    Thank you

    I just wanted to say thank you to all our forum members. We are going into our fourth year and Audioshark has become the true "friendliest" audio forum. We all have a tremendous amount of stress in our lives. Mortgages. Job related stresses. Financial concerns. House repairs. Saving for retirement or saving for the kids college fund. Work commitments, travel, the list goes on and on. The last thing we want to do is unwind after a tough day, with a glass of our favorite beverage, some sweet songs playing in the background to engage in the endless war of cyber fighting - where nobody wins.

    Here's the fact: nobody is right and nobody is wrong. In this hobby, it's about budget, personal preferences and experiences. Nothing else matters. You can't hit someone over the head with graphs and charts to convince them electrostatics are king. You can't beat people into submission with measurements to convince them solid state amps are superior to all tube amps by showing them a tube amps poor measurements, distortion, etc. We like what we like and we don't like what we don't like. The key is respect through experience, not ignorance. Learning from one another is one of the greatest reasons we have this forum, but nothing can take the place of our own experiences. Our members don't trot out some graph or chart to prove an amp or speaker is a poor design, they go and listen and often, they are surprised by the result. But the key - is listening, experience for oneself and sharing those experiences, good, bad or indifferent. I encourage all forum members to attend the shows - especially Axpona and RMAF. No, shows aren't the best, but they are a great place to get a taste of what's out there.

    Our members aren't afraid to ask those seemingly silly basic questions either and feel safe that not everyone is expected to know everything. I can't tell you the number of people I've talked to over the past few years about computer audio. It is confusing! Our members talk about their experiences - a trip to hear a friends system, a audio show they attended or a dealer demo. Our forum members know that you can hear everything you can measure, but you can't measure everything you hear. They don't design imaginary systems on paper and proclaim they will beat anything out there. They don't talk about a product based on measurements, they discuss it based on actual experiences. Our members have brought us new local manufacturers and have brought us some interesting new products. Our members bring us new bands and great new musicians we've never heard of before.

    We have a great group of people, many from all around the world. I've learned a lot from those in South Africa, France and other parts of Europe, Australia, Asia and more. We've learned about great products and great music from around the world.

    Thank you again to all members for your continuing support, professionalism and for making Audioshark the best audio forum.
