I didn't pitch it, as you put it. You say that because you were pitching Xiangsheng left-right and center whether it was appropriate or not, ie: in threads that had nothing to do with them. Now you are going around slagging them off in the same manner because of your customer issue.
Since you mention the Compass, and since other people will read this: I encouraged its creation in the hope it would replace the popular but troublesome Zero with a reliable alternative and be something at an entry level price. That didn't quite happen. Since then quite a few seemingly good products from a few companies have appeared which fulfil that (NuForce, iBasso and Head Direct/Hifiman come to mind), so it's moot. I don't judge companies on my experience, or single experiences alone, something which you might consider.
