    Wow! I never noticed. That’s quite odd to say the least.

    Cheapaudioguy is just angry. He should listen to more music and quit worrying about what us crazy audiophiles are doing.

    The hardest part of being an audiophile is figuring out what an unknown component sounds like without the preconceived biases of asking for other’s opinions…

    Agreed. Plus, it's important to learn he's very much a "newbie" to this whole hobby/avocation/addiction/whatever of ours, and is still a "grasshopper", if you ask me. I remember that he put a review of the GR-Research DIY XL-S Encores standmount (which some of you may remember I also built up) with something like, all of 4 hours on the speakers, stating they were the greatest speaker he had ever heard, and Danny told me he had to write to him and say, "Dude, you need to run these in for 200-300 hours before drawing any conclusions about them. Reviewing them with 4 hours on them will not be accurate."

    (GR-Resarch X-LS Encores shown...)

    He's still got a lot to learn, IMHO.

    To be honest, I don't have the patience for the videos of all these people saying bad things about audiophiles.
    But here is the answer (which I didn't see either)

    What’s the big deal with the poster? All the 50 shades of grey books and all the silly movies about that nonsense, hardly anyone even knows it is an ancient art form to tie someone up in bondage form and some find it very erotic and stimulating. Just google “Shibari photographs” for example…

    It’s all about the clicks for most of those guys. As the Facebook whistle blower noted, the negative attracts more eyeballs than the positive.
