A slight difference between NVA / Chord and Coherent. The former two do not have cat litter boxes in their product range. :lol:

You are ALWAYS the victim?
It is ALWAYS their fault?
You are NEVER part of the problem?
Inventing again, where have I said that or done that. I have spoken reality and the truth nothing more. You used to be like me, now you bend.

I will always admit if I see myself in the wrong.

You have to wait a long time for one, implying they could have charged a lot more. Shilling not required.

There is an answer!!!!!!!!!!!! we will see if they have the balls to do it.

The original conflict occurred because of the first version dominated by snakeoil caused the banning, so the forum is different now so the bans should be removed then there is no need for tit for tat conflict. Remove the cause of the problem. Then what needs to be discussed can be done there, all they have to do is apply their rules and control the trolls. Stop the conflict at source. This could also be applied at AoS and at Wigwam and at PFM, our tap would then be largely turned off. Wouldn't happen sadly at AoS and PFM as it is initiated and created by the owners, but AA, WW, and even TAS could do it easily. BUT :epopc: unlikely. NOT BECAUSE OF US!!!!

OH FFS that was a response attack, nasty because the attacks made on me were nasty - tit for tat. Don't throw the first stones then I have no motivation to throw shit back.

No apology for that he deserved it, see how strongly he reacted, why!, he protest too loudly. I am called gay, impotent and other insults all the time on the likes of snakeoil, it just makes me laugh, if it wasn't true surely he would have just laughed and said "touche".

I go on the evidence of my ears with my system in my listening room and i believe this technology has raised the bar. I think the only reason the price is not higher is because they want to promote sales of their dual BNC compatable DACs which are required to get the maximum benefit.

Sorry mate Chord are slurpers one of the worst, BUT you have found benefit to justify the cost, so you have credibility in choice even though they have none over their pricing.
