  2. Lindsay describes his 'Hitler' example as "entirely extreme and over the top and cliched" But, how shall we we describe some of the reactions to his post?
  3. I don't imagine that's how he would describe it. I measure musical enjoyment by how often I want to listen to my records and how long for. At the end of several hours of musical enjoyment, when I am surrounded by LP covers, and it's at least 2 hours later than I planned...I have never sat and wondered if the sound was 'coloured'. I suppose my enjoyment is more emotional than intellectual. More pertinently, colourations / distortions that get in the way of the music are easily audible, to me. Colourations / distortions that don't get in the way of the music...are not important (to me). Live and let live, though. You have a clear and determined methodology that I'm sure appeals to many. There's more than one way to decide which equipment to buy...
  4. How do you measure musical enjoyment?
  5. I like all the cheeses... ... ... ... Red Leicester... ... ... ... erm...
  6. You really are 'getting nowhere fast' aren't you?
  7. I suppose I've got to the point where I consider my listening experiences to be my datapoint. Again, whatever works for each person. If we went purely by ,measurements, would anyone ever buy a turntable as opposed to digital? And, yet, I know which one really turns me on...
  8. If I told you, you wouldn't be able to measure it...
  9. Thanks. I do get the apparent (and appealing) logic of being guided by measurements, but I struggle to give it precedence when applied to a subjective pursuit. Each to their own, though. Live and let live. Btw, I own an RME dac, so the two worlds do sometimes collide
  10. My point is to ask whether that is the case, or not...
  11. Am I right in thinking that ASR is the site where they measure hundreds of different bits of kit but never listen to them?
  12. I don't think all DACs sound the same but I do think you can now get a decent ( and reliable & safe) one for under £100. I've always thought that the best upgrade for any digital system is a 15" woofer...
