"compared". A term easily in the AVS avr/pre/pro forum's top 5 most cringe-worthy.
If I could make one single change to AVS it would be that these "comparisons" were minimized- like spoilers in a movie review- and you'd have to go out of your way to click on them and read them.
I am so close to gathering up a Denon 4520, Denon 4311, Marantz 8801, and Onkyo 3010 and having a series of level-matched ABXs just to put an end to this nonsense for anyone with an open mind. I'd like to say it's just me, but after reading- literally- hundreds of people all-but begging for them to stop, I know I'm far from alone. Science on a science forum, anyone?
Yes, I realize there are a number on a SCIENCE forum that will refute good SCIENCE to the nth, but at least we'd save a few with a properly conducted listening exercise. Be a great learning experience, to boot.
now people are swearing they are hearing "better localization" due to reductions in jitter? But if you told them the "other" unit had less jitter/"better" components, then they'd hear it on that unit.
this is insane.
