It would seem one can argue with a vehemence that requires use of terms such as "bollocks", "a load of nonsense" or "only an idiot would make such claims" so long as one is singing from the same hymn book as "The Management"... but as soon as you are arguing against certain entrenched opinions, the use of such terms suddenly becomes "unacceptable", "playing the man not the ball" or "insulting to forum members".... Just saying
    Point taken. I shouldn't have used such strong language. If I had a time machine, I'd travel back in the past and change that word to 'arrogant'.
    Don't you just hate it when you cannot detect where the post ends and a signature line begins?

    Yes, Alex, slap yourself on the bum!

    I hear you Jez, and it's a fair point, but Alex only typed his 'objectionable remark' an hour and a half ago, and indeed whilst I was out. Therefore, having only got back in, I've just seen your post and his! If I'd seen it, before, I'd have sorted it.

    Do remember in future that both the mods and I have lives outside of AoS, and so that not everything posted on the forum will always be picked up on instantly

Having said this my point is that top-class sound is far more expensive via the pure analogue route than vs. well-sorted digital i.e. I think 2k of proper digital will take over 10k of proper analogue to beat.
    I'd be WELL up for that, Neil, so we'll definitely do it. Just need to get our new kitchen finished first, as the hi-fi room is currently full of kitchen shite!

    Should be done before the end of June though, so we'll hook up then

    Arrogance seems to have two functions;

    To backfoot and disturb the recipients into a subservient disposition by intimidation, and/or

    To allow the arrogant person to believe unrealistically that he knows more, is superior, or has a much stronger position than he has in reality.

    In both people it is an imaginary status which is operating in the minds.

    The cause of arrogance, or why it is displayed, is loneliness.

    Or maybe they are lonely because they are arrogant?

    What prompted those comments, Dennis? I don't see what relevance they have on this thread....

    Hi Brian,

    Could I just confirm which member owns the system you're referring to and where he lives?

    What I always do in instances like that, is quote *exactly* what I'm referring to (from the post in question), then reply directly underneath that, which makes it absolutely clear what my post is in reference to
