Default Altmann Micro Machines Tera-Player Review Altmann Micro Machines Tera-Player

http://www.headfonia.com/altmann-mic...player-review/
Some thing for the mor money mor better crowd. A $1000 shuffle that can barely provide adequate volume. Of course the guy from headfonia loves it.

For that price tag you get no screen display, only WAV, no EQ, no bass boost and no sound enhancements ... BTW he didn't even spell enhancements correct, he spelled it "enchancement." ROFL

Edit: This should tell you something " ... I know that it would take the HM-801′s PCM1704 to take on the tiny Tera’s sound quality. And this is what I found: The HM-801 is still the best in recreating a live recording ambiance, and in that aspect it’s much better than the Tera-Player. ..."

nice... for $1000 no screen... and how are you going not navigate through the songlist with the 32gb version?
let's say a whole wav album has really the size of 700mb - there would still fit more than 40 albums on this weird thing

All my rational inquiries to get this thing measured got deleted from Headfonia, and I got banned. Amazing.

I can’t believe that this would surprise you by now. I though it's well know those sites have an agenda and if there is something they want to push they have no problem deleting, covering up and even banning the ones that do not agree with their agenda.

I'm not really surprised but I never thought I'd be the one getting banned. I tend to try to just calmly use rational arguments and not attack anyone personally. Oh well, I guess I'll just take being banworthy as a complement!

We know WG, but after being able to have rational discussions on a site like this it's hard to think that such censorship still occurs. I mean, I do have a tendency to be incendiary at times (ok, MOST times). But, I do it to just be a wise-ass.

Over there, when a charlatan posts, all they need do is get recognized as a "member of the trade" and they get immunity. Then the members can't voice displease at unfair practices, price gouging, ridiculous claims, etc. MOTT status gets them the right to be even BIGGER POS's,...and we either get a threat - or banned.

Me, IDGAF about the site much anymore,...I just hate that really good members don't realize all the BULLSHIT that some assholes feed them over there. No one is perfect, but DAMN!!! That place really SUX now!!!

Don’t know if you’ve noticed but I rarely go there anymore or even post unless I’m promoting a review or something interests me. The whores, warning pm’s from the owner and all the regular BS that you mention just turned me off. Prime example: Aviator skullcandy headphones, I tested a free sample out of curiosity because of what I read written and if you pay more than $30.00 for those you’ve been ripped off! But hey if the manufacture pays you to advertise on your site and throws you and your boys a few free headphones who cares about the glowing review you give them. If someone gets in your way or disagrees with your point of view, just ban them ...

If I had $1000 to spend on audio equipment,I'd rather buy the Sennheiser HD800's.

Is it just me, or is this stupid player a glorified iPod Shuffle?

This easily takes the cake for 'worst file format support'.

TDS, is the HF crowd jumping all over this?

Each time I try reading that review,the only thing on my mind is what else I could use $1,099 for instead of the piece of crap hardware the reviewer is reviewing lol I would use that money to help add more stuff to my collection of IEMs I want to own 100 one day.

Not really, and ALL of our "negative, augmentative, inflammatory, trolling" comments were removed. There are other head-fi members on there that had similar issues to mine, and they all had their comments deleted as well. I was "slanderous", so I better behave,...as usual. All it took was "MOTT" status and everything started. Even other "MOTT" status individuals were annoyed with the tera player's developer - a condescending troll. Never a straight answer, and treating others as idiotic assholes. What a twunt!!!

Yeah, I just don't even want to bother with head-fi, ever. I really don't get why people still participate in that community.

"As for "censoring" -- indeed, Head-Fi is censored"

At least they admit it (although they were referring to the removal of 'rude, abusive, libellous and similar posts').

TDS I'm surprised you aren't banned there, considering you called the guy a 'charlatan' and other stuff...

Yup, I did call him that - and I will NOT recant. He is what he is,...and I'm honest. Of all things I stay true to myself and others in that aspect. I WILL NOT LIE! If I'm mistaken I'll apologize,...
