Make it four. I did the same damn thing. Got caught up in the upgrade dilemma sold my Meridian on Audiogon, got a low price dammit and spent two years going through digital like nobodies business throwing good money after bad and finally bit the bullet and ended up with what I began. A Meridian. I burned through a MSB with extra upgrades, two Linns, a Naim, a Muse and finally back home. What a waste of money and time. My wife wants to kill me cause she told me in the beginning not to sell the Meridian and caught sight of the bills on my Visa for two years. I coulda had a PT Cruiser, well, almost, for the money or if time was money then I definitely coulda had a PT for two years wasted.
This country is about free speech. That is why people like you are allowed to respond back with such innapropriate statements like "sorry - but guys like you should be banned out of here! " without doing any type of research on what has been going on in multiple threads lately in regards to EMC1. Their have been several BOGUS email posters who are not members of Audigon but have posted nearly the same thing in regards to how bad the EMC1 is in over 4 threads in the last week alone. Anyone could detect a pattern quite easily and see that an agenda is on display.
"I really would appreciate not to see Arrogant and aggressive threads like yours to nice peoples' input here on Audiogon, Got me? Thanks" Totally unnecessary. Please view the thread "Smear Campaign" in the digital section and you will understand that this was a thread started by the same idiot hiding behind a fake email address. This is a free country but slander is still illegal. I look forward to your apology. Got me? Thanks
Celery, you didn't convince me about being wrong with my statement. I don't care what has been before! Nobody can know all threads' history. What I see here and mow is a nice thread, in nice words - and you bombing it with agressive an totally inapropriate words. Why don't you just discuss the content of the thread?? Why do you have to attack the guy - and not with arguments it is! "Shut up" never was an argument nor will it ever be.
I just hate the way people react in a field like high end which should be fun for all of us - no matter what the individual is posting as long as it is not offending. Your reaction, however, WAS offending - not me but the style of speech I find in here in Audiogon and which I do like.
I will be happy to apologize as soon as you will admit that you atarted the agressive approach.
Play it cool!
Aida & Celery: The initial thread is based on Hogwash. You are both basically right as the "right" to both support and deny such Hogwash is a given. Wouldn't you rather agree or disagree or share thoughts about something that is not total Hogwash? We are talking music reproduction here and sometimes the Bill of Rights just has to take a backseat.
Thanks Dekay! I completely agree with you! Lets go back to the stuff which is our hobby - but let's talk in a peaceful way - or as McIntosh coins it for the wonderful MC 2000: there's already enough distortion in your life! Maybe - since I own that gem I am more sensitive to agressive atmospheres.
Sorry, Im going to disagree. I've always had problems with digititis whatever machine I used. then I read this fantastic magazine hifiplus.co.uk, which talked about a dedicated mains supply. Solved the digital problem right there. If I go back to the ordinary mains, with all its rf problems, the digititis comes back on my cary 303. Also I find a really heavy ply rack works well, and keeping the rf out of the power cord and the speaker cable. The cary 24/96 is very detailed, and picks up any interference from the mains. So the moral is look upstream to correct the problem. And check you've got a good earth! mine was a mess.
