Stupid statements from across the interwebs

I thought it'd be funny to post some ignorant posts from reviews on Amazon etc, just to laugh at how anyone could be so stupid.

My favorite so far this month, on Amazon, where someone suggested at minimum, FLAC should be offered to allow close to CD bit rate for those who prefer better quality sound.

A guy responded saying

Quote:
This is just miserable nonsense. I'm an "audiophile" - I have a pro sound card in my PC and Stax headphones. I used to have a Linn LP12 (you know who you are if you know what one of those is). MP3s sound just fine thanks.
Stax headphones? MP3's sounding fine? Lulz.

I don't remember the exact quote down to the word, but it was a recording forum where someone posted a mix for people to check out and they go:

"PS I left the C4 multiband compressor on the master buss so it's kind of mastered"

I know - I was saying how, if he's wearing stax, does he REMOTELY think MP3's sound ok?

No, I know, I'm sorry...I just saw stax and wanted to point out how good (and ****ing expensive!) they are...not much relation to the thread actually.

Back to the scheduled interweb idiocy report!

I can't remember where, but at one point I got in an argument with a self proclaimed "audiophile" about mp3 sound quality. His premise was "but mp3's are ALSO 16bit, just like CD's" I realized the argument was pointless after he said all music was crap except techno.
