Well, considering that those 3 posters individually have each brought an infinite more knowledge to this site than most here I guess you should only hope to one day be that "narcissistic."
Also, how is it narcissistic to ask people to back up their claims, most of which are at best case silly and at worst an embarrassment to the site and hobby. I just don’t get it. Why is it always the very knowledgeable here who are given a hard time when they try to either educate or ask for a clarification on something?
Also, while I appreciate the OPs effort in posting up a review of the player I really feel that these reviews are completely useless because none of these tests are ever done with all the variables removed. So it just becomes another exercise in "of course it sounds better than ____________." Ultimately becoming a justifacation of the purchase or worse a blatent advertisement.
Also, what is with the cable break in jibberjabber? That is a myth, nothing more. I am tired of reading about stuff like that because it looks like people throw out terms like that to try to sound more knowledgeable. It actually works in reverse. Besides, the whole "cables and interconnects make a difference" issue has been so beaten to death here. If you think they do then prove it.
