Negative, not a once. How ever I believe it worked on schpydurx

First of all, the word is however. Secondly, as a male, of course I would have wanted to see this marvel of science the Eric and photogoot built.

I believe I have but one photograph of it, and its a polaroid. I shall keep an eye out for it and scan it in. I have to believe if Eric had an image he would have included it in this post. There is likely more video footage of it than anything else.

If memory serves me we counted the nobs and buttons, and it came in somewhere over 150. The thing was astonishing to look at, but to see and heare a movie at our place was just incredible.

Do not take offense, but knobs and buttons mean nothing. Functionally, what is the difference between a 2-channel mixing board and a 96-channel mixing board? Which looks more impressive? Bells and whistles aside, does the 96-channel board have more non-redundant capabilities then a 2-channel board? No.

/end minor clarification rant.

Knobs and button's mean nothing? Perhaps. As usual, sir, you not only entirely miss the point, but you're also incorrect. Your 'mixing board' example is irrelevant. Let me explain.

You have one amp with two speakers. Your amp has four knobs. "Power," "Volume," Treble," and "Bass." Now, if you're the type of person who thinks even those last two buttons are overkill - you win. But not for the audiophile/music lover. Take those two buttons and multiply them by an entire piece of equipment to control those things with perfection. Now double that because your basic 2-speaker layout doesn't apply to our setup. Now add that amount of control to each and every component we had.

I think you may be beginning to understand that you sir, truly have, NO POINT OF REFERNCE.

What I'm saying is that the amount of knobs is irrelevant. If I wanted to, I could control everything via software providing one knob and make you cycle through the menu system to get to the control you want to adjust. The number of knobs means nothing to me, much like they mean nothing to the professional user.

Whereas you may walk into a professional recording studio and be impressed by how many knobs, buttons and sliders are available for play, it means nothing to me because it is redundant. The number of knobs does not indicate how useful a piece of hardware is, rather it's functionality does.

You're not even listening to me.

No sir, you are continuing to make an argument that is in truth a non sequitur.

Let me rephrase - you're not compreheding my words. Yes SoundBlaster makes a nice 24-bit audio card, and yes you can bring up Windows Media Player equalizer to adjust the sound of your Logitech's to play your compressed mp3's.

And someday they may be able to recreate multiple solid-state components pushing 800-total watts out of speakers as large as your Suzuki. But your current desktop is NOT going to recreate that, and no, you have no idea apparently of the type and quality of sound I'm talking about. That's ok - I'm not attacking you.

Thank you for proving to all of Eric's friends that you are nothing more then a sociopath. Do yourself a favor and stay off this blog to avoid future degradation.

I think we have all been able to sufficiently address who the 'knob' is...

It's funny, as far as entertainment value of blogs go, it only takes one...

Excellent use of the "knob" reference. 10 points to Dan. :-)
