HE60 adapter question - Page 3

post #31 of 37

Jude still owns HF but Huddler took over part of the operations such as running the servers etc.  That's at least my understanding. 

 

I do think that every component marketed for the community should be opened and if needed, exposed for bad engineering practices.  That's the only way we can offer stop another TrevorNetwork, zzz, Single Power etc. fiasco.  This can and will dig up debates about whether or not some topology is a sound engineering choice or just somebody not knowing what they are doing but it is up to the customer to decide what they want.  They should however be fully informed and not just have the ad-copy from the manufacturer or some joke review from 6moons to help them let alone the legions of shills we have here. 

 

Now for the matter at hand, the pics aren't mine so they aren't mine to share.  I also didn't take any pics of the cables I worked on since I didn't see the point of taking them.  It's been well known for years just how badly made most of these aftermarket headphone cables are and yet they don't clean up their act.  As long as it sounds good then it is all good.

So, I guess because I have posted many largely positive reviews and comments on purchases I have made from Head-Fi vendors such as Whiplash Audio, Head-Direct, TTVJ, ALO, HeadAmp and non-Head-Fi sponsors like JHA, Sony, TTVJ and RSA I am now a shill because I did not have the skills, electronics background or even the desire to disassemble them and analyze to that level of detail how they are manufactured.  Nice. This is what I get for weeks of preparation and effort spent on writing up reviews that I thought would benefit the community even if they are not from an electrical engineer's perspective, which I do not have.  I am merely an enthusiast and I thought this was an enthusiast forum.

 

 Why is it that positive experiences about a product are now treated with skepticism, yet negative--and so far unfounded criticism--are applauded?  I have shared my experiences in my reviews purely on how the cables elevated my systems performance, which is why I have invested in them.  

 

Unlike you I do not have the ability to build amplifiers because of reasons mentioned above and also because my hands shake due to my auto-immune disease.  Can't even type accurately on my keyboard sometimes.  But that's my problem and because of it I have to rely on vendors to do build these things for me.  If a vendor tries to sell substandard product, it should be exposed with proof so that we can all learn from there, give them the opportunity to fix whatever the issue is, or take our business elsewhere if that doesn't happen.  

 

Head-Fi exists due to sponsor support.  Some of you guys have been here a lot longer than I have, but comments like this can drive small companies like that out of business because of the FUD factor.  If they produce crap, they should be exposed and may deserve to be driven out of business, but let's start a new thread or post in the Vendor/Sponsor feedback forum if we find issues and discuss it with respect and objectivity.

What are you talking about?

Indeed, what are you going on about? 

As for cables, I'm not going into that whole can of worms but I'll present one thing for you to consider.  Most of the more experienced users here who also own the most expensive gear do not invest in expensive cables and most often go with good quality DIY creations.  Why on earth would that be when money is clearly no issue and cables are so important?  This is certainly true for me, almost all of my cables are DIY and I'd rather spend my money on real improvements, better amp designs, better PSU designs, more linear sources to name a few.  This is after having owned some very expensive cables such as the Stealth Indra, Kimber Select etc.

Relax Warp08.  As long as you are truthful to yourself and truthful to others, you are fine.  That is what this forum is for.

warp - From what I can tell, spritzer made no claim that you are a shill. This comment was made for the site as a whole, not for any individual. No need to be defensive.

Indeed that is the case.
