WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HATE FOR THE HIGH END GEAR ON AUDIO GEAR?


It seems like when I see comments on high end gear there is a lot of negativity. I have been an audiophile for the last 20 years. Honestly, if you know how to choose gear and match gear a lot of the high end gear is just better. When it comes to price people can charge what they want for what they create. If you don’t want it. Don’t pay for it. Look if you are blessed to afford the best bear and you can get it. It can be very sonically pleasing. Then do it. Now if you are also smart and knowledgeable you can get high end sound at mid-fi prices then do it. It’s the beauty of our our hobby. To build a system that competes with the better more expensive sounding systems out there. THOUGHTS?

“I did not need these programs because i only use homemade solutions”

that would explain why you find ABX DBTs to be overly complicated and difficult. The programs you don’t need are the ones that make it simple and easy

You misinterpreted my post because you are too captive of your blinders testing motto ...

Nobody need a ABX DBT to tune a room or to modify a pair of speakers or headphone etc ...

Must i use an ABX comparator to know if my electrical panel is better working for my audio component with or without my homemade plates ?

I dont need it for comparing dac or amplifier because i dont upgrade anyway and even if i upgrade i will not need them ...

If i had been able to tune 100 homemade Helmholtz resonators from few inches to 8 feet by ears and modify my room i can trust my ears to pick what suit me ...

Go for electronical perfection , i myself prefer learning by experiments with my ears and i am happy with creativity my own way ...

Your protocols suit best the cables collectors ... I am not one ...Then before objecting to someone try to read him right ...

When someone tune a room he dont need ABX test , only some measures and his ears ... Or a DSP ...

 

 

And please learn to use the bloc quote just above the post window when using a quote for another post , it will be less fatiguing to read your post ...😁 it is more easy  to figure out than the ABX protocol ...

yeah whatever dude. Par for the course. 

“Nobody need a ABX DBT to tune a room or to modify a pair of speakers or headphone etc ...”

and where did I say anyone needed ABX for room treatments or home brewed speaker mods? 

“Must i use an ABX comparator to know if my electrical panel is better working for my audio component with or without my homemade plates ?”

 

Do whatever the hell you want. All I said was ABX doesn’t have to be complex or difficult to do thanks to a number of ABX programs. That’s just information. What you or anybody else does with that information is up to you and them.
