If you're one of those rare audiophiles who have some semblance of a life, you weren't on Audio Asylum yesterday for all the fist fighting and drunken brawling. It seems every few months the hardest of the hard core audiophiles get out the Winchesters and have a good ol' dustup over reviewing practices. While there's usually an argument buried towards the beginning of these threads, the dialogue typically devolves into "my tonearm is longer than your tonearm" sorta stuff. Here's a juicy sampler:
"YOU'RE A JERK OFF. Now call me "unprofessional" for labeling you what you clearly are...a JERK OFF."
"you are a fairy. piss off. "
"As far as I can tell, JA has never screwed my dog."
Ah, yes. This is what high end audio is all about. Go read the fun yourself, but unless you're a regular at the AA corral, this won't make a bit of sense. I know the back story and I can barely follow the current plot. I could tell you what's going on but, in truth, it's so boring, you'll regret wasting the time to find out (the picture above has something to do with it). Of course, the big dogs of the biz smashing whiskey bottles over each other's heads is always news worthy and loads of fun (relatively speaking, of course).
