False Hi-Fi Gurus (or who you should ignore)

Unread post by Dr Bunsen Honeydew » Tue Nov 07, 2017 11:12 am

Votes for who is the worst. Not manufacturers as they are a different problem, it is the know nothing knob heads who think they know something who need to be shown up.

My current top votes for the latest bullshit floating around from the *experts*. Mine are very AoS based, others here have more experience of PFM and Wigwam.

1 Marco (always top for me)
2 Bigboy (coming up fast on the rails)
3 Wanker (the eternal never ending arse)

Bigboy has appeared from no where to be the largest poster of crap on AoS ATM, he has replaced Jerry in my top three.

Bigboy is now quoting DDR about anything and everything without ever describing the music. Last week he was selling his ZYX cartridge, now it's the best all round cartridge he's heard and compares it to Koetsu.

A few months ago he thought that the NVA Phono 2 w/ 2nd psu, was the best value for money possible. Now he is promoting other phono stages and organising bake-offs to exclude NVA.

Unreliable.

How about Suffolk Tony - Mr Naim. I will give him a plus though, his signature used to be UpperSheepsBottom, always made me laugh.

When we get a good list of candidates I will put up a poll. There are some complete knob heads at Wigwam we must include. I will let you lot pick them but I am sure we will agree.

Fatpoopy of course - done so many Uturns that it is impossible for him to know exactly where he is.

MichaelC from PFM. He blew 4K on a Stiletto to transform his LP12 into a "super deck". :lol: :lol: :lol:

He could have put together a good system for that.

Not just one incident arses, anyone can make a mistake, I am looking for candidates of the disease, who can't help themselves being arses. Who whenever you read them it makes you go FFS what is this shite about, or seeing that they are just spouting the opposite of reality. Not looking for the shills, they are another category of arse.

We have here the false hi-fi gurus, we have also the trade spammers talking selling bollocks about their products or the ones they stock, and then the shills who back them up for a "consideration", shall we say.

Sometimes they crossover like it seems Bigboy is doing from forum prat to Fireybum shill and assistant (what ever that means).

Luckily these eeeeediots are still very much a minority, but they pollute the opinions of the genuine enthusiasts.
