Re: What Are Your Biases?

I still have a Bias that says: Things we keep doing, that we shouldn't do. But I seem to be alone on that one. Which of course means it is a really good one. Or bad one. As the case may be.

Re: Boring ?

'Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar' Yes it is; and sometimes it isn't. Remember Bill Clinton. And Freud was not an impartial observer on this point. He was obfuscating his own needs and desires, at least according to his own theory of other people. Though of course not himself. Which is the deniabi...

Re: Very interesting indeed

I actually find these things tiring and boring rather than interesting - but against my will I feel myself dragged into it. Unfortunately I think these conflicts are unending-neverending. But - let me point out: If YNWaN can report that this forum "randomly accuses people" then he must surely have r...

Re: Boring ?

I talked about "Complex Equivalents" yesterday (seeing rabbits in the clouds etc). Well, I've got another example. I wasn't sure if it was, but now I am. The picture at the bottom of the page here http://www.audioflat.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=721&start=10 The responses on page three have no...

Re: What Are Your Biases?

They don't seem like biases (using your definition)
OK. Perhaps we need a better defintion Bias = A tendency to repeat regardless of outcome.

So sometimes they are sensible and sometimes they are not. But we just keep repeating them.

Re: What Are Your Biases?

Is that a bias? Yes of course it is....many people love ports - but I share your bias. They don't work for me. (Though one did, once upon a time. But this hasn't changed my bias.) I forgot my ultimate Bias. And that is Streaming. I hate these services. I don't like their interfaces - it is all glim...

What Are Your Biases?

Hifihaven.org has had a good run with this question - so why not here? Let's define Bias first. The quick definition is - A systematic mistake. Systematic because it is a tendency (or programme) that is repeated regardless of the earlier outcomes. But a Bias can also be something that is good and he...

Re: Boring ?

I think there is another reason, why talking about hifi can be boring. Listening to our music can often be very satisfying, so we are probably releasing lots of endorphins and such like. This is so pleasant that we have to repeat the performance - and repeat the repetition. But here comes a little d...

Re: Boring ?

Hifi Fora have existed quite a number of years now. This must mean, that we already have said, what can be said about hifi'y things. It does get boring to read, what we have already read a number to times before. And it is quite difficult to say something new, whilst everything was new, when the int...

Re: JJ 2A3-40 DHT Single ended triode, power amplifier

After a week I returned to the P20/A20 and it was like a breath of fresh air. So much so, that I ordered the A60!

When someone new comes to the house, they always say: "Oh! You have a Leben". From now on I am going to say, "Yes. But I listen to NVA"

Quite a nice tag-line for Richard. :grin:
