Well, this has been fun but I’m headed to the pool for some laps. As is your predisposition, you can have the last word blimpo
For the record, when I purchased from wcfeil, it was one of the smoothest transactions I ever had. Before he retired, he carried some of the best and expensive brands available. I see no reason for audiotroy to mock him as he has closed shop and retired. I was all for audiotroy in the beginning as I felt he brought much information to the table, but his ongoing rants that go on and on and his childish argument with wcfeil is too much. Also, calling wcfeil old and irrelevant annoys me as I am also old and retired. I certainly wouldn’t want to purchase from someone who felt like that about me! To audiotroy: stop the nonsense as you are driving away potential customers with your long winded BS and your feud with wcfeil. If you must continue, do it via private email please for everyone here. Peace.
Stereo5 Mr Feil started this not us lets be clear.
As per brands he carried sorry we disagree i remember one of his ads and his gear was mostly smaller esoteric lines he did not sell the top brands such as Arc, Wilson, Kef, B&W etc.
Our store his $1.2 million worth of gear on display with Kef, Dali, Paradigm, T plus A, Mytek, Naim, Nad etc
As per feud we never started it he has been attacking us in every way possible and we have insulted him by calling him old he is the one who started by calling me chubby.
I am sorry you have been turned off by this so are we.
Mr Feil should refrain from being the self appointed monitor of Audiogon. If he would there would be no juvenille exchanges.
I was hesitant to indulge our overweight chest thumping rooster but for the record, here is a partial list of the brands I carried:
Pass Labs, Esoteric, Basis Audio, Transfiguration, Dynaudio, Manley Labs, Dynavector, Lyra, Stealth, Audioquest, Silverline, Atma-Sphere, Triplanar, Zu Audio, Koetsu, ATC, Audio Note, Cartridge Man, Parasound, and on and on.
Was it the finest and most exotic product mix? No, there were many other dealers at the time with a broader and more complete portfolio. However, it served my customer base perfectly and the niche I created. My feedback is testimony to it. Once again, my business has been closed for almost 5 years. I see little sense in lalin’s retrospection.
Go ahead lalin, now demean and/or ridicule any of these manufacturers so you can further alienate the posters and readers who own or have owned these products.
