I don't care about the hornets nest. I won't be here very long...
It was clearly evident that all of the attendees enjoyed themselves at the GTG! Terry, again, my thanks in so graciously hosting the event, and opening your gorgeous home to the many people, some, like myself, being total strangers to you.
I can only imagine that if your situation were reversed with any of the rest of us, the unkind, and unnecessary comments would cut deeply as well. It's an unfortunate byproduct of an anonymous community (an Internet forum) that the same courtesy, and respect is not shown as would be the case in a face to face conversation.
Hold your head up high, those who partook of your hospitality, who were actually there, hold you in high regard, and that is the only metric that truly matters. Sometimes these things require a thick skin, sad but true.
If you are as fastidious about your sound system as was apparent from the components that comprise it, I have no doubts that you would not have willingly used a compromised piece in the playback chain.
I think it's ridiculous that a few bad apples should spoil the barrel, look at the number of views this thread has generated, there are a hundred times more people who have quietly, and politely read these pages looking for a bit of enlightenment than have responded, and even fewer whom have commented in a negative fashion.
As for myself, I'm much too hard headed to really care too much about the comments from those looking to cause controversy. As was well stated by Mrs. Nuance, life is too short for that. Words to live by.
