Brolic,

That row of Triads looks ominous. The theater is coming together bit by bit. Will the forum be able to contain the awesomeness when it's complete? Stay tuned. . .

Yes. I think I read that somewhere. The Wolfson has a bit of noise in it, though I don't hear anything odd when I'm using my 09.

Even though I don't need a new player, I could see getting one of...

If you're only four years from retiring, then how the money is spent is even more important. I'd imagine you want to be sure of what you buy and place into the system (and the home for that matter)....

That last line you quoted was meant to be rhetorical, for sure. Hope it was understood that way.

I'd say published reviews of this type are always sighted, as you put it. But that does not prove...

It occurs to me that, from a techical viewpoint, I didn't answer the question of whether I am more objectivist or subjectivist. I voted "subjectivist" in the poll, based upon the position I outlined...

Slap a label on someone, then attack the label (and sometimes the person as well). Unfortunately, that is how it goes frequently.

My observation has been that many threads of this type don't take...

That post quote says essentially that speaker break-in should be done, just that it should be done by the dealer before the consumer gets his/her hands on them. Or have I not understood it properly?

Ok. While I'm not sure it's truly on-topic relative to the OP, I did, as mentioned in post #404 (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=404) , go dig out the manual for my...

I can believe the drivers need to loosen up; not sure about the continued improvements part. I might go back and re-read the manual for my Mirage M-3si speakers. I'm curious now.

As for breaking...

Maybe that's what it was. It's an apt description. The VPI room took requests also. But that was vinyl, of course.

Audio is an interest, not a hobby, for me. I went to the show for the experience, and let what I heard determine my assessments. Like you, I think the music, not the equipment, is what it's about....

Actually, she'd been there on a previous day and made the same request. Twenty-something, I'd guess.

As for the stereotyping, I wouldn't disagree with you. Stereotypes persist because there are...

You're welcome. By the way, I did exchange the Yes LP on Sunday for something else, a jazz set called All Night Long, with Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Kenny Burrell and others. Haven't played it yet.

There were several rooms using turntables. I saw them. Vinyl is still around, though many rooms indeed used laptops and DACs, whether for convenience or other reasons.
