    Is anybody sick of the recent spate of threads?

    I haven't been a frequenter of this forum for a while - only just participated in it after a long hiatus but I notice a rash of posts from a core group of posters who seem to want to embarrass & denigrate anybody who posts their sonic impressions. There are many times when people are wrong about their impressions but there is a gentle way of teasing out these possible wrong impressions.

    I find the recent posts & threads that have been started are mostly from a group of people who are only interested in displaying their self-deluded scientific superiority by putting down anybody who posts sonic impressions.

    Is this sort of treatment what you want to see happening in this part of the forum? Speak up now or close this section & be done with it!

    Indeed! But why not close this section? Does it serve any purpose other than bandwidth wastage?

    That's exactly how I feel.

    These people should go post in the Hydrogen Audio forums. Where everyone knows everything sounds the same.

    This forum should have been closed a long time ago.

    Surely for every Hydrogen Audio, there are more AudioAsylum-like forums to hang out at... So long as folks find it interesting and enjoy the chat, what's it matter to you whether the place exists?

    Who here believes and "know everything sounds the same"?

    Sadly, it should be closed. No moderation and even adults behave as teens. I do hope that there aren't any other hobbies where people carry on with such hate and disrespect.

    One thing you should consider. This Audiophile section was not here from the beginning. Before there were many threads and subforums hijacked by topics you now find here.
    The Slimdevices staff was nerved by nonsense audiophile daydreams only disturbing the real existing problems of getting further with the products and software in other subforums.
    So this section was craeted as kind of cuckoo's nest. Since there was no subforum for the Transporter you will find several Transporter owners posting here also.
    I guess i remember this right. So if you really love serious outer space feeling you may join CA.
    Transporter (modded) -> RG142 -> Avantgarde Acoustic based 500VA monoblocks -> Sommer SPK240 -> self-made speakers

    Ah, I see. So now it has outlived it's use & is just a subforum for the disaffected & disillusioned.
    And yet, did I see Sean Adams posting in this section with measurements of the transporter which he stated had relevance to audibility & which you linked to? And yet their relevance to audibility was what again, Wombat?

    Guess nobody knows what this sub section is about!
