The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
I haven’t posted in a while, but when a thread this idiotic starts up I can’t resist. Substitute anything for "speaker" in the OP and you get to the same place, a thread like this which is a complete waste of time. Following the OP’s logic, if tha... 
Caveat about the Cable Company return policy
But their return policy needs to be clear at the point of sale.to be fair.. it is posted on their website and I am at fault for not reading it. I do understand them not wanting to accept returns on “non-stock” itemsI get that too, however, the 5 m...

The nightmare of the cartridge buyer...

USB Extender ?? had any luck passing audio over an extender?

The nightmare of the cartridge buyer...
daveyF, a rip off is when someone offers something for sale and misrepresents what it is. If I offer you a Rolex and what I sell you is a cheap imitation then I ripped you off. If I offer you a Rolex at full retail + 20% because it is a rare watch... 
The nightmare of the cartridge buyer...
Offering something for sale and finding people who are willing to pay the price is not a "rip off." It is capitalism at its finest. It doesn't matter that the cost of materials is much lower than the selling price or the mark up is very high, ever...
