Ok. I like my $25.99 refurbished Sennheiser HD238. Just saying.

That's all you had to say bro .
Hey, my Gateway FPD2485 24" monitor is awesome I actually have never seen a better looking display in my eyes as of yet regarding color accuracy. This includes dell's $1100 Ultrasharp.

I never really said much about costs though, bro

And uhh, my $200 velodyne ULD 18 sounds awesome, even if it did sound better when the servo worked >_> Then again, it's a 20 year old version of the current DD-18 which is over 3 grand, same acoustical specs.

Almost every single one of these TV's are garbage Twisted nematic displays. The colors look like crap, they smear all over the screen, and people fail to realize how terrible these displays are, just because they have little badges saying LED TV, 240Hz, and are "this many mm thin; while being paired with the crappiest sound systems ever, having a floor standing speaker that is 3 inches wide with around 6 two inch drivers in them which would probably bottom out at around 150Hz with insane amounts of distortion and very diminished sounds both in the low and high range, while sounding very tinny at it's effective range when it's paired with a 6 inch subwoofer driver in a 1 cu ft bandpass box, while the amplification alone has at least 10% THD. Meanwhile, that sound system is labeled THX certified which is impossible because THX certification requires 80Hz extension on the satellite speakers to be crossed over to the sub. The subs in these sound systems are going upwards of 120Hz and are insanely easily located in the room. It should sound like there is no sub. If it sounds like you have a sub, then you have a problem.

I'm just using that as an example because I walked into a sony style store and witnessed this today while I checked out the Sony NEX 5 EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) camera. I had to explain to the sales rep exactly how bad his TV was, and he was trying to convince me that it was the best tv money can buy in it's class. I told him all about how garbage twisted nematic displays work down from how the liquid crystal reacts to the voltage applied by the DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) which turns an RGB code into a voltage regulation into about 256 different degrees of having the crystal at different variances of being twisted. Each subpixel having the ability to block 256 shades of light, cubed for each sub pixel is around 7.07 million colors. Not only that, but TN panels use a horizontal sub pixel array which messes up viewing angles and due to less colors, they have to use adjacent subpixels to fill in colors, which is THE REASON colors smear everywhere across the screen as if a monkey threw poo all over it. The sales rep lost me at twisted nematic. It seems no one can even comprehend how a simple AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen works at best buy either. The guy at car audio section didn't even know what THD % was, how to crossover a sub, and recommended the most garbage speakers ever with failure mylar tweeters when there were some way better Alpine speakers with silk domes which had the ability to rotate twards any angle in about 70 degrees of it's mounted axis. The guy at the networking center said the 2.4ghz was the router speed of the Lynksys E1000 router, when it's merely the radio band in which it communicates with other devices. I told him this and that the mbit transfer rate was the speed and he got pissed off at me.

This, and you ask why I talk down brands that don't deserve their rep??
Can't we all just hold hands, be friends and accept that all of us have different views?

After waiting 2 weeks for my amp to arrive from the FS section on here, i've not given up.

Going to order an Audiotailor Jade tonight, 3 days delivery. It has some excellent reviews on head-fi but i know little to nothing about valves.

That's not what he said at all. I think a better way to put it is that an audiophile or tvphile (whats the term for that? ) should know about and understand the various technologies and improvements offered by different gear. In essence, going down to the shop and buying a pair of Bose headphones does not make you an audiophile, just an uninformed consumer. Likewise, going down to the shop and buying the truly best sounding, most advanced component doesn't make you an audiophile either.

I have 2 open cans, the Grado SR60i (donut earpads) and a ATH-AD700 and I just purchased an ATH-M50S since I didn't have a decent closed set, can't wait for them to arrive.

Add me to the list if you please, please .

I've always believed it's better to be lucky than pretty much anything else out there, including an audiophile.
