    WTB - Racks

    And I really don't care for you either. It's my money and I asked how much it was (since the image popped up in this thread) and I believe 3k for that piece of furniture is a rip off. Just because you don't agree, doesn't make my point of view any less valid. Anyways, who made you a mod or admin who can dictate what others say in threads? Typical of bullies on Internet forums. One reason why they turn me off and I end up forgetting about them. mods - you just lost a user. advertisers - you just lost a potential customer. Oh and word of mouth does count. Dave

    Photography gear I can understand, although you can pay silly prices for it I agree. Usually, those wanting to spend silly sums on photography gear know what they're doing (say, a 500mm f4 for serious birding or motor sport shots as an example). A newbie wouldn't need such a lens, and wouldn't know why they'd prefer it to a cheapie 400mm/300mm option that's common garden. But the rack, as nice looking as it is, is simply a piece of furniture. Can you honestly tell me that the wood, design and construction really costs 3k? Sorry, I simply do not buy it, and nor does everyone that I've asked for their opinion of it. I don't wholly buy the thoughts that it provides an improvement in sound quality either. I think too many people imagine improvements - it's called a placebo. Blind testing seems to support my theory. Dave

    Oh, and by the way, your comments, and tone have an element of bullyism which I find offensive. So there. Dave

    You can't please them all. And to be honest, I don't really care what people think of me. If you're making a judgement about me based on a post on a forum, good luck with that. Dave

    3 grand for a piece of furniture? Are you guys even on the same planet, or are you just filthy rich with plenty of money to throw around... Dave edit: oh and the wood, and time taken to make the furniture would *never* justify that sort of cost either. Even if it's hand made. I could commission a carpenter/joiner to do a custom job for me that would be significantly cheaper and just as good imho. I could also make it myself, since I'm pretty good with wood working anyways. I was curious as to the cost as if it was *reasonable*, I'd have considered buying one, just to save myself the time and effort. 3k is not reasonable. BTW, the guys & gals at work laughed when I told them that it was worth 3k. I could probably survey thousands of people and get the same answer. I guess I should have expected something different, since some in the audio realm will justify spending thousands of dollars per metre for cabling...damn well silly if you ask me. Yes, it's your money. But, this is my money, and 3k to me, for that rack, is outrageously overpriced. Others don't have to like my viewpoint or comments, that's what freedom of speech is all about - I should be able to voice my comments without fear of persecution.

    You gotta be kidding, 3k? screw that, I'll make it myself. That's just a ripoff. Dave

    Mondie, how much do those racks go for (out of curiosity)? Dave
  8. http://www.ecn.net.au/~dpastern/senna_monaco_91.mpeg There ya go! Dave
  9. Actually, I had a look for it half an hour ago to show a mate @ work but could only find one really crappy version...admittedly it was a quick look, probably could have found a better copy if I'd spent more time. Dave
  10. I could procure a copy for you, although it's not in very good condition. I'll do it tonight when I get home from work and will figure out a way of getting it up on my website so you can d/l it. Dave
  11. wow that musical fidelity turntable looks HOT. If I had the money, I'd probably consider that for the looks alone! Dave
  12. Yes, I have that very footage on my Creative Zen mp3 player - watched it several times last night in fact. Senna is amazing through turn 3 at the top of beau rivage. Dave
  13. I'd have killed to have seen Senna race live. Dave
  14. Here's my DAC - DPA PDM 1 Series 3. 2 box affair, 4 optical cables connecting each section. Dave
