I am a little slow some times. You should copy and paste into your own thread so it doesn't come up under my name.

If you want to train your ear. Go buy yourself two 2nd hand Trace Eliot Bass amps and I will tell you what to do with them.
It is gonna set you back around $2000 but you can always sell them at about the same price, so no loss really.
If you are interested in doing that I will tell which model etc.
Prety much what I was going to say but much better.

Pity we limit this to how bass sounds like but we got to start samwhere.

So get Trace eliot and then get Mesa bogie.
To me Bass Eliot sound better but we al go different taste

Or go and listen to loads of Live stuff with or witout amps.

Can your fifi amp sound as good as grand piano?
How would you know if you never heard grand piano?
and how Church organ sound like if you never heard church organ?
And why a fender sound like Fender and not like Gibson and not like Richenbeaker
They are all tuned to (or shuld be) to make same note at same frequency but sound different because of different armonics (diffrent wood difrent glue different strings......) which one you like.
Would you drink Earl gray in the morning?
There is time and place and sound for any of those as there are different vines or teas
But this is just man made stuff so you can always go to forest and listen to birds or beach and listen to waves. (is free by the way)
can your Fifi stuff make proper hand clapping sounds or proper laugter?

We got built in software which has been trough thousands of years of evolution that can recognise natural sounds If you never been to forest or to beach is going to take same waking up but it will.
if you stuck in city sound made by other humans may already be in you data base.

And how does hand clapping sound in your room and can you find room where hand clapping sound better.

Can you fifi sound take you close to reproducing it
So you want Fifi Amp and you mention F5
Look at F5 circuit 2 Jfets 2 mosfets end off. ammazing!
build that and then go balanced.
You can already play with armonic content whit F5 balanced let you play a bit more.
So F5 take you prety close to the real thing
But how much crap are your speakers putting in the mix?
So go and listen to different speakers.

And what about source
wanna start argument about analog or digital?

Since this is a nice place for Off topic...

I was playing with some apps on my samsung smartphone, downloaded an app that traks the position of the ISS. So about 45 mins ago, I was able to see it as a bright dot flying overhead in the night, clear sky... (no moon to spoil it yet). Nice.
I must have looked like a lunatic to my neighbors, most of them enjoying the evening, while I was looking up to the sky with my eyes (and perhaps mouth) open wide...
