I just read the article and I'll give my 2 cents.
The Cable Lie. Totally agree with.
The Vacuum Tube Lie. This one is hard to really prove since you just can't go out and buy a tube receiver anymore for the normal price of a solid state. However what I can go on his how people who swear by tube always describe the sound the exact same way. Soft, smooth and warm. While I haven't heard a tube amp next to a transistor amp, I can't say for sure, but I'm inclined to agree with the author because tubes are not as quick as on the switch as transistors are therefore I can see them yielding a softer, warmer and less accurate sound. I don't believe that you need two systems to accurately reproduce HT and music. The tube sound would naturally not be good for HT. So why would it be good for music? It sounds to me that tubes cover up harsh highs and midrange with their inability to react as fast as solid state. In the end the harsh music sounds better, but good recordings sound muffled.
The AntiDigital Lie. Might as well face it. Even if it does sound better in some respects, the record is destroyed by the needle a little more every single time it is played which slowly kill it's upper frequency response. Even the cleanest record pops. Oh, and they don't make mainstream records anymore. I've never done a comparison between the two with the same recordings because most of the stuff I listen to never came out on LP. Plus recording quality back in LP days was not as good as todays even though a lot of todays music sucks. Nobody can actually prove that vinyl sounds better than CD because most people don't have a record player anymore. I personally seriously doubt that vinyl can out perform a CD with an exact same recording.
ABX listening Tests. I totally agree with the author.
Negative Feedback. I totally agree with the author.
Burn In Lie. I totally agree with the author.
The Biwire Lie. I totally agree with the author.
Ok to cut it short, I totally agree with the rest of the article. It was very well written. It should help people make much wiser decisions on what to buy and do to make a substantial audio difference instead of piddling around with overpriced garbage that makes no difference other than in the weight of your wallet and buying extra speaker wire to hook your speakers up twice. Not to mention to help stop the bickering about a dead technology that is seen as great simply because it is dead.
It's better and cheaper to spend money on room treatments and speakers. Those two alone will drastically improve sound for much less than all the little expensive audiophool tweaks that have no logic to them whatsoever.
Your system can shine no matter what it's made of.......except if it's Bose.
