I've been directly asked a reasonable and serious question. I have freely given up my time to build up to an answer which, in the spirit of this Harbeth User Group will stand the test of time i.e. only needs to be asked and answered once.
If you think it can be answered with a simple yes/no answer then you better look elsewhere. Nothing in audio is black/white, yes/no. Everything is in the grey areas. Unless you appreciate the variables that operate in the grey areas, you may as well flip a coin.
Is your need for an instant answer so pressing that the knowledge that would enable you to make your own decision (not take my word for it) just too much bother?
