Not all audiophiles are like that. There's a way to spot those you are thinking about. They typically say things like "try them yourself", "how do you know if you haven't used them?" about audio cables.

There are several problems with people who try those ploys. They create situations where great time and inconvenience would be required to fulfill their demands, and they are denying that all audio gear operates in accordance with a fairly short list of physical laws.

In essence they are saying "You don't know that putting a 1893 Denver Mint quarter on the corner of a Watchmajebus model 45,876 loudspeaker doesn't lift three veils from the sound of this rare recording of which only 1 copy is known to exist because you haven't tried it."

On-topic: Don't forget the request to prove by measurements since we say measurements matter on AVS. Too bad we all don't have a spare few hundred k$ around to buy the test equipment and have to depend on klutzs like JA and the AES...

I don't think so. A few $100 invested in a computer-based measuring setup can come amazingly close to putting you into JA's shoes. The tough part is not getting the toys but learning how to use them. There appears to be a lot of good free consulting on tap around here.

It was impossible to top. Take it as a compliment.
