The first thing I would do is try to reproduce the bug. If I can't the problem might be just a malfunction of a particular unit. This would be constructive and help the other user.
In the case that I can reproduce the bug I would get in contact with Emotiva and describe the behavior to them. This would be constructive and help all users if the bug gets identified and fixed.
Accusing him (and now me) of trying to take away your "enjoyment" of that product is absurd.
I never accused you or him of that.. every time you engage me in a discussion you seem to end up in a contrary position to mine... I'm used to it..
I said he was questioning my decision to live with any issues, or that ignoring them and valuing the subjective sound quality of the XMC over the inconveniences, was some kind of fault or I am wrong to do so, or I am trying to use basic age old debate tactics to bolster my ineffectual argument, or.... that's the way I read it.
Like you have done many times in the past, you put it on us to do the research for the issues you seem to look very hard to uncover... as if you can't wait to spring out of the proverbial jack in the box and scream "Gotcha!"
I don't know if there truly is an issue like the one you two are discussing.. and frankly I don't care if there is.
I enjoy the XMC.. from what I have heard, as have others I've invited other AVS members over to hear, has been subjectively pleasing.. when I listen to MY WORK, I'm not missing anything obvious
Quite frankly I have much more important stuff to do with my time that trying to replicate the issue you and Igor seem to have found.. I really don't care if I'm being honest..
I come home after work and turn it on when I have some precious free time.. and I love what I hear...
Most of my time is spent with my wife and daughters.. if they
weren't properly reproducing low frequencies or snapping when playing DSD files off of disc I might take them to a doctor immediately.. as it stands there are issues with them growing up, being pre teens, putting a roof over their heads, moving my career forward, trying to be healthy, etc.. I have my priorities..
Engaging with you are Igor or your many crusades isn't even on my list...
This is stereo gear.. it's not impertinent like that in the least..
Life's too short... good day.
