General Discussion / Re: We All Listen Differently?
« Last post by capetownwatches on Yesterday at 11:07:54 PM »
We do listen differently. I for one seldom listen in psychotic anger to hard rock anymore, finding that age has taught me patience and understanding, and mellowed my musical tastes. I thus, listen, and appreciate different things about the music. I think the most delineating thing about how we listen, is age, and relative to that, our level of maturity.

I concur - this was me 20 years ago - Metalhead to the exclusion of most any other genre:

However, age and experience has done the unthinkable, and today I listen to a wide range of music, from Jazz and Blues to Classical and even some EDM... :o
The fact that I listen mainly with a headphone setup has given me an appreciation for well mastered and produced music from many genres I wouldn't even have considered in my youth.

The heavy stuff shall always remain my first love though.

Open Talk / Re: Are audiophiles anally retentive?
« Last post by chrisc on Yesterday at 10:10:09 PM »
The anally retentive customer who had spent over R1.2m and only had 16 CDs (and most were Indian music - not my first choice) is not by any means a music lover.  He is of the type that puts on a CD and skips through, playing 10 to 15 seconds of each track.   Then in his haste to put in the second one, the first falls on the floor and gets trodden on. 

No matter, wipe it on the curtain and it is good as new

Who am I to critisize?  He has just spent the equivalent of a Mercedes 500SL on some audio equipment and will probably buy more.   A speciality is an amp that has blue LEDs, much sexier than red ones I am told

;D Utilised. Frequently.

And quite reliable compared to some new ( and some old ) technology.

As with chrisc above, Mike. Eskom down, fibre down, Eskom back up, fibre down again after a couple of minutes. Eventually too much for my server (South Korean, so obviously not programmed for such scenarios  ;D).

No comment on the fact that it took me all of 2h to figure out all I had to do was switch everything off and sequentially back on again.

That's why you have that beautifull beast of a disc spinner, just insert and enjoy  :groovy:
