I believe it is exactly the opposite. His taking donations to fund his reviews obligates him to do exactly as he did. Tell the truth. If he's being paid by LH to advertise their product, that's different. and if that is true, then Lachlan is of very little use to me. I can just look at the ads on stereophile.com if that's what I want. Are you insinuating that what he said wasn't true? If so, I expect to see some substantiation. If not, then I just totally disagree with you.
