    Aye. Good question. Not the place it used to be, has to be said. Tad.... boring, one could say, in comparison.

    When you have arrogant & conceited displays - something's has to give. And so you have people leaving, or being "removed". In the process, the forum is the poorer for it, I'd say. Or, less interesting.

    At the end of the day, it is only a hi-fi forum. There are other things in life to spend time on, like listening to music. I think we could all do well and follow André's example. Who he? I'm sure Mr Southall can fill you in.

    I think AOS has become old and stale ,
    Forum software out of date ,
    Get rid of abstract chat , Do we need 1 2 3 word daily , Bread , Coffee , Engine oil , Tyres , Weather Etc Etc ???
    It should be Art of Sound not another Facebook

    I went for months , Probably not much of a loss as I am mostly the forum clown , Not good at Tech things

    Time for change ?

    The above points have been duly noted and taken.

    Any Forum is only as good as its Members and how much they want to contribute. So if you don't like "1 2 3 word daily , Bread , Coffee , Engine oil , Tyres , Weather Etc Etc", then just ignore those threads and start a new one on something you do find interesting.

    There's no obligation to read any threads one is not interested in, and there's no obligation to keep logging on if one is not interested in the content.

    There are many fine and knowledgeable members on here, many in the trade and many with amazing skills and experience in the hi-fi world, so to say that all the best people have left is an asinine comment in my opinion, and exceptionally insulting to the members on here. What is it that makes you two so special and wonderful that places you in a position to insult everyone else on the forum?

    Audio Al, 89% of your posts are in Abstract Chat, so why the sudden yell for its closure? Very odd person indeed.

    Feel free to move on to another forum if you adhere to your words.
