wow, my name 11 times in one post, fancy!
once again lou, it wasn't meant as a personal attack, more that the topic has been discussed ad nauseum, and while your opinion is as valid as any one else's, there's not much point it posting an essential flame to a group of people here with out any substantial info. that's all i'm saying.
and, btw, as many here know, i don't claim to know a hell of a lot about audio. but i will share my opinions. i applaud you for doing the same, just don't start a new thread each time.
