The PM-1 had a losing battle before it was even released, and that negativity more or less kept it's momentum upon release. Right now, no matter what it does right, people are going to shine a light on things if isn't as masterful with, like comparing it's soundstage to a headphone which is know to have arguably the best soundstage out there.
Really? For me the impression has been the opposite. The very statement above points that out - why do you or anyone who doesnt work for Oppo care if someone shines a light on the negatives? People need to realize that any criticism of a pair of headphones doesnt reflect on them or their tastes, and stop taking things so personally. Then most of this OT stuff will disappear.
