That's more likely to be the case.
With this dealer's argument, surely any HiFi equipment built with internal cabling, or indeed a printed circuit board 'wears out' after a few years & must be replaced - how nice for the dealer Party

Yes, it's almost admirable to warn unsuspecting hi-fi owners of their peril!

Well one amp I'm using is from 1974! I wonder why it still works,and sounds the same as I remember when I use to repair them in the 70 's.

I'd almost forgotten what this thread sounded like...

When I played REM's Green this evening, I realised it had been some years since I last played it. Whilst enjoying the songs I noticed backing tracks I hadn't heard before and it generally sounded better IMO. Another example of auditory recollection that suggests the 4/8 second science has been taken out of context.

With apologies for resurrecting a 5 year old thread !) Regarding the 4/8 second memory thing, i'd always need to refer to the original study to make a proper judgment on the validity of the statement. In context it may well be referring to one very specific circumstance and aspect of audio memory. I seriously doubt the study concluded that people can't remember what music sounds like or indeed what the relative bass/mid/high levels of a particular amp are. I suspect it might refer to less tangible aspects such as instrument placement in a soundstage, which between two phono amps, for example, might be very subtle.
Anyway, it sounds like the kind of study I'd enjoy reading so if anyone has a link to the research please do let me know!Smile
