Don’t bother if you’re not intending to include specific, accurate,unbiased and independently verifiable information explaining why you dislike each brand. Otherwise, it’s a meaningless and worthless exercise that merely would document all of the brands you have emotional, illogical and personal psychological reasons for disliking that I believe are more effectively explored and, hopefully, resolved in a more private and constructive manner.
Although I and others would likely find an open forum exploration of your personal experiences with certain brands, that almost certainly form the basis for your somewhat strong emotional response to certain of them, very interesting, wildly entertaining and with a constant and irresistible opportunity to post satirical comments of varying degrees of wittiness and humor, I still urge you to conduct this exploration of your psyche in private.
This private approach also has the advantage of not further exasperating the obviously very extensive emotional damage you’ve suffered at the hands of certain unnamed malicious audio brands and the odds of receiving significant financial remunerations from some or all of these corporations.
My crack team of high quality and priced lawyers will be contacting you soon to determine whether you have a solid case worth aggressively and immediately pursuing against any audio brand that inflicted injury upon you. Pro bono, of course.
Jokes on you guys. Read the post again. Carefully:
Got it? No? Okay, once more, this time with editorial comment, for you slow learners:

I know, I know, they are NOT paying me enough for this!
I can only speak for myself but my intention is not to direct hate toward Erik or anyone else. I don't know about everybody else's perceptions but I don't sense an abundance of hate fests or overly negative posts on this thread up to this point.
From my perspective, I'm having a pleasant enough experience participating on this thread discussion thus far and would enjoy and expect it to progress in its generally civil and constructive manner in whatever subject directions it naturally gravitates toward.
I usually don't respond to Erik's posts but this was such a masterful trolling effort that I can't help myself. Congratulations Erik. This was not only a clever post and thread starter, it shows once again that many forum participants don't read the whole thread before they post. Millercarbon nailed it and I'm pretty sure I know why avsjerry is ROTFLMAO. Several hooks have been set in the fleshy cheeks of Audiogon fish and Erik is sitting back adjusting the drag on the reel........ here we go.
To use another analogy I appreciate a good punking. This sort of made my day.
Oh, BTW, I don't like Crosley. Yeah, that's right, I really don't like those stupid looking record players for Barnes & Noble rubes. If I could make those cheap-ass turd piles illegal I would. Every time I see one I lift up the platter and pour sand in the gears (I carry a small bag of sand for this purpose). They are as ugly as a stomped possum and it just pisses me off to look at them. OK, I've never heard one but even the idea of such a monstrosity is more than I can take. See Erik, now you've ruined my whole day. God, those record players suck.
@noble100 ....*G* Sorry, old 'net abbreviation....or 'aberration', if you prefer..;)
Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Ass Off
Why? I interpreted Eric's 'opener' as the equivalent of tossing a shiny lure into the water without bait. Sure enough, the fish hit it and ran....
(You will notice he's not followed up with Any comments....*G*)
Mijostyn +1 Anyone who reads every word of every post probably has too much time on their hands. I like Erik's post in general, but sometimes don't feel like reading every single solitary word. And to those who are so clever they had to "read shame" the rest of us, well, you know, since you are so clever.
@marqmike ....She's touring in the UK currently, but is going to be in Atlanta in April 1 & 2...*S* Going to add her to my list of BluesGrrls I've had the pleasure to see IRL.... 👍😁
Used to have this little box with LED's that would either give you VU or RMS power...the latter was instructive as to how much actual wattage was being delivered to the speakers. Most of the time, you'd be running below 1~1.25, but the peaks could 'flick' up substantially....
At the time I was running 150 a side. Never got that high on the read-out; couldn't stand to be in the room (12 x 20, 10 ceiling)....*L*
I haven't owned anything with meters since my Revox A77...and that's been awhile...*G*
@jollygreen....Pardon me, I handle my anger quite well, thank you veddy much....*G* The bumper stick on my car that states:
DEATH TO ALL WHO OPPOSE ME
is a mild warning....I let most survive...’physically’, anyway....*L*
But, that’s what happens when one grows up with LA freeways, and has learned to cope with various metromadness combat traffic. ;)
