Sir, I don't think you get the point.
 

 

I said no such thing. Are you sure you don't need mental help? That might be a case of dementia. Either that or you're taking me out of context.

 

 

The point is, your precious THX AAA doesn't make it in to this list, nor should the list be deleted.

Yeash you contradict yourself left and right and when called out on it you claim I have mental issues? Sounds like you have a lot of problems.

Here's a tip: Make your own thread about your precious THX AAA 789. If people like it, fine. Telling someone else to delete their thread because that amp exists is stupid.

I just made a suggestion that the amp should be included. And stupid is contradicting yourself 3 times every message and then telling the other person they have mental problems.

Every other amp recommendation is now obsolete unless you can't afford the $350 price tag on this puppy.

Also massdrop is absolutely an option for everyone you just sometimes have to get their products from other people/retailers. That doesn't mean the product itself doesn't exist. And I wasn't aware this amp colored the sound at all. I thought it was unbelievable accurate and efficient. Which goes back to my point: Delete your thread, pack up all the boxes, it's over. Everybody go home.


If i'm contradicting myself, you're a massive hypocrite then.

 

 

Again, point still stands, your THX AAA "suggestion" does not fit here.

Seemed like you were pretty serious. You're either bad at sarcasms and metaphors, or you're actually trying to cover up the fact that you messed up.

Seems like you're really bad at picking up on social cues, possibly autistic. I mean how could he recommend the amp if he deleted the thread? Should be instantly obvious I wasn't literally telling him to delete the thread. Also there aren't any boxes to pack up and most of us already are home. For someone without mental damage that contradicts themselves constantly it was pretty obvious to figure out I wasn't being literal.

Oh, I don't know, maybe because its the internet? Where social cues were already either autistic or dead freaking serious this recent decade?

It also said nothing about "suggesting" the amp.

Or maybe you're just covering up for your mistake.

Admit it, you messed up.


Point is, THX AAA 789 sonically doesn't fit the list and is behind a time-wall that's dictated by Massdrop.

Or maybe admit that:

1.) You messed up
2.) The THX AAA isn't good enough to be on the list of recommendations due to not only how it sounds, but also the process of even purchasing one
3.) YOU are the one that should seek help

1) Please tell me if I messed up and literally meant for him to delete the thread how he would recommend the product I suggested in it. Tell me what the point of that would be. Tell me what boxes should literally be packed up. Tell me how people that are likely already at home could literally go home. Go on. I'll wait.
2) Sounds like you're upset. Even in the review/measurement you yourself linked to it was incredibly highly praised so please tell me how it doesn't sound good enough to make this list just because you aren't intelligent enough to use a shipping service?
3) For the past several messages all you've done is repeat your same contradictions and unable to even believe in them yourself anymore you are now just repeating the same line. Admit defeat and I shall make sure your death is a painless one. (Please do not be alarmed and contact admins/police this is not to be taken literally. I know you have problems with that so I've included a disclaimer)

You messed up in how you tried to present your metaphor. If anything, you basically said that the amp recommendations are irrelevant passed the THX AAA's price while being disrespectful to the OP.

Sounds like you really don't get the point. Its the proxy services as its not available to a good chunk of EU and Asia. And when it comes to measurements, there are little to no agreeable values in measurements or even measurements that says anything about timbre, staging, separation, etc...

So, get over it. You messed up.

I don't think this is the right thread to ask the question.

Should this thread not be removed as pinned, does not seem to contain nothing other than bile.

Uhm what? There are simple explanations to the basic terms and recommendations to gear in the more entry and mid range level segment of DACs and amps, why is this "bile"?

Yeah that exchange went rather poorly, but I don't think that he is because of the remove thread comment.

nope.. but it does need cleanup.. 

 

but i do know than 90% of these threads are no value adding throwing bricks at eachother, and the main problem is, that the thread looses it´s value, so starting a new one with the same topic, and removing this might be the answer... or cleaning it up..

 

because i do feel the topic is really interesting.

 

personally i am looking into something a bit more powerful amp wise, and i was looking here to see what people were chatting about. but were put off by this nonsense in the last few pages.

well the last few pages are out of my control, I can't control what people write. The post is mainly for newbies, which means that I can't go too technical and need to keep it basic to not scare away people.

I try and keep my main post updated as much as possible with new DAC and amp recomenndations, but ofc I can't update it every time something new comes out.

I do agree that there could be cleaned up in some of the replies.

 

Ofc if you want gear added or a topic/term added then feel free to say so.

Hey Dackzy just curious to know what you think of the monoprice  cavelli amp the monolith liquid spark seeing as you recommended the atom and magni. many enthusiasts seem to like it I got one mainly because of reception and availability in canada. My personal impresions are in a sense lovely gives me punchier bass but brighter mids and highs. And is worthy competitor to the magni and atom. I may have some bias here but after hearing the atom and magni myself. out of the 3 the atom sounds the best followed by the LS, build and knob feel is LS, magni, then atom.

Hi i haven't personally tried either, because monoprice is basically impossible for me to get where I live. I have personally mainly heard okay things about the monoprice cavalli amp, not so much the spark, the few times I have talked with people about it they have claimed that the atom would be a better buy than the spark. I will have to do some research to see if they are good enough to go on the list and maybe see if I can get a couple of loaner units so I can test them.
