In Reply to: RE: "Two O'clock is the optimum position for any volume control when listening to music." posted by Timbo in Oz on October 01, 2016 at 22:48:06
Your system has the right amount of gain if you do most of your listening with the volume at the 2 o'clock position.
Dark energy? Ridiculous!
We live in an electric universe.
If it were true why would anyone bother with a stepped VC using many high quality metal film, holco or foil R's?
Unless of course one listens only / mostly to similarly compressed popular genre recordings. Which I rarely do.
I used to record (and edit / prepare) live classical / acoustic concerts, for a local community FM station, and will return to that when I am well again. And, I have always preferred simple coincident or near coincident mike techniques.
My CD player is the loudest source, followed by the Nakamichi BX300, the tuner and the turntable.
And, within that - bought recordings, and live concerts from FM, vary in average loudness, by 6db and more.
