    Master Thread: Are measurements Everything or Nothing?

    I think the main problem is the preference score. I feel that it would be more useful to have a reporting system which quantifies various characteristics that reviewers normally talk about and that people's tastes in audio vary along, like brightness, warmth, forewardness, detail reproduction...

    curious to see amir rate the fosi bl20c

    sorry, not trying to mislead anyone. that's just what the specs say. no idea how to verify. I'm eager to know the real rating though, or how inaccurate that is.

    Poll for Topping PA5 owners only please.

    You can postulate whatever you like. All I'm doing is postulating. I think it's important to introduce this possibility. Also, I've noticed there are far more angry audio snobs here than angry budgetphiles. Probably because the latter is more of a rational preference, while the former is an...

    curious to see amir rate the fosi bl20c

    I have this amp and while I'm not an audiophile, it seems to perform really well for the price. 160wx2. I tried another fosi amp and it was terrible, but I haven't noticed anything I can criticize about this one, so I'm curious to see how my subjective experience aligns with objective measurements.

    Why expensive integrated amplifiers better than Topping...?

    If a product has serious reliability issues, that will usually manifest in amazon reviews as a 1-star rating proportion of greater than 6%. however, if the product is dying after like 2 years that doesn't seem to show up in amazon ratings. I've only seen reviews that refer to something dying up...

    Master "deals" (massdrop, ebay, Amazon, etc.) Thread on Audio Product Sales

    i wonder if it was a pricing bug from their site redesign or they are planning the sale but started it prematurely. either way, now i have 4 sets of speakers i bought on sale, which has complicated my decision process. jbl 530 ($240), qa 3020 ($230), jamo s803 (5-speaker hcs $180), and now jbl...

    JBL Studio 530 Speaker Review

    One thing about these speakers is that the low extension is great but I can't hear it from in front of the speaker. Only from the side or behind it. Tried moving them closer or further from the wall. I have them about 10 inches from the ground. And they are against an intermediate wall, i.e. a...
