Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Then... Wassup ....!!

It's somewhat the nature of these discussions. How does one really argue for or against a subjective opinion?

If I say XYZ is the best sound I have heard it is somewaht similar to tje essays I wrote in university. You state an opinion on a topic and it is not accepted unless you can bring in evidence to support your case. Usually, that comes from external, authority, statistics, primary sources, secondary sources.

So that is largely all that can be done on audio. No one can replace another person's primary experience. The only thing that can ve done is to say well XYZ is ecellent because of: appeal to authorities, statistical results, etc etc.

So when XYZ has say 15 authorities, and secondary and tertiary evidence that make a very strong case while ABC has no authorities or evidence to suggest it is a strong product then this is really all we have in audio discourse.

It's an experiential thing which words can't replace. You can read about swimming in the ocean all you want but actually doing it is something entirely different.
