I guess NAD sold a whole bunch of 3020 amps because they were so crap, huh? Maybe that has some bearing on the reason why NAD are still in business while so many others have passed by the wayside.
Why don't you just say whinging pommie HiFi press?
"Digital Ready" in ads for speakers when CDs were hitting the scene.
I had a problem with 'Digital Ready' in regards to speakers, as well, until it was explained to me much later. It had to do with driver speed and control, for the companies that actually cared. For others it was just a buzz-word. They were still being driven by an analog signal and voltage. And probably only a very few speakers were truly handicapped by an analog presentation of a digital source medium.
I'm just not a fan of hype.
Edited to add: OK, Yeah. I bought a 2M Blue without ever having heard one. Sue me...
...it's so powerful, I can only stand it turned up to 3 (or some other random setting on the volume control)
"In good shape, for their age"
"They sound good, for what they are"
I've used "It's in good shape for it's condition" a few times when selling less than well taken care of gear on CL. It was more of a joke and the people who were interested picked up on it.
Good condition for its age. Why not just tell me what condition it's in.
Just seen the following:
It's got a big tranny (instead of transformer).
My favorite speakers are my Vandy's (instead of Vandersteen).
This is good! Lots of pent up anger being released in this thread!
"As the artist intended"
This phrase is SO overused, its needs a high 5, in the face, with a chair.
It's usually more about what the engineer or producer intended, rather than the artist...
"In vintage condition"
I need a speaker that can take the power of my 400W amp.
I've been seeing this a lot lately:
"Speakers have been recently reformed"
I think that takes the cake.
I've been there, done that.
-As an argument
- Instead of helping, sharing past experience with poster.
My : friend, uncle, reviewer, etc. says he was hearing things, meaning that everyone should hear them.
Horns are honky. WTF does that mean??
Oh absolutely! Really makes my BS detector meters flip out..
