I have been an audiophile the last 20 years for the last 5 years I have worked with Infigo Audio as my industry affiliation.  It’s been my experience in business and audio conversations that there are 2 areas that are interesting. When giving opinions many audiophiles try to come off smarter than the people they are talking to. Also in conflict resolution if you have disagreements they are more willing to go to extremes. Has anyone else experienced this.  Some seem like they can tell you what to do? How to post etc. which to me is crazy. Most of us are 30, 40, 50, 60,70 plus.  Thoughts everyone?


We participate in a hobby where people have different experiences. Acoustically and equipment wise. Some of us are completely closed minded to cables making a difference. Some think that certain prices are a waste no matter how good the equipment is. The thing that really interests me is that the level of expertise people THINK THEY HAVE! In addition to that they think that that allows them to speak in ways to other audiophiles that are justified in their minds. There is no certifications Or authentication processes that we go through. I have no problem with one’s opinions. Just the way the deliver it!

I am very satisfied in the hobby, my system and sound.

What bugs me are the manic street preachers and most of them are measurements crowd. Experience in application is worth more to me than a specification sheet, not demeaning a spec sheet it is all part of the process but it is not the process. 

Your opinion is exactly that, it is not fact. Also could do with a little less wokeness around here. 

Thanks for your post ...

These three points are the only things i said and insisted upon  because it is the only factors  that had a great impact on my acoustic experience satisfaction, way more than the upgrades i tried which were anyway near the same cost window ... ...

They apply to any system at any price but it is way more evident with low cost system... Why ?

Nobody with a 50,000 bucks speakers will add straws in his porthole as i did with my low cost speakers ...😁

Because the difference between the optimal working level and the actual working level are not on the same ratio at all with low cost speakers and high -end one ...The designer of high end speakers had adressed some problems already in his design cost and planification in a way the low cost speakers designer could not ...

But this economic factor and design factor dont change the basic fact about the necessary embeddings controls implementation in the two case but it must be done in a way appropriate for each design characteristics ...It is not all speakers luckily for all which will need straws in their porthole to reach their optimal level as with this low cost speakers i own ... 😵

And i never said that upgrading is useless i said it is often meaningless and a waste of money if we dont learn first to optimize what we already have ...

Upgrading must be done AFTER we had learn why and how and with what ...

My very best to you ... 😊


Absolutely! If people did the three things you mention...

  • Basic acoustics -- reflections and frequency curves
  • Basic electrical noise to signal ration optimization
  • Vibration resonance control

...there would be far more satisfaction in the hobby.
