What prompted me to post at all was that you warned about the units shutting down and running hot without detailing the situation enough. If you are going to make a claim that the unit shuts down, you need to provide some details for readers to assess the validity of your statement.I really do not think that I could provide you, or anyone else with more details than I already have. The problems do exist, I am not the only person experiencing them and they are referred to quite commonly in HTF and other forums, as I have shown.
You did slam me with the comment about abusing my equipment. It was a feeble attempt to prove to yourself that your argument had validity by submitting a personal attack against the person who had an opposite view. I think everyone else here knows that, and agrees that HTF is not the place for such juvenile behavior.
I have said over and over again that I am quite happy to be done arguing with you. That does not mean that I will lay down and let you get "the last word" by comparing me to a Honda civic courier driver", the answer is no.
I have made my points in an honest forthright and generally knowledgeable manner. I have done this for those who would not have had the other side of the story if it were not for me. I know people get excited when they buy a new product, I do it myself, and generally they do not want to hear anyone point out its deficiencies.
This does not mean that when you do buy a new product and you are all charged up about it, that you should tout the product above all others in a public forum where people come to get balanced views to make their own decisions.
When you were telling everyone that could read this forum to buy the Kenwood VR-6070, you had only owned the unit yourself for maybe a few days or a week, and I am fairly sure from your posts, you had not yet figured out all the features and controls. You need to have some time under your belt with a receiver before you go telling every new person on the forum that it is the best thing in the world for the money.
It may not be, especially if the person is like me, and figures out a few months down the line that it just will not do what he/she expected it to do. In that case, even at $300 it is a waste of time and money. That was my point all along, and you never conceded that. You did try to make me sound foolish however, and that is why this thread has gone on so long. I don't generally accept being treated as a fool lightly.
You have misquoted me on several very important points in this forum. You have attacked me with comments about abusing my equipment. And you will not let bygones be bygones even though you continually claim that "this thread is long enough already", instead you comeback for one more jab, time after time.
If you own it, and love it, that’s great! Just don't attack the messenger when you hear things you do not like to hear about your favorite new toy.
Time to mature a little, enjoy life and enjoy your sound system. Make babies, whatever you need to do... Just don't come back here and belittle my opinions, my facts, my proof, or my person. You should be above all that. I know I am.
