jkeny, nobody said audioengr was wrong for saying he noticed some technical quirks on the usbface. He misquoted me when I was referring to the fact that we shouldn't read too much into the fact that audio-gd is using the m2tech hiface as a reference. It is very obvious we should have opinions from non-companies about how competing products work. I AM NOT SAYING ANYTHING AGAINST CRITICISM, JUST SAYING WE SHOULDN'T READ TOO MUCH INTO AUDIO-GD'S USE OF HIFACE AS THEIR TEST BENCHMARK.
In an analogy, it's like a politician who says he's going to find out if he's better than his rival politicians for the job, then withdraw from running if he finds out one of his rivals is a better candidate. Obviously voters should do research themselves and come to their own conclusions, not trust that politician 100% or accuse him of sleazy self-promotion. I am not in any way suggesting audioengr and Jocko have no right to criticize flaws they see in the (current prototype) usbface. It is constructive criticism to point out things like wrong ohm connectors, or their preference for less overbuilt circuitry..
Apparently audioengr, and also others, mistook my "don't take it as unbiased" statement regarding audio-gd's use of hiface as an attack on any criticism on gear. Can't help but shake my head at all the miscommunication on this forum :(.
