OCD mickey website and negativity.

I see videos from this individual frequently he's got a show every night almost on YouTube which is live. It's interesting.

I'm not familiar with the brands on his website and he doesn't seem to be happy about lots of stuff. He visits stores and complains about how terrible their equipment is and that no one knows what they're doing without really explaining him himself.

I've learned many things from him but I don't know why his gear that he represents seems lacklustre, I'm not gonna mention it here but maybe I'm wrong. There are many outstanding so-called higher end audio gear that's out there and he doesn't seem to carry any of it.  




OCD Mikey is an audio anti-salesman.  He is the anti-hero, the John Wick of the Audio World.  He is the bogeyman that lurks in the shadows of your listening room.  Rumors say he can walk on ribbon cables without leaving a crease.  He wanders the country like a monk rescuing people from their audio peril.  (Caine’s theme playing in the background.)

Never met him but his customer’s testimonials are positive and sure, he’s not reticent to ruffle a few feathers.

Mikey, you have not claimed to know anyone that you lump into the category of having no knowledge or experience. If you don't know any commenters here personally how is that any different than what you accuse commenter of here.  Your long rambling responses are way too defensive in response to the mild comments  you want to label throwing shade on you.  

Don't think anyone here accused you of having no knowledge or experience.  Several positive comments were made by those having direct contact with you.  Others simply expressed your schtick not being their cup of tea as a source of information. 

Dial the drama back.  You are the one coming here beating your chest as a pinnacle of knowledge and experience somehow wronged.  Myself, and most others here, are not questioning your bona fides.  Simply, your presentation style is not for everyone.


I dont need and dont listen to many reviewers...

I dont buy and dont need to... 😊

But i like the answers of Mikepowellaudio here... I will keep his youtube as an interesting listening. I like sincerity frankness and opinions which may differ from mine if well argued for ...

Thanks to him for his answers...


I’m guessing many of you are not familiar with the hit TV series titled, "Kung Fu" that came out in 1972 to which I alluded to in my previous post. Some years back, I had a young engineer in the office that often used the term "grasshopper". One day I asked him if he knew where that term came from. He did not. So I pulled up that particular episode of Kung Fu to show him where the Kung Fu master nicknamed Caine Grasshopper. Caine as a young boy is training to be a monk. An older monk, a master who is without sight mentions to Caine that there is a grasshopper at his feet. Startled, Caine jumps and asked his master, "Old man, how could you hear the grasshopper at my feet?" To which the without sight Master replies, "Young man, how is it that you could not?"

Now isn’t that just like Audio?

The difference is that you hear the grasshooper or not....

But hearing the listener envelopment acoustic factor (LV)  in a room  with a balanced auditory source width (ASW) must be experimented and learned one step at a time. Because it is related to many parameters of frequencies, sound pressure levels and inter aural cues and correlation and other acoustics factors...Here we hear and learn to hear in an incremental controllable way...

In audio we dont buy costlier upgrade  to hear better as most do ... We learn how to hear and how to listen to begin with  to spare our money on pieces of gear BEFORE  we had  mastered acoustical,electrical and mechanical basic embeddings  workings controls of the system.
