Business Ethics in the Audio Industry
Viridian:  “usually I can be found in my underwear with a needle in my arm”Truly shocking!  Anyone on Audiogon should know it is not referred to as a “needle” but rather a “stylus”! 
All the old issues of Stereo Review are online!!
bdp24:  I think uberwaltz’s waitress story is a perfect illustration of “TMI” or “Too Much Information,” whereas Matti Otala introduced the term “Transient Intermodulation Distortion” or “TIM.”  Either way, NBD (No Big Deal).

uberwaltz:  a friend who spent some time in England informed me of the "before noon" rule you folks adhere to (something I had never heard of here in the States).  I was therefore immensely relieved to note that my post was made at 11:58 AM local ...

I listened to the Gryphon Diablo today , what an experience !
Good grief, George.  No one has uttered a word about Class D, yet you are unable to pen two sentences without subjecting us to your compulsory anti-Class D crusade!  I think it might be time to consider seeking professional help. 
HEY! I'm gonna' be a billionaire
Looks like a segment of the Audiogon community is suffering from severe HIS (Humor Impairment Syndrome).  You might want to consider that when it comes to creative thinking, you guys are dealing with a real pro, and onhwy61 has the track record to...

Actually I know exactly what the phrase begs the question means and how to use it in a sentence. My father was an English professor.I'd call that a naked appeal to authority, whereas the way you actually used it in a sentence:Fleschler, that kind ...
