It really does a disservice to others to continue to allow them to ruin what could be a terrific forum. But I can see that I am not welcome here so I will move on. Yet another participant is run off by the demagogues. Undoubtedly I will be banned from the thread and this post deleted for speaking the truth.
Well, since you seem to enjoy playing cop and are saying you'll be leaving, you can go over to the Arcam thread that Alimentall mentioned and tell them that since the unit is under $20k, they should move over to another part of AVS.
I don't care for Alimentall's style, either (and in fact I had the distinct privilege of being on his ignore list for a time), but I think that the view you express above is somewhat out of line as it pertains to this thread, because it is Alimentall's thread
. Do you feel he has derailed his own thread? I don't. It is true that the more recent posts are somewhat about standalone digital active crossovers, which could be used DIY, but I really don't consider that a derailment from the thread topic, anymore than a discussion of the merits of, say, coaxial drivers would be in a thread that had the titile "KEF Reference speakers".
EDIT: The funny thing about your attitude is that, if he posted stuff about DEQX and digital active speakers on the Magico V5 thread or the Kharma Grand Exquisite thread (which he has), you would be telling him (perhaps justly) to "go start your own thread." Well, he has done that. And yet you can't stop with the criticism?
