Default Things you hate

Please share the things (audio related) that you see out in the world that you can't stand, or things that you used to do, but now you hate to do.


Something that I used to do was listen to music with the bass turned up all the way, and the treble turned down. I couldn't really hear the music, so I had to turn it up. That way, I got tons of bass. Now I can't stand it.

Another thing I hate is when people listen to music in their car with the stock head unit turned up all the way. The only thing they get is distortion instead of music. I have no idea how people can listen to that.

...and people that cough at concerts If you are sick stay at home!

Other thing that I hate is when you plan a series of mods to your gear and you have to wait for burn-in time to pass

Ah! and I hate the present ringing at my DAC

Very cool this cathartic thread
I never went to a group therapy

I hope all of you feel better after throwing it away!
I do.

regards

Then I hate being ill just when a great concert is happening.

I saw Led Zeppelin when I had the 'flu. I couldn't appreciate it fully, but I wasn't going to miss it.

People who wave their hands in front of me whilst at a concert. People who feel obliged to stand for every song.

Knock of the BS, sit down and shut up.

I feel better.

One more thing. People who drive slow in the left lane. It's not your lane, it's not my lane, it's the FAST LANE. Get it?

That's good, sometimes a rant is for the best.

Hum....

1. People who think wire sounds different. Prove it all-darned-ready! Oops...you can't. Nevermind.
2. People who think resistors have a sound.
2a. People who think resistors sound different backwards.
2b. People who think resistors sound best using two antiparallel.
3. People who think capacitors have a sound. (Face it, given a good tolerance and low ESR and ESL, it ain't gonna happen.)
3a. People who think capacitors have different distortion values as coupling caps.
4. Other ignorance in general. Stupidity I don't mind, because that can be cured by learning. True ignorance, the will to refuse any and all fact, is utterly dispicable.

Hm, I should've put #4 first... the others really are just corollaries of it.
