This is not what Head-Fi is all about.
Some of what you say is true, GS, but unless you guys have a bad history, I don't see why the words had to be so condescending and harsh.
Please Aaron don't let the "real monkey" ruin the spirit of Xmas, I don't care of how offensive this guy could be, we are all celebrating this holidays, in family, in peace, and happy, right now I'm having a cup of a nice wine, before going for a nice lunch...And listening the RP33, having a real nice audition. OTOH you will have the pleasure of hearing it pretty soon.....
And BTW and sorry to disagree a little bit with you, but I don't see anything on what he had stated to be true, (maybe the Nelson Pass stuff, and I'm not even sure of that neither, I'm not a DIYer, nor a knowledgeable guy in electronics to state that, and Rudi had never stated such thing to me neither) But "just for the records", and the same way as while I was stating my impressions on the RP31, and he did the same BS, I had never stated the RP33 as the best amp in the planet, just the best of the ones I have heard, which is 100% true (and not even that, I have not heard my new PPA yet, it is on the way to me.....)
OTOH, I do consider that there are a lot of nice old members, more qualified that this guy, to review the RP33, and whatever he said after on, based on those assumptions above, was absolutely uncalled for, and wrong...period...but the intelligence and tact, you need to be prudent in life, are virtues that not everybody has, what can we do about that?....OTOH the arrogance is a defect that is becoming a bad habit very frequent here...
What is happening to head-fi, eh? Where are Nick Dangerous, Kelly, Hirsch, Neruda, and all those real nice guys who used to post a lot, they are simply maybe sick of the BS, offenses and flame wars that they read here everyday, for every single reason.....
