Her claims are in line with the "conventional" High End "wisdom" regarding FLAC. Once such things are "determined", it seems almost impossible to "undetermine" them.

An opinion shared by many many others. You think the humor in the film is adult and sophisticated?

No. Jar Jar is present in much more than 2% of the film. You think he's a mature,...

Once again, you appear to contradict yourself. I say the film is too juvenile, and you and other defenders respond with “but the movies were always meant for the kiddies”. Now you’re saying ”oh,...

A modern motion picture filled with dazzling sound and special effects is always going to appeal to kids more than older books, so I don’t know what point you’re trying to make here.

I purchased some replacement 400v capacitors (did not go through the trouble of testing them), and took the box to a friend of mine who's handy with a soldering iron. The phones are...

There are kids and there are kids. The original movies were aimed at 14 year olds. TPM was aimed more at 7 year olds. That’s a big difference. Also, I remember a discussion between Siskel and...

Actually, the movies (at least the first two) were aimed at adolescents, not "young children". It was only after so many people expressed their disappointment with TPM that Lucas came up with the...

Yeah, I'm sure the kids were extremely interested in the plotline about "trade disputes".


It's interesting to contrast the reaction of fans to TPM, over which Lucas had total control, to that of...

Oh, so you acknowledge that "expert opinion" must be measured against its congruence with the real world, and that the real world is the ultimate reference, not "expert opinion".

Actually, Arny's approach is quite sound. Unlike you, he doesn't assume that "expert opinion" is always in perfect agreement with the real world.

Ah, so they're working into a large space behind the screen. That's where I was confused. :)

I'm confused. The woofers don't appear to be in an IB configuration. What large space is the back wave working into?

Really? Is that why you keep making appeals to authority, along with demands that people show their credentials?

I also get a kick out of the Quantum Resonant Technology Qx4 ($2699.99), that's supposed to be a "scalar field generator". Golly gee, that technobabble sure sounds impressive.

For those who design things (audio is engineering) as well as buy them, they want to know what number(s) that corresponds to. But, of course, we never get a straight answer from Amir.

As to Mark Levinson, nothing you've said demonstrates they're not a High End audio marque. Lexicon was well known for selling a rebadged Oppo player for $3500.
