But let us not start a a fight in this thread...it will bring no new info until other reviews confirm or negate what has been said so far. I for one wish these reviews to be accurate, because I would gladly buy a ciem close to perfection.
Because I've had personal discussions with Project86 and know how level headed, open minded and sincere he is. LOL, I sound like a groupie.
Kunlun's review was not sensational in the least. He's also quite been around the block but I'm aware he may like more bass than I do. I've also had somewhat heated disagreement with him as well.
Sorensiin has been been very forth coming in the past but I know his and Wizards idea about sound jive.
That's the known quantity part.
I can take this all into consideration and not have any issue with these reviews what so ever. Only Project86 is a pro reviewer and he is PC in his opinions while still giving the us a product's strong and weak points. I don't begrudge the others for perhaps being excited about their new toys. If they didn't like them, that joy of discovery would be more tempered. It's not like they don't have other costly devices they could default back to.
Of course, more review's will come and also be appreciated regardless of opinion. For now, I have a reviewer I trust that likes the 8c a lot. Doesn't mean that I will like them as much but it's certainly encouraging.
Do we have to review the reviewers before we can accept an opinion. These weren't written by Swinsonny.
