I'm a little confused about having been rude. It was not my intention to offend. A link was posted to comments about the Stratus on another site and I merely pointed out that I disagreed and urged the poster asking the question about those findings to consider the opinion of those who actually own the amp being critiqued. Seems scientific enough to me. I never meant to disrespect others' findings - although I must say that I do find the reference to enthusiastic support of the Stratus as the work of *fanboys* to be rude. So I merely wanted to point out that that criticism could leveled at anyone who expresses enthusiasm for any product, so be careful. Also, for reference, I have owned or currently own the ZD, the ECSS, and now two iterations of the BA - and I am a big fan of Craig's work - so I am somewhat familiar with the EC sound to which the Stratus was largely being compared. Never would have occurred to me to call any contributions of EC threads the work of *fanboys* that's all.

That's just not how I saw it. I feel you just missed the context of those comments.
Purrin didn't even bash the Stratus, he simply said it was slightly muddier than x amp.
Your response was 1. It's all hearsay (how is that anyway, it's not a discussion on a prototype, they actually heard the amp)...
2. Anyone commenting on the Stratus doesn't own it (you certainly seemed to be implying some point there)
3. It was all meet conditions (which I have to wonder if it even was, or if that's all speculation on your part)
4. Those who haven't heard the amp rolled with HD800 should categorically not comment (how that isn't outright rude?)
My point being you came off as an ass to me. Intended or not.
It did not seem like you had an differing opinion, but rather you were out to discredit any contrary finding's to your own.
Just want to clear the air, so you can see where I saw things coming from. I know you're not really an ass, nor
am I trying to pick a fight or argue.
On another note, my HD800's should be arriving tomorrow. Quite excited to find out
if I like 'em this go 'round.
