And most of his gear is as desirable as a fondue set?

Re: Uncorrected lies on hi-fi forums

What is lies about what we are saying, you are being very defensive for some reason. No real reason other than attempting to stay close to some sort of objective truth. All I asked was what was the technical disadvantages of digital xovers, all I have been shown are practical disadvantages of parti...

Re: Uncorrected lies on hi-fi forums

Passive crossovers produce no noise (well next to none as everything creates noise to a degree). Active crossovers create thermal noise and phase related distortion from the unity game op amps and from the associated power supply, so are in fact worse, it is another marketing lie.

Re: Skills and experience v big bullshiter

Cheap crap marketed as inexpensive product is one thing. Cheap crap marketed as state of the art is another. With hi-fi it's so easy to pull the wool over most buyer's eyes.
