    Donated, Ive been around this forum for so long and changstar before it Im not sure why I haven't before, I lurk a lot and I dont say much. This is the only place on the internet I can come and read honest opinions from honest people that have actually heard stuff. It may not always be what someone wants to hear but its always true. Truly the best audio forum on the internet.

    Donated, though I feel it's a lot less than the value I get out of the discussions here.

    Donated! Keep up the good work guys!

    Ps: my PayPal email is different than the one I use here. But the first part is my name and I highly doubt that there is anybody else rocking my front name :)

    I left the audio game back in 2016. Four years later the game hauled my ass back in and told me that I can't unhear what's already been heard.

    Anyways, it's good to be back. Thank you SBAF for getting me back up to speed. Donated!

    Donated $30 under same email I am registered here.

    Thanks to SBAF community, landed a SW51+ and a really sweet deal on some headphones in the for sale area that was open to all. To the few people I bugged via pm (you know who you are !) with questions and newb inquiries, thanks to you as well !

    Donation made; long overdue. I don't know about monthly donations under PayPal management, so I set up my calendar to provide quarterly reminders. I'll aim for a quarter c-note every quarter.

    I have mixed feelings about donating in the open. I prefer to earn rather than buy my stripes. On the other hand, seeing posters with the Contributor badge did bring my attention to the contribution mechanism. So I'll take the badge if offered as a way of encouraging others to contribute rather than as an exercise in virtue signaling,

    Thanks for the donations guys.

    Again, the donations part is separate from the business income - which is the incentive for me to spend some time away from my family to run this site. (It's not $6 per hour anymore, but more like $13). These donations go into an SBAF warchest used to purchase gear for the loaner program so we can get a wide-array of impressions.

    We were actually underwater for some time with me personally funding the difference for the SBAF war chest. Recently, we've received a few big donations and sold off some loaner gear, with some pieces at great loss. So we are back in business from -$650 to a near +$4k warchest. I don't want to blow all of this on a few big ticket items like what we had been doing for the past several months.

    However, I will take any suggestions for gear. Even bad ones where the magic eight ball tells us we will take a huge loss. Part of our public service mission is to identify gear that sounds bad so we can all avoid it.
