that's very true. Indeed I have been active in the internet since the very day internet was invented and this is nothing new to me.
If someone asks "a Lion vs a Chihuahua dog, which one do you prefer?" And some people say they prefer lions, some would answer they prefer Chihuahua. Both answers are absolutely fine as it clearly comes down to personal preferences when choosing either one.
However, if someone says "I have compared a Chihuahua puppy with a lion side by side, and I prefer the puppy because the puppy was stronger, meaner, balder and larger, while the lion was weaker, smaller and slower", this will certainly create some stir and lead to responses that this Chihuahua fanboy finds offensive. People can certainly have preferences, but opinions too far from the truth can hardly be tolerated, especially in this forum where most people are looking for good quality sound within their budget.
I have offered numerous possible explanations to explain why he would think the RX6s appeared better than the the Focus 220s, he rejected all these external reasons and insisted that RX6s are the real champion, and found my explanations (which are all external reasons) "offensive".
To dhoff01: saying the $3300 Focus 220s inferior in sound quality to the $1200 RX6s with absurd reasons is equally offensive to most Dynaudio owners, as you imply they are stupid to pay much more than you and get poorer sound quality than you. Also despite what you claimed, I would recommend you listen to more speakers in real life and speaks with more audiophiles or hifi enthusiasts (whatever you call them) than just googling around and listing information that you thought I did not know, pretending to be an expert of high-end speakers here.
