I'm not going to mention any names but there is a small group here that are always bashing high-end audio. If they hate the high-end so much what are they doing here. The funny thing is I believe most of these people have little or no experience with it. They just like to express their opinion without any backing. I don't mind if someone has a favorite product line they really like. But to bash high-end equipment because it is expensive is not fair to the people here or the companies that make it.
