Audio myth series

In the audio community, there are a lot of myths that are very persistent. In this series, I'm going to explore many of them. Not everything covered in this series will necessarily turn out to be a myth.

Why are there so many audio myths?

People believe what they want to believe. Once they have formed a belief, many reject any new information that contradicts their established opinion. This is human nature.

To overcome this, an open mind and some education is needed as well as a more scientific approach. Science changes it's opinion based on new information. It sounds simple enough, but this approach while very sensible and based on common sense, isn't so common.
