RE: Why do we even care what he thinks?

Posted by ecl876 on March 11, 2023 at 11:57:08:

Have you watched his videos? He actually seems like a pretty nice guy who's trying to corner a part of audio market that others can't or won't. He's not bragging and I don't think he says these are the holy grail, only that they're the best he's ever heard.

The thing about his presentations that make me uncomfortable is that it's clear he doesn't know much about music. He uses the same sample recordings to test each speaker. Really, it doesn't seem he's that interested in the music, only how it sounds. The components are more important to him than the music itself. I can't help believe that this can only lead to frustration down the line. What do you do when you have the best speaker ever? Where is there to go from there? Boredom eventually sets in and all you have is a very expensive machine that happens to play music.
