That's not a cliché that's a fact, surely ?

Hey, is yours a desktop system? Shame the CA doesn't have a remote, would be very useful

"The metal tweeters give a metallic edge..."

"The silk domes lend a silky smoothness to..."

"Valve amps have a warm presentation..."

"The speaker cabinets - made of dark chocolate - made them sound smooth with a slightly dark, bitter edge..."

... and so on.

I dread to think what makes a system sound 'organic'.  Bull****  maybe?

Those two are probably aimed squarely at me. The Silver range does have a metallic edge, although ever recall saying that about other speakers.

I've explained 'organic' before. It means natural sounding, so think of it like organic food. Or aren't we allowed to use a smidgen of 'writers licence' when posting?

Not so much. The thing about cliche's is that we are all prone to resort to them occasionally. Myself included.

It is very hard to describe the sound of a system without using some cliches.....as the same group of adjectives always apply and have been used before.

No, only marketing departments. Then again, only until the ASA is notified Smile

From now on, everyone is only allowed to make claims that can be scientifically proven, 100%, and backed up by ABX testing...

Yeah but you would say that cos you're just trying to sell things...

 

 

... is one of the most annoying cliches I see on this website.
