The gauntlet has been thrown down...
"I'm sufficiently confident now after careful evaluation by both expert and amateur third parties and numerous demonstrations to claim that our new DM5s will easily outperform, by a considerable margin, most passive speakers. Sounds impossible if you're unfamiliar with the enormous benefits of good active design, but on oath I'd swear that it's true. All comers welcome to hear these things by appointment, especially if you have really expensive hi end.
Earlier updates say the ADM5s will be shipping in October.
Some nice veneers too.

Just the usual propaganda from the AVi fans. I wonder if they get paid?
This is just bonkers. What a bizarre statement.

HC = iphone + headphones
I have no wish to be the bearer of unpleasant tidings, but I was personally quite disgusted at some of the additional statements being made, with respect to very derogatory remarks about one of the mods on this forum, and urging the faithful to more or less spam this forum with ultra positive comments on the 5's when they are released.
Not the behaviour that I would expect from a professional company.. but then, I've seen this sort of behaviour from other companies before, so it's not really a precedent per se.
But very unpleasant, and not necessary IMHO.
Jonboi , what are you talking about ? Derogatory remarks about another human bean ? Well , at least that doesn't happen over here .
By the way, Chebby, this is the second time you've started positive threads about AVI. Any particular reason?
Ashley's own words from the company facebook page.
My only contribution is posting it and a bit of highlighting.
I can't possibly have any opinion on their performance (positive or negative) because I haven't heard them.
Stupid post then really....................

Talking about some comments made by AJ on the AVI facebook page.
Doubtless everyone will have different interpretations.
Gentleman, my email is running hot from AVI members, asking for explanation as to my comments, and also from AJ of AVI, with some very choice words of his own - and not polite ones either.
It has been suggested that I should not have commented, as my comments were interpreted as misleading, and unfair.
There were a few other choice words directed at me as well, but I'll avoid commenting on the personal insults.
Fair enough, people get angry, as do I, and people say things in hot temper.
As an AVI member has suggested via email, rather than comment further, I'll simply say in my defence that I commented in the manner that I did, as I felt angered by the remarks I read, but meant no spiteful attack in my comments.
As also suggested by the aforementioned AVI member, here is a copy/paste of what I read, and what annoyed me and caused me to comment thus:
I'm happy to let the readership here decide if I was being misleading or unfair by commenting in the way that I did upon this AVI statement,
I've just been informed that I've been banned from AVI forums, for commenting as I have about the above, and for bringing it to the readerships and John Duncans attention.
I find that interesting, as in over 13 odd years of writing and/or contributing to many hobby forums, I've now been banned from two; Naim and AVI, and basically because of brand politics and marketing with which I've disagreed with, and spoken out against.
and the bo##ock# continues.
bunch of bloody kids if you ask me................. everyone needs to
Does this mean he won't sell me some Ebony DM5s?

I think it means that he really, really, doesn't like you.
Nor me now it would seem... *sigh*
My HiFi world has ended....
I doubt you'll pass the AVi physical....

Oh well (on all counts).
However, at least you can rest in the knowledge that you introduced him to the benefits of Class D amplification.
I've just been informed that I've been banned from AVI forums.
We wish you well with a speedy recovery and we hope it has no long term effects.
