I think we should really respect that bigman actually came here.

I would like to see a test with say, NVA, high end Black Rhodium, as many other available and maybe Nordost as the reference. And also test for hum/buzz and RFI.

Do you fancy hosting it - the more bake-offs the better.

Respect is earned DC. Just flying in here and spouting nonsense when it suits, only to back down when the voice of reason SP chimes in, isn't any sort of reason for me to back off and stop highlighting the hypocrisy of all this :naughty:

For the record, I'll be the first to say well done to Biggy if his cables are as good as we keep hearing. My problem is the way they're foisted upon the sheep on AoS and supported by the same names with the same ulterior motives :naughty:

Bigman, I was banned from AOS by Il Duce merely for referring to the bake off contained in the second link Savvy has posted above. Do you consider that just and AOS to be the "friendly forum". Is there any wonder why we take the piss.

BUT as he says he doesn't make the rules - BUT he uses the rules. What is going on at AoS could never happen here, even if I did it I would be soon called out.

Imagine my loan gear thread, but loaned only as long as not compared with some (which ever) company.

Andre has asked to be removed by PM. Below is the daft exchange that caused it. Why join a forum and insist on PM-ing me with stuff that should be on the forum. I would have time for nothing else if everyone did it, rather defeats the point of a forum don't you think. Read from the bottom up.

You are the problem with these forum you slag off. Fuck what up, Who the fuck do you really think you are? tbh honest why not just put a perminant ban up just like all the other you seem to dislike! i dont give a shit either.

I couldn't give a shit. Why do you think the forum is here TO COMMUNICATE ON IT what makes you think i want private conversations with you. You joined a forum not ME!!! You have been doing so well since the time on the naughty step, why fuck it up now by insulting me, you just make me look for excuse to bin you again. You are your own worst enemy Andre.

Why are you PM-ing me with things you should just post on the forum, that is what it is for.

Probably only for people with Back panel Glass fuse Holder on older amps.. Why not replace with ETA '1110' Circuit Breaker, They fit directly into a Fuse holder cut out, can be used as the on/off switch hence you dont need the amps power switch or associated wiring anymore. For instance one of these in 2A Breaker has an internal resistance of just 0.25 Ohm.. The Higher the current rating the lower the Resistance..

So you getting shut of the original Power switch, The fuse holder & fuse as well as the internal wiring, gotta be a technical improvement, Not saying its any sound difference tho.

I'm failing to see the logic in this. How can anyone who is not a member be the problem with the forum he's criticising? :roll:

It's like saying Winston Churchill was the problem with Germany's Nazi regime. :think:

Andre is famous for his odd behaviour. If I know him he will be regretting it by tomorrow. I think a lot of it is he sees authority or someone says behave and he sees red, I wish I could cure it as when in the right mind and on song he is a valuable member to any forum, but this mad streak keeps emerging.

Andre will be back under another name. Just another wobbly true to form. Looking forward to his return here or somewhere else. :mrgreen:
