That was an interesting mini review from the show. He mentions the Moabs as if they have never been reviewed before, and then, he, a fairly well-known reviewer who has been around all of this for years, says that he has never heard of Origin Live before. That seems strange to me as I've been aware of them for years, and I don't even own a turntable.
I stopped by the room and looked over the gear and setup.
The Moabs MC has are the base model. I give Eric some credit
for offering a Moab upgrade adding the s/b acoustics Be tweeter
and some XO upgrades. I recently heard these updated speakers
with an Orchard Audio amp and they provided everything the base
model is missing.
He got banned. And he at least had the decency to not come back pretending to be someone else.
You know, like @recklesskelly keeps doing. This is at least his sixth username.
He'll deny it of course, just like he did with all his other usernames.
Perhaps you remember him as jerryg123, or earlflynn, or skypunk, or juanmanuelfangioii, or chicagoblue1977, or...
I will refrain from praising or bashing MC. Life Tennessee Moonshine, he was an acquired taste.
I am curious about the current health or status of Oldhvymech, or his username similar to that? The Forum Member that always brought a smile to my face and chickens to the conversation. I haven't chatted with him in almost a year. Can anybody fill me in?
Right. This isn't a review, it's a descriptive run-down with a few comments.
Tekton has been going long enough and Stereophile has never reviewed any. So I conclude there must be some issue about them for John Atkinson and Jim Austin.
So it will be very interesting if Brian Damkroger can convince Jim they need a full review. For my money, I would like to read one as opinions about Tekton are extremely polarised (to say the least).
this sad, lame person has 328 posts in 60 days since ’joining’ via this username
you see the ’system’ posted under the username?? and then in posts there are mentions of 20-30 thousand dollar dacs and amps... wtf... the joke is indeed on us if we take any of this drivel seriously
i would say he/she is exactly who you think he/she is... i just don't understand what is the nature of the sickness that leads someone to persistently carry on with this
To add to @wolf_garcia ’s spot on post, I think one of the last straws was when he posted a movie clip that’s dialogue with a homophobic slur and the ’N’ word in a thread titled ’Is This Black Enough For You?’
What in the world was he thinking??!
Speaks volumes about the man. And, yes. I understand the premise of the clip.
I have no idea of the history that's being referenced here but I will say I had the opportunity to speak with Chuck (on the phone) and it was a great extended conversation with a knowledgeable, experienced individual who has a well rounded perspective.
Unfortunately rare in this industry, I look forward to the opportunity to catch up with him again.
Kindest regards, Thomas Foti
After reading his posts from all that time he was on this forum, it was nice to meet him in person. He doesn’t look at all like Einstein! Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to really listen at any length to that setup. That's the downside of working at the show. I can only say that what I did hear (can’t remember what tracks now) made a positive first impression.
