In that case I am a complete imbecile. I spent over £5000 on a pair of used speakers on ebay without inspecting them first.
Well of course you have no comment, as you haven't heard the particular speakers I'm referring to. Despite me offering to bring them round to your house to compare against your ADM40's. Despite me offering to share my room at Scalford in March this year so that we could have compared them at a neutral venue fairly close to your home. Despite me having an open offer for you to bring your speakers to my place in Yorkshire at any time with a bit of notice.
If you or anyone else ever does take me up on my offer to compare my speakers against any speakers that they happen to own they would then be in a position to comment on whether I had been a complete imbecile in buying them or not.
i love it, some one tries to post a useful word of caution about a pair of speakers for sale on eBay that look a bit dodgy and it STILL turns into a b**ch-fest! Talk about petty.....
And with that, I think I'll give up on the WHF forum for good. Goodbye.

It's always the forum that loses, when reasonable people leave.........stay and fight!

Relax, I'm sure your speakers are just fine and that you're not an imbecile.
But, inevitably, you'll come creeping back - just to watch - (at least that's what you'll tell yourself at first). The circular, Moebius-loop arguments; the petty assertions and grandstanding. They all have a relentless, siren-like call when you're at a loose end and, before long; like the Millenium Falcon caught in the Death Star tractor beam, you'll find yourself inexorably sucked into the fray again and doing battle with the Stormtroopers of Stupidity.
Only without a lightsaber which, let's face it, would make this place a hell of a lot more fun!
And with that comment, labelling all this forum's 260,000 members as 'Stormtroopers of Stupidity', I think this thread has served its purpose...
