I voted for us to close the OT section, in spite of the fact that I REALLY LIKED and ENJOYED OT, some of it, anyway. It definitely seems for the betterment of our community.
The irony is that this THREAD has in effect gone off topic and is now reflecting private views the general membership don't even need to know about. It more like a Venting forum than anything else.
I appreciate that.....but where there are issues there are motives and that applies equally to anyone regardless.
What Giskard has said gives context but hightights what is so right and so wrong with what members come here for. ie If you want everything on your own terms set up a Blog. Everyone has an opportunity to be here but you will need to make some compromises and a lot of understanding and tolerance.
Sadly I am not convinced that is the case.
Politics and religion.
Best banned as topics in the interests of harmony and I therefore understand the actions and applaud.
Not too sure about Giskard's rant however. It seems to me you either want to develop a virtual community or provide a historical reference site for JBL. If "the company" wants an historical reference site "on it's own terms", why doesn't it pay for one and run it itself? That way, they won't get pestered by the great unwashed on a daily basis and can get on with the job of building great loudspeakers that no one wants to buy?
Some guys could of course leave their egos at the door on the way in
Not real sure what the great unwashed refers to. I have seen that term used a few times before here. It's kind of funny.
On the subject of loudspeakers - it seems the Array Series has been kind of a bust in Japan. While the performance is definitely there, and applauded, they can't get past the visual. In the US and Europe they are doing alot better because they are used for HT and end up being well integrated into the rooms so they're less visually apparent. Rumor is the Array Series will be replaced by a line of direct radiator loudspeakers similar to the Performance Series but at the same price points as the Array Series. All subject to change at any time of course.
Sorry Giskard, I missed it, could you possibly explain or point me in the right direction? All I can find is the rules which start...Don has already explained how the website came about and what JBL's involvement was with it.
Anyway, according to HiFi News review of the Array 1400, they suffer from overt and distracting horn colouration. I'd be interested to know what you think of this opinion - after all is the horn not as used by GT at home?The intent of this forum is to develop a community of people that share a common interest in the products and legacy associated with James B. Lansing. To that end, it is my intent to foster as wide ranging discussion as possible. There is even a place for non Lansing related discussion - the "Off-Topic" forum.
I have no idea who the reviewers are or what their backgrounds are so I can't really comment on their opinions. I do know that Greg finds some reviews amusing regardless of their bend.
It rankles that a few people here see fit to use this website as a free therapy regimen instead of paying for real professional therapy sessions. Freeloaders...
A few others need to stop coming here and start going to eHarmony, or someplace similar, instead of making this place their lifestyle.
