Well, I thought it was kind of directed towards me too, with statements like, you sound like a shill, you sound like a liaison, Congratulations with the deal, as if I was have received the first prototype Compass and was going to sell it in the market looking for profits. Maybe I overreacted, maybe I should have just ignored, but then I did find it too personal.
It is true by nature I am very friendly and I love to communicate, whether it be my EBay purchases and sales, or out here, to me I find it as a way to gather as much information, I have tons of correspondence with Mr Wong (wsz0304) about ZERO, even more with his assistant Cathy, through which I know the background of ZERO and what may be coming up next.
The same goes with Kingwa, I have bought stuffs from him before, I am buying now and I plan to buy more in future in pursuit of my passion – In the process, I have personally found him very friendly, ready to advice and very knowledgeable and it helps me a lot in my cause.
I personally cannot help but trust a businessman who when asked for advice to whether go for a combination of DAC100 and ST3 or Compass, is advised to go for Compass, when the combination of the former would bring in twice as much to his pockets, I cannot help a trust being developed such a person.
Since I correspond with him, like I do with everyone in the process of making a purchase and gathering knowledge about the product, and also since Compass yet hasn’t hit the market, no one has seen or been reviewed, I do not address my question about Compass on the forum, but directly to him – his answer is usually very quick, and all I am doing is passing the information that I have gathered personally to the forum, I am NO WAY being asked by anyone to do so, its the feeling of a community that makes me do so.
Yes, I personally believe it is true, that he makes his products with passion and puts in his best effort to perfect the product, through my correspondence with him, I also know that he is tinkering with the idea of including a custom made power cable with every Compass for the first batch, as he believes his products are very critical to power cables in bringing out the best, so if I shared this information with the community, would it mean I am a some kind of SHILL and Liaison??.. It takes effort to write, time to correspond and I was only doing this passing of information for the feeling of community.
I understand I have taken enough space again, what I don't understand is why, sharing of information or personal perspectives and impressions is deemed as marketing, so I wont write any further and stick to Compass, which this thread is all about..
