This is far too good for PMs.



Oh, and ingwe, I'd like to take this chance to say I not only like your posts, but that I love your signature. I've watched it slowly become more elaborate. Best signature of any Head-Fier.

Ok so the OP questions the design of the amp this is really a good time to discuss the relative merits of the design or the flaws of the design. Going toe to toe on his purported reasons for the thread is pure conjecture. Since I do not have a background in amp design I can not speak to the Raptors design merits. I had one at the house for a few months and it did not appeal to me but that is my preference only.

Also can we take off the tin foil hats for a moment and stop crying foul at any and every post that gets deleted. Geez the fact that the original post and this thread is still active is an indication that you can raise questions about ALL manufactures.

I do know that every action has a reaction, and I've reacted in a way that I think will be best for all involved.

This is my last post on Head-Fi.
This is grandstanding at its finest, if you are going to leave then just leave no need to grandstand. What the @#$^ is with the recent trend of folks being overly dramatic with grandiose exits. This is like the third or fourth thespian exit I have seen in the past 4-5 months.

Also jumping the gun at every post deletion is trigger happy how about waiting to see how things play out prior to crying cover up AREA 51!!!

And why a post unless out of context, rude, or inappropriate, needs to be deleted in the first instance, in other threads I have seen, where designs of other manufacturers were questioned, and not with very good intentions neither, and even bashed, with no other valid reason than merely speculations, IIRC, not a single of those posts have been deleted....

Censorship is censorship. We don't have to wait to decide whether certain things deserved to be censored. Do we need a benevolent watchdog to decide what we can and can't read or say? It might be time to dust off your copy of 1984.

It is soaked with insinuations, but I will not say anything more on the matter.

Best wishes ASR, hopefully you refocus on what is important and return at some point in the future.

I'm really close to dumping this thread. First, when folks start trolling or looking for a flame war, those posts get deleted. In addition to those posts getting deleting, so too go the posts which refer to them. As Jude pointed out, the thread was accidently deleted. When I caught the error, I moved it back but not before deleting 2 posts which were nothing but flame war material. They added nothing to the debate.

This thread should be regarding the circuit and nothing but the circuit, as the OP originally questioned. If the OP intended on causing an outburst among various camps, then the thread should be dumped. Is that what this is all about? It seems so from follow up posts from the OP.

How about this. From this point on, posts are on topic or everything gets canned. No conspiracy, no 1984. You've been warned. Those bemoaning censorship should look it up in the dictionary. They should also look up private and website.

ASR, thanks for playing.

While I am against censorship, remember that head-fi isn't the government, it is a forum owned by a business. We use it's services until its disservices chase us somewhere else - head-fi fails. While debate on the topic is certainly good in the situation, lets not let draw parallels to such a great book. By drawing such a weak comparion you demerit the lesson of the book itself.

edit, this was posted before I read the previous reply. Delete if you must..

With all due respect, you have no idea what you are talking about here. You are not a moderator, you don't know what posts are and are not deleted.

Oh, and BTW, you're just plain wrong too.

The only post I ever had deleted was an off-topic witticism that was either deemed to be too off-topic, insufficiently witty or both. I have no reason to complain about how this forum is managed.

In principle, some degree of censorship is entirely acceptable and even desirable. Freedom for 'anything to go' includes the freedom to create private places where not everything goes. Otherwise you have an enforced standard of freedom that takes away the very freedom it purports to create.

Just my 2 cents.

What I'd like to say is not directed to the OP, but to people planning to do reviews on products. Be honest, 100% honest, whether it be a minor flaw which you think might not be of any concern to yourself but it might be to others.
I understand, sampling amps is not that convenient of economical. But 1400USD is alot of money, even according to the OP, so perhaps diving in that deep just based on reviews is alot.

As an aside, I personally found the interpretation that this was a referendum against RS kind of ironic in a way because I think the OP was satisfied with the actual business transaction that occurred which kind of is encouraging to RSA as a business.

But it is kind of difficult either way, I can guess that if too many users do purchase/return it can become a "amp trying" program on the expense of mostly, i think, the seller.

Without going on a tangent too much, I remember sometime back there was a similar issue with Meier Audio and a user complaining of music leaking along with the actual return process which did seem to attract alot of attention and quite a few users saying they faced the same technical issues of a certain line of amplifiers.

Anyways, the conclusion is the same, users should report their issues here even if it means swallowing some personal pride that perhaps they invested in something that they are not 100% happy with. Of course, the downside is that it might be interpreted to be an attack and set off multi page debates on censorship and integrity.
