Solid State is the ultimate oxymoron... on the one hand he completely slams the notion of a two thousand dollar power cord as 'ridiculous'. Then in the same breath swears that a $300 dollar 'wonder clock' will take your miserable 1080p Blu-ray picture (after all, they are soooo distorted and blurry usually) and transform it into a totally three dimensional image.... so good in fact that you will have the ability to walk right inside of your television and watch the action in person!

Ok, perhaps that's a bit over the top.

But he does trash the M80 and ALL of its design ideals, it's build quality, its trashy cross-over components, the way it shatters sonic waves so completely that you can't even hear them 10 degree's off-axis (I'm embellishing again aren't I?)... and then heaps praise on... wait for it... the M60!!! Because as we all know, these two speakers share absolutely not one iota of anything between them. They are as opposite as ying and yang. Uh-hu.

Or there's the niceties he saturates the Axiom people with every chance he gets, "those are seriously great people, willing to do whatever they can for you, they all have my utmost respect"... all of them that is, except for Ian and his raging ego that's tanking the company at an unprecidented rate since he just won't listen to reason and design his flagship speakers the way other companies think he should be build them.

Which of his views are we supposed to be following anyhow? Is there a decoder ring in my Fruit Loops box this week that I can use to decifer which of his theories is the real deal and which are just 'stuffing' to fill up this site's bandwidth???

Here we are trying our best to derail this thread and then you come along and start talking about "that guy" again.

I think we should save our really long threads for beer instead of trolls. Beer tastes better.

Troll’s good eatin’ these parts. Has the consistency of raw squid but it’s gamey rather than sweet. Have to cook it or the damm stuff tries to regenerate. Goes good with an IPA as the bitterness offsets it’s gamey flavor.

You guys managed to provoke me to the point that I insulted the entire "insider" audio community. Considering most are over 55, don't ride Kaiwasaki Ninjas or listen to Megadeth, I'm sure I'm now a Hieratic. I'm sorry I don't understand your crowd here Axiom... I never sold A/V gear at Futureshop to these types so...

I'm very sorry for the insults to the "insiders". As for you "Axiomites" here... I don't know what to say! We've ALL behaved like jackasses.

I just can't play on this Astroturf anymore. I'm likely to break an ankle and ruin my career.

Goodbye, fairwell, until we meet again! DOH!
HOPEFULLY NOT!

Solid-State
