Now you see, I'm actually glad there are not one but two months that begin with A, as it meant we were able to do Aping Argyris' Avatar April last year as a sub-theme. Seeing the avatar from Audiophiliac April above reminded me of that. The announcement for that month's themes is still up in the OP, too!
Lol, that old chestnut? I think we're gonna have to do Aping Argyris' Avatar April just for you this year.
Although, you could have meant "weekday" as well, so it works on both levels right?
And here I was, ready to transplant your face into every frame of the 'Regulate' music video...
Well, I'll let billy and a_rec chime in here...
Yes. One of our main goals is to make high-end headphone audio fun, cool and schmexy... three things that you'll notice (especially if you've been to any meets lately) that our hobby could use. In doing so, we try to cover things without much of an agenda. Anything we think is worthy of being talked about, from music to gear to the state of the hobby, is fair game.
And while some of us have been journalistically trained in a past or adjacent career, we're trying to shy away from that. This is why most of our viewpoints tend to be voiced as enthusiasts and hobbyists, devoid of journalistic aspirations.
FWIW, we're trying to avoid that cycle. To date, we have not accepted a penny of revenue, ad-based or otherwise, and we have no intention of even thinking about in the immediate future. In fact, we have had no less than 4 manufacturers approach us to date, unsolicited, offering to pay for ad space. All have been politely declined.
The "ads" that you see on Audio360 are banners that we have elected to put up, in advocacy of gear that we have heard and like. As such, there are no advertisers to speak of, at least none that give us any money or compensation in any way. If you see a banner on the site, that says rather simply "we like this gear." Nothing more, nothing less.
I believe so, though joker's new site is pretty kick ass! I'm a fan for sure!
