fair enough?
agreed... disagreeing is OK as it helps fine tune thoughts and lines of reason

and to meet you half way I am not sure sonic difference between a $4000 amp and a $500 is terribly profound or is even a better way to spend money to get a true hi-fidelity reproduction of the information on the CD.

Dukk & John -> I have to chuckle here, I've read the replies you guys have posted and I think the three of us have been trying to say roughly the same thing all along! I find it ironic, actually. My opinion on this whole thing is simply that it is nearly impossible to get 100% accurate reproduction especially when you consider the amount of companies/components that are out there, and the environment we're working in. Like I said before, the thing that most influences your audio is the listening space. A car has a very long list of things that need to be corrected. It takes a retarded amount of work to get an SQ car in contention for competitions. Like racing, a sound comp shows the elite of what the equipment and it's builder(s) are capable of. In the real world it's all about compromise. Car audio is a hobby, and audiophiles are audio lovers, nothing more. Can we move on?

RM - John and I both like to banter and we fit eachother well in that the discussion usually hangs on the the technical side and we try to not make it personal.

You appear to have a good grasp of what you are talking about as well.

That Alpine was 'the ' back in the day. I might still have one lying around somewhere.

Ahaha I know, we pulled one out of a Hilux (Japan's version of a Toyota Tacoma) and stood in awe of it for a while. I'm a certified installer, so I do know what I'm talking about, but I don't know everything, and I'm not perfect. I tend to keep my responses more on the laymen's terms side just so that people not-so-technical can read my posts and get a general grasp of what I'm talking about

I was using a Soundstream TC306 HU at that time (I had just sold my car with the Concord HU in it)
