Here comes the AVS "everything sounds the same" groupthink.
All the review websites should just shut down or endlessly talk about speaker correc......, Oops! I mean "room correction".
Regurgitating from 1990 magazine articles only the ideas and points they CHOOSE and ignoring the rest. Some even quote the owners manual or dealer in what is...is.
And an argument (with the usual putdowns and LINE-BY-LINE quotes) to negate ANY point or opinion they decide NEEDS to be squashed out before it can catch on.
They NEVER own a $199 Denon receiver connected to the speakers with coat hanger wire, however. Odd? I've read "you can't POSSIBLY tell the difference". (there was an article about the coat hanger) But the $$$ and over-priced (by their own admission) product THEY bought is JUST RIGHT.
Sad thing is, I agree with them MORE than I disagree. But the arrogant absolute with obvious "what THEY own" hypocrisy makes me push away from their self-concratulatory "you're all idiots unless you agree with me" attitude.
It's a BIG reason many people only come on this forum occasionally for help. Those couple dozen or so posters knock out hundreds.
And no, I'm NOT talking about HDMI cables.
And, of course, Bose products are the obvious exception to the above comments.
