Again, incomprehensible.

I asked "Please show me where I have implied my thoughts about 'a forthcoming review on The WAM'."

Now, show me where or withdraw your remark.

Bloody hell guys, looks like lockdown has started to erode the goodwill and live & let live ethos that's a big part of why this forum is better than most.

Personally I am mildly interested in the theory of cartridge decoupling but I cannot get excited one way or another by the Houdini. Now if someone was informing me funky Arthur was replacing Boris or Matt Hancock that could cause a stir but not the Houdini.

If someone accuses me of deriding a review that hasn't happened yet then they need to put up the evidence. Of course, there is no evidence as I have done no such thing. I've known George (who is going to do the Houdini review at the WAM) for about 3 years. He is a very experienced enthusiast and a thoughtful and thorough reviewer. He's also a very personable fella. The last thing I would be doing is deriding any of his reviews, let alone one that he hasn't yet written.

I definitely have more enjoyable things to do, but if someone wants to accuses me of something, and follow it up with personal insult, then they need to answer. He either proves me wrong or he withdraws his remark. One or the other, and it is then forgotten and we can all go back to the music.

Withdrawal accepted. Assuming your emoji is meant to say 'peace' and not 'bullshit'?

I might roll my eyes or laugh at some of the Houdini marketing but there is no chance that I would deride George.

George seems to be just what's needed, I am looking forward to hearing his thoughts on this contentious addition to the music world

Your emoji says 'Bullshit'? Did you mean to say that?

I don't think the Houdini is contentious. It appears to be a more engineered version of what already exists - Cartridge Man Isolator, Origin Live Cartridge Enabler.

What seems contentious, to me, are the claims made for it by Funk and the way it has been promoted.
