You seem rather difficult like geekhd. Are you two one and the same person? In any event, I'll try to be as elementary as possible. People base what they think is pretty or sounds good by their senses, i.e, eyes and ears. As far as sound, I can give you my subjective impression on how something sounds by describing what I hear. There is no way I can make you hear what I hear. I can only describe what I hear, let you hear the same, and see if you concur with me. Audio reviewers gain credibility by describing what they hear in particular equipment, and they articulate what they hear to readers. The reader may like what a review describes sonically, and if they like the description, they may go listen that equipment, or if they cannot listen, they may buy blindly based upon what they read, and if what they read is true, they will express it to others. Have you ever described a good looking woman who arrived to town to any of your friends and they either concur the woman looks good or the woman looks bad to them? Do you understand what I am trying to explain to you?
