I've known Andy Regan for years, he having been in the audio industry since before I had any involvement in it. Several months ago, when he called me to tell me he was thinking about joining Jerry Audio, I told him I hoped he would, thinking he and JH would be a great fit. And it was a great fit.   In the months since, Andy has really done a lot to rein in the chaos that comes with the hyper-growth at JH Audio, and there's still a lot more to do. If you read the release...
 True. Until headphone (and cable) manufacturers had developed 3.5mm plug bodies that were slim enough, you needed a dongle to use any headphones with the first iPhone's recessed headphone jack (not including, of course, the earbuds that came with it). At that time, though, Apple had the power of offering the first smartphone of its kind--there weren't any other choices for a smartphone like that then. (Still, though, I thought it took some chutzpah to release with that...
After it was revealed that Apple's upcoming MFi (Made for iDevices) specifications would include digital audio output (48kHz stereo) and digital audio input (48kHz mono), Forbes reported that the iPhone 6 would abandon the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. (Forbes later added a question mark to the headline, acknowledging that the article was more an informed an opinion that a fact.) And Forbes was certainly not alone in at least suggesting that the iPhone 6 might not include...
 I'm sorry you feel that way, Lachlan. But if you feel me unethical, I can understand why you're leaving for good. Bye.
 This is your opinion, and I'm sure some agree with you; but I'm just as sure many do not. And that's what I'm saying: this community is full of people who can individually decide for themselves whether or not I am to be trusted. If you think I'm the only forum owner who posts reviews, you're wrong. I don't lie in reviews for anyone, but you can choose not to believe that. Perhaps that you feel I reflect badly on the forum as a whole is the reason you said goodbye (and...
 And, still again: That such a self-crowdfunding campaign is run through a crowdfunding site doesn't make it any different to me than if someone posted a thread in the forums to say, "I'm a reviewer, please send me money to buy gear to review, and possibly even to cover some of my living expenses. You can PayPal me at paypal@acme.com," which is a type of thread neither I nor any of the other moderators here would allow. In my opinion, using a crowdfunding site doesn't make...
 It's not about a stream of constant crowdfunding pitches here. It's the fact that we wouldn't allow anybody to make a post that says: "I'm a reviewer, please send me money to buy gear to review, and possibly even to cover some of my living expenses. You can PayPal me at paypal@acme.com." Again, if someone wants to ask people to send him money to buy gear and cover his living expenses, that's fine--but this is not the place it will happen. If you think I'm the only forum...
 And, once again: That such a self-crowdfunding campaign is run through a crowdfunding site doesn't make it any different to me than if someone posted a thread in the forums to say, "I'm a reviewer, please send me money to buy gear to review, and possibly even to cover some of my living expenses. You can PayPal me at paypal@acme.com," which is a type of thread neither I nor any of the other moderators here would allow. Using a crowdfunding site doesn't make it any...
And for what it's worth, this was about self-crowdfunding campaigns being posted on Head-Fi (as a component of another discussion/topic), and I stand by my position on it, which I discussed in a PM recently:
