Dear Headfellows,

I just wanted to let you know that Michael and I smoked our pipe of peace.

We agreed that Michael will change his website and provide you with instructions on how to make your own passive crossfeed filter. I've contributed some of my own tricks to improve sound quality, so you will be provided with an up-to-date design (soon).

Please understand that Michael no longer provides assembled units.

Cheers,

Jan

Wow, I'm really glad to hear the matter has been resolved peacefully. I followed both threads on the subject, but chose not to reply because I didn't feel I really had anything I could add.

This is good news

I'm glad to know you guys were able to work things out in a civilized manner. Whatever was in that pipe, I'd like to get some.

I always thought highly of both pinkfloyd and Jan...

Shame that it had blown up into a major forums war and shame on everyone who blasted either jan or PF.

I think some people need a lesson on when to shut up - everyone thinks they are too smart for their own good - especially the guy who told PF "I dont care if you stay or go...your ego...you think you are a major part of HeadFi"

Well - I think he is a big part of HeadFi

I am a big fan of Jan Meier too and I am glad that this issue was resolved amicably with somewhat better results (improved sound
) than I could have hoped for.

The only people who lost my respect were among those who posted in both the original thread by Jan and the "apology" thread by PF. Some of these people have been added to my "ignore" list because I cannot believe someone could bash another member of the forums without adequate information.

Sad

Time to forgive, but not forget what we've learned from this.

Are you thinking of licensing production to anyone else, Jan?

really glad to see you guys patched things up. The 2 threads really surprised and disappointed me, so I am really glad things are all good again. I sadly don't know Jan but I do know Mike (PinkFloyd) and he is a very genuine and good guy.

Lets hope that we can continue to have a passionate and at the sametime harmonius atmosphere here at head-fi.

Does this mean that the existing X-feeds are now collector's items?


Glad to hear that everything has been settled.

It's not only peace, it's also a good day for Head-Fi and a lot of positive things have come out of it.

My website will feature simple to follow instructions (step by step with detailed photos) on how to build the lite version of the Jan meier standalone crossfeed along with tips and tricks on how to get the best out of it.

This will be along the lines of the meier X-Feed (as was) and will be helpful to DIY'ers who wish to make the unit for themselves.

I no longer construct these units so please don't ask. The instructions and pictures will be very simple to follow so anybody with a drill and a soldering iron will be able to make it.

It will feature the latest Jan Meier revisions and looks set to being a very nice sounding crossfeed indeed.

The last few days in this forum have been very unfortunate with a lot of remarks from people, including myself, which were pretty below the belt and totally uncalled for. People seemed intent on adding fuel to what turns out was a very small spark which has now been resolved to everyones benefit through an exchange of e-mails between Jan and myself.

I trust this will serve as a reminder that it is always worth waiting for the outcome before reaching a premature conclusion.

All the best.

Pinkie.

Apart from music, audio equipment and itself, I'd hope. Personally, I must have got it all wrong, anyway...
