Ian, be reasonable sir, you have brought this on yourself with the sweeping statement on your first post here. Many on here have decades of hi-fi experience and David is actually a hi-fi dealer so I'm certain there was no disrespect intended whatsoever. He is a very decent chap and has been a member for many years offering very sound advice to members.Well I feel that he/she did offend me. That's what sent me into stupid rage. And expressed me to say a completely (profanity deleted by moderation) statement like the superior ****. I'm no fool, but the new punchbag. If I waited ten more weeks I would have bought the Yamaha SA 1200 . Now I'm stuck with the 701. Two pairs. Important to me.
