PS: I'm hoping we'll get to some discussion of brand names in some of the more detailled posts - to guide the guys who want to buy or upgrade a PA (oops - SRS). Unless the moderators are of the view that this may promote covert advertising or lead into a slagging of potential sponsors?
HHMMMMMMMM......!!!. Yup. This is a difficult one. Lets see what Alan thinks.
Gear discussion is one of the things we're here for guys. As long as there are no direct solictations for sales of new products or services. You want direct promotion, approach us for our (very reasonable) ad rates. Also no out-and-out shilling for products by members with affiliations - I have given up or turned down endorsements and agencies from a number of prestigious brands so that I can be neutral, so I don't appreciate it when others with vested interests aren't.
Unlike some, I'm of the opinion that slagging is OK where slagging is due (view my stance on modern Gibsons for proof). Even the best manufacturers have had some lemons through the years, and we are all entitled to our opinions and to air them. Just be prepared to accept that others may have opinions to the contrary and are also entitled to air them in response. Also, don't get nasty when criticizing/defending a product.
Having said all that, Crown/Amcron amps and EV speakers are the best in my personal experience...
