I find it hard to believe you mean that as being acceptable on a forum.
Yes you are correct. I didn't quite capture the sarcasm i intended.

The thing is there's a time and place for smut, humour, ridicule or whatever you fancy but there's a proclamation of "We treat people with respect here" so comments like the Annie Lennox one go completely against the grain of what they claim to stand for, utter hypocrisy...

In case it matters they are now getting a feeling from AlanBoxes.

A lot of money for a feeling and creative description thereof.

It amazes me the path that is taken to trying and spending. Why is it always someone who is disinterested in whatever technology might be behind les boxes.

I invite you to observe the discussion today.
Something stinks
Watch the con men squirm
Secondly we all hear differently. Experience and better kit will open up your perception of changes. Don't you find that once you have an improvement to your sound you can never go back?
therefore it is pointless taking note of people who assert the night and day diffference from something that just does not even make a difference to AN Oher.

I'm Alan.

Perspective: The improvements are dependent on the system, you wouldn't expect to hear a difference on an Aiwa separates system. OK that is a bit flippant but the greatest benefit is heard on a balanced system, by that is meant one that has 'equal' performance to all the individual parts.
It's no good putting a top of the range amp into an otherwise average system.

Clutching at straws bullshit as you have been found out.

I can prove you wrong, I do it everyday. Basic NVA starter system - introduce a pair of A80 power amps :shock: feck me where has that extra music come from.

The shilling of the Class D amps has started again. It is quite pathetic and anyone with half a brain should be able to see through it. The fact that he has been thorougly exposed as a con man over the cat litter box says it all. The Coherent Cowboy says the performance of the amp can be improved by 20%. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Steve Toy is 50 today - wouldn't it be nice to give him back his forum that was conned and bullied off of him by Marco.

I've not been for a looksee at AOS since I left before pushed but I can imagine the depths that the shilling is heading towards.

Here's a counter idea to Alan's. If your amp is designed with sufficinetly high SNR and high enough PSRR with sockets that adhere to grounding standards then none of this bollocks should be necessary. I genuinely struggle to beleive that people are willing to pay more for a box and some cables than I spent building my amps, FFS..

Bigboy seems to have sucumbed to the cat litter box :Bllocks: . Hardly surprising after visiting his mate Firybum who is the Coherent Cowboy's number one shill. :lol: We all remember the phono stage saga.
