Thread: Alternative audio websites

  1. #1

    Default Alternative audio websites

    Hi all,

    Just curious as to what other websites MLC members visit and engage.

    I know I've tried several and certainly have some opinions.

    Seems like Tom's site is the one that is most compatible with my perspective / biases regarding balance, diversity, respect, and a healthy dose of constructive (sometimes passionate) conversation and debate

    http://www.audioaficionado.org/ - which runs at a blistering pace, with one of the members clocking in at 25K posts. I like it because their classical music threads are hyper-active. While I've not run into any overtly disrespectful individuals over there, still just doesn't seem like "home" like it does here at MLO

    Todd, I noticed you just joined. AA is an excellent site. Not as "family" as here, but pretty decent. ALOT of McIntosh folks over there. I read that it started as a McIntosh forum before it became what it is today. Really nice people.

    Good for them. On my corporate web page, I wouldn't let those thread roll either.

    On topic.... I only browse around audioholics and avsforums from time to time.

    Ivan Messer (Materlu) was a member posting in the McIntosh section on Audiokarma until he and Grumpy had a falling out. Ivan then started his own site. He has a million dollars in his audio room and more McIntosh gear than many retailers. He also has Ferrari's. Needles to say he and his wife Donna are doing something right.

    Yes... his "system pics" are, I'm going to estimate, in the 0.01% domain.

    Yeah, I did a google search on him after I joined AA and WOW. The dude is sure doing something right. He also sells some equipment. Don't know if he has a store front or just out of "one" of his houses.
