(Gee, it's been quiet on here.
I've been staying away from Emotiva related threads for the most part since it seems that they are turning into pissing matches between people who like Emotiva & own their gear, dissatisfied former owners who can't seem to get over their bad experience, others who simply don't like anything about Emotiva then when some poster starts spouting about something or another, the all amps sound the same crowd parachutes in and a multi-page sh!t storm ensues.
I'm not sure exactly why my post got deleted unless someone complained and frankly I don't remember the exact verbiage but I'm pretty sure it was the broad brush painted about how "subjective\sighted" evaluations are worthless or can't be trusted or whatever.
I really get tired of the "I can't hear a difference so you can't either and if you think you do, you're deluded".
Or the "I've got graphs that prove my point".
There are some pretty intelligent people who post here but IMHO, they cannot get it through their heads that they are not going to convince anyone one way or the other.
I've only stated my honest experiences derived from a lot of years of listening to, playing and reading about music and gear.
I know the sound that I like and what I don't like.
I know that I have heard differences between various pieces of gear in mine and other people systems.
Sometimes these defy what one would assume is logical.
For instance, why does my system sound better with a preamp in between my Oppo and my amps rather than the Oppo straight into my amps?
By a certain POV, a piece of gear can only degrade or at best do no harm to the signal not improve it.
Yes, my system sounds better with a preamp in the chain and I've not done an A\B\X blind test so I must be subjectively justifying the preamp because I want a preamp, right?
If I could get by without having to spend money on a preamp I would and I'm not going to do any blind level-matched testing to satisfy some poster on an internet forum.
I've satisfied myself as honestly as I can.
So there's my over long to some, short to me response.
I would also kindly request that in a thread such as this, if your only intent is to warn people about Emotiva in general or reiterate your bad former experience\opinion about Emotiva,
most likely you've already done it several times here and elsewhere, please give it a rest or post in the BEWARE EMOTIVE THREAD or maybe one of the Tekton threads or another Bose thread.
