Thread Starter 
Since you lost the argument, now you want to show me power? Since you can't compete with me neither with your words nor with your ears, so you want to bully me?

I haven't really posted anything on diyah after my recent posts. And even then I haven't been asking you directly. Questions are open to those who wish to answer. If everybody wants to just ignore me, let everybody make that decision individually rather than you forcing that decision onto them.

you are way out of line with that comment.

and i wonder if you are familiar with the phrase.... "the pot calling the kettle black".

you have been given advice and just chose to ignore it. IMO

Sorry Rem0o. You can read his ramble on DIY Audio where he just wouldn't stop and he's doing the same here. bigsmile_face.gif

Big generalisations and assumptions.

He does this in every thread he's been in and has been chased out of 90% of them. I've seen his foolishness over there at DIY Audio and just laughed to myself... He sure does get around to annoy others.

 

I am amazed that he spent $850... must have bought every 12AU7 off eBay cause you just know they ALL sound different... I forgot he can hear into the MHz range... :D

 

I really think he is somebodies "Sock Puppet" put here and over at DIY audio to torment us....

Possibly a Garage1217 fanboy... :veryevil:

I'm admin over on DIYAH and I've had quite a few pm's complaining so I had to say something. He's been driving people nuts .... even pm'ing me with a copy of his posts!! Enthusiastic but uninformed I'm afraid.

having trialled and bought  the Project Ember i would not mind being called a "Garage1217 fanboy", myself. (fantastic quality/value product)

But the behaviour techboy has shown is plain ODD.

trouble is it is only him that cannot see it.

i kept quiet until he accused Ian of talking BS.

just dont accept that.

He comes across to me as quite arrogant and uninformed, also the disdain for anything that is not Garage1217 is quite peculiar as well.

Ok so if I understand properly, he reviewed a 500$ headphone amp with 300$ worth of tubes as a preamp, praising the hell out of it powering 300$ speakers.

 

Then, he ask if his 300$ of tubes are a good value.

 

Then, he says tube rolling does a huge difference and benefits his setup, so he answers his first question by himself.

 

Then he go full on ODD mad mode.

Still don't get the point of this thread.

Well, I try very hard to be honest, but also be fair to the product and I find it quite irresponsible to make generalisations based on listening on mediocre gear.

The Ember is a superb amp that performs really well. Jeremy works very hard in order to provide a really good value piece of kit, which has been designed by a guy I feel is a genius in electronics. In fact, a very understated guy who is then trying to keep calm and polite with the inane outbursts of this fella in India who runs ramshackle all over the thread.

Then after being asked, then told, he starts to tell me how little I know?

While I'm all for experimentation with valves, $300 is a bit ott followed by probably, quite inaccurate descriptions.

Seems like someone is trying to justify his 800$ investment.

Looks that way. However, I think the guy is genuine but just misinformed. Friendly enough but unfortunately has annoyed quite a few DIYAH people with incessant comparison. He did start it here too. I tried to get him to stop to absolutely no avail. He continued like a steam train and wouldn't listen.

In fact, I was trying to save him money and had he been less of a pain, I would have sent him some free valves to try, but not now!!

I 'emulated' his set up since I have a pair of those speakers. I also used them with the Ember to see what he was going on about. I was replying to him in the light of the same experience, except I used a better sub. A Rel.

My point was that the subtleties of tubes just wasn't being shown that much through that kind of set up. Once I said that, as far as he was concerned, I'm deaf and he has golden ears?

He was going on about the image not being good with the Ember in line. I thought he was wrong since the gear doesn't produce a great image anyway. Therefore I felt he was being a little unfair to the amp while the designer sat there and said nothing since he probably felt it best to stay quiet. Jeremy too.

It made me realise that the guys who design and sell gear are really at the mercy of uninformed and sometimes irresponsible reviewers.

Well, he wasn't aware that I was doing the same and could actually test what he was saying!

I have the pleasure of owning a Sunrise II, Starlight, and Ember, two of which I built. I listen to them with Grado, AKG, and Beyers. Now, granted, they are NOT the state of the art stuff that techboy uses.

 

Maybe we should rationalize him as light entertainment, like the court jester?

post #30 of 32
regular_smile%20.gif That's how I felt at first until I realised that he wasn't going to stop. Then it wasn't so funny.

I think he's genuine in what he believes, but won't really take on what is said to him and just continues along the same old comparison railway Track. Kind of stuck in a groove, convincing himself more and more, telling people that what he says must be true because two friends could hear it.

I think he has meant well but doesn't realise the extent of how he has worn people down on my site with his incessant questions and tube comparisons.

Maybe I'm getting old and no longer have the patience? wink.gif

Nice enough chap but I went right off him when he told me we don't get on and I'm a bully. That did it for me.

I've had all three as well Mouser, but I really like what the Ember does. The dynamic range is enormous and I think I just like the 'tube' sound. Comparing it to some more expensive options reveals what a good value amp it is and the one I have is the prototype which Solderdude put together. One of my favourite amps now.
