Default Golden Ears - both a blessing and a curse

Golden Ears - both a blessing and a curse:
A blessing because it is easy to listen to differences and to setup and tweak a audio setup to perfection, and specially when all other noises than the the intended audio have been eliminated.
A curse because sound emitting from SSD drives, RAM modules, transformers, power supplies light bulbes etc., are disturbing, even the pickup needle when playing LPs are emitting sound that are easily heard even playing at 100dB SPL peaks.

Dangerous thing to do, Ray, reviving this thread ...

I believe just about everyone has Golden Ears, it's really about the type of focus being used at the time of "trying to hear something ..." - it's the listening when not 'listening' that counts ...

My Dad was tone deaf - I couldn't convince him that my stereo was better than his £50 cheapie.

I think if you've got golden ears then enjoy your music, if not then still enjoy your music.
