    Kinda pointless, being contentious then backing out!

    I didn't take it as Jez being contentious Gary.
    It was pretty clear to me that he's saying he doesn't go for the idea, a bit like those who are not into the idea of cables etc and that's cool.
    For that reason I don't feel he has to explain - its cool and life's too short

    Then why did you ask for an explanation?

    I think we shouldn't criticise those manufacturers who have a different opinion from our own regarding component isolation, mechanically or even magnetically. A lot of people, myself included think that adequate isolation of components us sensible, and more so with TT and valve amplification.

    Although I haven't tried it I'm sure I might hear something if I sat there tapping caps or transistors while playing music - but resonance in room during play are of a magnitude smaller - but still worth avoiding if possible, especially depending on location in room and support material.

    Obviously because I was curious as to what his reasons might be.
    It's clear by his later response (post 9) that he doesnt want to go there and as I say that's fine with me. There are plenty of other members on the forum.....

    I agree that everyone has an opinion and be beyond criticism, which is the case in this sequence.

    Not quite sure what you mean but what is there to criticize ? If he doesn't want to go into the whole explanation thing then that's fine (cables, isolation can be a bone of contention which he's probably trying to avoid - no probs) or do you want him hung drawn and quartered

    I was trying to avoid a potential repetition of the cable thread. Everyone has an opinion and asking for explanations and suggesting someone is being contentious sounded like it was going to escalate. I think we can all give our opinion based on 'our' experience but should avoid assuming it's true for everyone.

    Peace, love and free marijuana for everyone man...

    I never said anyone was being criticised, quite the opposite, I havn't threatened anyone with violence, no idea where that came from, and I'm pretty sure people can speak for themselves.
