I find this thread funny the same way I found it funny when everyone could not wait to bash the new shuffle. I was there because I had an interest in it (3g Shuffle). And 6 months later I still love it. Works great with my 4i, and I just throw it in my gym bag. Super small, and I can listen to my gym music while working out, and Miles on my walk home. And when running I could easily navigate without taking the player off. I was interested in that thread because I had an interest in the product. The people who were writing it off never took the time to even care how somebody else may use it. Unfort. I had to sift thru all the BS from people that never owned it, just to get some simple facts.
Same deal here. There are so many products on Head-fi that I have no interest in... HD800, HiFIMAN, Zune HD, and there are a bunch more. But the thing is you won't find me anywhere in those threads. Wouldn't it make more sense to spend YOUR time examining/ commenting on products you are interested in?
Surely you don't think your carefully
worded posts are adding anything to anything? We can at least agree on that, right?
