This should silence the noisesGazzip said:Well, I’m listening to my radio in the kitchen and I can hear someone’s phone chip,chip,chip chirruping through its speaker. I’m also printing a 250 page report, which seems to printing just fine at the same time without any visible artefacts. So I would surmise that your comparative example is complete and utter balls!MajorFubar said:+1 One of my pet hates too.

I hate all the foo that goes with the hobby. No other hobby seems to have quite so much of it. Imagine photographers claiming their photos look better when stored on certain memory cards or when using a particular brand of rechargeable battery with their camera. Or them buying an esoteric USB cable to improve the quality of their prints. The equivalent of those kind of daft claims are welcomed and encouraged in hifi circles, and if you try to call them out, you're the bad guy. Whole scene is tainted by a minority of weirdos who think eg changing the fuse in their mainsplugs affects the sound quality in any perceivable way, and as a result, collectively the hifi community can't shake off the associated ridicule and the image of being full of strange eccentric batchelors with fair-isle sweaters.
