Technical and scientific discussion of amps, cables and other topics.

RE: Searching for truth?


Not being technical nor having your lengthy experience, may I nevertheless suggest that this 'signal-to-noise ratio' business is a double-entry audio game in which the removal of particular sound corruption/ distortion only serves to reveal another previously hidden sound defect ad infinitum. The next defect may get smaller but the hearing adapts and becomes more acute:-) The only area where the cascading genius of noise appears to show some humility and limits is in the CD ripping process on which I spent a couple of years.

The truth? In my experience we spend much time tweaking our way to better signal-to-noise ratios and being dissatisfied because our ears and brains adapt and attune themselves faster that we can derive enduring satisfaction and gratitude. It's the human condition...
