welcome back, Stan!  How was the Indian?  Seriously, I'm jealous.  When I lived closer to DC, we had Indian to beat the band.  Now, I gotta try to convince my wife she's gonna love it.

 

I think you missed most of HiFi's rants, as he seems to have come back, stoned, and edited them to what you see now.  Honestly, I couldn't follow most of it (nothing new there :D), but I was hoping you'd jump in with some EE-grounded rationality.  Ain't no EE, but I hear grounding is kinda important.

I wondered why his posts were brief, he does like to wear down the old keyboard.

The Indian was great, my wife was gaining weight as I watched her pour down a couple of Mango Lassies. All I could think about was ending it with some Ras Malai.

What do you think of HiFI's sex change operation?

I will get those 701 pads....eventually, sometimes as my wife says, I move in another dimension of time, not space.

Rookie, have you actually heard any of the Blue circle amps in person or are you going off of the reviews purely?

Are you sure it was a sex change?  I'm imagining some implants.  Annnnnnnnd I'll let you run with that one :D

 

re: pads, Nimrod... Nimzerz has only himself to blame for turning me into a fisherman ;)

Just above your post I see this:

 

When it comes to listening, the human imagination is more powerful than reality.

Don't worry HiFi we luv ya.

I hope he doesn't get too mad at us and get some tattoos and body piercings.

I think I had too much Vindaloo, I'm starting to hear noise and I don't have my headphones on.

It took you that long to notice?

Even I am subject to that rule.

Here's a picture of my grill modded HE-500s. They look kinds dodgy, but they sound great.

Oh no, that's a great sig.  Saw it quite some time ago, of course.  I just found it applicable to the question posed to HiFi (we love you, man!).

lol but seriously, has he actually heard any of their products though? Not teasing him or anything. Just an honest question. I personally have lost all my faith in big online review sites like Whathifi or Stereophile a long time ago. They rarely have any bad reviews. I remember on Whathifi (or was it Stereophile? hmmm) a while back there was a budget based review. You know, the kind where they list the top speakers from each price range. Within the same price range itself, on pretty much each of their product review in that range it stated "best speaker I've heard in this price" - they say that for every speaker. LMFAOOOOOOOO get the falafel outta here.

 

I trust our community members more, although even within them, I'd still listen firsthand myself to the model. If not the model, then at least something in the brand to get some kind of idea on it's value, construction, design, sound etc.

More open is pretty great, and those are pretty open.  Given there's no dust shield (that I can see), I assume the grill is just to keep out blunt objects.  What did you use?  It looks like mini-chain link fence spray painted black.

It may not be refined but it's not crook. It looks safe enough for the sprogs. Thurston will probably tell you to paint the grills red.

It's probably because the human imagination has less jitter and a higher sampling rate.

I thought adding a cloth would defeat the whole purpose. I figure I'll just clean them if they get dusty. It was a $3 bin lolol :D

Or more jitter and a higher sample rate.

Yes, it's a perfectly fair question.  I'm still betting on Stan's sig ;)

 

re: reviews, at least here you'll get all sorts of opinions, many of them expressed cogently, with what seems to be a lot of experience to back them up (I'm lookin' at you, Stan! ;-)  If you take the time to read them and do other basic research, it's possible to make a good decision.  But yeah, demoing all the way, if possible.  If not, bite the bullet, and hope you can sell it on if it doesn't work out.
