Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
@8th_note I'm in a sort of no-man's land regarding this hobby. I'm a scientist by training and I believe in testing methodology that removes bias to the greatest possible extent. I have been able to internalize quite a bit of cognitive dissonan... 
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
Interesting exchange, mostly. Bashing ASR seems like a ridiculous thing to do. Nice to see Erik taking a swing at some rational elements in play and Amir for correcting what he considers false or inaccurate claims. There are many things about mea... 
Is positive reinforcement why things are sounding better?
Confirmation biases has nothing to do with "lying to ourself" in particular or specifically Yes, it does, obviously.  
Thin Line Between Critique and Courtrooms: A Dialogue on the Recent Audiophile Drama
There seems to be comity between the parties. There's back and forth after this pinned posting, so I don't really know where things stand, now. But this seems to be pull-back from litigation. For more, see this discussion: Pinned by Youthman ... 
Is positive reinforcement why things are sounding better?
confirmation bias does not last very long.  over the longer run is where you tell if an upgrade really is an upgrade. Well said. I tried to lie to myself about Be tweeters until I just...couldn't...take it. Those of us who practice this hobby... 
Is positive reinforcement why things are sounding better?
If your question is an earnest one, +1 @benanders  If you're just looking for moral support, +1 @jeffseight   
Your thoughts on best audiophile speakers in $10,000 neighborhood?
There are so many speakers out there. A couple questions in my mind include: (a) Do you want speakers you can move around from time to time without hiring someone? This is an important question to me, because I like to try out positioning things ... 
Seek advice on forums but always listen to your own ears!
You can only trust your ears if you have good ears and know what to listen for. Otherwise it can really be helpful to take advice and direction from others. 100% agree. The advice that one has to "listen for themself" is true enough, but as wit... 
klipsch cornwall iv upgraded crossovers
Just tuning into this interesting conversation now because I’m considering the CW IV’s. I understand the various factors here. It is hard to see the logic of the CW’s not being improvable, unless the argument is that these speakers were designed ... 
Are You A Disciplined Audiophile?
I kind of like having the "crazy" posts around. Thankfully, we don't have to pay by the word, or it would get expensive, fast.  
Turntable prices. Is my mind going?
@dogberry Good one! My room has a nice stereo in it (and mosquito netting) so I’m headed there now! (And I'm keeping the post short because I don't have logorrhea.)  
Turntable prices. Is my mind going?
some forum engines have a filter option, where you can (un)select users never to see their comments @grislybutter Like mosquito netting. I like it. Also, helpful for screening out ad hominem attacks.  
Are You A Disciplined Audiophile?
@noromance @grislybutter @immatthewj Done with crazy posts. Ignoring crazy from here on out. With me?  
Turntable prices. Is my mind going?
@grislybutter repeating the same argument a 1000 times, mostly off-topic, with no relevance to the question or topic accomplishes nothing for me. But that’s just me. Nope, it’s not just you. We can all smell the landfill. Boy, it stinks, and ... 
Are You A Disciplined Audiophile?
Another thread that has attracted that same....tired...droning sound. Is there anywhere free from that repeating siren?
