... Each of us has a right to express our opinions in these forum threads and that should be respected, even if we don't agree. However, I see nothing wrong with gravitating towards the views of some rather than others, and to state this publicly if one feels so inclined without fear of retribution. That's why I feel compelled to support slaters70's qualitative assessment of ericp10's posts on this occasion...
Could this perhaps be the start of a new (healthier) relationship between you and me? I say this because I happen to agree with every single word quoted above.
My guess is you and I will never be buddies - I can live with that - but by the same token we cannot always disagree, and this is one of those rare occasions.
BTW, I'm not that far from becoming a Headphoneus Supremus myself. I must admit I detest the term and would gladly pass it along to someone like Voltag3 or one of the 'buddies' - I'm sure they'd appreciate a lot more than I would. My guess is that not so deep down you're not too keen on it, either.
So, maybe we do agree on more than one thing after all.
