Audiophile terminologies

Could someone help me appreciate the meaning of the words used so frequently in reviews:
Transparency, Warmth and Neutrality, Can a sound from a speaker be neutral yet not transparent or warm?
I understand that these are subjective I will be happy with any possible help.
Thanks -Pradeep

Re: Audiophile terminologies

For beginning audiophiles "The Complete Guide to High-End Audio" by Robert Harley really helps in the transition from neophyte to guru. The book is written is a very accessible way with simpler topics at the beginning of the book and becoming more advanced towards the end. Highly recommended.
