    The frailty of Sighted Listening Tests

    And the great thing is that @amirm gathers and posts the data. That's what elevates this site to science. That and some pretty sound measurement techniques.

    The frailty of Sighted Listening Tests

    My experience of listening is that listening critically is difficult. All sorts claim to be able to hear this or that among audio components, like how wires or wooden blocks or expensive capacitors lift veils. There's a ton of bullshit. People can hear things. The drum mic is clipping. The...

    Salk WoW1 Bookshelf Speaker Review

    Still interested in getting other salk speakers sent in for testing. Right now, the single data point is mediocre soundpproduction and high price with a pretty box. Since @jsalk is here, why not? Free testing! I'd love to see his lauded speakers perform well. You can even use the results to...

    Marantz AV7705 Home Theater Processor Review

    The denon are cheaper and have better DAC output plus an amp. They're better in, as far as I can tell, every single way.

    What happened to Innerfidelity? (automatically diverts to stereophile)

    Motor Trend was never much to begin with. Even though they hired some great journalists, they got rid of them too. Meanwhile, Johnny Lieberman stays on. I hated his writing at autoblog and everything he's done since. Car and Driver and road and track are still decent. They laid off many of their...

    New JBL 4349 Speakers

    There is a lot of room for unconscious bias in the subjective part of the reviews. Iddon't put much stock in them. I don't see any conscious bias at all. Mistakes? You've made a few and are eager to correct them and learn. Props to you. This place is the best.

    8K vs 4K for a large computer monitor?

    It's a learning curve. I've settled on about six browser/app/folder windows. I think I will move up to 9. Then I will place the laptop on the side shelf or a side table. The current video card does hdr at 30hz and normal color at 60hz. I'll either have to replace the laptop or get a video card...

    Denon X3700H or Marantz SR6015?

    I thought Marantz was more likely to have poor sound quality.

    8K vs 4K for a large computer monitor?

    I usually use two screens at home and three at work. One 34 wouldn't be enough for me. Since Zoom lets me share just a window, not a whole screen, I think one huge screen might work. Biggest downside is lack of touchscreen. Here's something cool...

    I already have epic posture problems. Looking up seems to reduce it.

    8K vs 4K for a large computer monitor?

    The LG CX is supposed to come Wednesday. Once it's set up, I'll let you know how it feels. Costco has a 90 day return police and something like 5 years of warranty included. Since I'll use this 6-12+ hours a day, 7 days a week, that might be good. Now I also wait for a good UST projector to...

    8K vs 4K for a large computer monitor?

    My laptop has an OLED display. I've had no burn in that I've noticed. There's a dell driver that turns a lot of the static elements black or close to black. Work is Word, Zoom, Gmail, spreadsheets, and web. I rarely do anything with graphics, and none of it matters with color accuracy...

    Marantz AV7705 Home Theater Processor Review

    I have read somewhere that the new consoles, despite not having the same horsepower, will have effectively similar capabilities to PCs. Of course having a keyboard and mouse is vital.

    8K vs 4K for a large computer monitor?

    I just ordered the LG CX 48" display to use as a computer monitor. It's 4K and OLED with 120Hz and HDR, so it's pretty hot stuff. I love the black blacks and often view in a dim or dark room. Mainly it will be a work monitor. With it pushed back as far as possible, I will get a about 38"...

    Marantz AV7705 Home Theater Processor Review

    I just bought a 4k 48" OLED for my desktop monitor. I'd have to get a new desk to go 8k since the smallest is 55" and that's just too big for my setup. With 4k close, I can use 100% scaling. With 8k, I'd have to use 200% for things to be usable, which would largely defeat the purpose of the...
