(Nice to see your link came from such a well researched, scientifically respectable site.)
I like the one on that site that says Obama deliberately threw the presidential debate the other night becuase he knows there's some huge natural disaster coming in January and he doesn't want to be president when that happens and isn't it spooky that the last date on his campaign itinerary is in Denver and after all that's where the whole of the federal government has been secretly relocating for years and the Europeans are all in it and know what's about to happen because apparently Mother Nature is angry and the East coast of North America is going to fall off completely.

And if those UFO nutters think those 'audiophile' products are bad, what does that say?
Do the oposite of the nutters. Blue dots for all!

I think it's reasonable to expect WHF to identify products that actually influence SQ, rather than identify products that that look like they affect SQ. Am I alone or unusual in wanting this?
Did anybody make it further than the bloke saying... "I have what? 6 hours stuff to present..."

Sorry, I dont think they do a 2 minute cartoon version for Apple users.
BTW, I have no clue what those are, I seriously doubt, however, an alien spaceship has been parked so close to the sun. Seems a bit impractical.
Most compelling argument ever. After all, I'd listen to everything else "those UFO nutters" have to say and certainly take their views on board.
Pfft, Typically we like our two minute videos to have a softly spoken English chap on a white background saying "remarkable" a lot, thank you very much.
Why are some of you so defensive?
I can only conclude you must disagree with the claims that these blue and green dots dont work?
And have you actually spent the time to watch that video I posted?
How very strange.
Ah, but those aliens might have a few of these babies on board - not only would they have superior sound, but I doubt even the sun could affect a ship decked out with some of these beauties:
Welcome to the world of hifi forums. Strange just about sums it up. Fwiw, I've watched that video in the past, there is far too much truth and knowledge in there for some of this lot.

Covenanter, you seem to arguing that there is no place for the review industry as a whole. But by doing that you risk throwing the baby out with the bath water.
No I'm not arguing for that at all. There are clear areas in HiFi where judgements can't be wholly objective, speakers are the obvious example, and I'm perfectly willing to listen to opinions in those areas. However there are other areas where objective reviews could be undertaken. Blind testing of cables, mains conditioners, etc could be undertaken very easily and those would be objective. I find it deeply disturbing (and deeply suspicious) that people in the industry aren't willing to undertake such objective tests.
Another hobby of mine is photography (I'm seriously untalented as a photographer!) and that is another area where a natural phenomenum (light as opposed to sound) is transferred through a piece of electronics back into the natural phenomenum again. There is also quite a large element of subjectivity in photography. However the reviews in the photography magazines are much more objective. Here is a link to a review of a lens (one I happen to own) on ephotozine which is perhaps the leading UK website:
The difference between this thorough review and the type of thing you get in a lot of the hifi industry as quite telling in my opinion.
You are not alone!
