When I buy HiFi I want to know what the products are all about. What their sonic USP’s are, i.e. the main traits that make them stand out. This is something I’m fanatical about trying to convey, so in a review you will always see me highlighting the main comparative sonic traits in bold. So does a HiFi review have Objectivity and with a capital ‘O’ or subjectivity with a small ‘s’ ?
A review needs to be comparative to have a point and to walk down the middle for manufacturers and consumers and be confident in asserting what products do sonically.
I looked at the fact that you need to have benchmarks to assess any audio products. For explanation have a look here.
Making comparisons when reviewing HiFi is absolutely essential. It not only shows that I have thought of the comparative differences but shows that I am assessing these differences too.
