Re: Ayre DX-5 at $10,000 is a rebadged $500 OPPO.
Your reply is what I have been listening during years, the easy way out: "If you're not able to hear the difference does not mean that it's not there"... "If you're a deaf is not a fault of players", etc, etc. Who prejudge the other to justify its own “dogmas” and “subjectivities”, is the one who has less objective ability to discover the differences in the quality of the sound between equipment, players, amplifiers, pre, etc.
1st) I never said that I don´t heard difference between players, and that by the way already we have tested.
2nd) I've said that if YOU are able to hear differences and identify it in a seriuos blind test, I would give you an Ayre DX-5…
3rd) Your reply confirms what I supposed.
4rd) What is under discussion is whether actually in terms of audio quality, justified pay more 9,000 (Ayre) or 3,000 (Lexicon)
respect an OPPO BDP 83SE or BDP95.
5th) You think being a great specialist in audio is to compare quality of products proportional to its price. And that's why you underestimate to anyone who believes that cannot be justified the 9,000 difference between these players….
6th) After all, eventually I prefer some deafness and not a net stupidity.
