Chicolom, they specifically quote your post you made here.
Apparently some guy who says hes a guitarist thinks nobody on this site knows anything about basic audio circuits.
Lol not sure if I should start a separate thread for this.
In the best case, we'll all debate this in a civil fashion and all come out the wiser for it.
But we're starting to head toward the worst case, where people start flinging insults and FUD at the other side, just making a mess of things. I can already see it happening in that post's comments...from the site owner/video guy himself, no less.
Of particular note is this bit:
It's sad to see so many of you ready to agree with someone from head-fi. I really try to stay away from head-fi. There are some great users on there... but there are a zillion shills and a zillion morons as well. So, I avoid it as much as possible.
Another commenter directly responded:
lol no offense, but its so funny how you trying to labeling some as morons and shills.. if thats the case we have to abandon youtube and many other sites as well... may be we have to live in a cave to get away from those so called shills and morons...
This is why people shouldn't really brand entire communities, especially as the head of communities themselves. Each one comes with its good and bad folks, and no community is perfect.
I think one of the problems is that people have this absolutist attitude regarding their preferences, particularly regarding the virtual surround-vs.-stereo debate. Instead of going "I disagree, and here's why", there's a general vibe of "You're flat-out WRONG and you should be doing exactly as I do" flying about. By the way, that's not something that applies strictly to this debate, but any debate in general.
