What did Speco say? Was it intelligible? He's on my "bad" list so all I know is that he posted but to me the post is blank. I guess my translation software works fine as it hides what he says and tells me what its worth. HA!

I just realized... shouldn't it be "Ultra High-End" rather than "Ultra Hi-End"?

Ultra Hi-End seems to refer to a portion of the forum where people might greet each other in a profound manner

There are many puzzling questions like this one.

Why is it that 'it never rains in sunny California'?

Why is it that 'God didn't make little green apples, and it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime'?

I agree Steve and thanks for bringing this out of the dark and into the light. How dare these fakers who haven't spent 20K on their systems, let alone on a single component post here? So where do we vote to kick you out first?

And QQQ is (was?) my friend. HA!

Notice how not one person has even attempted to answer the question posted initially. I never said you less than $10K or $20K folks shouldn't be allowed to post here. I just begged the question why you post. And 'you have answered it. You post to bug me. If I quit posting here at this forum, you will all fade into oblivion and cease to exist.

If you have heard the gear and have valuable experience, that's a worthy contribution regardless . I spent a lot of time with older audiophiles when I was in college and learned a lot even though my home system was modest at the time. I try to share my current system with some younger audiophiles just as some older guys were kind enough to do with me. But I am sure this is not the types you are questioning.

You are not so mad. Happy New Year. We're home as my 17 year old daughter has some friends over in my home theater room. Better there than elsewhere.

Definitely cost more than $20K, too. And that's before his power conditioning and power cords. OOPS!!

OK. Here's the truth. The 20K and up forum is the place to give SH_T regardless of your system or its cost. Get it out here so you leave the rest of the AVS Forums alone!!!
Don't go over to the CRT forum and keep telling Curt that his love for CRTs is based on voodoo science and magic arts as opposed to modern objectivity. He won't believe you
(nor will I). Hey, I luv Curt. I get his newsletter. He'll try to sell to anyone.

This question has been asked here before. However, in probably a bit more polite manner. It's my understanding that this section was originally intended for projectors costing greater than $20K. Through time it evolved into a hi-end audo/video forum. At last count (at least according the last thread on this subject, and since high quality projectors have fallen way below the $20K mark), this forum is for systems totaling above $20K (as Steve has suggested in this thread).

I post here, though not in a long while. My gear totals way abovie $20K. But I have no single component that cost that much. Well... maybe my interconnects (just kidding!)

I check in and keep an eye on things, as I appreciate the high end as a reference point. While I don't own any individual components costing anyway near $20k, having some familiarity with reference gear allows me to maximise performance returns on my equipment purchases and DIY projects.

Good question......

My current system is worth 16K or so and I've posted here in this section only four or five times.....

I think it is not that bad......

Happy 2007 to everyone (including those who do not even own $5K systems)!

It's all part of the 2006 - 2010 "What Can We Do To Get On Steve Bruzonsky's Nerves" viral internet campaign.

Wait til you see the video on Youtube where someone in a black mask uses high end interconnects to tie a mattress to the roof of their car.

Now that's funny.

As for the forum itself, I don't personally care who posts here. There are certainly those who aspire to have more expensive equipment and those who can add intelligent additions to the discussion even though they don't own the items themselves. I certainly do find the constant "I could build X myself for a fraction of that cost" or "It's crazy to spend Y amount on Z product" posts annoying. It's one thing if they pop up when someone asks how you might be able to replicate similar functionality for less, wants to compare product A to B, etc. But it's another when a thread that has nothing to do with price, ROI, etc devolves into a price argument back and forth. Just my $0.02.
