[QUOTE=Steve Bruzonsky;57881982]Bulldogger, you know full well I am being "polite" here as this is Theta Digital's thread, and arguing about sonics gets no one anywhere. But please do not tell folks why I do something and misquote me.
Second, I could even add multiple Theta Generation VIII Series 3 DACs from digital outs of my Trinnov Altitude 32-1624 if I wanted. Though the most I would ever consider might be one.
/QUOTE] Well,excuse me. I was too trying to be polite and mistakenly thought I was coming to your defense. It was my understanding that you wanted more features like Roon Ready, ethernet connections, more filters for the corrections software? Regardless, it doesn't concern me. Anyone is free to buy what they like. As for the Gen VIII, why would you consider even one? I'll make you a deal? You don't quote or mention me, and I'll do likewise? We can move forward.
As for ATI being focused on commercial cinema, I would point you to the ATI ATP 16 to show that the company has not abandoned the consumer market. It appears to me, that they are deeply committed to consumer processors.
I would argue that ATI manufacturing a product for another company, does not make one necessarily a fan of the products it's markets under it's own consumer brands. Again, this is not my concern, what brands of which you are fond.
Never become so involved with something that it blinds you.
