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

You're rare but not alone

I've met up with a very few objectivists that changed their views when they finally allowed for possibilities. Mostly the "recruits" are skeptics with no scientific background, such as myself. Back when I first got involved with audio, I was told cables made large differences in sound and I walked away with Monster M1000i mk II interconnects and Monster speaker wire (forget the model) and I couldn't hear a dime's worth of difference, as I suspected I wouldn't.

As my listening skills improved, I learned what to listen for and could hear differences some of the time... and I should point out that I do NOT hear differences in all wires. Far from it. Nor all amps or anything else. Very little in this world is everything or nothing. That's the problem I have with Objectivists - they think in black and white and the world contains so many different colors. But I digress....

Anyway, it's doubtful that you'll ever gain new recruits by posting on the internet. They have to figure it out all by themselves. I was the same way. And hey, if they never figure it out, they're the ones missing out, not you. You can only take care of folks that want to take the steps to take care of themselves. To coin a phrase, you can lead a horse to water but you can't force his head into the pool. And if you do, he is more likely to drown than he is to drink.
