Hmmm.. I never realized this.

At least we will have peace and no more flame in the other thread.

makes no sense... Hotaudio makes some decent sounding amps. would think he would find head-fi helpful to his business.

I remember seeing a post somewhere, forgot which thread, where there was a heated exchange between HotAudio40 and some other headfi'ers in regards to his products. During the course of it he posted a bunch of all caps posts and asked to be banned.

Can't seem to find those posts anymore, I assume they were deleted.

I did manage to read them...great fun reading!

Too bad, Dave at hotaudio is a great guy with incredible customer service! A great Winnipegger with great products!

His stuff seems to get quiet a bit of good feedback here as well.

good riddance!

I'm all for fanaticism and unbiased opinions, but this kid had issues.
post #712 of 771
Well, the only thing I care about is whether the amps/dacs are good or not.

So, who else here has an extasy?
post #713 of 771
This is probaly a stupid question, just making sure, but I'm assuming the Hotaudio DAC Extasy is a major step-up over some old Creative X-Fi gaming sound card?

Yes we all have issues, but some people around here also seem to have a problem with freedom of speech in some specific cases (*cough* when it turns out a Hotaudio product is cheaper and better than one of Head-fi's sponsor's flavor of the month products)

Okay, I aim to do something about that nagging cough of yours, so I'm going to comment here, because I've seen userlander spout off the same stuff. This seems to be the mantra adopted by a couple of Hotaudio proponents (and maybe the company itself here and/or in its own forums), but it's imbecilic.

So let me ask: Are you serious?

Search these forums. Been around here much? Look at the Sponsor list. Are you seriously suggesting that nothing negative has been posted about products manufactured or sold by those companies?

Grado Labs--through its collaboration with TTVJ on the Grado HF1 and HF2--has probably sent more money to Head-Fi than any other single entity to date. Have you never read a negative review or a negative comment about a Grado product on Head-Fi? Or Sennheiser? Or Shure? Or Sleek Audio? Or Klipsch? Or Ultimate Ears? Or V-MODA? Or Westone? HeadRoom has been a Sponsor since 2001, as has Meier Audio--have their products never been compared unfavorably to products of others?

On the other side of that: How many products are praised and lauded here that are by manufacturers who have never sent a single penny in for advertising? Think of headphones and IEMs, think of DACs, think of amps, etc., etc. Countless.

Your post? Absurd. <sarcasm>Yes, RazorJack (and userlander), all of the moderators here are carefully monitoring any discussions having to do with your favorite manufacturer, because if we don't keep its growing greatness in check, it might overtake the entire audio industry, leaving Head-Fi with only one potential sponsor.</sarcasm> Get a grip, guys. Quit with your conspiracy theories, stay on topic, understand that some may love what you love, others will not like what you love at all, and then maybe others in the community will take you more seriously.

Well said. Userlander had some serious issues and everywhere he posed it turned into a fight. The entire Shanling PH100 thread was deleted because of his flame wars - a real shame given there was a lot of informative posts in that thread.
post #716 of 771
^^Can someone sticky that post?

Seriously guys, a forum is for people to share opinions. There is no obligation for anyone to agree with every single review out there.

Back to the topic of his amps now, I seem to be struggling to find impressions of the extasy dac. Maybe I'm just not searching in the right place. And I'm wondering how this would sound with the UE18pros.

I've seen many questioning the absence of inside pics and no real answer.
post #718 of 771
I have the Thunderbolt Max amp and it sounds very good, esp for the size. Im not keen to open it up and take a peek inside tho.
post #719 of 771
Hey angle, glad to know you're happy with it.
I don't think anyone is expecting the end-users to provide the pics.
post #720 of 771
I am very curious about whats in the extasy since owners rate it very highly.
