Chris, I beg of you, no matter what, don't do this...

BTW, I like the new banner much more than the red one.

 

But when I clicked on it, I did not get the AS or CA discount on the speakers.

I gave Chris some really good ideas on this.  That the big red banner should flash between red and gold to get your attention.  But Chris didn't listen.  He took a somewhat more tasteful path.  

 

Thanks Chris.

I'm glad that site doesn't have loud music matching the obnoxious visual content.  Oh the Horror is if did.  

 

This was a nice touch at the bottom.

I'd say that's a full 10% of product placement between the ad banners. Quality site.

 

At least it's a Lee Free Zone...

If you haven't recently visited https://6moons.com/ they now have nothing except a Sponsor showcase for the home page.  Lots of sponsors.  There is a little note in little sized font partway down that says:

 

To launch menu in floating header, scroll to the bottom of page.

 

That is right.  You can't see anything except sponsors unless you scroll to the bottom for a barely visible floating menu where you can choose reviews or news or some other categories.  And we know what their reviews are like.  Heavy on the pictures and prose with review pages also heavily plastered with sponsor ads.

The Italians would never do anything as gauche as bright red...  wait...  never mind.

red & gold ?? weren't those the colors of the usurpers in the first book of Game of Thongs?

That site is the audiophile equivalent of a porn site: lots of ads, pictures of very expensive equipment, and no actual information. Audio porn fantasy. 


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS >SOtM Lan Isolator>Bricasti M5 Network Player >Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also 2 SBT and an SB Boom. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)
