Haha the guy is a joke. All of the other reviews and owner impressions must be null and void now Everyone are entitled to their opinion but he does love to bash a CA IEM so I'd bare that in mind ... I'd trust his reviews about as much as I'd trust Gary Glitter to babysit my kids. A funny read though! The hatred runs deeeep.
I must say in his defence that, in the right context and situations, he's actually one of the most knowledgable, perceptive and capable people out there with respect to writing about and conveying nuances of sound in a way that appeals equally to one's head and heart. I've enjoyed many of his posts and his perspectives and, when taken at face value, his honesty. It also helps that he's a gifted writer. All of that said the approach he takes only really works when one is as objective as possible and I happen to know from first hand experience that he is at the centre of a notable grudge against Campfire Audio that has emanated, to one degree or another from a certain corner of the online audio community since around time the Solaris was released. On account of this I have a hard time taking anything he says about their products at face value. If he ever gets over this (and one or two other things) it would serve his credibility very well in my eyes.
