No one would agree with such conclusion because "what sounds best" is not defined in your statement.

Wavebourn, 'what sounds best', is what audiophiles are hunting for.
If they haven't got it they swap equipment to get it.

Hmmm.... There are some people who knows what sounds best, they agree among each other, and they are hunting for?
So, you were kidding in the previous post about no one can agree what sounds best?

c) However, I'm pretty sure you already read my friendly note: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...51#post1853951 Your feedback, even in these particular circumstances, is appreciated. I'll see what I can do about, unfortunately I don't have a Mac to test with.
I visited your site using Google Chrome and the version of Safari on my Nokia e90. I was sidetracked by the .com version on the phone but I got there. There may be something about Safari that isn't working with your site correctly, except on a PC Safari works OK. Software isn't any more consistent than audiofools opinions. . .

Do you see the difference?

I think his latest calling people 'ignorant dorks' led to his current bin-time.

Was it the "ignorant" part or the "dorks" part? Or perhaps it is the combination of the two? Would "dork ignoramuses" be better?

So hard to know...

Oh, maybe "geeks with insufficient knowledge"? Is that preferable?



I suspect that Mr. Curl will return... I hope he is monitoring his own blood pressure in the meantime. I am monitoring mine. Actually, I am.

In my next project I will buy only parts with that elusive "f" suffix to use - they work so much better! Thanks for the idea!!

I see JC is taking a break in a more chummy atmosphere. Audio is not the only discipline where I have observed the well experienced but less credentialed individuals develop huge chips on their shoulders. I see we are back to a broad engineering education with a solid grounding in fundamentals being a handicap in audio design. So be it, though I wish folks could be a little less acrimonious and more diplomatic at times. Not to say I have not slipped up now and then.

Like Ftoroplast capacitors, FETs, Film resistors, Film capacitors, what else is allowed?

Foil Teflon is the best: two "f"!

Nah! he was just Binned, ie put in the bin for a week to relax and rest his lood pressure. The bin has comfy chairs, and a delish menu served by attractive server-types. He should be out this friday

There have been some musings by some about hopw they could express themselves more politely, and stop looking for things to disagree with vehemently. I like having John around, and we should all consider how we might miss a thread such as this, even if we might roll our eyes every now and again.. so I request that people follow up on their observations and make an effort (is it really an effort? ) to be more congenial

Yep, it was a typo, my bad.

I've spent myself a weekend in a comfy chair admiring the landscape, until you guys decided I don't really deserve a rest and threw me back in the lions dungeon.
