Absolutely, and I made no value judgements. I completely agree that only any individual buyer can make such a judgement.
Also, I encourage you to differ with my opinion of the LCD-3. Please do, if that's how you hear it. But your saying my review is hampered by the quality of my electronics is simply untrue, and so sure, it touched a "nerve". My electronics are more than capable. Just because YOU prefer something else does not mean that I didn't hear the LCD-3 well.
And again, for the record, I did point out shortcomings with the LCD-3's soundstaging and suggested that people who prioritize soundstage should look elsewhere. Perhaps you missed that.
So let your opinion of the LCD-3 fly, please. That's all good. But disparaging my gear isn't justified or warranted just because you prefer something else.
