So I joined this forum in 2006 because I value others opinions. But in a recent thread @kuribo states the following below…. Personally I value everyone’s opinions especially in different types of systems and rooms. Yes it’s just an opinion. But to me it’s useful. Am I wrong to think that?
Copy and paste from @Kuribo
I dunno, are you wrong to think ^that^?
Personally I do not value everyone’s opinions equally, but it is good to give some consideration to most opinions.
“How do you define "superiority"?
Many things can be objectively superior.
That is why we have wow-n-flutter, and rumble in dB… so one can objectively compare things.
The post you are referring to is a bit of dog’s breakfast. Those amps are both objectively good, and subjectively good.
If I was going to start an argument of objective versus subjective, I would be selecting a unit with poor objective, or poor subjective performance. And I wouldn’t take one that is high scoring on both fronts to argue the point.
(or maybe I would to argue the point that sometimes they’re correlated.)
Of course all you have read here are subjective opinions because the vast majority of people here either believe their opinion actually has relevance to those besides themselves or they believe the opinions of others have relevance to themselves.”
Some like to share, some just like to argue, some have questions and want input, and some are on here for other reasons.
In any case I do find it helpful when one can show how or why something is superior, or demonstrate that it can be repeatably show to be subjectively superior. Without that, it is pretty much a mishmash of opinions.
I think we all need to remember we are all trying to learn. We are also here to share and to help each other.
Maybe not all of us, @larry5729 but I appreciate those that do.
