There are so many anecdotes about audiophile antics, stories about
manufacturers, distributors, retailers, reviewers, and of course,
consumers. Coincidentally, I just heard one earlier this month so ...

My friend recently started selling products made by a French company
for the part of his line that was British for a long time. He switched
partly because the last time he sent an order to the British company's
distributor, he was told that his order couldn't be filled because the
manufacturer was reluctant to buy more faceplates. Of course, every
audiophile knows that faceplate thickness is strongly correlated with
performance :-)

So, two-channel audio equipment is becoming historical not because
consumers don't want it, but because the companies in that niche are
mismanaged, undercapitalized, etc.

Also coincidentally, I had dinner at a restaurant earlier this month
and noticed that the background music (Coltrane) sounded clearer than
usual. Their CD player had the fattest power cord I've ever seen, and
an 8mm brushed aluminum faceplate! Hmm ...

Hmm, it appears to have been pulled, as I get an "Invalid item number"
message. What was it?

The ebay flamewars merge with the versalab flamewars. Is it possible
to die from an overdose of irony?

<sarcasmoff > Thanks for posting this. </sarcasmoff> I can see where
the turntable experience came in handy in the development of this
grinder. Is this what happens when a record player and drill press get
locked in the shop overnight?
