Correct, for example, I could very easily mention supposed phone calls and/or produce copy & paste or even forward alleged e-mail(s) the content of which "proves" that I am currently in simultaneous relationships with both Kate Beckinsale and Kate Bosworth at the same time, but that doesn't necessarily make it true now does it?
If I told you who to call and ask about the device, would that suffice?
Thanks, but no thanks. Truth be told, I really don't care enough about it to spend that much time, effort, & energy on it. I just wanted to see if you had any actual irrefutable proof of your claims since, as already pointed out, that is the entire basis of your disqualification of the whole comparison, and you are not willing to accept others' claims in the same fashion you want us to accept yours.
After I confirmed with them about that lack of an L-pad, and then started asking questions as to why, my emails were no longer returned. I used to have a good relationship with that company, but because of this device, and asking questions about it, I burned that bridge. Actually, none of this is real proof unless you can verify it some way, correct? So tell me what you would like to see.
A schematic directly
from the manufacturer should suffice, but it looks like that is (conveniently) now off the table. As you yourself asked Kini62 on the other thread when he or she mentioned the comparison - "got a link?"
Answer to your second question....
I have heard the D2.1SE and the Sierra-1 side by side, in my room...the NHT Threes were not in this group. I have heard the NHT Threes and CMT-340SEs, also in my room, side by side...the Sierra-1 or the D2.1SE were not yet available.
Even though as it turns I did, then why did you specifically ask me if I had when you didn't yourself? Even you must admit that is a bit of a double standard, is it not?
Also, to be clear, I had the Acculine and my CMT-340SE in my room, side by side, trying to replicate the difference in levels and level matching that craigsub reported.
So, please sincerely answer these two questions for me:
If you knew what my position was, do you have issue with me posting it?
Second, what do you consider to be a "piece of the pie"?
Second question first, I'm more than sure you already very well know exactly what I'm talking about, but for the benefit of anyone who doesn't, it's what is in your signature that you are the owner of now, and this thread about it here
which the first post of is self explanatory.
First question now - anybody here is obviously free to post whatever they want to so long as it doesn't break any laws or forum rules. If I had an issue with you posting your position on it, I would never bring up the comparison in the first place because as already pointed out, I already know in advance you will soon be making an appearance to try to downplay it for very transparent reasons. What I do have an issue with is someone who is not self aware enough to realize that he (or she) is not holding himself (or herself) accountable to the very same standards that the individual wants to hold others to, and that seems to me to be the case here. Do you have an issue with being challenged to prove your position and claims?
Not on this thread, but you stated elsewhere that it was "interesting" that I don't post the review of the D2.1SE that included the Sierra-1. I assume you obviously mean the one by Clarke Robinson of Enjoy the Music.com here
which you had previously linked on the other thread? IMO, that review is no more credible than one posted by any random member here at AVS. It is just the opinion (with absolutely no measurements whatsoever) of one individual, who also happened to already be an owner of a pair of the Sierras and may have had a natural bias because of that, and who admitted that he didn't have the Swans in their best positioning. Even you must admit that is not as credible as a double blind, level matched comparison by a panel.
