Stereophile review of Millercarbon system featuring Tektron speakers

Looks like the former forum (?) member is active on a new venue and format.  Good for him:

Millercarbon Review at Stereophile


He looks so friendly in the photo.  

I suspect it's one of those things where someone is really nice and normal in person but their online persona, being buffered by the ether from actual human interaction, is the opposite.  

It's too bad because there is knowledge to be shared there, but not desirable if it has to come with the condescension and the vitriol it creates. 

I try not to say anything online I wouldn't say to someone's face.  Haven't always succeeded, but it is on my mind. 

@gladmo I disagree and wonder how you could even say that.  Now it could simply be what he was playing (Belafonte), or that fact that I went on the first day,  but his system sounded very ordinary.  I own upgraded Moabs and know how great they can sound carefully set up but the Millercarbon room was not special.  I was expecting much more.  And I have heard his system set up in his home a few years ago and it was much better there.  So perhaps just the room acoustics.

His room was one of the only setups that created a good depth to the sound stage. Great performance for the dollar for his room.


Good on you for recognizing the online vs in person interaction dynamics. I run into mouthiness online but not in person. I guess it’s different when a person is out of slapping distance, haha. 

I try like you do to treat people well online or otherwise. 

Thanks for striving to be a gentlemen! 

Sorry to break the subject. I haven’t received the “recap” for a couple weeks. Am I the only one?

This isn't even on the Millercarbon website. Lotta other stuff, not this. People know from being at the show, reading Stereophile, etc.
