Unfortunately, double-blind tests on hi-fi audiophiles .... using stuff like wire-coat hanger 'cables' instead of $15,000 gold 'monster' items .... that they thought they were experiencing ... proves the human ear simply cannot experience much of the sonic gain claimed by these high-end products.

Unfortunately, double-deaf tests on camera gear heads .... using stuff like 6mp Canon 10D instead of $8,000 D4+70-200 .... that they thought they were seeing ... proves the human eye simply cannot experience much of the image gain claimed by these high-end products.

Only the brain and (perversely) a depleted wallet can 'convince you' of the benefits. Sad fact remains ... the family dog gets more aural pleasure from even average hi-fi gear than does it's human owner.

Little point in discussing the vinyl with these 'philes' ... they all use 'reference' recordings that 'test' the sonic values of the system .... god forbid they might buy a record that actually contained something as simple as music. *

Little point in discussing the Art with these camera'philes' ... they all use test charts and brick walls that 'test' the visual values of the system .... god forbid they might buy (shoot) a piece of Art that actually contained something as simple as meaning. *

* Music: something 'normal' people listen to on their radios, ipods, etc. without worrying if the 'high C demodulated tones are reproduced accurately' etc ....

* Photographs: something 'normal' people look at on their computers, in magazines, etc. without worrying if the high ISO tones are reproduced accurately etc ....

Well, not perfect, but...

If only there was a "100% magnified view" of sound.
