Well. I have no special ties to Dimitri apart from the fact that he's been impeccable to deal with. But what you're doing here may well be considered slandering, therefore I can't leave it uncommented. (Sorry @rawrster for going temporarily off-topic in your thread.)
"He did not get this from the manufacturers or the driver maker" - You obviously have no way of knowing where he gets his information from.
"he was also the origination of Final Audios being MAs which was a complete falsehood" - Utterly wrong. That was my own false conclusion when I A/Bed the Final Audios against the e-Q7 and thought they sounded eerily similar. Dimitri even expressed his doubts about my assumption, but said he didn't know for sure. Btw I've long since openly apologized for my mistake and corrected my review.
"He doesn't sell Grado" - and yet the GR10 reviewed in this very thread have been bought from him.
"it's advantageous to think them identical at a lower price just like it was to think Finals some new technology" - AFAIK you've never talked to the man yourself and not once in our conversations did he claim that Final Audios were some new technology.
Like I said, I have no special ties to the man. But honestly, did it ever occur to you, that your repeated and adamant clutching at every straw to point out significant differences between the GR10 and other (cheaper) MAs might make a lot of folks wonder about your own relationship to Grado? Oh, and one more thing: I've openly apologized for my mistake, maybe you should also consider apologizing to Dimitri.
Again, sorry rawrster, sometimes there are things that just have to be said. I will not comment further on this matter.
Wow James, your post is so much not like you. In a way it reminds me - only a little, let me make that very clear - of that rather nasty character, music_4321. And since your post is nothing like the james444 we've all come to know, I'll do something that is very unlike music_4321 - yes, it's emoticon time!
