I don't have all these posts just bookmarked off hand, and overall, Timbernation appears to have a good rep. The link posted above by tangelo is one I have come across, and there are perhaps one or two more floating around other audio forums I have read in the past week or so, that would maybe give me pause. I'm not really expecting a diamond at coal prices, but I just wanted to kind of confirm the overall "good value for the money" rep that seems to be there by most people. No product, no matter how good or how cheap, will escape scrutiny by overly picky people, nor will any manufacturer put out a perfect product all the time, but that doesn't mean they are a bad manufacturer. Those things I understand, but just wanted to make sure that overall, this was a place I would feel good about spending some money at. This thread definitely continues that positive trend I keep hearing about.
