I'm glad to see Sam is back. I'm sorry to see he drank the Cool-Aid.
It was actually Flavor Aid, not Kool-Aid.
Welcome back, Sam! Stay away from both.
I was particularly fond of the fifth paragraph in his intro. Classic ST!
I know. Hence, the Kool-Aid comment.

Welcome back, Sam. Good to know you're still the same old, well principled Audio Cheapskate we all have come to know and love.
Isn't it paradoxical though to be a cheapskate and not take advantage of what's out there? Principles are a luxury. If one is to stick to one's principles, one can afford a luxury, thus one is not a cheapskate.
Principles are a luxury.
Oh, Alex, for godssake!
No one who adheres to their principles believes that.
No one agrees with you!
The only thing remotely true about your statement is that someone without principles is truly impoverished.
Alex, why do you continue in your attempts to restart this issue? It has been covered in two separate threads. Let it go.
