Fixed.

I remember because I saw the thread as it developed. Sadly the heavy handed censoring has just gutted the true sense from it.

There were posts from regular members and MOT that expressed what I thought were well founded concern over the behavior and attitude of the maker and his supporters. You'll notice there's still a post putting everyone on notice that if they received any consideration for their opinions it would be dealt with severely. There were posts that made that necessary. All gone now.

Because there's ANOTHER fanboi device that's come out, to replace the POS hifiman devices. I guess there's a movement to finally rebel against all these fake audiophile's and their bogus devices. I mean, did DFKT even get one to review? I doubt it,...total BS!!!

I'm going to buy me the Altmann micro player and pair it with the Final Audio Muramosa Headphone, that should be the most awersome and better sounding portable rig ever.

I bet I will be able to divide by zero and travel through space when listening .wav files with it.

Seems like there are alot of different kinds of unwashed sheeps. First you have the people who only buy iPods because thats all they know about and only use iBuds then you have these nutjobs who will willingly buy an overcharged piece of crap player for $1000 just because they are told that its the best,same marketing tactic as Apple lol Head-Fi and Apple have alot in common when it comes to their followers.

No no no. It's just the clamping force.

Don't believe all the crap hype. All of today's players sound essentially the same while some might sound slightly better as in the Sansa Clip line.

I like the part in the video where the guy spouts off all of this vague, obfuscating, golden-eared rambling. That's the best part. Well, except the part where he talks about how his mom keeps interrupting him and the damn thing doesn't even have a pause button so he has to start the track over!

Why do you even bother making fun of that player? It's like making fun of a quadriplegic retard who things he's the king of the twin universe. That's just evil of you!

But I'm kinda serious. That player is on the same level of silly like that legendary $999 I'm rich iPhone app. Or like a golden-plated Rolls Royce. It doesn't matter how much it costs, if it's more than $50 it's overpriced anyway. Everyone with a slice of a brain knows what it is. There really is no need to flame about it. Think about it

You'll notice this thread was dormant for months until the hypester his posted vid here. It's been up on headfi for a month. What made him post it here now? Hmmm? Perhaps because a related product was making people hurt themselves laughing with it's silliness?

I don't see any flames here. Just members that feel somewhat insulted by someone who seems to be clueless about both audio and what this site is about reviving a thread about this POS with "It sounds so good".
