When is it trolling? He was responding to a specific question about whether it's worth it to pay extra for cables.
This is just my two cents, but it seems like anytime someone expresses their opinion about cables on here where they're a non-believer they're automatically trolling. If they're a cable believer they're seen as sharing their experiences because cables are SO subjective nobody will tell them they're full of BS. Aren't double standards fun?
Thanks for your input Eurikan. I agree with you on many points, but I objected for different reasons. I have no problem with people not believing in better performance from expensive cables. To be honest, I probably fall into that camp. What I think was trolling was:
1) Not responding to the OP question which was about what cables someone would recommend, Not IF cables make a difference. Although there may be (in some peoples experience) no reason for expensive interconnects, I think most of us can agree it is worth getting something that has decent build quality and at least some cosmetic appeal rather than the cheapest plastic junk money can buy. In that spirit there is room for recommendations on some type of cable, even if it is monoprice or some other inexpensive equivalent that people like the feel and build quality of.
2) The short abrasive answer rude to the OP, especially when BLAKENEDPLAGUE's "about me" is "Back from banning with a better sense of respect." I think this response was anything but respectful.
I agree that people overuse accusations of trollling as a dismissive rebuttal, but in my perception the post was intended to be at least a little inflammatory,
Anyways, to get back on topic... I love this Schiit. The statement gear looks awesome. I am not sure they are in the cards in the near future. My money is going to analog gear at the moment. Maybe someday. For the time being I couldn't be happier with my Gungir / Mojo / Lcd-2 set-up. Whenever I get the upgrade bug I take a couple days off and when I put those headphones back on I am back to audio bliss.
