Must admit i always had a love for big american amps and speakers i couldn't afford,
stems from when i was a subscriber of Stereophile and The Absolute Sound,
compare to the likes of Mark Levinson,Audio Research,Krell, Threshold etc...
stuff from U.K. look and fells like shed built.

Meanwhile, Biggys/AoS phono bake off hijacking chickens have come home to roost on The Audio Snooze. Well done to Mr Whippy for highlighting the pathetic game playing going on:

http://theaudiostandard.net/thread/4096 ... lTo=124576

As for Biggys claims that the circling of the coaches was “made unanimously to hold this bakeoff in RD's absence” that would only be the case if Biggy, Pakka Macca, Fireybum and Marco were the sole arbiters of what/who can attend. We all know that things would be completely different if more people were asked what phono stages they’d want to hear :naughty:

Unanimous decision :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Why can't they just stand up to Il Duce and get banned like everyone else with balls.

So who is Mr Whippy, do we know him. At last someone apart from here is pointing at the ludicrous reality of the process. But I am not sure there will be much sympathy or back -up. Remember TAS put in an equally stooopid block on me and our forum members for ASBO.

Bigboy - "If the owner was to moderate his online behaviour in such a way that didn't display sub-human mentality and attitude"

I think this is just a copy across because The Elephant in the room displays sub human qualities. I am at a loss where mine are. I would be very happy to be told where my sub humanness is and in what deeds and words.

If people don't want to be with me they stay away, that is normal, if a bit extreme, as does anyone seriously think that beyond a handful of people that I recognise that I know who is who. I don't suddenly start taking the piss out of what looks like strangers :lol: . No it is a ploy, part of the game that is being played out.

Life is so simple, you don't like someone, then ignore them unless they deserve the piss being taken. AND in this case give up and learn when to stop digging.

There is no good reason to ban Richard from a bake-off. Those who object to his presence should either get over it or not attend.

It is all Marco and nothing but Marco, his pages long PMs, his manipulation. We are open in taking the piss out of him which = honesty. He is all in the shadows playing out his agenda and games. This event is just one of them, he seems to be not involved :roll:

Many have sided with Marco because of their own insecurities...I doubt he needs to put much effort into achieving his desired result.

However, he and they have made a misjudgement on this occasion.

Any rational observer can see how this one has played out.

MCRU is right. It only needs everyone to act like grown ups.
