>>.you will see this subject has been raised and shot down numerous times before.
Critical listening is about training to see, if you will, the various trees in the forest.
Not just your ability to see the top of the forest.
Whatever hearing acuity curve you have is identical for listening to live music and for listening to recorded music at home.<<
So, a reviewer who can't hear much above 10,000 Hz is perfectly qualified to make sage pronouncements about the top octave performance of a given speaker / amplifier / DAC /phono setup?
THat's not rational.
... what difference does THAT make to you?
'Course that's way better than I can do at 87, but then I couldn't care less what a reviewer's hearing is, since the midrange is pretty much all that matters, as you'll find out when you mature :-)
Most, if not all, reviewers I respect can hear anything I need to hear. Training does the rest.
... in the Boxster.
I did find it. Thanks for caring.
I'd love to watch any 87 year old climb into and out of a Boxster, never mind driving it.
Sounds kinda boring to me
Haven't had a car since I moved to NYC in '71, but love the looks of that Porsche model. Presume the driving feel of it is great. Hope I'm as young at heart as you are if I make it to 87!
