  1. Now that is something I would say that (almost ) everybody can agree upon. IME, any Jeep is a steaming pile of crap.
  2. @blybo Fair enough mate, everyone's experience is anecdotal and people can only speak to their actual experience and that is both the good and not so good aspect of threads like this, as in, nobody's experiences are more ( or less ) valid than anybody else. I know from family and many other instances, just how un-cooperative and recalcitrant VW can be when things go (very ) wrong but I am pleased yours was far better. You love 'em, I hate 'em, neither is wrong .
  3. Yes you can . if the CEO is an arrogant schithead, it reflects the ethos of the entire organisation, right down to the dealer and so it has proven in their response to problems experienced by customers. As @metal beat correctly said, companies are judged by what transpires when a problem occurs and their response to that problem. Of course, any brand or company is fine if you don't have any problem ever, but that is hardly the point. Good companies in any industry are rightly judged by what they do and how they respond when things go pear shaped. It is just customer service 101 and I would never presume to tell you what that means, as I am sure you do it all the time in your own business.
  4. I am pretty sure that there is a Benz house sound signature, which I stress is certainly no bad thing, but if you are seeking a change I think it is better going with another brand. Perhaps a Hana SH/SL or a Dynavector DV-10X5. Either would leave you a lot of cash in your pocket and do a great job.
  5. An objective and cogent statement no doubt, better annotated with IMO.
  6. Thanks Terry, I am relieved I am not the only one on this line of thought, it has been bothering me for sometime. Certainly is. The last time I experienced this was back in the 1980's in Sydney at a certain French restaurant. The owner and chef made a point of telling customers how they lacked any understanding of cooking and were commensurately ill informed about food. ( This may seem OT but I think it is a decent simile ) The weird thing was that people bought into it and he was booked out months in advance. This situation isn't about a restaurant though and food is nothing like amplifiers. **I also wish March Audio every success**
  7. As you can see ,they are front ported, so it is slightly less critical, but it is still better for just about any speaker if it has some space around it, preferably 50 CM from any wall, either rear or side and never in a corner.
  8. Yep. The real problem is that on the test drive these ( VW/Skoda / are really good. Many people momentarily forget about the (ongoing) problems with the cars, the dealers attitude to warranty claims and the mid-to-long -term reliability. They really are fool's gold.
  9. No problem. I hope you stay around and join in the discussions.
  10. How about you make some posts on topics of interest while you are waiting? I am sure you have a story to tell about some nice gear that you like. Gumtree is this way >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
  11. Thanks Daz. I am still procrastinating on the streaming caper.
  12. I like tarragon myself, but basil is nice. Apologies to the OP. This is well regarded and at a good price.
