Yes, there is a secred code or "audiophile language" which is learned through listening. When they say, "to be powered by the Energizer Bunny," they mean battery powered preamps. If they would have said, "the sound is long lasting, powerful, dependable," it would have meant they're using Duracell batteries in the pre.
You really have to read between the lines in these matters. You're showing some aptitude for this when you said, "I can't make heads or tails..." which would indicate that subconsicously you wouldn't favor Energizer batteries in these preamps.
Regarding the length of the threads, I'll share Schroeder's Observation, not quite a law, but close, that states any thread with more than 12 postings begins twisting like a DNA helix and takes on a "life of it's own." That's code for gets off track. It is at that point the thread either remains "mundane", which means no idiot posts a stupid reply - or gets "interesting", indicating several opinionated people thoughtlessly post, soliciting angry exchanges wandering way off topic. That's how a "Superthread" is born, meaning an incredibly time wasting, meandering virtual book.
As you can see, I'm trying my best to turn this into a Superthread! :)
Kubla, you've got that right. I'm still trying to draft Onhwy51 a cogent answer for the one I've been following, but my soap opera script writer friend is off for the weekend so it will have to wait. The fact that the two seem to intersect at times (one user of one of the products may have switched to the product that is the subject of the other thread, but I'm not quite sure of that yet) is an interesting twist.
I do think there is a lot of truth in Schroeder's Observation. I may nominate him for public office.
