His jaw dropped, too. Not to mention that "the difference between [the 96kHz/24-bit The Koln Concert and the MQA file] was so stark, and so different from that of any listening comparisons I've heard previously, that it requires a new vocabulary to describe."
I find that hard to fathom. Charles and Isaak seem to be getting by with existing vocabulary.
I'm a little disappointed with the "reviewer".
Perhaps you are referring to this buffoon?
How anybody can take this nonsense seriously is beyond me, but it is good for a laugh.
Interesting how he concludes with:
"I believe that MQA will usher in a new era in sound quality..."
Stunningly similar to Mr. Atkinson who said
"In almost 40 years of attending audio press events, only rarely have I come away feeling that I was present at the birth of a new world."
And by the way, when Mr. Atkinson bends down to find the socks that were blown off in the demo, as reports, he can help pick up Mr. Harley's jaw.
Let's not forget JVS,
"I literally laughed at the difference when the MQA version began. Not only did it feel as though a veil had been lifted, with far more color to the sound, but instruments also possessed more body."
Veils are lifted, jaws are dropped, socks are blown off, etc. The usual suspects strike again!
Are readers so stupid that they keep falling for this regurgitated bullshit, review after review, year after year?
I'm just so tired of reading this garbage that it's beginning to drive me to violence. How about strangling one of them with his veil, breaking his dropping jaw, then shoving his socks up his ass?
I was in a good mood this morning until this topic came up ;-)
woah. As much as I think the self indulgent drivel spewed out by the self appointed golden ears is comical, no violence neccesary. Readers simply quetioning their credibility is sufficient!
Perhaps a gentle appeal to JA to make liberal use of the editing pen, so no more jaws dropped or socks blown off, terms more reminiscent of the comics than a magazine intended to be taken seriously.
Somewhat tangentially, I wonder if JA realizes that "[knocked my|blew my]socks off" sounds silly? Stereophile writers use that phrase a _lot_. Maybe he'd see it if he substituted "[knocked my|blew my]pants off".
