One astute reader contacted us recently and asked why there was nothing on stereonet about our products as he was interested to find out more and get some user feedback but told us that the forum search always produced no results when searching for “Analog-Precision” so we had to investigate this for ourselves. For those not familiar with stereonet it is nothing more than a glorified advertising platform masquerading as some kind of ‘hifi community’ with the members being used as its captive audience but it is anything but a hifi community with its draconian style of censorship and restrictions unless you are willing to pay the $$$ to have some of them removed :(

Anyway check it out. It seems the reader was onto something here with a search for 'Analog-Precision' yielding absolutely nothing. Maybe I have got the spelling wrong but I checked numerous times and each time it yields 0 results. So the plot thickens ;)



Perhaps it is not returning a result because there is nothing to find ? I told the reader who contacted me that they probably didn’t find anything on stereonet because we have been blacklisted and the only thread that was specific to the Preamp has been completely removed by the owner of that forum, however I had the foresight to grab a copy of the thread before it disappeared and have provided a link at the end of this post where you can download it. The reason why this happened is that I believe the owner of that forum and one of its paying sponsors tried to undermine our business by attempting to siphon away prospective customers from us at a critical time of the pre-order for our 2nd generation Preamps. When I complained about it on this forum I received a very abrupt and threating PM from the owner of stereonet requesting that I remove a couple of statements which I refused to do and the rest is history ! Neither statements had anything to do with the underlying issue but more about the so called reputation of the owner of stereonet. 

You will also notice that we have not been added to their list of Australia made product websites even though we probably make one of the most sophisticated and technically advanced consumer audio products in Australia at the moment ! Apparently our website was added only for a very short period of time before it was pulled again ! Check it out analog-precision is missing in action !



Perhaps they don’t think we are worthy of any addition because in the owners own words we are just a bunch of ‘hacks’ struggling to get something to market whilst the owner of stereonet was hatching up plans with one of its paying sponsors to steal away prospective customers from us at a critical time ! And I am glad he agreed that our product works because I don't think he has ever created anything himself or understands how difficult it is !



Having said that, there are still some remnants and old posts that refer to our product or website on stereonet but we had to dig hard just to find one of them as the search engine has been crippled for anything to do with us !

To prove the forum search is not broken let’s try some other search terms such as ‘minidsp’ which I believe is not a sponsor but gets plenty of free plugs every day and all day long. Go figure ! All 22 pages of search results which reference this particular brand !! Not bad for a vendor that doesn't pay a single cent of sponsorship !



For what it is worth I had the foresight to take a copy of the only thread about the Ultimate-Preamplifier Mk-1 before it had been completely removed and have made it available below as a pdf download below including the owner requesting that I apologize to him which he later retracted from that thread before he removed the thread altogether! I won’t be apologizing to him for anything as he has a number of apologies to make to others before he seeks redemption for his own misdeeds.  Funnily enough I wasn’t banned out right although I can still log on but not post or access the PM’s but this was a while ago and I haven’t checked since !!

Ok i thought perhaps the search doesn't like the hyphen between analog and precision in my URL so just did a search for 'precision.com' and see what happens. So ch-precision.com is searchable but analog-precision.com is not. Someone with sour grapes here probably because I refused to pay my protection money :D

We have split this thread up into two threads because we though the remaining posts deserved their own thread and rightfully so !! Click here to see the other thread

More free plugs for another chinese branded non sponsored product - in fact 46 pages worth !! Try and get this much exposure on this forum if you are a local vendor without getting an email from the owner wanting you to cough up the $$$ ! I think not :( BTW starting fee is 2k a year and beyond that it varies from 1k a month to 5k a month unless of course you are a certain local amplifier manufacturer that gets a lifetime of free plugs from the mods :(  China-Hifi must be laughing all of the way to the bank thanks to stereonet. Ozzy ozzy ozzy - oi oi oi ! :D LOL

Rushton is an idiot. Directing all that traffic away from his own paying sponsors to a Chinese vendor. All for free. You better delete all those threads matey. You're good at censorship.

Well done you idiot.
Nothing to see here. Move along
