How does a tiny insignificant brand manage to wind up so many people?
Because they make extremely good HiFi
Or do you think AJ is the only person worthy of respect??
I think he's the only person with any accountability in this. It's his business and his capital and his living and he may run it as he chooses.
You, and the people who troll and criticise about Ashley and AVI, do so with no accountability or responsibility.
That doesn't count for much in my book.
If AJ had treated other companies, and individuals with some respect and courtesy, he likely wouldn't be getting the flack he is now.
Think about it JC
Courtesy costs nothing.
I'd also add that I'm not trolling, and I'm certainly not criticising AVI product
I am however, sick to the back teeth of AJ's manner in the way he treats people, and especially of late me, and I'm standing up for myself.
Is that OK with you? Or do you think I should just lie down and suck up the insults?
I can't help feeling that everyone involved in this debate is losing.
It's doing audiophiles everywhere a disservice. Could I suggest the thread is closed; the slight loss of 'free speech' would be more than offset by the benefits to our hobby in general
(and please note I'm not on one side of the argument or the other)
Its not the brand,
Its the morons who advertise and support it.................
I agree. However, in terms of public relations, they're a complete disaster...
By subcontracting the winding-up to trusted partners, rather as they do their electronics manufacturing to an outside supplier, contrary to the claims above that
'And so on February 22nd 1966, at Luton airport...'
JMac/JB, frankly I'm bored by reading your repetitive diatribes. You had plenty of warnings about your behaviour on the AVI forum. You persisted and finally you were banned. What else can anyone say.
To use this forum as your platform for vindictive revenge by continuing derogatory remarks about Ashley is a mis-use of it's facilities, and afaik in breach of it's AUP.
You have had your say, and been given your airing. Now give up and shut up. This thread is supposed to be about AVI DM5 loudspeakers, not you endlessly harping on like a drama queen.
Always remember no-one would have a qualm about the company were it not for the way it chose to use forums to market its products. Hopefully, you've all learnt the lesson.
JC/JCB - I'm not bored by your diatribes, but your hypocrisy and editorialisng of the facts amuses me.
I chose to LEAVE the AVI forums some weeks ago - it's all there in print on the AVI forums if you want to read it. I CHOSE to leave, because I pulled AJ up there for his rudness, and insulting manner, and for his unfair denigration of other brands and technologies, on numerous ocassions to no avail other than being the recipient of even further abuse from him.
However, since choosing to leave the AVI forum, I have since been banned by drawing attention to more of AJ's insults, posted on the F/B page, and directed to John D, the mod here, and amongst other insulting remarks directed at members of other forums, all made by AJ.
It's not vindicitive revenge, it's telling the truth about my experiences of AJ.
I put up with it for far to long, in part out of admiration for some of AVI's technical accomplisments, and in part because I liked him.
But enough is enough.
If you want to attempt to deny me free speech, as to tell me to shut up, may I courteously suggest you do the same - I think most of the membership here are exceptionally tired of the AVI proselytising.
As to the snide drama queen remark - it takes one to know one sweetie...
