Jabs could be justified at numerous others as well. I gave a response that was in no way derogatory toward Oppo. You are the one who flipped because you are so defensive of the brands you own.
Why did you throw Oppo out there?
Because Oppo is a company that sells A/V gear at affordable prices but makes the added effort to produce well written manuals unlike Emotiva. You never did mention which universal players with the features of the Oppo's cost less.
Affordable does not mean value. I suppose I missed your question about features. Which features are so special to you?
I mentioned Onkyo because they have more serious problems than Emo, however you remain silent on those threads.
What data do you base that assumption on? So Onkyo has more problems per units sold than Emotiva does. If you want to play that game step up to the plate with actual data. Not just some obvious biased statements.You are still twisting. I never said more problems per units sold. I did hint they are more severe than Emo's problems. Units operate without manuals and not with the same failed parts year after year. Why don't you suggest that they invest in better QC than manuals? After all you were a customer. I do think that MCode has verified that Onkyo is #1 with problems. The numbers data is your game used to avoid the truth. Do you think all the statements from Onkyo owners with failed units are biased or lies?
I would rather have a poorly written manual than a unit that is only good for a boat anchor after the warranty expires.
Again show some data that shows Onkyo has more failures than Emotiva based per units sold.
Again. Read what I said and see answer above.
I am glad that you are more satisfied with a manual than SQ.
I'm quite happy with my sound of my system. With that I also have excellent manuals if I have any questions on how the gear I own operates wink.gif.
I think you are at the end of a limb and grasping to hang on. Why doesn't it make sense to acknowledge a problem accompanied by a solution.
I think it is you that is grasping at straws. I did acknowledge a problem (poorly written manuals) and offered a solution. The solution was for Emotiva to look at the way Oppo does it. Pretty simple but Emotiva refuses to offer well written manuals after many years of their customers asking for them.
Gee Bill. All roads lead to Onkyo. They had / may have more severe problems that you avoid like the flu. You should have advised them to look at Oppo. Your solution was no better than mine.
Since you do not own or do not plan to own Emotiva products why shoud they listen to you?
Really? So I'm holding on to a 40% processor upgrade card just for the presitige of having one wink.gif. I've owned a UMC-1, USP-1, LPA-1, ERC-1 and a Sherbourn PA 7-150. I'd still own them if I was happy with their performance. But I don't as I found gear that functions better and sounds just as good if not better.Hang on to that upgrade card. Antiques can be valuable. No gear will ever be perfect.
Do you think you are a customer?
Yes I do. Isn't someone that buys a companies product a customer?
You are a past customer who complained so much you got booted out of Emotiva. Some customers are not needed.
