exlabdriver and Socketman, I don't read AVS, but I suspect that you each made a valiant effort, and, not that you need it, of course, but you have my blessing and best wishes. More power to ya, brothers. Just wanted to clarify that I'm not so much trying to tell anyone what to do, but rather give a friendly warning/reminder of what one might expect if he chooses to go there.

Yup, I hear ya!

I thought that I was wiser now that I'm older, but I guess not...

Just like all of the unwarranted negative posts that will remain in the ether forever & unfortunately will continue to pop up during web searches, my feeble attempts at contrasting views, facts & arguments will also.

Hopefully someone will benefit from this sorry discourse...

Amazing - some in the AVS 'ARX Owner's Thread' just went to battle with each other over minor stuff that I don't understand. The moderator had to step in with a 'Knock it off' warning.

Where was an AVS Moderator when I could have used one?

Reminds me why I like it here...

Unless you adhere to his sig line, as he said you did. He was saying that you represented yourself well, that you did not act like an idiot when you were arguing with an idiot.




Thank you medic8r, you are a 100% correct, that is what I was trying to convey. Socketman sorry for any confusion.

Quite early on i stopped reading over at AVS (oh probably more than 8 years ago).
Clearly they don't really have moderators. For some time i figured it was just an open site some guy slapped up on a server since anything short of threats don't seem to garner any response from the site owners.

Far more than any other site i've attended, AVS really attracts alot of idiots and flamers. There are some more informed folk of course, but they can be found at other more cordial audio sites which are better places to converse with them.

Forget AVS.
Too much useless info to sort through.

Literally, the signal-to-noise ratio is too low there.

After I bought my Panasonic 65VT50 TV, I spent a lot of time reading and leaving messages on avsforum. I don't think I really learned a whole lot by doing that. Mostly, it was people inquiring and answers to, will this plasma have any IR (Image Retention). The last time I went back there, I see it's still a lot of the same questions and answers, only hundreds of pages deep.

I don't know - I glean a lot of pertinent tidbits & knowledge from AVS, Audioholics & Blu-Ray Forums. Keeps me abreast of the latest developments outside of the Axiom community & I like to help in the few areas that I am somewhat knowledgeable. It's best when confrontation remains out of it.

There is a lot repetition though, such as the incessant 'Choose Speakers for Me' threads that pop up in quantity every day by many that won't put the effort into doing their homework. That is of little interest to me...
