I think that's all relative.  My tolerance for cruft has seriously deteriorated.

I mean, besides, isn't it all about the signal to noise ratio?

It is a little masochistic. Sometimes I get the feeling that persisting with the HF forums is like stuffing your scrotal sac into a bacon slicer, but maybe I am a slow learner.

I see.  I didn't realize that had happened.

I didn't know he divorced his wife.  That's more fun than any headphone related topic!  Of course that Cavalli is now Headfi new darling.

she divorced him. and for really good reasons too. ray is very abusive  (no one saw that coming)

i'm sure others can point to ray's wedding photo, was on his facebook account... She did not look happy, but hey ray has lots of money.

and a couple of expensive and now horribly out of date cars.

Quick update for those interested in PriceJapan.com - site is no longer displaying any content. This at least means that no more folks can be purchasing goods that never materialize, so perhaps that is a good thing.

EDIT - just launched a dispute with PayPal - then noticed the 6 month time limit. I placed my order on 24th April, and had until 24th October to launch a dispute. Good thing I didn't wait any longer. For anyone else left hanging by PriceJapan.com, I suggest raising a dispute with PayPal or your whatever facility you used for payment asap. Doesn't look like these guys are coming back anytime soon.

I also emailed him. Told him the dude from Florida is a well-known scammer who preys on Stax dealers. :)

It all started when I got the BHSE/O2 and realized how great it is.  I mean, you can't blame me.  You must be a hop, skip and jump from the guy, get in your car and check them out. :)

That website is full of scams, last year they had a Nagra HD DAC, with optional PSU, optional platforms and Nagra CD player, all for 5000€.

Dragging one of the images to google showed that the same images were in Audiogon (which, of course, was the real ad).

From the main page of the website:

I think I am about to be banned form the Utopia thread after posting this:

From gullible HeadFi fuckhead regarding cable burn in (a bullshit concept in a world full of audio bullshit):

...I am told it needs at least 100 hours of burn-in.

My Reply:

For the love of Christ, why? What can possibly change in the properties of the cable from 100 hours of use, or 100,000 hours of use?

Has anyone, anywhere, ever, been able to blind A/B test and separate a burned in cable from a fresh cable?

Sorry to get mildly belligerent, but the cable silliness needs to be challenged at some point.

So, will this get banned form the thread, or from all of HeadFi? I wonder. I will wear a total HF ban as a badge of honor. Kind of like growing up and moving from small boy pants to adult trousers like a grown up.

I call fucking BOLLIX on cable sonic differences in general and cable burn in specifically.
