clearly. This particular copy/paste below is important for others to see who actually had good intentions very early on in this thread. When some claims 'crusade'
  21. More 'nothing' chirpy replies. Pathetic. The attempted (but failed for all to see) back-pedalling is comical. You could have avoided this when I asked you respectfully to close the thread on page 7 of this thread.
  22. This is pathetic. Evidence that you are a waste of time here. I even showed you the statement from Denon themselves but you conveniently ignore it. Below once again. Denon's word. More clear evidence of disingenuous behaviour by you, for everyone to see. Explain to me, how ASR finding issues with the Vinnie Rossi Ultracapacitor Power Supply did not benefit consumers? His measurements showed that it did not do what it claimed to do. The particular product was pulled from the market very soon after the review. You will again conveniently dismiss th
  23. Forget about your discussion with Paul for a moment. And now look at the example I shared. And explain to me how Amir's measurements in that example did not benefit the consumer? He found an issue through measurement, Denon acknlowedged and fixed it.
  24. I presented many lines of information with an example and you chirp with another one liner... another 'nothing' reply. Share information about how that example is not good for consumers?
  25. You're right, this example is not good for consumers. The style of reviews where money is involved is better.
