you mean something other than it is 'berry good for them''?
I see parallels with quantum or relativity theory, every year these scientists get hundreds of letters from 'educated laymen' which show/prove/assert that einstein got it wrong and relativity is incorrect.
For sure, both these theories completely violate 'common sense and experience', but honestly, who am I to have the depth of knowledge and understanding to disprove it?? (
But, if you are an audiophile, then it is de rigour to think you know more than science, have the depth and breadth of knowledge to show all the experiments ever carried out contain a fatal flaw that hint to theories not even begun to be conceived of by the people in the field.
I mean, the arrogance quite frankly is breathtaking!
All because 'I hear it, and I (and I alone) cannot be fooled by my own biases, I am completely aware of every unconscious bias I have and account for them'.
In other words, all because 'I am an audiophile'.
Why NOT do some testing with a degree of rigour?? You WILL learn tons! You may learn you are completely correct and that science DOES have more to learn, you can contribute to the knowledge base of humanity.
Or you may be surprised to find out how powerful our biases really are.
Either way, is not life most fun when we are learning?? I don't understand the 'anti find out' viewpoint.
