Story of a love affair .…and rainy days !!
It is been almost three years that I know Mr. Amir Hossein Akbari. He is not only a good friend but also an audiophile that for years has been active in promoting high end audio in Iran . Through hard working and perseverance he has been able to construct a descent InterNet site for high end audio which provides opportunity for music lovers and audiophiles to navigate and enjoy articles and exchange views and opinions.
He knows and acknowledges that during this period I was probably the only one who has always provided full support for him and admired his efforts in promoting this hobby and I particularly support his website of HIFI.IR on the internet. I also occasionally made my criticism on his views and his approaches to high end audio and music and sometimes warned him of the pitfall of becoming self centered and egoistic on this issue . A typical trap for those enthusiasts who have limited knowledge on a subject but a mouthful of irrelevant words and statements which eventually leads to their destruction and ignorance !!
I have recently found his views and reviews on high end equipment , either intentionally or unintentionally, inaccurate, irrational and one sided. He has tangled himself in this illusion that whatever he recommends or reviews is perfect and flawless . He reprimands, blames, puts down and irrationally criticizes audiophiles in Iran and even passes the line that great world known manufacturers and designers are mostly stupid , incompetent and their products are worthless!!
In my opinion, and as I have said it before, Amir Hossein ‘s knowledge and experience in fundamental of music and high end is primitive, limited and on many occasions wrong. His experience and knowledge still needs to improve and develop . As long as his vision in music is limited to Moeein and Diana krawl , knowing the fact that he hardly , if ever , has attended a decent classical concert in his life , statements of this sort are irresponsible , emotional and destructive . WHERE HAS HE EXPERIENCED THE TRUE TIMBRE ACCUARCY of a violin, oboe, viola or cello? In his last article on HIFI. IR he considers magazines like Stereophile and Absolute sound worthless and “darepiit” !!!! not to mention he considers individuals like Robert Harly, John Atkinson, Martin Colloms , Gordon Halts … unskilled, novice and musically illiterate! A true indication of ignorance!!
I could have disregarded or ignored his views and comments again but for the sake of our friendship , rules of formalities and ethics I felt obliged to answer and respond to his often inaccurate and incorrect judgment and reviews of high end equipment.
In his latest review of Vitus Integrated amplifier which I auditioned for three hours I noticed a big flaw in his judgment which again proved to me that he does not know the basics of a good amplifier . Vitus lacks precision in rendering music which is the most important feature of a good amplifier!
As always I admire his hard work and endless effort in promoting high end audio in Iran . I know he has been all alone in this ordeal but he should definitely try to expand his expertise in this ground and try to truly understand the fundamental aspects of good music system before he can make any judgment or statement .
I would not hesitate to provide all my support and affection for him to stay fresh and active in this journey , no matter how long will it take but again emphasize on thes fact that he needs to re-evaluate his approach to music and must learn his limits and boundaries.
And finally my dear friend : “ Music and high end audio on this planet is not just limited to three individuals : Amir, Armen and Rummie!!!
Good Luck !
