Lol.......you act like us OCD bassheads are the norm, we are not. Right or wrong, the reality is more people will relate to a mainstream reviewers opinion vs ours because most people don't take this particular aspect to the degree we do. Expecting every reviewer and viewer for that matter to look at bass like we do is extremely unrealistic. These reviewers don't look at graphs, and most of them don't have single digit capability sub systems, so they judge the bass totally subjectively which means there are going to be times when those opinions don't actually match up with the objective data. Would I love to see more of these reviewers consider the objective data? Yes, but sitting here doing what you are doing to Ralph in particular is again flat out cheap. Why don't you go at least express your opinion in his thread like I have about my disappointment with the bass in this mix, or The Hobbit, Avengers, etc...........? Sitting here preaching to the choir will do no good, and continually putting down a very well respected member of this forum who provides a very valuable service to the vast majority of members here in at least one way or another (just because you cant relate to Ralph on bass in particular, certainly you could find some other area of his reviews to hold value? ) is flat out low class Nfraso.
Let's not also forget just how many things there are to judge and look at in a review from ALL the various aspects of not only AQ, but PQ, the film itself, extras, etc.............is it really some great mystery to you in light of ALL this that a reviewers subjective opinion on one particular aspect of just one area of sound (bass) might not always line up with the objective data?
