Posting measurements without listening impressions is telling only half the story, some would almost consider it lying.
I used to pay a lot of attention to measurements/ specs. From watts, frequency response, slew rate,damping factor,the, etc. Then I learned what really mattered was how a amp sounds. Quality of watts. I've heard a 18 watt Lamm that would out class a lot of 200 watt "perfect spec" amps. In the end you always have to listen.

I think Mr Weiss unfriended me just now on Facebook. One minute he was on my friends list and the next he was gone. Don't know if I will be able to sleep tonight now. Woe is me, Woe is me.

BPig said something about Rich. Just wondered what was going on. Is there a masked man involved in this scandal?

So for my efforts at preparing for the next B.A.S.S. meetup, I get a shitstorm of flack from Carver forum users. Apparently, the fact that my testing revealed that a certain Carver vacuum tube amplifier didn't come close to its advertised specs has upset the audiophools who don't want the fact that the emperor is naked to be revealed.
With that sort of attitude, why should I even bother to host these meetups? They place a significant burden on me and a good deal of unnecessary stress, which I can do without at my advancing age. Just look at the disgusting responses. Is this how people show appreciation?

He never did figure out what was wrong with the amp, just like I predicted. Great diagnostic skills.

I've come to check in and give y'all an update, but what do I find? Hostile sarcasm and a false claim about "bashing" a Carver amplifier. Since when does making and publishing objective measurements amount to 'bashing'? I do realize there is a percentage of 'audiophools' who don't want it revealed that the emperor is naked, but cognitive dissonance reigns supreme in our culture today, so I'm not going to waste my time arguing over nonsense. I do the measurements. You decide if the specs are 'good enough' for you.

It takes quite a bit of planning and preparation to put together these meetups. At my advanced age, I could do without the additional unnecessary stress. If no one appreciates the efforts, then I shouldn't waste my time.



Mark, you have to be one if not the biggest asses i have ever seen here. I have tried to ask you to make sense of some of the crap you posted on facebook only to be un friended. You have the skin of a snail when it comes to any kind of desend on your beliefs. Now on that crap about measurements and the emperor being naked, yeah, the naked truth is that you can dish it out, but fuck off when it comes time to take any criticism.

Now, now. Seems I tried to give you ALL a heads up well over a year ago. Was it because I had tits this 'person" thought he could 'smash' me and I would just ignore and no one would believe me when I spoke of it? Maybe!

Hell, no. Not maybe. Everyone did ignore. Maybe thought it was funny - 'The pigster bashed Shortake - ha ha ha. '

I can relate because now I find it funny it happened on a much lesser scale to some of you.

I won't feel sorry for you all now LOL. I will just put on my TYS shirt and sit and chuckle. He will be back. Fences will be mended, and eventually he will be big enough to stay and take it like the pig he is.

BTW, he is on the other forum too. Sure wish I knew I could play over there, but I'd likely end up in that sandbox. Doesn't sound so bad, actually. Ever really roll around in the sand?

And if I could pass this cold on, I'd do that, too.
