Too much hate mail from arrogant dickheads. 

 

You mean aggressive communication from ML especially since 2 weeks on subjectivist vs objectivist. Sometime, take step back is good for all parties.

 

from my side not a problem I was not following his prose.

Was he really "kindler gentler" this time around?  I don't believe I ever clicked on this new effort site, but I became bored of his type of Audiophile a while back...


Hey MQA, if it is not all $voodoo$, show us the math!

His latest articles on sarcastic and funny jokes on audiophiles now make much more sense. There will always be different subgroups of people: the entry levels, the hardened veterans, the hardcore objectivists, the hardcore subjetivists, the old school, the bleeding edge, etc. Going public is sure going to annoy some of those, and after many years it must be tiring and frustrating.

He was a gentler version on Twittering Machines. And had changed his tune to me.

Now he's retired we have no beef to grind with him any more, we can no longer bitchamel about his acidic rhetoric, its all in the pasta now!

 

Did you mean: bechamel ??


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

How do you come to this conclusion? Is there traffic data available somewhere?

I for one will miss him. He talked about a lot of gear that I am interested in and his writing helped me when I first set up my network. His review of the Gigafoil ethernet filter was spot on and I doubt I would have found out about it otherwise.

Glad, I'm not the only one. I will miss his take. We need more not less various opinions.

On WTB forum Michael  made himself available for audio consultation-ish conversations both by email and phone.  You could say that he was driving me to certain brands but I didn't feel any pressure at all.  He truly was into the conversation.  He also had recommendations for any price level.  I really wish I would have consulted with him when I was spending big bucks in the past. 

 

I really enjoyed my conversations with him.....edge or no edge I will miss his reports. 

 

 


Put down the remote and pick up a musical instrument.....no really, learn to play something.  Your brain and spirit will thank you... :)
