I didn't say they were ill-fitting recommendations, just that they're stale. I agree with everything you said. Budget is a massive constraint on recommendations, but the Anthem is in the same price bracket as most recommendations, so it was nice to see it get a little recognition. Hell, you can look at my posts and see the recommendations don't change - its the same old same old because the same questions get asked. I also don't disagree with what gets recommended 99% of the time. At the same time, I love when the "hifi" guys go on a quest and ask for help. I learn quite a bit during those simply through people throwing out brands that I had never heard of. Due to the rarity though, I've gone elsewhere to get that experience.
I was merely commenting on the refreshing aspect of this thread. There is nothing to read between the lines this time.
