    I mean come on, how is ADS not on there? It's like half of the threads in the speaker forum are about their products. And they're the best speakers ever made, regardless of price. So... make it happen admins.

    I don't think you are taking the right approach.

    I've tried taking the right approach, but google maps keeps taking me down the primrose path ... :oops:

    PS ... if ADS gets a forum, Moss Audio and Focal shouldn't be far behind? :banana:

    The list would seem endless..

    I guess the question is, why should every manufacturer have its own forum? Speaker forum seems to cover it all quite well.

    I do not think that we want to hear such a tone in our forum.

    ADS isn't as big a deal as the others. Also the more forums, the more work it is for our VOLUNTEER STAFF AND ADMINS.

    You want an ADS forum - set one up....

    It's actually quite simple. If SuperjazzyJa likes it, it will NEVER get its own forum. If SJJ doesn't like it, it'll get its own forum in one trillionth of a nanosecond. That's how life in general is. What I like and what's popular are polar opposites.

    If I worked for a record label, I would only sign bands I hated because their albums would go platinum within 1 second of release. Any band I liked would only sell one copy of each album: the one I bought.

    ADS does not belong with that august list of audio stalwarts. Being nice sounding or popular with folks here at the moment isn't enough of a pedigree. IMO.

    4-2-7's post illustrates that.

    As I stated before and there is empirical evidence to back it up, ADS is the most discussed, highly supported, well-liked speaker brand in the forum. I'm convinced the only reason ADS doesn't have its own forum is because they are defunct, so nothing to post about new shitty Chinese-manufactured but still well thought of for some reason info/ equipment heading our way.

    zunde - If I had just 123 posts I would perform here a bit more reserved, a bit less noisy. No offense intended, Sir.

    Soundesign is defunct also, so it should get its own forum! Who knows, we might find one in a flea market, and how else would we know if it was worth buying without it having its own forum? Perhaps we can also start a forum for British Knights shoes! :beerchug:

    ADS? Never heard of 'em. Is that an 'audio derangement syndrome'.
    (grin)
