Hold grudges much?

Let it go. Tube output audio devices do introduce distortion. That's a fact. It's whether you like it or not that's up for debate. Me? In my limited experience with tube amps, I rather like it.

yeah, ditto on the let go on the distortion bit, 2x6. With that out the way, I have to say I agree with you that some here -- if you actually bother to count the people, it's only a few and not the mob/majority you claim -- have treated Skiing Ninja less than kindly, especially given his forthrightness and willingness to put his products to the ultimate test.

Skepticism AND willingness to challenge your currently-held beliefs are the hallmark of a healthy world citizen. \:\)

By and large, this website has become a rude forum for anyone who does not share the consensus audio opinions


Now thats just not fair. While the majority of people here are in the 'wires, AVRs etc. don't make much/any difference' I have not seen any rudeness when those opinions are expressed. No personal attacks, your an (insert favourite insult here), no belitteling others.

All in all, people express their opinions respectfully. This thread is probably the most edgy since I have started posting here.

Sit back and relax. Lets see what results Ian's testing brings.

Now, where's that **@!!* popcorn. ;\)

Comon 2x6, this is a forum where people expose ideas and opinions. I wrote my opinion and it should be taken for what it is, just my opinion. Ya’ know, that’s the risk of trying to advertise products in online forums… you may run into some bone-head like me shooting from the hip.
Having said that, I exposed my reason why I called the ninja dude product BS even before Ian’s measurements. The Ninja is in a win-win situation. If there’s no measurable difference (which I think is unlikely), he doesn’t really win but he doesn’t lose either. Now, if there’s in fact a measurable difference, the ninja dude won, regardless of what Ian and/or Alan points might be regarding crossover linearity (or lack thereof). Of course, Ian might say that the Ninja has a killer product… then and only then I’ll have to eat my words :-)

I believe a certain presidential candidate has trademarked that phrase. I'd consider changing it lest he sick his pitbull on you.

Dunno what you said there but as long as it's the pitbull with lipstick it's all good \:\)

Utterly humorless and disappointing tirade, 2x6. You could have used your time and considerable skill to eloquently and positively espouse the idea under consideration instead of attacking people.

I was researching bookshelf speakers (I haven't got the space for bigger floor speakers) and I read about the speakers that Ninja modified and won a bookshelf speaker shootout. I was impressed and decided to investigate the Ninja. I contacted him and he was amenable to putting together an upgrade for the M22s.
