    Will Bad Times Make Good Music?

    Well, looking at the OP title I would say yes if harrowing and unrequited love counts for bad times. Look at Adele, great music (if pop is your thang) , pity about the recording quality.

    It is not intended to be offensive at all. Yes you are correct, people will have a variance of opinion, that should not be construed as insult in and of itself. For example my Avatar is better than yours...but I digress 😜

    Ah good talking about skiing now. Powder is fine but nothing like skiing on piste with fresh snow on a compacted base. The steeper the better and throw in some moguls, Yay. Damn I love how those Austrians do it ! Took me 20 years to get even close, boots locked together in parallel turns. Totally inefficient but looks and feels spectacular! Talk about Endolphin effect (but out of water).....Galazo....'azzo......'azzo !

    With respect this attitude starts arguments. That said, as seen in a recent thread, The OP controls content. Clearly define what is and what is not off topic. If purely subjective thoughts are the order of the day state it in the OP. It must be respected. If you want to have a purely technical discussion state the parameters. This may solve many of the problems. The biggest issue in my view are threads that start off as click bait, like "So, Class D sucks eh". It will never end well.

    I recommend "Live and Let Listen" and "Live and let hear" In my view this is at the heart of most so called objectivists vs subjectivist arguments. Both sides are no doubt guilty when there is escalation. Perhaps we could all either not challenge beliefs or if challenging, do so in a non inflammatory way. This is particularly important for the initiator of the "challenge". For example, if someone says they get better sound using a bucket of sand for grounding. My response is I don't get that but so what, let it go. If someone chimes in with "you have sand in your head" which I saw recently implied in a post, it is likely to launch an argument. The other typical challenge, that "this is not possible you are delusional" response, whether true or not, simply inflames. Just choosing the wording to be less inflammatory would go a long way IMO to a better quality discourse. Of course everyone could take the high road and ignore certain comments but a middle road seems to me more achievable and certainly more productive.

    Could this be a little snowflake reaction 🙌

    Ralph perhaps point out where your hero has found such transgressions, it is his claim after all . I simply repeat " I submit there are good and a minority of bad engineers and some people may justifiably find the statements made by the latter as "clueless, brainwashed, or worse" (quoted are your idol's words) - bullying trolls bent on ridicule.

    If the original designs were as good as so often claimed by the E.E.s that designed them, then there should be very little need for further experimentation ! Trudat but good engineers, thankfully in the majority, are ever willing to experiment and modify.

    Should you wish to specify the arguments of the "articular person" go ahead otherwise stop trying to derail the thread in your usual fashion. Last time you did this you got the thread frozen, clearly your intention now.

    This was fully debated and pointed out in another thread.Suggest you read it and address your comments there unless your plan is to further derail this thread. The current 'argument' concerns the statement made by @elcorso

    Pleading scientism instead of science, whether by misunderstanding or misappropriation, is fairly common among bullies and trolls pushing an anti audiophile agenda. Scientism is used as a tool to ridicule people with a variance of opinion and dismiss said opinion as subjective or imaginary, typically any possibility of audible difference between components.It has now expanded to an anti industry tactic by a militant few extremists speaking from a political soapbox. When more rigorous, valid science and objective evidence are requested from those peddling scientism there is a false righteous outrage among the faithful followed predictably by a string of insults.

    Ok just one more comment from me. The problem Shadders is that you genuinely project your misunderstanding onto others. You are literally describing yourself. You confuse scientism with science and present pseudoscience as fact. You are so invested in your faith of scientism that no-one can reason you out of it. I leave you to your beliefs. Good -bye.
