Default Describing what you hear

I recently build 4 amplifiers and realised that I could not describe the differances between them in a manner that others can understand/relate. Although I can clearly distinguesh deffinate differances, I could not "name" them. So I searched and found this:

http://www.stereophile.com/showarchives.cgi?50:0

Maybe this will also help others with the same problem.
Any comments or more detail on description of terms are welcome.

I got the problem. Still. I didn't follow your link, but I think I have ever read such literature. There's an even better approach. There's a CD out there to demo these audiophile jargons with examples in real music. With example, you won't miss it, will you?

That will be much easier to have this CD then to listen to your own music and try to describe it by means of what you think you understand by the specific terms. Where can 1 get such a CD?

I'm so sorry that I cannot help with this. Here in a local music CD shop I can find such CD such as for testing audio equipments. I hope somebody else can help you if you wanted to buy online. Those CDs are popular among audiophiles.
