Probably some resident dealer doesn't like that Human sells U.S. made speakers for <$600/pair that can embarrass others costing many times more.

It’s possible that it was removed by automated software that I believe was put in place to deal with the flood of spam we had here in the past few months, until it was recently brought under control by various measures Audiogon put in place.
The statement that "one of our moderators or admins have removed this discussion" which appears when the link for your review is clicked on does not necessarily mean that a moderator or admin decided to remove the thread. That statement even appears when the originator of a thread decides to delete it.
You might want to email Audiogon Support and ask for it to be reinstated.
Al - I actually received an email from the mods that it had been removed. I did save the opening post on Word. Thanks for the tip - I will drop them a line.
Millercarbon - Human is not involved in the thread. The only investment I have in Human is buying the speakers. The "inHuman" is old fashioned audio humor, like "Lirpa Labs" from Audio Magazine (Lirpa is April spelled backwards - Lirpa Labs was for April Fool's day - they would post impossible products that were hilarious).
That being said, you are quite right. The amount of "marketing" here that goes unchecked is rather voluminous.
I am talking to a 3rd American speaker company about its product line, too - First was Ohm, then the Humans, and hopefully a third later this year.
Helomech ... that was going to be the gist of the review: are they a great value or a speaker ideal whose time has come and gone? I don't do this for anything other than love of the hobby.Just a guess that they're a great value based on my experience with the EPI 100s. I recently bought a refurbished pair out of curiosity. They can compete well with many current $1K - $2K/pair standmounts IMO. So if the Humans are even better, they must be a special value at $540/pair.
