  1. But given Larry's history of conflating facts and wishful thinking, why aren't you more skeptical about "what you have been told"? You utter that phrase constantly in your communications, like it's impossible to verify or even sanity check anything he tells you. It's in this way I think you have let the backers down . Simply passing on Larry's words doesn't provide any value to us. All it has done is provide Larry Ho a protective shield.
  2. I don't see Chris's solution as the best way to deal with the problem. Attempting to relegate "objective" contributions to it's own forum only deepens what is already a silly schism. Let's say I'm shopping for a new DAC. Now I'm supposed to go look in the subjective (main) DAC forum, then go into the Objectivist area and search again to get all member's viewpoints? Why? I think the only contribution that could be considered "objective" would be strict reporting of test data. EVERYTHING else, especially any interpretation of that data, is subjective. We see this all the time with case studies -- the findings can be interpreted several different ways, yet all claim to "scientific", "fact-based", etc. Plus, we all know also that numbers can lie, and what is claimed to be "apples for apples" testing can contain small variables which contaminated the results. Remember the "bits are bits" debate? Two USB cables with wildly differing costs delivered the same 1's and 0's to their destination. CheckSum confirmed they delivered the same bits. Hopefully, most of us can agree these points are subjective. But does the majority of people self-identifying as an objectivist/rationalist, etc. stop there? Of course not! They go on to conclude things like: Audio delivered by these 2 cables cannot sound different Which is OPINION and not objective. Other than a few members who are really good at sticking with the facts (Mitchco), the data and a conclusion are always connected together in the same post. So where does this move to? I see no way to detach the facts from the smuggled-in conclusions without destroying the whole thread.
  3. I've always admired Neal Peart for living a life well lived. After he became a rock star it would be so easy to simply coast on prior accomplishments and enjoy a decadent, lazy life of fame. But no; he was always pushing himself to evolve his craft and acquire new knowledge and skills. Losing your daughter and wife in the course of about a year would crush most people into self-pitying zombies. Neal rides for tens of thousands of miles all over the world to clear his head, then writes a book about it. Everything I've read of his prose and books is so thoughtful and occasionally very touching. If there is an afterlife, I hope his spirit is in a great place free from the pain. Cancer, I hate you.
  4. Agree. This has gotten past the point of ridiculous. Refunds are the ONLY action that makes sense at this stage of the game. I'll even waive the interest for floating Larry the money to develop products other than the ones I pledged for.
  5. I wonder if this would be effective on a 2.1 system? Might be a stupid question, but wouldn't the plugin tame the bass portion of the total signal even if some of the is being reproduced by the satellites and most by the sub? One product I am interested in is DSPeaker anti-mode, but I'd much prefer a software solution
  6. @LHCommSquad The site is now blank. If Larry Ho Inc. isn't actually a defunct operation, you guys are doing a really good imitation of one.
  7. Yes, I vote for a demo to be sent to @austinpop!! Or even better , the SAME phones, which could help resolve this variable about them being defective or not.
  8. Why are you selling them Blake? My Strada 2's work wonderfully as near-field desk speakers with a small footprint, but if you know of something better, please PM me!
  9. I didn't realize how important metadata is in getting artists paid properly: Metadata is the biggest little problem plaguing the music industry
  10. Been on a Gary Moore kick lately, and think this live version of Parisienne Walkways is just masterful. I've stripped out the MP3 audio layer for listening in my car...does anybody know of a higher res download of this exact performance? TIA, - PC
  11. Have you seen this footage @The Computer Audiophile? It doesn't have tons of likes, but it came up on my feed. Totally captures the man's sincerity and ability to compel folks to have a good time: Funk Jam Session - with Prince
  12. Loving this thread - keep it going!! Tablas and harmonium are so foundational to not only Indian music, but all music as it exists today. Tak-DiggityDiggity-Tak, -Max (PC)
  13. The JL Audio DSP amplifiers are awesome as long as you can get a good signal into them (analog works fine as long as it doesn't require a bunch as summing) I run 6 Focal drivers and JL Audio sub through the VX1000/1i and the ability to tune every driver individually was crucial in getting everything blended right. Pretty sure I have the best sounding Prius in Silicon Valley. 😏 Even put acoustic material inside the door panels.
  14. "No bearing"? Such a cop-out!!! When LHL eventually defaults on their obligation, know that your contribution was to extend the facade long enough to help them pass statute of limitations or otherwise blunt the impact of their fraud (through extending the timeline of the crime -- a common tactic of defense attorneys). Your non-response should lose any respect the backers had for you. It has for me.
  15. Glad to see you are engaging here @LHCommSquad. I've asked variations of this question in all other Geek Wave forums, but you have never addressed it. Here is yet another attempt: What delivery delay time (6 years past IGG campaign date...12 years past IGG completion date) do you PERSONALLY think is beyond any reasonable (objective) expectation? This is important information for us Geek Wave backers to know when to cut bait and move forward with litigation or other actions. Follow up: In your perspective, what is the distinction between you being a helpful conduit between Larry Ho and the backers, vs. being an enabler for a fraudulent operation? The longer you do not address this question, the more I'm assuming the latter. It's time to get out of your "defend the institution that hired me" shell and be real.
