I have a feeling this one event will attract quite the crowd. :-k Kinda of like Angelo's cooking last year. \:D/

I never choose to join any group that would have the likes of myself as a member.
I am better than that.

If it is a circle jerk, remember I am not 14 any more, and would never bet money on myself these days.

Hell, I'll tag along just for the laughs !!!!
It better by EARLY in the morning, while most people can still stand though. :D

Tom lost allot of the "Magic Ear" credibility last year, I need to see 1st hand if he can redeem himself this year.

I'm sure the Crazy Drunk Bitch had allot to do with your judgement last year, but well see.

What an idiot.

He also says that all copper is equal. Being a physicist, he should know better. It is a known fact in the world of physics that copper can change its properties. Think Cryogenics. As far as his "shielding may have some minor benefit" comment? He obviously does not listen. Good lord, it's funny how some educated people can be so stupid.


I know for a FACT all copper is NOT equal. I machine the nasty shit in high production volumes ! What a dip shit this guy is. Probably from Berkley ! Pffft.

I think I'm starting to learn what Tom is experiencing Ray. He's gone totally tubular ! That's the direction I'm heading also. I don't want gobs of power anymore, just sweet, warm, smooth and detailed sound ! I'm a lamp cord guy too, but from what I'm hearing from my journey into tubes so far is that there just may be some audible differences in cables ??????? :D

Dancin' with the drunk, crazy bitch....

Uh-huh. Let me get this straight. You come over to my cabin at some ridiculous hour [like 1 or 2:00AM] after a day of heavy drinking and ask me to do the test and then say that I lost credibility? Jesus, try me when I'm sober and not sloshed.

Maybe that had a little bit to do with it. I would also like to point out that [even while sloshed] I heard the differences between the two criteria [and described what I was hearing in detail] and I also pointed out the "strange noise" before anybody else who was in the room......and those same people did not notice anything until I pointed the differences out. Only then, after careful listening, did it dawn on them as to what I was talking about.

And I lost credibility? ](*,)

Also, I was thrown for a loop because you listen too music at insane [to me] listening levels. Add to that, your system is brighter than mine. Add to that, a "surprise" in the test that was completely unexpected. That being that the CD was a recording of an LP. I don't listen as loud as you do and I don't have a bright system [that's what he prefers, I'm not knockin' it] so I have not noticed the snaps and pops before in that recording. It was only that night during the surprise drunkin' critical listening test that I first heard them. This was unexpected.

Now, as we discussed at the cabins. The reasons why I didn't hear the fact that it was an LP at home are due to ambient noise. I have a refrigerator 10' away from the listening position, a computer that stays on 24/7 less than 12' away from the listening position and an A/C vent less than 8' away from the listening position. Not really an ideal spot for critical listening. Gotta remember, I lost my dedicated audio room after the birth of my son and I purchased that album after his birth.
