Your EQ is showing up . I enjoyed your coverage and still state that I did. However for you I became a douche bcoz I was critical of your post? WowYou claiming (again) that no one was doing live show coverage- is laughable. And not disclosing your engagement with some of equipment early on (may be tips, non-monetary consulting, evaluation, whatever) is also hypocritical when you criticize other reviewers who do the same with Ads or $$ involved
Wow it's been a crazy time. We went from complete unknowns to 'slightly knowns' by some and it only took 10 years! I have enjoyed doing coverage. It's been a pain in the ass, a learning experience and one of the most incredible things I get to do every year. I've made a ton of new friends along both inside and outside of the industry and my friendship with Tyson has grown immensely as well. Just the coolest thing to go around arguing and laughing with that guy. Tyson you are the man! We kicked ass buddy and I’m proud to have done it with you!We started doing this because we HATED the way these shows were covered... What I hate in the industry are reviewers who go out of their way to prove their credentials. Golden earred pricks with business cards and advertisers. They may have near ideal hearing and a thesaurus full of superlatives at their disposal for all their favorite gear, but their advertising and bought/paid late night dinners with the Wilson rep lack something, clear conscious based honesty. No one had 'outsider' perspective. That's what I feel we brought to the table and hopefully changed forever!As far as the show itself. I do feel like we've left a lasting impact on the way coverage is done. Prior to us all you saw were online rags and old school mags posting show coverage several weeks after it all happened. And the content was very bland. 'here's the new dynaco 745 model speaker with MTM configuration. the box was built to minimize cabinet resonance and is made with a proprietary composite of blah blah blah it sells for $42,000. It sounds wonderful'. They're tethered by their advertisers and of course corrupted by it as well. No one was 'shooting from the lip' and giving honest opinions. It was funny, vendors didn't know how to handle us. We were lashed out at, called amateurs, biased etc etc etc. And most of the industry dismissed us. Now many of them have taken advice from us on occasion. That’s pretty amazing.I appreciate all the support through the years and really feel the love (sometimes hate, fair enough!!!) of this community. I hope we have ushered in an era of guys with laptops and a cameras pissing people off in ways we hadn’t even thought of yet! Because dammit! This industry has survived too long on backdoor deals and shady press!!!! Go get em guys.
You know, I've followed y'all through the years and admired your chutzpah. Perhaps you did change the future...
We've never taken money or tips or ANYTHING from ANYONE. Or engaged in "consulting" or whatever the hell you mean. People like you are the exact reason I'm fed up with this hobby and this forum. Fuck off.
Tyson and Jason,you guys ROCK Thanks for covering the show the RIGHT way. My favorite part of RMAF is spending time with you guys, Lou, Dan, Klaus, Rim, Scott, Marjorie, and the other friends I have met over the past 11 years.
Tyson- again where did I say you TOOK money - you seem to remind me of Fox News/MSNBC cable channel folks who play the victim and put unsaid words/meaning into one's mouth. Shame on you bro for playing that tactic. Please re-read- many folks have gotten products for evaluation and giving feedback. Nothing wrong with that- but honesty is about providing disclosure. The Mags reviewers do that for $$/Ad revenue and they don't disclose either (Some Ezines like 6moons are very transparent about it). But disclosure is key.
Again I was not talking about you Tyson-...I never quoted you on my first post on this thread -this circle is not always about you Profanity is not my thing for rational discussion or post or argument.
I am sorry there were online reviews and feedback from end users long before you started posting. Please don't claim to invent- this is laughable. Also speaking of industry affiliations- I find it hypocritical of folks here in AC (and A'gon too) do not reveal their association with companies or gear (either to provide feedback or reviews or to check products beforehand) and without disclosure make comments on the products. You know who you are Pretty distasteful IMHO to impugn integrity of other reviewers
back to a more friendly atmosphere...it was awesome meeting Jason and Tyson at RMAF. I met them at Lous cocktail party and we shared some good laughs. Def look fwd to hangin with you guys again. Your DEMO CD I played on Sunday, blew me away and I was glad you guys shared that same sentiment. Typical reviewers hear random recordings from room to room. Your simple formula of having a frame of reference makes all the difference in the world . I applaud your style , hard work and just being kool guys to hang with
(Some Ezines like 6moons are very transparent about it).
Thankfully these will be your FINAL thoughts.
