Listening to words out of context with an understanding that seems to twist and misinterpret things as normality, then you know why you are wrong. It was two cancer diagnosed people doing the doctors waiting room comparisons of symptoms. BOTH of those people are NVD (no visible disease) but both keep it that way by taking pills, and as with all pills they have side effects, especially cancer ones.

Do you want to know mine then we can let this go and you can stop being silly.

1/ I get the shits and have to take imodium (loperimide) in quantity.
2/ I have light sensitive and dry eyes
3/ My skin is thin and cuts and bleeds easily, including internal surfaces especially lungs. So I am instructed not to lift heavy weights as a lung surface rupture could be fatal.

Aggravating but better than being dead.
I genuinely didn't mean to offend with the health thing Doc. I'm serious, no twists etc.

Well maybe it will make you think before you open your mouth or keyboard, perhaps think more before you post, or become a shill for someone, or say things to try and lead opinion from a severely lacking of knowledge position. You need to learn and listen not spout - at the moment you have Marco problem, you think you know it all and in reality you know bugger all.

Ad hominem but needing to be said.

I will let that stand as one ad hominem to balance mine, your reply is very intelligent and lucid, isn't it. Does it answer my opinion, no. AND I can assure it is many other peoples opinion as well that have expressed to me in conversation since the debacle of your involvement in the Bake-Offs, both the one abandoned and the one that happened.

EDIT - You removed "well fuck you" I think member need to see that as it shows why my response.

Well feel free to add it back to my original post.

Is this the same way you can confirm that I have been talking about you? Which you cant, because I haven't been. In fact, I can remember uttering a single word about you after the 7/8/17. You're of no significant to me.

It really doesn't matter anyway does it. It's nice to know I'm such a big topic for conversation though.

I don't need to answer your opinion, it's an opinion. Nothing I say will make any difference anyway. Truth is you have labelled me one way and that's your only Interest because it doesn't serve a purpose if I'm not the villain to your "slayer of spams and shills" persona. There will be no more from me on this subject. I only popped on to straighten a couple of bits of speculation out and yet again it's been nothing but brick bats and unsubstantiated claims of "talking in private via email and texts to warn people from meeting you" truth is, all they need do is look around the net to see the behaviour on display to do that" *AD HOMINEM!! AD HOMINEM!!!!*

The *people* who told me do not wish you to know *which* one of them told me, it is private, all you need to know is that it happened, and those people have sussed you.

Do you see how you change and the opinion and statements are not consistent, this one dismissing me as not worth talking about, before determined to get comments in about my health etc. The only consistency in you posts are their inconsistency, as others here have already told you, but you wont listen - Marco disease.

Update on AoS from Biggy (the man with the golden ears) with regards the arrival today of his new Jolida JD9:

Early signs are promising and the fact there are more upgrades available should mean it can get better.

It was never going to be anything different was it? Why he simply doesn't stop faffing about and save up for the Phono 2/extra PSU and be done with it? Problem is that if he did, the smoke rising from Wrexham would be visible from space :P

What would any sensible person do? Buy a Phono 2 or remain on AOS. Of course I am assured that there is no problem owning NVA or talking about it on AOS from the owner. So why are members scared to buy NVA or mention it? Perhaps he is scared of upsetting Firebottle even more?

You know, years ago I loved messing around with box-swapping, buying and selling at little loss (gear didn't appreciate in value back then and I bought at 'trade' prices, which weren't as advantageous as they are today). I have to admit that separate phono stages were few and far between and limited to the very cheap stuff, the Moth one with 'Black-Head' step-up (I seem to remember) and then a bit of a jump to ARC's confections costing several hundred quid minimum... Once I had the big active ATC's I kinda jumped off the ever-changing-gear 'tour bus' and never climbed back on. I can see the point as an ex-retailer (I can't change my history and don't see why I should deny it!), of people working their way up the upgrading ladder and in my case I did try to make it a genuine ladder of improvement rather than an occasional greasy pole, but some around and about the forums chop and change with absolutely no rhyme or reason and I have to button my lip with these people and let them spend/waste their money time after time as it's none of my damned business.

I blame HiFi World magazine a lot for this, testing valvey and other unheard-of stuff that few people buy in the real world, that really isn't very good out there and that then gets sold on at huge depreciation for the original buyer when he (usually a 'he') cottons on. The fact that HFW seemed to like it a few years ago gives it some kind of kudos and so the piece of kit does the rounds of the few dozen forum readers before it finally breaks under the strain. On the opposite end, you have to acknowledge Naim, as such is the cachet now around this brand, any of their gear fetches silly money for what it really is - and of course it doesn't usually fail until the circuits drift so badly off that the sound is so terribly bad it's totally unlistenable to everyone who hears it.
...I have renounced the worldly bustle and live in peace at a quiet place,
I live alone in this my heaven, in my love (and) in my songs.

He's now got his own dedicated thread titled "New toy - Jolida JD9 MKII" and even though the unit has only been at chez Biggy for barely a day, the plan is to tube roll the unit tomorrow! The mind really does boggle. How on earth can you get a feel for something new in your system and want to tinker so soon? Given that Il Duce likes to modify everything he has, so that in his own mind, it has a superior edge over what everybody else uses, Biggy and his golden ears really have landed at his ideal home. Its a match made in Wrexham :mrgreen:
