All these posts getting deleted, one a my recent ones as well with one of these reasons given for the deletion:
I'm guessing no. 2 and 4 read from above. My post contained the word 'crap' written once - I wonder if that qualifies as proper grounds for deletion? Other than that I provided my perspective in a sought considered manner, making me think:
I doubt the @admins are all over this place constantly doing their ninja thing all on their own turning "unfortunate" posts into digital smoke; there's this option called 'Report this' that when used affects their decision making, and something tells me this option is used in a liberal fashion by some posters simply because they find certain posts by others to rub them the wrong way or otherwise make them feel offended, as if being in honest disagreement sanctions censorship against the other part. Isn't there enough vileness, bashing and empty calories going on already that evades the admins?
Let the hypocrisy continue..
Exactly, limomangus. The only reason I know how to solder is because I had to be proficient to pass a H S electronics course. I'm not really proud of this skill, haven't used it since that class and, hopefully, I won't have a need to the rest of this life.
I respect the gear designers, admire the quality, precision and the looks of the a/v gear but I love to use it for music and HT more than anything else. I'm certain there are no prerequisites or qualifications for being an a/v enthusiast, videophile or audiophile beyond those mentioned and I don't believe there should be. My goals are relaxation and enjoyment, not pretentions, restrictions, snobbery and exclusivity.
It seems to me that mahlman would benefit from some chillaxing.
I have wound inductors, soldered crossovers, upgraded components in amplifiers, built many many cables, and speakers.... However, before any of that, and before my Instrumentation and electronics degree, I was already an audiophile.
I consider myself an audiophile because I like to listen to music on a better than basic resolving audio system.
@geoffkait so how'd it sound after the silver wire?
