So why doesn't the volume go to the average? Or why doesn't everybody turn
their volumes DOWN instead of UP? You can't explain that by what you just
said. Something else is going on. That something else tends to favor
Also, Ron Parker recently posted: "I have to admit the new loud master is
better." Why is that?
Now I myself have turned up my volumes considerably for exactly the reason
you said: To match other volumes. But the explanation of why things tend up
not down and not to an average MAY be a preference for more harmonics.
Suppose someone turns up the volume for more harmonics. The rest of us
come along and increase our volume to keep pace. The levels now are all
the same. Someone turns up the volume again for more harmonics. The
rest of use do the same, but merely to keep pace. And so on. We're part
of the problem.
