excellent come back, I admit.
If you know my posting history, you'll know that not just me but many of us early adopters of Pioneer's Ice and new class D amp receivers have helped many folks over many years with many Pioneer receivers.
I'm not a self-proclaimed expert, but I have done a whole lot of homework on these receivers, have done an international email campaign for the original Ice amp receiver, the $7000 SC-09, to try to convince Pioneer to provide a pay-for upgrade, have ongoing communications with a head person at Pioneer on behalf of Pioneer enthusiasts on the AVSForum. I have owned 4 Pio flagship receivers, from $4000 to $7000 each, and started 2 of the owner threads for the SC models, was one of the 1st in the US with the original SC-09. And yes, I'm bragging a bit for many of us enthusiasts who've been in these threads for years
I do all this so I can learn the guts of what makes them work for my own benefit & to be able to help others.
and due to efforts by some of us, many have been saved from taking theirs back to the dealer or to a service center when an error pops up.
you're coming in with 32 posts so you don't know some of us "old timers". so maybe if I cut the newcomers some slack, maybe you can cut me some too
Thanks & I have no wish to offend. just stating that Foxbat's reaction can be forgiven since the very same question has been asked many times on using the NET button on the remote for internet uses.
If you need help on something, hopefully I or someone else can help you. And yes, I do think all new owners should spend time with the manual. I don't apologize for that in the least.
How do you think some of us became "self-proclaimed experts"?
some of us have had to "slog" our
way through these manuals to be able to help people like you
so why is that OK to save you
from having to do it? over many years, I've read not just Pioneer manuals but those from Denon, Yamaha, Lexicon, Anthem, all kinds of gear I don't own or ever will own. just so I know how Pioneer stacks up.
why don't you step up? provide help nearly every day for 10 yrs, spending hrs every week here. try things out on your own setup just so you can help someone with a problem. yes, I've done that, too.
are you willing to do that? or are you just posting only when you
are in trouble?
I've thought about taking a leave of absence from these threads.
let some of you takers of free "resources" give some of yourselves to this forum. are you going to be one of them? or just sit on the sidelines & use our "resources"? just asking.Edited by ss9001 - 5/14/13 at 5:51pm
