SBAF is far ahead in pushing measurements forward
@GoldfishX, you have a problem.
Now, don't worry too much, because it is easily treated if you start right now! Do NOT try to understand ASR logic. Do NOT even visit ASR.
DO avoid Amir everywhere else (is there anywhere else that will have him these days?) as well.
This moment is the first moment of the rest of your life :)
I mean, if I saw commentary there on what the stuff actually SOUNDS like, it wouldn't seem so robotic, but it's like stepping into an alternate universe. It just seems like so much work to offer nothing of value.
The value is in safety built on a monolithic, unassailable belief system, SINAD. Your dollar has been well spent, no questions.
"so much work to offer nothing of value."
It's value is as a support system to Amir's ego. Be kind to your mind and stay away :)
And just to clarify, I've only stumbled upon there when doing due diligence on specific items. Their information is a special kind of useless. Kind of like the opposite of new toy syndrome, but cut from the same cloth.
Yeah, if you step back and look at in terms of consumer psychology. It's had a big impact.
@Thad E Ginathom - “Avoid Amir everywhere else”
He’s infected all my other audio groups. They post his measurements all the time even if they contradict other sources. Even online merchants feature an ASR stamp of approval on their products
Ye Gods, that makes Amir more dangerous than Coronavirus!
So glad I don't have to view SBAF through protective goggles. I have given up other audio sites, except for checking the for-sale forum of a local one. But I don't post there. It's the opposite to ASR: full of radical subjectivist bullshit! They'd hate Amir, but for all the wrong reasons, lol.
"so much work to offer nothing of value" except this type of effort skews the marketplace significantly to appease those same, self-serving deaf ears stroking their own egos while lining pockets.
