I understand entirely what you are saying and I try very hard to discriminate between objective, verifiable facts and opinion, mine as much as anyone elses.ifor said:But! Dave, no disrespect intended, but you are one of the "preachers" that seem to expect us all to accept your views/knowledge/experience as fact/gospel. I'm far from convinced that your version of reality is "reality". I could have addressed this to any number of people here, so please don't take it as a pointed dig at you. My point is that so many present their views as fact, but I believe very few.davedotco said:People are entitled to their opinions but when those opinions are used in an attempt to argue against reality I see no problem in calling them on that
In this context it is an objective, verifiable fact that vinyl playback distorts the sound more than digital playback there is simply no argument there.
Some people prefer the sound of vinyl playback and think that it sounds more realistic, that is an opinion based on a subjective evaluation, one that I might share in some cases.
Both of these statements are true and not mutually exclusive, I have absolutely no issue with that.
If I ever put across my opinions as facts then I expect to be called on it, I try not to do it but I accept that I may not always express mysellf as clearly as I should and I will try harder.
