Again, it's the criticism of those in favour. Why am i (or a few others with similar opinions) suddenly a "cable fan" and why must it be my ego in question here? Surely the "no difference" group has just as big an ego since they also came in droves to express their opinions. One group believes in one thing and another in the other. Each has their say. Why is one more desperate than another?
As for "break-throughs" i don't see many about. But what i was talking about was new models (i guess that's the right word). If they can bring out new models, i assume that means some kind of change over the old. If it's all bs then what need is the new? It's expensive to re-tool and manage stock. If the old bs sells then why go through all that crap?
And talking about wasting time, i've always recommend that one takes advantage of borrowing from dealers to test things out. Probably saves time looking at plots and graphs and all sorts.
