The Title of the original thread that I posted and you objected to, included IMO. This means in my opinion in case your not aware. Yes I know that what I write is my opinion, but remember that I used a reference in A/B tests, and then measured to better understand the design. This takes a lot of time and casual dismissal is not appreciated. You obviously have an emotional investment in these speakers since you own them, but remember your model is not the same so what's all the fuss? You might have seen me suggest often, let's just agree to disagree. Why don't you drop it and just ignore my posts.If you want to talk about "facts" and get all bent out of shape, you should think about the fact that it is questionable if there are any "facts" in life. This is the subject of Epistemology an age old subject in Philosophy and these discussions could easily digress to the question of are there any facts at all. I minored in Philosophy by the way.I hardly have enough time to do the engineering work on these speakers, and I have no interest in selling you on my opinions. Again, let's agree to disagree, just let it be.Pete B. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
