Or, that snake oil salesman said it too,

You can substantially improve your credibility by providing specifics and telling us where that "straightforward physics" and "most of this stuff" are.

Otherwise, you have told us exactly nill.

Isn't it nice that you tell us enough?

I have tried but failed more than miserably so I am not going there anytime soon.

BTW, if you bring your resistors to that challenge, you may make a buck or two. But I don't think you are interested in making money, right?

I would probably try it, but I'm not permitted to enter USA for another 3 years, so don't ask me to do that again.

All this reminds me of something I once heard.

Question: 'Is is wise to be foolish, or foolish to be wise?'

Answer from Guruaraj Ananda Yogi (who usually spent 10-15 minutes answering questions from the floor): 'Both, next question.'

I believe that all different components cause different sounds.
I believe that the amplitudes of differences are normally narrow.
If I try 10 different brand components and ask my wife,
her more than 9 answers are "it sounds the same."
Sometimes she makes up my happiness, answering "it seems the sound..."
I believe that my habitual change of components is mainly to confirm that I am a DIYer.

Yes you are absolutely right and you continue your quest to save us all. Maybe you can write letters to evil audio magazines (who make money) as well. I have a couple of thousand post of nil at this point, as well as several hundred links to even more nil and keep posting anyway out of shear spite. Why would I want or need credibility? I am not trying to sell you anything or convince you about anything. I have had enough of developing it while fixing screw ups by engineers who had some skills, but the same lack of ambition and over developed egos. The last one told people I was hard to work with after I dug his butt out of about a 50 million dollar hole he dug for the company. I did seem to develop some credibility after that but got laid off with hundreds of other telecom engineers though. I wonder if there should be entry for credibility on my resume? I want you to have the most mediocre audio system possible and get so bored here so you can go straighten out some group where your talents are appreciated. Tell us what it is when you find it, so we can enjoy the wisdom of your post. I know why I read and post on the DIYaudio forum. What I can't understand is why you are here........ Maybe you can start the "It Doesn't Matter Audio" forum, devoted to the leisurely pursuit of cheap and mediocre audio for the indifferent and uninformed consumer. I can even find you a couple of dozen members to start it with. I wish the greatest success in a promising new venture for which you will have the utmost credibility. Jocko and I used to say something that would a great opening caption for your new forum:

How many watts? How many lights? How many knobs? How many dollars?

Good luck and best wishes,

Fred

The definition of "Mid Fi" is that as the price goes up, so does the number of knobs, lights, and watts. The definition of "High End" is that as the price goes up, the number of knobs, lights, and watts goes down.

I'm not sure who's crazy here.
