Default Doom and gloom

Crikey Morse,

don't restrain yourself - let's hear what you really think! I'm with you all the way on this, especially when it comes to picture quality. As an ex-Broadcast engineer, I know all the limitations of video, and 35mm film wipes the floor with it. As for 65mm film (the master for 70mm), it's wonderful stuff but expensive. (Bean-counters again.)

The sad fact is that Joe and Josephine Public don't actually give a stuff about quality, and they're going to get what they're told they want. The world is going to be full of; plastic burgers, chemical beer, compressed audio and video and genetically modified food. Fortunately, the human race is making such a mess of the world that it will soon be unviable. Sad, isn't it?
The loudspeaker: The only commercial Hi-Fi item where a disproportionate part of the budget isn't spent on the box. And the one where it would make a difference...

Hi EC8010;

Thanks for the words of wisdom. Yep, that's the way that the world works....and we're all just lucky to still be able to build our own things to suit our taste (valve hifi's, efficient speakers, real wood furniture, etc).

Sorry about the length of that rant! I'll blame part of it on being a fast touch typist!

Have a great one!

Default "Quality"..

Sounds like many of you have not heard that the electronics "industry", at least TV companies changed the definition of "Quality".
I was at a meeting of some people from one of our tv companies, mid 80s I believe, and they catagorically stated that the definition of "Quality" has been changed by the industry.

Paraphrasing, Quality used to mean long, useful life with minimal breakdowns. Now
quality means nothing more than the number of conviences, extras, features, that a product has. It has Nothing to do with longlife, problem free, anymore.

I couldn't believe it when I heard it, but then again, I had some of that junk that was breaking down all the time.

I will tell you I am not deviating from what was said.

Of course the public wasn't informed of this change in definition.
