  1. Yeah, far easier to believe he's a secret agent with an agenda in a niche consumer audio market....

    Far easier to believe than hes making money on ad revenue.
  3. I like "Russian agent" better. That plays great with the media.

    Seriously, some of you are so wacked out I dunno where to start.
  4. stimuz
    Wait, how do you think most of these sites make money with the page views they get?
  5. I know how ad revenue works. I also know screwed up little conspiracy theories about such things are insane. It surely doesn't account for the parade of products from multiple manufacturers rated across a spectrum of scores. The only evil plan is the one you're creating in your mind.

    I'm going to ignore you. I honestly don't believe you're mentally well.

    Are you sure it was the 789 & not the LCX that was lacking mids?

    Wow, it's already sold out.. even with the price hike to US$400 :triportsad:

    I have the LCD2 rev2 not the X. More than once I read that the 789 had the veil mids. I have been torn between buying the Jotunheim and the 789. Though I don't like the weird upper mids and treble on the Jot, if the 789's mids is veil compared to the Jot I think I will get the Jot. Sorry for my English.

    It sounds transparent to me. Maybe they are just nitpicking. Some of those guys have really critical ears.

    Its all good, I just wanted to check because some older posts on cetain forums people talk about both & its hard to follow which one the are refering to.
    I hated the Jot+[balanced dac] i bought ages ago, but in its defense it was poorly made to the point you could concider it broken. Mainly solder issues around the LED,volume pot & SE output, i'm sure there was more because the dac sound was very off toned. On the bright side i'm going to blow it up when the NFB-1 arrives in a few weeks.

    I think it's naive.

    They didn't bring the HD6XX price down. It's $220 now. It used to be $200.

    I don't know anything about it except it's seems to be slightly less powerful, cheaper and they hide some specs, which is not a good indication in my view.

    If the 789 has veil mids and the Jot has exaggerated mids that means that either one of them is over-amplifying mids or the other is under-amplifying them. But which is more neutral/truthful? Are there measurements for both of them?
