    Paul says you must lift speaker cables of the floor for better sound quality...

    Are they professionals or are they simply successful in the industry? Beats by Dre made a ton of money. Has Paul displayed professional competency or is he just making money? Idiots can make a lot of money too, especially if they're selling to other idiots. True believers who huff their own BS...

    Speaker recommendation in view of brand's cost cutting

    Perhaps engineering departments have determined that it's a waste of money to build heavy, braced and damped cabinets with high quality crossovers. If the performance is there and the cut corners are inaudible, they're delivering a superior product at a lower price.

    Paul says you must lift speaker cables of the floor for better sound quality...

    Someone being wrong does not make them a liar. It's fairly simple. There have been many lies propagated throughout history and at the time these lies were widely accepted as truth by the uninformed. The unwashed masses are not liars for spreading what they were deceived by. They were simply...

    I genuinely want to hear more about the cable girth to pedophilia correlation.

    This is the same guy who says SINAD doesn't matter. I wonder what prompted him to say that.

    Why expensive integrated amplifiers better than Topping...?

    Forget about sourcing steel from China. You need someone in China to validate what you're getting before it's ever on a boat. This behavior is endemic to the market. And hope they're not paid off.

    Why expensive integrated amplifiers better than Topping...?

    I'll just say auto parts manufacturing. Spec a part and six months to a year later the materials will be adulterated and the parts are not built to spec, usually by fractions of millimeters. Over and over again. There are a handful of Chinese suppliers who will not do this and they are top...

    Nope not gonna dox myself. This is literally common knowledge. You don't have to take my word for it. There are many others who can confirm it.

    Why expensive integrated amplifiers better than Topping...?

    It's well known that if you call out a supplier for not meeting specifications that you will be blackballed by the Chinese market. This has been going on for decades.

    Why expensive integrated amplifiers better than Topping...?

    There are a few firms in China that will consistently deliver what you ordered. And they are considered the top tier. The rest will find a way to turn a penny into a nickel. If you don't know this, you're talking out of your ass and have no experience with Chinese suppliers.

    Why expensive integrated amplifiers better than Topping...?

    But they're not designed in China and are made to the specifications of the foreign designers (ostensibly). Many European and American brands have fallen into disrepute because they outsourced manufacturing to China. You're obviously not familiar with the pitfalls of sourcing from China. Just as...

    If provenance doesn't matter, why are Italian brands consistently at the bleeding edge of speaker manufacturing?

    Why expensive integrated amplifiers better than Topping...?

    Provenance matters. The Japanese have an excellent track record. The Chinese do not and this has not changed even in the current year. The brands that sent their manufacturing to China (to cut costs) are now losing their reputation as quality brands and they are suffering the consequences...
