I have decided to trial a forum for the little audio company. I see many large forums tend to attract undesirables who just try and disrupt and spoil things for other members, usually ending in slanging matches. Also, the larger the forum, the greater the possibility of receiving dubious or bad advice from well intentioned, but less knowledgeable people who spend more of their time behind a keyboard than in front of a pair of speakers.
So if you'd like to join a laid back place, feel free to take a look. Even if you don't intend to post, it'd be nice to have you join as it will give me an indication that people are actually reading, even if not taking part. I appreciate some people like to research advice for their issues rather than post and ask.
