Yes, everything on the net is true. In fact Elvis lives about a block away from me, very close to the woman with the giant squash in the shape of the baby Jesus and Audio Research is owned by members of the former KGB.

Comrade, Viridian, Nyet, Nyet!
Viridian is only making a jokeski about us, er, I mean zee Ex-KGB, owning Audio Research! Ha Ha Ha! Very Funny, yes?!
Viridian, you don't seem to be answering the door.
Please let the nice men in zee black trench coats come in and help you. They are only wish to help you move in those large speakers you bought. (If you look out zee window, you will see the large coffin sized boxes in zee back of the white van.)
Viridian, be a nice tovarish, and open zee door now!
Finally your "voice"...
Glad hearing from you...
I happen to test-drive Bentley Continental '2005 coupe and found that despite it's all hand-made it's simply piece of s...t the way it's built(water leaks when rainy, suspention problems i.e. ball joints strats after only 9 kmi driving in Miami). Not even close to '91 Caddy Fleetwood Brougham'454 but costs 5x cheaper.
The point is that you shouldn't believe that folks who build speakers in their basement just by listening tests 'cause they might not sound great in your room. Who you should trust is the special labs that build speakers to a measured presicion of the sound.
Same thing to all other equipment you could ever think of...
So the algorithm is very simple:
TRUST=YES --> PERFORMANCE=GREAT --> PRICE=AFFORDABLE --> GET MERCHENDIZE.
Note to Self: Mmmh.... this is not good. Biomimetic suspects something.
To Biomimetic: "Don't be surprised your threads took off. You must have a flair for this kinda thing... I mean be realistic...come on, you can't really suspect an internet conspiracy to respond, monitor and control you...that would be ridiculous!
To Biomimetic: "By the way do tell me... did you dream of Mars again?"
Note to Self: Must call Cohaagen right away.
I tend not to believe anything from a source when I have no knowledge of the source's motivation. I just file it away for background. Around here your financial survival and mental health requires as much - caveat emptor rules!
'taint just the net, I became a cynic when I discovered there was no real Santa. Oops, hope that didn't offend anyone. :-)
Bio, no way, the Arthur Salvatore website scores top points for the over-the-top conspiracy theories, character assasination and general foaming at the mouth.
I have to put my tin foil hat back on now, the aliens are trying to read my mind again. Thank goodness I got off of the meds. And yes, it is a very quick read.
There is a guy with a major chip and axe to grind... but then again, Stereophile never has reviewed Shelter (as far as I know); and Fremer was a total jerk to the guy. It's too bad the guy has such a 'tude b/c buried under the ravings are some valid points. I've also noticed TNT often has little factual errors and technical faux pauxs, but nothing major usually. The reviewers on 6moons are weird in their own way, but not evil.
