    Keep in mind a lot of reputations are earned over a history of years over there. Some of the people that are called out are very well known to at least a few of us here, and deserve every ounce of their roasting.

    Me? I'm just a dick. But I'll live.

    I think people are saying that the signal to noise ratio is lower in Head Fi than here. They're not saying that there isn't any noise here. Just less of it.

    It's the same on Windows with Chrome, I installed Adblock Plus and Head-Fi started running smoothly again

    Elitist. Yup
    Arrogant. Yup.
    Do we think we know better? Of course! If we didn't, why would we bother?

    I'll even dare to say that the members here on average have IQs about 20-30 points higher than HF members.

    One of the reasons I started this site is because I have little tolerance for people who are stupid. I may as well be honest about it. I have a hard time dealing with stupid people. I do not wish to talk to them and I do not wish for them to talk to me.

    So what's your point again?

    Yes. Just as useless... until you read down and see that we got so sick of the useless discussion that we decided to arrange loaner unit where it will be shared and measured. Or maybe you missed the part where we will willing to go out on a limb to help a member (who was obsessed with the MicroOTL) expand his horizons beyond the MicroOTL. Yep. Useless. Go fuck yourself. You have no fucking idea how much effort, time, and money people have put into this forum, trying to share knowledge with each other.

    No, you don't get it. Your shit and HF's shit smells worse than ours. I want that to be perfectly clear. If I felt that HF's shit was less smelly, I'd be over on HF instead, or I'd let you run this forum.

    Evidently a few days of dick mode hasn't worked. Perhaps we need a full week of dick mode.

    If not for the purpose of identifying tubes with blurred symbols and marks, I would suggest refraining from doing so.

    Knowing Nick, he's probably trying to get the Elise in as a loaner.

    I've been on hype-fi for a while now and only recently joined SBAF. I much prefer the latter to be honest. Here you don't have to worry about getting the banned for simply stating your opinion. That thing alone makes this website better than the other one.

    Commander! Our sensors are picking up increased entropy activity caused by free radicals from multiple converging alien vessels! We should engage Lexington Steele Mode and target their aft exhaust piping!

    I know this is the love boat, but I thought it was hilarious in the last few days of CS when newbies would introduce themselves along the lines of "I am a lefty pinko commie transgender tri-racial furry, but I love audio and hope that I can still find a place here"

    At my local meet someone mentioned this dude in the area with a killer stereo setup, all sorts of toys. Apparently PreProMan is in my area. I am scared and also intrigued.

    Ahh preproman... the HE-6 fanatic who suddenly converted to stax. Also somewhat guilty of shilling his gear before selling it.

    Maybe I shouldn't trash my discounted gear that I'm trying to sell but I like being honest.

    I have Preproman to thank for me being able to listen to nearly the entire Denon/Fostex and Hifiman lineups over the last couple years. I had been recabling all of them for him in exchange for a few weeks with each one. Glad he found his audio home.
