Before making a fool of yourself, seeing that you're new here, perhaps you should go back and reread my posts where I actively told others about the flaws and cons of my current equipments. I have zero problem with people talking crap about my stuff or the A9555 which I don't own, certainly people's taste differs and no equipment's perfect. I'm not one of those audiophiles who think they have the greatest sounding stuff because of a huge price tag and pretty cable jacket. You need to stop throwing assumptions just to win a discussion. It's pathetic.
Anyway, you insisted on keeping alive a topic that doesn't belong in this particular thread. I tried many times to tell you in a polite and gentle way. Why is it so hard for you to grasp? Though I must mention a few things that doesn't go well with your belief:
1. The fact that you think the A9555 isn't an overpriced amp when there are others that to you sound just as good for way cheaper. Then why the interest in this amp or this thread? Any other intention is clearly no good.
2. "But aren't most of us looking to hear music as it was intended (or at least as close as possible) ?" What makes you think high end amp makers don't tune the sound even if the amp is lacking tone control as to provide a "house sound". You really think cheap amps aren't guilty of the same thing? If you don't think so reread #1.
1. This amp is certainly not for you. *focus now* If all amps sound the same and this piece isn't overpriced, then don't bother telling people they've been scammed when you're in the same position. Don't contradict yourself and be a hypocrite.
2. I tried to stay on finding the solution to the discussion but you kept throwing personal attacks at me and others. If it's personal, feel free to private msg me. If not, I've pointed you in the right direction for the topic that you like to discuss about. So feel free to join the Official all amps sound the same thread. You don't have to be afraid.
OK, what's left to talk about? You want to impugn my character by twisting my words and making wrong presumptions? That's hardly constructive and beneficial to others or to me. But if it feeds your ego and makes you feel better, again feel free to PM me. Also, commenting on someone's poor English skills will certainly make you feel better but it's a personal attack that has nothing to do with the discussion at hand. It's also a valid evidence for reporting you to the moderators.
You can start on contributing by actually telling us what you like in building your system or even by stating your equipments. Or maybe your background in this hobby. Or you can tell us whether the very existence of your screen name (the latest one perhaps) is to go around telling people all amps sound the same. Just the truth please.
