Interesting, I don't see how this topic even remotely compares to believing in God, no matter how you slice it. Fact, Jesus did exist, study your history a little. You don't even have to use the Bible to prove that.

I once tortured my dealer (no, not that one!) for weeks on end by "auditioning" power amps. I had plenty o' power, I just wanted (thought I needed) more. I used the same 3 tracks of program material for all of it. I'm way too embarassed to reveal those choices now, but it wasn't the songs I was listening to.

When it was all over (they still let me shop there, 30 years on),
I didn't have much that was definitive to show for my efforts.
The differences were mostly non-existant, except for slight colorations in very narrow ranges. Having had to transcribe recorded arrangements in college, I felt pretty confident about my ears at the time.

And tubes were something a roadband was always short by one, so after I moved to solid state @ home, I never looked back.

Ultimately, in a non-A/B switching test, I knew I would not be able to aurally recall those differences once I went home, cashless. We don't possess that kind of aural recall, nor do we for color perception, either.

So, you just have to give in at some stage, point your finger, open your wallet and pick one.

Jesus Christo mio! How did God get into this thread????

Frank Lloyd Wright said that God is in the details, but that only makes it harder to scrape Him out of the crevices.

I have envisioned that in the past, but less like a robot and more like those inflatable tube "men" @ used car lots.

I suggest that we drop religion from this thread for obvious reasons. So, no more religion.
