3. There is MUCH to be said about consistency regarding human experience and perception.
Yes, in Plato's Theatetus, we learned that perception is NOT knowledge-- the senses can report erroneous information. However, for example, when 80 out of 100 people say that a specific CDP is very good, there is bound to be some validity in investigating the claim further. I am not asking other people to make a decision for me. I am gathering information from people who have had direct experience with this gear. It will not neccessarily be the end of the endeavor. Progressive audio does not carry ANY of the CDP's in question. It would simply be a matter of good chance that they might have some of the used CDP's on my list. Further, they happen to carry Proac, MIT, and Spectral- the very foundation components that are contained within my system. This is an investigative process, and I am seeking all sources of knowledge on the subject. What you gave me, however, was self-evident and rather patronizing. Moral center?? I think I hear the turkey calling....

Sorry, bub.
My intent was to make a joke and have some fun, as indicated by the wink & smile ;-) Get it?! I was having fun with the remark you made about the dealer being 100 miles away, which could indicate thet you didn't want to make the drive.
I was not saying that you were unable to come to your own decision either, but there is a lot of that kind of insecurity around here. I am NOT the first nor will I be the last to encourage someone to make up their own mind.
I was also taking a swipe at people who believe everything they read here, or pump a dealer for info & expertise, then screw him by buying off the Internet, then bitch later about there being no decent dealers...another common bitch on the 'Gon)
I wasn't looking for a pontificating theological speech (quoting Plato? pulleeze!) full of irrelevant generalizations about what people (qualified or otherwise) think around here, nor was I deserving of your unnecessary snobbery and nastiness.
Excuuuuuse me!
I'm out...
What happened to my thread??? Golden Ears: My intent was to gather information and what I get is someone who steps up on a soapbox and then becomes indignant when I confront the misplaced comments. Go to a different forum if you want to discuss buyer's ethics. And, it might be a good idea not to make assumptions about intentions in posting a thread such as this one. Your comments may well have been in jest, but they read as condescending, as mentioned previously. If the former is truly is the case, then I apologize for my abrasive reply. But there is nothing theological about a discussion of perception, especially when it is in direct relation to your assertion that my thread was pointless.
