Your posts on the forum have been a bit erratic. I believe you may have hyperbolized or even fabricated some details as there are a lot of inconsistencies between your posts in 3 threads (Trinnov, JBL SDP-75, McIntosh MX-170). There seems to be a grandiose image you are trying to portray. But there is no need for you to prove anything here to participate in discussions.
But please be courteous and post the truth (nothing but the truth). People [like me] invest valuable time reading and responding to your posts.
My goal is not to accuse you but to reach out a hand.
This hobby is accessible to all. Spending big bucks does not translate to great sound. Investing time reading & learning plays great dividends. Many if not most enthuaiasts here have built their systems piece by piece over the years, not overnight.
I'm hoping things aren't spiraling in your life. Speaking as a someone who has been clinically depressed, the holidays and winter can be especially rough. I needed many things (including therapy and medication) to get back on track. I have no shame. Mental health is just as [if not more] important then physical health.
I hope you receive this well. I assure you, my intents are purely benevolent.
I can certainly attest to your helpful nature Marc, you share your experience and evaluations freely without bias , people hear facts and details without the exaggeration , condescension or bias. This is what a discussion forum is supposed to be about , what it is quite often is just the opposite unfortunately. So thank you for your help, you are an inspiration for many members that appreciate your efforts during a confusing decision making process.
