Just curious and my M22s are old enough to no longer have any warranty. I stuck with the stock M22 as my M22s are slightly more forward/detailed than the v2s and sounded smoother than the Ninja's.

I did send the XO's to Ian and he did some testing. He did say they were well built but did lower the power rating a little as more energy was being sent to the tweeters with the lower XO point. Ian said he did some blind testing and the consensus was the stock M22 was preferred which was a similar result to my experiment.

This hobby is very simple, listen to what your ears are telling you and nothing else.


Amen.

My problem with "ears alone", is that is very rarely the case. Unless you are able to conduct a proper double-blind listening test (you don't know which component you are listening to, and the person making the change has no possibility of communicating this to you either), your mind will often mislead and you'll "hear" the dollar signs or some other factor which really doesn't exist.

So I agree, one should trust their ears alone, but make sure that's what you're really trusting.

Oh sure! The Ninja sneaks out the side entrance, so some freakin' Zombie climbs in the window to stir the pot some more...

Hey Fred, I thought your buddy (just kidding) SS was omniscient in all things audio with leading industry experts on speed dial. Why would he need to post asking what speakers to “upgrade to” from his Axioms? Suspicious…

I'm hopping to hear owners of the new Emotiva ERT-8.3 to voice opinions on these rather new loudspeakers. Also I'm curious how it performs in concert with the ERT-6.3 as a center. Currently I have M80s and VP150 and am unhappy with the sound and want to upgrade.

Was he really old enough to register there in 2005?

Looks like he’s also making friends over there.

Man I'm sick of the "I need double blind studies" and "where is the scientific proof" etc line regarding interconnect material IE cables etc. All I offer is experience and advice. Cabling can and does make a difference. With that said though the "laws of diminishing returns" and "within reason" apply.

Thank you for this.
I will be wearing a smile for the whole morning!
That was entertaining.

I hoped someone else would get a kick out of it. Nobody posting over there right now but since he’s got the last post in several threads now and is playing the same game as he did here of pretending to be cool while taking pot shots at people I think it’s going to get even more interesting. I just hope he doesn’t get banned too quick cause I want this to last.

Besides the wire thread I’m not sure which others will go south (probably all) but if you check out his profile you can pull up all his posts once things start rolling today.


Grab some popcorn and have fun watching.

If I hear him say, "laws of diminishing returns & within reason apply" one more time, I'm going call his mother and tell her to ground him from the computer for a month!
