At this point, the hi-fi stereo market is inundated with enough high-quality, pristine gut-bearing machines that it makes it nearly impossible to draw distinctions between different models’ reviews, so you might as well toss ’em — they’re worthless! Because one industrious young (sounding) knob turner has taken care of the only spec that matters anymore: welcome to KnobFeel.
Recently discovered by The New Republic, KnobFeel’s blog gives us video after video of knob twist after knob twist. A few sentences sprinkled underneath each review give us the technical considerations (axis, consistency, temperature, what have you), but it’s the knob-twisting money shots, communicated entirely in delighted moans and dissatisfied grunts that really give us a true understanding of the knob — of its essence.
