DBT Is Flawed Because Bob Stuart Says So Reply #100 – 2012-08-14 01:18:24 Quote from: audioclaudio on 2012-08-14 00:33:53Quote from: Woodinville on 2012-08-14 00:07:23How do you explainQuoteRobert Harley -- Mon, 07/14/2008 - 10:28My point is that the better-sounding piece of equipment more easily allows you to forget the equipment and focus on the music. Electronic artifacts are a constant reminder that we're listening to a re-creation, rather than to music itself. Greater musical enjoyment comes not from listening in analytical mode for specific sonic attributes, but through lower awareness of the electro-mechanical system between listener and performer. The listener might not be aware of why he feels a closer connection to the music with better equipment. One doesn't have to be consciously aware of a reduction in artifacts to appreciate the deeper musical involvement the reduction in those artifacts engenders.Maybe this is how.That's so far off I don't know where to start. You can listen any way you want in a blind test, you just don't know what you're listening to.So sorry, that's baloney.
