Interrogating the Angles
Crap, what am I trying to say?
Music coming out of the Totem Arros sounds different from [than?] music coming out of the DeVore gibbons. I think that's what I'm trying to say. Something like that, at least.
Music sounds different depending upon the speakers I'm using... er, listening to. Whatever.
There are differences. Real differences. That's for certain.
But I can't, for the life of me, figure out what those differences are. I can hear the differences that is, I can hear a difference but I can't pinpoint the source. Where is the difference coming from? What's making the change? I need to somehow listen deeper, uncover extraneous layers of information, get to the origin of things.
If I can't describe the differences between two speakers, how will I describe the differences between two tubes? If I can't describe the differences, how do I know they even exist? I can throw some ideas out there, and let you agree or disagree, validate me, make me and my ideas real, tell me I'm crazy or tell me I'm brilliant. But what will that mean?
