Re: What Hi-Fi listening rooms

Judging by the threads we've had on here in the past (and i'm sure we will again), I think our views on the 'diversity and magnitude' of cables are certainly 'unpopular' with some Wink

I find breathing desirable (nay essential) when reading anything longer than "The Ladybird book of Stereo". (I have noticed Naim owners still mouth the words when reading that one.)

Now where did I hang my coat?

professorhat:Okay, wow, took enough to get a proper answer from you, thank you for eventually doing it!

Anytime!

I don't understand this statement

My bad - I meant to say that "using budget kit with reference kit has no real value".

As Andrew says, heard from who? How can I possibly expect to believe you if you have no credible source. Sorry, I need more than that, I'm not a News of the World reader so I tend to look for credibility and evidence rather than just believing what someone who just joined the forums "heard".

Obviously it may not be right for me to reveal the source, or in this case, sources, as I've heard that there's more than one report of this. I may be new on these forums, but I've been a member of the other forums for most of this present decade, so I'm fully aware of what some people demand

 EDITED BY MODS - BLATANT TROLLING

..

You seem to think I dislike anyone disagreeing with WHF's opinions. What I actually disagree with is people coming on this forum and making baseless comments and accusations.

If you're a regular to forums, you should be used to it!

You'll see it in a number of forum posts I've been involved in such as recent ones with people commenting on all Onkyo amps being faulty, in the past people attempting to spread the myths of Plasma televisions, others attempting to put people off trying out different cables for themselves. In all, I speak out against anyone making ridiculous claims they can't prove - in most cases, it's pretty obvious the person is just there to troll. In this case, I don't think you're actually trolling properly, but you are making very serious claims that you haven't proven. So the onus is on you really.

I'm not really trying to prove anything. This all blew up from me saying not understanding why a 5 star product can be replaced by something better and lose 2 stars! Everyone else has built it up! In fact, I didn't even start it, I just agreed (partly) with the OP! I was going to mention it myself, but someone beat me to it. I also stand up for what I disagree with, just as you do, so am I so wrong for saying so? It's just unfortunate that my first posting was linked with this.

Just outside the tent, I'd suggest.

No, it blew up when you made those accusations about WHF's listening rooms not being good enough to test equipment in - I think Dominic answered you query above very well on Page 5. It's always nice and convenient when you have reliable sources that can't be named - I didn't get to see the post before it was edited but I'm guessing it probably wasn't worth reading.

Anyway, I think everyone's probably had enough of this topic now (well, most people probably did 5 pages ago) so I think I'll leave it there - sorry everyone!

Re: What Hi-Fi listening rooms

And that seems a good note to lock this thread - happy for it to be here for people to read the debate, but as that debate isn't going anywhere productive, let's draw a line under this one.

Always happy, as ever, to discuss any element of our testing procedure in any future thread - sticking to the truth, not ill-informed conjecture.
