    I'm not really sure who's trolling who anymore.

    That's the side of the fence I'm standing on, as well; it's the thin-skinned 'umbrage' being affected that I deem offensive.

    Re: I thought I had OCD on audio....then this dude comes along....

    The thread title is just odd, with no reference to his accomplishments or bio.

    The thread just seems odd to me, but who cares this is the internet.
    Burwen is a legendary designer, not just an EE - you don't know what you are
    talking about or you are trolling to inflame more people. You look ignorant to
    me to be making such statements, but really I think you are trolling.
    "EE that designed noise circuits " haha, nice bait for trolling.

    reading through this post makes me think it must be that time of the month for a lot of people. just because some one was an EE that designed noise circuits means you can not poke a little fun at the wall of electronics, that is ridiculous looking by any standards, even if it does sound great. if this post truly makes you sad, you have other issues you need to deal with. come on, lets have a reality check time out.

    I thought perhaps being mounted within the horn itself, with all those amps and the advanced signal processing at Burwen's disposal ( perhaps shading? ) that...
    But the proof would be a taste of 'is pudding ;)

    Well said sir. Well said.

    I actually thought about the trolls coming out when I posted this. However, I weighed that against what I thought was cool, different than what I had seen before, and went ahead with it.

    No I took it as saying that is a lot of crap. It's a crude blue collar way of saying a lot of stuff. I have a lot of crap in my garage. Some of it is good crap and some is bad crap.

    A sad state of affairs;

    People have no perspective when they make a comment about the "preamp" which is an active crossover, equalizer and multi channel hand built device, in a time when there was no store bought options.

    All I have to say...nice surround system!!!! another audio genius who gets it ...lol

    Pfffffft, whatevs. I gots a Sony xplode sub. It don't shake. It goes BOOOOOOOOOM, YO! Just like the dynamite.

    I was initially so busy looking at all the fancy twisty knobs, that I didn't see the laptop in the photo. :D I just got my first P4. Can I be a techy nerd now, too?
    I kid. I couldn't even afford the floor mats for an enzo. :D
