While I enjoying bashing the press as much as the next phile, I have, over the years found many pieces of equipment to sound dramatically different from one combination, room, etc. to another. Thus, I understand press reluctance to completely thrash a product when they may not be hearing it in optimal circumstances/combinations. Conspiracy theories abound about who (manufacturers) is sleeping with who, and will likely continue for the forseeable future. I find little time to speculate about such things....cuts into listening time. I enjoy the mags as they give their opinion
and I find this entertaining, not my impression of what sounds good. I disagree with many of their impressions, as I disagree with philes I sit next to and listen to the same system. I still want to hear their impressions and opinions despite disagreements because ultimately my opinion matters as does every listeners opinion. I trust my ears, but do not stop learning and enjoying the art of listening.
Bottom line, we only have hearing for so long, enjoy it while you can.....Jallen
