Jay's "Ugly Truth" video


Why does this get mentioned so rarely? 

I've experienced the "dark side" and have never had the means to afford gear that's remotely close to the level that Jay focuses on. 

What about you -- can you relate or have you always been able to maintain a healthy balance and avoid being overtaken by obsession? 


Egotistical fathead.  Talking about OCD while standing among multi-thousand kilobuck components, as if to say "Don't aspire to be me, I am too far above you".

I used to participate in his thread but stopped a long time ago because he could not tolerate opinions that he for some reasons disliked.

$150k Magico with $150k Boulders or with $50k Gryphons Essence sounded super, as I remember.

I'm a bit skeptical about this YouTuber for some of the reasons/impressions listed here.

That said, he's right when he says that making this video goes against his own channel's "brand." So, he gets points for that.

Something about the OCD label does describe some things I have gone through and have now pulled back from. So, points for that, too.

For those here actively hating on him, I'm not sure where the anger/passion comes from. Perhaps he struck a nerve? Otherwise, why so heated?

I'm with @mahgister about seeking sound quality with every tool possible, and I think he's right about the many ways that can be accomplished without the consumerism and expense endemic to this hobby.
