Actually, you don't know me. That you suggest that you do is all a part of you acting like an obnoxious prick. Suggesting that you know my type from reading occasional posts here and there that I post on these fora is good proof that you are a condescending jackass as well. Especially when you
start making statements and suggest that your
statements were what I have been saying in my posts, which couldn't be farther from the truth. For example, I never said that spending more money means a speaker will sound better. I also never said that more expensive means better.
These are little fantasy scenerios you ran in your own head before deciding to post an attack against me, for what reason/reasons, I have no idea.
In any case, you end up looking like the jerk IMO, since you decided to make these assumptions about me without any reason or proof that I am that kind of person. Especially since nothing in my posts suggests I am that kind of person, or that I even believe the kind of things you are attributing to me in your post.
People tend to do that a lot on these fora, attack people without any real reason or provocation, or make up some kind of fantasy person in their own head then attack that person without really reading their posts and considering what they are saying. This happpened to me all too recently in a thread about ID speakers where people came into the thread and didn't even read the things I had been saying, but rather attacked me based on what people already attacking me were posting... One guy started attacking me based on the fact that I owned 802D speakers, meanwhile it had never even been a part of the discussion until he brought them up (he came into the post, quoted me with a post that had nothing to do with his actual response, then declared that his $3000 dollar Rocket speakers blow away my 802D speakers - very similar to this post in some ways, except he was a terrible speller and his grammar was atrocious).
The only thing I have said, in a nutshell, is that his opinion might not match up with someone else's opinion, so he shouldn't present his opinion as fact. I dont agree with him concerning the 600 series speakers offering at least
90% of the sound quality of the 802Ds, making me one example of why his opinions aren't fact. You are another example of someone who doesn't agree with his opinion on the topic. I was actually thinking around 70% IMO, but hammering down a hard number on such a thing is silly I think, since there are many variables involved.
BTW here is the original sentence I had issue with:
