I’d appreciate it if you’d cease your denigration of the Librarian profession. A real Librarian is someone who has received a specific masters level education beyond the baccalaureate.
A competent librarian would never refer to an article without providing the article itself, or if there were copyright issues, the relevant subset under the ‘fair use’ provisos of national and international copyright laws.
You might feel free to take potshots at someone with this patently unfair characterization, but it only reflects your own lack of understanding. Certainly, like many other professions, the Librarian profession attracts their fair share of eccentrics, and I’m sorry if someone you assumed was a librarian scarred your youthful psyche…..
My wife is a research librarian and is a consummate professional.

It is i confess, somewhat gratifying to see traderbam's sublime ignorance acknowledged by other members..

This, it would appear, is your lot....

Mikek,

You continue to misconstrue what people wish to communicate to others. What I chastised Traderbam for was, when all is said and done, innocuous. He conveyed a stereotype that causes misperception, and is offensive (mildly) to few. Unfortunately, it is ingrained into Western culture, and is probably accepted by most of us. The fact that you would take such a mild rebuke, one that was only a correction of a commonly held perception, and use it to denigrate another's character is reprehensible.

Regardless of your obvious intellect, it is your mean spirited, massive bandwidth that continues to annoy me, and I assume, so many others. If you’ve nothing to learn here, why bother? One has only to compare your posts to AKSA’s to define, from context, the word ‘gentleman’.

The reason I addressed Traderbam was simply that in doing so, I saw the hope of correcting an unfair stereotype, a simple communication to a rational person. To engage with you, will only evoke that saw –

“Never wrestle with a pig,
You just get filthy,
And the pig enjoys it”

If your interpersonal skills are the result of Asperger’s Syndrome, please accept my apologies.

Default I refer the gentleman to my earlier question

Mike,

Since you won't answer (2) for whatever reason, here's (1) again, which you have so neatly sidestepped (again).

1. Why bother to do something if you can't hear the improvement?

Quote:
have a firms product unfairly exposed to subjectivist and perforce, jaundiced and manifestly bogus 'scrutiny' thus???Never
You see even your reason for not telling doesn't make sense.

Commercial secrecy, NDA's with the manufacturer would make sense, but 'bogus scrutiny', 'subjective perforce'?

Mike this product, if it exists and is aimed at the HiFi market that I'm a customer of competes with other products in competitive demonstration. I audition any product the same, with open mind and ears, as will any other potential customer.

Anyone else smell a rat here?

Now answer the bloody question, or can't you find a reference work to call upon for a quote?

Andy.

Equally it would seem some people have the ability to absorb large amounts of theoretical knowledge, but by their actions and contributions here demonstrate a total abscence of the real world function and behaviour of a circuit.

Your wonderful amp is so good you could not hear the so-called improvement brought about by your preached topology - I wonder why

Andy.

Why bother to improve on anything at all.......after all converting from single pole compensation to double pole, (one resistor+one extra cap.!!), for an order of magnitude reduction in THD at 20kHz...must cost £1 billion...right?

I don't smell anything. It's all empty words. I haven't a clue what Mike is after? Does he know?

Mike,

Are you totally incapable of answering a direct and simple question?

What point are you trying to make re: listening tests?

There's 92 pages of crap there, and I'm buggered if I'm going to re-read it again!

Type a reply with some bloody substance for a change and tell us WTF you are on about

Andy.
