So when are you guys gonna get a review from Greg Borrowman at Australian HiFi?

We've had every Hi End brand under the sun reviewed over the last 12 months.

Perhaps even a telephone interview.

We are all tired of that article on how "Power Factor Correction Improves Bass Response" from Halcro's B.C.

I would much rather read an informative article on the Rushmore or the AX by N.P. in a HiFi Magazine.

Depends on what you consider bad. There is always something
to fault in any product. The worst review I can remember was
about 1980 by Harry Pearson in Absolute sound on the Stasis 1.
He spent several pages discussing the decoding of surface noise
on vinyl, and then simply said "I don't like this amplifier very much."



Oh yeah, and Julian Hirsch blew out all the fuses on a Stasis 3
by clipping it at 20 KHz, and then proceeded to break all 4
fuse holders.

What does that tell you about the reviewer? Total d#mbass My ex-wife could achieve something like that
No offense I guess?

BTW I just have the oppertunity to listen to a Stasis 2 amp, and there is not much to dislike, if anything. It doesnt have this smooth kind of sound like Zen's and Aleph's, but nonetheless

Speaking of review issues here is one of the more colourful reviews on our board in recent times at Lansing Heritage.

The problem here was not so much the reviewer but the audience who shall we say on more than on occasion had a failing out with the ego driven and passionate designer Yuri Gutsatz of - PSS Audio.

The single posts of the review are polite and to the point.

And the flames and mushroom clouds from the audience...I think they hated this french designer....

http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...ght=PSS+review

The amp is actually very good as a class A/B amp, and although there are a few typos, not once did I spell Pass wrong as I was very careful to hide the identity of the reference amplifier.

I also had a lot of fun being involved in the tweaking process to arrive at the new Studio Reference Series.

And here a review that just came naturally and which was circulated around the factory & potentially plagiarised by the inventor from what I am told.
